  • 17:54 CoinNess.com Market Analysis on Jan 20: BTC Faces Robust Defiance at the $3700 Level, Plunged to the $3500

    Over the last 24 hours, the price of Bitcoin rapidly revived from $3,600 to $3,770. The entire rally continued under a half hour, implying that it was the automated tradings bots who fueled the pump.
    The price of Bitcoin (BTC) then stood at the $3,700 level, which has been a prevailing resistance level since Jan 10. On January 20, Bitcoin moved down, all the way from $3,700 to $3,470 and had since then recovered to $3,546.66, according to CoinNess.com Market Index. Overall, Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped by 4.28 per-cent in the past 24 hours.
    It appears that $3,500 is the support level to watch and $3,700 is the key resistance level, and these levels have been dominant for ten days. It is possible that the crash on Jan 20 is related to the CME Bitcoin futures contract, which expires on Jan 25.
    Bitcoin's (BTC) price usually declines in the days leading up to a CME futures contract expiration. This pattern happens due to a practice called banging the close, where futures traders manipulate an asset to crash right before expiration to increase short-selling profits. For a fact, January has been dominated by short sellers, with short positions likely taken out at the $3,900 level just after the December futures contract expired.

  • 15:41 Follow-Up on Post BCH Hash-War

    Two months have passed after the BCH hard fork on November 16, 2018. CoinNess.com has summarized the recent developments of BCH and BSV. Before the hard fork, the price ratio of BCH and BTC is 0.075:1. As of now, the price of BCH and BSV combined is 0.055 of BTC price, a 25% fall after the hard fork. The hashrate of BCH has also shrunk by 25%. The price and hashrate are two major components to evaluate the performance of a cryptocurrency and its community consensus. As we can tell from that, both BCH and BSV are impoverished after the war.
    Post-War BHC
    Backed by the majority of exchanges and the Coinmarketcap, BCHABC won the BCH logo. Bitmain, Roger Ver, JIANG Zhuoer are the prominent supporters of BCH. However, since the market went bear, Bitmain has been having a rough time. Bitmain laid off employees in large scale in December 2018; and closed its Israeli research center established in 2016. Bitmain Amsterdam office was closed in January 2019. The IPO, applied in September 2018, which has called extensive attention, has gone silent. According to the Bitmain's IPO prospectus, 1/3 of its assets are in cryptocurrencies and BCH is a major part of the company's crypto assets. The plunge due to the Hash War has led billions of dollars asset shrunk in Bitmain.
    BCH Development Team
    The BCH developers have revealed a new project that would allow a Bitcoin Cash-based bi-directional payment channels. However, this proposal draws two major uncertainties. The IPFS has not yet launched its mainnet, and bi-directional payment channel contradicts with BCH's original idea of "bigger blocks, faster transactions and lower transaction fee."
    The team also announced Xthinner; the scaling protocol which they claim to compress blocks by 99%. This proposal is still under discussion in the community. But if the team were successful, it would be a significant improvement for the BSV blocks stability and speed.
    Post-War BSV
    BSV gave up the BCH logo and started with another name as 'Bitcoin SV'. The team revealed the new logo and a light wallet - Electrum SV. Main supports of BSV are Craig Steven Wright, nChain, CoinGeek. The performance of nChain wasn't so bad so far. The company has been granted a patent approved by the European Patent Office in December 2019.
    BSV Development Team
    CoinGeek has spent 50 million and won the right to launch its token system 'Tokenized' on BSV chain. Its direct competitors are BCH Wormhole protocol and Ethereum.
    Teranode is an institutional supernode, a collaboration project between CoinGeek and nChain. The project was revealed in May 2018. It is no longer applicable for BCH after the Hash War. Teranode is also a scaling plan to support transactions of international companies.
    It is very much clear that BSV technologies are targeting the business and institutional levels.
    CoinNess.com Market Index: BCH, $120.72, -5.28%; BSV, $73.87, -2.98%.
