Crypto Market Wrap: IOTA Ignoring Pullback, Adds 13% on Payment App Addition

Crypto markets correcting again; IOTA, Ethereum Classic and Tezos moving, Ontology dumping.
Market Wrap
There has been some movement in crypto markets over the past 24 hours but unfortunately it has been in the downward direction. Red dominates the charts at the moment and total market capitalization has fallen back below $140 billion after reaching a monthly high yesterday.
Bitcoin managed to touch $4,100 yesterday but its stay there was extremely brief as a dump imminently followed. The plunge knocked $100 off the price of BTC in less than an hour but it has since recovered to $4,030. Volume remains over $10 billion and Bitcoin is still holding at resistance levels for now.
The minor correction has hit altcoins harder as usual, especially Ethereum which has dropped 2.5% overnight to fall back to $136. ETH has lost almost all gains made over the past seven days as it begins to weaken once again. XRP is not faring any better and has also lost 2% dropping back to $0.311.
All cryptos in the top ten are red during Asian trading today. Those dropping the most include Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin and Stellar with 4 percent declines. Tron also continues to weaken and is now back to tenth spot with a $1.5 billion market cap.
The top twenty has a few beacons of green as some altcoins continue to pump defying the market pullback. IOTA is one of them as it makes 13% on the day to reach $0.322 from an intraday low of $0.285. The momentum has been driven by payments App Zeux adding IOTA for crypto payments at all shops.

Payments App @Zeuxapp Adds IOTA For Crypto Payments at all Shops.@Zeuxapp is the @finTech that integrates all banking activities on one single app and will now support #IOTAtoken to pay at all shops via Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.https://t.co/gmUDiXTwuI#IOTA #Zeuxapp
— IOTA (@iotatoken) March 21, 2019

South Koreans are buying up MIOTA today as 30% of the daily volume, which has surged from $12 to $35 million, is being traded on Upbit in KRW.
Maker is up 2% and Ethereum Classic 3% but the other big mover in the top twenty at the time of writing is Tezos with an 8% pump to $0.733. Not having such a good day is Ontology dumping 10% after yesterday’s fomo driven pump.
FOMO: Ravencoin Still Going
Today’s top performer in the top one hundred is Ravencoin yet again. RVN has added a further 14% on the day as it reaches $0.047, its highest price for this year. The fomo without fundamentals is likely to result in a dump in the next couple of days. Aurora, Maximine Coin and Digibyte are all having a ten percent pump at the moment also.
Joining Ontology at the bottom of the top one hundred in terms of 24 hour performance is MOAC dumping 10%. Huobi Token and Kucoin Shares have both lost 7% on the day.
Total market cap 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com
Total crypto market capitalization has dropped its recent gain of $2 billion resulting in a 1.4% decline back to $139 billion. Bitcoin led the fall after failing again to break above $4,100. A more positive take is that markets haven’t dumped massively and are holding steady at this level for now with good volume. A sideways zigzag pattern can be seen over the week as resistance got hit and the pullback followed six times.

Crypto Market Wrap: Stellar Lifted on Coinbase Listing, Flips Binance Coin

Crypto markets still consolidating; Stellar makes a move up the chart, Kin cranking, the rest marginally down.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets are still consolidating as they have been for the past couple of days since the weekend pump. Altcoins are still making the most as Bitcoin stalls at resistance at $4,000 once again. Total crypto market capitalization has remained just above $140 billion and up almost $10 billion on the same time last week.
Bitcoin dropped back to $4,000 over the past 24 hours but did not fall below it and has gradually crept back up to $4,050 where it currently trades. Volume is over $9 billion and BTC appears to be poised to test its weekly high again, a move to $4,200 could spell a larger break to the upside.
Ethereum remains at $140 but has weakened over the past few days and cannot seem to gather momentum at the moment. ETH is still up on the week however and remains $1.5 billion clear of XRP in terms of market cap. The Ripple token has also remained flat over the past couple of days and is still trading at $0.312.
XLM chart 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com
At the time of writing the top ten is all in the red during today’s Asian trading session. That is all but on altcoin which is bucking the trend and climbing 4% on the day. Stellar Lumens has just been listed on Coinbase which has added to the momentum though it has not produced the epic spike seen in other listed cryptos such as ETC or BAT.

