Bitcoin Spin-Offs Caught in a Bull-Bear Tug Of War Bitcoin's recently forked spin-offs bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin gold (BCG) are caught up in a tug of war between the bulls and bears right now. However, price analysis suggests that both struggles might soon be resolved one way or another. As of writing, bitcoin cash is at $1,522.60. As per CoinMarketCap, the cryptocurrency has depreciated by 5.9 percent in the last 24 hours. BCH peeped above $1,600 levels yesterday, possibly due to comments from CBOE president Chris Concannon that bitcoin cash could get its own derivatives market soon. However, a general pullback across the cryptocurrency market seems to have pushed BCH back below $1,500 levels. Bitcoin cash The above chart...

Please share if you find this article interesting. Putin On The Naughty List? Russian Santa to Issue Cryptocurrency Putin may be in a touch of trouble this Christmas, with the announcement that Ded Moroz (the Russian version of Santa Claus) is considering issuing his own cryptocurrency. The Russian government's position on cryptocurrencies is famously dubious, and if the Russian Santa is on board, there may be a collision coming. On his tour around Russian cities visiting the underprivileged and children’s hospitals, the character (who resides at a theme park in Velikiy Ustyug), Ded Moroz made it clear that he likes to keep up with the times. In an interview he said: "I live for a very long time and do not remember how old I am, but I want to keep up with the times. Now the worl

Please share if you find this article interesting. Bitcoin RIP: Cryptocurrency ‘Dies’ 200th Time, Just As Price Hits $11k Bitcoin is paradoxically becoming more valuable the more it dies, with over 200 ‘obituaries’ now public. The bizarre status quo comes from information portal 99Bitcoins, which also tracks press articles declaring Bitcoin will shortly disappear. On Dec. 1, as Bitcoin prices hovered at just over $10,000, the site’s ‘Bitcoin obituary stats’ formally recorded the 200th Bitcoin death. The omen came courtesy of Business Insider, which produced an article claiming a “fatal flaw” meant no cryptocurrency could ever become “real” currency. “A currency has to be a widely used medium of exchange. Cryptocurrencies are never going to achieve that. Period,” UBS Bank’s Wealth

News BTC DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 5, 2017

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. News BTC DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 5, 2017 [embedded content] DASH/USD DASH continues to be choppy, hanging about the $750 region. At this point, it looks to me as if there is major support below at about $670, but we may not even get there. I do believe that a pullback is probably healthy, so I think that buying the dips makes sense. Watch the stochastic oscillator, if we get an oversold crossover, that could be further confirmation that we are ready to rally yet again. LTC/USD Litecoin has found a bit of support near the $95 level, and I think currently we are trying to figure out whether the $100 barrier is something that we can overcome easily. We are getting ready to cross over in the stochastic oscillator over...

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. News BTC Ethereum Analysis December 5, 2017 [embedded content] ETH/USD Ethereum has been a bit negative during the Monday trading session, but it appears that the $450 level should offer a bit of psychological support, extending down to at least the $420 level. Because of this, it’s likely that we will find a “buy on the dips” mentality, and therefore I am watching the stochastic oscillator underneath for a cross near the 20 level. ETH/BTC Ethereum continues to be a bit oversold against Bitcoin, but quite frankly neither currency looks overly bullish in the short term. If I had the place a trade, it would almost certainly be to the upside, as we are approaching significant support. However, I think that any upside momentum at

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. News BTC Bitcoin Analysis December 5, 2017 [embedded content] News BTC Bitcoin Analysis December 5 BTC/USD Bitcoin has been relatively volatile over the last couple of sessions, but continues to grind to the upside. We currently find ourselves near the $11,000 level, and it looks as if the 20 SMA is trying to offer support. I believe there is obvious support underneath at the $10,000 level, and therefore there should be quite a bit of buyers in that area. I think that we probably need to pull back a little bit, but that should end up being a buying opportunity. BTC/JPY Bitcoin has pulled back slightly against the Japanese yen early on Monday, but we are still very much in an uptrend, and I believe that the buyers are coming ...
