Price Action to Watch

The moves in XRP, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash were especially surprising; they were much larger than the normal daily trading range associated with the currency. Technical traders may also wish to note the following developments in price action:

  • If you’re looking for a coin without a clear trend — perhaps a coin with some rangebound trading opportunities — XRP might be one worth considering.
  • Currencies in clear downtrend over the past two weeks are Litecoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum. If you prefer bear markets, they might be up your alley.

Insights from the Blockchains

Ripple recorded 878,104 transactions on its blockchain over the past 24 hours; that’s the best of the bunch, and about 24% over Ethereum, which had the second most transactions recorded on its chain. Ripple has a transaction fee less than the transaction fee of Ethereum, which may indicate that transaction fees might be a key reason why users are preferring Ripple. Bitcoin was the coin with the largest transaction across all blockchains yesterday; the largest transaction on its chain was valued at $139,640,864 US dollars. Bitcoin continues to dominate the crypto market, with the total circulating value of its currency equal to approximately $169.41 billion US dollars. That’s about 68.63% of the value of all circulating cryptocurrencies. Note that Bitcoin’s dominance level has been in an unclear trend, oscillating between 67.82% to 68.79% over the past two weeks.
