Patent Applications per Country

What a fascinating animation!

Over 88 million patent filings are in our database. Plotting these filings over time reveals the most important countries/patent authorities.

While it was solely Japan, North American and European countries on top until the end of the the last century, China and South Korea show strongly increasing figures in the most recent years. In 2006, the historical amount was almost even. Then the Chinese race began. In terms of filings per year, China is already greatly ahead of all other countries and it would not come surprising to see China taking over the first place in terms of total amount of patent filings in 2019.

The European Patent Office (EPO) has already passed most European national offices, only Germany (DPMA) left. With 3.4 millions, PCT filings at WIPO (country code WO) are at a very similar level than EP filings.

Australia (just outside the top 10) and Brazil on position 17 are the only two countries that are not from Europe, North America or Asia.

XRP, Dogecoin, Ethereum Price Analysis: 05 May

Republished by Plato

Published

on

With Ethereum taking Bitcoin’s lead and correcting on the price charts, the likes of XRP followed suit to note a depreciation of its own. In fact, these corrections were even more apparent on the 4-hour charts, than the daily timeframes of these alts. Dogecoin, however, as has mostly been the case recently, was the exception, with the crypto hiking to yet another ATH.

XRP has had a topsy-turvy 2021, with the altcoin doing well to recover its price levels on the back of the SEC charging Ripple with illegal securities offerings. Back in April in fact, the crypto climbed to a 3-year high, upsetting many who expected the crypto to drop towards zero following the aforementioned lawsuit.

Of late, however, XRP’s market momentum has stuttered somewhat, with the month of May seeing a lot of sideways movement before corrections set in. In a 26-hour window, for instance, the altcoin lost over 15% of its value, with XRP well away from recuperating its losses at press time.

The altcoin’s technical indicators flashed ambivalent signals. While Parabolic SAR’s dotted markers were prepping for a trend reversal after the latest price appreciation, Relative Strength Index was heading north of the zone of equilibrium.

When Ripple CEO Garlinghouse was recently asked how the said lawsuit is going, he commented,

“So far, I feel good about how that’s been going, but it’s certainly frustrating.”

Dogecoin [DOGE]

The crypto-market’s premier meme coin, Dogecoin has been one of 2021’s best performers, with the altcoin recording YTD returns of 11,455% at press time. In fact, such has been the scale of its growth that DOGE is now among the industry’s top-5, with the alt enjoying a market cap of over $89 billion.

In the last 36 hours alone, the meme coin has hiked by almost 60% on the charts. According to many, DOGE is likely to keep surging over the week, especially since Elon Musk is expected to talk about the crypto on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

Market indicators were incredibly bullish for DOGE as Chaikin Money Flow was hovering around 0.20, and Awesome Oscillator registered a sharp uptick in market momentum.

Ethereum [ETH]

Ethereum, the crypto-market’s most dominant altcoin, has often been the crypto to lead the altseason. This was the case of late too, with ETH’s surge up the charts in late April allowing other alts to hike too. ETH was in the news recently after it hit yet another ATH, with the alt climbing above $3,000 and later, $3,500.

Over the past few trading sessions, however, some sideways movement was seen as the market lost momentum.

While MACD line was closely intertwined with the Signal line following a bearish crossover, Bollinger Bands remained open and underlined the likelihood of near-term price volatility.

Cardano, Bitcoin Cash, Filecoin Price Analysis: 05 May

Republished by Plato

Published

on

With Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, losing a lot of momentum lately, many of the market’s alts did too. The likes of Cardano and Filecoin were among them, with each of these cryptos losing their values in the short term over the last few trading sessions.

Cardano [ADA]

Source: ADA/USD on TradingView

Cardano, the market’s seventh-largest cryptocurrency, has had a very profitable 2021. While ADA’s bullishness was most evident in the month of February, since then, Cardano has continued to trade within the tight price ranges it set a few months ago. In fact, the past few months have seen ADA at its most inconsistent, with sharp bouts of appreciation followed by equally sharp downtrends on the charts.

Like most alts in the market, ADA was hiking too after the market fell between the 24th and 25th of April. In fact, the alt climbed by almost 25% in just over a week.

ADA’s latest attempt to register a new ATH stumbled on the charts, however, as corrections set in over the last few trading sessions. This, despite the alt’s technical indicators flashing bullish signals.

