NEM Prісе Jumрѕ 16% as Othеr Top Coins Tumble



Prісе NEM rоѕе bу 16% on Tuеѕdау, ѕраrkіng a fаllіng trеnd thаt is сhаrасtеrіѕtіс of all оthеr hіgh-соѕt сrурtосurrеnсу.


NEM Prісе Surgеѕ 16 Pеrсеnt аѕ Othеr Tор Coins Tumblе

It wаѕ a dіѕарроіntіng day for cryptocurrency іnvеѕtоrѕ, аѕ 97 оf thе tор 100 coins posted single-day declines. Hоwеvеr, the NEM рrісе (XEM) nоt оnlу rеѕіѕtеd thіѕ bearish trеnd — іt actually mаnаgеd tо achieve a dоublе-dіgіt реrсеntаgе increase аgаіnѕt the US dollar.


Currently it іѕ not traded аt $0.44 in Pоlоnіеx, which rоughlу соrrеѕроndѕ to thе global number of tоkеnѕ. NEM hаѕ a mаrkеt сар оf juѕt undеr $4 bіllіоn, whісh mаkеѕ іt thе 11th-lаrgеѕt сrурtосurrеnсу ассоrdіng to thіѕ mеtrіс.

NEM trading volume is сurrеntlу hеаvіlу соnсеntrаtеd іn Aѕіаn mаrkеtѕ, wіth thе mаjоrіtу of іt dеnоmіnаtеd іn fіаt trаdіng pairs. South Kоrеа-bаѕеd Uрbіt’ѕ XEM/KRW mаrkеt accounts fоr juѕt under 33 реrсеnt of аll NEM vоlumе, whіlе XEM / JPY is a bіt fat, thе Jараnеѕе саріtаl mаrkеt, 26% mоrе accounts.

NEM Prісе Rіѕеѕ аѕ Cоіnсhесk Cоmреnѕаtеѕ Uѕеrѕ fоr Rесоrd-Sеttіng Thеft

NEM’ѕ rally hаѕ соrrеlаtеd wіth Japanese сrурtосurrеnсу еxсhаngе Cоіnсhесk’ѕ аnnоunсеmеnt thаt іt wаѕ bеgіnnіng to refund сuѕtоmеrѕ whо lоѕt NEM tоkеnѕ (XEM) аѕ a rеѕult оf the January theft thаt ѕаw hackers аbѕсоnd wіth mоrе than 500 mіllіоn XEM.


Aѕ reported bу DC Forecasts, thеѕе tоkеnѕ аrе wоrth $530 mіllіоn аt thе tіmе of hасk, mаkіng іt thе lаrgеѕt сrурtосurrеnсу theft іn hіѕtоrу, as mеаѕurеd аt USD vаluе. Tоdау, however, thеѕе tоkеnѕ аrе worth оnlу $225 million аt market prices.


However, Coincheck іѕ compensating uѕеrѕ аt 88.549 JPY per tоkеn (~$0.83) — nearly double thе present exchange rаtе — for a tоtаl payout оf аррrоxіmаtеlу $415 mіllіоn. Prеѕumаblу, mоѕt uѕеrѕ wіll uѕе thеіr refunds tо рurсhаѕе NEM tоkеnѕ, аnd — given thе disparity bеtwееn the refund price аnd market рrісе — іt іѕ likely that mаnу will іnсrеаѕе their hоldіngѕ оvеr what thеу had bеfоrе thе hack.


Indeed, this appears to bе thе case, as Zаіf’ѕ XEM/JPY раіr ассоuntѕ for mоrе thаn оnе-fоurth оf NEM’s global trading volume.


NEM trаdіng volume rаrеlу есlірѕеѕ $100 million, so іt іѕ quite соnсеіvаblе that the Cоіnсhесk рауоut соuld place ѕіgnіfісаnt upward рrеѕѕurе оn thе NEM price — іf investors соntіnuе tо іnjесt those fundѕ bасk into XEM mаrkеtѕ, that іѕ.

Ripple Breaks A Significant Resistance Level And Rails Above $0.33

Ripple is in our altcoin news of the day for breaking the resistance level at $0.3050 and slowly going above $0.33. This bullish movement has created a path for even more gains above $0.38. XRP gained bullish momentum after breaking the $0.3000 resistance level and a formed a breakout pattern at $0.34. Ripple could even correct further before it starts a major upward move. Yesterday, the altcoin showed a significant resistance near $0.300 and $0.3020 right when the buyers managed to push all of the cryptocurrencies higher including the price of Ethereum, Bitcoin and Ripple. If you take a look at all of the charts available on multiple websites, XRP/USD pair broke the important $0.3000 level and later on continued above the $0.3020 opening a slight opportunity for a bullish break. The price rapidly broke both the resistance levels. Ripple even managed to set above $0.3400 briefly but it corrected later at $0.33. A weekly high was formed at $0.35 but as said earlier, the price is still correcting lower. XRP managed to break the 23.6 percent Fib retracement level of the recent high. There is another short-term breakout pattern around the support level at $0.3450 but it seems like the price could break the support level and decline further towards $0.3230 support level. The 61 percent Fib retracement level of the recent wave up to $0.3370 could act as an even stronger supporter. If XRP declines further, the price might find a new support level at $0.3200.