Stellar Lumens (XLM) support is launching at https://t.co/bCG11KveHS and in the iOS and Android apps within the next 15 minutes. You may need to update your app to properly buy, sell or convert XLM. We will update when XLM is fully live. https://t.co/YSIYNPO4JP
— Coinbase (@coinbase) March 18, 2019

The news has enabled XLM to flip Binance Coin and Tether to take seventh spot with a market cap of $2.2 billion at the time of writing. Stellar has made almost 20% this week climbing from below $0.10 to a high of $0.117 before pulling back a little. Volume has risen from $155 million to $257 million as Stellar climbs the charts.
All other crypto assets in the top ten are falling at the moment with Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash losing over 2.5% each. In the top twenty every altcoin is in the red, the biggest losers are Bitcoin SV, Dash and NEM but losses are only 2% or so. The rest are only marginally down on yesterday’s levels.
FOMO: Kin Cranking
Today’s top one hundred top performer is Kin which has pumped over 50%. The digital content payments ecosystem token is only worth two satoshis at the moment and the pump appears to be pure fomo, at least according to the Reddit stream.
Enjin Coin is also having a good day with a gain of 15% during Asian trading and Maximine Coin is close behind with 13% added on the day. There are no major dumps going on at the moment but those at the sticky end of the table include Digibyte and Bytecoin dropping 6% or so.
Total crypto market capitalization has remained around $140 billion where it was this time yesterday. Volume remains at $30 billion and markets have generally been range bound since their mini-pump on Saturday. If Bitcoin fails to break resistance again things could fall back pretty rapidly.

Crypto Market Wrap: BNB and BitTorrent Token (BTT) Defying Sunday Correction

Crypto markets correcting this Sunday; Bitcoin Cash, SV and Crypto.com dumping, BNB, BitTorrent Token and Tezos still up.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets have started to pull back following their $6 billion pump yesterday. Sunday’s action has been somewhat slower as total market capitalization drops back below $140 billion and a selloff starts as day traders take profits.
Bitcoin could not hold yesterday’s high of $4,080 and has fallen back a little. BTC still remains above $4,000 but only just, this heavy resistance zone has proven very difficult to overcome. At the time of writing BTC is trading at $4,020 and volume has dropped below $10 billion indicating that the rally is running out of steam.
Ethereum has also fallen back below $140 after hitting a three week high of $145 yesterday. The 3.4% decline could accelerate losses back to the low $130 area where ETH traded for most of last week. XRP is also falling back but not as severely as Ethereum, closing the market cap gap up again.
The top ten is pretty much all in the red during the day’s Asian trading session. That is all except Binance Coin which is acting like a stablecoin again as traders drop their altcoins and convert back into BNB or USDT. BNB has currently bucked the trend and has made 4.5% today to reach $15.80 following lackluster performance yesterday. Bitcoin Cash is dropping the most after its huge pump yesterday as BCH falls 5% back to $150. The rest are dropping a couple of percent as the market corrects.
The top twenty is also showing losses across the board at the moment with Bitcoin SV the biggest loser with 5% shed. The rest are cooling off and dropping a percent or two.
FOMO: BitTorrent Token Testing Highs
There are no major pumps going on at the moment but the only altcoin in double digit gains is BTT which has climbed 12% on the day. The pump which started a couple of hours ago resulted in a volume jump of five times from $12 million to $64 million, most of which traded on Binance. The early access program has just been launched and more airdrops are approaching which could be driving momentum;

The Early Access Program is live! A randomized selection of our email list will receive an invitation to see the first build of BitTorrent Speed. Sign up with our email so you can be eligible for our next Early Access Test. $BTT #BTT https://t.co/6khNwfxYhR pic.twitter.com/oYQvky7TM8
— BitTorrent Inc. (@BitTorrent) March 16, 2019

Tezos is also one of the top one hundred’s top performers at the time of writing. XTZ pumped over 8% after the rally yesterday and has maintained most of those gains. The move has taken Tezos to a two month high of $0.50, the token has since pulled back marginally but is still riding high this year. ABBC Coin is also having another pump today with a similar move of 7%.
Massive profit taking is going on with Crypto.com’s CRO token as it dumps 25% today. Following a 500% pump in less than a week the inevitable has started and the dump begins, where it will stop remains to be seen. Aurora is also suffering today with over 8% lost.

Total crypto market capitalization has cooled off and dropped back below $140 billion, losing a couple of percent from Saturday’s rally. Volume is back to $30 million and markets could see further losses if day traders continue to sell off their altcoins.

Why is Bitcoin Cash Beating Big Brother in Today’s $6 Billion Crypto Market Pump?

Crypto markets have jumped $6 billion; Bitcoin Cash surging, Crypto.com up 500% this week, Ethereum and Litecoin doing well.
Market Wrap
The momentum has continued on crypto markets as we begin the weekend. The bulls have awoken and driven total market capitalization over $140 billion as altcoins drive the recovery and Bitcoin reaches critical resistance levels.
Bitcoin has slowly edged up to $3,960 over the past 24 hours before shifting gear a few hours ago to break $4,000 and hit an intraday high of $4,070 where it currently trades. The 3.5% gain for BTC has pulled the rest of the market higher as altcoins make bigger moves. Bitcoin dominance is still dropping and has now fallen to a new 2019 low of 50.7%.
Ethereum has made a solid 7% on the day as it moves up towards $145. The three week high for ETH has increase its market cap over $15 billion again and widened the gap to XRP in third to almost $2 billion. The Ripple token has been weak again during this rally as it has only managed just below 3% to reach $0.320.
The top ten is all solid green during today’s Asian trading session. Bitcoin Cash has made an epic surge of 17.5% on the day as it jumps to $160 for the first time since early January. The relatively obscure Korean exchange Lbank is taking over a quarter of the BCH volume at the moment. Litecoin is also performing well as it breaks $60 with an 9% surge on the day. EOS, Stellar and Tron have made 4-5 percent and Binance Coin has not moved during this run.

