Cryptocurrency Market Turbulence is Behind Us; Keep Seatbelts Fastened and Remain Calm

Pricewise
Bitcoin tests an important support level at $10,300. It’s time for the bears to return to their dens.
Cryptocurrency Market Turbulence is Behind Us; Keep Seatbelts Fastened and Remain Calm

Let's start with the good news. It’s highly probable that on Wednesday we saw the end of the localized Bitcoin correction (and therefore, the entire cryptocurrency market correction). On  Feb. 22, the underlying asset arrived at better form than the day before. Although BTC price hasn’t fully rebounded from the fall, the impulse for the reversal has been given. Total market capitalization is $470 bln, which is nearly equal to the previous day’s value. Bitcoin dominance hasn’t changed either, remaining at 39.2 percent and likely to reach 40 percent soon.

Monero- an early sign of market growth

The current situation reminds us of the end of global correction on Feb. 5-6. While the market is just coming around, the early birds of future growth are already here. Monero became one of such precursors, having grown 7.5 percent during this difficult day and occupying the 11th position by market capitalization. The rest of the market is still in the red, with an average price decrease of three to four percent among the top 10 assets.

Positive mood and a special SegWit treat

The media is maintaining a moderately positive news cycle which doesn’t have a strong impact on prices, but also doesn’t prevent the market mechanisms from doing their work. Most outlets are discussing the necessity of cryptocurrency regulation in different countries, which is self-evident. The cherry on the cake is the launch of the SegWit protocol on Bitfinex and Coinbase exchanges, which should significantly reduce commissions and increase the speed of transactions on the Bitcoin network.

BTC/USD

Yesterday, we wrote about the possibility of Bitcoin's safe correction to $10,500, but the price went a bit further down to the $10,300 zone, where the strength of the ascending channel was tested. The support held, and we continue to move in the green corridor. This was a key level, its strength confirmed by two more instruments: the mirror level, as well as the 0.382 Fibonacci retracement.

Cryptocurrency Market Turbulence is Behind Us; Keep Seatbelts Fastened and Remain Calm

Judging by the decreasing sale volumes, the bears satisfied their hunger with a 13 percent price decrease and are ready to return to their dens. The emerging figure “head and shoulders” is somewhat alarming, but in order for it to be activated the price needs to return to $10,300, breaking the ascending channel. We don’t see this scenario as the primary one but continue to keep it in mind. In this case, BTC price can test the $9,800 level, formed by the boundary of the parallel channel the 0.5 Fibonacci retracement. A more likely scenario at the moment, however, is an increase toward the $10,800-$10,900 range, some lateral movement, and the second (and final) break through the resistance formed by the boundary of the descending channel.

XRM/USD

Recently, we have noted an increased interest in anonymous currencies in the crypto community, which includes Monero. To date, the asset looks better than the market as a whole, so it’s impossible to ignore it. At the time of writing, XMR is trading around $320, which is very close to fair price for the entire period since the beginning of 2018. The price is squeezed in a rather narrow ascending channel, but feels confident there and has already made a number of attempts to break through.

Cryptocurrency Market Turbulence is Behind Us; Keep Seatbelts Fastened and Remain Calm

We also took note of the initial purchase volume which contributed to the price increasing by 10 percent in a few hours. In our experience, such volumes indicate that big investors are growing long positions, confirming that the asset’s potential. The nearest growth target is determined by two Fibonacci harmonies and is set at the level of $350-$360. Further growth may be restrained by the mirror level, so investors who already have this asset in their portfolios might consider the possibility of partial sales. In case of negative development, at the moment the level of $280 looks to be a reliable support.

BCH/USD

Due to the activation of SegWit protocol on the Bitcoin network, BCH might be facing difficult times ahead. After all, low fees and high transaction speed were Roger Ver's main trump cards. In support of this prediction, the price of Bitcoin Cash has decreased more significantly compared to other assets and amounts to $1,300 at the time of writing.

