EOS Price Analysis: EOS is Set Up for Bigger Gains, Following Recent Technical Development

Published

on

  • EOS has jumped around 45% between the sessions of 15th – 17th December. 
  • Bulls shrug off all negative related news flow that has surrounded EOS in recent weeks.

The EOS/USD bulls are on a serious mission to recovery. Unlike several of its peers, a slowdown in momentum has not been seen with the EOS price. More importantly, a breakout has been observed from a range-block, of which EOS/USD was confine within. This had been the case since the 7th December, managing to escape however on 17th and capitalize further on that.

EOS Shakes off Negative Commentary

Over the past few weeks, there have been several negative bits of news flow. Recently, as covered by Hacked in a prior article, the Cardano founder, Charles Hoskinson, had a fair few words to say about EOS. He had noted that action from regulators was potentially right around the corner for EOS. Hoskinson had specifically raised concerns about the EOS token sale.

Elsewhere, it was recently covered by Chinese press that EOS decentralized apps (DApps) have been victim to hacks totaling around $1 million since July. The report cited data which was collected by PeckShield, who are a blockchain security organization. This suggests that the DApps on EOS have been hit by at least 27 breaches from July up to late November. This is an amount of 400,000 EOS, equivalent to 8 million yuan, at the time of the published report.

Lastly, at the back-end of last month, there was some FUD surrounding the CTO of Block.one, Daniel Larimer. The community and social media space were concerned about Larimer working on new projects. This prompted worries that he may be leaving EOS, keeping in mind the EOS mainnet hadn’t even reached a year.

EOS has pretty much shrugged much of this FUD off, as seen with this latest rally. It has far outperformed its peers with the big gains collected over the past two sessions.

Technical Review EOS/USD

EOS/USD daily chart

EOS/USD had a decent extension to the upside after breaching the confinements of the detailed range-block.  The bulls initially jumped a chunky 45% over the period of 15th to the 17th December. However, into the session on Tuesday, the price has run into some minor resistance, seen at the 4th December high area. This can be noted within $2.60 territory.

The pullback being observed at the time of writing isn’t too much of a surprise, given the burst higher in such a short time frame. Profit-taking is only natural in this case. It is a minor retreat ahead of further potential moves north. Eyes will be on the breached range-block for support, the top of that seen at $2.18.

Should the bulls gather enough momentum for a push above the minor near-term resistance seen, then a fast 60% move could be seen. This would take EOS/USD back towards $4.40, where another minor supply zone is observed. Further north, a reclaim of the pre-November fall levels, i.e., $6 territory, is the next major target.

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA Bulls Set for Another Retest of Big Supply Area

Published

on

  • ADA/USDT trading firmly within the green on Wednesday, outperforming its peers.
  • Cardano Shelley upgrade is heavily anticipated across the community.

The ADA/USDT pair was seen holding decent gains in the session on Wednesday, up as much as 5%. The bulls are looking at resuming their decent upside momentum, which was seen through mid-December early January. In terms of that rally seen, the price gained a whopping 90%, moving from around $0.02793 up to a high print at around $0.05368 on 10th January. This was the highest-level ADA/USDT had reached since 19th November.

ADA/USDT daily chart.

The bulls had the wind taken out of their sails after failing to breakdown a known area of supply. This can be seen tracking from $0.04900 up to $0.05400. The price has not been above this level since 19th November 2018, which was a period of heavy selling. Buyers have faltered here on two occasions recently – 24th December 2018 and 10th January. It will not be an easy area to break down; however, upside potential is chunky should it be broken down.

Project Shelley Imminent

The eagerly awaited Shelley update is very much quickly nearing its release from the Cardano foundation. It is set to be launched in the coming few weeks, as can be seen via their roadmap countdown clock.

This update is significant as it will make the Cardano blockchain fully decentralized. The Cardano blockchain is currently within the Byron phase. In terms of the Shelley upgrade, it will additionally mark the release of Cardano 1.5. The foundation provides the following insight from the detailed roadmap, “As we progress through Shelley, work will be done that contributes to stability, interoperability and governance. Throughout the arc of development, Cardano’s protocols will increase in complexity, interdependence and use more exotic cryptographic primitives”.

Technical Review – ADA/USDT

ADA/USDT 4-hour chart.

A near-term upside challenge is seen tracking from $0.043500-$0.045000, via the 4-hour chart view. Over the past six sessions now, the bulls have failed to break this area down. Further north of this, a heavier zone of supply can be observed from $0.04900 up to $0.05400, as detailed earlier.

If the bulls fail to move north of the mentioned areas, then key daily support levels should be noted for potential comfort. Eyes would be on the following levels: $0.03900 (13-14 January low), $0.03550 and then finally $0.027600 (7-16th December 2018 low area).