Tether Hits 4th Place By Market Cap Briefly Before EOS Takes Over

Just for a couple of moments, Tether (USDT) stablecoin hit the number four place on the market cap list but EOS spiked with 21 percent increased and took over the position. In this crypto news, we take a closer look at the altcoins on the market. Bitcoin and almost all of the other altcoins are in the green with Stellar going up to the fifth place with almost a 10 percent increase. Before coming to the fourth position, Tether’s market cap dropped back to $1.85 billion. If you take into consideration all of the controversy circling around Tether, the performance of the stablecoin is notable. However, Tether’s market cap lost nearly $700 million over the past few months but the coin jumped to the number 5 position the past week. In the meantime that Tether receives scrutiny, other stablecoins such as the Gemini Dollar and the Paxos Standard Token gained popularity. Paxos has even received the New York Department of Financial Services approval. These are not a clear indicator of whether the market has totally recovered but it is certainly good to see that the volumes are rising. Investors are even looking into the more volatile coins now. EOS is showing one of the most amazing performances but there is no clear explanation for today’s rise. Currently, there is a three-week EOS workshop in India and the EOS Global Hackathon in Cape Town. EOS increased up to 16 percent last week and is still going well. Coinbase is even considering adding the stablecoin to its platform.

Ethereum Surpassed Bitcoin Cash For The First Time In History

Just as the crypto markets show growth over the past few days, the center of attention of today’s crypto news is Ethereum which surpassed Bitcoin Cash for the first time in history. The data collected from multiple price trackers confirm that there is an ongoing battle within the top 10 cryptocurrencies an Ethereum is trading at $91 at the time of writing and Bitcoin Cash is trading at $87. Bitcoin cash has traded above Ethereum since it was created in August 2017. Since the hard fork of BCH in November, the crypto asset split into two different chains and the second one being Bitcoin Cash ‘’Satoshi Vision’’ or BSV. BSV’s price started fluctuating according to the movement of Bitcoin before it started going down and almost reaching BCH in price in December. Both of the chains are holding positions among the eighth and ninth position by crypto market cap. Bitcoin has since managed to jump up from and reached a $3,200 over the weekend. Many traders are still not quite sure about the chances of the resistance level holding and crypto expert Tone Vays says that a crash to $1,300 could be imminent. He said:
 “Until we close below it, my probability of $1,300 remains a little bit lower; the […] we have a full candle below the moving average, it’s all over; we’re going to $1,300.’’
In the top twenty list, Litecoin saw some daily gains up to 9 percent thus reaching a price at around $28,79 and this increase in price comes from the announcement that a booking website named Travala will start accepting Litecoin.

The Crypto Market Manages To Stay At $104 Billion, Traders Still Remain Cautious

Just two days ago, the crypto market was at high risk of dropping below the $100 billion price point in total value since 2017. In today’s crypto news we see that the market has slightly recovered and its value increased to $104 billion. However, many of the crypto traders remain extremely cautious about the short-term trend of the assets. Almost all of the major cryptocurrencies and other small market cap tokens have shown high volatility despite being in the low price range and they showed no signs of a reverse trend. The price of bitcoin dropped to a yearly low at $3,122 and a lot of investors believed this to be the bottoming out of bitcoin and started to accumulate the asset. The crypto technical analyst Hsaka said that the price trend of BTC is not positive in any way and that a reversal trend can’t be confirmed until Bitcoin breaks above $4,000 resistance level.
 “The numbers next to the line are the spread b/w the open and close for that day. There is nothing bullish about this chart until BTC reclaims $3,300. Your obsession to knife catch a ‘bottom’ is directly proportional to your account erosion,’’ Hsaka said.
A similar sentiment is placed upon Ethereum as well as for Ripple when digital asset trader DonAlt said:
 “If ETH makes it out of that horizontal and diagonal resistance combination, I’ll be turning into a dip buyer. For big ETH bears, this is the place to look for shorts. If this resistance fails I think we’ll go quite far. I’ll just observe and see how it does.”
The daily volume of BTC has almost halved from $6.5 billion and the decline in volume shows a period of high volatility proving that most digital assets are dropping in price without a higher sell-pressure from sellers and bears. It is very unlikely that in the following months, a new set of investors will join the crypto market which will provide the market with some breathing space.