Cryptocurrency Market Turbulence is Behind Us; Keep Seatbelts Fastened and Remain Calm

In this case, support was found at the 0.386 Fibonacci retracement, but trading volumes continue to decline and soon we may see a test of the 0.5 level, which corresponds to $1,200. The maximum volume for the period since Jan. 17 was traded at this price, and it’s critical for maintaining the growth potential. Given the current situation, we recommend readers to refrain from buying Bitcoin Cash.

Today’s Biggest Crypto Winners by Name

Nakamoto tops the crypto list with $6 billion
Today’s Biggest Crypto Winners by Name

Last week, we looked at The Biggest Crypto Owners in the World by Nation. It turns out that while Turkey’s 18% of the population reportedly own cryptocurrency, it is the United States with its 8% of the population that actually has the largest number of cryptocurrency owners, around 26 million people. That, coupled together with another fact about the US having the most computational power, miners, and Bitcoin nodes, puts the United States far ahead of its crypto rivals.

Today, we bring you the Biggest Crypto Winners by Name, a fresh list that has been put together with an aggregation technique of analyzing data from various online sources. Unsurprisingly, this list is also dominated by the Americans. Almost entirely. But not quite…

 the Biggest Crypto Winners by Name

In 7th place is Charlie Shrem (USA), an interesting character to say the least, one of the biggest Bitcoin pioneers who was at one point under criminal investigation for money laundering with a subsequent two-year prison sentence. Clearly, that did not curb the man’s crypto enthusiasm, and he is now back with a hefty $450 million, according to many sources.

In 6th place is the founder of Digital Currency Group and owner of Genesis, Barry Silbert (USA), with an estimated net worth of over $500 million. In 2014, he bought 48 000 Bitcoins in an auction held by US Marshals due to the shutting down of Silk Road; as a result, he has since been able to reap tremendous financial benefits from Bitcoin’s climb to the top.

In 5th place are the famous Winklevoss Twins (USA) with their supposed combined wealth of $600 million. While Cameron and Tyler were unsuccessful in gaining control of Facebook in the well-publicized legal battle against Mark Zuckerberg, as they were unsuccessful in creating a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), they did invest religiously in Bitcoin back in 2013. Since then, the crypto exchange rate has skyrocketed and grown more than 20 times the original price making their initial investment very peachy indeed. Well, when you are twins, doubling your money may be somewhat easier.

In 4th place is Michael Novogratz (USA), a hedge fund manager and trader who began investing in cryptocurrencies back in 2013 and four years later created a $500 million crypto fund with over a quarter of that sum coming from his own pocket. Having involved himself with most major cryptocurrencies, most notably Bitcoin and Ethereum, Novogratz continued to buy and sell the various crypto units, quickly becoming a major crypto player on the market. His net worth is now estimated to be over $900 million.

In 3rd place is Tim Draper (USA), a venture capitalist and the founder of the investment firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson. Initially making his fortune through viral marketing and associated investments in such big brands as Skype, Hotmail, and Yahoo, the native Californian purchased 30 000 Bitcoins in the 2014 public auction (the very same one that gave way to Barry Silbert’s vigorous accumulation of wealth). All these well-executed efforts combined have put Draper’s wealth at over $1 billion!

In 2nd place*, we have both Ross Ulbricht (USA) and America’s very own Federal Bureau of Investigation. It must be noted that this place is entirely hypothetical: Ross Ulbricht’s funds have been confiscated. He is currently serving a double-life sentence for being the mastermind behind Silk Road and popularizing Bitcoin usage on his platform for the purposes of decentralized trade. This may sound innocent enough, but the punchline is that his infamous creation, Silk Road, traded and exchanged mainly illegal products, such as illicit substances and firearms, all in the depths of the infamous Dark Web.

