TRON and the TRON Foundation have made very exciting progress through the start of October and continue to impress the crypto community. Granted, the value of TRX is still stagnant, however this doesn’t have any reflection on the progress of the TRON Foundation. Just because TRX is down low, it doesn’t mean the TRON team aren’t working hard in the background. TRX is down as a result of the bear market and the organic nature of this regressive market. When the markets turn round, we can hope that TRX will be one of the first cryptos to fly high. As it stands though, we can’t even begin to guess when this may happen.
Chart for XRP/BTC (1W)
Ripple (XRP) has defended its 5 Week EMA. This is a clear message to all the critics out there calling Ripple (XRP)’s rally a pump and dump. RSI for the above weekly chart for XRP/BTC does seem to have neared the overbought range. However, there is no sign of a slowdown yet and something bigger is brewing on the bigger picture. The accumulation to distribution ratio on the above chart shows something very interesting. From the beginning of 2018 till mid September we saw a steady decline in accumulation against distribution. However, towards the end of September, we witnessed a trend reversal. Accumulation rose against distribution till it hit resistance and retraced. Currently, the Accumulation/Distribution ratio is in a very good position for another rally.
TokenPay have been on fire recently, making the most of their social media pages to literally lay into their rivals. It’s brave, but if they think they are the best, they might as well try and flaunt it right?
After flogging XRP and NEO very recently, TokenPay have now decided to tap into the Bitcoin debate. Not holding back, TokenPay refer to Bitcoin Cash as slow and expensive, but even more insultingly to the Bitcoin Cash community, TokenPay also seem to disregard Bitcoin Cash and hint that in their eyes, Bitcoin Core is the original and real Bitcoin.
BTC Media’s Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network has added a new show to its lineup, “What Bitcoin Did.” The WBD podcast is hosted by U.K.-based Peter McCormack, an “accidental Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency investor, miner, blogger and podcaster.” His show, an industry interview program, follows important figures and developments in and around the crypto space.
What’s the next level beyond being a cryptocurrency investor? That would be achieving the status of bitcoin entrepreneur.
There’s nothing that sends shock waves through the crypto markets like the prospect of regulation. And there’s also nothing so hard to establish on a global scale. After all, how can you regulate something when you can’t agree on what category it falls into, and when laws vary across jurisdictions and cultures? One Canadian exchange, Coinsquare, is taking an interesting approach that just might prove that in this fast-paced industry, slow and steady wins the race.
Ethereum’s creator has proposed a new fee to help keep the cryptocurrency decentralized.
From wrecking the environment to making it harder to search for alien life, cryptocurrency mining has been blamed for a multitude of sins. But to cause time itself to slow down is a fresh charge and one which, on the surface, sounds impossible. Something strange is happening in Central Europe right now: clocks are running slow, and not by fractions of a second, but entire minutes. Could large scale crypto mining be responsible or is it being made a convenient scapegoat?
As cryptocurrencies rise in popularity and price, they become more of a lucrative target for hackers and cybercriminals. Many of those getting into crypto now are novices to trading and cyber security, and those are the ones at greatest risk of losing their digital stash to hackers.
We’ve already learned last week of malware infecting Facebook’s messenger service on desktops. The software is designed to harness computing power to mine Monero without the user knowing or consenting. This is effectively theft of the victim’s hardware and power resources to profit the attackers. While powerful desktop PCs are a prime target, mining malware has also emerged on mobile phones. So, if yours has slowed down, it could be under attack.
