Cardano [ADA] tries to give a push back to the market crash with multiple developmental announcements

The bear attack has been quite the juggernaut with several cryptocurrencies seeing their supports break consistently. Cardano [ADA] which has felt the bear’s pressure too, has been on quite the developmental roll.
Just recently, Charles Hoskinson, the CEO and Founder of IOHK informed users about the upcoming 1.4 and Shelly update for the Cardano 1.4 network. Hoskinson had said:
“The update 1.4 for Cardano is coming along well and we’re in regression testing right now. We’ve had a few regressions but nothing significant is found yet and it’s a lot of new code. There has been a huge amount of refactoring on the core, and we’ve found new database solutions, so we’ve gone from lots of storage to little storage and become much more efficient.”
The computer scientist had also given his thoughts about the new appointees to the Cardano Foundation. Hoskinson’s comment comes in the wake of the appointment of Pascal Schmid as the interim Chairman of the Foundation Council. In Hoskinson’s words:
“What this means is that at the moment Pascal is the current custodian of the Foundation and will be in charge of the transition to reinvigorate and reconstruct the Foundation. There are a lot of things that have to be done between now and when the foundation can become effective as an entity.”
The IOHK official also stated that he would like to see IOHK and Emurgo working together and that might be a possibility in 60 days. He also added that it would be great to see diversity and community management with large grants and the hundreds of thousands of dollars being given to many different organizations. According to Hoskinson, these organizations can then be responsible for building Cardano communities all across the planet.

Bitcoin [BTC/USD] Technical Analysis: Cryptocurrency cries for help as bear continues to destroy price supports

The bear has not been kind to the cryptocurrency market with almost all the coins bleeding red. Bitcoin [BTC], which was speculated to hit highs of $25,000, has gone ahead and fallen below the $5,000 mark, a crash that has sent the entire cryptoverse into a frenzy.
1-hour

The one-hour chart for Bitcoin [BTC] shows a drastic price drop. The support breaks have been quite rapid, with multiple supports breaking one after the other. The new support, at the moment, is at $4499.8 while the immediate resistance is holding at $6,474.6. The downtrends on the chart have been quite visible, with the cryptocurrency falling from $6,474 to $5,673.1, and then falling to $4,615.4.
The Chaikin Money Flow [CMF] indicator has crashed into the bear realm, which indicates that the money flowing out of the market is greater than the inflow.
The Relative Strength Index [RSI] has just begun its trip into the RSI zone after breaking the oversold barrier. This shows that the selling pressure is more than the buying pressure.
1-day

The one-day Bitcoin graph paints a bearish picture all throughout. The indicators too have taken the side of the bear. The current one-day support is at $4,616.8 with the downtrend bringing the price down in two phases: $8,193-$6,493.4 and $6,493.43 -$4,621.
The Bollinger bands indicate the start of a massive price outbreak tending towards the bear zone. The upper band and the lower band have both taken sharp turns in the opposite directions, signifying the price drop to continue for more time.
The MACD indicator shows the signal line and the MACD line falling in tandem after a bearish crossover. The MACD histogram has been flat for a long time with the bearish graph taking over.
Conclusion
Bitcoin’s misery looks to continue for a longer period of time with the prices free-falling beyond expectations. The indicators show that a trend change does not seem to be around the corner,  with the bear currently speeding in the driver’s seat.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] SV should be seen as a high-risk investment, says Kraken; Bittrex follows suit