More green has spread across the top twenty but gains there are not as great. Top performers at the time of writing include Bitcoin SV and Maker adding 7% each, closely followed by Cardano, NEO and Ontology all gaining over 5% at the moment.
FOMO: Crypto.com Chain Keeps Killing It
For the third day running Crypto.com’s CRO token is the top performing altcoin in the top one hundred. It has surged a further 40% since this time yesterday to remain over $0.10. Daily volume has pumped tenfold from $5 to over $55 million with the majority being traded on the Korean Upbit exchange. The company’s PAY platform was launched yesterday and Blockfolio has just added CRO to its signals service. Yesterday CRO hit an all-time high of $0.122, up an astounding 500% in less than a week.
Aside from BCH other altcoins getting pumped at the moment are Holo up 17% and Kucoin Shares jumping 13% on the day. The only altcoin with a double digit dump in the top one hundred at the moment is Wanchain sliding over 10%, Project PAI is second worst with a loss of over 6% at the time of writing.
Total market cap 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com
Total crypto market capitalization has gained 4.5% on the day to reach $141 billion. The $6 billion cash injection has lifted markets to a three week high and altcoins are currently driving momentum as Bitcoin struggles to breach resistance at $4,000.

Crypto Market Wrap: Bitcoin Dominance Falls to 2019 Low, Has Altcoin Season Begun?

Crypto markets being driven by altcoins; Cardano, NEM and CRO Cranking, Bitcoin dominance diminishing.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets are still consolidating as we round off another week. Volume has crept up a little and a slow uptrend has formed over the past couple of days as major crypto assets hit resistance levels. Total market capitalization has made it over $135 billion for the past few hours.
Bitcoin has moved very little over the past 24 hours. BTC hit an intraday high of $3,945 before instantly dumping to $3,900 then slowly building back up to $3,920 where it currently trades. Volume is back over $10 billion and key technical indicators such as MACD and hourly RSI are in the bullish zone.
Ethereum, which has been slowly sliding back all week, has made a percent on the day taking it to $135. The move has taken ETH through the weekly down trend line so further momentum could follow, especially if Bitcoin turns bullish. XRP has made a minor loss on the day dropping back to $0.311.
The top ten is pretty mixed at the time of writing but gains are no more than a percent or so for those in the green. Stellar, which recently flipped Tether for eighth spot, has dumped 4% on the day dropping market cap back to $2 billion. XLM is about to drop back down the charts as it falls to $0.105.
There is a lot more green in the top twenty during today’s Asian trading session. Larger gains have been made by Cardano as ADA climbs 5.5% to $0.049. NEM is also having a big pump with around 9% added on the day to take the token to $0.050. A possible link between NEM Malaysia and Air Asia could be driving the fomo.

During the panel discussion, #NEM Malaysia Investments and Strategy Director Jasmine Ng said while investments to explore blockchain’s implementation in businesses could be costly, she said there is a huge potential upside. Read the full story herehttps://t.co/b6TzgGsiGu

IOTA, NEO and Ethereum Classic have all made over 3% in the past 24 hours as ‘altseason’ gathers momentum.
FOMO: Crypto.com Chain Still Pumping
Crypto.com Chain has continued its epic surge adding another 50% as it nears the top twenty. Over the past week CRO has made an epic 900% pumping from $0.013 to $0.092. Today’s surge has been driving by a listing on Upbit;

Also having a good run today is Lisk and Digitex Futures, both pumping 17% on the day. Crypto.com’s other token, MCO is also up 17% at the moment. REPO is well in the red right now and is the top one hundred’s worst performing altcoin with a dump of 10%, Electroneum is not far behind losing 8% today.

Total market capitalization has remained over $135 billion adding a billion dollars since the same time yesterday.

Crypto Market Wrap: Will $3 Billion Recovery Lead Markets Higher?

