Data Reveals Reasons Behind Litecoin's 80% Rally

    Litecoin (LTC) recently saw an impressive 80% rally after the first ten days of November 2022. According to Santiment, a crypto analytics firm, this remarkable increase results from two key factors. Reasons Behind Litecoin's Bullish Trend Based on the tweet from the analytics firm, Litecoin's two major driving forces are its increasing adoption and halving process ahead in 2023. Litecoin is becoming more accepted by merchants due to its low transaction costs and quick transaction times. This fact has allowed people to use it for everyday purchases, such as buying goods online or sending money to others. As a result, the demand for Litecoin has grown significantly in recent months, which has seen the price of LTC surge. Large holders of the token have added considerable money to it, and its adoption keeps increasing. In the last seven months, addresses holding the coin have added about 1.15 million tokens. This event has increased the token's total supply by 0.5%. According to the Santiment report, several token holders acquired it toward the end of July 2022. At the time, each Litecoin token was trading at a little less than $60, thus, bringing good returns to the holders. Litecoin Halving Ahead, Will It Push The Price Further? A halving is a mechanism to reduce block reward for miners by half. This process intends to keep the cryptocurrency's supply in check and to help maintain its price stability. Every four years, the network halves the block reward miners receive ... read More

Data Suggests Sharks Were Behind Litecoin's 89% Rise To $97, But What Ab...

    Litecoin (LTC) has seen one of the highest rallies among the top 20 largest cryptocurrencies, jumping over 89% since the market crash following the FTX collapse. While there are a number of factors that could’ve prompted this news, on-chain data suggests that sharks are the likely culprit. Sharks Holding 100-10,000 Coins Went On A Feeding Frenzy According to a Sentiment report, the sharks may be the ones behind the upward rally that Litecoin has embarked on in the last two months. It shows that these shark addresses holding between 100-10,000 LTC on their accounts went on a massive accumulation trend that saw them add a reasonable portion of supply to their holdings. Santiment reveals that in the two-month period, these addresses accumulated 1.15 million LTC. This works out to around a 4.92% increase in their holdings and 0.5% of the total LTC supply. As the image below shows, there was a significant uptick around this point coinciding with the increase in the price of the digital asset. The accumulation trend continued into January 2023 when LTC’s price movement had ramped up. Thus, this shows that while accumulation by sharks may not have been the main driver of the price rally, they may have played a significant role. Further movements point toward these shark addresses having an effect on the price. Like the chart shows, there has been some profit-taking after LTC hit its local peak of $97 and this profit-taking coincided with the price of the cryptocurrenc... read More

Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC, ETH Lower, Ahead of Key Week ...

    Bitcoin fell below $23,000 on Jan. 31, following a recent move to a five-month high over the weekend.

Currently, the index is now tracking at 68.78, which is marginally above its long-term support point at 68.00.

Following a high of $1,595.86 to start the week, ETH/USD slipped to an intraday bottom of $1,546.66 on Tuesday. Since hitting... read More

Sao Paolo Introduces Blockchain in Data Access Law

    The Brazilian city of Sao Paolo has introduced the concept of blockchain in its municipal data access and transparency law. The concept of blockchain is defined as a technology that can be of use in this field, but the city has not defined the structures or the implementation for its use in the future. Sao Paolo Law Introduces Concept of Blockchain Little by little, more use cases of blockchain, part of the technology behind cryptocurrency, are being embraced by institutions all over the world. The city of Sao Paolo has included the concept of blockchain in its recently passed municipal data and transparency law as a tech that can be used to help the state complete its tasks. In the legislation, blockchain is defined as an immutable ledger that can record transactions and track assets using a computer network. While the tech is cited as a useful tool, the law fails to define in which ways it can be harnessed to make data access and transparency-related tasks more efficient. This has led some experts to believe that the inclusion of this definition in the law is just accidental, as the document fails to indicate any implementation methods. On this, Marcelo Castro, a lawyer for Machado Meyer, told O'Globo: Institutions are recognizing blockchain as beneficial in the economy, however, there is no specific command saying how the technology will be used within a schedule, and this brings an enormous risk of going astray in a dead letter of law. Incoming Innovation However, legisl... read More

