Fizyczne banknoty Bitcoin może być tuż za rogiem

Fizyczne banknoty Bitcoin może być tuż za rogiem

Fizyczny Bitcoin może być w drodze dzięki Noteworthy, startupowi skupionemu na tworzeniu najwyższej klasy banknotów opartych na Bitcoinie.

Więc myślisz, że BTC to pieniądz cyfrowy? Pomyśl jeszcze raz, Bitcoin może wkrótce stać się fizyczną rzeczą.

Nowy startup pracuje nad stworzeniem pierwszych banknotów opartych na bitcoinie, których celem jest sprawienie, aby Bitcoin Millionaire nadawał się do transakcji offline, usprawniając doświadczenie dla użytkowników, którzy nie są obeznani z technologią.

Startup nazywa się Noteworthy. Jest to inicjatywa stworzona przez byłego dyrektora Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) Departamentu Skarbu USA Larry’ego Felixa oraz prezesa założyciela Bitcoin Foundation Petera Vessenesa.

Bitcoin: system fizycznej gotówki Peer to Peer

Jedynym i głównym celem Noteworthy wydaje się być przywrócenie Bitcoina do świata rzeczywistego, chociaż zespół nie podzielił się jeszcze fizyczną próbką tego, jak zamierzają to zrobić. Jednakże, referencje wszystkich członków zarządu i wyjaśnienia udostępnione na oficjalnym PR nadają dużo wagi ofercie Noteworthy.

„Każdy banknot jest wyposażony w bezpieczny mikroprocesor kryptograficzny, a wykorzystując wszystkie najwyższe zabezpieczenia przemysłu banknotowego, banknoty Noteworthy będą wyglądać i czuć się jak waluta najwyższej klasy, zapewniając jednocześnie najwyższy stopień bezpieczeństwa cyfrowego bezpośrednio wbudowanego w każdy banknot.“

Zastosowanie tak zaawansowanej technologii sprawia, że każdy unikalny banknot jest prawie niemożliwy do powielenia, podrobienia lub modyfikacji. Według Noteworthy, banknoty posiadają te same standardy jakości i bezpieczeństwa, co oficjalne banknoty fiat. „Podczas gdy cyfrowe aktywa stają się coraz bardziej popularne, wciąż brakuje im poziomu zaufania, znajomości i dostępności, które zapewnia fizyczny banknot.“ powiedział Noteworthy

Idea fizycznego Bitcoina krążyła w głowach wielu entuzjastów kryptowalut od dłuższego czasu. Jeden z najbardziej krytycznych przypadków użycia odnosi się do miejsc z ograniczonym dostępem do Internetu. Właśnie w bardziej zubożałych obszarach, gdzie obfituje populacja nieubankowiona, dostęp do Internetu jest bardzo słaby, więc kryptowaluty nie mają miejsca na rozwój.

Niektóre fizyczne inicjatywy Bitcoin są nastawione bardziej na kolekcjonowanie niż na tworzenie prawdziwych pieniędzy. Na przykład, firmy takie jak Titan Bitcoin wydają pamiątkowe monety z kluczami do portfela z określoną ilością bitcoinów w środku, również niektóre fundusze eksperymentowały z fizycznie wspieranymi kryptowalutowymi ETP i podobnymi ofertami, aby zapewnić pewną ekspozycję cenową.

Jednak narzędzie, takie jak prawdziwe pieniądze, musi jeszcze zostać odpowiednio wdrożone. Jeśli Noteworthy wystartuje, będzie miał świat możliwości na wyciągnięcie ręki.

Peter Vessenes wyraził swój entuzjazm i zaufanie do zespołu Noteworthy. Zapewnił, że jeśli ktoś chce robić rachunki Bitcoin, to ta firma ma odpowiedni zespół.

„Myślę o tym projekcie jako ‚Bitcoin zatrudnił najlepszy na świecie zespół do produkcji banknotów … Kiedy zacząłem pracować w Bitcoin, 1 BTC był wart mniej niż 0,0005$. Dziś rozmawiamy o banknocie o wartości 50 000 dolarów. To niesamowita rzecz i jestem super podekscytowany, że Larry, Manuela i Thomas wprowadzają ją w życie!“

Jak społeczność Bitcoin przetrawi ten pomysł? Trudno powiedzieć, zwłaszcza, że wielu zwolenników kryptowaluty Bitcoin marzy dzień po dniu o społeczeństwie bezgotówkowym. Jednak biorąc pod uwagę, że Bitcoin jest po prostu nowym, innym systemem pieniężnym, pójście w stronę fizyczności może nie być szalonym pomysłem.