Crypto markets recover from correction; Litecoin, BNB, Stellar and Dash going strong.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets have bounced back from the dip yesterday to the same level they traded at for the past few days. The minor dump dropped markets back to $130 billion but they have since recovered back to resistance levels again.
Bitcoin is having a tough time breaking through heavy resistance at $4,000. Two intraday highs of $3,920 were reached but BTC was unable to push past this level and has remained at just over $3,900. Volume has fallen back below $10 billion but BTC remains range bound at the moment.
Ethereum has been sliding all week, it is up on yesterday’s prices but down in general. Currently trading at $133 ETH is still ahead of Ripple’s XRP by $1.2 billion. XRP has shown similar declines and is back to $0.309.
The top ten is mostly in the green during today’s Asian trading session. Three altcoins are making most of the gains though. Litecoin has added 5% to reach $57 and increase its lead over EOS in fifth. Binance Coin is motoring yet again with a 6.5% gain to $15.4 as it chases down Bitcoin Cash in sixth spot. Stellar is the third altcoin gaining today with a 6% push to $0.104 as it is poised to flip Tether when XLM reaches $2 billion market cap.
The top twenty is all green at the moment and Dash is moving the most with a daily gain of over 11%. According to studies Dash has been one of the top three performers since initial exchange listing. Today it has topped $92 and is the best performer in the top twenty.

Monero, IOTA, NEM and Zcash have also recovered 5 to 6 percent since yesterday’s dip. VeChain also needs a mention as it is pumping 17% at the time of writing.
FOMO: Crypto.com Crushing It
Today’s epic pump is Crypto.com’s CRO token which has surged over 100% on the day and is the top one hundred’s top altcoin. The payments platform token has just been listed on Indonesia’s top exchange, Indodax which has driven the spike.
Komodo is also having a strong rally with a 33% surge at the time of writing. Maximine Coin has just entered the top one hundred with a 32% spike today and Zcoin is not far behind gaining 25% on the day. At the red end of the table is ABBC Coin, getting beat up and dumping 14% today. Theta, which has pumped recently is dumping again now with a similar loss.

Total crypto market capitalization has returned to $134 billion, adding $3 billion since Tuesday’s minor correction. The 2.3% gain has returned markets to their consolidation channel where they have spent the best part of last week. Daily volume is still at $30 billion and Bitcoin’s dominance continues to slowly decline as altcoins are driving markets at the moment.

Crypto Market Wrap: What Big Announcement Has Boosted Stellar?

Crypto markets inching slowly higher; Stellar is moving up, Cardano and NEM not far behind.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets are slowly inching higher over the weekend indicating a big move could be bubbling up. Most of the major coins have not done much but larger swings by one or two has lifted total market cap slightly. It is currently approaching $135 billion and there is more green than red on the boards this Sunday morning.
Bitcoin made it to an intraday high of $3,985 which is the highest it has been for two weeks. BTC has since pulled back to $3,950 but it has remained over $3,900 for the past 24 hours and added one percent on the day. The next move is a break above $4,000 which could come in the next few hours.
Ethereum has made a little back to reach $137 again but gains are marginal and ETH has done very little for the past few days. XRP is in the same situation and the gap between the two remains the same as the Ripple tokens trades sideways at $0.312.
The top ten is mostly in the green during today’s Asian trading session. One altcoin surging above the rest at the time of writing is Stellar which has made 7% on the day. XLM has reached $0.094 almost equaling its monthly high. Stellar has been one of the weaker altcoins over the past few months getting surpassed by its brethren in terms of market cap. The community is expecting a big announcement at the upcoming Money 20/20 fintech event which could be driving momentum. Bitcoin Cash is the only other altcoin with a decent gain as it makes almost 3%, the rest are a fraction of a percent off yesterday’s prices.
There are a couple of movers in the top twenty at the time of writing, namely Cardano and NEM. ADA has added 5% on the day allowing it to flip Bitcoin SV and take eleventh spot and NEM has made 7.5%. The rest are pretty immobile with Maker and Ontology slipping back slightly.
FOMO: Cosmo Coin Climbing
Today’s big pump is Cosmo Coin which was recently added to the supported cryptos on Samsung’s new Galaxy S10. The Korean cosmetics based token has surged 46% on the day as it enters the top one hundred. The Cosmee service has been enabled on the Galaxy wallet which has generated the pump for COSM;

Crypto Market Wrap: Quick Recovery From $3 Billion Dump, Chance For Further Gains?

Crypto markets recover from a mini dump; Stellar and Cardano holding up, BSV and Maker sliding, Kyber Network surging.
Market Wrap
As we enter the weekend crypto markets are still consolidating but have recovered from a $3 billion dump a few hours ago. The majors have been largely motionless over the past 24 hours and total market capitalization is still holding above $130 billion. The lack of momentum could signal another big dump around the corner but the quick recovery is promising.
Bitcoin has hit $3,950 twice over the past day but the second move resulted in an instant dump back to $3,875. This resistance wall is proving very hard to overcome for BTC. In the past couple of hours it has managed to regain some steam to get it back over $3,900 but only just.
Ethereum continues to weaken and has dropped to $135, its lowest level since Tuesday. A rally was looking promising before markets followed Bitcoin’s bounce off resistance again. ETH has maintained its lead above XRP which has also declined a further 1.5% on the day.
The top ten is all red during Asian trading today aside from Stellar which has made almost 1.8% on the day taking XLM to $0.087. Litecoin has also posted a marginal gain as it reaches $57 and extends its lead over EOS which has lost over 2%. Tron is down 2.5% at the moment as its market cap continues to dwindle.
Altcoins in the top twenty are equally mixed with marginal movements at the time of writing. Cardano is still in the green but only just, the rest are flat or falling. Bitcoin SV, Maker, and Ethereum Classic have taken the biggest slides with losses of over 3% a piece at the moment.
FOMO: Kyber Network Cranking
Today’s big pump in the top one hundred is Kyber Network which has surged 75% as volume increases tenfold. Binance is getting a third of the global trade volume but South Koreans are also buying it up in KRW on Upbit and Bithumb at the moment with a combined 50%. It appears that a coin burn, roadmap update, and KyberDAO Voting Experiment has driven the fomo for KNC;