Clear Upward Trend in Addresses as Ethereum Rallies Past $1.6K: Data

    The year started on a bullish note which aided the world's largest altcoin to sprint towards its pre-FTX market cap levels. Days after struggling to overcome $1,600, Ethereum finally climbed past the resistance level on Tuesday amidst a broader market rally. Even as certain group of investors looking to pocket quick gains began offloading the token, this has not affected the growing appeal of the network. Ethereum Ownership According to the latest data by IntoTheBlock, there is a clear upward trend in addresses with balances of all sizes. Except for one cohort of Ether holders with 0.10 ETH to 1 ETH, which started decreasing in size with the start of the bear market, all the other cohorts have been on a steady rise. With the most recent increase in Ethereum's price, some bigger holders have resorted to offloading their assets in a bid to rake in quick gains. Despite this, ITB noted an increase in addresses with larger balances in terms of USD valuations. This trend depicted an enhanced market sentiment after a brutal year of an incessant downtrend. A drill down further at the ownership revealed that six addresses held a total of 22.65% of the ETH supply, and these addresses have been active. In terms of the overall distribution, ITB's data suggested that whales hold most of the tokens in circulation. The retail players, on the other hand, held a relatively small percentage of the supply.

Litecoin Price Could Rally 285% Pre-Halving Based On Historical Data

    While the Bitcoin halving is not expected until March 13, 2024, according to Coinwarz data, Litecoin investors can already look forward to the traditionally bullish event as soon as this year. According to NiceHash's estimate, the Litecoin halving will take place in 189 days, on July 19, 2023. The approaching halving has prompted analyst Rekt Capital to examine Litecoin's historical price trends before and after the halving in order to provide a prediction for the coming months. 285% Litecoin Rally In The Cards? Rekt Capital notes that LTC tends to rally quite a lot before halving. Before halving 1, the price bottomed in 122 days and rose +820% afterward. Before halving 2, LTC bottomed in 243 days and rallied by 550%. After both halvings, however, the price gains were even stronger. As the chart below from Rekt Capital shows, Litecoin is up +14,200% after the first halving, and after the second halving, it was 'still' 1,574%. From this, the analyst derives the historical tendency that LTC tends to rally stronger after the halving than before. However, this does not mean that investing before the halving is not historically lucrative if you find the right time to place a sell order. According to the analyst, it can be seen from historical data that LTC sees a strong rally prior to the halving before the price drops sharply immediately. The Litecoin price declined by -73% in the first 578 days after halving. The second halving led the price to drop as much as -83% before it f... read More

Bitcoin On-Chain Data Shows Weak Baseline For 2023: Report

    Even though Bitcoin (BTC) and the broader crypto market are experiencing an upswing in the first days of the new year, on-chain data shows that the market remains in a deep slumber. As Glassnode explains in its latest report, the BTC price has shown historically low volatility over the past weeks. And according to the on-chain data for Bitcoin, there is currently little reason to believe that the boredom in the market will change quickly. However, if a move does occur, it will likely be an explosive market move, as in previous cycles when volatility was extremely low. To support this thesis, Glassnode cites Bitcoin's realized volatility over the last month, which is at a multi-year low of 24.6%. As the chart below shows, there have been a few times in Bitcoin's history when it has been this low. In most cases, BTC saw a rally after the market awakened; only in one case, in November 2018, did the price fall dramatically (-50%) lower. Bitcoin Network Usage Is Low Also, the weak baseline for Bitcoin is identified by Glassnode in continued restrained network usage. While on-chain activity increased after the FTX collapse, the uptick briefly leveled off later. The monthly average of new Bitcoin addresses is approaching the annual average again. The overall transaction value of the network is in free fall. While the daily transfer volume was still around $40 billion in the third quarter of 2022, it is currently only $5.8 billion/day. The value is thus back at the level before the... read More

Top 5 Crypto To Watch As CPI Data Is Released This Week

    The crypto market has been very bullish in the past week as the turn of the year sparked positive investor sentiment for the industry, especially to our top 5 crypto to watch this week. Since January 1st, the total market cap of crypto rose by 8.25% which shows a complete reversal of investor sentiment on the market.  As market optimism grows for an economic soft landing, crypto is poised for a recovery after a year of complete disaster. The market was devastated after multiple high-profile collapses, leaving investors as the biggest losers and driving fear, uncertainty, and doubt higher. The broader financial market is eyeing the release of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for December. These Are The Top 5 Crypto To Watch This Week:  Litecoin (LTC)  The ol’ reliable token of the crypto world, this altcoin recently recorded its 140 millionth transaction. Litecoin accomplished that with nearly a 100% uptime, which is a rare occurrence in an era of smart contract providers.  The altcoin is also growing in adoption with LTC gaining traction as a means for payment. With this in mind, LTC would definitely have a strong and significant role once the bear market cycle starts.  At the current price of $81.92, the token will have a significant part in the next bull market. However, if macroeconomic data trends down or stagnate, LTC will definitely have a tough time climbing back up. Shiba Inu (SHIB) The original rival to Dogecoin (DOGE), this memec... read More

