Online Retailers Are Rushing Into Crypto: Start Of A Mass Adoption?

Published

on

online retailers

The real world crypto adoption is booming, as many new announcements show. Despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) is still struggling in the $8,000 region and altcoins are following the lazy moves, the latest cryptocurrency news feature analysts saying that online retailers are making the move towards global adoption of crypto.

It all started earlier this month when Crypto.com made their Pay Checkout plugin available for WooCommerce merchants. According to the reports on the website, the plugin on WooCommerce can cover up about 30% of the world’s online stores.

Meanwhile, the payments and privacy coin Dash (DASH) also announced partnerships with a number of payment providers and online retailers that have millions of users. One of them was Overstock.com.

Some of France’s largest online retailers are also planning to accept Bitcoin in 2020, and the recent Bitcoin news showed that you can officially buy BTC from a 7-Eleven store in the Phillippines. Iceland is also moving up the ladder as one firm just settled a payment from IKEA using the Ethereum blockchain.

All of this suggests that online retailers see crypto as a big thing – and a break that could allow them to prosper in a different way. However, the reality is that crypto retail is still in its early stages.

According to an April 2019 research paper written by Nicole Jonker of the De Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam, we should not get ahead of ourselves and online retailers should be careful accepting payments like these. “Acceptance of crypto-payments [by online retailers] is modest,” she wrote. Only 2% of the 768 online retailers in Netherlands accepted payments in crypto.

In the midst of an ongoing adoption, some analysts took to Facebook’s upcoming stablecoin and were featured in the Libra coin news for stating that this coin could be the key to adoption. As Jonker’s report concludes:

“But there is substantial interest among online retailers to adopt them, and acceptance may rise once certain (perceived) barriers are lowered.”

According to Eric Anziano who is the COO of Crypto.com, Libra has played a huge role in increasing customer adoption.

“It was a high-profile announcement that, along with [a] partnership with retailers like Lyft and Uber, drew the attention of retailers who were “not sure” previously,” he noted. “While Libra has faced significant concerns from regulators, it has helped draw more attention to crypto as a viable payments alternative for consumers and e-commerce merchants.”

BTC May Dip Below $7,000 Before Post-Halving Rally: Analyst

Published

By

btc may dip
One analyst named Tone Vays recently claimed that BTC may dip to lower regions before the halving event after which it is expected to visit new heights. According to Vays and his statement in the latest crypto news, BTC may dip below $7,000 before the mining reward halving.
“At the moment, I still see lower prices,” Vays noted in an interview with Block TV. “I still think we’re going to go lower than USD 7,000 before the halving. But after that, that would be the final secondary low. Hopefully it’ll be higher than the USD 3,000 low back in December. And then we can finally start a bull market after the halving.”
If the analyst is right, this means that BTC may dip and may drop pretty soon as the Bitcoin halving is expected to happen in May 2020. While the halving price has always been factored, there are still spikes. If the price of the most dominant coin falls, there will be another hype cycle going into the halving.
“It’s all about the proximinty of the halving and where the price is,” the analyst said when he told the media that BTC may dip lower.
Vays does not think that BTC will hit its all-time high in 2020 - in a year from now he sees it a bit over $10,000. Nonetheless, once the barrier of $20,000 is broken, $50,000 and $100,000 can follow "pretty quickly" but it won't be next year he said.The analyst also said that BTC may dip and that he was skeptical about BTC's recent rally when it hit new heights. Many pressured and said that BTC will keep rising - but the analyst notes that he knew that the big run up was "caused by the exodus out of the old coin space, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) – and eventually that stopped.The latest Bitcoin news updates show that the leading cryptocurrency is below $8,200 and trading slowly. When it comes to external factors, the analyst said that Facebook's “Libra is not a competitor to BTC” and China does not drive the market much.
“Maybe an ETF (exchange-traded fund) is actually coming. Things like that are very, very bullish for the space – the more comfortable traditional financial markets are with Bitcoin [and] the more regulated products that appear, the better it actually is for the price of Bitcoin,” concludes Vays.

