Stellar Prospects – The Decentralized Open-Source Future of Banking?

📈 Price Predictions
On the weekly chart, we can note that XLM/USD recently broke below the support formed at 0.0185 and has now established new (minor) support at 0.0950.
Stellar Prospects – The Decentralized Open-Source Future of Banking?

Founded in 2014 by Jed McCaleb and operated by the non-profit organization Stellar.org, Stellar is a blockchain based network that aims to connect banks, people and payment systems in order to create a low-cost, high-speed environment for the transfer of value.

Similar to Ripple, Stellar acts as a cross-border payments system with the goal of reducing transaction fees and allowing the underbanked access to loans, microsavings and cost-cutting. To use their own words: “Move Money Across Borders Quickly, Reliably, And For Fractions Of A Penny”. If all this sounds familiar, that’s because Stellar’s founder, Jed McCaleb, is also the co-founder of Ripple, which is another cryptocurrency focused on the same low-fee, fast transactions across borders model.

Stellar’s native cryptocurrency is called Lumens and the trading symbol is XLM. All three terms are used interchangeably. At launch, the coin was named “stellar” but this was changed later in 2015 to “lumen” in order to distinguish it from the Stellar network itself and from Stellar.org, which is the organization that develops the network.

XLM/USD Technical Outlook – The Big Picture

On the weekly chart we can note that XLM/USD recently broke below the support formed at 0.0185 and has now established new (minor) support at 0.0950. The entire year 2018 was bearish for XLM, but 0.1875 rejected price several times, so it’s recent break is a rather big deal for long term price action.

Stellar Prospects – The Decentralized Open-Source Future of Banking?

The pair is trading below the 100 week Exponential Moving Average and below the long-term bearish trend line, with a Relative Strength Index that’s moving downwards and is not yet oversold. In other words, all clues point towards a continued downtrend for the months to come, possibly moving into 0.07 area which acted as S/R back in May 2017 and into 0.02 area if the former is broken.

The daily chart tells almost the same story as the weekly chart: a major support zone that rejected the price for almost an entire year was successfully broken (0.1875 area), the pair is trading below the 200 days Exponential Moving Average and below a long term bearish trend line.

Stellar Prospects – The Decentralized Open-Source Future of Banking?

The Relative Strength Index on the daily charts was oversold and has shown minor bullish divergence (the price was making a lower low and the RSI was making a double bottom), which already resulted in a small bounce at 0.0950, but it’s clear the buyers lack the strength to follow through and now price is just drifting sideways without a clear bias.

Given the current lack of interest from the bulls and for all the reasons stated above, this is a bearish chart, with the potential to go even lower if we look at things strictly from a technical standpoint. Of course, if Stellar.org announces new partnerships or developments that are genuinely positive, then surely the coin will rise but as long as the price is trading below 0.1875 and below the bearish trend line, the long-term outlook remains bearish.

Daily Chart Support: 0.0950

Weekly Chart Support: 0.0950 followed by 0.07xx

Daily Chart Resistance: 0.1875, bearish trend line

Weekly Chart Resistance: 0.1875, bearish trend line

Most likely scenario: break of immediate support, continued downside pressure as long as resistance is intact

Alternate scenario: re-test of long term support now turned resistance (0.1875); such a move would have to be fueled by fundamental reasons

Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230

🤷 Opinions
Litecoin price forecast 2019: The coin has the chance to reach the value of $230. What are the factors contributing to LTC growth?
Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230
Contents

Following Bitcoin’s path, Litecoin seems to be on the rise: it’s becoming quite popular among investors and is slowly gaining in price. There’s a very high probability that it will trade higher than $30 all year long, but what about its highest points?

Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230

Focus on numbers: Litecoin’s future in 2019

Although the bearish period seems to be over, the crypto market is still highly volatile. That’s why making any short-term predictions is quite hard. However, it doesn’t discourage analytical websites and people from making their own forecasts.

Thus, according to publications on various crypto websites, Litecoin has enough potential to reach the $1,000 edge. Some articles mention the number $2,000 – it seems to be far from reality. What are these suggestions based on? It’s not clear.

However, these forecasts are on par with predictions from some experts. For example, George Tung, a cryptocurrency analyst, claims that Litecoin will reach $1,500 towards the end of 2019. Brian Kelly, the head of BK Capital Management (LLC), is sure we might witness an LTC price of $500 or even $600 by the end of this year. Though conservative, this approach seems to be close to reality.

In November 2017, Litecoin was traded at $100 and investors managed to enjoy 25x ROI. If the market is hit by the bullish wave again, the scenario can repeat: LTC might jump from its current $48 to $1,200. But what if that won’t happen?

