From a warning about the big Bitcoin rally to an impulse to take Litecoin to the points of sale, here are some of the stories that are being broken in the world of cryptography.
Veteran derivatives trader Tone Vays says he is not seeing new buyers enter the cryptography space, which makes the sudden increase of $ 8,000 Bitcoin make him uncomfortable.
In a new interview with BLOCKTV, Vays says he is selling some of his long-term Bitcoin stock in anticipation of a fall.
"It was an unprecedented race, we had a similar race in 2015 towards the end of the bear market, but the 2014-15 bear market was longer, it was more painful, it went deeper, and everything that happens here just does not feel like it. all right.
I've been looking for a rebound since we went down to $ 4,000 around October / November. I've been looking for a rebound of up to $ 5,100. If we exceed, I thought we could have reached $ 4,600. But after that, we went up. We hit $ 8,400 the other day. And I do not know what is happening. Everyone I ask does not really know what is happening.
I do not see new buyers entering. I do not see any new money coming. It's just current money. It could be the problems in Bitfinex, the problems in Tether, the problems in Binance. Whatever it is that's driving me makes me nervous and I'm even selling part of my Hodl position because I think this is about to be corrected, and to correct strongly. "
Adamant research partner and cryptographic researcher Tuur Demeester says the rally validates his firm's thesis that Bitcoin traders have been in heavy accumulation mode. Although he believes that the big rally in Bitcoin is the start of the new long-term bullish race, he also believes that BTC is ready for a short-term withdrawal.
"I did not expect the markets to recover so quickly, but I think that everything we have seen in recent weeks validates the thesis that we are now in a bull market, going from capitulation to accumulation, and now we are in the initial stage. of a new bull market. "
I think this shows that yes, family offices and funds were accumulating. There was also a small squeeze. Many traders thought that we would go below $ 3,000. And everyone is being squeezed. Finally, we are seeing that the long / short Bitfinex relationship is flat again, where before the shorts were higher than the long ones. That means they have been squeezed.
I think the Bitcoin miners are probably not selling now. They do not need And that is why they are a kind of retention to the market. And I think there is a small fear of getting lost in retail. But at the same time, I think the market is moving forward right now. I think this is very untenable. And just like in these previous bull markets, we have to settle down a bit and then trade in a side range for a while. And then the bull market can be resumed in a sustainable way. "

Ripple and XRP
Big Data analyst and Forbes contributor, Thomas Silkjær, released an animated chart showing the expansion of the XRP ledger from January 1, 2013 through April 30, 2019.
"Besides being a striking visualization, the graphic clearly shows the centrality of the exchanges. Initially, a new activation would require a user to know someone who can activate an account, but gradually, as the exchanges are listed in XRP, they become new centers for the activation of the portfolio.
