Crypto Moon Party has just kicked off: analyst

By Tomas Salles


  • Market sentiment remains neutral despite yesterday's hikes, recalling past disappointments after previous pumps.
  • Ethereum is positioned to beat Bitcoin in the next bull market.
  • XRP is hit and misses the upside, but the ball is still in play.
Tuesday was a fantastic bullish day in the cryptocurrency markets, a positive trading day that was announced here with the help of technical analysis a few minutes before it started.
The rises have been widespread, in some cases reaching outrageous magnitudes as is the case of Bitcoin BSV (+70.5%), Bitcoin Gold (+77.38%) or DASH (+47.23%)
Some of these upside proposals are risky since when they occur in illiquid assets, the timing of profit collection can be complicated and take a large part of the profit in the process.

 The winners by trading volume were Bitcoin ($10.9bn), Ethereum ($3.22bn) and Litecoin ($1.54bn). XRP came in sixth place and was below the billion mark at $736.22M.
Despite the rise, market sentiment is in neutral mode, citing statistics from Its sentiment indicator marks 54, on a 0-100 scale (0- extreme fear, 100- extreme euphoria).

Bitcoin Eyes $9K After Biggest Single-Day Rise in a Month

By Omkar Godbole


  • Bitcoin violated crucial resistance near $8,460 on Tuesday, strengthening the case for a rise to the 200-day average at $9,100.
  • The pullback seen in the last 12 hours or so lacks volume support and could be short-lived.
  • Acceptance under Tuesday's low of $8,100 would abort the short-term bullish bias. Indicators, however, are reporting strong bullish momentum, so a drop below $8,100 looks unlikely.

    Bitcoin jumped sharply on Tuesday, violating key resistance and opening the doors for a test of a widely followed technical line above $9,000.
    The number one cryptocurrency by market value added nearly $800 to its price and ended the day (UTC) with 8.74 percent gains – the biggest single-day gain since Dec. 15, according to  Bitcoin Price Index. 

    Back then, bitcoin had reversed higher from an eight-month low of $6,425 to score its first double-digit gain since Oct. 25. The big move from multi-month lows warned of an impending reversal of the six-month bearish period – a trend change that was confirmed with last week’s 11 percent price gain. 
    That bullish breakout has been bolstered by Tuesday’s move above $8,463 – passing the resistance of a lower high created on Jan. 8.

    As a result, the next major resistance – the 200-day moving average (MA) located at $9,100 – could soon come into play. 
    At press time, bitcoin is changing hands near $8,710, representing a 1.4 percent gain on a 24-hour basis. 
    While prices have pulled back from Tuesday’s high of $8,900, the technical charts suggest it's nothing more than a temporary correction.

What to Expect : 120 Days Remain Until Bitcoin’s Halving

bitcoin halving

As of today, January 13, 2020, Bitcoin’s halving is just 120 days away, marking the first time such an event will occur since the first-ever cryptocurrency rocketed into the public eye and became a household name.
With the halving drawing nearer, here’s what cryptocurrency investors and Bitcoin believers can expect going into the next four months.

Bitcoin Halving: 120 Days Away and Counting


Before Bitcoin, many attempts at developing a digital-only version of cash had ultimately failed. Through these failed ventures, Satoshi Nakamoto – the mysterious and unknown creator of Bitcoin – coded Bitcoin’s protocol to contain certain failsafes that would not only prevent a double-spend – among the biggest challenges prior developers faced – but also to ensure the asset’s longevity and scarcity.

Ethereum could be undervalued compared to Bitcoin: analyst


ethereum price

On the most recent episode of Laura Shin’s Unconfirmed podcast, senior research analyst for CoinMetrics, Nate Maddrey, spoke about Bitcoin, as well as other altcoins, and how they performed over 2019. Maddrey noted that while Bitcoin was up around 90% over 2019, Ethereum was nearly 5% down on the year.
“This is one of the first years where we’ve really seen that sort of separation between Bitcoin and Ethereum.”

 When asked why Bitcoin outperformed most altcoins, he explained that it was mostly due to the bear market, when people tend to consolidate and sell some of the smaller coins. Maddrey also stated that they’re seeing more evidence that Bitcoin is really being used as a store of value. “I think we’re actually starting to see some real compelling data,” he said.
