This was a good market week for the Bitcoin maximalist – a casual 8:00 PM Presidential tweet storm villifying the asset and elevating the cryptocurrency conversation into global policy AND holding its price levels while everything around it spirals downward in double-digits. Not too shabby, BTC, not too shabby.  Bitcoin held its position in an…

Bitcoin continued its growth despite a week of generally negative news for the crypto space, adding another 8.71% growth this week to its 10.35% growth of last week. Other winners on the week include Ethereum (up 2%), Chainlink (39%), ABBC Coin (46.75%), and Arcblock (116%). However, this week’s markets were not all clear skies of…

Well, it was looking like a great week until the New York State Attorney General (NYSAG) filed a lawsuit against Bitfinex. BUT, that doesn’t matter much as the cryptocurrency industry seems to be increasing week after week without a feeling of inevitable bloodshed that laced the bear market of 2018.  Bitcoin grew to about $5,637,…

Bitcoin’s So Highhhhh, High Above Me We’re starting to run out of puns for this consistent market growth. But, we guess that’s a good problem to have. Growing to over $179 billion this week, the entire crypto market moved three and a half percent in the positive direction. Cryptocurrency Market Stats (4/19/19) Some of the…

Will Bitcoin ever replace fiat? This question has made the rounds on more than just a few online forums, mostly cryptocurrency related, admittedly. The debate is real and the opponents are often programmers versus armchair economists. Fiat, or government-backed currency, has been a feature of city-states, kingdoms, and countries now for over a thousand years….

Bitcoin on the Streets, Monero in the Sheets The good news keeps on rolling in. After a brief dip in the middle of the week, the total market cap consistently climbed to finish off at $143.3B. Calculating from last Friday’s cap of $140.4B, the market grew a healthy two percent this week. And, several coins…

South By Southwest is a hotbed for the cross-pollination of ideas, which is exactly what the cryptocurrency industry needs. In that same vein, SXSW 2019 was a ball of organized chaos, where attendees bounced around a wide variety of talks, company-sponsored bar tabs and themed bars, and meetings for a “quick cup of coffee or…

Keep On Headin’ Up The steady positive momentum continues this week as the market breaks above $140B. The market cap reached $142B before suddenly dropping on Thursday. But, we still saw two and a half percent growth over the week. The majority of altcoins stayed in the single-digits while Ontology (31.58%), Tezos (71.61%), and Ravencoin (61.87%)…

Climbin’  Another week in the green for the cryptocurrency market. Dare we say, “The bear market is over?” With a couple of dips along the way, the total market cap grew from $133.8B to $137.4B this week – almost three percent growth. A few altcoins had impressive weeks as well. Stellar (22.09%), Cardano (17.59%), and…

Slow Bleeding Bitcoin Another disappointing week in cryptocurrency with the entire market losing around five percent in the 7-day timeframe. Altcoins were in a sea of red with only Litecoin (0.22%), Holo (22.33%), and some stablecoins showing any positive movement. Like the rest of the market, the top three cryptocurrencies underperformed as well. Cryptocurrency Market…

“We are tired of people asking us about target prices.” This was Tom Lee towards the end of 2018., the co-founder of Fundstrat Global Advisors and one of the most prominent cryptocurrency price analysts. He famously predicted Bitcoin would end 2018 at $25,000. Despite Lee’s claim to fame being his ability to predict stocks and…

Going…Going…Down… What started as a positive week, ended in disappointment for cryptocurrency prices. On Saturday, the market cap jumped over $3 billion in less than an hour. However, the positive momentum was short-lived. The following day, the market lost nearly $5 billion (~3.8 percent) in about the same amount of time. Over the week, the…

Mr. Crypto’s Wild Ride Looking at the starting and ending market caps of this week, you may think that it was a relatively uneventful seven days. The market shed less than two percent of value, placing the total market cap at around $122B. However, the middle of the week saw the market plummet nearly five…

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019 The new year rang in with a quiet week in cryptocurrency, all things considered.

The week ended with a total cryptocurrency market cap of just shy of $129B –…

Until Next Year… Every week can’t be a good week. After showing early signs of a rally over the middle/end of December, the market’s been tumbling since Christmas Eve. Since reaching a weekly high of about $146.5B on Monday, the total market cap has dropped 17 percent and currently rests at just over $121.5B. Cryptocurrency…

You can count on it. Whenever a major financial market struggles for survival in a deep, enduring bear market, undertakers with access to the financial press gleefully pronounce its imminent demise. For Bitcoin, such dire pronouncements have been arriving at a steady pace since summer 2018. Simultaneously, plenty of big names in the financial world envision…

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have demonstrated the application of blockchain technology for new forms of money and currency. They store transactions as digital packs of data within blocks. However, there is no reason this data cannot extend beyond financial data. In theory, any form of data can be stored on a blockchain. Over the past several…

Bitcoin mining difficulty is falling thanks to the digital coin’s underlying blockchain technology. If trends persist, small miners should be able to take advantage of this latest development. Right now, the bitcoin market is going through trying times after the unprecedented price decline that occurred in November. It saw bitcoin drop in value and breach…


The Market Giveth and the Market Taketh Away The cryptocurrency market had a serious identity crisis this week.