Cardano (ADA) Extremely Undervalued? On-Chain Data Suggests So

    Cardano is one of the altcoins that has been hit the hardest by the bear market. Created by former Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, the coin is 91.6% below its all-time high of $3.10, which was reached on September 1, 2021. Thus, ADA is performing much worse than its main competitor Ethereum. ETH reached its all-time high of $4.878 on November 10, 2021, and is currently about -75.4% below that level. However, according to on-chain analytics service Santiment, there are early signs of a trend reversal. For instance, sharks and whales holding 100,000 to 10 million ADA have been accumulating aggressively over the past six weeks. As the analyst writes, there is currently a bullish divergence between price and whale activity. A look at realized gains and losses also paints a bullish picture. According to the analyst, there are signs of seller exhaustion. 'On every big price decrease there are fewer and fewer coins moving at a loss,' the analyst notes. Furthermore, the Santiment analyst says that Cardano (ADA) is facing a trading volume gap in the $0.19 to $0.26 range, where he expects the price to see 'serious buying.'  “Based on the things mentioned above, I believe price will increase in value. However, without any other data, it is difficult to accurately assess the validity of this analysis,” the analyst concluded. Messari Research Assesses The Current State Of Cardano An analysis of the state of the Cardano network was also published yesterday by Mess... read More

The password management company detailed that a breach, committed earlier this year, allowed hackers to obtain a “backup of customer vault data.”Lastpass Reveals 'Threat Actor Was Also Able to Copy a Backup of Customer Vault Data' On Dec. 22, 2022, the password management firm Lastpass disclosed that an “unknown threat actor” managed to breach the firm’s cloud-based storage environment in or around Aug. 2022.

    Ethereum edged closer to a key resistance level of $1,230 on Dec. 23, as markets continued to react to better than expected U.S. GDP data. Gross domestic product in the United States was revised higher to 3.2%, better than the 2.9% expected. Bitcoin mostly consolidated in today's session, with prices trading near the $16,800 mark.Bitcoin Bitcoin (BTC) was once again in consolidation on Friday, as markets continued to react to the latest U.S. Q3 GDP figures. Following a low of $16,592.41 on Thursday, BTC/USD was marginally higher, with prices rising to a peak of $16,880.87 in today's session. The surge in price pushed BTC above a key resistance point of $16,800, as bulls once again attempted to recapture the $17,000 mark. As can be seen from the chart, recent price uncertainty comes as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) remains close to a floor at 45.00. Sentiment also seems uncertain following a recent crossover between the red 10-day moving average, and its 25-day (blue) counterpart. If this downward trend continues, we could see BTC trading near $16,000 during the Christmas weekend. Ethereum Ethereum (ETH) was marginally higher to end the week, as prices moved closer to a key resistance level earlier today. ETH/USD raced to an intraday peak of $1,224.21 in Friday's session, less than 24 hours after hovering at $1,187.13.

US Stocks Fall on GDP Data, Bitcoin, Ethereum Hold On (Market Watch)

    Both the two largest cryptocurrencies charted minor daily losses yesterday following the US GDP data but recovered almost immediately. In contrast, the largest US stock market indexes closed the trading day in the red. Bitcoin Bounces Back All eyes yesterday were focused on the US GDP announcement following the past two negative quarters. This time, however, the estimations showed that the world's leading economy will post a 2.9% growth compared to the numbers from the same quarter last year. But the US economy displayed an even more notable growth of 3.2%, which some considered as a double-edged sword, showing that the US Fed's actions have only limited impact. The three largest US stock market indexes - the S&P 500, the Dow Jones, and the Nasdaq - dipped almost immediately. Although they all recovered some of the intraday trading losses, each closed in the red, with Nasdaq losing the most - 2.18%. Bitcoin, on the other hand, traded calmly around $16,800, as it was doing for the past few days. It remained unfazed at first but then dipped by around $300. However, the cryptocurrency bounced off quickly and recovered all daily losses. As of now, BTC stands still inches away from $17,000. Its market cap has remained around $325 billion, while its dominance over the altcoins is just shy of 40%. BTCUSD.

