While Tesla Inc. has is backed by tech bulls, the bullish momentum in the altcoin seems to have been brought about by ‘price discovery phase’ and surging volume. It’s price broke above the resistance below $5 entering the FOMO phase according to an analyst for Zerohedge. The bullish flag past $6 realized into massive gains of 20% in the following day.

Nevertheless, while numerous forged partnerships are acting as bullish catalysts, leading analyst like Ryan Selkis are still apprehensive of the fundamentals behind LINK’s rise. He tweeted,

ChainLink is proof that no one knows what they’re talking about and crypto “fundamentals” is basically macro sentiment, alchemy, and animal spirits.

Chainlink formed valuable partnerships this year beginning with its price oracle integration on Coinbase and decentralized exchanges. It also integrated with China’s national blockchain network, BSN, and crypto exchange, Huobi. Crypto trader and analyst, Josh Rager, who is still bullish tweeted,

Oh, so you like the $TSLA pump

Just wait until you see $LINK and $XTZ over the next 6 months

Why Must Tezos Follow?

The crypto markets represent a tendency of money inflow in altcoins, often with a definitive close trend.

Social media sentiments and price action of Tezos [XTZ] and Chainlink [LINK] strongly highlight this trend. The correlation coefficient of the Tezos with LINK is currently at 0.9 (high), while with Bitcoin [BTC] it is 0.69.

The price action of the two altcoins also represents a similar trend. Nevertheless, traders would still be looking for the confirmation of the breakout and consolidation above the resistance around 0.00033-0.00035 BTC.

Crypto Analyst Tone Vays Says Bitcoin Breakout Not Over Yet, Predicts Timeline for 300% Rally

Published

on

Veteran crypto strategist Tone Vays says the big Bitcoin breakout has more gas left in the tank.

In a new video, Vays explains why he believes the bullish rally that pushed Bitcoin above resistance of $12,000 is not yet over.

“That is exactly what I’m kind of foreshadowing going into the future. We still have this triangle right here and we can still pull back into this triangle, but I do think that right now, there is still enough FOMO (fear of missing out) to get us higher into that high $13,000 range.”

As Bitcoin draws near its next resistance level at $14,000, the crypto analyst predicts that market participants will start to take profits.

“That breather could be horizontal consolidation or that breather could be a pullback all the way back down to $12,000 or even as low as $11,500.”

Although Vays sees a correction on the horizon, he is long-term bullish on the world’s most dominant cryptocurrency.

“[The] monthly view is going to be great. We’re going to close as the second-highest month ever and we got a shot at closing at the highest month ever if we can close at $14,000. That would be the highest monthly close ever, which would also be absolutely great.”

Vays also highlights his current personal sentiments on BTC.

“I’m pretty damn bullish right now. I don’t know if that’s stupid or not but I’m pretty damn bullish. I haven’t been this bullish since early 2017.”

As for his long-term BTC forecast, the veteran trader believes that Bitcoin is poised to ignite a massive rally within the next six months.

“Let’s be reasonable here. Let’s say we have a 300% move. That takes us to $50,000.”

However, Vays believes Bitcoin will suffer a massive devaluation after going as high as $50,000 before recovering and climbing above $100,000.

“I can see a 50% crash, which would take us to about $20,000 to $25,000. Let’s say we go back to $20,000 – the prior swing high… And then from there, I could see, this would be fast, I could see a slow grind back up to $50,000. 

From this $50,000 area or let’s from that $40,000 area, we go up another 300% to 400%. This is something that’s realistic to me. That takes us to say $150,000 from there. How long would that take? Before the next halving.”

Bitcoin Breaks New 2020 High As Total Market Cap Topped $400 Billion (Market Watch)

Published

on

Bitcoin continues with the 2020 records and just a few hours ago marked a fresh high of above $13,350. Most alternative coins followed suit with impressive increases, but the market has calmed since then. The entire cryptocurrency market clocked at above $400 billion.

Bitcoin To Yet Another 2020 High

CryptoPotato reported a few days ago that the primary cryptocurrency exceeded the August 2020 high of about $12,500 and reached $13,200. What followed was a slight retracement to about $13,000 and stagnation yesterday.

Nevertheless, the volatility returned in the past 24 hours, and BTC headed towards new highs. This time, Bitcoin broke above $13,350. In fact, according to data from Bitstamp, BTC’s new 2020 high is at $13,362.

Another sharp rejection followed, and the asset tanked briefly below $13,000. Nevertheless, the bulls have since driven it above the coveted mark, and BTC trades at about $12,940.

A compelling chart recently revealed that Bitcoin is forming an inverse head and shoulders pattern. If it’s to play out, the cryptocurrency could soon skyrocket even further and top its all-time high of $20,000.

Altcoins Follow Up And Calm Down

Most alternative coins experienced similarly increased volatility as Bitcoin. Ethereum surged to a new 7-week high of nearly $420. However, ETH quickly retraced and is now hovering around $409 again.

Ripple’s highest level came at about $0,26, but XRP has since decreased to below $0.253.

Thus, on a 24-hour scale, most larger-cap altcoins have remained essentially at the same positions as yesterday, despite the brief price jumps. Chainlink and Litecoin have registered the most gains of about 3.6%. LINK trades close to $12.35, and LTC is positioned at $56.3.

The most impressive gainer since yesterday is Filecoin. After the recent controversy and continuous price slump, FIL has surged by 45% in the past 24 hours.

Ocean Protocol (18%), Quant (17.5%), THETA (10.2%), Reserve Rights (10.2%), and Ampleforth (10%) have also increased by double-digit percentages.

Ripple Board Member Arrested on Cyberstalking Charges

Published

on

  • Ripple board member and a close family friend of US President Donald Trump, Ken Kurson, has been arrested following allegations of cyberstalking.
  • According to the New York Times, Kurson has stalked and harassed a total of five victims, including his ex-wife.
  • He was reportedly most vicious against a friend of his ex-wife, whom he blamed for his divorce. He used pseudonyms to contact the hospital she worked and sent fraudulent emails claiming that she had an affair with her boss. Kurson also initiated a flood of negative Yelp reviews, threatening emails, and anonymous calls and messages to other hospital employees. 
  • The woman claimed that Kurson had used the same tactics against another female victim, who was fired from her job. The criminal complaint also asserted that the second victim is Kurson’s ex-wife.
  • The public corruption unit of the United States attorney’s office in Brooklyn is handling the case. A judge released Kurson from custody pending trial. 
  • Kurson is a close friend of Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. Kushner had previously appointed Kurson as the editor in chief when he owned The New York Observer in 2013. 
  • In 2018, the Trump administration offered Kurson a seat on the board of the National Endowment for the Humanities. After a routine background check from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Kurson withdrew from consideration.
  • Kurson joined the board of directors at Ripple in early 2017. The announcement highlighted that Kurson was one of the first investors in the company.
