Ethereum [ETH] dApp users drop as EOS and Tron dominate the market

EOS tops the dApps chart with its PRA CandyBox listing on blockchain dApps website, Dapp Radar. In the list of the most popular dApps on the website, EOS is in competition with Tron’s dApps. However, this finding is not good news for Ethereum [ETH] as it holds only one dApp in the top 30. On the other hand, EOS has 13 of its dApps listed.
Ethereum’s platform has a total of 1,812 dApps against the 323 dApps that EOS has. On the contrary, a recent report suggests that more than 50% of EOS dApps are used per day, while only a mere 10% of the ETH dApps were used daily.
A huge disparity is noted in terms of the volume of transactions per day on the two blockchains. Transactions on the Ethereum network are around 200,000 per day while EOS executes 450,000 transactions per day.
According to charts published by dApp Radar, daily users of the ETH dApps from December 2017 to February 2018 shaped a large volume, rallying above 17000. The numbers fell for a period of three months but continued to maintain a minimum user base of 8500.
The lowest phase recorded for the dApps on Ethereum was registered in July 2018, when the users per day fell below 8000. Gaming is the most popular space on the ETH platform with 1535 users, while gambling, exchanges and marketplaces have 1535, 800 and 162 users respectively.
Besides, another dApp to join the EOS bandwagon is NEO network’s Effect, the popular AI-powered dApp. It was launched on the NEO blockchain in 2017 and will migrate to the EOS decentralized platform soon.
The reason cited by Jesse Eisses, CTO of Effect.AI stated:
“The current implementation of the blockchain can’t get to the promised transaction throughput and the smart contract compilers besides C# are still immature.”

Crypto Market Targets Fresh Highs: Bitcoin Cash, EOS, XLM, TRX Price Analysis

The total crypto market cap declined recently, but it found support near the $126.5B level.
Bitcoin cash price corrected lower and declined below the $146 and $145 support levels.
EOS price is currently consolidating gains above the $3.85 support area
Stellar (XLM) corrected higher, but it struggled to break the $0.0920 resistance area.
Tron (TRX) is confined in a range below the $0.0255 resistance area.

The crypto market is holding a crucial support and it could bounce back. Bitcoin (BTC), BCH, Ethereum, EOS, ripple, stellar (XLM), tron (TRX) and other major altcoins are likely to grind higher.
Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Recently, bitcoin cash price started a downside correction after it failed near the $150 resistance area against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair slowly declined and it recently broke the $146 and $145 support levels. The price is currently trading below $145, with supports near the $144, $142 and $140 levels.
On the upside, the price could face sellers near $146 before it retests the $148 resistance. The main resistance for buyers is near the $150 level, above which the price will most likely trade towards $155 in the coming days.
EOS, Stellar (XLM) and Tron (TRX) Price Analysis
EOS price remained in a solid uptrend and it recently broke the $3.80 and $3.85 resistance levels. The price settled above the $3.85 level and it is currently consolidating gains. On the upside, an initial resistance is at $3.90 and $3.92, above which the price could revisit the key $4.00 resistance area. On the downside, a break below $3.85 may push the price towards the $3.80 support.
Stellar price started an upside correction and it recently broke the $0.0850 resistance level. However, XLM price failed to gain strength above the $0.0920 resistance and later corrected lower. On the downside, supports are visible near the $0.0850 and $0.0820 levels.
Tron price mostly traded in a broad range above the $0.0450 support area. TRX price recently tested the $0.0255 resistance, where sellers emerged. The price declined again below $0.0250 and it may revisit the $0.0245 support area in the near term.

Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there was a spike above the $132.5B resistance level. However, the market cap failed to stay above the $132.0B level and later declined. It broke the $130.0B support and tested the key $126.5B support area. Later, the market cap bounced back, but it is facing sellers near the $130.0B resistance level. Therefore, there could be a few bearish moves before the crypto market cap attempts to retake the $130.0B and $132.0B resistance levels. Overall, there could be short-term bearish moves in bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, ripple, LTC, bitcoin cash, XLM, TRX, and other altcoins before fresh increase.

