The crypto market neglected yesterday, May 8, Binance hack, as the today the price of BTC finally reached $6,000. One of the possible reason for today’s run refers to Facebook, which has canceled its previous crypto ad ban.

Applying the technical patterns to our graph, MACD shows the bullish wave since yesterday. However, as it usually happens, traders should expect a little correction before moving higher.

In this case, a rollback to the support level may arise, and then buyers will push BTC up to $6,100 until the end of the week.

The price of BTC is trading at $6,052 at the time of writing.

ETH/USD

The top altcoin is stagnating, as its price does not affect on the Bitcoin bull run. Currently, it is the only asset, whose rate has dropped by around 0.1% over the last 24 hours.

ETH/USD chart by TradingView

Analyzing Ethereum from the technical point of view, nothing crucial has happened since yesterday. The Fibonacci retracement is located below the red zone (23.6%) signing that bears are run out of steam.

The potential growth may happen to $174.10 (50%); however, such a scenario should be backed by the increasing trading volume which has slightly reduced over the last few days.

XRP/USD

At the moment of writing our yesterday Ripple forecast is not coming true, as XRP has moved again below $0.30. Traders show no interest in trading XRP, as its trading volume has reduced by around $300 million since the start of May.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

On the hourly chart, the RSI indicator does not show the oversold of the crypto, even though the asset is located in the ascending channel for quite a long time. It looks that April had no effect at all on XRP’s rate, and bounced back to the positions of March. A possible short-term scenario is a drop to $0.2960, due to the lack of buyers and flowing funds into BTC and other more volatile coins.

The price of XRP is trading at $0.2983 at the time of writing.

The Ripple-invested Mexican Bitso exchange is a partner of Ripple and MoneyGram in the Mexican On-Demand Liquidity corridor launched this year. Bitso is the largest Mexican exchange and its participation in the Ripple and MoneyGram’s project has been successful.

The Liquidity Index for XRP in Mexico adds another million

The Liquidity Index for the XRP/MXN pair is growing fast, leaving behind one all-time high after another.

Today, on December 14, this index has taken a new level and got over the 9-mln mark with the daily progress being 92 percent.

The highest liquidity mark achieved previously was slightly under 8,568,000.

Another active ODL corridor leads to the Philippines through the local Coin.Ph exchange and its liquidity index has also risen for the first time recently.

XRP gets mentioned by the US government

As reported by U.Today, the US governmental agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has for the first time mentioned XRP in its document, describing the asset as a reliable remittance method which makes the process much faster and cheaper for companies that have a limit on conducting money wires each year.

The document called Ripple and XRP a safe harbor. It also called Ripple one of disruptors of the remittance industry, as well as the new SWIFT’s GPI system, a rival of Ripple.

Large XRP transactions keep pestering the community

Recently, a large XRP transaction was spotted by the Whale Alert Twitter account when a whopping 150 mln XRP was sent from one anonymous account to another.

Many in the XRP community often criticize those who do them, with Ripple getting the largest portion of criticism, when every month it releases 1 bln XRP from its escrow account. The community believes that these dumps keep the coin’s price low.

There may be a grain of truth in this, since the XRP price has been unable to cross the $0.30 threshold for a long time and recently, after dropping below $0.22, it has been floating in the $0,21 area.

Even the much-expected SWELL conference, annually conducted by Ripple, did not push the XRP price to the North, breaking expectations of many investors.