Our guess is that Litecoin can reach the range of $150-$230 by the end of 2019. How can it crawl to such numbers? First, in August 2019, the block reward for miners will be cut by 50%, which might provoke the growth of demand for LTC.

What will kick-start Litecoin growth?

Here’s the whole gamut of factors that can make Litecoin soar separately or altogether:

  • The rate of accepting Litecoin on exchanges and online websites will gradually increase. One of the adoption examples is the Surf Air store that started accepting LTC payments.

  • Of course, Litecoin’s growth is partially defined by Bitcoin’s performance. At the moment, BTC is on the rise. However, Litecoin seems to recover from the bearish period much faster and better.

  • At the same time, while Bitcoin’s gaining in traffic, users start complaining about growing transaction fees and slow performance. That’s when their attention switches to Litecoin, with its lower commissions and better speed.

  • A big influx of traffic on Coinbase is expected – it backs three major crypto assets, including LTC.

Thus, Litecoin is getting more and more media attention, which only contributes to its growth. Some Internet users are sure that it has to reach the $50 mark to get back on track and start gaining in value. This event is definitely around the corner!

Litecoin, EOS, Stellar, Monero Weekly Price Prediction. Can XLM climb to the Top 5 Soon?

📈 Price Predictions
The last week has been prolific for the crypto market with Bitcoin testing the key $4000 mark
Litecoin, EOS, Stellar, Monero Weekly Price Prediction. Can XLM climb to the Top 5 Soon?
Contents

The last week has been prolific for the crypto market with Bitcoin testing the key $4000 mark, Ethereum approaching $150 and the total market cap increasing to over $134 billion. This is a solid climb considering February 17 it was valued at only $121 billion, the market is coming back to crypto. As usual, Bitcoin is dragging the altcoins up with it and in this case, we are seeing green across the board.

Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis

Litecoin is currently the number 5 cryptocurrency by market cap with a circulating supply valued at $3,017,837,498 and a trading price of $49.82. Over the last 7 days, it has added 16.94%and is one of the top performers. The LTC/USD pair has been enjoying a steady climb since bottoming out at $22, is now supported by a strong bullish trend line and trading above the 100 days Exponential Moving Average (red). The recent break above the level at $47 makes $56 the next target which could be reached inside a week’s time. It must be noted that the Relative Strength Index has entered overbought for the second time and that may generate a pullback into the 100 EMA.

LTC/USD chart by tradingview

EOS (EOS) Price Analysis

With a market cap of $3,497,498,697, EOS is sitting just above Litecoin in the market cap rankings at number 4. It is trading at 3.86 against the US Dollar and has increased a whopping 37.56% in the last 7 days. The recent climb broke the resistance at $3.10 taking EOS above the 100 days EMA and painting a bullish picture. The most likely scenario is a touch of the level at $4.60 which was support in the past and has not turned into resistance yet. The RSI is deep in overbought territory which is an early sign that a retracement will soon follow but, however, as long as the price is above $3.10 the bias is bullish.

EOS/USD chart by tradingview

Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis

Stellar added 12.95% in the last 7 days and is currently occupying the number 8 spot in CoinMarketCap rankings with a circulating supply valued at $1,711,752,210. It has a trading price of 0.089 against the US Dollar and, from a long-term perspective, the pair is in a clear and strong downtrend. The but is that after reaching the bottom at 0.073 the has started to show signs of bullish pressure. For now, the bulls and bears are battling for the control of 0.092 resistance, which if broken, will likely generate additional upside movement. A failed break here would send the pair back into 0.073 support.

XLM/USD chart by tradingview

Monero (XMR) Price Analysis

Currently sitting in the number 13 spot with a market cap of $875,852,285, Monero is trading at $52.10 and added more than 9% over the last 7 days. Monero has had a weaker climb than its peers and is still trading below the 100 days EMA and below the resistance at $59. XMR/USD is in a range created by $39 support and $59 resistance so before we can see stronger moves to either side one of the boundaries must be broken. It’s very likely to see a move into $59 - $60, where the next short-to-medium term direction will be decided.

Binance Coin (BNB) – Forecasts and Prospects

📈 Price Predictions
Binance Coin (BNB) is the native token of Binance – the world’s largest exchange in the crypto market – and may enjoy further growth in the short term
Binance Coin (BNB) – Forecasts and Prospects
Contents

Binance Coin (BNB) is the native token of Binance – the world’s largest exchange in the crypto market. It is powered by the Ethereum platform and runs under the ERC20 protocol. The total supply of BNB is slightly under 200 mln. Recently, it has managed to rise on Coinmarketcap and grab position #10.

Binance launched its coin in the summer of 2017.

