• Los derivados de Bitcoin expiran hoy
• El precio de Cardano crece un 17%
• Ethereum testea su principal resistencia
El mercado de criptomonedas refleja resultados mixtos en la semana actual. Durante el primer tramo de la misma, las principales criptos reflejaban tendencias bajistas, si bien ayer los alcistas contribuyeron a recuperar parte de las pérdidas recientes (positivismo que se mantiene en la sesión de hoy). El lunes, la capitalización de mercado cayó a su mínimo el lunes (238.04 billones de USD), tras registrar el pasado viernes una cifra superior (267.7 billones de USD), traduciéndose lo anterior en una caída de la cuota de mercado de Bitcoin al 66.38% este lunes, para posteriormente registrar un 69.54% al alza en la jornada de ayer. Hoy, dicha predominancia de la criptomoneda por antonomasia es del 67%.
Goldman is negative when it comes to investing in Bitcoin
Bitcoin is testing $ 9,600 resistance after breaking the key level at $ 9,400 for the first time in seven days. This sharp rebound follows last week’s drop to $ 8,600. Higher volatility is expected during today's session as CME Bitcoin (BTC) futures and options markets are set to mature today and traders are closely watching to see how spot prices will react to this event. The contracts expire every two months and according to market analysts, they negatively influence BTC’s price in spot markets.
Goldman Sachs slammed Bitcoin during an investment advisory call for its clients on Wednesday, saying the world’s number one cryptocurrency “is not an asset class,” nor “a suitable investment.” The bank listed 5 reasons why you shouldn’t invest in Bitcoin:
1. It doesn’t produce cash flow like bonds.
2. It doesn’t generate profit through exposure to global economic development.
3. Bitcoin doesn’t deliver consistent diversification gains due to unstable correlations.
4. It doesn’t increase volatility given historical volatility of 76%. The bank noted the case when Bitcoin plunged 37% in a single day, alleging that its volatility is off the charts.
5. It provides no proof of hedging against inflation.
The bank added that despite the fact that hedge funds may be interested in trading cryptocurrencies due to high volatility, that’s not a big enough reason to invest in them.
Bitcoin price bounced of the $9600 resistance level and is currently trading around local support at $9400. If sellers will manage to break lower then the price may test the round $9000 support level. Source: xStation5
Ethereum bulls trying to push the price above the major resistance level
Ethereum - bulls remain in control for the third straight day. Currently price is testing key resistance at $215.00. In the near term, if buyers won't be able to push the price above the above mentioned resistance level, there is a possibility the bearish grip will strengthen pulling the crypto back to $188.84 support.
Ethereum is trying to break above the $215 hurdle. As long as the price sits above the ascending trendline, the upward move looks to be more probable. Source: xStation5

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ordered a blockchain research firm referred to as BitClave to close its operations and refund $25 million to over 95,000 investors. The project conducted an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017 and its goal was to develop a blockchain-based search network and advertising platform. The promise made to investors was that the tokens sold to them would rise in value as exchange listings increase, a decision that saw the SEC classify it as an unregistered security. Also the company will pay $3.8 million in fines.
