Ripple made an unexpected move above the overhead resistance at $0.23. Unfortunately, the bulls failed to hold the price at that level as the coin slumped to the low of $0.22. Sellers are still having the upper hand over buyers. Buyers made their way to the $0.24 price level but were pushed down to the low of $0.22. In a nutshell, XRP will need more buyers at the upper price level.
In the meantime, the price falls to the support of $0.22. An upward movement is expected for the coin to retest the $0.23 and $0.24 price levels. A downward movement is expected if the bulls fail to hold $0.22 support. This will make the coin slide down to $0.21.
Ripple (XRP) Indicator Analysis

What Is the Next Move for Ripple (XRP)?
Ripple’s rally above the $0.23 resistance is inconclusive as the price fell to its previous low. XRP has the possibility of price moving up as the price bars are above the moving averages. As the coin retraces the bearish candlestick has a lower shadow which represents the buying power. As the bears push the price downward, the bulls overcome them .

Bitcoin saw a sharp 6% price drop this week as it breaks beneath $6,800 again. Ethereum witnessed a 4% price decline after rolling over at $172 to reach the current $155 trading price. Ripple saw a small 2.3% price drop as failed to break above $0.2 to reach $0.186. The market cap for the entire cryptocurrency industry dropped by a total of over $10 billion during just the past few days, largely driven by Bitcoin dropping back beneath $7,000 to reach the current $6,773 trading price. This week will be extremely important for Bitcoin (and the rest of the market) because a drop beneath the $6,700 level could cause Bitcoin to unwind toward the $6,000 level. However, with the Bitcoin block halving only 27 days away, it is unlikely that Bitcoin should stay beneath $7,000 for too long. Bitcoin Price Analysis BTC/USD – Daily CHART – SHORT TERM BTC/USD. Source: TradingView Market Overview Looking at the daily chart above, we can see that Bitcoin ran into resistance at the $7,400 level last week which caused the cryptocurrency increase to stall…Apr 14, 2020

Blockchain platform Waves has launched a new betting market allowing users to speculate on whether the spread of the coronavirus pandemic has passed its peak. Customers can now purchase ‘COVID-UP-SEP20’ and ‘COVID-DOWN-SEP20’ tokens to bet on whether the number of new weekly cases worldwide will exceed April 4 – 10’s record of 595,802 confirmed infections before September. Waves’ tokens are purchased in exchange for the stablecoin, Neutrino Dollar (USDN). All USDN used to buy the tokens are locked in escrow until September, and then distributed among the winners. The campaign will ostensibly contribute to coronavirus charity initiatives. Making waves with their new markets At the start of April, Waves launched predictive betting markets allowing users to speculate on whether the number of globally confirmed COVID-19 cases would increase or decrease on a week-over-week basis. Speaking to Cointelegraph a Waves spokesperson revealed the platform’s week-over-week predictive markets had finished, adding that its new September markets are likely to be its last COVID-19-themed betting market. The number of weekly confirmed cases will be determined according to data from the World Health Organization…Apr 30, 2020
According to recent statistics, after the Muir Glacier hard fork, Ethereum block times dropped by 25%, going from 17 seconds to 12.69 seconds. The Ethereum blockchain has seen a lot of activity in the past month. After two hard forks and numerous difficulties, the project is once again making headlines, as recent statistics show that its block time has now lessened by 25%. Before the Muir Glacier hard fork, which took place only days ago, the project needed around 17 seconds to complete each block. Now, the hard fork which once again postponed the time bomb also managed to reduce the block times by 25%, causing each block to only last for about 12.69 seconds. One consequence of the change is the fact that Ethereum‘s supply is likely to grow by about 25%. In other words, the effects of the time bomb delay are already quite noticeable. The number of mined coins after the time bomb surged from 10,000 ETH to 12,000 ETH, with experts expecting the issuance to settle at around 13,500 ETH. While the delay of the time…Jan 4, 2020

