Norwegian Block Exchange, a Norwegian cryptocurrency exchange founded by Bjørn Kjos, who also founded Norwegian Airlines and Bank Norwegian, announced it has secured a large private investment. The investment will provide NBX with financial means to pursue a banking license, and become one of Europe’s first digital assets banks. NBX sees the potential to become the one-stop solution for financial services in the cryptocurrency economy.

Just before entering 2021, the General Assembly approved the completion of a 60 million NOK private placement, for which Pareto Securities, the leading investment bank in the Nordics, acted as the sole manager and book-runner. which puts NBX in a prime position to continue to develop its trading platform for cryptocurrencies and digital assets, as well as new products related to banking and E-money licenses.

Ever since their public launch in April 2020, NBX has been working towards becoming a preferred digital assets services provider in Nordics. Since then, the product has attracted over 7000 clients, including institutional accounts, which, in turn, allowed them to grow their trading volume up to 20 million NOK by November. In doing so, they were able to engage major Norwegian investors and successfully close their most recent, 60 million NOK ($7.1 million USD) placement, which will help them to achieve their ultimate goal of becoming a digital asset bank, further down the line. 

 “I am very pleased that NBX has successfully raised 60 million NOK in a private placement. This funding will provide NBX with the financial robustness to pursue a banking license, and become one of Europe’s first digital assets banks, while simultaneously expanding our services to new countries and establishing NBX as the preferred digital asset service provider in the Nordics.”
– NBX’s Co-Founder and CEO, Stig Aleksander Kjos-Mathisen

Cardano Price Analysis: 07 March

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The cryptocurrency market has been constantly forming crusts and troughs as it strives towards stability. Cardano’s market witnessed a similar trend wherein the price surged towards the end of February but has been correcting since.

At the time of writing, Cardano was trading at $1.13 with a market capitalization of $35.68 billion.

The above chart noted that the current market movement had formed a descending triangle and the price was sloping lower. The price has been supported at $1.06 as the trend becomes bearish.

This downwards trending price has been indicating a further drop making its way into the ADA market.

Reasoning

After witnessing increased volatility in the recent past, the ADA market is now seeing the volatility reduce. However, it has not yet shrunk to a level where a price swing was not possible. Since the descending triangle was a bearish trend, a price drop could make the market more volatile.

The signal line and the 50 moving average were also moving above the price candles and were acting as a point of resistance. Meanwhile, market momentum has turned negative due to the rising selling pressure in the market.

Despite the shift in momentum, the Relative Strength Index has remained close to the equilibrium zone. This could be a sign for the consolidation of the price at the current level but as bearishness increases, the consolidation phase may lead to the price breaking down.

Crucial levels

Entry-level: $1.07
Stop-level: $1.17
Take profit: $0.91
Risk to Reward: 1.53

Conclusion

The current ADA market has been seeing the price drop to its $1.06 support. As the price tests the support, the indicators have been highlighting an incoming fall. This fall could push the digital asset under the support and could bring the value under $1.

HODLing early leads to relationship troubles? Redditors share their stories

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Crypto investments have reportedly been a source of strife in relationships, sometimes leading to breakups and even divorce. 

According to a Reddit post from February 2015, a then 28-year-old woman using a throwaway account claimed that she was incredibly upset at her husband, who had not stopped purchasing Bitcoin (BTC) since 2013 without consulting her. She estimated that he had bought more than $22,000 in the crypto asset in the two years prior to the post, when the price reached a high of more than $1,000 but also dipped under $200.

“I kept telling him to sell as the price was rising and he promised me a big year in 2014,” she said. “The price kept falling and he continued to buy more. He makes more money than I do but we are building a future together and we have a shared bank account. He kept telling me this was for our kids’ college fund, to buy a house, etc.”

In the early days of Bitcoin and crypto when digital currencies were often used as a running joke for late night talk shows and comedians, many considered investing in the technology financially immature at the very least. Some people still do, even with the BTC price at more than $50,000 again.

The Redditor referred to her husband as “brainwashed,” saying he was “robbing [her] of happiness” and ruining her job by bringing up Bitcoin at her marketing events.

“After a recent price crash, he actually bought more using our vacation fund that I have been saving away for and planning. All gone, in Bitcoin never to be seen again.”

It’s unclear whether the couple stayed together following the response from the post, or if the husband sold some or all of the Bitcoin to ameliorate his wife’s financial concerns. The user compared her spouse to a drug addict and considered “staying in a hotel for a few weeks” to think about whether divorce was an option.

However, with the benefit of hindsight, the husband’s early investment could have easily paid off in the millions of dollars. Even assuming he purchased BTC after the price surge to $1,000 in November 2013, the 22 coins would now be worth more than $1 million.

Because the story was posted on the r/relationships subreddit rather than a pro-crypto group like r/Bitcoin or r/cryptocurrency, many of the Redditors encouraged the user to separate her finances and consider divorce proceedings. Few crypto enthusiasts jumped on the thread to comment, but one predicted that the BTC would one day be “worth fortunes” and recommended the husband continue to HODL.

Another story from a Redditor following the 2017 bull run — which brought in many newbies to the crypto space — claimed that his girlfriend was considering breaking up with him following “a huge investment in cryptocurrencies.” However, digital currencies seem to have played less of a role in his story, as the user said he crashed a car while driving drunk and was pressuring his significant other to leave her job.

Though many crypto traders know the price of Bitcoin and other digital currencies will likely continue to be volatile, the adoption and investment from major companies have helped push the technology closer to the mainstream, and made it seemingly more responsible for investors to get in on the action earlier rather than later. Already Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary has claimed to have increased his stake in Bitcoin while asset management firm Third Point CEO Dan Loeb recently said he had been doing a “deep dive into crypto.”

Binance Coin, Monero, Algorand Price Analysis: 07 March

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Binance Coin targeted a rise above the $240 resistance on the back of bullish indicators. Monero battled to retake the 38.2% Fibonacci level from the bears. Finally, ALGO’s latest attempt to break above $1.19 resistance was boosted by healthy capital inflows.

The last 24 hours saw Binance Coin rise by 4% as the price attempted to flip a key resistance level at $240. The indicators flashed a bullish signal at the time of writing and suggested that BNB could be due for additional gains. The MACD line rose above the signal line, while the histogram noted some bullish momentum in the market. The Relative Strength Index pointed north from the 60-mark.

The next resistance points resided at $257.6 and $303.8. However, a drop in trading volumes and muted buying activity could form a roadblock for the bulls over the coming sessions.

The range between the 23.6% and 38.2% retracement levels formed a good price oscillation as both sides battled for control of the Monero market. Even though the bulls broke above aforementioned channel, the bears were swift to reject the northbound move. At the time of writing, the buyers looked to retake the 38.2% resistance level once more, backed by positive momentum.

The Awesome Oscillator registered the said momentum after three consecutive green bars formed on the index. However, the ADX floated around the 15-mark and displayed a neutral market. Gains in the broader market could dictate Monero’s movement moving forward.

Algorand [ALGO]

Resistance at $1.19 has been a thorn in Algorand’s attempt at a recovery since the broader market pullback nearly two weeks ago. The On Balance Volume moved lower and showed selling pressure each time the price traded close to its overhead resistance. The situation could likely repeat itself as the cryptocurrency attempted to break upwards once again.

The difference this time around was the strong flow of capital towards ALGO. The CMF captured the capital inflows as the index rose sharply above the half-way mark. In fact, a positive correlation can be drawn between the CMF and ALGO,  since its local high of $1.85 was helped by sustained institutional investment.
