Oil tycoon Frank Timis has been revealed as the biggest shareholder in Argo Blockchain, a crypto mining firm that listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) last summer.
According to a Daily Mail report on Saturday, Timis’ involvement with the firm was revealed after he moved behind the scenes to oust two board members at the firm in order to force a change in direction for the struggling firm.
It has been a while since anyone last talked about Electroneum in a hyped up manner. Although the Electroneum price is still at a respectable level, the massive growth some investors had hoped for has not materialized in the slightest. In fact, it seems there is a status quo for some time now, which might not necessarily be a bad thing either.
Electroneum Price Trend Remains the Same
As most cryptocurrencies tend to be very volatile first and foremost, it is all the stranger to see one market remain at a status quo.
As was to be expected, most of the negative momentum haunting the cryptocurrency markets has quieted down once again. Weekends are usually nefarious for bearish pressure, whereas Mondays will confirm the trend or make other things happen. Today, it seems the latter option is in place. As the Cardano price shows signs of life again, traders show some degree of excitement where this altcoin is concerned.
Cardano Price Goes Through a Nice Rebound
After a bit of a rough Sunday, it would appear as if the cryptocurrency markets are bouncing back rather strongly.
Bitcoin spenders can now use the lightning network to shop at e-commerce sites like Amazon.
Crypto payment processing startup Moon announced today that any lightning-enabled wallet can now also be used through Moon’s browser extension. Before this lightning feature, roughly 250 beta users already used Moon to spend crypto on e-commerce sites by connecting the browser extension to exchange accounts like Coinbase.
It becomes increasingly unlikely this Sunday will end on a high note for the top cryptocurrency markets. The culprit is not hard to find, as Bitcoin’s dip drags everything down with it. This drop below $5,300 is not entirely surprising over the course of the weekend, albeit it remains to be seen when the Bitcoin price will recover this time around.
Bitcoin Price Downtrend Was to be Expected
Despite a solid week of semi-bullish momentum, it seems Bitcoin has finally hit some sort of minor roadblock along the way.
In the cryptocurrency world, there has never been a lack of nefarious projects, theft, and hacking attempts. In Israel, it would appear as if a recent indictment is making a fair bit of attention. One citizen has been indicted for stealing nearly 1% of the entire Dash supply to date. A very interesting claim which warrants some explaining.
The Major Dash Heist Explained
Anonymous and privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies have attracted a lot of attention over the past few years.
When all of the top cryptocurrency markets dip in the red, there is a genuine chance some lower-ranked projects will start moving up all of a sudden. Today is no different in that regard, as the current Factom price trend doesn’t correlate with the top markets whatsoever. Traders will be pleased to see some gains materialize for FCT, as it has been a rough year so far.
Factom Price Tries to Stand out
It is commendable to see some markets move up when the overall industry-wide sentiment is bearish first and foremost.
As the bearish pressure shows no immediate signs of relenting just yet, there remains a fair bit of uncertainty across the cryptocurrency markets. Even the Tron price is going down significantly, with the hourly chart still looking very bearish at this time.
Tron Price Keeps Taking Hits
Not too many people will be surprised to see Bitcoin dipping slightly in the red over the past few hours. This dip was coming for some time now, yet it has only materialized today.
Bitcoin’s 14-week relative strength index (RSI) has moved above above the key resistance range of 53.00–55.00, validating the longer-term bullish reversal signaled by a falling channel breakout witnessed two weeks ago.
As a result, BTC may rise to the former support-turned-resistance of $6,000 over the next couple of months.
A pullback to the 200-day MA, currently located just below $4,500, may precede such a rise.
The cryptocurrency is teasing a falling channel breakout on the hourly chart, which, if confirmed, could see prices revisit recent highs above $5,460 in the next day or two.
Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Zaif, which was hacked for about $60 million last year, is under new management.
The exchange announced on its corporate website on Friday that, as of Monday, April 22, the firm will have signed over its business to publicly listed Japanese investment firm Fisco and full operations will be reinstated Tuesday.
The plan for the takeover was first aired in October 2018, and sees the exchange pass from its previous owner, Tech Bureau, to an existing crypto exchange owned Fisco.
Serena Williams, one of the world’s most successful tennis players of all time, has revealed in an Instagram post that she is an investor in cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase.
Williams took to the social media platform late last week to announce her VC firm Serena Ventures – which was secretly founded in 2014 – and listing some of its investments, including Coinbase and startups in areas such as fitness, clothing, food and women’s health and community.
Investment banking giant JPMorgan Chase is planning to expand an existing blockchain project to include settlement features as it seeks to fend off competition from payments upstarts such as TransferWise and Ripple.
The blockchain-based Interbank Information Network (IIN), set up in partnership with Australia’s ANZ bank and the Royal Bank of Canada back in 2017, currently allows its over 220 banking members to quickly address payments that contain errors or get held up for compliance reasons – problems that can takes weeks to solve with multiple banks being involved across the payments chain.
With most of the cryptocurrency markets heading in the red once again, it is rather interesting to keep an eye on the individual markets. Whereas some people expect big things from XRP, it would appear Ripple’s native asset isn’t making too much headway. In fact, the XRP price is going in the red as well, with a dip below 6,000 Satoshi looking all the more plausible.