Binance Smart Chain overtakes Ethereum in terms of daily transactions

Launched only 6 months ago, Binance’s parallel blockchain has already managed to overtake Ethereum in number of transactions. But is Binance Smart Chain a serious competitor?

Binance Smart Chain’s daily transactions exceed those of Ethereum …

Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, communicated on this progression, comparing the Smart Chain to Ethereum:

“Today is an important day. Binance Smart Chain has overtaken Ethereum in terms of daily transactions. This validates the logic that lower fees attract more projects and users. We will continue to work with the BSC community to promote low fees, even as BNB is on the rise, to build more stuff. “

There are now reportedly more than 1.6 million daily transactions on Binance Smart Chain, compared to 1.3 million for Ethereum. In addition, as Binance recalled yesterday, the transaction fees amount to 0.04 dollars for the Smart Chain against around 5.53 dollars over the same period for Bitcoin Era.

Is Binance Smart Chain a strong competitor to Ethereum?

This is the question the community is asking, at a time when Ethereum’s fees have exploded and often reach well over 5 dollars . But commentators cite a major obstacle to Binance Smart Chain: its centralization, which is deemed excessive. Some Twitter users recalled that the nodes of the BSC are authorized by a single entity, which does not make it particularly an example of decentralization. In addition, its governance model is similar to that of EOS, with only 21 validators .

But the attractiveness of cost has always been a major selling point for Binance, and these low fees could indeed allow it to gain a foothold in the industry. Binance Smart Chain has a second advantage: it is compatible with Ethereum tools and its Virtual Machine. The hegemony of Binance, which no longer hides its ambitions of becoming „the Google of cryptos“, could therefore allow the BSC to be more adopted …

MasterCard kündigt Unterstützung für Krypto in seinem Netzwerk an

Mit MasterCard können fast eine Milliarde Benutzer Kryptowährungen bei mehr als 30 Millionen Händlern ausgeben, obwohl nicht angegeben wurde, welche Münzen unterstützt werden sollen.

MasterCard hat Pläne zur Unterstützung von Kryptowährungen im Jahr 2021 angekündigt, die den Weg für fast eine Milliarde Benutzer ebnen, digitale Assets bei mehr als 30 Millionen Händlern auszugeben

Das Unternehmen ist der Ansicht, dass dies Händler für neue Kunden öffnen und die Loyalität zu bestehenden Kunden stärken kann, die bereits über herkömmliche Fiat-Optionen auf digitale Assets umsteigen.

„Es geht um die Wahl. MasterCard ist nicht hier, um Ihnen die Verwendung von Kryptowährungen zu empfehlen. Aber wir sind hier, um Kunden, Händlern und Unternehmen die Möglichkeit zu geben, den digitalen Wert zu steigern. “

Während der globale Zahlungsriese feststellte, dass er aufgrund seiner „Zuverlässigkeit und Sicherheit“ die Unterstützung von Bitcoin System plant, lehnte Mastercard es ab, bestimmte Kryptowährungen zu nennen, die integriert werden sollen.

Mastercard bot jedoch vier Kernkriterien an, anhand derer potenzielle Vermögenswerte bewertet werden: robuster Verbraucherschutz, einschließlich Datenschutz und Sicherheit der Verbraucher, strikte Einhaltung der KYC-Bestimmungen, Einhaltung lokaler Gesetze und Vorschriften sowie Stabilität als Zahlungsmittel.

MasterCard bemerkte auch, dass es „aktiv mit mehreren großen Zentralbanken auf der ganzen Welt zusammenarbeitet“, um Initiativen für digitale Währungen (CBDCs) der Zentralbank zu unterstützen.

Im vergangenen Jahr veröffentlichte das Unternehmen ein „Virtual Sandbox“ -Tool, um zu demonstrieren, wie ein CBDC zur Abwicklung von Verbraucherkäufen mithilfe der MasterCard-Infrastruktur verwendet werden kann.

In der Ankündigung von MasterCard wurde auch eine steigende Nachfrage nach digitalen Assets bei seinen Kunden gemeldet

Viele Benutzer haben im aktuellen Bullenmarkt Krypto-Assets mit ihren MasterCards gekauft.

