Litecoin (LTC) – Bullish Descending Triangle?

Another chart that is now showing a positive set-up after drifting sideways to marginally higher over the past weeks. The sharp rally on April2/3 that sent LTC from $60 to nearly $100 has formed the side of a descending triangle with the base around $73. This base has been rejected twice so far. As the price nears the downward slope a sharp break to the upside becomes more likely, especially if LTC moves back above the 20-day ma. According to the CCI indicator, Litecoin is just turning out of oversold territory, adding to the bullish hue.

Crypto Space Takes Another Step in Global Money Transfers as Mithril Gets Listed on ARAX …

… own global payments platform called World Wire, based on the Stellar Coin. World Wire is functional in 72 countries and works with 47 currencies, …

The year 2017 was the best year for cryptocurrencies, as several tokens reached their all-time peaks in the latter half of the year. However, what followed was a disastrous 2018, when the entire crypto market was devastated, with many cryptocurrencies losing as much as 90% of their price value.

This forced crypto companies to look beyond mere speculation and traditional uses. Companies began exploring newer spaces for crypto adoption and brought several industries on to the crypto space. Though companies were working on adoption prior to 2018 as well, the crypto winter pushed the pace to new levels. Consequently, traditional industries like banking, entertainment, healthcare, online gambling, virtual gaming, IT, etc., started accepting and using cryptocurrencies as valid payment instruments. As a result, many finance experts and analysts claimed that cryptocurrencies are the future of money markets.

Global remittances have also increasingly shown double-digit growth figures for the last several quarters. And with the inclusion of cryptocurrencies, the numbers are expected to grow even further.

The scope and potential of electronic money in global payments has forced many established business corporations to give a second look to the crypto space. In fact, companies like JPMorgan and Facebook, which have a humongous user base, chose to launch their own stablecoins focused towards international remittances. On the other hand, technology behemoth IBM, the global leader in blockchain innovation, launched its own global payments platform called World Wire, based on the Stellar Coin. World Wire is functional in 72 countries and works with 47 currencies, with 44 banking endpoints.

Similarly, global payments leader, VISA Inc also announced that it would be integrating blockchain technology with its global operations in a bid to facilitate payments through cryptocurrencies. Walking on similar lines, more and more digital tokens are getting listed on global payments platforms and crypto wallets to stay relevant in the ever-increasing competition.

ARAX, the famous crypto wallet, announced on Monday, April 22, that it has now listed Mithril (MITH) on the platform. The announcement came via the Twitter handle of the platform’s native currency, LALA World (LALA).

Arax is thrilled to welcome Mithril in our community.

Now enjoy the benefits of sending, receiving, exchanging and storing your $MITH tokens in Arax.

MITH is the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum based social media DApp, Mithril. The DApp rewards MITH to users for creating content on the platform. While on the other hand, ARAX is an advanced multi-chain crypto wallet, which allows users to send, receive, exchange and store cryptocurrencies listed on the platform.

ARAX was launched in February earlier this year, by LALA World, a cryptocurrency platform focused at building a Global Digital Decentralized Financial Ecosystem. LALA aims to facilitate the inclusion of the unbanked, undocumented, micro-entrepreneurs, students and other such small elements of the financial system.

Many crypto platforms are taking efforts to up their adoption in the masses, and crypto wallets are playing a big role in this regard. Currently, the payments space is dominated by Ripple (XRP), Stellar (XLM), and SwiftCash (SWIFT).

Litecoin Declines to Monthly Level As Dash Continues Consolidation [Price Analysis]

Litecoin [LTC] and Dash technical analysis for 23rd April 2019. We analyze the recent price action in both these cryptocurrencies and also assess the …
Litecoin Weekly Chart – Source: Tradingview.com

After failing to overcome resistance at $100 during price increases three weeks ago, Litecoin continued its decline last week.

The price has dropped to a level of support at $75 which is an important level on the longer-term monthly time frame.

$75 acted as an important resistance point during price increases in September of 2017 and also acted as support while prices were declining in June and July of 2018.

Litecoin Daily Chart – Source: Tradingview.com

The price has already tested the $75 level several times.

