Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD Bearish Pressure Still in Play
Bitcoin is still under some downside pressure after the sharp decline last week, bringing it down to the area of interest in a new descending channel forming. A break below the $3,600 level could bring in more losses. However, the 100 SMA is still above the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the upside. This suggests that there may be a chance for buyers to take over. Then again, the gap between the indicators is narrowing to signal weakening bullish momentum and a potential downward crossover. If so, more sellers could pile on and take the price all the way down to the very bottom at the $3,000 mark or the previous year lows around $3,200. Stochastic is already indicating oversold conditions, though, which suggests that sellers may be exhausted and willing to let buyers take over.

Volume of Crypto is Dropping, is Bitcoin Headed Below $3,000
Home » News » Volume of Crypto is Dropping, is Bitcoin Headed Below $3,000? In the last 48 hours, the volume of the crypto market has dropped from $15 billion to $13 billion as the Bitcoin price fell below the $3,600 mark. Analysts have started to demonstrate concerns regarding the declining volume of digital assets and the potential scenario of cryptocurrencies free falling without significant sell pressure from bears. Generally, traders in the crypto market expect a lackluster year with low volatility, at least until cryptocurrencies escape the last stage of a 12-month-long bear market and initiate a strong accumulation phase.

Why we need Bitcoin
Case for a pending financial collapse is well grounded. ?Ticking time bomb? created by the Fed is set to go off This may be only the start to more mergers within the mining space. Here in the We Market, financial conditions, business prospects and matters of supply and demand don?t much matter; it?s the lifestyle, people, don?t you get it? After laying out the reasoning behind his considerably more pessimistic view on the US economy during his widely watched "Just Markets" podcast, DoubleLine Capital Founder Jeffrey Gundlach - whose flagship Total Return Fund outperformed the benchmark again in 2018 - delved into some of the same themes from his year-ahead podcast this week during a round table discussion hosted by Barron's, during which the legendary bond trader warned that record levels of corporate debt - particularly in the lower-rungs of the investment-grade universe, which has swollen as companies binged on debt to buy back stock during the ZIRP years, could create problems for the equity  market.

Why Cryptocurrencies are the Answer: Lionel Shriver argues that governments can't be trusted not to destroy value and while Bitcoin has problems a stable store of value is much to be desired
The craze for cryptocurrency can be explained by a host of factors: the allure of getting rich quick; the attraction of off-the-grid accountancy for malefactors like tax evaders and drug dealers (though Bitcoin is traceable); the glamour of the new. Despite blockchain currencies? wild volatility thus far, I?d still posit that the more underlying attraction is to a reliable store of value. Bitcoin investors may not recognise their motivation as such, but the impulse behind computer-generated currency is revolutionary: to take the production and control of money away from government. Now that we live in a world of 100 per cent fiat currencies ? backed by nothing ? governments can print their hearts out, and they do. The rounds of quantitative easing since 2008 ? money-printing on Red Bull ? may not seem to have produced the inflation many a conservative economist predicted. But they have. Asset bubbles like London and New York property markets, fine art, collectibles, equities ? hitting historic highs ? and Bitcoin itself are all evidences of inflation. There?s too much money in the world right now, sloshing from investment to investment and bloating every bolt hole one can think of to stash with capital (an unholy proportion of which is founded on debt). Because it costs central banks nothing to turn on the pumps.

Cryptocurrency Miners Sue Washington State Utility Over 50 Percent Rate Hike
A group of nine cryptocurrency companies has filed a lawsuit against Washington State?s Grant County public utility district (PUD) and its commissioners in response to a new phased rate hike that would increase their energy costs by fifty percent. The complaint, which was filed on December 19, 2018, in the U.S. District Court in Spokane, WA, alleges that the Grant PUD and its commissioners acted ?illegally and unconstitutionally? when they voted to enact a new higher rate classification in August of last year. During a meeting held on January 8th, utility officials agreed that Grant PUD would cover the legal defense costs for commissioners Tom Flint, Dale Walker, and Larry Schaapman, former commissioners Terry Brewer and Bob Bernd, and 10 unnamed Grant PUD employees.

Why NEO Co-Founder Erik Zhang Says Ethereum Will Overtake Bitcoin
NEO appears to be losing ground in the popularity contest, at least lately. In the glory days of 2017, the ?Chinese Ethereum? was a top 10 cryptocurrency with unstoppable potential. NEO was touted as being faster, better, and capable of handling way more transactions than other major networks. The hype surrounding the project was palpable. Since its heyday in January 2018 when its market cap was over $10 billion, NEO has slipped to 18th place with a market cap around half that amount. What?s happened to see it fall out of favor? The crypto community may be losing interest in NEO, but its co-founder, Erik Zhang, isn?t losing any sleep.

Japan Not Considering Approval of Bitcoin ETF, FSA Denies Reports
Home » News » Japan Not Considering Approval of Bitcoin ETF, FSA Denies Reports According to a spokesperson from the Financial Services Agency (FSA), Japan is not considering the approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). Speaking to, an FSA representative said: There is no such fact that we are considering approving ETFs which track crypto-assets at present. We are not currently considering approving them. Last week, several sources including Bloomberg reported that Japan is exploring the possibility of approving Bitcoin ETFs as an alternative to Bitcoin futures. The reports led to an increase in anticipation toward the approval of the VanEck Bitcoin ETF filing that is set to be decided by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by the end of February, as the emergence of strictly regulated investment vehicles in a major market like Japan would decrease the risk of price manipulation.

Crypto Market Begins to Fall Rapidly Again: Bitcoin Below $3,500
Home » News » Crypto Market Begins to Fall Rapidly Again: Bitcoin Below $3,500 Bitcoin fell below $3,500 as $5 billion was wiped out of the crypto market, and major digital assets like Ethereum recorded a six percent drop against the U.S. dollar. The 4.8 percent drop in the combined valuation of all cryptocurrencies in the global market comes after a strong sell-off on January 11. On January 12, prior to the three percent drop in the Bitcoin price, a cryptocurrency trader with an online alias ?Hsaka? said that Bitcoin was showing a sign of weakness based on its performance from January 11 to 12. Some thoughts. The first wick below the range low led to a tap of the range high. The second one (this current one) has failed to reach that high as of now. Sign of weakness in my opinion.

New Bitcoin ETF Proposal by Bitwise Aims to Allay SEC Fears
Bitwise has submitted a new Bitcoin ETF proposal to the SEC with new features to allay the government agency?s fears. The march for greater cryptocurrency acceptance marches on, with new businesses accepting virtual currencies every day. However, such progress is still being impeded in the United States by the federal government, notably the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC has continued to deny the launching a Bitcoin ETF. In their latest proposal, Bitwise offers up an ETF that has key features designed to allay the concerns of the SEC. In recently filed paperwork, Bitwise Asset Management has proposed a physically held Bitcoin exchange-traded fund. This new fund is to be the Bitwise Bitcoin Total Return Index, which would track BTC and any ?meaningful? hard forks.