„Digitale Assets werden zu einem immer wichtigeren Bestandteil der Zahlungswelt“, schloss MasterCard.

„Wir sind hier, um Kunden, Händlern und Unternehmen die Möglichkeit zu geben, den digitalen Wert – traditionell oder kryptografisch – nach Belieben zu bewegen. Es sollte Ihre Wahl sein, es ist Ihr Geld.“

Ethereum cruza US $ 700 pela primeira vez desde 2018

A moeda nativa de Ethereum quebrou US $ 700 pela primeira vez em mais de dois anos. O ativo acompanhou o movimento violento do Bitcoin para cima durante o período de Natal.

Ethereum acabou de ultrapassar $ 700. É o preço mais alto que o ativo negociou desde maio de 2018.

Ethereum de volta acima de $ 700

A moeda digital teve um bom desempenho nas últimas semanas, após o lançamento do Ethereum 2.0 em 1º de dezembro. Seu valor aumentou cerca de 12% hoje.

O principal fator para isso pode ser o fervor do Natal em torno do Bitcoin: nos últimos três dias, a criptografia original teve um salto de 16% no preço. Atingiu um recorde histórico de $ 25.000 no dia de Natal e tem aumentado desde então. Agora é negociado a $ 26.796.

ETH frequentemente segue os movimentos de preços do BTC. Quando o BTC parece otimista, a ETH e outras moedas digitais tendem a atrair liquidez logo em seguida. Ao contrário do BTC, porém, a ETH ainda está 50% abaixo de seu preço mais alto.

A proporção ETH: BTC é atualmente de 0,025 (em janeiro de 2018, atingiu o pico em cerca de 0,1).

No entanto, os sinais permanecem positivos para os crentes do Ethereum. Seguindo o crescimento exponencial do DeFi em 2020, o valor total bloqueado em protocolos nativos do Ethereum como Aave , Synthetix e Uniswap está atualmente em US $ 13,3 bilhões, e agora há mais de 1 milhão de usuários.

Se o DeFi continuar a crescer no Ethereum no mesmo ritmo em 2021, sua moeda nativa pode muito bem seguir o exemplo.

Coinbase partners with Goldman Sachs for IPO

The crypto exchange has connections to the investment bank via a board member and is now using this to its advantage.

The crypto exchange Coinbase is said to have approached the large investment bank Goldman Sachs as part of its planned IPO

This could be an important step in advancing the mass readiness of the crypto industry.

Citing two internal sources , Business Insider reported on Friday that Coinbase hired Goldman Sachs to handle its IPO. However, no precise details are known in this regard.

The crypto exchange has had connections with Goldman Sachs for years through Fred Ehrsam, one of the co-founders of Coinbase

As Business Insider reports, Ehrsam worked at the investment bank from 2010 to 2012 before he left it to found Coinbase together with Brian Armstrong .

Although Ehrsam left the crypto exchange again in 2017, he continues to sit on its board.

The BI report comes a day after Coinbase disclosed that it filed for an initial public offering (IPO) with the SEC.

LATAM bitcoin exchange Bitso recebe investimento de $62M da Kaszek Ventures e QED Investors

Com mais de 200 funcionários de 25 países diferentes, este representa o primeiro grande investimento em criptografia na região, já que Bitso pretende conquistar o Brasil e o resto da América Latina…

Bitso Exchange Dlt

Bitso, uma plataforma de troca criptográfica líder na América Latina, fundada em 2014, anunciou hoje que fechou uma rodada de US$ 62 milhões da Série B liderada por distintas empresas de investimento Kaszek Ventures e QED Investors. Isto reúne dois dos fundos de risco de maior sucesso na indústria fintech e na América Latina que trabalharam juntos com sucesso em líderes de mercado, incluindo Nubank, Creditas, QuintoAndar e Kavak e esperam adicionar a Bitso a essa lista também. Nigel Morris da QED e Nicolas Szekasy da Kaszek juntaram-se à diretoria. Os acionistas existentes Coinbase Ventures e Pantera Capital também se juntaram à rodada.

Esta rodada de financiamento solidifica a posição da Bitso como a plataforma de moeda criptográfica dominante na América Latina.

Eles já dominam a região com mais de um milhão de usuários, mais de 95% de participação de mercado no México, e recentemente lançaram o Brasil com grande feedback inicial. O novo financiamento irá alimentar a próxima etapa do crescimento da Bitso nestes novos mercados e ajudará a alimentar sua equipe de engenharia enquanto constrói os principais produtos criptográficos para a América Latina.

