Published

on

  • Cardano price expected to breakout to the $0.4750 mark.
  • The closest support level lies at $0.4250.
  • ADA faces resistance in crossing above the $0.4500 mark.

Cardano price action has broken above the consolidating channel it has traded in since mid-January. The price faced strong resistance at the $0.3750 and the $0.4000 levels. However, the recent bull rally has broken above both resistances as the price climbed to the $0.4500 mark.

While Bitcoin continues to trade inside its consolidating range, Ethereum has once again risen above the $1,400 mark. On the other hand, Cardano price has broken out of its previous trend, initiating a bull rally towards the $0.5000 mark. The price currently observes a 6.14 percent increase from the day’s opening price.

The broader cryptocurrency market has observed a bullish change across the last 24 hours, with most major cryptocurrencies recording positive price movement across the period. These include Bitcoin and Ethereum that record a 6.4 percent and a 7.97 percent increase, respectively.

Technical indicators

Cardano price prediction: ADA to climb to the $0.500 resistance level 1

Across the technical indicators, the MACD is highly bullish and shows an increasing bullish momentum, as suggested by the increasing size of the histograms. The two EMAs continue ascending, with the 12-EMA significantly higher than the 26-EMA.

The RSI shows an overbought asset as the indicator breaks out of the neutral zone. Currently, the indicator is trading above 80.00, issuing a sell signal suggesting a correction. However, the signal is not very strong as the indicator remains near the 80.00 mark.

The Bollinger bands were squeezed until yesterday before the price broke above the $0.3750 mark. Since then, the indicator has expanded significantly and continues to expand. Currently, the price is trading above the upper limit of the indicator suggesting further expansion.

Overall, the four-hour technical analysis issues a buy signal of considerable strength as 17 of the 26 major technical indicators suggest a bullish price movement in the short term. On the other hand, only one indicator suggests a downwards movement while the remaining eight indicators remain neutral, indicating no support towards either side.

The 24-hour technical analysis further accentuates this sentiment, with 17 indicators favoring an upwards movement against zero indicators suggesting a bearish price action. The remaining nine indicators are neutral, and the analysis issues a strong buy signal overall.

What to expect from Cardano price?

Cardano price prediction: ADA to climb to the $0.500 resistance level 2

Traders should expect Cardano price to observe resistance at the $0.4500 level. However, the supportive technical indicators and the rising trade volume suggests a bullish breakout from the level. As such, traders can expect ADA to rise to the $0.4750 mark up to the $0.5000 mark.

Conversely, if Cardano price is rejected from the resistance level, traders can expect ADA to retrace to the $0.4000 mark before finding strong support. While the price may fall back to the previous consolidating channel, it is unlikely given the market sentiment and the trade volume.

Binance proposes a real-time token burning mechanism to boost BNB value

Published

on

  • Binance has proposed the BEP-95 aimed to burn a percentage of transaction fees as a deflationary measure.
  • BEP-95 will occur alongside the quarterly token burn and well after the 100 million token supply is achieved.

Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is taking further steps to incorporate an additional deflationary mechanism to increase token valuation. As announced today, Binance (BNB) is introducing a new Binance Evolution Protocol (BEP) known as BEP-95. The BEP stands out from the network’s occasional token burns since it introduced a real-time burning mechanism.

According to Binance, a fixed portion of gas fees collected by validators in each block will be sent to the burn address. The ratio initially set at 10 percent, is adjustable according to changes proposed by the Binance community. BSC validators get to vote on community proposals, where voting power is based on staked BNB.

For a proposal to be reviewed by the validators, it has to receive a minimum deposit of 2,000 BNB (mainnet). All BNB is returned to holders after the finalization of the voting process. A proposal that wins is that which gathers 50 percent of the total voting power on the mainnet. Binance notes that voted-upon parameters are implemented immediately.

Details of Binance BEP-95 token burning mechanism

BEP-95 became relevant as it speeds up the BNB token burn, and makes the network increasingly decentralized. The BNB supply cap is about 168 million tokens and Binance intends to burn until 100 million tokens remain in circulation. This will take about 5-8 years to complete, according to Binance. The network’s most recent quarterly burn wiped out over 1 million tokens, worth about $639 million, from circulation.