On November 19, Kraken, a popular cryptocurrency exchange, released a statement regarding the ongoing Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork. The fork, which has been led by two parties on the BCH network, has resulted in the formation of two tokens: Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV.
The ABC implementation of the BCH network has been substantially more popular among major players in the industry like Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum [ETH], and Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin [LTC]. Kraken too has somewhat distanced itself from the Satoshi Vision implementation as evidenced by the circular released by the exchange.
Kraken has gone ahead and stated that they will support Bitcoin SV on the exchange, but has given a warning along with it. The circular stated:
“Bitcoin SV does NOT meet Kraken’s usual listing requirements. It should be seen as an extremely high risk investment. There are many red flags that traders should be aware of.’
The Kraken team has also said that when it comes to the SV implementation, no known wallets support replay protection. They have also said that the miners on the SV network are “apparently subsidized or are operating at a loss”. The exchange has also admitted that they had done only very minimal code review when it came to the SV network.
The exchange has reiterated multiple times about the lack of safety on the SV network and has put the onus on the users if they want to deal with the repercussions. Kraken stated:
“You should always consider the available liquidity when trading in any market and manage this risk accordingly. But the liquidity of a newly listed asset may be very low, so caution is especially warranted. Be extremely careful with market orders and orders that trigger market orders (e.g. stop loss). To be safe, we recommend the use of limit orders to help ensure that your orders don’t get filled at unexpected prices.”
Bittrex, another popular cryptocurrency exchange, was also dealing with the BCH hard fork, and said that Bitcoin SV deposits and withdrawals were open for users. Even Bittrex has asked users to tread with caution while sending BCH/SV as there is no replay protection.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork saga continues; BCHABC soars above BCHSV in terms of price

The Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork has garnered a lot of attention over the past few weeks in the cryptoverse. The end product of the fork was the creation of two different cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV. The ABC team was led by Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver and the Bitmain CEO Jihan WU. The SV team was spearheaded by nChain’s Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre. At the moment, the BCHABC is ahead of BCHSV in terms of both blocks mined and price.
At press time, Bitcoin Cash ABC was falling at 3.83% with the market cap still in flux. The 24-hour volume was holding at $64.203 million and the cryptocurrency was trading for $255.02. A majority of the cryptocurrency’s volume came from Binance, which had a hold on $24.436 million of all the BCHABC trade. Binance was followed by Poloniex, the exchange on which 9.40% of the total BCHABC trade occurred.

The bear market showed no mercy towards Craig Wright’s project, with the cryptocurrency falling by a massive 27.14%. BCHSV was trading for $91.96 with the market cap still undecided. The 24-hour market volume of $89.275 million held by BCHSV was commandingly higher than BCHABC. Binance has the majority hold here too with 32.05% of all BCHSV trade being conducted on the Changpeng Zhao led cryptocurrency exchange.

The hard fork has created clear battle lines between users on the network which includes famous officials like Charlie Lee, the Founder of Litecoin [LTC]. He had said:
“The thing, why is there so much drama when miners should be the ones deciding. There shouldn’t be any drama right…whoever has the most hashrate wins.”
Roger Ver, who has been a massive proponent of the ABC network had also stated:
“In my opinion, I really don’t know the real after effects of the fork. It can be both good and bad for the entire community. It’s just like the Y2K scare, you know. Everyone expected planes to fall out of the sky but in the end, nothing much happened.”

The Awesome Oscillator has reflected the bear attack, with the market momentum almost negligible now.
Conclusion
The support break has done Cardano no favors with the AO, CMF and the MACD all pointing to a continued bear run.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH]’s Roger Ver: Even Monero or Dash could be accepted as world currency

The Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork was the main topic of conversation over the past week, with the involvement of several parties within the BCH network. The hard fork which was made popular by Jihan Wu, Roger Ver, Craig Wright, and Calvin Ayre occurred on November 15, when the Bitcoin Cash network split into two, the Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV.
Speaking to Crypto Coin Trader, Ver, the Chief Executive Officer of Bitcoin.com acknowledged the right between the parties within the BCH network and stated that:
“The internet has a lot of good people and lots of bad people. I only tend to engage with the good ones.”
He also said that he was pleased with how the Bitcoin Cash hard fork took place on the 15th, where the Bitcoin Cash ABC team had the lead over the SV team. The ABC side had mined more blocks under the new consensus rules. He went on to say:
“I stayed up all night watching the fork. It was like Christmas night for me.”
The Bitcoin.com official said that he does not mind if cryptocurrencies like Monero or Dash was also accepted as a world currency. He reiterated that his only aim was to provide economic freedom to the people and Bitcoin Cash at the moment was the best way to do that. Ver added that the fork is a good thing and even called back to original Bitcoin hard fork, saying:
“I wish the bch-btc split had occurred earlier. If the fork had happened had happened before then Bitcoin Cash could have had a multitude more use cases.”
Roger Ver was also in the news recently when he talked about Bitcoin.com launching a cryptocurrency exchange. He had said:
“Most of the time I say something important and nobody really cares. Other times I mention something in passing and the idea of the exchange was said exactly like that. Of course, we are going to launch an exchange, we are Bitcoin Cash. It would be highly surprising if we don’t launch an exchange.”