Crypto Investor Who Shorted Ethereum at $700: Bottom is Far From Over, Here’s Why

It has been difficult not to get hopes up when crypto markets surge by over 20% in a couple of weeks. What should be remembered though is that the asset class is still in the midst of a bear market that has lasted for over a year.
One hedge fund partner, who has been known for shorting, still thinks there is further to go before markets hit the bottom.
Ethereum Momentum Slow, Devs Jumping Ship
Alex Sunnarborg, founding partner of Tetras Capital, a New York City based cryptocurrency hedge fund, spoke to Forbes recently about the firm’s investment strategies and where he sees markets going next.
The company is estimated to have $30 million in assets under management. It shorted Ethereum in May when it was trading at around $700, which Sunnarborg admits was the firm’s biggest win for 2018.
Total market cap – 6 months
When asked where the bottom is for Ether he replied that fundamentals do not have that much impact because the assets trade so much relative to each other. Basically, Ethereum will follow what Bitcoin does, a pattern which we have all seen play out over the past couple of years.
He added that the ConsenSys downsizing news was bad for ETH as it is an integral piece of the Ethereum ecosystem. “There’s this massive disconnect between how much money is still tied up in these projects and how much people actually use them,” he added.
Ethereum dApps have had minimal uptake and rival platforms EOS and Tron are now getting the lion’s share of users. This will cause developers to jump ship to other platforms which would cause a ‘drop in momentum and steam’.
Not Confident on Bitcoin Yet
When asked the crucial question on whether Bitcoin has bottomed yet Sunnarborg replied;
“I don’t think so, and I think calling that is very difficult. That’s part of the reason I’m really thankful that we’re in the position we are right now. We can hedge ourselves, remain more neutral and not have to call that exact price or timing bottom. I’m not confident right now.”
The interviewer asked about what the firm was bullish and supportive of. Aside from being a Bitcoin proponent, he added that Mimblewimble and Grin are interesting along with Zcash and Monero.
Obviously, not a fan of EOS and alluding to its centralization he added; “The one-year long, $4 billion-dollar ICO seems a little excessive to me. The whole governance system, with 21 block producers that can essentially make, vote, or deny everything, is a weird concept to me.”
Back to the bottoms, he said that bad news is needed to cause the landslide and this is likely to come from the US SEC. Once all the bad actors and dodgy ICOs get washed out, the volume and price manipulation is quashed, and a few big name products get launched then the only way is up.
Noted crypto analysts are also of the opinion that this rally won’t last.

This is a suckers rally which will lead to more downside $btc

The $25 billion rally has been enjoyed by many, however, to put things into perspective, markets are still half of what they were worth on August 1 when market cap was $270 billion and falling.

EOS and Litecoin [LTC] lead the charge as the cryptocurrency market continues to rise

The collective cryptocurrency market managed to hold on to the bulls as the recent upswing in prices decided to not subside. After adding nearly $10 billion to the global market cap in just under 24 hours, the market added another $3 billion the following day, spearheaded by the surging EOS [EOS] and Litecoin [LTC].
While the first massive uptrend was sparked by Binance Coin [BNB] and Stellar Lumens [XLM], EOS and Litecoin took charge the following day as the market reached $135 billion for the first time since January 10. The fourth and fifth coins respectively have been at loggerheads, constantly overtaking each other in pursuit for the coveted fourth spot which was occupied by Bitcoin Cash [BCH] for a long period of time.
EOS has amassed a 7.6 percent increase against the US dollar, the largest rise amongst the top-10. The coin was trading just under $3 for the better part of the past two weeks, prior to surging ahead at the beginning of the week. The coin began to rise on February 18, and at 11.00 UTC on the same day, the coin broke the $3-mark for the first time since mid-December.
EOS later shot up to its trading price of $3.85, at press time. The fourth-largest cryptocurrency in the market, at this point, is trading at its highest price for more than three months, a significant achievement considering the ongoing ‘crypto-winter’ that has hit the market.
In terms of the coin’s market cap, EOS broke the $3-billion mark at the beginning of the week. Since breaking the milestone, the coin has gone on to add $500 million and the current market cap of the coin stands at $3.51 billion, with a $400 million market cap lead over the trailing, but surging, Litecoin [LTC].
Exchange dominance of EOS trade volume is most noticeable on OKEx, which accounts for $215 million or 10.35 percent of the entire EOS trading volume via the trading pair EOS/USDT. The second spot was taken by Huobi Global and DigitFinex, which accounts for $107.38 million, or 5.16 percent and $104.93 million, or 5.04 percent of the trading volume respectively, on the same trading pairs i.e EOS/USDT.