    Cryptocurrency prices mostly consolidated on Thursday, ahead of upcoming GDP figures from the United States. Bitcoin remained close to the $17,000 level in today's session, with the global market cap trading 0.01% lower as of writing. Ethereum was largely unchanged, as prices continued to trade above $1,200. Bitcoin Bitcoin (BTC) continued to consolidate ahead of this afternoon's third quarter GDP data from the United States. This afternoon's figures are expected to show growth of 2.9% in the quarter, as inflation in the U.S. began to slow down. BTC/USD hit a high of $16,895.71 ahead of the data release, which is marginally higher than Wednesday's bottom at $16,755.91. Looking at the chart, today's consolidation comes as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) continued to hover near a support point at 46.00. As of writing, the index is tracking at the 46.49 level, and could be set to break out of this point at any moment. Should this occur, bearish sentiment will likely return to the market, with prices heading towards $16,500. Ethereum Ethereum (ETH) also consolidated in today's session, with bulls managing to keep prices above the $1,200 level. Following a low of $1,208.03 in Tuesday's session, ETH/USD was marginally higher on Thursday, as it rose to a peak of $1,219.61.

Gemini Customer Data Leak Was Advertised for Sale on Hacker Forums for 3...

    On Dec. 14, 2022, the crypto exchange Gemini revealed that some Gemini customers have been the target of phishing attacks that the firm believes stem from a third-party vendor leak. While reports disclosed that Gemini's leak was approximately '5,701,649 lines of information pertaining to Gemini customers,' Gemini did not disclose how many customers were affected by the breach. Moreover, according to Bleeping Computer's cybersecurity author, Ionut Ilascu, data from Gemini's customer info leak has been advertised for sale on hacker forums as early as Sept. 2022.

Glassnode Raises Concerns Over Binance PoR Data, Was There A Mistake?

    Binance, as one of the leading crypto exchanges, tried to exhibit transparency in its operations, especially on the security of customers' funds. This led it to publish its proof of reserve (PoR) reports. However, the collapse of some firms like Celsius Network, FTX, and others has instilled fear and doubts about crypto exchanges and platforms. Investors lost confidence majorly in centralized platforms. Hence, most CEXs have taken to publishing their proof of reserve assets to indicate the safety of users' funds. Difference In Binance's Reported BTC Holding Some revelations hint at the under-reporting of the Binance PoR assets. For example, according to on-chain data provider Glassnode, the crypto exchange balance shows a total Bitcoin holding of almost 584,600 BTC. But the exchange reported having about 359,300 BTC in its Proof of Reserves (PoR). This discrepancy of 200,000 BTC, Glassnode points out, shows an under-reporting of its BTC holdings. The difference is worth approximately $3.4 billion at the current market price. The Ethereum balance, as reported by Binance in its proof of reserve and the on-chain data provider, was similar. Both reports showed about 4.65 million ETH held in Binance reserves. Also, data from Glassnode showed that the exchange's balances witnessed increased volatility through December. This happened due to the FUD surrounding Binance, as the exchange faced a similar situation to FTX. The FUD had triggered increased withdrawals from the crypto ex... read More

Bitcoin Rollercoaster on US Inflation Data, SBF's Arrest, and MetaMask's...

    The biggest news of the past seven days is undoubtedly the arrest of the former CEO of FTX - Sam Bankman-Fried. This took place on December 13th in the Bahamas at the request of the US Government. SBF now faces multiple counts of fraud charges, including criminal charges from the US DOJ. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics also published the numbers for the Consumer Price Index, which clocked in at 7.1%. The expectations were for 7.3%, which sent the markets, including Bitcoin, on a rally. The cryptocurrency topped $18K earlier in the week. Unfortunately, the celebrations were for not as a day later, during the FOMC meeting of the US Federal Reserve, Chairman Jerome Powell announced another 50bps rate hike, sending the crypto markets into a sea of red. The declines transitioned into Friday when BTC's price reached an intraday low below $17K. The crypto markets are riddled with turmoil and uncertainty as questions of Binance's solvency worry investors. The exchange has so far shown no signs of an issue, as it was successful in processing over $8 billion in daily withdrawal requests. The CEO, Changpeng Zhao, even said that this doesn't qualify as a 'top 5' day in terms of the most withdrawals and reassured there's no number that would put a strain on the exchange as it holds user assets 1:1. The last bit was later confirmed by on-chain analytics resource CryptoQuant, who stated that Binance's users' deposits are 99% collateralized. On a more positive note, the leading self-custod... read More

Relying on Centralized Databases Makes Dapps Vulnerable to Data Tamperin...