„Nossa missão é dar acesso universal à moeda criptográfica e tornar a criptografia útil para as pessoas em sua vida diária“, disse Daniel Vogel, CEO e Co-Fundador da Bitso. „Trabalhar com as brilhantes e experientes equipes da QED e Kaszek Ventures nos ajudará a levar adiante esta missão“. O investimento de hoje irá financiar nossa estratégia global para oferecer a plataforma Bitso aos consumidores de outros países da América Latina com um foco particular no Brasil“.

Os executivos da Bitso estão comprometidos com uma abordagem global

A empresa lançou uma expansão internacional em 2020, eles já abriram um beta fechado no Brasil com surpreendente tração inicial, além de lançar publicamente na Argentina e imediatamente escalar para uma participação de mercado relatada de 75%. A Bitso planeja expandir para mais países da América Latina e regiões ao redor do mundo nos próximos meses.

O financiamento da série B que a Bitso anunciou hoje representa a primeira incursão em moeda criptográfica tanto para a QED Investors como para a Kaszek Ventures.

„A Bitso construiu o ecossistema criptográfico líder na América Latina e está crescendo a uma taxa exponencial. A equipe é de longe a mais forte da região e combina um profundo conhecimento técnico com uma grande compreensão do mercado“, disse Nicolas Szekasy, Co-Fundador e Sócio-Gerente da Kaszek Ventures. „Desde o seu lançamento, eles desenvolveram uma plataforma proprietária que inclui funcionalidades de intercâmbio, capacidades transfronteiriças e recursos bancários que permitem aos usuários operar no mundo criptográfico de uma forma intuitiva e sem problemas“.

„A QED tem mantido o pulso no mercado de criptografia por muito tempo e Bitso em particular. Tem sido uma alegria ver a empresa crescer e expandir-se por toda a América Latina e estamos entusiasmados em incluir a Bitso como o primeiro investimento criptográfico da QED em nosso portfólio“ disse Nigel Morris, Co-Fundador e Sócio-Gerente da QED Investors. „A criptografia de poder tem que interromper e inovar os serviços financeiros tradicionais é inexorável e estamos ansiosos para usar nosso conhecimento e experiência operacional para ajudar a Bitso a alcançar exatamente isso“.

Jack Dorsey’s Square investe 10 milioni di dollari per promuovere l’energia verde per le miniere Bitcoin

Jack Dorsey’s Square prevede di investire 10 milioni di dollari per promuovere l’adozione dell’energia verde nell’industria mineraria Bitcoin.

Secondo un comunicato stampa ufficiale di oggi, la società statunitense di servizi finanziari Square ha lanciato una nuova iniziativa per l’azienda per diventare net-zero carbon per le operazioni entro il 2030.

Square investe 10 milioni di dollari

Come parte del piano, la società guidata da Jack Dorsey stanzierà 10 milioni di dollari per la sua Bitcoin Clean Energy Investment Initiative, che intende finanziare le società che guidano l’adozione e la ricerca sull’uso dell’energia verde per le operazioni minerarie Bitcoin.

La Bitcoin è spesso criticata per il suo pesante consumo di elettricità, che rende l’estrazione mineraria un business costoso. Uno studio del 2019 ha valutato la produzione totale di carbonio della Bitcoin come simile a quella di alcuni piccoli paesi.

Man mano che il settore minerario Bitcoin diventa più competitivo, i principali minatori si stanno spostando verso aree che stanno già producendo energia in eccesso per massimizzare i margini di profitto.

Promuovere l’energia verde

Sebbene i minatori stiano progressivamente utilizzando energia verde per le loro operazioni, Square sta cercando di accelerare il cambiamento. La società prevede di reinvestire il profitto generato nel progetto per espandere l’iniziativa.

Il co-fondatore e CEO della società, Jack Dorsey, ha dichiarato di credere che l’estrazione mineraria Bitcoin un giorno sarà alimentata interamente da energia pulita, escludendo la sua impronta di carbonio e guidando l’adozione delle energie rinnovabili a livello globale.

Square spera di ridurre il suo impatto sull’ambiente attraverso il suo portale per la rimozione del carbonio, che sarà lanciato all’inizio del 2021. L’azienda ha già tracciato il suo percorso verso un’impronta di carbonio neutrale.

