Bitcoin Reflections: Key Levels Approaching

Bitcoin had another good week with positive news coming in and price continuing to climb. Whether we are reaching levels too fast is another story. The asset definitely has the momentum it needs to break through some key levels and escape out of the bear trend which is still intact. 
 
This week we will begin our reflections from a technical perspective and spend the latter part of the piece on the major news of the week. Looking forward to your feedback.

Technical Levels

 
Another week of upwards movement for Bitcoin. During the week we saw multiple retests of the 13EMA line that we have been following closely. The level acted as key support and we continued to see an upward trend. We are now approaching the 200d Moving Average yet again. This is going to be the second retest of the level. The last one was in the final week of April 2018. We didn't manage to break through it last time. This time we also have the psychological barrier of $10,000 which is at the...

Bitcoin Reflections: Summer Rally Time?

Exuberance is back in the air. Twitter is filled with “Alts are back” meme’s. After a painful start of the year, the last 2 weeks have been a welcome change. The newswires have turned positive and more importantly there were some regulatory steps announced. These are critical for main stream adoption and getting the necessary regulations passed on a government level. Listed below are some of these pieces of news and stories this week.

Approaching $400bn Marketcap

Let’s break down how quickly things have turned around over the last 2 weeks. To give some context we started the month at a marketcap of around $250-260bn. 
Every rally seemed to be short lived was quickly stopped before it gathered any momentum. That all changed on the 13th of April when bitcoin clocked in record volume. 
This jump represents a 50%+ jump in marketcap over the last week. That should give readers an idea of how quickly things can change in the space. Last week we shared...

Bitcoin Reflections: 17th March 2018

bitcoin coinbase google ico Mar 17, 2018

Another difficult week in the world of Bitcoin as it broke a key technical support level. This fits into our thesis from last week where there was a slew of negative news that had caused Bitcoin to break down. 

Bitcoin this last week had a lot important news that had large impacts on price.

1. Google ban on cryptocurrency ads

One of the big news that started off the week on a negative note was Google coming out and saying that it would be banning all crypto related ads on it's network. The last time Facebook issued the similar stance price fell 12%. Similarly we saw a large sell off take place when the news was announced this week. A majority of these ads are usually by large ICO's and large exchanges that aggressively advertise. By reducing two major awareness on-ramps, this limits both new money being invested in the major currencies as well as ICO's. This ban will go in effect from June 2018.

2. Coinbase has turned over details for 13,000 US citizens to the IRS

Getting Started with Bitcoin and Ethereum

- Getting a Head Start In a Brave New Financial World

Last week I kicked off a post sharing what I understand about Bitcoin and the Blockchain as well as the advantages that it could potentially bring to revolutionise our financial system. Today however, I would like to help you get a quick start to buying your first Bitcoin and its close cousin Ethereum.

Similar to Bitcoin, Ethereum is also an alternative open-source blockchain platform that implements a key feature absent in the Bitcoin blockchain – smart contracts. Having this additional feature allows Ethereum to be used for much wider applications. Ethereum as a platform developed from The DAO project (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation) meant to provide a generic decentralized business model for enterprises. It has its own cyptocurrency known as Ether (ETH).
