On Bittrex , the 30 minutes chart is showing a small descending channel hitting resistance at 32k satoshis

The 1 hour chart puts the downtrend in perspective: if the 32k level won't hold, there's a lot of room to go down

The 1 day chart shows that the gains of the last week are still above the unfolding correction

Markets look stable, making strong base for bull run....

STEEM and SBD always seem to spike, then pull back slowly. This was true in the bull market and during the recent pullback.

It'd be nice to see both, or either on a steady (what I'd call "strong") rise, where day after day they were rising - even if only a little.

The spikes feel like pumps, which considering the community & activity on the blockchain (and generally good ratings from outside agencies) doesn't add up for me.

I'm confident in the platform, especially long-term (and I'm not overly concerned about price), but it'd sure be nice to see the market performance showing some sustained strength.


We did have some of this patterns you mention at the end of last year, mostly related - probably - to new players entering the system, combined with some positive news about the advancement of the platform (the announcements of AppBase and SMT, specifically).

I agree that recent rises looks like pumps, which I find especially true about SBD. Given its very small market cap it was -again, probably - taken for a ride by some speculators.

Yea they are sure holding relatively well which is a good thing. And btc is also trying so hard not to go below the $8000 Mark.

Yep, thats correct, they are still holding well after the correction. Hodl all the way

Even that in the end of the days there is no much of a change in the rate , the market was very interesting yesterday and for some part the prices went up very strong , i assume we will have a green day today

Happy Monday @dragosroua! Thanks for the daily update!

Hello Dragos!
Since we are talking about the Market i want to ask you about jsecoin. As you notice as well we all have been rewarded with 2000% of the coins that we were holding and the mining as well from 0.05 to 1.
Is this a sign that the coin will be ranked very low in the market? I notice on their whitepaper that 1jsecoin will be 1 usd but still all this major changes... what do you think?
As well i hope you are not going to see what i am writting now as a spam but if you have time take a look on my page as i am writting about a new coin PRE which is a search engine on the blockchain and rewards the users for their searches... i think it's a very interesting project that you will find interesting!
Take care have a great week and looking forward to read your answer about the changes with jsecoin!


Re: JSEcoin modifications is just a move of the decimal point, it doesn't affect the supply. It is explained in one of their blog posts: I don't see how this will impact the token now, when it's not even listed.

As for PRE, looks interesting, I'll try to have a look later on.


Thanks a lot for the link... everything is very well explained on their blog. Glad to see that this will not affect the supply!
Looking forward to see the coin listed then the time will come...

BTC will cross 10K soon in 2 or 3 days.


Any insider info? Or just wishful thinking? :)

Hope to see BTC break 8,300 today this can take the market up very strong

9800 is going to be the next resistance for BTC...

Bitcoin seem to be back in the bull behaviour but need to test out the upward channel again :)

Steem seems to be holding steady for now. At least it's higher than it was recently. We just need to avoid complacency as Steemit has some issues that need to be addressed. I plan to write about that soon.

Top currencies tend to hold their position at the start of week...
I guess overall market sentiment is neutral...It could go on either side:)

A little down in sbd can still be accomodated hopefully it would rise again soon. All in all it looks like a good day

Thanks for the update @dragosrua. BTC looking up! Can't wait for alts to rally up too...esp STeem.

The Bitcoin market is going very well, hopefully it will continue and will be able to cross 20 thousand dollars in a few days, which will be very beneficial for us. As Bitcoin and CryptCarconi are connected with it, hopefully our good success will come!

Top currency are growing up in last 7 days... SBD and steem are continuously grows ups and down... But overall they give good result.....Last 7 days steem grows 34.57% and SBD grows 18.19%..

The news about the rise in SBD is a good one. Meanwhile, I hope to see Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and EOS redeemed from the red ocean

Important updates about cryptos. Thanks sir for the analytic post.

A very informative and helpful post @dragosroua. This makes us make informed choices with trading.