Project PAI is also on the fomo train with a 60% pump today as the alpha version of their PAIYO app gets launched. Enjin Coin is also going strong still adding 30% to reach $0.20.
At the messy end of the top one hundred altcoins are Nexo and Chainlink dropping 7% each. There are no major dumps occurring right now as most coins are still range bound.
Total market cap 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com
Total market capitalization is still at $133 billion where it was this time yesterday. Markets are starting to recover from a $3 billion dump a few hours ago and daily volume has increased again to $34 billion. Crypto markets are only 2.3% higher than they were this time last Saturday but gains on the month are still an impressive 10%.

Crypto Market Wrap: Could Cooling Off Lead to a Weekend Dump?

Crypto markets cooling as we end the week; EOS drops to fifth, IOTA and NEO still buoyant, Crypto.com surges.
Market Wrap
There have been no further gains on crypto markets over the past 24 hours and they appear to be starting a pullback as we round out the week. Total market capitalization has remained over $130 billion but red is starting to infiltrate the charts indicating that this run at least could be over for now.
Bitcoin hit $3,940 again but that was as high as it got and heavy resistance forced it back down again. Generally there has been very little movement in BTC prices over the past day and it has dropped back a little to $3,915 where it currently trades.
Ethereum has also started to break down over the past day as it drops almost 2% back to $137. ETH prices are back to where they were this time last Friday after a Monday dump to below $130. XRP has been even weaker as the market cap gap expands again to $1.4 billion. The Ripple token as dropped another 1.5% taking it back to $0.314.
Every crypto asset in the top ten is red during today’s Asian trading session. EOS, Bitcoin Cash and Tron are dropping the most at almost 3% each. Litecoin has retaken fourth spot as it remains relatively stable on the day, however the gap between LTC and EOS is only $50 million so a reflippening could occur soon.
There are a couple of beacons of green in the top twenty at the time of writing. IOTA is making a rare move upwards with almost 3% added and Bitcoin SV and NEO are close behind with a 2% gain on the day. Ontology is still bullish with a 5% climb today but the rest are falling back marginally.
FOMO: Crypto.com Chain Climbing
CRO is getting a big pump today as it surges 44% to $0.020. Daily volume has over doubled to $600 million as the new Chain token gathers momentum with crypto powered Visa cards. The firm has just hired Rovio Executive, Kasim Zorlu, to the leadership team as SVP Head of Growth to drive customer acquisition.
Enjin Coin is also spiking at the moment with 40% on the day as the gaming platform continues to expand. Aurora is not far behind with a 32% fomo pump. There are no double digit dumps going on at the moment in the top one hundred but ABBC Coin is cooling off after its epic surge as it drops 8%.
Total market cap 24 hours. Coinmarketcap.com
Total crypto market capitalization has remained the same as these low cap coins do not really impact the market as a whole. A slight decline has dropped cap back to $133 billion but daily volume has remained high at $30 billion. Could this cooling lead to another dump over the weekend? Resistance remains strong so it is very possible.

Crypto Market Wrap: Litecoin Lifted as Volume Hits Yearly High of Over $2 Billion