While Parabolic SAR’s dotted markers were well under the price candles and pointed to a bullish market, Chaikin Money Flow, while dipping slightly, was well above zero and underlined the strength of capital inflows.

ADA’s press time findings were in line with those of a recent analysis which found that buying pressure was yet to fully emerge in the market.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH]

Source: BCH/USD on TradingView

Bitcoin Cash, the popular fork ranked 12th on CoinMarketCap’s charts, like Cardano before it, has been hiking on the charts over the past few days. Unlike ADA, however, Bitcoin Cash’s bullish momentum hadn’t quite stalled yet, with the crypto climbing to trade at around $1,088 on the price charts. Whether BCH would be able to sustain its price action, however, was still an uncertain question at press time.

The mouth of Bollinger Bands was widening, at the time of writing, with the same a sign of incoming price volatility. Further, Relative Strength Index was heading towards the overbought zone, a reflection of the alt’s price action.

It’s worth noting, however, that recent trading sessions have seen a dip in trading volumes.

Filecoin [FIL]

Source: FIL/USD on TradingView

Filecoin’s price performance in the latter half of April saw the cryptocurrency enter the top-10 of CoinMarketCap’s rankings. Since then, however, FIL has fallen on the charts, with the alt found to be on a downtrend since last month.

While Filecoin did register a resurgence in value towards the latter half of April on the back of Ethereum’s bullish performance and Bitcoin’s efforts at recovery, it was to be very brief, with FIL correcting again over the past few days.

The switch in prevailing market trends was highlighted by the crypto’s technical indicators as MACD line had dropped below the Signal line, while the Awesome Oscillator’s histogram pictured minimal market momentum.

Bitcoin, Binance Coin, Chainlink Price Analysis: 05 May

Republished by Plato

Published

on

With Ethereum surging to hit a new ATH above $3,500 recently, it would seem that the altseason is in full flow. Such an argument, in fact, can be bolstered by the fact that other cryptos such as Chainlink have hiked dramatically too. However, such price actions weren’t common to all cryptos, with Bitcoin’s failure to sustain recovery having an effect on the likes of Binance Coin.

Bitcoin [BTC]

Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, is yet to recover from the massive depreciation it noted back in mid-April, a depreciation that pulled the crypto down from near $65k to $50k. While BTC has since recovered, the said recovery isn’t yet complete by any means. In fact, over the last few trading sessions, corrections seemed to have set in again, with the crypto trading at $54,621 at press time.

The lack of a sustained trend in the Bitcoin market was evidenced by the crypto’s technical indicators. While the Parabolic SAR’s dotted markers had just switched to position themselves above the price candles, the Awesome Oscillator’s histogram was below the half-line, underlining the lack of momentum present.

Despite its recent price ambivalence, however, bullish optimism remains high, especially since the crypto was recording YTD returns of 85% at press time.

What’s more, while BTC might have corrected over the past few days, the last 72 hours also saw the biggest uptick in whale addresses since 31 March.

Binance Coin [BNB]

Binance Coin, the crypto-market’s premier exchange token, has been hiking on the price charts since the month of February, with its pace gathering a lot of steam last month. In fact, such was the scale of BNB’s growth that the crypto kept hitting new ATHs in the first half of April. While market corrections did come in later, BNB soon recovered to hike again.

Over the past few days, however, thanks to BTC’s inability to commit to a trend, BNB’s uptrend had ground to a halt on the charts, with minor corrections coming in as well.

While Bollinger Bands continued to diverge to point to a degree of price volatility, MACD line was closing in on a bearish crossover with the Signal line. A sustained breach of the same could be a sign of a near-term trend reversal.

While a recent analysis had predicted that BNB might push past the $720-mark if the $640-level fell, that didn’t happen as the asset chose to follow a southbound trajectory instead.

Chainlink [LINK]

Source: LINK/USD on TradingView

After a period of tight trading in the month of March, April and May have seen the alt climb on the charts once again, with LINK finally breaching the much-anticipated $50-level a few hours ago. The said breach, in fact, came on the back of a weekly hike of 40%. With on-chain metrics flashing bullish signals, more upside can be expected from the alt in the short term.

While Chaikin Money Flow was holding steady above 0.20 and pointed to the strength of capital inflows, Relative Strength Index was climbing towards the overbought zone, closing in on levels unseen since February.
