  • 07:05 CoinNess Analysis: BTC Is Strong In Short-Term Trading; Altcoins Have Fewer Chances To Perform

    Observing the current market, CoinNess analysts hold that BTC is still the most valuable coin to pay attention to. It is overwhelming no matter in terms of the price increase in short-time trading or impact on the overall market. During the rebound, BTC performed better than the majority of altcoins and its price touched the high position in the short-term trading. So, it shows that funds are running around the BTC, not altcoins. After BTC gained strong momentum in short-time trading, its price did not exceed the former high position of $10,340, which is the reason for the current weak performance. BTC accounted for a huge proportion of market value. Once its price goes up, funds will flow in, which will form pressure for altcoins. We can confirm that most altcoins are in the price adjustment period. With a growing trading volume, coin prices probably will not go downwards. And some coins may create new all-time highs. For instance, OKB and ETH perform better than other coins. Besides, XTZ rose a lot in the short-time trading and will hit a new high in the future. For tactics, traders should be cautious when buying coins which have already had large increases in short-time trading. Do remember not to buy when prices are up and sell when prices go down.

  • 06:38 Coinbase Becomes First ‘Pure’ Crypto Firm Approved As Visa Principal Member

The card has since been made available in 29 markets with 10 cryptocurrencies supported. Principal members of Visa are financial institutions authorized to issue some types of payment cards.