Any drop below the level has quickly found buying pressure to bring the price back above.

Recommended Reading

Consecutive tests of a level serve to weaken the level with fewer buyers to hold the level on each retest.

The most recent test took place on Sunday where the price briefly dropped below.

Both the daily RSI and MACD also indicate that there are high odds that the price will break below this level.

Both the RSI and MACD have been decreasing indicating momentum is on the side of sellers.

However, on the bullish side, the cryptocurrency market leader Bitcoin formed a golden cross today with its 50 SMA crossing its 200 SMA to the upside.

This is often considered an extremely bullish signal for analysts, and if it serves to spur more buying pressure in Bitcoin, there will likely be a knock-on effect in altcoins.

Such an event could result in Litecoin increasing significantly above its support level at $75.

Dash Weekly Chart – Source: Tradingview.com

A Doji candle formed on the Dash weekly chart for last week’s price action.

So far, a Doji candle is also forming this week for Dash representing high levels of uncertainty from traders regarding the future price prospects of Dash.

The price rises of three weeks ago failed to overcome a resistance level at $140.

Dash Daily Chart – Source: Tradingview.com

The price has since dropped to trade to a range between $118 and $124.

Dash is similarly exposed to the bullish patterns forming in Bitcoin today.

With high levels of correlation between Bitcoin USD returns and top altcoins USD returns, price increases in Bitcoin will also likely spur price increases in Dash.

Key Takeaways:

  • Both Litecoin and Dash are exposed to the golden cross forming in Bitcoin, and if more buyers drive the price of Bitcoin up, it will likely have a similar impact in top altcoins.
  • Litecon has been recording bearish price action over the past two weeks, dropping to test an important support level at $75 repeatedly.
  • There has been more consolidation in Dash with a Doji candle forming on the weekly chart for last week’s trading.

ripple xrp price analysis

As reported in our previous XRP news, the price of XRP has been having difficulty gaining against the USD. It is struggling to hold the support at $0.32 against the USD and is also down against the price of BTC. XRP wasn’t even part of the recent bull rally that took the price of BTC above $5300.

The Bitcoin price action did little or nothing to contribute to the price of XRP. Breaking the trend seemed like a good thing at the time because the price of XRP was in trading in green while other cryptocurrencies were in red. However, now, more than ever, XRP may need to rekindle its relationship with Bitcoin. So, when the next Bitcoin bull run starts, the price of XRP will rise along with the rest of the market. This would help since the XRP development isn’t doing much to support the price.

It’s important to note that the current XRP price action is in line with one of our XRP price predictions that placed the price of XRP lower by another 50%. The XRP Army is waiting for the price of XRP to hit bottom so that they can buy and hodl ahead of the next bull run. In fact, some of them consider this fall in price as a good thing. This is because they have faith in technology.

Ripple XRP News Today – XRPayments App Trends in Google Play Store

Almost every trader on the XRP rich list is currently wondering why the price of XRP is falling significantly against the USD and if the current price of XRP will affect the XRP price prediction 2019. Well, it is important to note that almost every cryptocurrency in the market is currently trading in red as part of a market-wide price correction.

Just around the weekend, according to the XRP report on bitcoinexchangeguide; the official launch of XRPayments app on the iOS app store and Google Play was done. Designed by Ripple-backed startup XRPL Labs, the app with an in-built currency converter allows the payments to be made directly from the ledger or through XRPTip Bot.

“Right on time! Our XRPayments app was just accepted by Google and Apple. You can get the app now from the Apple iOS or Google Play store, and start accepting $XRP for payments in your physical store!”

XRPL Labs co-founder Wietse Wind had shared a demo of the app just last month. Within just two days of its release, the app even managed to make it among the top trending apps on Google play in the business category.

Recently, there has been news of XRPTipBot to be integrated into Skype in the near future. Moreover, XRPTipBot is moving to get a banking license as announced by Wind, the brain behind this application as well, at the XRP meetup in Netherland.

A move like such would definitely work in favor of XRP price and will open more opportunities for its retail and institutional adoption.
