General Manager of Houston Rockets Basketball Team Bullish on Bitcoin
Daryl Morey, the general manager of the Houston Rockets basketball team, said that he recently bought more Bitcoin (BTC).
On Aug. 23, Morey tweeted “I just bought more” in response a pro-Bitcoin tweet by Morgan Creek Digital Assets co-founder Anthony Pompliano, who said that Bitcoin allows investors to avoid the chaos of global markets.
Indeed, some commentators have suggested that Bitcoin’s price can serve as an indicator of geopolitical turmoil and serve as a safe haven asset for individuals in economically or politically turbulent situations.
Pompliano wrote that Morey should now be added to the long list of celebrities, athletes and musicians that are pro-Bitcoin.

As Cointelegraph Brasil reported earlier this month, Russel Okung, an NFL player for the Los Angeles Chargers, is promoting a series of local encounters meant to educate people on how Bitcoin works. Last week he tweeted that he may give away Chargers tickets to people coming to the “Bitcoin is_” conference in Los Angeles.
As Cointelegraph recently reported, the Dallas Mavericks have become the second NBA team to accept Bitcoin as a means of payment for match tickets and merchandise. Introducing cryptocurrency payment options purportedly became a priority for the team when the team owner, billionaire tech investor Mark Cuban, hinted at adding crypto payments last year.

As you well know, the cryptocurrency reached as high as $10,600 as a monumental influx of buying pressure allowed BTC to post its highest daily gain since 2011, at 42%.Things have since calmed down. But, Bitcoin remains at $9,700, which is over 10% higher than where the CME’s market closed on Friday afternoon.Shortly (minutes after publishing this), the Bitcoin futures for the CME will open.

The minor bitcoin price rally which Bloomberg initially rejected as an April Fools’ joke has metamorphosized into a laughter riot.The world’s leading cryptocurrency has surged as much as 116.29% since its first notable breakout action of April 2. It established a fresh yearly high $8,947.88 this Monday in what now appears like a tireless bull run. There have been no signs of extreme pullbacks despite bitcoin’s overbought status. And every minor downside correction is influencing more speculators to enter the bitcoin market at a slightly lower intraday rate.THE GIANT FALLING WEDGEThe ongoing bitcoin price rally also brought attention to a giant falling wedge formation that started in February 2018 and ended in April 2019, as shown in the chart below:A falling wedge is typically a bullish indicator with a 62% success rate when it comes to meeting upside targets. The pattern is confirmed if an asset’s price moves in a downward trajectory while fluctuating between two converging trendlines. The lower trendline behaves as a support, while the upper trendline acts as a resistance. The price keeps bouncing between the two unless it reaches the apex of the falling wedge….May 28, 2019
Every time, Bitcoin price changes affect the minds and desires of many people. Whether it is rising or falling, people always habitually seek the reasons behind it, in order to clarify the market situation, grasp the market timing, and even master certain rules.In the early morning of May 27th, Bitcoin began to rise from around $7,900. In just a few hours, the increase was nearly 10%, with a maximum of $8,800.Some analysts believe that the rise of this round is consistent with the time of the results for some EU national parliamentary elections. The results show that populism and extremist forces prevail. However, Zerohedge believes which there is no indication that buying pressure has come from this. More likely, in the trade war tension, investors’ safe-haven demand has driven demand for virtual currency.In addition, many investors believe that increasing institutional support is the main driving force behind this round of market. For example, Facebook is experimenting with the digital currency-based payment system “Project Libra” project. Fidelity has also started offering Bitcoin hosting services early this year, and there are rumors that it will launch Bitcoin…May 28, 2019

Popular Software guru and crypto enthusiast John McAfee has voiced his opinion on Twitter about a certain CZ coin in a manner similar to the way he had promoted (Shilled) at least ten cryptocurrencies in the past, all of which are now popular shitcoins.McAfee’s New Adventure- “Teaching Crypto to Zombies”McAfee took to his Twitter handle to publicly announce his support for the rather strange project and its cryptocurrency and to inform the community of both the available developments and the advantages that exist.The @china_zombie people have created their protective medallion which all purchasers of $50 or more worth of the CZ coin will receive. The company insists that their retrovirus that has spread to all zombies is generically keyed to these medallions. Possessors will not be eaten. pic.twitter.com/dIPj5Xeaaj— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) August 26, 2019The project in question is simply called CZ coin which is being developed by an individual or by a group of people existing as South China Zombie Research Center, whom McAfee himself referred to as ” China Zombie people.”Following the lead of China Zombie Research Center, zombies…Aug 27, 2019
Ethereum (ETH) had a brutal decline in the past 24 hours. We have been talking about this decline for a while now. The price has declined and closed below the $186.15 mark and to me this is confirmation of the bearish setup at play here. That being said, it would be extremely unreasonable to talk about a bearish setup without talking about this falling wedge on the daily chart for ETH/USD. For now, this falling wedge is more significant than the descending triangle that was broken to the downside. That is because as long as this falling wedge remains valid, the break below the descending triangle remains inconsequential. We are still highly likely to see the price break out of the falling wedge and climb back above $186.15 and even rally higher to test the 50 day EMA before the downtrend begins.For the bulls, this falling wedge is another opportunity to accumulate. Altcoin confidence has been shattered brutally the past few months which is why it would not be unreasonable to expect that the price can rally from here even…Aug 30, 2019