Un’azienda che ama Bitcoin

Dato che Square ha interessi finanziari in Bitcoin, il suo impegno ambientale è rivolto a una delle più grandi controversie della crittovaluta.

Come società finanziaria, Square permette ai suoi clienti di effettuare pagamenti attraverso i loro dispositivi mobili. Square è anche l’azienda dietro CashApp, una popolare applicazione che permette ai clienti di acquistare e vendere BTC.

Square considera Bitcoin come una parte unica della sua impronta. Lo studio acquista la crittovaluta per conto dei clienti di CashApp.

La società è anche recentemente diventata una delle prime società quotate in borsa ad adottare Bitcoin come attività di riserva di tesoreria. Questa mossa non è stata inaspettata in quanto Dorsey è sempre stato un sostenitore di Bitcoin.

L’amministratore delegato ha menzionato molte volte che il bitcoin diventerà la valuta nativa di Internet.

È probabile che il furto di bitcoin aumenterà nella scarsa economia post-COVID: rapporto

Tuttavia, i criminali informatici potrebbero favorire una criptovaluta diversa nei prossimi mesi.

Secondo un nuovo rapporto del fornitore di sicurezza informatica e antivirus Kaspersky Lab, è probabile che le frodi e i furti legati alla criptovaluta crescano nel mondo post-COVID-19

Securelist, il braccio di ricerca sulle minacce informatiche di Kaspersky, ha pubblicato un rapporto sulle minacce informatiche per le organizzazioni finanziarie, prevedendo alcuni tipi specifici di attacchi finanziari che potrebbero aumentare nel 2021.

Securelist ha previsto che un’ondata di povertà alimentata dalla pandemia COVID-19 porterà inevitabilmente a „più persone che ricorrono alla criminalità, compreso il crimine informatico“. Ciò potrebbe anche significare un aumento dei crimini legati a Bitcoin ( BTC ).

Secondo il braccio di ricerca di Kaspersky, è probabile che Bitcoin sia la risorsa più interessante per il crimine informatico perché è la risorsa digitale più popolare. Il rapporto recita:

„Potremmo vedere alcune economie crollare e le valute locali precipitare, il che renderebbe il furto di Bitcoin molto più attraente. Dovremmo aspettarci più frodi, mirate principalmente a BTC, poiché questa criptovaluta è la più popolare „.

I ricercatori di Securelist hanno anche suggerito che gli autori online potrebbero passare a risorse digitali più incentrate sulla privacy come Monero ( XMR ). Secondo l’azienda, questo passaggio avverrebbe a causa delle crescenti „capacità tecniche di monitoraggio, deanonimizzazione e sequestro di BTC“. Il rapporto di Securelist recita:

„Dovremmo aspettarci che i criminali informatici passino alle criptovalute di transito per addebitare le vittime. C’è un motivo per credere che potrebbero passare ad altre valute migliorate per la privacy, come Monero, per utilizzarle prima come valuta di transizione e quindi convertire i fondi in qualsiasi altra criptovaluta di scelta, incluso BTC „.

Come riportato in precedenza da Cointelegraph, i crimini legati alle criptovalute sono rallentati in modo significativo nel 2020, sebbene alcuni settori crittografici, come la finanza decentralizzata, siano diventati nuovi focolai di attività criminale. Secondo un rapporto della società di reti private virtuali Atlas VPN, è probabile che gli hack legati a crittografia e blockchain continuino a diminuire nel 2021.

Bitcoin is accepted for US passport services via Peninsula Visa

US citizens can now pay for certain passport services in Bitcoin.

Peninsula Visa will partner with Coinbase Commerce to offer this payment option.

Although this is a first in the United States, Venezuela had already experimented with passport payments in BTC.

US citizens can now pay for certain passport services with Bitcoin . Peninsula Visa announced on November 11 the change in its accepted payment methods.

Anticipating an increasingly digital post-coronavirus world, the company describes the service as “the right thing at the right time”.

Peninsula Visa Becomes First U.S. Shipping Service To Accept Bitcoin

Peninsula Visa, a US passport and visa issuing company, now accepts bitcoin payments for some of its services. According to a press release, the company will allow its customers to pay for their passport renewal, name change and a second passport, all through cryptocurrency .

The Bitcoin payment method will be provided by Coinbase Commerce. While the Coinbase payment platform supports alternative cryptocurrencies , nothing in the press release or the product page suggests that Peninsula Visa accepts payments in digital assets other than BTC.

