Tezos Price Rises By 10% Reaching A New Five-Month High

Published

tezos price

Tezos price spiked over the weekend starting a positive movement after multiple rough sessions at the beginning of the week. As the altcoin news show, the XTZ altcoin reached a market cap of $790 million.

The Tezos price compared to the dollar exchange rate shows a 10 percent increase by establishing an intraday high at $1.19. The USD/XTZ pair found a slight support level and it is the same one from the Bitcoin Cash forking even in November. The price did drop only to find a bottom area around the $0.34 price point. After the strong rebound, the XTZ value was brought back to $1.19 for the second time in one week.

If a break above the $1.19 level happens, this could boost the Tezos price in the near term. The volume distribution on the market looks extremely concentrated on new altcoins. Overall, the XTZ-pairs show a solid $5.69 million worth of trading over the past 24 hours. BitMax, for example, was a host for more than 35.65 percent of those trades mainly against Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, as previously reported in our latest cryptocurrency news, the exchange has a reputation of faking the volumes.

It is possible to assume that the Tezos price could find an intraday uptrend and spike further to influence the overall crypto market trend. Over the past 24 hours, most of the crypto assets were trading in green. For example, Bitcoin increased by 2.55 percent against the dollar while Ethereum and Stellar followed.

The Minister of Finance of France Bruno Le Maire explained that the Tezos blockchain is superior to its peers. He was also speaking to an audience at the Paris Blockchain Week Summit making bold predictions about the Tezos price as well. He pointed out:

 “France has some nuggets on the entire value chain of new services to companies, hardware, and protocols. I am thinking in particular of Tezos and which allows the development of a blockchain protocol overcoming the known defects of public blockchains.”

The Tezos price was already improving after the partnership with Coinbase crypto exchange. Both of the companies now allow institutional investors to ear passive rewards. San Francisco-based Coinbase even promised up to 6.6 percent yearly returns to the investors.

Iran Revealed The Plan Of Launching Its Own Gold-Backed Cryptocurrency

iran revealed
Iran revealed the plan to unveil its own gold-backed cryptocurrency days after the president of the United States slammed bitcoin and the entire idea of crypto. In today’s altcoin news we analyze the new cryptocurrency of the country. The gold that is kept in reserve by Iran’s central bank will back the value of the tokens on the blockchain of the new central bank cryptocurrency. The crypto will be mined by small, private Iranian tech companies. This idea could further complicate the problems between the United States and the Middle Eastern countries. According to the reports by Merh News, the Central Bank of Iran has provided permission for the new crypto to be unveiled so the CEO of FANAP Shahab Javanmardi revealed:
 “The Iranian cryptocurrency is backed by gold but its function is similar to foreign rivals. The domestically encrypted money is to ease optimal use of Iranian banks’ frozen resources.”
Iran revealed the plan but it still far from clear. The multiple authorities in the different agencies issued contradictory statements so they seem confused and uncertain how to approach the new crypto currency and how to regulate it as the financial authorities in the United States do. The FANAP CEO urged the government to continue with the clampdown on bitcoin in the country since the authorities seized more than 1,000 bitcoin mining rigs in the Yazd province. The Iranian government could lose the battle against bitcoin mining in the country since the petrol nation is a paradise for those who make good money out of it mainly because of the low electricity costs. As of this year, more than 70 percent of the central banks around the world started working on digital currency and Iran’s central bank joined in. In Venezuela, President Maduro launched a state-backed cryptocurrency by oil in 2018 and he later ordered the central bank of the country open trading desks for the Petro cryptocurrency. Singapore’s bank didn’t launch a full-blown cryptocurrency but did however issue tokens of its national fiat currency which is based on the Ethereum private blockchain as noted in the latest cryptocurrency news before.

New Crash Of $35 Billion Makes BTC Revisit Four Figures

Published

New Crash
A new crash of $35 billion is in the latest cryptocurrency news, leading the market to a downward trend. The crash shows that Bitcoin lost thousands and was forced to visit the $9,000 regions. The weekend has been a long and painful one for BTC and crypto assets as the markets continue to bleed out - and a whopping $35 billion has been dumped from the total crypto market capitalization, erasing the growth of BTC and altcoins from last week. In the new crash, Bitcoin slid by 10% but its dominance remained high at over 65%. The altcoin news show that a lot of cryptocurrencies are bleeding out. The BTC dominance levels definitely paint a sad picture for altcoins this morning. During the Sunday trading session, BTC could not manage to hold ground above $11,000 and fell back into the tens. However, the major selloff was not there until Bitcoin finally fell back into four figures, trading below $9,900. The good thing now is that Bitcoin managed to correct a bit and is now above $10,000 and at five figures again. Still, the new crash made the market lose $35 billion which is more than 10% of the entire market cap - overnight. Since BTC is up by 175 this year, analysts are not that pessimistic about the coin. However, the popular trader and analyst Josh Rager was featured by many best cryptocurrency news sites for his stance in which he says that Bitcoin often makes moves like these and yesterday was no different.
“And there’s the dump right before the daily close. Typical price action for $BTC near important levels is a pump or dump right before or after the daily/weekly close. This certainly sets up the daily and weekly to close bearish. And will likely focus on shorting any rally,” he said in a tweet.
The weekly candle closed heavy and ignited the new crash further. As BTC tested the 50 day moving average which is currently serving as a level of support, all signals are indicating a continuation of this correction. So, Bitcoin visiting the $8,000 region is definitely a possibility - but Rager added that even like this, four figure BTC is a gift.
“Said it once and will say it again, 4 digit Bitcoin is a gift, whether it hits $9ks or even $8ks," he concluded.
In the coming altcoin news, we can see that the new crash and Bitcoin retreat has hurt the altcoins even more, with some of them losing as much as 20% of their value.

