Dogecoin Price Bucks Bearish Pressure on its Fifth Birthday

Published

on

Today may prove to be a very interesting day for Dogecoin. Not just because the “meme currency of the internet” celebrates its five-year anniversary, but also because it seems largely unfazed by the current crypto market onslaught. That in itself a very bullish signal in its own right, although it remains to be seen if this situation will remain in place for much longer.

Dogecoin Price Benefits From Bitcoin Gains

It is always interesting to see how people respond to Dogecoin. Although this project was never designed to be taken seriously first and foremost, it has become a very popular and successful project in its own right. In fact, it has become more successful than most people expected five years ago. This further shows how far Dogecoin has come in the past few years. As such, it cannot be overlooked under any circumstance.

Over the past 24 hours, there have been some interesting Dogecoin price changes. Although the popular altcoin lost 1.5% in USD value – which is only normal when looking at Bitcoin – it gained 2.1% in BTC value. Those gains aren’t sufficient to keep the price in the green where its USD value is concerned, but it is still interesting to keep an eye on moving forward. As such, it seems evident Dogecoin should be able to maintain its value of $0.002 in the coming days, although this may be a big struggle regardless.

On social media, there are always interesting opinions pertaining to Dogecoin. Melea-trust is one of those individuals who want to see all major exchange trade Dogecoin, which is not happening anytime soon. As such,  one has to wonder why Binance isn’t actively trading Dogecoin at this time. It is very unusual, especially when considering how Binance wants to remain the biggest altcoin trading platform on the market.

Today is all about the fifth anniversary of Dogecoin. The infamous currency has survived a few rough years, especially when considering how there has been no innovative development for quite some time now. Instead, it succeeded on its own without jumping on the hype bandwagon, and focused on community-driven efforts first and foremost. That in itself is the only real route to success, and a lesson plenty of altcoins need to pick up on accordingly.

From a technical point of view, there is still a genuine chance the Dogecoin price will rise over the coming days and weeks. A very bullish outlook is shared by Annelin Ytrade, who is confident one DOGE will be worth $0.0044 soon. A target that seems rather unlikely to hit, although Dogecoin’s current price stability further confirms something interesting is bound to happen sooner or later.

Although all of the current market indicators seem to indicate the Dogecoin price will be going down soon, its BTC value helps offset some USD losses in the process. Whether or not that situation can remain in place for much longer, is a different matter altogether. For now, Dogecoin remains one of the more impressive markets to watch, although it remains to be seen what the future will hold exactly.

Crypto market colored in red; Bitcoin languishes under $3,400

Published

on

  • Altcoins resumed the downside after a short-lived recovery.
  • Bitcoin returned to $3,300 after an attempt to break above $3,600.

The cryptocurrency market was short-lived. Once again. Bitcoin and other major altcoins resumed the downside movement on Monday with the total capitalization of digital assets in circulation dropped below $110B, killing hopes to witness good bullish trend into the year-end. Prices bumped into resistance levels unable to instigate buying interest amid pessimistic sentiments that gripped the market.

Stephen Innes from Oanda is among those who prefer to hold off on calling the bottom on the cryptocurrency market.  He believes that we still do not have a convincing use case for Bitcoin and the absence of good non-speculative reasons to buy it makes the situation worse.

“Bitcoins have gone well beyond the ridiculousness of tulip bulb mania, It’s has been a disastrous year for cryptos, and by all indication, the current bear market could go from bad to worse with no fundamental or underlying reasons to buy BTC even more so when the only support offered up is a squiggly line on an analyst chart,” he commented.

Bitcoin has lost nearly 4 % since this time on Monday to trade at $3,380 at the time of writing. The first digital coin smashed both $3,500 and $3,400 handles after a failed attempt to settle above $3,600. Lack of buying interest may increase the short-term pressure on BTC that has already lost about 84% from its all-time high of $19,000.

Ethereum, the third largest digital asset, stays under critical $100. ETH/USD is changing hands at $90.00, having lost 3.7% in the recent 24 hours. The coin’s market value is dropped at $9.4B, while the average trading volumes have settled at $1.7B, down from $2.5B at the end of the previous week. Ethereum network is getting ready for a pivotal Constantinopole update scheduled for January 2019, which puts the coin under additional pressure.

Ripple’s XRP is trading marginally above $0.30 within the strong bearish trend. The coin is 3% lower on a day-on-day basis and mostly unchanged since the beginning of Tuesday. The second largest coin with market value $12.3B is dominated by bearish sentiments of the cryptocurrency market. Irresponsive to fundamental news, the coin is likely to stay volatile.

All major altcoins out of top-20 are in red, losing from 1% to 10% as bears are back at the driving wheel.

Nouriel Roubini and Anthony Pompliano’s “Buffet Bet 2.0” feud rages in the Twitter-verse

Published

on

Anthony Pompliano, a Bitcoin enthusiast and the founder of Morgan Creek digital asset recently set off a bet, now being called as the Buffet Bet 2.0, putting $1 million at stake. The bet by Pompliano is a competition between the performance of S&P 500 index and cryptocurrencies as a whole.

Roubini being himself had an opinion on this bet and bad-mouthed Pompliano and his bet, which led Pompliano to invite him to go against the bet. The feud continued as Roubini took to his Twitter saying that Pomp is “changing goal posts” and “talking books all day”.

To Roubini’s Tweet, Pompliano replied:“Talk is cheap. You taking the bet or going to Monday morning quarterback this one?

🙂
If you want to check out the index, you can see it here digitalassetindexfund.com”

On December 10, Roubini erupted the feud again when he Tweeted:“You take bets only when there is no counter-party risk, ie when the side losing the bet is still there to pay it. The loser pompous @APompliano who lost 80% for investors in his shitcoin fund is only seeking attention with his bet. His fund will be BUST/GONE well before 10 years”

Pompliano replied to him saying that Roubini was the candidate for the worst call of the decade.

Mark W. Yusko, the co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital also replied to Roubini’s above-mentioned thread saying that there was zero counter-party risk in the “Buffet Bet”.

A Twitter user Bitvillain replied to the same thread:“Sounds like an easy win for you Nouriel. I think there are plenty of good charities that you could donate your winnings to. Take the bet! Surely the odds of crypto beating the S&P 500 over 10 years is close to zero. What could possibly go wrong?”

Meanwhile, on the other side of Twitter-verse, an S&P believer, Jim O’Shaughnessy, Chairman & Chief Investment Officer, OSAM, bet against the cryptocurrencies in his tweet saying that he was up for the bet.

O’Shaughnessy in subsequent tweets said that the bet was not going to happen. He tweeted:“[email protected] won’t do it, @patrick_oshag (my son, the least-millennial millennial I have ever met) is tired of talking about crypto, so, no bet from us. Ah well…