Tron [TRX] surpasses Ethereum [ETH] in terms of dApp volume with 422 million transactions

On November 17, Justin Sun, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer [CEO] gave the Tron community another reason to celebrate. The Tron official stated that Tron had surpassed Ethereum [ETH] in terms of dApp volume.
Reports show that IDEX, which is the most successful dApp on the Ethereum network has a transaction volume of 2430 ETH transactions in a span of 24 hours. Tronbet, on the other hand, has over 422 million TRX transactions. Post the announcement, users on Twitter were quite excited:
Lucas, a Twitter user, stated:
“@kamagames @akuzn2 you must read this! #ethereum is outdated #tron is the future especially for online casino’s.”
NanCrypto, another fan of the cryptocurrency said:
“ I have said time and again that TRX will go up to the moon and Ethereum will be left behind in the dust. This event is more than enough proof that I was right.”
The dApp achievement comes in the wake of Tron accepting DAPPHOUSE to run as a Super Representative member. Justin Sun had stated that DAPPHOUSE is committed to researching and developing Dapp and “is providing a good solution and display platform for the operation of the applications.”
Back in September, Sun had even asked developers and users to stop deploying pictures on the Ethereum blockchain and instead shift to the Tron blockchain. In his words:
“Yes! Please stop deploying d-apps to Ethereum and migrate to #TRON network immediately! We are 100x faster than #ETH and fully compatible with #ethereum. We 100% guarantee better user experience!”
Tron had also made news recently when it was revealed that the total number of mainnet accounts on the Tron network had surpassed 600,000.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH]’s Roger Ver: “We are definitely launching a cryptocurrency exchange”

In a recent interview, Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Bitcoin.com spoke about his vision to start a cryptocurrency exchange as well as the recent market crash that shocked and surprised the cryptocurrency community.
Speaking to EAK TV, the Bitcoin Cash [BCH] proponent was confident in stating that his company will most definitely launch an exchange sometime in the near future. He said:
“Most of the time I say something important and nobody really cares. Other times I mention something in passing and the idea of the exchange was said exactly like that. Of course, we are going to launch an exchange, we are Bitcoin Cash. It would be highly surprising if we don’t launch an exchange.”
He went on to say that all Bitcoin.com needs to do to launch the exchange is to get some pieces of the puzzle together. Ver went on to talk about the recent market crash that led to the market losing over $25 billion. The CEO stated that the price was the least interesting thing about Bitcoin. According to him, people should understand and appreciate the functionalities of Bitcoin, rather than just the price. In his words:
“The real usage of the Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are their use cases. People should not worry about the price falling as that is not the aim of the industry. The real benefit should be to transit commerce and other stuff. Once the cryptocurrency attains a use case then more and more people will use it.”
Roger Ver was also in the news recently when nChain’s Craig Wright had sent an unprofessional and crass email to the Bitcoin.com official. One part of the mail read:
“Bitcoin will die before ABC shits on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few hours. Will you? Side with ABC, you hate Bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means.”