Tether Minted 5 Billion USDT By Mistake – And Immediately Burned Them

Published

tether minted
The stablecoin operator Tether is in the coming altcoin news for accidentally minting and subsequently burning 5 billion in USDT tokens. A Twitter profile named Whale Alert showed that Tether minted 5 billion USDT by mistake in a tweet published on July 13. https://twitter.com/whale_alert/status/1150161710587764737 Commonly known in the crypto community because of the reports linked to moved funds, Whale Alert is a Twitter account dedicated to reporting large cryptocurrency transactions. As the profile noted, 50 million USDT tokens were transferred from the cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex to the Tether Treasury via the Omni protocol on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain. The account subsequently reported that Tether minted 5 billion USDT on the Tron blockchain which is why it burned them afterwards. After that, Tether minted another 50 million USDT on the same chain and burned another 4.5 billion USDT. Finally, Tether transferred 50 million Tron-based USDT tokens to a wallet that presumably belonged to Poloniex.
"Official news is that the amount printed should be have been 50M as part of a swap from Omni to Tron Tether. This was corrected by burning the full amount in two subsequent transactions," the Twitter profile of Whale Alert added later on.
In a tweet, the CTO of Tether Paolo Ardoino explained that Tether meant to perform a swap of 50 million Omni-based USDT tokens to the Tron blockchain. However, a mistake was made with the decimals which is how Tether minted something extra and why they burned these coins.
"While preparing the issuance for Omni to Tron swap there have been an issue with the token decimals. Please check the burn transactions below," he noted.
https://twitter.com/paoloardoino/status/1150164876138037249 The cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex confirmed this in a tweet, stating:
“Paolo is correct - this occurred while Poloniex was conducting a USDT chain swap with the help of Tether. An incorrect amount of USDT was accidentally minted, and this has since been resolved to the intended value.”
As many best cryptocurrency news sites reported earlier this week, the New York based Metropolitan Commercial Bank shut down the accounts associated with Tether. The bank reportedly closed the accounts after a request last year. The altcoin news today show a lot of red on the market and a market cap that lost more than $30 billion overnight, dropping to a new point at $278 billion.

Dogecoin Surged 40% After Binance Exchange Listing

Published

dogecoin surged
Dogecoin surged by more than 40 percent after it was listed on the Binance exchange earlier today so in the latest cryptocurrency news, we read more about the price action of the coin. Despite the sarcasm behind the creation of the coin, Dogecoin surged post-Binance listing. The technology behind the coin is legitimate despite being created just for fun. Nowadays, the coin is widely used across the community for tipping and micropayments and is even gaining more traction with the latest announcement. The major crypto exchange noted that Dogecoin will be available for trading and the CEO of the exchange Changpeng Zhao tweeted:
‘’This one is an exception, as there isn't much new tech development (I guess it was never about the tech for this one). The users/community is large, and a famous "ex-CEO" (cough @elonmusk) helps!’’
Right after Musk’s famous comment, Coinbase added Dogecoin and made it accessible for all crypto newbies and experienced traders which further validated the coin’s legitimacy. The price did, however, drop from its high of $0.045 to $0.0035 but the Google searches for the coin spiked and news erupted in almost every crypto media outlet out there. The real question is whether this media attention helped dogecoin or injured the cryptocurrency and the entire economy. The crypto universe is still relatively small so any media attention is deemed useful for gaining traction for new users. This is why Dogecoin’s history behind it should not make a difference in terms of the current value. Cryptokitties for example also showed that the blockchain technology can be used to create games and apps so no matter the reason for its creation, it still has a huge impact on developers and investors and increased the drive towards mass crypto adoption. Despite the current use of Dogecoin in tipping and micropayments, it is still relatively hard for the cryptocurrency to grow out of the name it created for itself. The coin is still perceived as a joke and this doesn’t really help it become the worthy leader for the greater crypto economy. The current listing is still not enough for some investors to be reassured of the fears that burden cryptocurrencies such as volatility, security and headline risks. As noted in the altcoin news previously, some speculated that dogecoin and other projects will help the crypto economy in the long run towards mass adoption.
