Fake Bittorent Token (BTT) Website Emerges to Scam Investors Fake Bittorent Token (BTT) Website Emerges to Scam Investors
Usually, when a cryptocurrency scam gets reported, it happens after someone has fallen victim to the scam. This time, however, a scam involving the upcoming BitTorrent token sale (BTT) has been discovered before it has had a chance to steal from would-be investors. A short while ago, I got pulled into a Telegram channel called BitTorrent BTT that was claiming to be the official channel. With great fanfare, they announced that the BTT token sale had begun and directed users to the supposed token sale website, BTTLaunchpad.com. On clicking the link, I was taken to a website that is branded to look nearly identical to a page from Binance'sNews section (see screenshot comparison below).

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Long-Term Slide Continuation Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Long-Term Slide Continuation
Bitcoin Cash is still trending lower inside its descending channel but is hovering around the mid-channel area of interest. If this keeps holding as a ceiling, the price could be due to resume its long-term slide. Bitcoin Cash has yet to test the Fib levels on what seems to be a correction, though, so there could still be some upside. The 38.2% level is at the $300 area while the 50% level is closer to $350 and the channel top. The 61.8% retracement level is near the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point, which may be the line in the sand for a pullback. On the subject of moving averages, the 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, the selloff is more likely to resume than to reverse. The 100 SMA is holding as dynamic resistance as well. In that case, BCH could be on track to revisit the swing low or the channel bottom. This piece was obtained by us on 2019-01-16 16:57:41.

Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH/USD Bounce or Break with Constantinople Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH/USD Bounce or Break with Constantinople
Ethereum is testing a major area of interest as traders await the Constantinople upgrade. Price is testing the former resistance turned support level around $120 and could be due for either a bounce to the Fib extension levels or a deeper slide back to the swing low. The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, the climb is more likely to gain traction than for the selloff to carry on. Note that the recent slide was likely due to liquidation ahead of this upgrade after all. Also, the 200 SMA may continue to hold as dynamic support at the area of interest. If it's able to keep losses at bay, Ethereum could climb to the 38.2% resistance at $150 or the swing high near the 61.8% extension of $160. Stronger bullish pressure could take it up to the 78.6% extension at $184 or the full extension at the $200 major psychological level. This entry was obtained by us on 2019-01-15 16:29:01.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD Stronger Bounce Underway Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC/USD Stronger Bounce Underway
Bitcoin managed to keep its head above the key $3,600 barrier but is still facing plenty of nearby resistance levels. After all, this might be a mere pullback from an ongoing downtrend. Theprice is inside a descending channel with its lower lows and lower highs. Support held and a correction to the resistance may be underway. In addition, the Fibonacci retracement tool shows where more bears might be waiting. Bitcoin is closing in on the 38.2% Fib that lines up with the mid-channel area of interest. A larger pullback could last until the 61.8% Fib near the top of the channel, a broken short-term rising trend line, and the $4,000 major psychological mark. If any of the Fibs hold as resistance, the price could slump back to the swing low or the bottom of the channel closer to $3,500. This publication was obtained by us on 2019-01-15 11:02:10.

Estate of Drug Kingpin Pablo Escobar Launches Stablecoin to Fund Trump Impeachment Campaign Estate of Drug Kingpin Pablo Escobar Launches Stablecoin to Fund Trump Impeachment Campaign
The estate of Pablo Escobar has launched a stablecoin to fund the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump. Since the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the political left has been dreaming of getting rid of Donald Trump. Numerous investigations have been launched to prove some form of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but so far, investigators have essentially only found a few people who gave inaccurate testimony and the fact that Trump paid a porn actress for sex 12 years before. However, Democrats have a new ally in their goal of impeaching Trump the estate of notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Even more interesting is that a new cryptocurrency is being used to fund the campaign. This entry was found by us on 2019-01-14 19:06:50.
