Analyst points to where the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP goes

Published

on

Bitcoin prices are hovering within a crucial demand zone that needs to hold for the rally to continue.

This is the view of FXStreet analyst Akash Girimath who also points out that a resurgence of buying pressure pushing the BTC to produce a daily close above will confirm a resumption of an uptrend.

Therefore, according to him, such a move will also cause Etheruem and Ripple to increase as well.

Thus, the analyst points out that the price of Bitcoin entered the demand zone of $63,805 to $67,162 after establishing a new high of $68,778 on 9 November.

“This drop was caused by investors posting profits and is expected to stabilize and reverse soon,” he said.

So for him, uA daily close above $67,162 will confirm the start of a new uptrend and push the BTC to the 161.8% Fibonacci extension level at $77,908.

Thus, he points out that in a highly bullish and long-term scenario, the BTC will likely establish a $100,000 high or the Fibonacci based 261.8% trend.

“On the other hand, if the Bitcoin price doesn’t close above $67,162, but produces a daily close below $63,805, it would indicate that buyers have disappeared. In this scenario, the BTC would revise the immediate support level at $65,000 or the $60,000 barrier in dire cases where buyers may return,” he said.

Ethereum and XRP

So, with respect to Ethereum, the analyst points out that the price of ETH is currently following Bitcoin’s footsteps.

So, he says, a potential increase in buying pressure will push ETH to the psychological hurdle of $5,000.

“In an optimistic scenario, this increase could extend to US$ 6,387, coinciding with the Fibonacci extension level of 161.8%”, he points out.

As for the price of XRP, the analyst points out that it is different from Bitcoin or Ethereum, as it faces an area of ​​resistance ranging from $1.31 to $1.41.

So, according to him, this supply zone is crucial and impedes XRP’s growth.

“Although the XRP price started its rally on Nov. 3, when it exited a symmetrical triangle, it needs to produce a daily close above $1.41 to confirm a move to $1.97 or about $2 ”, points out.

Thus, while the conservative target for the technical formation predicts $2 as likely, an increase in buying pressure could lead to an overshoot, setting the 261.8% Fibonacci extension level at $2.32.

“In this situation, the Ripple price could extend the rally and run at an all-time high, resting at around $3.31,” he concludes.

Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF), in a recent interview with Kitco, praised Solana for its potential to expand to millions of transactions per second. According to the FTX CEO, this makes Solana a critical component of cryptocurrency acceptance and the next Bitcoin.

The scalability of Solana could aid its evolution into a new Ethereum or Bitcoin.

Bitcoin skeptic Saule Omarova to be rejected as Biden’s nominee for OCC in win for crypto

Published

on

  • Saule Omarova was nominated to head OCC and it looked bleak for the future of cryptocurrencies as she is an outspoken critic of Bitcoin.
  • New reports reveal that some Democratic senators in U.S Congress will reject her, and with all Republicans united against her, she will most likely not assume office.

Saule Omarova, a Bitcoin critic who was nominated for one of the most important financial regulatory jobs in the U.S, is looking unlikely to go through Senate confirmation. According to new reports, some Democratic Senators have rejected the Biden pick, particularly opposing her hardline stance against big banks. With Republican Senators all against her, she looks unlikely to be the next Comptroller of the Currency.

Omarova was nominated by the White House in September to take over from the Acting OCC, Michael Hsu. As CNF reported at the time, the cryptocurrency community joined the banking fraternity to ask questions of what would be of her reign. Omarova is an outspoken critic of the big banks, having consistently criticized government bailouts. She has also suggested that the Federal Reserve should be allowed to serve Americans, effectively wiping out the commercial banks.

For cryptocurrencies, the future looked just as bleak. She has previously stated that she believes they “benefit mainly the dysfunctional financial system we already have.”

In her Senate grilling two weeks ago, she held on to her anti-Bitcoin views. Responding to crypto-friendly Senator Cynthia Lummis‘ question on whether Bitcoin threatens national security, she stated:

I’m not an expert on Bitcoin but I’d worry if all our financial transactions were up to some blockchain system where various actors who might actually be located in other countries, not particularly friendly to us, control the functioning of the system.

Omarova to be rejected

According to reports in Washington, Omarova is set to be rejected in Senate. Already, virtually all Republican senators have said they will reject her. Many of them have even attacked her on personal terms, as well as her ‘socialist-leaning’ beliefs.

Axios reports that five Democratic Senators have joined the anti-Omarova bandwagon as well. The five told Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, who heads the Senate Banking Committee of their dissent. If they vote against her, the Kazakhstan-born academic will stand virtually no chance as the house is almost divided in half between Republicans and Democrats.

However, despite the opposition, the White House continues to back her publicly. A White House official told Axios:

The White House continues to strongly support her historic nomination. Saule Omarova is eminently qualified for this position. She has been treated unfairly since her nomination with unacceptable red-baiting from Republicans like it’s the McCarthy era.