The company, founded in Silicon Valley in the 1970s, says it plans to expand the passport services it offers through bitcoin payment over the next twelve months.

Evan James, its director of operations, said the move was the right one, given forecasts of an increasingly digital post-COVID world. He added that Peninsula Visa was delighted to be the first such US company to accept BTC.

Protection against the votility of BTC

For many industry watchers, Bitcoin has failed somewhat as a payment network. The volatility of its price makes its acceptance of goods and services a real headache for some companies.

Peninsula Visa aims to protect itself from this situation by offering a payment window in which the exchange rate is blocked for ten minutes. According to its website, the company may provide a new exchange rate after this time, depending on the evolution of BTC prices.

A first for the United States, but not worldwide

As mentioned, Peninsula Visa offers the first US passport services for Bitcoin payments. Having said that, at least one other country has already experimented with passport payment by BTC.

As BeInCrypto.com reported in July, the government of Venezuela has also started accepting Bitcoin momentarily to pay for passports. The launch of this test was due to a new round of US sanctions that hampered the South American nation’s ability to conduct international transactions.

While censorship-resistant Bitcoin payments appear appropriate for Venezuela’s situation, the trials appear to have been short-lived. Indeed, the option of payment in BTC disappeared from the site shortly after its publication.

Price analysis for 2 November: BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, LINK, BNB, LTC, DOT, BSV, ADA

The price of Bitcoin faces a level of USD 14,000 and this causes several crypto currencies to fall below their support levels.

China’s central bank governor, Yi Gang, said the country’s digital yuan pilot projects have processed transactions worth more than $299 million without major problems. This suggests that China is well ahead of its competitors in the development and study of the central bank’s digital currency (CBDC).

However, the European Central Bank does not want to be left behind. The President of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, invited the audience to comment on whether they „would be happy to use a digital euro in the same way as they use a euro coin or a euro note“.

Another central bank that is trying to keep up is the Reserve Bank of Australia. The central bank partnered with banks, financial institutions and software companies to study the „implications of a CBDC for efficiency, risk management and innovation in wholesale financial market transactions,“ said RBA Assistant Governor Michele Bullock.

The news that several nations are contemplating the launch of a CBDC is positive in the long term, but this news may not affect short-term price action, which is dictated by market sentiment.

Let’s study the charts for the top 10 Crypto Cash currencies to find out if the sentiment is to buy the falls or sell the rallies.

BTC/USD

The failure of Bitcoin (BTC) to rise above the $13,973.50 upper resistance in recent days may have attracted the profit reserve of some short term traders and the short positions of aggressive down movers

However, the positive signal is that the bullish side is not allowing the bearish side to get away with it. The long tail of the candle suggests buying at lower levels.

If the BTC/USD rises from current levels, then the bulls will make one more attempt to push the price above the $13,973.50-$14,101.91 resistance zone. If they are successful, the uptrend could resume.

Although both moving averages are rising, the downward divergence in the relative strength index suggests that momentum has weakened. A break below the 20-day exponential moving average ($12,819) will be the first sign of strength for the bearishers.

If bearishers can capitalize on this strength and push the pair below $12,460, then a deeper correction to the 50-day simple moving average ($11,567) is possible.

ETH/USD

The bulls had pushed Ether (ETH) above the downward trend line today, but could not sustain the higher levels. This suggests that the bearish players are selling into smaller rallies. The bearishers have dragged the price back to the 20 day EMA ($386).

A breakout and a close below the 20-day EMA could drag the price back to the uptrend line. The 50-day EMA ($371) is close to this support, therefore it is likely that bullish players will defend this level aggressively.

If the ETH/USD bounces off the uptrend line, bullishers will once again attempt to push the price above the downtrend line and the $405 upper resistance. If they are successful, the possibility of a rebound will increase to $420 and then $450.

Conversely, if the bearishers sink the price below the uptrend line, a drop to $360 and then to $333 is possible.

Flat moving averages and RSI near the midpoint suggest a supply/demand balance. This suggests an equal opportunity for the upside and downside to tilt the advantage in their favour.

XRP/USD

The rebound from the $0.2295 support in XRP hit a barrier in the moving averages and the price dropped from there. Beacons are attempting to sink the altcoin below the $0.2295-$0.219712 support area.

If they succeed, the XRP/USD could start a new downtrend that could reach as high as $0.19. The 20-day declining EMA ($0.24) and the RSI below 38 suggest that the bearishers are in control.