    Decentralized applications (dapps) are prone to data tampering because they 'are largely built on top of centralized databases and services,' the CEO of Space and Time Nate Holiday has said. The CEO also shared a list of data tampering risks which he said are specific to data warehouses. Companies Relying on Centralized Databases and Services According to Nate Holiday, the CEO of decentralized data warehouse Space and Time, the recent draining of funds on the defi (decentralized finance) lending platform Lodestar Finance, and Axie Infinity’s Ronin network attack before that, are key events reminding users that decentralized apps (dapps) are prone to data tampering. Although he concedes that many dapps are powered by blockchain, Holiday nevertheless claimed many of these applications 'are largely built on top of centralized databases and services.' As recently reported by News, the hacker behind the siphoning of $6.9 million from Lodestar Finance had tampered with 'the exchange rate of the plvGLP contract.' The hacker then followed this up by supplying the plvGLP collateral to Lodestar and borrowing all the available liquidity. Commenting on the recent data tampering incidents, Holiday said dapps, just like centralized business organizations, can have a single point of failure which makes them vulnerable to hacks. This in turn diminishes their appeal to users, Holiday argued. 'Data tampering can have catastrophic effects for dapp users. For example, if a dece... read More

Ethereum Addresses Holding 32 ETH Or More On The Rise, This On-Chain Dat...

    As the bear market continues, Ethereum - the second-biggest cryptocurrency - continues to struggle. If you look at the data from CoinGecko, the most notable positive change is 4.1% on the bi-weekly timescale. The red flashing of the longer time scales, however, indicates that ETH has been declining in value since the FTX collapse, and this fact overshadows the shorter time scales. The upswing was triggered by a sudden increase in demand for prime real estate The descending triangle, a confirmation of a rally, is formed in part by accumulation blocks To push prices higher, ETH buyers need to break over the $1,306.66 barrier However, a number of indicators are suddenly showing optimistic signs. With the price of ether at $1,283 right now, recent headlines have reported a sharp increase in the number of holders with 32 ETH or more, or around $40,000.

Data Suggests Ethereum Layer-2 Tokens May Experience Explosive Upside

    While the Ethereum network and its users continue to suffer from the high fees of the layer-1 blockchain, various layer-2 (L2) solutions are stepping into the spotlight to solve the problem. As analyst Miles Deutscher explained, citing data from Dune Analytics, layer-2 scaling solutions saw monumental growth in 2022. 'I expect this trend to continue in 2023 and beyond,' Deutscher commented. Ethereum gas spent to settle L2 transactions. Source: Twitter Blockchain analytics firm Nansen also released data today showing the growth of layer-2 solutions. Specifically, Nansen referred to Abritrum. 'Arbitrum season is in full swing,' wrote a researcher at Nansen. According to their data, transactions on L2s are increasing significantly, while transactions on Ethereum are decreasing. A clear divergence can be seen. Ethereum L1 vs. Arbitrum. Source: Twitter Regarding Arbitrum, the Nansen researcher writes that the number of daily active addresses averaged 50,000 to 70,000 in November and December. A few months ago, from July to September, the average was 15,000 to 20,000. With the recent Nitro upgrade, Arbitrum has once again massively lowered its average gas price for a transaction. While the average fee was $0.35 before Nitro, it has dropped to $0.08 afterwards. This represents a reduction of almost 75%. However, although Arbitrum's network usage is skyrocketing, there is no token yet. So far, there is also a lack of an official announcement regarding an Arbitrum token. Rumors have ... read More

Data Lake: DeSci the Future of Crypto after the FTX Fiasco?

    It’s no surprise that the news about FTX has dominated the headlines over recent weeks. Since the debacle was made public, several other dominoes have started to fall including the announcement that BlockFi has filed for bankruptcy. Before all of this there was the LUNA/Terra implosion, and if you’ve been around long enough you’ll remember of course Mt. Gox and BitConnect. There are many reasons why FTX fell from its crypto pedestal. To start, a persistent lack of transparency in order to obscure what at best can be described as mismanagement. Next, using their own token for valuation when it had no foundation in tangible or valuable assets. An inexperienced team who were in over their heads only made things worse…the list goes on. The question therefore has to be asked: how can we avoid the next FTX and the collateral damage to blockchain’s reputation that these disastrous events cause? How can we save crypto? To do so, we must return to the roots of blockchain and founding principles, where projects are evaluated based on their tangible value, real-world use cases, and the problems they can solve using DLT and web3 technologies. Tired of scams and vaporware, many in the crypto community have begun to realize the importance of such fundamentals. One of the movements that best represents this shift in mentality is DeSci. Decentralized Science is a growing area of blockchain that seeks to apply the best of web3 technologies to solve some of the b... read More
