    Seems like it’s been a long time since we’ve seen bullish movement on coins outside of the main three coins. I’m wondering what long term coins offer the best chance of lastng, how many will be here in 2020? With over 1000 altcoins and ICOs falling like rain it’s looking like a bubble that cannot be sustained.

TenX: Look Out The Brits Are Coming

Published

on

We have written about TenX in the past with admiration for its business model. We weren’t the only admirers.  Last year TenX raised $80 million, ranking it as the ninth largest ICO of 2017. But now, there is a new threat, UK based Wirex.  These Brits are less well financed but much further along with a real product ready to launch in the US. Could this could put the kibosh on tiny TenX? Let’s take a look.  

You Gotta Love The Concept: Mass Acceptance

Both TenX and Wirex share a similar business model. They make cryptocurrencies spendable anytime, anywhere in the world. Start with their wallet and add a supported cryptocurrency. Then when the need to fill the gas tank or pay for dinner arises, pull out your TenX or Wirex card bearing the VISA or MasterCard logo and complete the transaction.

During the transaction, your crypto is instantly converted to fiat in one seamless step.  The cost of this service to the cardholder is unclear but we presume it will have to compete with exchange fees from entities like Coinbase or Binance.

True, there are certain limitations. So far the Wirex wallet accepts only Bitcoin.  TenX boasts of accepting Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin. That covers about 90% of crypto assets but still leaves out a long list of altcoins and the bazillion of recently minted stablecoins.

Other marketing highlights at the TenX website include the opportunity to “Spend at over 42 million points of acceptance online and offline, in almost 200 countries – perfect for the world traveller.”  Unfortunately the website also notes, “We’re working hard to bring the TenX Card to you as soon as possible. Join the waitlist in the app to be notified when it’s out.”

Neither approach is perfect.  For crypto purists the only solution is for Bitcoin and other altcoins to be accepted directly as a medium of exchange. Maybe that dream will take place by 2028 or sooner but be careful about holding your breath.

Another flaw is that both systems appear dependent on either the VISA or MasterCard payment rail (and this has been a big problem). Even under ideal circumstances these transactions fail to reach the dream of being both frictionless and free.  However from the standpoint of mass acceptance, the merchant is already absorbing these costs so it should not impede acceptance of either TenX or Wirex.

Wirex Comes To America

Now Bitcoin.com reports that Wirex, which just registered in Canada, has its sights on a US launch. There are two aspects about this that are worth noting.  First, Wirex is using transfer technology from i2c. Not being a technology mavin, it is unclear what this exactly means to things like speed and costs but it can’t hurt Wirex’s invasion of America.

So why should investors in TenX be concerned?  After all, things haven’t exactly been all that shining.  At one point this year, TenX ranked in the 50 most highly valued cryptos.  It pretty much carved out a giant sized niche.

And then back in January a great many of Visa’s cryptocurrency debit cards ceased working as the company ended its relationship with a debit card provider called WaveCrest. Affected cards were those issued by WaveCrest, including products from CryptoPay, Bitwala, TenX, Wirex and others. Since then, the price of TenX has dropped from $5 to about $0.55.

This is where the connection between Wirex and i2c could be the answer to the problem. According to Bitcoin.com “The relationship with i2c will enable Wirex to be the first crypto-friendly payment platform to offer this innovative service in the US.”

A Few Metrics on Wirex

If any published data can be believed, it would appear the Wirex already is a small force in crypto to fiat payments.  According to its website, Wirex has over 900,000 customers in 130 countries having participated in over $1 billion in transactions.  That maybe be peanuts compared to the total value of all transactions but it ain’t exactly chump change either.

So while loyal fans of TenX patiently wait for their plastic and investors sit on their $0.55 crypto investment, Wirex appears ready to steal the thunder.

TRON Price Slides 7.2% Despite Release of TRON’s Version of MetaMask

Published

on

TRON just received its own version of Ethereum’s MetaMask in the form of TRONLink – an app which allows web browsers to interact with the TRON blockchain.

While the new feature may open up the TRON blockchain to the technically curious, it is unlikely to register a blip on the radar of the average altcoin buyer.

As such, TRX has seen a continuous slide for the last five days, during which time it lost 7.2% of its value.

This reverses the trend of recent months which had seen TRX break away from the pack thanks to various fundamental developments, and an always active Twitter presence.