Litecoin trails EOS both in the coin-ladder and in terms of the 24-hour price increase, despite a 6.8 percent incline. The coin was hovering below the $35-mark since the beginning of the month, following which it saw a massive rise on February 8, overtaking BCH and EOS in the process. In the first consideable rise, the price shot up by 36.08 percent to $45.44, and after briefly dropping to $41.46, the price broke the $50 ceiling on February 20 for the first time since mid-November. At press time, the coin was trading at $51.20, and is looking to sustain the rise.
Digital Silver has joined EOS in the “$3 Billion Dollar Club” breaking the said barrier at 1000 UTC on February 20. Litecoin had not crossed the $3 billion-dollar valuation since the BCH hardfork in mid-November. At press time, the coin had a market cap of $3.1 billion, leading the trailing Bitcoin Cash by just under $430 million.

Crypto Market Wrap: EOS Spikes 16% in 48 Hours as Digital Assets Regain Momentum

Crypto markets marching upwards again; EOS and Litecoin leading the charge, BNB cools off. EOS up 16% from $3.3 to $3.83 in 48 hours.
Market Wrap
Momentum is gaining once again on crypto markets following a little cooling off yesterday. Most cryptocurrencies are in the green at the moment and total market capitalization has topped $135 billion for the first time in six weeks.
Bitcoin hit resistance again at $4,000 twice in the past day but it has not fallen back and is holding there at the time of writing. It is currently up 1.3% from yesterday’s minor correction but has failed to break this crucial level. The next move for BTC is likely to be a big one.
Ethereum has regained momentum and has moved up a further 3% on the day to reach $148. ETH remains well supported and the next resistance level is at $150. The gap to XRP is almost $2 billion again as the Ripple token makes minimal progress today.
The top ten is green once again and EOS is the day’s leader with a gain of 8% taking it to $3.90. Litecoin has also had a very strong few hours with 7% added increasing its market cap over $3 billion and breaking through a crucial psychological resistance level of $50. Stellar has also shifted gear today with a 6% rise as it pulls away from Tron.
EOS Surges 16%, Source: TradingView
The top twenty is equally buoyant during Asian trading today with everything bar Binance Coin in the green. Maker is yet again the top performer in this section with another 5.5% added on the day. Most other coins here are making 2-3 percent as the rally pushes slowly higher.
REPO and Crypto.com’s MCO token are getting a dose of FOMO at the moment as they both have risen by 20%. There are no big dumps currently but Revain is currently the top one hundred’s worst performer losing almost 5% on the day.

Total crypto market capitalization is still moving up and has retained momentum. It is currently 2.2% higher on the day as it pushes through a six week high of $136 billion. Daily volume has fallen back below $30 billion though but it has maintained strong levels. Since last Thursday markets have made over 12% and hopes are that this will continue.

Crypto Market Could Rally Further: EOS, Bitcoin Cash, TRX, ADA Price Analysis

The total crypto market cap is preparing for more gains above the $132.5B resistance level.
EOS price gained more than 7% recently and broke the $3.80 and $3.85 resistances.
Bitcoin cash price is consolidating below the key $150 resistance level.
Tron (TRX) price moved back above the $0.0250 resistance, but there was no follow through.
Cardano (ADA) price is grinding higher and it could soon test the key $0.0500 resistance area.