Bitcoin [BTC], XRP, Ethereum [ETH] and Cardano [ADA] get destroyed by the bear’s all-out attack

The bear attack on November 14 saw a lot of the cryptocurrencies crumble under the bear pressure which also coincided with multiple support breaks. Bitcoin [BTC] faced the bear’s first wave of attack, with the cryptocurrency plummeting below the all-time psychological support of $6000.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was still languishing below $6000 combined with its market cap going under $100 billion. Just prior to the drop, Jihan Wu, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Bitmain had tweeted:
“I have no intention to start a hash war with CSW, because if I do 9by relocating hash power from btc mining to bch mining.btc price will dump below yearly support; it may even breach $5000. But since CSW is relentless, I am all in to fight till death!”
Another coin that shared Bitcoin’s fate was Cardano [ADA], which saw it crash to its lowest price point in over a year. Cardano was also in the news recently when the ADA team conducted an Ask Me Anything [AMA] session to talk about the reward schemes in their stake pools.
One user asked about staking ADA using a Ledger hardware wallet and Raspberry Pi computer. To this, Jonne33, a Reddit user stated:
“Once delegated you can put your ada on Ledger or even on a paper wallet. You don’t need to be online after that (ie you don’t need raspberry pi or something). Raspberry Pi can be used initially for accessing your Ada and delegating it via Linux Daedalus client (still in development) or via different light wallets which are popping up currently.”
Ethereum [ETH] and XRP also felt the ripple from the price drop with XRP taking over Ethereum in terms of market cap. Both the cryptocurrencies witnessed double-digit weekly losses where Ethereum slid by 12% while XRP fell by a significant 18%.

Breaking: Bitcoin Cash [BCH]’s ABC implementation takes the lead in the hard fork; ‘BAB’ and ‘BSV’ appear as new ticker symbols

The November 15 Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork took off to a start with the Jihan Wu and Roger Ver led ABC implementation of the cryptocurrency gaining the first two blocks as per the new consensus rules. At press time, the ABC team was still in the lead by one block after the SV Pool mined their first block.
The split has also resulted in Bitcoin Cash charts being unavailable on Tradingview with the ‘BCH’ ticker symbol going missing. The new charts after the split are holding as BSV and BAB on Tradingview. Bitfinex, a popular cryptocurrency exchange, also announced that the new ticker symbol will be decided once the hard fork is complete.
The hard fork has been making news for the past couple of days with the fourth-largest cryptocurrency seeing massive conflicts within the network. At the time of writing, the ABC implementation of Bitcoin Cash was leading compared to the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision led by nChain’s Craig Wright.
Craig Wright was also in the news recently when he talked about Bitcoin’s connection to the infamous Silk Road. He had stated:
“Adoption didn’t happen because of Silk Road. If you looked at other centralized coins that happened in the 90s and things like this within the first three years, you actually had banks starting to use them; Deutsche Bank was using DigiCash, others were using it. So Silk Road actually killed adoption in Bitcoin. Right now, we would be in a world with probably 500 million people using Bitcoin at least on a daily basis if it wasn’t for Silk Road.”
Ver, on the ABC side had stated:
“Even when the big blockers wound up having basically the majority of the hash rate – they had more than 50% at one point – they were still scared to set a flag date… Like, okay here’s the date we’re gonna mine the bigger block. And because they were all scared to actually take action we wound up where we are.”

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork on Coinbase further detailed out; November 15 event stirs community

The upcoming Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork has created quite a sensation in the cryptocurrency community, with several major players announcing their perspective on the event. On November 13, Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in terms of users, released a set of guidelines that BCH holders will need to follow during the fork.
The exchange, which had earlier released a circular that talked about the pause on sends and receives of Bitcoin Cash on the platform, revealed a new addendum. Coinbase said:
“Due to recent developments, we have now determined that it will be necessary to also pause all buys, sells, and trading of BCH starting at 8:00AM PST on Thursday on Coinbase.com, in the iOS and Android apps, and on Coinbase Pro and Prime. Accordingly, during the time of the pause, you will not be able to sell or remove your BCH from Coinbase.”
The company has also informed users that if they need to access their respective BCH during the fork, they will have to remove it from the exchange before the process begins. Coinbase has also laid out a detailed instruction list for users that will enable them to handle the cryptocurrency during the hard fork.
Coinbase has stated that after the BCH transactions are paused, a snapshot will be taken of the existing BCH balances. The exchange will then monitor the fork for network consensus to ensure that the fork happens successfully. The circular further said:
“If another viable chain exists, customers will have the ability to withdraw funds at a future date. We anticipate this will take at least a few weeks, but may take longer.”
The Bitcoin Cash hard fork was also in the news recently when Bitinex announced pre-fork trading on their platform. The exchange had stated:
“While we want to make such forks available to our customers, our limited and temporary support for them is not and should not be construed as support for any particular project.