XRP Price Can’t Catch a Break
It is always interesting to see what the future holds for markets which are not Bitcoin.
As was somewhat to be expected, there is a lot of bearish pressure across all of the different cryptocurrency markets. While this is not entirely surprising, it would appear the Litecoin price is facing a lot of negative pressure as of right now. Its price may very well drop below $75 in quick succession, but it seems unlikely any further decline will materialize.
Litecoin Price Momentum Sours Significantly
In the cryptocurrency world, weekends are usually interesting in many different ways.
As the Saturday afternoon almost draws to a close, there are still plenty of crypto market changes to take advantage of. The Monacoin price is going on an absolute rampage as of right now, although few people will be able to pinpoint the exact reason for this unexpected uptrend.
MonaCoin Price Pumps Pretty Hard
It is always interesting to take note of the different cryptocurrencies and their price trends throughout the weekend.
After a token sale on CoinList failed to reach its target, data marketplace Ocean is trying again on crypto exchange Bittrex International.
Ocean Protocol has a vision to become the ecosystem for “a new data economy,” its founder Bruce Pon told CoinDesk. With the release of Ocean’s version 1.0 beta network earlier in April, its tokens are ready to be used on the platform, but the company has not quite met its fundraising goal.
Through its initial exchange offering (IEO), Ocean aims to raise $6.
UPDATE (April 18 20:30 UTC): This article has been updated to include a response from Bittrex at the bottom.
Shirin Emami is the executive deputy superintendent for banking at the New York State Department of Financial Services.
In the altcoin industry, there will always be mixed momentum over the course of a weekend. As the weekend is a notoriously bearish period, one would come to expect some altcoins to lose value regardless of where Bitcoin is headed. Today is no different, as the VeChain price is under pressure and might drop below $0.007 again.
VeChain Price Heads South Again
Although it seems to have gone relatively quiet where VeChain is concerned, the project is still faring quite well.
As this Saturday trucks along rather nicely it would appear the overall cryptocurrency trend remains rather positive. As long as the Bitcoin price is in the green – like it is today – there is a good chance the uptrend will remain in place. Ever since BTC surpassed $5,300, things have continued to look up despite most traders’ expectations.
Bitcoin Price Continues to Move up
Most cryptocurrency traders and speculators are pretty happy to see the Bitcoin value move up despite the world’s leading cryptocurrency surpassing the $5,300 mark.
It would appear everything is proceeding as planned in the rather volatile cryptocurrency world. Most of the markets are either in the green or not tiny losses which is not all that worrisome. The Tron price is also heading south, primarily because the hourly charts continue to add minute bearish pressure to the overall trend.
Tron Price Momentum Doesn’t Look Promising
It is only normal some crypto market swill suffer from a retrace of sorts during the weekend.
On this sunny Saturday, it would appear there is no lack of positive cryptocurrency market momentum. While not all markets follow similar patterns, the usual suspects seem to be moving up accordingly. A lot of people will keep an eye on the Basic Attention Token price, as it has gone on another major surge for some reason.
Basic Attention Token Price Surges Again
As long as Bitcoin remains in the green, there is a good chance most alternative markets will go through very similar motions.
Cryptocurrency wallet solutions come in many different forms, shapes, sizes, and versions. All of these offerings tend to offer something slightly different from its competitors, to varying degrees of success. ZenGo is a very different creature, as it is a wallet solution which doesn’t require key pairs whatsoever. As is to be expected, this controversial approach tends to leave the community a bit divided.
The ZenGo Concept is Unusual
While one has to commend cryptocurrency wallet developers on trying a different approach compared to the current offerings, one has to wonder how many of these options will prove to be viable in the long run.
In the cryptocurrency world, there is always interesting momentum to keep an eye on. While weekends are not usually known for their bullish momentum, today has proven to be a more than interesting exception in this regard. The Binance Coin price is moving up swiftly, as yesterday’s trend is still in place today. This also marks the first new all-time high for BNB in over a year.
Binance Coin Price Keeps Rising Higher
It is always interesting to see how the individual cryptocurrency markets evolve throughout the weekend.
As the weekend almost dawns upon the cryptocurrency industry, there are several possible scenarios waiting to play out. In the bearish sense, Bitcoin might lose a bit of value and drag all alternative markets with it. So far, it seems there is no real pressure yet, as the $5,300 level remains ripe for the taking. This is positive Bitcoin price news, albeit weekends remain unpredictable.
Bitcoin Price Momentum Remains Intact
When the world’s leading cryptocurrency so much as dares to move an inch in either direction, there will be new price predictions being charted.
Wondering whether this is the best time to stock up on bitcoin? It is, at least according to a recent report by Adamant Capital. The report stated that the currency is in its last stage of the bear market; the accumulation phase. Bitcoin HODLers have begun committing for the long term again. BTC’s fundamentals are gaining momentum, the report stated, both as a disruptive technology and a financial asset.
Adamant Capital, founded by the very influential Tuur Demeester, has published two other similar reports.