TRON Blockchain Gets TRONLink

Created by a TRX wallet developer, TronWatch, the new TRONLink browser extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Brave Browser users.

The extension functions in the same way as Ethereum’s MetaMask, allowing for direct, secure access to blockchain applications and services.

According to the Medium blog post released earlier in the week:

“By integrating TronLink, developers are able to interact with the smart contracts they create for their DApps right inside their browser. Interactions that were previously impossible are now easily accomplished. This enables games, applications, sites, and more , all fueled by the TRON blockchain through TronLink.”

The extension comes at an apt time in the development of Tron, and can now be used to access TRONBet – the blockchain gambling app which recently pushed TRX transactions to higher numbers than that of Ethereum.

TRON founder and CEO, Justin Sun, took to Twitter to announce the news himself, stating:

“With TronLink Beta, developers will now be able to access #TRON‘s blockchain, create and interact with decentralized applications from their Chrome and Firefox browser. More #Dapps on TRON very soon!”

TRX/USD

In the five days leading up to October 23rd, the value of TRX dropped by 7.2%, as the coin price slowly dipped from $0.024933 down to $0.023114.

That’s the biggest dip TRX has taken since the flash dip on October 10-11th, when TRX lost close to 25% of its value. Yet despite this, TRX is now at break even for the month, having opened at the $0.023 mark thirty days ago.

The quarterly high of $0.04 reminds just how much potential for growth there still is the altcoin market. Back in spring of 2018, $0.04 was the support level from which TRX sprung to 100% growth in the month of April.

TRX/BTC and TRX/USDT trades are the most concentrated across various exchanges in the last twenty-four hours. TRX volumes dipped to $75 million on Wednesday, down from the $400 million recorded on October 8th.

Crypto Update: Coins Extend Weekly Losses as Altcoins Still Glued to Support Levels

Published

on

We are having another broadly negative session so far in the cryptocurrency segment, with most of the majors sporting limited losses, and with only a few coins showing relative strength. While the picture is far from being disastrous, we have seen some technical deterioration in the top coins, as Ripple is still bleeding lower, and as Ethereum fell below the $200 price level again.

DASH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The likes of Litecoin, Dash, EOS, IOTA, NEO, and ETC are still weak from a technical perspective, and although some of the minor coins are still faring somewhat better, at least short-term, the overall picture remains overwhelmingly bearish.

Bitcoin’s stability is still a plus for bulls here, but with no sign of meaningful bullish momentum among the top digital currencies, traders should remain defensive even with regards to the relatively stronger coins.


BTC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The most valuable coin is trading slightly lower amid the segment-wide drift lower, but the $6275 support is still well below the current level, and the volatility in BTC’s market continues to be very low. A move below would warn of a test of the $6000 and $5850 levels, and for now, the short-term sell signal is still in place in our trend model despite Bitcoin’s stability.

The next major support zone below $5850 is found between $5000 and $5100, while resistance is ahead at $6500, $6750, and $7000.

Ripple’s Weakness Casts a Shadow on the Market

XRP/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Ripple hasn’t been able to hold last week’s gains, and the coin moved below $0.46 this week, warning of a coming test of the $0.42 level, and a possible resumption of its broader downtrend after its surge in September.

Below $0.42 support levels are found near $0.375 and $0.355, and further weakness could soon lead to a downgrade in our trend model with regards to the long-term outlook, with strong resistance levels still ahead near $0.51, $0.54, and $0.57.

LTC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Litecoin has been one of the stronger coins so far today, but from a broader perspective, it remains relatively weak and the $51 support level looks more and more vulnerable. A break below primary support would likely lead to a test of the bear market low near $47, with the next major support zone below that found at $44.

The broad declining trend is clearly intact, in the coin and traders and investors shouldn’t enter new positions here, with our trend model being negative on all time-frames, and with strong resistance levels ahead near $56, $59, and $64.

ETH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Ethereum continues to show relative weakness, and although remained stable in recent days, the broader setup hints on a likely test of the bear-market low. The coin drifted below the $200 level today, but volatility remains low, and trading activity is still very light.

The currency remains on sell signals on all time-frames, even as the immediate outlook is rather neutral, with key support found near $180, $170, and $160, and with strong resistance zones ahead near $235 and $260.
