Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) wants to develop a mobile application that runs on Ripple. The 112-year-old bank has around 16 million customers and they want to deliver “happiness and smiles” to their customers. Not really sure how a banking app can cause smiling and happiness, but SCB’s SVP of Commercial Banking, Arthit Sriumporn believes that it can be achieved by partnering with Ripple. Alright, putting jokes aside, let’s look at the results of a recent survey by PwC. They have found out that 86% of China’s population uses mobile banking apps. In Thailand, it’s near 67% of the total population. Overall, eight of the top ten countries using mobile banking apps in the world, come from Asia. This is a clear sign of the digitalization that we are witnessing right now. People in Asia are starting to switch to a much more modern means of exchanging everyday money. However, this couldn’t be described as a problem in a first world country. Apple Pay and similar payment providers are already a piece of everyday lives. Although that is the today of…Jan 9, 2020
The development team behind Ethereum 2.0 held an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Feb. 5. The team answered some of the most pressing questions on Serenity, in addition to general themes such as Proof of Stake (PoS). There have been two other such sessions, six months and one year ago, respectively. While no groundbreaking changes occurred since the last AMA, the team is making concrete steps toward Ethereum (ETH) scalability. Phase 0 to come in 2020 Answering questions on what has changed in Ethereum 2.0 since the last AMA in June, the team generally agreed that most features remained the same. Though they had committed to the earlier 0.8 Serenity specification, this later changed as 1.0 was revealed. Danny Ryan from Ethereum Foundation elaborated: “Feature-wise not a lot has changed since June, but it was a little too early to commit to the freeze fully. Since then the primary changes to the BeaconChain have been for the better; avoid invalid placeholder specs for phase1, move unnecessary complexity (e.g. some early optimizations for light clients) to phase1 when we actually…Feb 6, 2020

However, the volume of positive candlestick was considerably low. The price of Ethereum at 3: 15 hours UTC on 9th December 2019 is $150. The recent up-gradation was one of the many changes to be implemented on the network. Problems with a Hard Fork The plan outlined by the Ethereum Foundation involves more ‘hard forks’ in the future. The problem with hard forks is that it requires the node operators to upgrade their mining protocols. Peter Todd, leading Bitcoin developer criticized the progress within the network. He said, People have questioned this,…Dec 10, 2019
Bitcoin experienced a surge in May this year, rising to $8942.58, the highest level since 2019. The whole circle seems to be filled with the resurrection of life overnight, and it also triggered a series of “cryptocurrency winter” has ended. People’s confidence is too easy to be ignited, and in contrast, it is easier to be extinguished. Back to the topic, this round of price increases is easy to recall some of the large price increases during the cryptocurrency boom in late 2017. They have made Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies the biggest beneficiaries of the higher risk asset price increases so far this year. The push for this round is the signs that the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank will implement more loose monetary policy.There are reports that demand from institutional buyers and venture capital funds has also driven the price rebound this year. From a media perspective, the attractiveness of Bitcoin is far greater than the blockchain, which is determined by the “profitability” of people. However, the ups and downs of Bitcoin make it hard to understand,…Jun 5, 2019

Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Whether or not Bitcoin will soar after next year’s halving is drawing mixed opinions. However, one Bitcoin (BTC) Technical Analyst is confident that the prices of the world’s most valuable coin will soar to over $141,000 a pop if deductions are made based on historical price action. In a widely shared video posted on YouTube, the analyst is confident that BTC’s price is yet to be priced in and that there is more room for gains. Bitcoin is a Logarithmic Asset Bitcoin is considered as a logarithmic asset. That means, unlike most assets, its prices do experience sharp busts and towards the tail end, prices tend to taper, plateauing. Analysts are confident that despite the clear exponential growth of BTC prices at certain points in time, logarithmic tools are suitable for predicting the asset. By basing their findings on price charts that act as maps, there is context since past action can be sufficient in laying out the framework for future pricing. Also, the capital market, though appearing trendless with…Nov 16, 2019
Ethereum’s recent uptrend reached a boiling point yesterday when the cryptocurrency rallied to highs of $148, which is the level at which ETH met significant selling pressure that led to a strong and swift rejection. The strong rejection at this level has put ETH into a downwards tailspin, even forcing it to lose its position within the $140 region. Analysts are now noting that this rejection came about after the cryptocurrency hit a key resistance level, which may lead it to drop to the lower boundary of its current descending channel, potentially leading it as low as $85 in the near-term. Ethereum Shows Signs of Reversing Recent Uptrend At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down roughly 3% at its current price of $139, which marks a notable decline from its daily highs of $148 that were set at the peak of yesterday’s rally. It is important to note that Ethereum is still trading up significantly from weekly lows of $126, although its recent uptrend uppers to be at risk of reversing as its selling pressure begins ramping up….Jan 9, 2020
Ethereum (ETH) remains in a steady downtrend. The 4H chart for ETH/USD shows the price trading within a descending channel since the beginning of July. However, we have seen short lived bullish rallies along the way because nothing just keeps on rising or falling in a straight line. The price is now at a point where similar bullishness can be expected. However, what most traders want to know is how much room the price has to rally further. If we zoom in on the recent price action, we can see that it has been a reflection of what has been happening BTC/USD but Ethereum (ETH) has lagged behind as far as the gains are concerned. However, we have seen after every decline in this downtrend that the price ends up rallying to test the 200 moving average. The chart also shows that bullish reversals during this downtrend have been taking longer at the beginning of the downtrend but as the price keeps on falling further down the descending channel, it takes less time to see a bullish reversal. However, the…Dec 7, 2019
Jan 06, 2020 at 17:45 // News Bitcoin faces another price rejection in the New Year. Undoubtedly, the $7,600 has become a strong resistance which has been the biggest hurdle to jump over. Two days ago the coin suffered another fall, as the market continues to depreciate. In the previous fall, BTC was sent to a low of $7,000 on January 2. Regrettably, Bitcoin would have been in danger, if the $7,000 support also cracks. A surprise drop to the $6,400 should have been in the making. Nonetheless, the bulls overcome the bears’ threat and push the price to $7,600. Now it becomes imperative that with the same level of bullish momentum buyers are capable of pushing the price above $7,800 resistance. Interestingly, a close above $7,800 will compel Bitcoin to reach a high of $9,200. Subsequently, BTC can move to the $10,300 supply zone. Bitcoin Indicator Reading The pair is fluctuating between 20% and 60% of the daily stochastic. The coin’s bullish momentum has been unsteady. The EMAs are horizontally flat indicating that the price is ranging. It is…Jan 6, 2020
Feb 01, 2020 at 14:17 // News In the last three days of January, Ripple has consistently surged forward to a higher price level but the coin seems to be unstable. The coin pushed upward to the $0.24 price level on the 29th and 30th of January but declined each time to the $0.23500 low. This is the buyers’ inability to sustain at a higher price level. Our position on Ripple is simple. Ripple will surpass the price above $0.25 if the bulls break above $0.24, and the momentum is sustained. Nonetheless, the subsequent move will propel the coin to a high of $0.30. This is made possible because there will be no bottlenecks or resistance as the coin rides on the current trend. Let’s look at the other side of the coin. Failure on the part of the bulls to break above $0.24 will only enable XRP to struggle above $0.23. The temptation to further depreciate is not far fetched. Ripple (XRP) Indicator Analysis The pair is trading above level 60 of the daily RSI period 14. That is…Feb 1, 2020