The crypto market is primed for more gains, with bullish moves in bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). EOS, BCH, ripple, tron (TRX), ADA and other altcoins are likely to accelerate higher.
Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Bitcoin cash price remained well bid above the $142 and $145 support levels against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair tested the $150 resistance level recently and later declined. However, the $145 support acted as a solid buy zone and later the price bounced back.
The price needs to gain strength above the $148 and $150 resistance levels to move further higher in the coming sessions. In the mentioned case, the price could revisit the $160 resistance zone.
EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis
EOS price performed really well recently after it corrected lower from the $3.00 resistance. The price found support above the $2.70 support level and later bounced back. It is up more than 7% and moved above the $2.80 and $2.85 resistance levels. An immediate resistance is at $2.92, above which the price could test the $3.00 resistance zone in the near term. The key supports on the downside are $2.82 and $2.80.
Tron price moved to and fro between the $0.0240 and $0.0255 levels. TRX price is currently traded above the $0.0250 resistance, but it must break the $0.0255 resistance to gain strength. The next main resistance is at 0.0262 and $0.0265.
Cardano price remained well bid above the $0.0420 support area. ADA price recently broke the $0.0450 and $0.0465 resistance levels to set the pace for more gains. The current price action is positive and it seems like the price could continue to move higher towards the $0.0500 resistance area in the near term.

Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there is a solid uptrend in place above the $125.0B support area. The market recently corrected lower and tested the $127.00B level. Later, it bounced back above $130.0B and it seems like it could break the $131.0B and $132.5B resistance levels in the next few hours. If buyers gain strength, the market cap could surge towards the $135.0B and $140.0B levels. Therefore, there could be more upsides in bitcoin, ETH, XRP, tron, bitcoin cash, litecoin, EOS, stellar, IOTA and other altcoins.

Crypto Sphere Believes Galaxy S10, JPM Coin Behind Bitcoin Rally, But Is Really a Return to Mean

The crypto market lit up with green over the last 48 hours following a powerful rally led by Litecoin, Ethereum, and EOS, which also helped propel Bitcoin toward important psychological resistance at $4K. Should the first-ever cryptocurrency break through the resistance, a major blow will be dealt to bears and could signal that a bottom is already in.
Battered and beaten bulls are tirelessly trying to find correlations to news that may be driving the rally, however, the move is likely a return to mean following extremely oversold conditions.
Crypto Community Searches For News Correlations Behind Bitcoin Rally
Reading through various crypto community discussion groups, members are filtering through recent crypto news hoping to discover the reason behind Bitcoin’s sudden boom. Over at Reddit in both r/bitcoinmarkets and r/cryptocurrency the common speculation on what’s fueling the recent rally points to today’s reveal of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
Announcements from the tech world rarely cause any movement in crypto markets, however, Samsung’s rumored inclusion of a crypto wallet has enormous implications, potentially exposing crypto to millions and millions of the South Korean tech giant’s customer base.

Elsewhere, even Bloomberg is suggesting the recent rally is being driven by news. In a tweet, the media powerhouse claims Bitcoin is having a “delayed boost” thanks to the announcement of JPM Coin, the new “cryptocurrency” announced this week by banking beast JP Morgan this past week.

Bitcoin is getting a delayed boost from the announcement that JPMorgan has developed a digital coin to speed up payments between corporate customers https://t.co/L9eQ5YBxZ2 pic.twitter.com/mAvqXj8ZQe
— Bloomberg Crypto (@crypto) February 19, 2019

However, in recent weeks, the market has barely responded to news – good or bad. For example, the ongoing QuadrigaCX imbroglio that resulted in millions in crypto being lost due to the exchange founder’s passing, would have caused a massive sell-off had it occurred in mid-2018.
Bitcoin and Crypto Markets Return to Mean After Oversold Conditions
The reality in current crypto markets is that Bitcoin and its altcoins brethren are posting gains following sustained downward movements and extremely oversold conditions. Such oversold conditions on assets can cause markets to mean revert, according to prominent trader and Bitcoin.live panel member Peter Brandt.