In 2013, Ulbricht was arrested and 9 months later charged with money laundering, computer hacking, and drug trafficking. The FBI seized Ulbricht’s Bitcoins and passed them onto the US Marshals, who held an auction and sold them all off to those willing to pay, among them Silbert and Draper (who clearly did the wise thing by buying into them). Ulbricht’s Bitcoins which ended up in the FBI’s hands along with his other funds would have been now worth approximately $2 billion, which, in theory, puts both Ulbricht and simultaneously (though fleetingly) the FBI at our very respectable number 2.

In 1st place is the crypto household name Satoshi Nakamoto. As a matter of fact, no one knows, or at least no one admits to know, who Nakamoto really is. All that’s known is that this name is a pseudonym used by some man or woman, or possibly even a group of people, who created a pioneering mathematical code which resulted in the first ever cryptocurrency unit. The only other fact that’s known is that Nakamoto owns around 1 million Bitcoins, which roughly translates to the staggering $6 billion or more! That’s one filthy rich Japanese mystery at our number 1.

 the Biggest Crypto Winners

Interestingly, if Nakamoto were to actually sell off his Bitcoins, this would cause panic in the crypto market and consequently drive the price of Bitcoin down, which would leave Nakamoto with a lot less than Nakamoto has in assets right now. Talking about being left holding the crypto bag!

We hope you enjoyed our list. Stay tuned for more.

Bitcoin Futures Trading: Complete Guide to It
Contents

U.Today presents a complete guide to Bitcoin futures trading. Here is an article that will help you to understand the nature of those contracts and how they work with Bitcoin.

What is futures

What is futures

What are those financial contracts or derivatives? Features is a financial contract that allows to buy or to sell some basic asset within the established dates and for the previously established price, which is fixed in the agreement.

Futures are approved on the basis of standard conditions, established by the exchange. The conditions for every basic asset are established separately, which helps to sell them at a price, which is close to market quotes.

Futures are very “liquid” derivatives because of their conditions. Moreover, all the participants in the transaction are protected by the margin that the parties have to pay before the contract sets up.

Some novice traders and investors think that futures are a kind of speculative trading instruments helping them to gain more profit. However, those derivatives serve to decrease risks and to guarantee the delivery of underlying assets. It is to mention that nowadays almost all futures contracts do not require delivery of goods.

The history of futures

The futures market has a long history. Some think that those contracts appeared in Osaka (former Japanese capital). Rice was the main trading good at that time. Buyers and sellers wanted to protect themselves from price fluctuations and this was the main reason to create futures contracts.

However, some other traders underline that futures have appeared in the Netherlands during the “Tulip mania” period. The bulb cost so much that the buyer had no opportunity to buy it. Nobody could predict the price of the bulb. This was the main reason for those futures contracts to appear.

Let’s give an example. Imagine that there is a farmer who cultivates wheat. He has some spending as he needs to invest into fertilizers, seeds and his employees. In order to conduct his activities, a farmer needs to be assured that his investments will be paid off.

However, he cannot be sure in advance as the price of wheat may decrease significantly in case of high yield. To tell the truth, wheat buyers need to protect themselves from the higher prices in case of low yield.

Bitcoin futures: the main reasons for those contracts to appear

BTC futures are the result of this hype tendency. Bitcoin becomes more and more popular and Wall Street investors want to benefit from this trading instrument.

Nowadays there are futures for different types of underlying assets including weather. Everything that can be measured or calculated, may become the underlying asset for a futures contract. Bitcoin is a good “candidate” for such a mission.

However, this gives no clear understanding of why do these contracts appear? The main reason  lies not only in this hype but also in the fact that serious investors do not have trust in those exchanges that we have currently.

Yes, there are already some regulated trading places, but they are not numerous. Bitcoin is an unregulated trading instrument at all and is traded on unregulated exchanges, which sometimes are unable to deal with a high number of traders.

Another great thing about futures contracts is that their number may be significantly higher, than the number of existing bitcoins. When you deal with futures, you buy a contract and not the underlying asset. It means that you just make a bet on growth or decline of this or that asset.

