The last couple of years have definitely been fruitful for the folks over at NVIDIA — they’ve developed (or refined) some mighty impressive tech, including both real-time ray tracing (or RTX for short) and DLSS. The only problem, however, is that these enhancements were only available for a handful of titles. 


Fortunately, that is no longer the case as NVIDIA has worked around the clock to get as many developers and game studios to implement this aforementioned technology into their latest and greatest titles. There’s still a lot of work to be done in that regard, but huge advancements have been made. In fact, the list of supported titles has been growing exponentially, and it’s about to get all the more impressive — a couple of exceptional triple-A games getting both NVIDIA RTX and DLSS support!

A Most Eclectic Mix


DOOM Eternal, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Icarus, LEGO® Builder’s Journey, DYING: 1983, The Ascent, and The Persistence will all be getting either RTX or DLSS support (or both, in some cases). This means that over 130 titles will now be supported in one way or another — an impressive number, no doubt! 

Now, ray tracing can certainly elevate the whole gaming experience when implemented appropriately, but DLSS is arguably ten times as important — in many ways it’s a slice of the future! Or, to put it more bluntly: it’s free performance, and who doesn’t want that? We’re talking about a 10-30% increase in FPS without any apparent drop-off in visual fidelity. If we had to describe it in just a single word we’d definitely go with “magic.” Heck, it’ll even adorn the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pro which means the technology itself has been refined to such a point that it’s ready to go mainstream

Cardano: Can this cushion the mounting bearish pressure?

Republished by Plato

Published

Cardano has garnered much attention from the crypto community due to constant network upgrades over the past few months. After the successful Mary hard fork, Cardano now aims at bringing smart contract to its system via the highly anticipated Alonzo upgrade. Its first-ever smart contract written in Plutus went live on the Alonzo Testnet a week ago.

While these developments were certainly immune and separate from a bearish broader market, its native cryptocurrency, ADA, was not.

Weekly losses piled up to over 30% as sellers ramped up pressure in the ADA market. The cryptocurrency suffered a sharper decline once a breakout above $1.61 was rejected during the last week of trade.

Since the broader market crash, ADA has been unable to rise above its upper ceiling of $1.88. Bullish momentum fizzled out as ADA failed to breach this resistance and sellers have dictated market movement since. Its latest attempt at a revival came via a breakout attempt above $1.61 but the 20-SMA acted as a resistance mark and denied further upside. With prices nosediving further over the last 24 hours, focus now shifted to its 19 May swing low of $0.95.

Reasoning

ADA was on a tight rope as it approached a defensive mark of $0.95. This region not only formed a support mark ranging all the way to early Feb, but was also bolstered by the presence of the 200 Simple Moving Average line. The Relative Strength Index moved in the oversold region and a reversal was expected over the coming days. Stochastic RSI even showed a bullish crossover and suggested that the trend could shift in favor of buyers.

If a reversal is triggered at $0.95, ADA could witness an ascent back towards $1.15. Visible Range’s point of control lay within this area and an extended rise was unlikely. However, traders must also be wary of breakdown as well. Failing to cut losses at $0.95 could result in a further 30% decline towards $0.673. According to Awesome Oscillator’s red bars, such a move was not within the realms of possibility.

Conclusion 

With losses accumulating in the market, ADA now resorted to its defensive line of $0.95. The 200-SMA moved within this zone and strengthened its defensive capabilities. A temporary pickup towards $1.15 can be expected once buyers return to the broader market but the threat of an extended sell-off cannot be discounted as well.

When Kurara finally launches, members of its ecosystem will enjoy a plethora of DeFi offerings, including superfast and cost-efficient token swaps, staking, liquidity mining, and more.

At a time when “rug pull” incidents are increasing at an alarming rate in the DeFi space, Karura will definitely provide investors with a reliable platform through which they would enjoy the goodies of decentralized finance, as the platform is backed by highly reputed entities including Coinbase Ventures.

Notably, investors’ confidence in the Karura project is very solid at the moment as evidenced by the overwhelming support Karura got from members of the cryptoverse during its crowd loan event.

Extreme Fear In Crypto Market, Is It Time To Buy The Blood In Bitcoin?

Republished by Plato

Published

on

The past week has been a brutal one for bitcoin and crypto in general. The market has taken hit after hit. So much so that it’s starting to seem like there is no end in sight. Coins have been falling at high percentages. It brings back a popular saying in the financial markets; “there’s blood in the streets.”

Investors have been reacting to this negatively. The Arcane Research Fear & Greed Index has moved back into extreme fear. Going down to the lowest it has ever been this year.

The Index currently sits at 10 in extreme fear. This means that investors are scared to put their money in the market. With no more money going into the market, the prices will go down. And we will see even redder charts.

Time To Buy The Blood?

“Buy the dip” is a popular saying in the crypto space. People are encouraged to buy coins when there has been a massive downturn in the price. Quoting this as being the best time to get into the market. But what happens when a dip goes past just being a dip into full-blown bleeding?

With red charts and downward-facing arrows, the market looks like it is bleeding. With massive liquidations going on and not as much faith in the digital assets anymore, the crypto market valuation is down.

It is always best to buy assets when there is “blood in the streets.” People are wary of the market. Weak hands are pulling out, dragging the price down. And that is when the long-term hodlers come out to play.

There is never any definite way to tell where exactly the market will bottom out. But a good indication is when assets are down so much that people are scared to buy back in. A time where it seems like the coins will never recover and that is the best time to buy.

Is There A Market Recovery On The Horizon?

A trend in the market has usually been massive dips are followed by good recoveries. People buy assets that are down a significant amount in hopes that they will make a profit when it recovers.

With institutional investors still holding on to their bitcoins, it looks that they still have hope in the market.

MicroStrategy recently bought an additional $500 million worth of bitcoins to add to its growing portfolio. Goldman Sachs had ramped up its bitcoin trading activities by partnering up with Galaxy Capital. All good-faith moves in the market.

But with the hash rate hitting record lows and the number of bitcoin mined in a day dropping, it could be that the market is headed for a » Read more

It will not be the first time that the market has pulled ahead after massive downturns. A lot of investors see the falling prices as a chance to buy back in. And more money goes back into the market, so does more faith return. Increasing the valuation of the assets.

Bitcoin has fallen below $30k. Less than half its all-time high. A crucial hold point for the asset.

Ethereum has fallen below $2k.

The total market valuation now sits at $1.21 trillion. Less than 50% from its highest market valuation of $2.4 trillion.