However, if the bulls can defend the support zone and push the pair back above the moving averages, it will suggest accumulation at lower levels. In such a case the pair may remain within the range for a few more days.

BCH/USD

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fell once again from the $272 resistance and the bears are attempting to bring the price below the 20-day EMA ($258.58) and immediate support at $253.14.

If the bearish move is successful the BCH/USD could fall to the next support level at the 50 day SMA ($240.57).

Although moving averages continue to rise gradually, the RSI has broken from a symmetrical triangle and has fallen near the midpoint. This suggests that the bearish momentum is trying to return.

This bearish view will be invalidated if the pair bounces off the 20-day EMA and breaks above the $272 to $280 resistance zone.

LINK/USD

The bulls pushed Chainlink (LINK) above the 20-day EMA ($11.21) on November 1, but were unable to take advantage of this momentum. Today, the price has fallen back below the 20-day EMA and the bearishers are trying to break the support at the 50-day SMA ($10.51).

A collapse and a close below the uptrend line will be the first sign that the bears are back in action. There is less support at $9.7665, but if the bears can push the price below it, there will be a drop to $8.3817 on the cards.

This bearish view will be invalidated if the LINK/USD pair rises from current levels or bounces off the uptrend line and rises above $12. Such a move could result in a rally to $13.28.

The flat moving averages and RSI below the midpoint suggest a supply/demand balance. Therefore neither the upside nor the downside have a clear advantage.

BNB/USD

Binance Coin (BNB) has been trading near the 50 day SMA ($28) for the past three days, which suggests that the bulls are trying to defend this support. However, it is unlikely that bears will easily give up their advantage.

They sold the 20 day rally to the EMA ($29) today and are currently trying to bring the price below the support zone from $28.42 to $27.51. If they can do so, the BNB/USD could fall to $24.86.

The 20-day declining EMA and the RSI below 43 suggest that the bearish move has the advantage. However, if the bearishers fail to capitalize on the advantage, the bulls will again attempt to push the price above the 20-day EMA. If they succeed, the pair could rise as high as $32.

LTC/USD

Litecoin (LTC) fell once again from just above the $56.50 level today, suggesting that the bears are defending this resistance. Sellers will now attempt to sink the altcoin below the $52.36-$51 support.

If they can do that then the LTC/USD could fall to the 50 day SMA ($49) and if this support is also broken then the decline could extend to $46.

However, it is likely that the bulls will buy the drop to the support zone. The 20-day flat EMA ($53) and RSI just above the mid-point suggest a limited range action for a few more days.

The advantage will tilt in favour of the bulls if they can push and hold the price above $56.50.

DOT/USD

The rebound from the $3.80 support at Polkadot (DOT) was off at the 20 day EMA ($4.22). Beacons will now attempt to push the price below the immediate support at $3.80. If that happens there will be a drop to $3.5321 on the cards.

The 20-day EMA has begun to fall and the RSI is in negative territory, suggesting a slight advantage for the bearishers.

If the bearish move can get the price below $3.5321, the DOT/USD could begin a new downward trend that could reach $2.60 and then $2.0.

Contrary to this assumption, if bullishers defend the $3.80-$3.5321 support zone, the pair may remain within the $3.5321-$4.6112 range for a few more days.

BSV/USD

The failure of the bullish market to push Bitcoin SV (BSV) above the 20-day EMA ($166) in the last three days shows a lack of demand at higher levels. This has attracted sell offs from bearish market players who are currently trying to drive the price below the uptrend line.

If they are successful, the BSV/USD could fall to the $146.20-$135 support zone. A breakout from this zone could result in a panic selling that could initiate a new downtrend. The next support level for the pair is $100.

However, if bullishers defend the support area, the pair could remain within the $146.20 to $180.63 range for a few more days.

ADA/USD

The rebound from support at $0.0893 in Cardano (ADA) was down from the 20-day EMA ($0.10). This is a negative signal as it shows that the bears are selling on rallies.

If the bearish move takes the price below $0.0893, the ADA/USD could fall to critical support at $0.07555701. The 20-day declining EMA and the RSI in negative territory suggest that the path of least resistance is downward.

Contrary to this assumption, if the pair rebounds off the $0.0893 support, it will suggest that bullish momentum is building closer to this level. A break above $0.104044 will be the first sign that the bulls are attempting to return.
