Top 10 Cryptos

At the moment of writing top 10 assets were all in green, following a Bitcoin rebound above $9,000.

Although consistent, the gains don't make up for the last week losses, keeping the market still bearish.


At the moment of writing, STEEM was trading, on average, at $2.56 on Coinmarketcap, up from yesterday.

On Bittrex, the 30 minutes chart shows another attempt to break over 28k satoshis, followed by a correction back to 26.5k satoshis

The 1 hour chart shows the failed breakup kept the price in the same 26k-28k corridor.

The 1 day chart is showing a very small green candle with an upper week, which can be read as: "consolidation on a bear trend".

SBD was trading, at the moment of writing, at $2.60 on average, up from yesterday. The 30 minutes chart on Bittrex shows the same breakout like on STEEM chart (and it's probably the cause of that one too).

The 1 hour chart shows that the spike somehow managed to keep the price just a tad higher than before.

The 1 day chart shows a very small rebound, on insignificant volume:

SBD to STEEM Ratio

At the moment of writing, according to, you could buy 1 STEEM with 1.016 SBD, slightly up from yesterday but basically at parity.

Overall opinion: Markets rebounded strongly during the weekend, but they're taking a flat turn now. SBD rose slightly above STEEM again, while both currencies are maintaining their current value in Bitcoin and appreciating slightly in fiat.

It Help full but not enough that you upvote it, I think its to much helpfull

I'm sure that STEEM price will eventually rise, but if some problems aren't solved (the main trending page looks like a battle between whales not an actual posts) I don't think steemit could last that way.

It's always interesting to look at the market after the weekend, and I'll be keeping a keen eye on how things develop over the next 24-48 hours as people start to trade more frequently again. I'm eager to grab some discounted Steem before the next bull run.

Coming back down slightly hopefully will be in this price range for long