Crypto markets continue upwards; Binance Coin and Litecoin on a rip, ABBC Coin surges out of nowhere.
Market Wrap
Crypto markets have continued their upward momentum today as further gains are added. The majority of the majors are in the green and total market capitalization is pushing north of $130 billion. There is still strong resistance ahead though so how far markets can climb this time remains to be seen.
Bitcoin surpassed $3,900 a couple of hours ago and hit an intraday high of $3,940. This could not be sustained however and BTC immediately fell back a little. It is still up over a percent on the day though volume has tailed off a little. Failure to break through resistance at this level will result in a pullback.
Ethereum has made it to $140 again but still failed to make further gains. ETH is currently up a couple of percent on the day and is hovering just below $140. XRP has made slightly less and has reached $0.317; compared to the rest of the altcoins Ripple’s token has remained weak for the past month or so.
The top ten is mostly green for the third day in a row as altcoins continue to gain during the day’s Asian trading session. Binance Coin is absolutely murdering it as it reaches a ten month high and tops $15. BNB has now also flipped Tether with a market cap of over $2 billion for the first time in over a year.
Litecoin price 7 days. Coinmarketcap.com
Also on a pump is Litecoin which has surged another 10% taking it to $58 before a slight pull back. This is the highest LTC has been for five months as volume surges to a yearly high of over $2 billion. Over the past 7 days Litecoin has surged 24%, it is about to flip EOS for fourth place and may have already done so by the time you read this. The momentum has come from the major release of Litecoin Core v0.17.1 RC1.
The big mover in the top twenty at the moment is Ontology which has flipped Zcash to enter this section. ONT has added a further 7% on the day taking it to just under a dollar. Monero and Ethereum Classic have made 3% each but the rest have not done much over the past 24 hours.
FOMO: ABBC Coin on a Rip
Again the relatively obscure ABBC Coin has surged by 78% today propelling it up the market cap charts to 24th, ahead of VeChain and Dogecoin. The epic pump has taken ABBC to $0.60 as this relatively obscure altcoin has surged over 800% in the past couple of weeks.
Also getting a good dose of fomo today is Aurora pumping 27% followed by Ravencoin up 22%. The only double digit dump in the top one hundred is Quant dropping 11% on the day, Veritaseum is not far behind with an 8% slide.
Total crypto market capitalization has grown by 2.3% since yesterday. Another $3 billion flowing in has taken markets up to $134 billion. Bitcoin dominance has slid below 52% largely at the expense of LTC and BNB. Failure to break resistance at $4k for BTC will result in the rest of the market falling back again.

EOS and Litecoin Leading as $6 Billion Pumps Back Into Crypto Markets

Crypto markets rallying again; EOS and Litecoin on a charge, Bitcoin SV and IOTA still stuck.
Market Wrap
Another small rally initiated yesterday adding a further $6 billion to crypto markets and pushing total market capitalization back over $130 billion once again. An anomalous ‘flash crash’ can be seen in the charts for total market cap a few hours ago but it appears to be a glitch.
Bitcoin bounced from $3,770 to $3,900 yesterday but again failed to break resistance here. BTC has since fallen back to $3,880 which marks a 3% gain on the day. Volume has picked up and is now back over $10 billion again. Only when this wall of resistance can be overcome will Bitcoin and markets climb further.
Ethereum is having a solid run today as it pumped over 7% to reach $140 before pulling back slightly. The Swiss exchange ETP launch has driven momentum for ETH which has recovered all losses over the past week. Ethereum has extended its lead over XRP in third to $1.4 billion as the Ripple token only managed to gain 3% today.
The two clear leaders in the top ten at the time of writing are EOS and Litecoin. EOS jumped from $3.30 to a high of $3.84 before pulling back to $3.70 marking a 12% gain over 24 hours. Volume jumped to $2.3 billion and OKEx is the leading exchange for EOS trade. Litecoin has done even better with a surge of 13% from $46.60 to smash through the $50 barrier and reach an intraday high of $54 before dropping back slightly. LTC volume is also over $2 billion at the moment as it closes the gap on EOS in fourth to $150 million. Binance Coin as usual continues its solid performance adding a further 7% on the day to reach $13.50.
The top twenty is all green during the Asian trading session today. The top performer in this section is Maker pumping 9% to $680. Cardano and NEO have also done well out of this market spurt by gaining 5% each. Ontology needs a mention as it is just outside the top twenty, ONT has surged 12.5% on the day and is about to flip Zcash. Bitcoin SV and IOTA have not moved at all over the past day.
FOMO: Enjin Coin Revving Up
Today’s top one hundred top performer is Enjin Coin which has pumped 21% on the day taking the gaming token close to $0.10. Enjin Blockchain SDK coming to Unity Asset Store next week appears to be driving momentum;

It's official: The Blockchain SDK is coming to the Unity @AssetStore on March 14!
In just 9 days, 4.5 million @unity3d developers will be able to easily create & integrate ERC-1155 #Ethereum blockchain assets into games for over 25 mass market platforms.#unitydev #unity3d pic.twitter.com/28JZaWf6z5

Bitcoin Gold is also getting a pump with 20% added over the past 24 hours taking it to $12.60. Nexo and Quant are not far behind with gains of 15% each. There are no double digit dumps at the moment but the worst performing altcoins in the top one hundred include Loom Network and Electroneum dropping 5% a piece.

Total crypto market capitalization has surged by $6 billion to $132 billion. The 4.8% gain has recovered all losses over the past week as volumes surge to $34 billion. Until key resistance levels can be broken markets are likely to remain around this range bound channel.

