Take a look at what's happening in the world of crypto by reading U.Today’s top four news stories.
Terra network will be reborn, according to official voting
Terra's co-founder Do Kwon has come up with a new revival plan that includes a forking of the existing network and distribution of new tokens. The results of the “official” vote on Terra Station show that around 78% of voters support Kwon’s initiative, while only 0.36% are against the plan. A total of 20.2% of voters chose the "No with veto" option, and 1.3% abstained. As previously covered by U.Today, Terra community members created their own vote, in which 92% of users chose not to create a fork of the existing network. The results of this vote differ drastically from the abovementioned one, but one should keep in mind that community voting represents the opinion of a small group of Terra ecosystem participants.
Here's why Bitcoin looks ready to plunge further: Bloomberg
Bloomberg’s analysts are concerned about the current position of Bitcoin. Despite the recent rebound of 15% from the lows it crashed to last week, the flagship crypto looks vulnerable to another drawdown. According to the analysts, Bitcoin's recent rally has resulted in the formation of a "saucer-top" pattern on an hourly BTC chart. A “head and shoulders” pattern has emerged within it, indicating a trend change from bullish to bearish. The pattern has been activated after BTC dropped back under the neckline of the formation. To avoid the risk of a further downfall, BTC needs to rise above the $30,800 level.
At the moment, Bitcoin is trading at $29,840, per CoinMarketCap.