Regarding RSI, Stochastic, MACD et al. Markets can remain overbought far longer than many bears have the ability to pay up for a losing short position. OB/OS measures good for trading range mkts. Severely OS mkts tend to mean revert.
— Peter Brandt (@PeterLBrandt) February 19, 2019

When any asset reaches extremely oversold or even overbought conditions, the market tends to correct and returns toward its mean. The scenario played out perfectly when Bitcoin’s parabolic advance was broken in late December 2017, and the inverse occurred after Bitcoin fell through support at $6K.

The powerful downward movement took Bitcoin and other crypto far below their mean, and the market is now correcting upward toward its mean value.

A commonly shared chart on bubble cycles put together by Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue of the Department of Global Studies and Geography at Hofstra University, demonstrates what is happening now during the “blow off phase.” The chart shows that an asset can crash so low, it’s below its mean value and eventually returns as faith is restored in the market.

Crypto Market Eyes Additional Gains: BNB, EOS, Bitcoin Cash, Tron (TRX) Analysis

The total crypto market cap traded towards the $132.5B level and later corrected lower.
EOS price traded above the $3.50 resistance and it is currently consolidating gains.
Binance Coin (BNB) rallied more than 10% and broke the $10.00 resistance area.
Bitcoin cash price is placed nicely above the $140 support, with a bullish bias.
Tron (TRX) price failed to stay above the $0.0250 support and later declined.

The crypto market started a downside correction, but it remains supported. Dips in bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance coin (BNB), BCH, ripple, EOS, TRX and ADA are likely to find buyers.
Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Bitcoin cash price gained traction recently and broke the $135 and $140 resistances against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair even traded above the $145 level and later started a downside correction. On the downside, the key supports are near $142 and $140, below which the price might test the $135 support.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $145 level, above which the next hurdle for buyers is at $148 and $150. In the short term, there could be range moves, but the price is likely to gain further above $145.
EOS, Tron (TRX) and BNB Price Analysis
EOS price gained a strong bullish momentum above the $3.00 resistance area. It broke the $3.25 and $3.50 resistance levels to register heavy gains. At the moment, the price is consolidating above the $3.50 support, with resistances near the $3.62 and $3.70 levels.
Tron price moved above the $0.0250 resistance level, but it failed to hold gains. TRX price topped below the $0.0255 resistance and later declined below the $0.0250 support. The price is down more than 2% and it seems like it could retest the $0.0245 support area in the near term.
Binance coin (BNB) rallied recently above the $9.50 and $10.00 resistance levels. BNB price gained more than 10% and even surpassed the $10.50 resistance. The next major hurdle for buyers is near the $11.00 level, above which the price might eye a test of the $12.00 level.

Looking at the total cryptocurrency market cap hourly chart, there was a strong upward move above the $120.0B and $125.0B resistance levels. The market cap even broke the $130.0B resistance level and tested the $132.5B level, where it faced resistance. Later, it started a downside correction and declined below $130.0B. However, there are many supports near $126.0B, $125.0B, and a bullish trend line on the same chart. Therefore, as long as the market cap is above $125.0B, dips in bitcoin, ETH, tron, litecoin, EOS, ripple, ADA, stellar, BNB, BCH, XMR and other altcoins remain supported in the coming sessions.

Crypto Market Cap at Critical Resistance, Is Altcoin Season Around The Corner?

The current crypto winter and bear market has been brutal for Bitcoin investors who are now underwater, but it’s been even worse for many altcoin holders.
Most of the thousands of altcoins on the market have fallen as much as 99% from their all-time high prices, have reached extremely oversold conditions, and are at the absolute bottom of the barrel sentiment-wise. However, according to one crypto analyst, altcoins are on the verge of breaking out of long-term downtrend resistance and an “altseason” may be around the corner.
Analyst: Altcoin Crypto Market Cap at Pivotal Resistance Point
Altcoins such as Ethereum and XRP have had a much further fall from their all-time high prices than their eldest sibling, Bitcoin. Bitcoin has fallen roughly 85% from its previous peak back in December 2017, while number 2 and number 3 cryptocurrencies Ethereum and XRP respectively have each fallen 90% from their high points.