XRP is 1,000x faster and cheaper than Bitcoin [BTC], says Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse

The cryptocurrency market has been steadfast in its march towards mainstream adoption recently, with several crypto-companies and its officials creating partnerships with established institutions recently. Ripple has been an example of cryptocurrency organizations teaming up with banks and other financial institutions.
In a recent interview, Brad Garlinghouse, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Ripple, spoke about the company’s association with other parties in the space as well as the reasons why XRP will be a useful commodity. The Ripple official stated that XRP’s long-term growth will be evaluated by the problems it solves, something the users are clamoring for.
Garlinghouse went on to say that XRP solves real-world problems, just like how Ripple aims to provide seamless cross-border transactions. He went on to say that the cryptocurrency market is still in its nascent stages and the sheer number of speculations it is embroiled in is only because of its disruption rate. The CEO stated:
“Yes, there is a lot of speculation and hype about Ripple and the crypto community as a whole. What we need to do now is to separate the two from each other and focus on expanding the real world use cases.”
According to Garlinghouse, more and more companies are entering the cryptocurrency ecosystem because of how it changes a lot of processes for the better. He added that XRP’s services are a “1,000 times faster than Bitcoin [BTC] and a 1,000 times cheaper than Bitcoin”. The tech honcho also revealed that 2018 has been a massive year for Ripple, with the company partnering with two banks almost every week.
Brad Garlinghouse went on to say that financial regulators need to make decisions with clarity as it will have a lasting impact on the cryptocurrency industry. He stated that the launch of Bakkt by ICE, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange, is a good sign of the industry moving in the right direction. He said:
“With organizations like Fidelity and Bakkt entering the space, regulators have to create an atmosphere of investing with certainty and clarity. This will enable rapid growth to occur throughout.”

“Bitcoin [BTC] will be made better than every other cryptocurrency”, says nChain’s Craig Wright

In a recent talk, nChain’s Craig Wright spoke about the future prospects of Bitcoin [BTC] and the ways to achieve Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision. He also touched upon how Proof of Work [PoW] is different from Proof of Stake [PoS].
Craig Wright stated that capitalism is important for the future of developments. He said that Bitcoin and its iterations need to be stable to inculcate a sense of security amongst users of the cryptocurrency. According to Wright, Bitcoin as a concept needs to be the same in the coming years or else it loses its value as a transactional commodity.
He also stressed on the fact that cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin as a whole, do not flout any rules but actually work under the ambit of the law. Digital signatures were also mentioned by the nChain official, citing its credibility as an accepted mode of payment. Wright said:
“ If the system changes in 6,12,15 months then no one will use it. The cryptocurrency market needs to be stable if the user base has to increase. Bitcoin has always been about economics and the need of the hour is to implement it in a good way.”
He went on to say that Bitcoin’s original scripting language will not be tampered with and also teased users with an upcoming development that will be announced on Coingeek. Wright focused on how Bitcoin will surpass all the other cryptocurrencies in terms of use cases and will make all processes seamless.
The nChain official added that there is an aim to make Bitcoin embrace the internet and make it even better than the Internet of Things [IoT]. Craig Wright was also in the news when Bitmain’s Jihan Wu called him a Blockstream spy. The CEO of Bitmain made this comment on the basis of an email that said:
“I see now that Roger Ver, Rick Falkvinge, Olivier Janssens, and Jihan Wu appear to be aggressively attacking you in public and trying to distance BCH from you. To the best of my knowledge, all of these parties previously believed in you. It seems to me that it is simply a matter of time before a forceful public denunciation by someone previously cited as proof of your merit, such as Gavin, brings things crashing down around you.”