Good things don’t last forever it seems. After rallying 20% from the lows to tap $10,000, Bitcoin plunged $500 within the span of 20 minutes this hour, falling from ~$9,750 to $9,200 in that short period of time. It was an 8% reversal from the ~$10,000 highs of the Thursday trading session. Bitcoin price chart of the recent rally and dump from TradingView.com Few expected such a crash. After pushing past resistance level after resistance level in the $8,000s and $9,000s, analysts were convinced BTC was poised to break into yet another full-blown bull trend. But this drop negates that sentiment, at least for the time being. According to data shared by Skew.com, a crypto derivatives platform, approximately $28 million worth of BitMEX long positions were burned during this move. This comes after smaller bouts of $1-10 million liquidations per hour over the past two days as Bitcoin rallied higher. BitMEX’s Bitcoin liquidation data compiled by Skew.com What Analysts Are Thinking About Bitcoin As this move transpired just minutes ago, few analysts have reacted to the move. But other analysts…May 15, 2020

Over the past few months, the crypto industry has been awash with news about the PlusToken Bitcoin scam, which allowed scammers to accrue billions worth of digital assets over the course of a year-long operation. For some context, PlusToken was a cryptocurrency “wallet” and storage solution that gave users returns on their deposits and also gave refers rewards, acting much like a classic Ponzi scheme but with a cryptocurrency backdrop. Earlier this year, a number of ringleaders of the operation were arrested in Vanuatu, though a few individuals remain missing abroad. While few in the West have heard of the scheme, for it was operated mainly out of China, data indicates that the firm stole upwards of $3 billion of cryptocurrencies, mainly Bitcoin, at its peak. Related Reading: Why Bitcoin’s Plunge to $6,500 Might Have Been the Bottom And according to analyses by on-chain analyst Ergo, the remaining ringleaders of PlusToken have likely been selling “a little over 1,100 BTC per day” via mixers and exchanges, which is approximately 60% of the daily block rewards issued by the Bitcoin network,…Dec 14, 2019
The Chicago Mercantile Exchange, or CME, has hosted over $100 billion in volume for its Bitcoin futures trading product. “CME Bitcoin futures have surpassed $100 billion in total notional value traded since their launch in December 2017,” CME Group Managing Director and Global Head of Equity Index Alternative Investment Products, Tim McCourt, told Cointelegraph. Institutions join crypto During the crypto boom of 2017, mainstream financial entities began moving into the industry. In December 2017, at the peak of Bitcoin’s all-time price high, CME launched its cash-settled Bitcoin futures trading product. CME’s market entrance came just one week after the Chicago Board Options Exchange, or CBOE, launched a similar cash-settled Bitcoin futures trading product. “Our Bitcoin futures have evolved over the last two years and are now one of the most liquid, listed bitcoin derivatives available globally,” McCourt said. In contrast, CBOE discontinued its Bitcoin futures trading product in March 2019, after a lengthy bear market consumed the prior year. Progress continues Despite losing institutional crypto participation from the CBOE, the crypto industry has since gained other mainstream involvement. The Intercontinental…Jan 31, 2020
Nike, one of the largest fitness and sport brands in the world, is embracing the shifting technological paradigm as they seek to make shoes named CryptoKicks that are digitized on a blockchain. The patent gives them the right to create unique digital assets and a shoe ID for a pair of shoes sold by the company in the form of a Non Fungible Token (NFT), December 11, 2019. Immutable Footwear Records One of the biggest companies in the world turning their eyes to the cryptocurrency space to utilise the value proposition offered by smart contracts is not something that can be easily ignored. Nike’s plans to tokenize their shoes and create an Ethereum based digital asset for each pair is revolutionary at worst. Each CryptoKick will be unique and have different attributes across style, material, family, heat, colour, and many other criteria. Nike will run a middleware server that connects to a host of various blockchain networks like Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. And while the company does not single out Ethereum, examples of situations throughout the patent point towards their…Dec 11, 2019