The exchange provides a big catalyst for its token. Binance intends to set aside 20 percent of its quarterly revenue to recover from the market 50 percent of the BNB supply that has been sold already, and then it plans to burn those coins. This would ensure a limited offer of the asset and may well let its price soar.

Binance has already conducted a coinburn recently, on January 16. Back then, $9.4 mln worth of BNB coins was destroyed. After that, Binance Coin saw major momentum, and its price got over the $10 mark.

BNB’s long-term prospects

At the end of 2018, the CEO of Binance announced that the exchange is about to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX). On February 20, 2019, the testnet phase of the DEX started.

The decentralized platform is backed by the Binance Chain – a blockchain developed specially for it by Binance. BNB is presently an ERC20-based token, but ultimately it will migrate to the new platform to turn into a native token.

This roadmap could ensure a massive rise for BNB in the future. However, if the DEX fails to deliver on the community’s expectations, everything may happen the other way round.

Right after the announcement regarding the DEX, BNB began ascending and since then has managed to grow from $6.20 to $11.67. Its current price is $10.77, as per Coinmarketcap.

Ethereum Price Analysis from Twitter: From $145 to $200 and Higher? What’s the Chance of Ethereum Breaking Out?

Ethereum is at the center of attention. There are a lot of things happening to ETH recently, but the best news is the uptrend which seems to have come. What do Twitter users think about it? Let’s trace the recent history of Ether and ETH price predictions in the latest tweets.

Starting from the middle of February, Ethereum began rising in price by 10%, step by step:

By February 21st, it has reached the $145 threshold. What’s going to happen next?

It’s not surprising that crypto traders remain skeptic after a long bear market. Most of them are still afraid of serious fluctuations. However, some are quite optimistic:

Many are sure that Ethereum is back on track:

Anyway, doesn’t it open new opportunities for investment?

Binance Coin Six-Month Price Forecast – One Major Catalyst

📈 Price Predictions
Binance Coin (BNB) is the brainchild of one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the world; Binance
Binance Coin Six-Month Price Forecast – One Major Catalyst

 

Binance Coin (BNB) is the brainchild of one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the world; Binance. It runs natively on the Ethereum blockchain under the ERC20 protocol, has a total supply of 200 million and is the 10th cryptocurrency by Coinmarketcap. The token was initially launched in July 2017 and has a solid following.

Binance has a major long-term catalyst for its coin. The company plans to use 20% of their quarterly profits to buyback and then burn 50% of the entire supply of BNB. This means that eventually only 100 million BNB will exist which creates scarcity and possible price increase.

The latest coin burn occurred on January 16 when the Binance team destroyed $9.4 million worth of BNB tokens. Since then, Binance Coin enjoyed very bullish price action, which took it above $11.0

BNB/USD Technical Analysis – The Big Picture

In late 2018, Binance announced they are preparing to launch a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) and on January 20, 2019, said DEX entered public testnet phase. The DEX is powered by Binance Chain, which is a blockchain developed by - you guessed it – Binance. BNB, which is currently an ERC 20 token will eventually be migrated to the new blockchain and will become its native asset.

This could spell massive upswings for BNB in the long run, but could turn into adversity if the DEX fails to live up to expectations. One thing is certain: shortly after the announcement, Binance Coin started to enjoy positive sentiment and since then the token has risen from $6.20 to a high of $11.67, currently trading at $10.35.

BNB/USD chart by tradingview

 

From a Weekly chart perspective, the token is not in a clear trend but it has been tracing lower highs and lower lows since it hit a recent high. The climb that started at $4.30 shows strong bullish pressure and could develop into long term bullish price action once the coin retraces to support. The Relative Strength is moving north, without being overbought, which supports a bullish scenario for the next months. For long-term bullish activity to happen resistance at $11.80 - $12.00 must be broken decisively.

On a Daily chart we can better see the importance of the resistance level at $11.80. It has been touched multiple times from above and below and more often than not, price was rejected. Most recently, we can see that rising price hit resistance at this level again and is now retracing lower.

Binance Coin

 

Considering all the factors involved, Binance Coin could climb into $18 area over the next six months but for this to happen Binance’s DEX must perform well. Immediate retracements should find support at $9.0, but a break below would not invalidate the long term bullish scenario as long as the trend line is intact and the DEX project is still viable.

Daily Chart Support: $9.0 and 100 days EMA (red line)
Weekly Chart Support: bullish trend line and $4.30
Daily Chart Resistance: $11.80 and $15.0
Weekly Chart Resistance: $11.80, $15.0 and $18.20
Most likely scenario: continuation of bullish movement, break of $11.80 and move into $15.0 where a deep retracement may occur; Longer-term a touch of $18 over a few months

Alternate scenario: breakdown below the bullish trend line