Bitcoin Could Reach $100k By 2021: Logarithmic Regression Method

bitcoin could reach
There are tons of predictions about the price of the leading cryptocurrency in the coming months. Some Bitcoin news updates even show that BTC could go to as low as $5,000 before surging and others believe that Bitcoin is on a good way to visit the $100,000 region. One analyst is in our news today for his thorough logarithmic regression method which analyzes BTC from the start and shows that Bitcoin could reach a price of up to $100,000 by 2021.Even big firms are joining the price predictions. As we shared in another post, Dan Morehead, Tom Lee and others are estimating Bitcoin to visit anywhere from $150,000 to $300,000 in the coming years.However, one of the most interesting is a recent video uploaded to YouTube by Benjamin Cowen, where the analyst outlines a Bitcoin price prediction based on logarithmic regression. What's important to note here is that even though Bitcoin could reach $100,000 in as little as two years form now, this is basically a trend that was found and a trend which has continued over the years.So, the main conclusion behind this video is that it can be true and Bitcoin could reach even more than $100,000 - only if the trend continues. The analyst is also active on Twitter and known under the handle @intocryptoverse.He carefully goes on to analyze Bitcoin from the start and shows interesting margins especially before, during and after halving events which he sees as a major catalyst for a Bitcoin bull run. Based on this, he belives that Bitcoin may visit a price of $141,173 by 2022 and a bottom of $29,799 in 2023 as a result of a correction - something that we also saw when BTC dropped from $20,000 to $5,000 at the end of 2017 and start of 2018.So, while it is true that Bitcoin could reach a price of $100,000 in the near future, it is also true that it may break - just as it did so far. When seeing "the big picture," you can certainly investigate the previous drops and see which events led to them.In that manner, this analysis is perfect and illustrates the path of Bitcoin over the years and its price movement with the halving events and other changes.

Future Ethereum Dips Are A ‘Must-Buy’ For One Analyst

Published

By

eth support
We have been covering Ethereum's price action in our ETH news section over the past couple of days. As you know, the price of the biggest altcoin has been closely tracking the one of Bitcoin in recent times, leading it to experiencing some bearishness overnight as the cryptocurrency now nears the lower $180 region. However, one analyst believes that all future Ethereum dips before the Istanbul hard fork are an opportunity that must be capitalized.The truth is, the bearishness of Ethereum will likely change, analysts are noting. Each of the price dips is worthy of being bought, which comes about as ETH's Istanbul hard fork quickly approaches.At the time of writing, ETH is trading down by roughly 1% at its current price of $182 which marks a new retrace from the daily highs of $187 that were set two days ago. The momentum looks lost and ETH's slight sell off has come in the $180 region which proved to be a support region for the cryptocurrency.According to the analyst named TraderXO, all future Ethereum dips prior to the Istanbul hard fork are an opportunity that must be seized and capitalized. As long as ETH keeps holding above the key support region, he said that "any substantial dip is a buy" for him.https://twitter.com/TraderX0X0/status/1194776025974087682Another popular analyst with a handle @GalaxyBTC pointed out that this time of the year is typically a volatile one for Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. However, he thinks that this volatility will favor Ethereum's bull action.
“That time of the year when $ETH pumps so hard people thinking is going to take over BTC is coming again,” he explained.
https://twitter.com/galaxyBTC/status/1194994911860469771What's interesting is the fact that there may be future Ethereum dips before the hard fork - but now traders are wondering if the analysts are right - and if they should see them as potential buying opportunities.All in all, the coming few hours and days will definitely play a huge role in determining Etheruem's future trends as any sustained bullishness in the near term could spark the next major uptrend. For now, ETH is locked at $182 and just like the rest of the market and the altcoin news today, looks sluggish and lazy.

Bitcoin Is On The Edge After Rejection At $8,800: Analysis

Published

bitcoin is on the
The price of Bitcoin is on the edge of a new rejection after the previous 'stop' put at $8,800 which also triggered a new downward run. As one analyst said, the selling pressure rejected an attempt for BTC to break through $9,000.Chart data shows that BTC/USD is suddenly moving upwards on Friday and has hit $8,800 in minutes from previous levels closer to $8,550. However, the Bitcoin news now show that this bullish momentum failed to last and BTC returned to lower levels below $8,600 just thirty minutes after this.At press time, the Bitcoin price is set around $8,580 and has come full circle in under an hour. Big media outlets in the latest cryptocurrencies news report that the dominant cryptocurrency has become increasingly known for its temporary moves up and down, and Bitcoin is on the edge right now with many factors influencing the volatility.In the long term, however, some models suggest that the largest cryptocurrency should fluctuate around an average price of $8,300 until the block size halving which is set to happen next May.Meanwhile, the rejection at $8,800 lifted hopes of a new return to the overall bullish sentiment as analysts noted. Michael van de Poppe was one of them, writing the following on his Twitter profile:
“On the edge here. Preferably I'd want to see a tick up to like $8,800 to confirm a slight trend reversal (like scenario)."
The analyst continued and added that downward pressure is what could take Bitcoin on the other side of the pre-halving average.
“If not, this slow bleed could accelerate to $8,200 as the next level. Sentiment; fear. Obviously,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the latest altcoin news show that a return to the mixed trading positions is right now happening while Bitcoin is on the edge. After many major cryptocurrencies lost ground on Thursday, in today's update we can see that Tezos (XTZ), Cosmos (ATOM) and Cardano (ADA) are the three altcoins in the market cap which are surging by 7.50%, 5% and 2% respectively.The market cap has lost one billion compared to yesterday's levels and the 24 hour volume is short of $70 billion. What's interesting is the fact that Bitcoin's dominance is now at 65.9% which is another low as Bitcoin is on the edge of a reversal.