How do Bitcoin futures contract work

Bitcoin futures works the same way as any other futures contract. This is an obligation to sell or to buy some bitcoins in the future (the price is established in advance as well as the dates). The margin for such a contract is about 10-15 percent. The system works like a leverage in this case and participants may get some kind of credit. They invest less and may rely on higher profits in case of success.

Here is an example of how this works. Let’s say Bitcoin price is $6,000 currently. You expect the BTC price to increase in the future and to reach $7,000. So you buy let’s say 10 contracts expecting the price to grow. The expiry date is two months.

What do you have as the result of this deal? You have bought obligations to buy ten bitcoins at the market price at the moment of the expiry date of the contract.

If the price reaches your established level, you will sell the contract and get the profit. You may hold the contract until the expiry date if you think that the price will go even higher. However, if the price fails to reach the target within those two months, you lose meaning you have to give back your margin.

To tell the truth, you can buy and sell Bitcoin contracts anytime you want. The price of those contracts may significantly vary from the underlying asset’s price. Futures contracts allow you to earn on both uptrends and downtrends.

There is one more thing to mention. Huge exchanges like CME, establish a very high price for those who want to start Bitcoin futures trading, meaning you have to pay at least five BTC to buy BTC futures on CME for example. This amount is not affordable for many retail traders and they choose brokers, which offer more loyal conditions.

The Dangers of Retiring on Bitcoin: High Risk on Important Investment

How do futures influence the Bitcoin market

There were many talks about Bitcoin’s price after futures launching. Some experts predicted its growth while the other urged the community to be cautious as the results would be unexpected. Anyway, we are now more than half a year after those contracts appeared and we can make some conclusions at this moment.

There is a common opinion that Bitcoin futures have a negative impact on the industry and cryptocurrency price as they allow traders to conduct bi-directional operations and to earn on both of them. This may lead to significant price fluctuations and downtrends.

So-called whales have large amounts of money and they can manipulate the price as they want. I would like to mention here the famous Soros trading operation against the Bank of England on Sept. 16, 1992. Soros is considered to be the man who has broken the Bank of England as he bet on GBP’s decline and earned billions of dollars.

Huge investors can be the reason of great panic on the cryptocurrency market. Cryptocurrency market’s capitalization is billions and even hundreds of billions of USD. However, daily Forex volumes are even higher. Speculative funds that penetrated the crypto market, were one of the reasons for this huge downtrend that we see in summer 2018.

Let’s see a simple example of how it works. Big money can invest millions of dollars in those contracts. When they see that market is hesitating to grow, they can “sell” BTC/USD using futures contracts and make the price decline significantly.

Another negative aspect is that you don’t need to buy Bitcoin in order to participate in those trades. This means that the number of adepts stays the same. Investors are cautious with the cryptocurrency at all. However, they are interested in speculative operations. This means that the number of those who want to benefit from Bitcoin’s price fluctuations but indifferent to this technology development will increase.

However, I also think that there are some positive moments. Bitcoin is officially adopted, which means that more participants may be involved in this network in the future. Moreover, I think that those futures contracts have already played their positive role.

Where can you buy Bitcoin futures? Those contracts are offered on CME. However,  as I have already mentioned, the entrance amount is rather high. You can also buy and sell Bitcoin futures with different specialized broker companies.

Bitcoin futures– pros and cons

There are lots of positive and negative aspect that I would like to mention here. The advantages of Bitcoin futures trading are the following:

  1. Instant trading. You lose time or money. All those who have experience in classic cryptocurrency exchanges know that it is hard sometimes to buy or sell a crypto on a desirable price especially when you need several units.

  2. You don’t need to buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. All trades are conducted in fiat money. You need to deposit them into your account and you are ready to open positions.

  3. Low funds requirements. I have told you already that you need to buy five BTC contract at CME at least in order to participate in trades. However, nowadays there are several brokers that allow to invest even lower amounts and earn more. Some brokers offer micro trading.

  4. Huge leverage offers some great opportunities for traders. You don’t need to invest much in order to get higher profits.

