Cryptocurrency’s second-largest coin in terms of market cap – Ethereum – looks like it may topple yearly highs despite falling 6% overnight. Following an extended rally from $140 at the start of April, Ethereum tested the daily 200 exponential moving average (EMA) before consolidating between the $160 level of support and the $181 level of resistance. In spite of the recent drop to $165, Ethereum looks to be coiling up for a fairly dramatic move to the upside. Bitcoin produced an Easter Sunday rally to lift itself above $5,350 before stalling just short of $5,700, but much like in 2017, numerous altcoins fell against their BTC trading pair.

23rd April 2019 – The Panxora Group, a cryptocurrency consortium, today announces the launch of its ICO Treasury Management Service (TMS). The TMS helps founders manage the capital raised through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) to ensure that it is preserved from the volatility of cryptocurrency and can support business growth.

Keeping it in crypto exposes it to volatility and risks loss, while converting it immediately to fiat could mean a missed opportunity to take advantage of a rising crypto market.

The price of Bitcoin is what the majority of people focus on. From starting out at less than $0.01 to the peak of $20,000, the Bitcoin price history has been a roller coaster, with numerous ups and downs. The beginning When Bitcoin was first born, there was no price attached to the cryptocurrency to begin with. Early miners would often send Bitcoins to other people as gifts for free so that they could play with the technology.

The recent Bitcoin price rebound does not mean the cryptocurrency will be heading back to its all-time highs of near $20,000 any time soon, according to Kevin Dennean, tech analyst at UBS. “The argument here is that Bitcoin has gone through its bubble phase and is ready to rise phoenix-like from the ashes just as other assets and indices did in the past,” he wrote in a research note to clients. He flagged up previous bubbles such as the Dow Jones in the Great Depression, the Nikkei in 1989, the Dotcom Boom and Bust, oil in 2008, and China’s recent stock market crash. “We’re struck by how long it took other asset bubbles to recover their peak levels (as long as 22 The post Don’t believe the hype.
