    Weiss Ratings claims Cardano is ‘vastly superior’ to EOS

    In a series of tweets published this week by the official Weiss Crypto Ratings account, the financial ratings firm claimed that while EOS was first to market, rival Cardano has "vastly superior" technology. The ratings firm later stated that Cardano’s imminent release of its Shelley phase was a turning point for the protocol, which would allow investors to earn passive ADA through staking for the first time in the blockchain’s history. Cardano is clearly superior to EOS. EOS was first to market, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that of the two, Cardano is vastly superior. More details on this in subsequent tweets.

    Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD)

    Litecoin (LTC) experienced exponential growth earlier this year. Prior to mid-June, the altcoin was the best performing digital asset of 2019, growing more than 170% in fewer than 90 days and peaking at around $145. A serious summer downtrend then saw LTC tumble to around $49 before a market-wide pump last month following Chinese President Xi Jinping's bullish comments on blockchain. Litecoin is currently trading at around $58 after a 2% drop in price over the last 24 hours. Price is now down 5% since last week. Will the altcoin continue consolidating above $55? Let's take a look at the LTC chart. Looking at the EMAs, we can see the 50-day EMA has crossed the 200-day EMA to the downsideThe post Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Latest Ethereum price and analysis (ETH to USD)

    At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is trading at around $187 following a 4% drop in price since last week. The world's second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has been consolidating to the downside over the past few days, as most altcoins have been doing lately. As mentioned last week, Ethereum was in a clear consolidation downtrend towards the end of October after making a number of lower highs since mid-July when the coin suffered a massive drop. However, the altcoin downtrend seems to have reversed since the pump two weeks ago that caused Bitcoin's price to rise 40%. Will ETH continue to recover to above $200? Or will it plunge back towards $160 and below? Let's take a lookThe post Latest Ethereum price and analysis (ETH to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Cryptocurrency market update: Consolidation ahead

    This month couldn't have got off to a better start. After the huge Bitcoin pump we saw in late October, where the price of BTC increased over 40% in the space of 24 hours, it seems the market has now stabilised. I personally expect the positive trend to continue this week following the recent news that President Xi Jinping wants China to be a key player in the blockchain space. It's notable that following Xi's comments, there was a massive surge in searches for "blockchain" and "Bitcoin" on WeChat. In addition, the endorsement for blockchain may kick-start a wave of adoption by the Chinese, especially by businesses, just as the brand new government-backed cryptocurrency is getting ready to launch.
