Bitcoin Cash – ABC – Sees More Red

Bitcoin Cash ABC fell by 2.59% on Saturday. Reversing a 1.49% gain from Friday, Bitcoin Cash ABC ended the day at $343.85.

A bearish start to the day saw Bitcoin Cash ABC fall from an early morning intraday high $353 to a late morning intraday low $333.64.

Falling short of the major resistance levels, Bitcoin Cash ABC fell through the first major support level at $341.45.

An early afternoon recovery to $348 levels was short-lived, with Bitcoin Cash ABC sliding back through the first major support level.

Support late in the day led to a move back to $340 levels to limit the downside on the day.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash ABC was down 1% to $340.41. In the early morning, Bitcoin Cash ABC rose to a morning high $344.34 before falling to a low $340.41.

Bitcoin Cash ABC left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead, a move back through to $344 levels would support a run at $350 levels. Bitcoin Cash ABC would need the support of the broader market, however, to break through the first major resistance level at $353.35.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Saturday’s high $353 and the first major resistance level would limit the upside on the day.

Failure to move back through to $344 levels could see Bitcoin Cash ABC fall deeper into the red. A fall through to $337 levels would bring the first major support level at $333.99 into play.

Barring another crypto meltdown, Bitcoin Cash ABC should steer clear of sub-$330 support levels on the day.

Litecoin Recovers to $100

Litecoin fell by 3.88% on Saturday. Reversing a 2.08% rise from Friday, Litecoin ended the day at $101.15.

A particularly bearish morning saw Litecoin slide from an intraday high $105.51 to a late morning low $99.63.

Steering clear of the major resistance levels, Litecoin fell through the first major support level at $101.5.

Finding support in the late morning, Litecoin recovered to $104 levels before sliding to a late intraday low $97.5

Falling back through the first major support level, Litecoin also fell through the 38.2% FIB of $99 and second major support level at $97.84.

Late support led to a move back through to $101 levels.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 0.6% to $100.54. A mixed start to the day saw Litecoin fall from a morning high $101.91 to a low $98.98 before finding support.

Steering clear of the major support and resistance levels, the 38.2% FIB of $99 limited the downside early on.

For the day ahead, a move back through to $101.4 levels would support a bounce back later in the day.

Litecoin would need to move through to $103 levels, however, to take a run at the first major resistance level at $105.27.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Saturday’s high $105.51 and the first major resistance level would limit any upside.

Failure to move back through to $101.4 levels could see Litecoin test the 23.6% FIB of $99. Barring another crypto meltdown, Litecoin should steer clear of the first major support level at $97.26.

Ripple’s XRP Finds Support

Ripple’s XRP fell by 3.65% on Saturday. Partially reversing a 4.45% rally from Friday, Ripple’s XRP ended the day at $0.3309.

Tracking the broader market, Ripple’s XRP slid from an intraday high $0.34413 to a late morning low $0.32742.

Steering clear of the major support and resistance levels, Ripple’s XRP recovered to $0.33 levels before hitting reverse.

A late afternoon sell-off saw Ripple’s XRP fall to an intraday low $0.323 before recovering to $0.33 levels.

The late pullback saw Ripple’s XRP find support at the first major support level at $0.3255.

At the time of writing, Ripple’s XRP was down by 0.53% to $0.32916. A mixed morning saw Ripple’s XRP rise to a morning high $0.33435 before falling to a low $0.32665.

Ripple’s XRP left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead, a move back through to $0.3330 levels would support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.3424.

Ripple’s XRP would need support from the broader market, however, to break through to $0.34 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $0.34413 would cap any upside.

Failure to move back through to $0.3330 levels could see Ripple’s XRP take a hit. A fall through to $0.3250 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.3212 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of the second major support level at $0.3115.

Soon, an official announcement followed, revealing that the trading platform had lost around 3.5 billion yen (roughly $32 million) as a result of a security breach.

Nevertheless, the security breach seems to continue the streak of hacks targeting Japan-based exchanges.

Details of the hack

According to the breakdown of the hack published by Bitpoint’s parent firm, Remixpoint Inc., Bitcoin (BTC) accounted for the highest share of total losses.

Is There a Future for Privacy Coins in the United States? » The Merkle Hash

Cryptocurrencies which provides users with privacy and anonymity are often looked down upon by politicians and other officials. Especially in the US, privacy coins such as Monero and ZCash might face an uphill battle in the future. The most recent White House press conference only confirms these currencies are designed for criminals and no one else. 

The Stigmas Remain

For quite some time now, the term “privacy coins” is associated with illegal activity on the internet and in the real world. This is primarily because of the privacy and anonymity features these currencies tend to provide to its users. In the case of Monero, for example, it is impossible to determine who owns how many coins, or who is sending and receiving transactions. This makes it a thorn in the side of government officials and financial experts, as they only see the negative side of this…

‘I like bitcoin,’ says House GOP leader McCarthy, hits Facebook Libra

single-image


House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told CNBC on Tuesday that he likes the decentralized nature and the security of bitcoin.

“I like bitcoin” and the security of the blockchain ledger technology behind cryptocurrencies, the California Republican said, as he criticized Facebook’s plans for a Libra digital coin ahead of hearings on Capitol Hill this week.

Libra will be pegged to a basket of government-backed money, compared with bitcoin, which is highly volatile in price and derives value from factors including its ability to enable instantaneous, anonymous, global payments and as an investment.

Nobody controls bitcoin.

McCarthy did, however, say that bitcoin is not where it needs to be yet, alluding to the risks of cryptocurrencies being used by criminals and money launderers.

While Libra promises more stability, McCarthy remains concerned.

“When I’m on Facebook, I’m not the customer, I’m the product,” he said. “Facebook is free because…
