Published

There is a close link between the movement of Bitcoin and Ripple. Both of them are strong coins with a dedicated community of users. At present, they are facing some negative sentiments, but this will wash off soon.

BTC Vs. XRP Price Analysis:

Both Bitcoin and Ripple started on a declining note. In the first hours of the day, Bitcoin price has declined by 6.15% and fell to the level of 10,125.86 USD. Similarly, Ripple declined by 4.15% and landed at $0.2628. After that, the declining trend has slowed a bit, and coins kept fluctuating up and down in the range of around 2%. However, during the early minutes of the second half, on the other day, came yet another dip where BTC price declined by 2.21% and Ethereum by 0.96%.

BTC - XRP Price Prediction

After the second intraday breakdown, the digital coins have shown some strengthening for the next couple of hours. In that period, BTC hiked by 1.75% and XRP by 1.5%. The next plunge that came in around midnight dragged Bitcoin price by 2.91% and took it below $10k mark again. Similarly, XRP declined by 2.02% and landed at the level of 0.26 USD. Lately, the cryptos have been hovering at those levels and showed some bounce back, which helped then to move toward their current position.

BTC vs XRP Prediction & Conclusion:

Making any prediction in this swinging market is a rigorous task. However, for now, Ripple faces immediate resistance at $0.274454 and support at $0.259335. For Bitcoin, the immediate resistance is at 10,636.95 USD and support level at $9,800.93.

The Ripple team has done a recent assessment of the blockchain and assured that they will work toward the narrowing of the skill gap. Further, they added that in order to address the issue, the team would seek the help of experts including academia, governments, and private organizations.

Binance Blocking 13 States From New US-Based Crypto Exchange

Published

on

Binance says 13 states will be blocked from its new crypto exchange Binance.US.

The exchange, which is set to accept initial registrations on Wednesday, will prohibit customers in the following states as it works to ensure its platform is compliant across the US.

Blocked states

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Connecticut
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • Texas
  • Vermont
  • Washington

Binance.US CEO Catherine Cooley says the exchange will keep pressing to ensure the platform is available to all US citizens.

“Although it is upsetting that we cannot offer Binance.US in the states where I grew up and earned my education at this time, please rest assured that this is just the beginning, and it is our mission to bring access to those of you in these states many of us call home…

U.S. customers will be able to buy listed coins with USD through ACH or wire transfer methods. We will be exploring other options based on the demand of our users.”

The platform will debut with six supported cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, and Tether.

Users who have coins that are not available for trading on the platform can still store the assets on Binance.US.

“All coins/tokens not yet listed on Binance.US can still be stored with other custodians in the custody method of your choice (ex. hot wallet, cold storage, etc.) and traded on other venues that have live order books in those pairs. Over the coming weeks, we will be adding coins that satisfy our Digital Asset Risk Assessment Framework.”

According to Cooley, the platform plans to steadily add more coins after its initial launch.

Bitcoin, HTC collaborate on cryptocurrency smartphone

Published

on

Bitcoin.com is going mobile.

The cryptocurrency inventor has announced that it is working with telecommunications manufacturer HTC on developing crypto technologies, starting with its smartphones.

In a press release, Bitcoin.com said it is beginning a long-term partnership with HTC, which has developed a smartphone with a pre-loaded Bitcoin Cash (BCH) support app.

People who buy an EXODUS 1 from HTC won’t have to download a BCH wallet app onto their phones. For people who already have an EXODUS 1, they just have to update the software on their phone, the release said.

“The EXODUS vision has always aligned itself towards public blockchains and its fundamental transformative nature of the future of money and the Internet,” Phil Chen, Decentralized Chief Officer at HTC said in a statement.

“The Zion Vault is happy to support BCHnatively in hardware for security to go hand in hand with the BCH blockchain as an alternative to dominant payment rails and platforms,” Chen added.

However, the automatically downloaded Bitcoin app isn’t the only way the two companies are partnering.

They also plan to offer special discounts for buying phones using Bitcoin Cash as well as selling EXODUS phones on Bitcoin’s store.

“There are so many synergies between Bitcoin.com and HTC. We are very excited to be on this incredible journey together,” Bitcoin.com’s CEO Stefan Rust said in the release.

Ethereum Uppercuts Bitcoin

Published

on

Ethereum has been an outperformer this week in the crypto space, after breaking out of a bullish wedge. Week to date, Ethereum (ETH) has rallied over 17 whilst a tailgating Ripple (XRP) is hot on its heels, both of which have left Bitcoin (BTC) for dust which traders -0.3% lower. Yesterday it was announced that Aztec, a company focussed on privacy-centric tools, has begun a 30-day ignition ceremony to roll out its workaround for “private transactions” on ETH, which appears to have helped it break above 203.95 resistance.

We can see on the daily chart that ETH produced a slight bullish divergence with RSI whilst its bullish wedge took shape. After a lacklustre breakout, it appeared the pattern was on the brink of failure, yet prices held above the 164.12 low before building up bullish momentum ahead of the trend’s acceleration. RSI has not reached overbought territory on the daily chart. And besides, a momentum high does not always mean a price high (as we need to allow for a divergence to form).

With the bullish wedge now in play, bulls could target the $240 high at the base of the wedge.

  • A break above 217.33 assumes a run for the 240 high, although traders could look to buy dips above 203.95 support.
  • RSI is currently overbought and a bearish pinbar has appeared to warn of near-term exhaustion. However, given the strength of daily RSI, prices might consolidate or provide a relatively shallow retracement before breaking higher.
  • Ultimately, the four-hour trend remains bullish above 188.83, so bulls could look for a higher low to materialise before considering buying any dips.