Crypto Market Wrap: Monday Starts With Another Dump in $4 Billion Slide

Crypto markets have just started to slide; Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, EOS and IOTA getting hurt, Ravencoin flying high.
Market Wrap
It looks like a Monday morning crypto market dump has just been ignited. All major cryptocurrencies are breaking down at the moment and heading deeper into the red. Following a week of consolidation and failure to break through resistance this has been expected. Total market capitalization has dumped $4 billion and is heading towards $125 billion at the time of writing.
Bitcoin has spent most of the past 24 hours floating around the $3,850 level; it hasn’t even attempted to test $3,900 resistance again. A couple of hours ago things started to break down and BTC plunged to below $3,800, it is still falling at the time of writing, down 2.4% on the day.
Naturally the digital lemmings have all followed suit, Ethereum no exception. With a 5% slide ETH has dropped back below $130 and is still heading south. Market cap is down to $13.5 billion as the gap to XRP closes with the Ripple token only falling 3% in the rout.
A sea of deepening red has enveloped the top ten during Asian trading today as coins are offloaded. EOS and Bitcoin Cash are taking the brunt of things dumping 6% at the time of writing. Litecoin and Tron not far behind with losses over 4% as market caps erode.
The top twenty is all falling off the cliff this morning leaving no survivors. Cardano and IOTA falling fastest right now with 6% losses, and Bitcoin SV, Dash and Zcash are closing up with 5% falls.
Ravencoin Flying High
All of today’s FOMO is going to Ravencoin which is still up 30% on the same time yesterday. The altcoin has reached a three month high as it continues to spike. RVN is a token based on an asset, security and stock tokenization platform that offers dividend payouts. Network growth and a Bittrex listing is keeping Ravencoin flying while markets dump again.

RVN is available on @BittrexExchange, one of the earliest supporters of this project!
As with all exchange listings, no fee was paid.Raven is decentralized and has no funds, no offices, no leadership, no executives, no CEO & no one authorized to sign anything.
Thanks Bittrex!

Also still holding up at the moment is MOAC which has a green 9% today. Double digit dumps are going on at THETA, Komodo, and Aelf right now but that list is likely to grow until markets find a new floor.
Two hours ago crypto markets dumped $4 billion falling to $126 billion at the time of writing. It is the largest movement for over a week but not one that has come as a surprise. A lot of indecision and consolidation always ends with a breakout and many had predicted that it would be on the downside.

Bitcoin has failed to break through resistance several times over the past week and yet again has pulled the rest of its brethren into the red today. At the moment things are still falling so we will have to wait and see where the digital dust will settle this time.

Crypto Market Wrap: The Tedium Continues, When Can We Expect a Breakout?

Crypto markets sleeping on Sunday; Zero movement on the majors, Litecoin getting a lift, Binance Coin still buoyant.
Market Wrap
The crypto market tedium continues as the weekend rolls into Sunday. There has been no movement whatsoever for most cryptocurrencies over the past 24 hours and pretty much the past seven days. Total market capitalization is still cemented at $130 billion.
Bitcoin hasn’t even made it to its resistance at $3,900 which could be a sign that steam is running out and a further dump is imminent. BTC continues to consolidate between $3,830 and $3,870 but daily volume has remained stable at $7.5 billion.
Ethereum continues to slowly weaken losing a little more every day. ETH is now down to $135, marginally lower than yesterday’s levels. Over the past week it has mirrored Bitcoin’s actions and remained in a sideways channel. XRP also slowly slides lower and is currently priced at $0.316.
Litecoin is the only crypto in the top ten doing anything during today’s rather lethargic Asian trading session. LTC has added 2.7% and has the third largest volume of all cryptos right now. It has managed to get back close to $50 and is closing the gap to EOS which hasn’t moved at all over the past few days.
Binance Coin is still climbing with another percent today taking BNB over $11.50. The move has enabled it to flip both Stellar and Tron and hold eighth spot. Stellar has dropped the most in the top ten with a slide of 2.4% on the day.
Nothing is going on in the top twenty either. NEO has dropped the most at just over 2% and Dash has added one percent, the rest are static.
Digitex Futures Tops the Charts
There are no major fomo pumps occurring at the moment but Digitex Futures is currently the top one hundred’s top performer with a pump of 11% at the time of writing. The run up to the public launch of the exchange appears to be driving momentum at the moment as DGTX has made 40% over the past week.

The #DigitexTreasury #TokenSale starts today! A fast & easy way to buy #DGTX before public launch 30th April. We also have some exciting news about our software development partners. Stay tuned for a special live AMA w/ Keith Wareing this Monday 3:30 CET https://t.co/FTgYK2HPBg

Enjin Coin is also having a good Sunday run with a pump of 8% on the day and Aurora is not far behind adding 7%. There are no major dumps going on at the moment but the worst performing altcoins in the top one hundred at the moment are Quant and ABBC Coin dropping 8% a piece.

Total market capitalization is stuck at $130 billion and has not budged since last Sunday’s big dump. The chart is a flat line at the moment and the consolidation continues as we round out the week. A big move could be imminent and all signs at the moment are bearish as crypto assets still lull around their lowest levels for over a year.