  5. High liquidity. This aspect allows you to sell contracts anytime you want. You don’t need to wait for a buyer to purchase it.

  6. Low commissions. Several brokers take very small fees as compared to traditional cryptocurrency exchanges. You can increase your net profits due to this fact.

  7. High-security level. When dealing with cryptocurrency exchanges, you need to be careful as those trading places are famous for their weak security measures. Yes, they are doing their best in order to increase the safety of funds, but hackers are still able to breach their security systems and take clients’ money away.

  8. You can earn when the price goes both upwards and downwards. I mean traders have an opportunity to sell and to get profits even when Bitcoin declines. This is a great feature for speculative traders.

As for the disadvantages, here they are:

  1. Futures are not suitable for long-term investments. Every contract is limited by several months’ expiry. Futures may be interesting for active speculators who conduct several short and midterm trades in order to get the maximum profit possible.

  2. You need to have enough money on your trading account. Yes, I have told you above about the leverage, but you need money to maintain your margin. When you buy several contracts, you risk to “zero” your investments.

  3. Bitcoin futures are risky. You need to calculate all your risks.

  4. Knowledge required. When trading those contracts, you need the same knowledge that is required for exchanges’ speculative trades. I would say that you even need more skills in order to succeed.

Final words

Bitcoin futures are very popular nowadays among retail traders. They allow participating in Bitcoin trading without buying the very asset. Those contracts have both advantages and disadvantages, but I think they are worth your attention.

Ripple Pushes to Become Base Currency on Binance

Ripple’s XRP has remained one of the strongest cryptocurrencies, dropping only about 5 percent during the last 7 days
Ripple Pushes to Become Base Currency on Binance

Amid the mass cryptocurrency selloff, Ripple’s XRP has remained one of the strongest cryptocurrencies, dropping only about 5 percent during the last 7 days, compared to Bitcoin’s -17% and Ethereum’s -25%.

This and other positive developments prompted Ripple and its community to push Binance to add XRP as a base currency, meaning that all the other cryptocurrencies would be paired with it. If this comes to fruition, XRP will surely get a boost in price, and it would probably solidify its current spot as the second crypto by market cap.

Charts at a Glance – XRP/USD

Ripple

After the big drop below 0.44 seen last week, XRP/USD has managed to recover most of its losses but seems to have hit a bump around 0.52 as it failed to push above that resistance. The failed break triggered a drop into 0.47, which was an important level in the past, and now the price is reacting to it once again.

The last closed 4-hour candle is showing a massive wick in its lower side, which is a sign of rejection and an indication that bullish pressure is increasing. This leads me to believe that a move into 0.50 is next. If the pair can break said level and establish it as support, we expect to see another attempt to move past 0.52 resistance.

Support zone: 0.47

Resistance zone: 0.50 followed by 0.52

Most likely scenario: move into 0.50 – 0.52

Alternative scenario: break of 0.47 and move into 0.44

Crypto Invest Summit Pulls a Huge Crowd in LA: Blockchain’s Future Looking Good

Opinions
Speakers like Steve Wozniak and Tim Draper bring over 6,000 attendees to the second Crypto Invest Summit even in the midst of a bear market
Crypto Invest Summit Pulls a Huge Crowd in LA: Blockchain’s Future Looking Good

When the first Crypto Invest Summit was announced in the spring of 2018, the organizers did not mince words, positioning the conference as the biggest crypto and Blockchain event on the West Coast. As it came to pass, even they may have been surprised by the turnout of about 4500 attendees: a laudable feat that also manifested some organizational problems. Extremely long lines for registration, a pre-party that very few were able to get into, and the lack of capacity in the main stage hall prompted some attendees to quip about the “Blockchain scaling problem as demonstrated at Crypto Invest.”