The added sell pressure has caused sentiment around altcoins to be at extreme lows, but the tides may be turning soon, if critical resistance can be broken.
According to a chart shared by prominent crypto analyst GalaxyBTC, the altcoin market cap – an aggregate of the total crypto market cap minus BTC – is at pivotal overhead resistance that has served as such all the way since January of 2018.

If we manage to push trough this, its ON. #altmarketcap pic.twitter.com/aIl01WvlJ8
— Galaxy (@galaxybtc) February 18, 2019

The early signs of an “altseason” are already showing, with Ethereum, EOS, and BCH all posting 15-25% gains on the day, while Bitcoin rose just 8.5% by comparison. The rest of the altcoin market is a sea of green today, as a clear sentiment change is occurring in the crypto space.
Bitcoin Has Long to Go Before Downtrend is Broken, BTC Dominance to Suffer
GalaxyBTC also shared some thoughts around a pattern commonly found in cryptocurrency trading. The analyst discovered that oftentimes following a build-up of BTC dominance – a metric that weighs Bitcoin’s market cap against the rest of the crypto market – it breaks down, causing a spike in altcoin dominance also referred to as an “altseason.”

1. Build up $BTC domination 2. Breakdown 3. Altseason 4. Rinse and repeat.
Furthermore, looks like the weaker the dominance uptrend the longer the altseason and so far this one is the weakest.
Expecting dominance to fall under 30% and the longest altseason to date. #crypto pic.twitter.com/eabtk6rGG9
— Galaxy (@galaxybtc) February 18, 2019

The reason for this could be normal ebb and flow of capital to and from Bitcoin into altcoins, faith being restored by crypto market participants, or quite possibly due to the fact that most altcoins have broken through downtrend resistance, while Bitcoin hasn’t.

Finally, we need to acknowledge that the bear market has not been broken yet.
Here's the resistance line we've been tracking. As you can see, we're not even close to breaking it just yet. pic.twitter.com/tWX58rshnh
— Mati Greenspan (@MatiGreenspan) February 18, 2019

A chart shared by Senior Market Analyst for eToro Mati Greenspan shows that Bitcoin still has a long way to go before it brushes up against the downtrend resistance. The resistance dates back to January of 2018, after the first ever crypto’s parabolic advance was broken, kicking off the bear market that continues even today.

The total crypto market cap gained momentum and broke the $118.0B resistance level.
EOS price broke the $2.85 resistance and it is currently approaching the $3.00 resistance.

Cardano (ADA) price rallied and broke the $0.0400 and $0.0420 resistance levels.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis
Bitcoin cash price formed a decent support near the $120 level against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair started a fresh upward move and it recently broke the $124 and $125 resistance levels. The pair is now trading above the $128 level and it seems like it could soon test the $130 level.
Above $130, the next key resistance is near the $135 level, where sellers might appear. On the downside, the previous resistance near the $125 level may act as a support if there is a downside correction.
EOS, Tron (TRX) and ADA Price Analysis
EOS price traded with a lot of bullish moves in the past few days above the $2.55 resistance. The price recently broke the $2.80 and $2.85 resistance levels to move into a bullish zone. It seems like the price might continue to move higher above the $3.00 resistance. On the downside, an initial support is at $2.90, below which the price could test the $2.85 level.
Tron price settled below the $0.0255 support this past week, with a few bearish moves. TRX price is currently consolidating above the $0.0240 support, but it is facing a strong resistance near the $0.0250 and $0.0255 levels.
Cardano price is up more than 4% and it settled above the $0.0400 resistance level. ADA price recently broke the $0.0420 resistance, opening the doors for more gains. If buyers remain in action, there are chances of a push towards the $0.0450 resistance in the near term.

The market cap started a strong upward move and broke the $118.0B and $120.0B resistance levels. It traded close to the $124.0B level and it is currently consolidating gains. It seems like there could be a minor dip, but the $120.0B level is likely to act as a strong support. Therefore, if there is a downside correction, bitcoin, ETH, XRP, tron, bitcoin cash, litecoin, EOS, stellar, IOTA and other altcoins could find buyers.
