  • The total crypto market cap is climbing higher steadily and recently tested the $237.0B level.
  • Bitcoin price is placed nicely above the $8,000 level and it remains supported near $7,800.
  • Litecoin (LTC) price is moving higher towards the $95.00 and $100.00 resistance levels.
  • Bitcoin cash price is currently correcting lower, but it remains supported near $385 and $380.
  • EOS price is now well above the $6.00 level and it seems like the bulls could clear $6.20.
  • Stellar (XLM) price is up more than 10% and it recently cleared the $0.1150 resistance level.

The crypto market cap is gaining pace towards $250 billion, with positive moves in bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). Altcoins such as LTC, ripple, bitcoin cash, EOS, TRX, and stellar remain in an uptrend.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Bitcoin cash price rallied sharply this week and even tested the main $400 resistance against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair failed to stay above the $400 level and recently corrected lower below $395 and $390. An immediate support is near the $385 level, below which the price could test the $380 support.

On the upside, the main resistances are near $395 and $400. A proper close above the $400 barrier could push the price towards the $415 and $420 levels in the near term.

Litecoin (LTC), EOS and Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis

Litecoin price traded above the $85.00 and $90.00 resistance levels. LTC price is now trading above the $92.00 level and it seems like the price may clear the $95.00 resistance. The next crucial barrier for the bulls is near the $100.00 level.

EOS price gained bullish momentum after it broke the $5.80 resistance level. The price climbed significantly and broke the $6.00 and $6.10 levels. EOS is currently well supported and it seems like it could soon break $6.20 and trade towards the $6.40 level.

Stellar price settled above the key $0.1000 resistance level and started a nice upward move. XLM price cleared the key $0.1100 and $0.1120 resistance levels to move into a positive zone. The price is now up more than 12% and it seems like the bulls are aiming a break above the $0.1200 resistance level in the near term.

Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap 4-hours chart, there was a steady rise above the $215.0B and $220.0B resistances. The market cap recently broke the $230.0B barrier and climbed towards the $238.0B level. A swing high was formed near $237.3B level and it is currently elevated above $232.0B. It seems like there is a rising channel in place with support near $226.0B. Therefore, there are chances of more upsides in bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, litecoin, ripple, XLM, BCH, ADA, BNB, TRX, ICX, and other altcoins in the coming sessions.

Bitcoin may be touted as one top crypto headed for a major bull run in the near future, but it turns out that not everyone is of that opinion – at least not Leah Wald. However, others like Fundstrat’s Tom Lee have long emphasized that the crypto winter is officially over, especially after Bitcoin’s charts formed the Golden Cross that’s recognized as a sign for an impending bull run.

Still, according to Leah Wald, Bitcoin’s price could fall back to $1,000 in the event of a severe retracement – unless it can surge up to reach the previous ATH and possibly break the record to trade above $20,000. Leah Wald is a cryptoanalyst and a former World Bank economist.

According to Cameron while some think you would be mad to invest in BTC, he states that you would be crazy not too, equating the rise of cryptocurrencies to the “future of money”

The central bank of Russia believes that the draft bill on crypto regulation is prepared enough to be adopted in the spring of 2019, local news agency TASS reports on May 22.

Olga Skorobogatova, first deputy governor of the Russian central bank, has stated that the bank expects the crypto bill, “On Digital Financial Assets” (DFA), to be adopted during the spring session in 2019 in accordance with the order of the country’s president, Vladimir Putin.

Speaking at a recent meeting of the Parliament, Skorobogatova argued that the DFA, as well as a draft law on crowdfunding and other crypto-related bills, are at a “sufficiently high degree of preparedness” to be adopted during the session.

The official has also emphasized that all those draft laws are “crucial for the country and will allow for the implementation of new projects.” Conversely, Russian prime minister and former president Dmitry Medvedev had…

SEC Bullish on Bitcoin, Bearish on Alts

OK, so we may not call the SEC exactly ‘bullish’ on Bitcoin. In fact, quietly cautious at best, downright suspicious at worst.

But at least the regulatory body has it clear that Bitcoin is not a security. It’s even considering Bitcoin ETF proposals, albeit at a glacially slow pace.

The same cannot be said for the majority of ICOs. While there are rumors of change on the horizon, it appears that for now, they…