Valuable lessons were learned, and this year the organization was significantly improved, despite the number of participants rising to an astounding 6,100. If crypto conferences could be compared to colleges–some that specialize in one subject, some that offer a nice atmosphere or an incredible location, some that are known as party schools–then Crypto Invest Summit is surely a big university with a large variety of offerings, impressing with the sheer numbers. An expo floor with over 80 booths, 3 stages, 5 tracks, and thousands of attendees seem like solid evidence that Crypto Invest was able to defy the bear market.

From ICOs to sustainable investment

In May, many panels addressed ICO investment and the differences between security and utility tokens. This time, in the aftermath of a dissipating ICO hype and a crashed market, the focus was on sustainable investment in Blockchain technologies. In the context of this summit, “sustainable” meant long term investment in real products that reduce friction in the token economy and give users an easy interface with transparent incentives.

A second stage featured 5 additional tracks, or sub-conferences, that discussed specific topics including: Women of Crypto, Security Tokens, Crypto Trading, the Builder Track, and Healthcare on the Blockchain. During these tracks, participants could delve into the specifics of their particular field of interest, be it understanding crypto market movements, redesigning healthcare, listing tokens on exchanges, or bootstrapping network effects. A pitch stage in the concourse hall gave companies an opportunity to present their project to media, potential partners, and investors.

Main attractions

One of the great attractions of the Crypto Invest Summit is the lineup of prominent speakers. Venture capitalists Tim Draper and Adam Draper, always favored by crypto enthusiasts eager for investment advice, returned to the summit, having also appeared at the May event. Adam Draper predicted a significant jump in adoption, stating that in one year everyone at the conference will have 3 applications on their phone that will use Blockchain and cryptocurrency without the user having to think about it.

Tim Draper, who calls fiat “political currency”, reframed Bitcoin volatility for the audience: “1 Bitcoin is still 1 Bitcoin, it’s all the other currencies that are very volatile against it as they disappear from our earth.” He encouraged entrepreneurs to take risks with crypto and not give into the scaremongering of the incumbents of the global financial system. He also referred to institutions as “sheep” that are hesitant to enter the space, looking to other institutions for guidance. For Draper, it’s “much better to be the wolf and go in first!”

While not necessarily an expert in the space, Steve Wozniak understandably drew a big crowd. He clarified his position on Bitcoin, saying that he invested at one point for the purposes of experimenting with it, and has since sold most of his crypto. Nevertheless, he is excited to see how this technology develops and has become a co-founder of a Blockchain-focused venture capital fund EQUI Global. Wozniak reminded everyone that the human is always more important than technology since the user experience trumps any other engineering considerations. When asked what he meant by calling Bitcoin a bubble, he explained:

“The Internet was a bubble, but the thinking behind it was correct, it ended up being integral to our lives. Maybe with Blockchain it will be the same: it is a bubble, but in 10-15 years its value will show.”

The live taping of Ran Neu-Ner’s CNBC Crypto Trader show was a big hit in the spring, and this summit’s show turned out to be even more exciting. Besides featuring Steve Wozniak, the Drapers, and Dan Morehead of Pantera Capital, NeuNer created a sensation by hinting at the details of Coinbase’s upcoming IPO, referencing a source close to the company. In a conversation with the CNBC host, Adam Draper revealed that despite Coinbase’s $8 billion valuation, he believes that the company is still undervalued and will be “the largest company on the planet.”

Save the date

While 2019 may become the year of the STO, most speakers seemed to agree that the bear market is the best time to get work done, i.e. start projects, build frameworks, and gather communities. The investors echoed this sentiment, encouraging entrepreneurs to focus on completing products that provide valuable solutions and reduce friction in Blockchain applications.

The Summit’s after-party
The Summit’s after-party

At the conference, it was clear that the crypto community is coming to a realization: if we are to see widespread crypto and Blockchain adoption, the technology must be running invisibly in the background, leaving an easy and engaging experience for the user. When Crypto Invest Summit returns in April 2019, there will be a chance to evaluate how well those goals are being accomplished. Judging by the first two events, the conference will continue to attract crowds of crypto experts, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts no matter what the industry holds in store for us in the meantime.
