This US Dollar Fractal Predicts Bitcoin Is on the Verge of a Strong Surge

The common narrative shared over recent months is that Bitcoin is adversely affected by increases in the value of the U.S. dollar. Case in point: when the dollar began to spike in February and March, BTC began to tumble lower, as did the S&P 500 and the price of gold. More recently, when Bitcoin topped in August, the U.S. dollar was in the middle of a dead cat bounce. But over recent days and weeks, the two markets have begun to disconnect. Bitcoin has somewhat flatlined as the U.S. Dollar…

Chainlink Reaches Critical Support as Analysts Forecast a Strong Rebound

Chainlink’s price action has been quite grim as of late, with it facing unusual inflows of selling pressure as investors begin jumping ship. The mass exodus of capital away from the cryptocurrency has caused its price to decline from highs of $20.00 that were set just a matter of weeks ago, to lows of $7.80 tapped earlier today. This is a significant decline and indicates that the previously bullish altcoin’s macro market structure is beginning to degrade. It is important to note that LINK has seen parabolic advances and drawbacks…

Uniswap’s UNI Token Reclaims Crucial Support as Analysts Eye a Macro Bottom

Uniswap’s token (UNI) has been bearing witness to immense volatility throughout the past few days, with its post-launch price action being surprisingly strong – considering that all users of the platform were airdropped a sizeable quantity of tokens. After rallying to highs of $8.50 in the days following its launch, the token has since witnessed massive inflows of selling pressure that brought its price down to lows of $3.75. Bulls have since stepped up and absorbed this selling pressure, pushing it back up towards the $5.00 region as they aim…

Brokers and banks in crypto

Chainlink Correction “Healthy,” But Losing $8 Could Turn Holders Into “Submarines”

No cryptocurrency has outperformed Chainlink over the last two years of the bear market. But like everything that goes up with such powerful momentum, the way back down is almost nearly as strong. In what feels like a flash, Chainlink has already lost a full 60% from the 2020 high at $20 to the recent local low. Thus far, the correction has been “healthy” according to one crypto analyst, but if support is lost at $8, so-called Link Marines will be turned into “submarines” with their holdings underwater. Why Chainlink…

Blockchain tech is helping to reduce the impact of deforestation in Brazil

Major meat processing company JBS S.A., has repeatedly come under fire for allegedly contributing to the illegal deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. They are now using blockchain technology to create a unique solution to the problem.

The company has previously only monitored the final link in the meat supply chain,…

Could holding 0.28 BTC could put you in the 1% wealth bracket?

A large portion of Bitcoin’s (BTC) value lies within its limited 21 million coin supply, which means ownership of a small portion could lead to significant wealth — if mass global adoption occurs.  “There is only 0.0027 BTC for the current 7 billion people,” trader, Bitcoin evangelist, and Twitter personality Davincij15 said in a Sept. 22 tweet, noting the worlds total population in relation to Bitcoin’s total supply. Davincij15 is known for his early Bitcoin commentary, which harkens back to the asset’s early days in 2011. “If you HODL 0.28 BTC, and…