However, the latest update from its blog now says the BEP-95 burn “will continue functioning” even after the above target is attained. With the burn, Binance expects the intrinsic value of the BNB token to increase in tandem with demand. The network notes that validators and delegators may receive fewer tokens from staking, but the “fiat-denominated value of their rewards may increase.” Moreover, BNB has multiple use cases that benefit all holders of the token.

Currently, BEP-95 is in the draft stage and the network is yet to give a specific date for its implementation.

Several blockchains use the crypto-burning mechanism to create token scarcity and a subsequent increase in token value. Ethereum, for instance, uses the EIP-1559 for this purpose.

BNB price action

BNB, the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, was trading at $494 at press time, according to our data. The token has gained 0.8 percent in the day, and 4.8 percent week-over-week. Similar to other digital assets, BNB has rallied fueled by the Bitcoin-led gains. Crypto investor and YouTuber Lark Davis expects “good things” for the BNB price following its launch of a $1B growth fund.

New proposal aims to raise Binance Coin value by burning BSC fees

Published

on

Amid the ongoing rally of Binance’s native token, Binance Coin (BNB), the developers of Binance Smart Chain (BSC) have proposed more measures to maintain the token’s deflationary model and improve its intrinsic value.

According to a new Binance Evolution Protocol, BEP-95, BSC developers are considering introducing a real-time burning mechanism for a portion of gas fees to reduce BNB supply and drive BNB value higher by increasing the demand. According to the BEP, BNB holders will decide how to dispatch the BSC gas reward.

Releasing the proposal on Friday, BSC developers noted that the new BEP might decrease the total amount of BNB that validators and delegators obtain from staking. The burning mechanism will be enabled by introducing governable parameters for two system smart contracts for collecting gas fees.

Created by Binance in 2017, BNB is a deflationary token by design, meaning that Binance burns a percentage of the BNB supply every three months to maintain the token’s value. Binance will stop burning BNB once 50% of the initial supply has been burnt and only 100,000,000 BNB remain.

The latest BNB token burn took place last Monday, with Binance burning 1,335,888 BNB ($640 million) in its 17th quarterly burn.

The proposal comes amid BNB seeing a major rally recently, with the token breaking above $500 on Wednesday. At the time of writing, BNB is the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization after Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH). The token is trading at $495, up around 44% over the past 30 days. BNB’s all-time high was recorded in May 2021, with the token surging to as high as $686, according to CoinGecko.

The latest BIP, which occurred in August, is similar to a new transaction fee mechanism implemented for Ethereum’s London upgrade. According to Etherchain, the current average ETH burn rate amounts to 3.76 ETH or $15,448 per minute.

BinanceUS Blamed the 87% Bitcoin Flash Crash on Algorithm Bug

Published

on

A day after the massive 87% flash crash on its trading platform, Binance US has blamed it on an algorithm bug.

The US branch of the leading cryptocurrency exchange explained that yesterday’s severe flash crash that saw BTC’s price dumping from $65,000 to $8,700 in mere seconds was because of a bug in the trading algorithm.

  • CryptoPotato reported yesterday when the price of bitcoin nosedived from its near all-time high level to below $10,000 on Binance US.
  • Other trading platforms, such as Kraken and FTX, also saw flash crashes as BTC dropped more on those two exchanges than it did in reality.
  • Although these flash crash events do occur from time to time, an 87% drop (the one on Binance US) is something that caught the attention of the public.
  • The company decided to explain what happened in a letter shared with Bloomberg. It reads that the problem came from an algorithm bug.
  • “One of our institutional traders indicated to us that they had a bug in their trading algorithm, which appears to have caused the sell-off. We are continuing to look into the event but understand from the trader that they have now fixed their bug and that the issue appears to have been resolved.”
  • A flash crash is an event in which the price of the underlying asset falls hard before it immediately recovers to its previous levels.
  • It could be particularly damaging to traders using leverage as it can liquidate their positions in an instant.
  • Another recent one in early October saw BTC dropping by several thousand dollars once more on Bitstamp following a massive sell order of over 210 bitcoins.
