Veteran value investor Bill Miller says Warren Buffett’s declaration that Bitcoin is rat poison could be right on the money.

In his market letter summarizing Q4 2020, the famed asset manager says the potential devaluation of the dollar could dramatically boost Bitcoin’s corporate adoption at the expense of cash.

“If inflation picks up, or even if it doesn’t, and more companies decide to diversify some small portion of their cash balances into bitcoin instead of cash, then the current relative trickle into Bitcoin would become a torrent. Warren Buffett famously called Bitcoin ‘rat poison.’ He may well be right. Bitcoin could be rat poison, and the rat could be cash.”

Miller adds that Bitcoin was the best performing asset category in 2020, giving it a bigger market capitalization than the largest bank in the US by assets, JPMorgan Chase, and Warren Buffett’s investing conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

Miller says Bitcoin is entering the new year with substantial upside over gold and “many advantages over the yellow metal.”

Miller highlights big institutional bets on Bitcoin as a hedge against inflation as a signal that deep pocketed investors are noticing the asset’s upside potential.

He points to Square, MassMutual and MicroStrategy’s large Bitcoin purchases as well as PayPal and Square’s dominance over the newly mined supply of BTC as a big boost to the industry.

Miller made his first bet on Bitcoin in 2014. At the time, Miller allocated 1% of his net worth to the cryptocurrency when Bitcoin was roughly $900. It is currently up by nearly 4,000% from 2014 levels.

Network rivalry builds up as Ethereum users run to Tron for lower fee charges

Network rivalry builds up as Ethereum users run to Tron for lower fee charges

Advertisement &  & 

Tether users on the Ethereum network have taken to their heels as Ethereum’s network fees hit rooftop levels yet again. According to new data, Tether-based transactions on the Tron network are starting to unseat that of Ethereum’s on a daily basis.

Tether, the most popular stablecoin, and third most valued cryptocurrency by market cap has been processing the larger number of its transactions on Tron, however, only a year ago, Ethereum was the happening blockchain for Tether users.

According to the Blockchain data provider CoinMetrics, the source of this data, Ethereum holding 50% more Tether than its “rival” Tron, has not stopped the latter from processing more transactions on a daily basis since the start of the year. 

Tether, the largest provider of dollar-pegged stablecoin has benefited from a 4x increase in circulating supply over the last year, bringing the total circulating supply within its network to $25 billion. This ever-increasing growth is valuable for any network for both Tron, Ethereum, and Solana, all of which Tether trading is being carried out. However, exorbitant fee charges may force users to pick the better alternative, which Tron is currently presenting itself to be. This pattern further goes to show that affordable network charges play a huge role in Blockchain adoption.

Ethereum’s exorbitant fee charges have been a topic of discussion for the longest time. The sky-high transaction cost has heightened the rivalry between both Blockchains over the years. Both Ethereum and Tron have achieved great success over the years. On multiple occasions, one has outperformed the other, even the CEO’s of both networks have had an occasional exchange on Twitter, yet the fight for user adoption has only just begun, as the future of both networks remain equally promising. Last year, the Tron network revealed plans to dive into the world of Decentralized Finance, an industry that Ethereum has long been dominating.

In 2020 alone, the Ethereum network benefited from a 300% upsurge in transactions. With Tron’s flexible fee charges, it is no doubt a top competitor in the DeFi market. But Ethereum isn’t lacking behind. The network upgrade which has the potential to contain network congestion and create a more affordable fee structure is already in motion. Whichever efficiently draws in the larger pool of users in the future remains to be seen.

Republished by Plato

The major cryptocurrencies in the market have been consolidating but in most markets, bullish trends have been overtaken by bearish ones. Major cryptocurrencies like Chainlink [LINK], Monero [XMR], and BitTorrent [BTT] have been currently noting rising pressure from the sellers.

Meanwhile, for the world’s largest cryptocurrency – Bitcoin, the past 24-hours saw the price increase by a negligible 0.8 percent and currently trades at $32,144 at press time.

According to the above chart, the current Chainlink [LINK] market has been bouncing between $23.64 and $25.02. The current trading value of the digital asset was $23.74, while the overall trend in the market seemed to favor the short traders.

The value has approached the support at $23.64 and the Bollinger bands were noting that the market was not as volatile as before. The signal line was over the price bars, noting a level of bearishness evident in the market. Whereas, the 50 moving average was currently supporting the price at $23.75.

The Relative strength index indicated that the asset was moving sharply towards the oversold zone.

Monero [XMR]

The Monero price has also been seeing a long period of consolidation between $143.43 and $149.96. As the value recovered from the previous fall, it has found a stable territory to trade at. The 50 moving average has formed an arc under the candlesticks which have supported its price.

But like other altcoin markets, the sellers have taken a position in the market and the devaluation has begun. The RSI has been moving away from the equilibrium, while the MACD was noting a constantly changing trend.

BitTorrent [BTT]

The BitTorrent price recently peaked and immediately corrected itself in the following hours. As the price moved lower, the 50 moving average came closer to the candlestick making the price take support from the $0.00034 price level.

Meanwhile, RSI was noting that the traders were balancing out the buying and selling of the coin. The Awesome Oscillator was indicating that the momentum had escaped the market and it is likely to reside in the current zone at least in the short term.

Tezos Price Analysis: 24 January

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Disclaimer: The findings of the following analysis is the sole opinion of the writer and should not be taken as investment advice

The cryptocurrency market has been forming crests and troughs along the way. As the value of Bitcoin has been dropping from $42k and this trend has been followed by the altcoin markets too. The value of Tezos has been moving like a wave too, witnessing momentary highs and lows.

Despite the rising price of the cryptocurrency, the coin may see a dip in the near future and opens up an opportunity to short the coin. At the time of writing XTZ’s price was $3.20.

In the above chart of Tezos, its price was surging and pushed through all the immediate resistances visible. After the value dipped under $2.45, the price turned around and started rising with increased bullish momentum.

The price is consolidating above the support at $3.11 and the traders may be getting prepared to short their positions.

Reasoning

The 50 moving average was indicating this surge, as it was surfing under the price bars. Meanwhile, the volatility in the market had increased and it was reflected in the divergence of the Bollinger bands. Whereas the signal line was also under the price bars noting the price moving upwards.

The Relative Strength Index was noting the value of the indicator rising from the equilibrium zone. As the price of the digital asset has been moving above the support, there are chances for the price to witness a fall.

The Awesome Oscillator has been noting a fall in momentum. As the selling pressure was introduced in the market, the momentum was also reducing, presenting a chance for the trend to change.

Crucial Levels to look out for

Entry: $3.11
Stop-Loss: $3.27
Take-Profit: $2.86
Risk-to-Reward: 1.48

Conclusion

The Tezos market has been moving sideways and selling pressure maybe building. As the pressure builds there might be a sell-off visible and traders may benefit from the falling price of the digital asset.