STEEM Coin on the Move While Steemit Loses 20 Million Visitors in Six Months

Published

on

One of the three currencies which fuel the Steemit blockchain-based social media site, Steem (STEEM) gained 22% in the previous two days. Despite the increased price movement in January, monthly visitors and unique account creations continue to plumb new yearly lows on the Steemit social media website.

STEEM Price

STEEM’s recovery has been slow in coming – the coin gained 43% from December into January, however most of that came in the last forty-eight hours. Compare that to major and mid-cap altcoins such as Tron (TRX), Zilliqa (ZIL) and Augur (REP) which gained over 100% in that time, and you see a major discrepancy.

From Monday through to Wednesday STEEM went on a 22% run which carried the coin price from $0.249836 up to $0.306033. Trades against Korean won on the Upbit exchange accounted for more than 40% of the day’s trades, or around $1.2 million of the $2.7 million daily total.

Steemit Cools Down

After suffering the indignity of laying off a majority of its staff back in November, Steemit continues to hold on despite plummeting numbers.

Remarkably, the Steemit social media site lost almost 20 million monthly visitors in the last six months – a 61% drop off from the 30.8 million visitors in July, to the current 11.9 monthly visitors according to SimilarWeb. New account creations are also down 83% in the last six days alone, however statistics show that new users tend to flood in whenever the coin price pumps – even if just for a brief time.

CCN reported back in May of 2018 that Steemit had surpassed one million accounts created on the blockchain. This was a startling figure at the time, and grabbed a lot of headlines. However, Steemit statistics from the time suggest the number of unique users was actually much less – closer to 150,000 according to this chart from Steemit’s @arcange.

Follow the Money

The same chart shows that January of 2018 remains Steemit’s most successful month. The site gained close to 120,000 new users in the sixty days leading up to January’s all-time high, when the coin price climbed as high as $8.57.

As the coin fell to a twenty-month low in December, unique accounts on the blockchain also fell to eighteen-month lows in the process. A major increase to new account creations was seen on January 9th, as STEEM went on a similar 23% price spike, and 4,108 new users flocked to Steemit in one day.

Stats courtesy of Steemit’s @penguinpablo

By six days later, new registrations had fallen back to 695 per day, as STEEM’s gains from the previous few days were wiped out.

Steemit launched back in early 2016, and has divided opinion since its inception. Check out this recent primer for an up to date summary of Steemit and its features.

Binance Coin Price Analysis: Binance Completes 6th Token Burn; BNB/USDT Struggling to Move Back Above Breached Channel

Published

on

  • Binace has completed their sixth round of BNB token burning, a total of around 1.6 million.
  • BNB/USDT bulls are retesting a breached ascending channel formation.

BNB/USDT is holding steady for now, with a gains of 4% on Wednesday. Caution can be observed following a breakout to the downside from a rising channel formation. The price had been moving within this structure from around 15th December, when the bulls commenced the most recent upside trend. BNB/USDT had gained as much as 51%, while within the confinements of this. However, all good bull runs must come to an end, and on 10th January the lower supporting trend line gave way to the market bears.

BNB/USDT daily chart.

In terms of price behavior since the break, as detailed earlier, there is a lack of commitment seen. The bulls have stringently retested and been moving underneath the channel but have not got the momentum to break back above at this time.

Binance Complete 6th BNB Token Burn

The world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by traded volume, Binance, announced they have completed their sixth token burn. Binance burnt a reported total of 1,623,818 BNB tokens. This detailed burn was for the period between October 1 and December 31, 2018. For comparative purposes, the number is similar to the 1,643,986 BNB amount that they previously burned in their fifth round.

Despite the similar number of BNB being burnt, it is worth considering that the final quarter of 2018 had “brought significant changes in the cryptocurrency landscape”. In monetary terms, the dollar value during the sixth BNB burn was around $9.4 million, versus the $17 million during the previous period.

CZ, founder and CEO of Binance, said, “I’m excited about is Binance Chain and Binance DEX, which will launch soon. From a tech standpoint, it is a major development for the Binance ecosystem. From an earnings standpoint, Binance DEX will not directly increase profitability for Binance, but it will certainly increase the utility of BNB in a big way. That should be good for BNB holders. Binance is also a larger holder of BNB, so we benefit the same way as all BNB holders. The more people using Binance Chain, the more value is created, or the more successful we all become.”

Technical Review – BNB/USDT

BNB/USDT must break back above the $6.40 area to attract another wave of buying. This is where the lower supporting trend line of the breached channel in tracking. Separately, a supply zone is seen in proximity, tracking from $6.20-$6.90. The price has not been above this region since 19th November. Should the bulls gather enough momentum to break above this supply, then a fast move could be seen back to $10.00. BNB/USDT had been consolidating here prior to the steep fall in November.

Looking to the downside, there isn’t much in the way of major support seen until the $4.00 price region. This is where the December low can be seen, $4.12, with a demand zone observed running from $4.55-$4.12.
