Elon and Amazon Give Ethereum The Nod, Why is ETH Still Bearish?

All attention has been focused on Bitcoin recently as it has led crypto markets off the bottom and back into bullish territory. Ethereum has been lack luster to say the least with very little movement in prices and certainly nothing to match other crypto assets. That could all change with an endorsement from Amazon which has recently launched a new blockchain tool through AWS.
Amazon: Ethereum Well Suited
The twitter crypto-sphere has been awash with comments lately following a couple of leading posts about Ethereum from multi-billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk. This simple one word tweet was re-tweeted over 9,000 times and had almost 5,000 responses;

Ethereum
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019

Elon may have been onto something as web commerce giant Amazon has also recently given Ethereum the thumbs up by endorsing it in a press release about a new blockchain service. The new tool available through Amazon Web Service will enable users to “create and manage scalable blockchain networks” via open blockchain networks such as Ethereum.
The Amazon Managed Blockchain (AMB) service was initially announced last year and made available for preview. The preview is now complete and the service is available for production use however it has been limited to a small region in the eastern part of the United States at the moment. According to Yahoo News, Amazon stated;
“Ethereum is well suited for highly distributed blockchain networks where transparency of data for all members is important,” before adding “customer loyalty blockchain network that allows any retailer in the network to independently verify a user’s activity across all members to redeem benefits”.
Initially the AMB service will be launched on Hyperledger Fabric from the Linux Foundation with ‘Ethereum in the works’. It lauds simplicity stating; “you can create your network in minutes. Once created, you can easily manage and maintain your blockchain network. You can manage certificates, invite new members, and scale out peer node capacity in order to process transactions more quickly.”
ETH Still Bearish
Ethereum is still stuck in a bearish channel and has not managed to make any progress over the past month. Since the initial crypto market surge at the beginning of April Ethereum has remained around $160, falling back after reaching a high of $185. The 13 percent slide over the month has confirmed this as a number of analysts have noted;

1/2 Seeing a major divergence between $BTC and $ETH over the past month. Bitcoin has formed a bull channel while #ETHUSD is trapped in a bear channel. #Bitcoin is 30% above winters resistance while ETH is threatening to fall below it's corrosponding level. pic.twitter.com/S6xsi3D5GS

Ethereum volume has halved since the beginning of April and is now around $5.5 billion. The three month chart is a little more positive though as Ethereum has climbed way above its low of around $100 back then. The dev team is unperturbed however and continues to soldier on as a new community portal gets launched and the buildup to Ethereum 2.0 Serenity gathers momentum.

Welcome to the beginning of a new https://t.co/6FlOganaog. Built by the community, for the community. https://t.co/ewAhHbrHaz

Ethereum will not be on the floor for long it seems as greater adoption from the likes of Amazon and a raft of solid technological improvements will propel the platform towards its intended purpose.

Binance CEO V/s Elon Musk – CZ Suggests Killer Cryptocurrency Name to Musk’s SpaceX project

Despite Elon Musk gave disclaimer as ‘Joke’ to his ‘one-word tweet ‘Ethereum’ the other day, Crypto community is still thinking Musk’s entry into crypto space.
As Coingape reported how ‘Vitalik Buterin’ quickly reacted to Musk’s JK of naming Ethereum in his tweet and continuing his so-called JK post by including yet another tweet. Beside Ethereum tweet, Musk shared yet another tweet, asking ‘what should be developed on Ethereum’.?
Musk’s tweet is, however, doesn’t contain any solid point to rely on his billion-dollar interest into the crypto world- on contrary, the CEO of the largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance offers a quite great amount of deal to Musk.
In early today, (on May 01), CZ took to Twitter and posted in a similar tone that Musk posted Ethereum. CZ in his tweet says ‘SpaceXcoin @elonmusk’.

Very quickly, he added yet another tweet, briefing the involvement of crypto if he considers it.
Space exploration shall be funded globally using #crypto. Investors shall have their names inked on the blockchain.
Although, Musk at the moment, haven’t responded anything, but the Crypto Twitter kept on engaging with their views and opinions. Consequent to this, one such Twitter user asked ‘on which blockchain would you say’ which is then responded by Binance’s official Trust wallet as ‘Binance Chain’, recently launched native blockchain by Binance exchange.
This is not the first time CZ addressed Musk in the matter of crypto and blockchain, earlier too, he responded to Musk’s bitcoin-related tweet and ask for Tesla-Bitcoin offer. Although Musk is the billionaire and a successful entrepreneur behind two of the world’s largest companies, he doesn’t really seem interesting in crypto – rather, he rarely rings a pumping bell by showing his short term interest in cryptocurrencies.
Do you think Musk should discuss more about SpaceXcoin with Binance CEO CZ.? Let us know in the comment below

Ethereum’s [ETH] Vitalik Buterin to Elon Musk: Programs that should be developed on Ethereum

