Please share if you find this article interesting. Bitcoin No Longer Top Dog Because Of How It Is Defined The total market cap of the cryptocurrency market reached a new milestone, crossing the $700 bln mark. However, the driving force that is Bitcoin has slumped to all-time lows in terms of its market dominance. For so long Bitcoin has held more than just the lion's share of the crypto market dominance, but currently, while many will be calling it altcoin season with Bitcoin’s dominance down to 34 percent, it may be that Bitcoin has made itself less important. At its genesis, Bitcoin was heralded as the new revolution of currency with its low fees and instant transfers, but that is long gone, and with it too perhaps Bitcoin’s relevance in the global crypto market.

DASH and Litecoin Analysis January 5, 2018

DASH and Litecoin Analysis January 5, 2018

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. DASH and Litecoin Analysis January 5, 2018 DASH/USD DASH continues to be a bit volatile, but we are underneath the downtrend line that makes the top of the downtrend in channel. If we can break above the $1200 level, the market could continue to go higher, perhaps reaching towards the $1400 level. If we break down below the $1000 level, then I think we go down to the $850 level. LTC/USD Litecoin fell a bit during the trading session on Thursday, but I think there is plenty support below at the $200 level to keep this market afloat. We may drift down towards that area, but right now I think the volume simply isn’t there, meaning that we are going to go back and forth. [embedded content] Thanks for watching, I’ll be back tomorrow

Ethereum Analysis January 5, 2018

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. Ethereum Analysis January 5, 2018 ETH/USD Ethereum continues to grind higher, as it looks likely to reach towards the $1000 level over the next several days. Because of this, I believe that the markets will continue to find buyers on dips, as the large, round, psychologically significant number is far too tempting of a target. I believe that it is not until we break down below the $800 level that you should worry about the uptrend. ETH/BTC Ethereum rallied against Bitcoin as well, and it looks as if the markets are starting to favor Ethereum overall. The market looks likely to go looking towards the 0.07 handle above, and I think dips continue to be supported at the 0.06 level below. [embedded content] Thanks for watching, I’l

Bitcoin Analysis January 5, 2018

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. Bitcoin Analysis January 5, 2018 BTC/USD Bitcoin drifted a bit lower during the trading session on Thursday, as traders continue to bounce around the head of the nonfarm payroll number coming out of the United States. This will have a drastic effect on the US dollar, and by extension Bitcoin. It looks currently as if we are consolidating still, with the $13,000 level being the “floor”, and the $16,000 level being the ceiling. Because of this, back and forth range bound trading strategies seem to be the best way to deal with Bitcoin currently. BTC/JPY Bitcoin fell a little bit against the Japanese yen after initially rallying, but in the Japanese market, it looks as if Bitcoin is trying to make a move to the top of the consolid

Ripple XRP: The influence of Exchanges

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. Ripple XRP: The influence of Exchanges On December 29th Ripple soared by more than 55% to reach an all time high of $2.23 implying a market cap of more than $86 billion which was well-over Ethereum’s $73 billion at the time. Coverage seems to be infiltrating mainstream media now, with Ripple even getting a mention on the BBC. So what has caused this market reaction? I think the market is taking notice of Ripple’s speed, reliability and scalability — which has strengthened the demand for Ripple where it’s listed. Ripple has gone from being listed on six exchanges earlier this year to more than 50 worldwide. At a fundamental level, growing adoption of Ripple seems to have driven its rise in value. Over the weekend, three of Japan’s

Down But Not Out: Bitcoin Holds Onto Bullish Territory

BITCOIN, CURRENT EVENTS, EDUCATION, FINANCE
Please share if you find this article interesting. Down But Not Out: Bitcoin Holds Onto Bullish Territory Bitcoin has come under pressure today amid sharp gains in alternative currencies, but the charts are showing no signs of panic. Having clocked a high of $15,394.99 at 02:14 UTC today, CoinDesk's Bitcoin Price Index fell to an intraday low of $14,225.17 at 09:14 UTC. At press time, bitcoin was trading at $14,500 levels. Quite clearly, the 2 percent depreciation in the value shown by data source CoinMarketCap is largely due to the decline seen between 02:14 UTC and 09:14 UTC. Meanwhile, cheaper alternative currencies are strongly bid. For instance, Ripple's XRP token has set a new all-time high of $3, having appreciated by a hefty 31.63 percent in the last 24 hours.