Crypto Market Wrap: BNB Flippening as Binance Coin Jumps Tron, Stellar Next

Crypto markets are still stagnant on Saturday; Zero movement on the majors, Binance Coin still rolling, Litecoin waking up.
Market Wrap
As we begin the weekend crypto markets are looking a little more buoyant but movement is still thin on the ground. A couple of the altcoins are making good progress which has kept total market capitalization above $130 billion for the time being.
Bitcoin, which has been pretty inactive all week, yet again touched resistance at $3,900 before pulling back. The movement is instant and back to its support level at $3,860 where it has traded for the past few days. Only when BTC can break above $3,900 will there be a bigger market wide movement.
Ethereum has been a flat line below $140 all week. ETH has started to weaken however and could quickly fall back to support in the low $130s before going anywhere else. XRP has remained steady over the past 24 hours and the gap between the two is now back to just over $1 billion.

The major movement in the top ten is Binance Coin yet again. During the day’s Asian trading session BNB has surged almost 10% from $10.8 to $11.8. This has enabled it to briefly flip both Tron and Stellar and land in eighth spot temporarily. At the time of writing BNB and XLM market caps are very close at $1.63 billion.
Tron has dumped another 4% on the day as it slips down to tenth spot. Over the past month TRX was the only altcoin in the top twenty to register a loss. Litecoin is also making gains today as a further 3% takes LTC to $48. The rest in this section are pretty immobile.
IOTA is the only altcoin making a minor move in the top twenty at the moment. The 2% gain has taken its price to $0.294. Everything else is virtually the same price as it was this time yesterday.
Ravencoin in Fomotown
Today’s fomo pump is going on at Ravencoin right now as a 26% surge makes it the top one hundred’s top performer. Binance is currently getting 40% of the trade as the Bitcoin forked RVN token spikes. There doesn’t be much driving it fundamentally so a dump is likely to follow.
Also performing well at the moment is Power Ledger. Tokens for the blockchain based energy sharing platform have jumped 14% to over $0.10 as volume surges to $5 million. The company has made big inroads in Australia and Japan and POWR is a fundamentally strong token so further long term gains are likely.
The messy end of the top one hundred table is very predictable today. The big pump of the past few days, ABBC Coin, is finally dumping down with 12% loss making it the only altcoin to drop double digits right now. Steem is also losing recent gains and falling back 8% on the day.
Total crypto market capitalization is exactly where it was this time yesterday, and the day before, $130 billion. A mini $2 billion pump as Bitcoin hit $3,900 again was rapidly quashed indicating that the bulls are still sleeping. Since the same time last weekend crypto markets have shrunk by 3%.

Crypto Market Wrap: Binance Coin Defies Markets With 10% Surge

Crypto markets are still consolidating this Friday; No movement on the majors but Binance Coin is bullish.
Market Wrap
The lethargy continues on crypto markets as we end another week. Nothing has moved since Sunday’s big dump and total market cap has remained at $130 billion. The consolidation continues for another day.
Bitcoin hit an intraday high of $3,900 but instantly bounced back off of it signaling major resistance there. BTC pulled back to $3,860 once again where it has been for the past few days. Daily volume is around $8 billion which is where it has been for the best part of the week.
The Ethereum hard fork has come and gone and ETH prices have not even blipped. The Constantinople and St. Petersburg updates went live on the main network at block 7,280,000, in accordance with previously released schedule. But ETH is still stuck at $137 where it has been since Monday.
XRP has had no boost whatsoever from a long awaited Coinbase listing. The exchange added that full support for the Ripple token will be made available on both the Android and iOS Coinbase apps. At the time of writing XRP was trading around a percent higher at $0.317.

There is only one altcoin surging in the top ten during today’s Asian trading session. Binance Coin yet again is defying market action by pumping 10.5% on the day.  BNB is now back to pre-dump levels at $11 as the exchange backed token increases its market cap to $1.5 billion. It is now just $45 million away from Tron in ninth spot.
Nothing else has happened with any of the other altcoins in the top ten. The top twenty has a little more movement but it is mostly of the red type at the moment. Bitcoin SV has lost the most at 2.8% and Ethereum Classic and NEM are not far behind losing over 1.5% each. Dash and Maker are the only two cryptos in the green in this section with gains of a percent or two.
ABBC Coin Off The Chart
Today’s ludicrous fomo pump is again ABBC Coin which has skyrocketed 120% and surged from nowhere to 33rd largest crypto by market cap. The project has been accused of imitating Alibaba though the Chinese retail giant has no connection to it whatsoever. The platform proposes to use blockchain based facial recognition for identity verification purposes. Steem is also performing well today with a pump of 20% following a recent Huobi listing.
There are no double digit dumps going on at the moment but the worst performing altcoins in the top one hundred at the time of writing are Aurora and Pundi X dropping 8% and 6.5% respectively.
Total crypto market capitalization has not budged since yesterday. It is still cemented at $130 billion as markets continue their consolidation. Daily volume is still at $26 billion and Bitcoin dominance remains at 52% as the tedium continues.