Elon Musk, the face of Tesla and SpaceX, has always been a prominent figure in the cryptocurrency space. The founder of The Boring Company has publicly expressed his opinions on Bitcoin [BTC] and other cryptocurrencies in the market on several occasions. Musk also revealed that he held 0.25 BTC, which was sent by a friend, stating that Satoshi Nakamoto deserves a Nobel Prize, resulting in the entire Bitcoin community rejoicing over Musk joining the bandwagon.
Notably, Bitcoin was not the only cryptocurrency to grab Musk’s attention; digital currencies like Ethereum and Dogecoin were also on his list. Earlier today, the Tesla CEO was spotted commenting on the second-largest cryptocurrency and leading smart contract platform, Ethereum [ETH], on Twitter.
Musk’s initial Tweet stated,

Ethereum
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019

The tweet soon attracted the attention of a majority of the cryptocurrency space, including Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, who went on to invite Musk to Ethereum’s Devcon, which would be held in October 2019. Even Justin Sun, the Founder of Tron Foundation, went on to Tweet “Tron” and “BitTorrent” on the same thread.
Musk ignored Sun and replied to Buterin stating, “Stop giving away free ETH! “.
Nevertheless, this was followed by Musk asking Buterin, “What should be developed on Ethereum?”, resulting in Buterin listing five use-cases.
Buterin stated,
“My top picks (1): * A globally accessible financial system, including payments, store of value, also more advanced stuff like insurance http://hurricaneguard.io/  * Identity: “sign in with Facebook” -> “sign in with an ethereum account, no intermediaries”. Also web of trust…”

He further added,

(5)
* p2p marketplace for internet connections / incentivized mesh networks
* Identity, reputation and credit systems for those that currently have few resources (eg. refugees)
* Decentralized DNS alternatives (eg. https://t.co/aTRxfTlXpC)
— Vitalik Non-giver of Ether (@VitalikButerin) April 30, 2019

Musk has spoken about Ethereum [ETH] several times now. However, the very first topic was related to spam-bots on Twitter, which also led to the “Not giving away ETH” campaign on social media. Scammers used to mimic the social media handles of cryptocurrency influencers on different social media handles, including Twitter and Telegram.
This would be followed by them claiming to “giveaway ETH” or any other digital currencies, which would be completed after users sent a specific amount of crypto first to a specific address. Basically, the scammer would ask a user to send ETH to an address, claiming that he/she would send back more ETH, resulting in several members losing their funds.
On this, Elon Musk had stated,
“I want to know who is running the Etherium scambots! Mad skillz.”

Elon Musk Just Kidding with the ‘Ethereum’ Tweet; Crypto-Twitter Goes Hysteric Anyway

Elon Musk, one of the most successful entrepreneurs and brightest minds of the 21st century is looked up to for a lot of reasons. The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla needs no introduction almost everywhere in the world. He has 26.2 million followers on Twitter and more often than not Musk indulges in light-hearted banter with the Twitter community.
Crypto-Twitter (CT), on the other hand, is known for its hysterics. Any cryptocurrency related tweet be it allegations, opinions, or news invites an avalanche of tweets and it spreads like fire.
Elon Musk once again put this fact to test on early morning 30th April 2019. He just tweeted the name of one of the most popular cryptocurrencies, and CT went in a frenzy as expected. It was re-tweeted more than 3000 times in only 2 hours.

Ethereum
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019

However, he had also followed the Tweet with a reply saying:

jk
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder and lead figurehead of Ethereum was delighted by the joke, invited Elon to the Ethereum DevCon.
You should come to our Devcon in October 🙂
The Twitter thread grew longer with each passing minute, as Justin Sun came to shilling Tron and Bittorrent. A similar tweet was sent by Gabor Gurbacs, the CEO and Digital Asset Director at VanEck also sent a two-word reply shilling his favorite coin.

No. #Bitcoin
— Gabor Gurbacs (@gaborgurbacs) April 30, 2019

It is sort of building up as an inside joke between Elon and the Crypto-community because this isn’t the first time for Elon. Earlier Elon this year Elon had mentioned that Dogecoin was his favorite cryptocurrency. In the turn of events that followed, rather not surprisingly, the price of Dogecoin started gaining extreme momentum in the following days. Elon Musk, due to his entrepreneurial brilliance and being the founder of Paypal has also been occasionally dubbed as ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’
Nevertheless, the strong conviction and optimism of the Crypto-Twitter community have been unshaken in the face of negative market sentiments and criticism. Elon Musk has also been drawn towards it with a positive outlook.

Furthermore, the cryptocurrency fanatics are always wary of big movements in the market. Any positive or negative piece of news has a considerable impact on the price of the cryptocurrency almost instantly. This highlights the vulnerability of the markets, currently. However, it wasn’t witnessed on this occasion as the price of Ethereum is still below $160. Hence, no resistances have been tested yet.
Do you think that the markets are becoming stronger and stabler with time or vulnerability still exists? Please share your views with us.
