In the 2021 bull run, cryptocurrencies that played on the dog theme dominated the market. It all started on April 2nd, when Elon Musk tweeted “Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool.” In the weeks that followed, Dogecoin – cryptocurrency’s original meme – skyrocketed from a meager $0.05 to a high of $0.75 on May 7th. That means a DOGE holder who had $100 of Dogecoin on April 2nd would have had $1500 less than a month later. With the Tesla CEO incorporating DOGE into its accepted payments for merchandise sales and supercharging stations and suggesting that people who subscribe to Twitter Blue should be able to pay with Dogecoin, DOGE itself (approximately $0.08 at the time of writing) still has massive upside potential. But many feel as though they’ve missed out on the asset’s heyday. They’re looking for the next 10,000x that only comes from early adoption. These five dog-themed coins have the potential to do just that. Baby Doge ($BABYDOGE) is a deflationary token designed to become more scarce over time. They charge a 5% fee for each sale of the asset and redistribute that fee to Baby Doge Coin holders – meaning the longer you hold, the more you can earn. It’s worth noting that Musk himself tweeted about Baby Doge on July 1st 2021. Currently, Baby Doge sits at $263 million market cap. Dogelon Mars ($ELON) is a dog-themed project that seeks to outpace Dogecoin’s success. As the website says, “I am Dogelon. Dogelon Mars. Join me and together we will reach the stars.” The page refers to Musk’s vision of colonizing Mars – though the controversial billionaire has yet to mention the asset. ELON is currently ranked #126 on CoinMarketCap with a market cap of $267 million. Mini Doge ($MINIDOGE) started as a deflationary meme coin, but it’s since evolved into a Web 3 ecosystem complete with a play-to-earn adventure game that allows holders to earn NFTs and more tokens as they go. Mini Doge has a market cap of only $2.3 million. Pulse Doge Win ($PULSEDOGE) is a community meme token that was built on Binance Smart Chain with the intent of bringing adoption to PulseChain – a new layer 1 blockchain set to launch later this year. The website claims that those who hold PulseDoge on BSC at the time of PulseChain’s launch will receive an equal 1:1 airdrop on PulseChain. This means that if you buy the token now, you’ll get double for your money. PulseDoge has a $7.5 million market cap. Dogechain ($DC) is an up-and-coming layer-1 blockchain designed to give DOGE more DeFi utility. For a limited amount of time, $DOGE holders will be able to freeclaim $DC tokens when they bridge their DOGE over from centralized exchanges or other chains. Staking bridged $DOGE will yield $DC tokens over time, while staking $DC will allow users to earn yield, prizes, rewards, and voting rights on the Doge DAO. This means that buying $DOGE now could yield exponential gains when $DC launches. Additionally, the DogeChain team has been conducting a grand-a-day giveaway for the entire month of May. There are still a few days left to get involved. 2021’s epic bull run is over, but there will be another bull market, and people love their dogs. Dog-themed projects will continue to dominate the memecoin space for the foreseeable future. Will you 1,000x?
Bitcoin remained strong above the $28,500 support against the US Dollar. BTC is rising, but it must clear $28,500 to move into a positive zone. Bitcoin started a fresh increase after it tested the $28,500 support zone. The price is now trading above the $29,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $29,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken). The pair could continue to move higher towards the key $30,600 resistance zone. Bitcoin Price Forms Triple Bottom Bitcoin price extended decline below the $29,500 support zone. However, the bulls were active near the main $28,500 support zone. A fresh base was formed near $28,600 and the price started a fresh increase. There was a clear move above the $29,200 and $29,500 resistance levels. The price surpassed the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $30,630 swing high to $28,635 low. Besides, there was break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $29,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin price is now trading above the $29,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $30,160 level. It is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $30,630 swing high to $28,635 low. The next major resistance is near the $30,600 level. A clear move above the $30,600 resistance level might start a steady increase. In the stated case, the price may perhaps clear the $31,200 resistance zone. Fresh Decline in BTC? If bitcoin fails to clear the $30,600 resistance zone, it could start another decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $29,600 level. The first major support is near the $29,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A downside break below the $29,500 support might send the price further lower. The main support is still near the $28,500 level, where the bulls are likely to take a strong stand. Technical indicators: Hourly MACD – The MACD is now gaining pace in the bullish zone. Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now well above the 50 level. Major Support Levels – $29,500, followed by $28,500. Major Resistance Levels – $30,150, $30,500 and $30,600.
Today’s Bitcoin price analysis is positive, as a dip to $29,000 was met with solid support and rejection, indicating that additional downside is unlikely. As a result, BTC/USD is expected to rise further in the next days, most likely above the $31,000 resistance level. Naturally, the psychological price of $30,000 for Bitcoin implies a solid purchase zone. We’ll look at why Bitcoin’s recent consolidation around $30,000 is a promising sign of future price increases. Bitcoin Fall 57% From ATH Bitcoin prices have fallen from a high of $69,600 to a current level of $29,350. The entire cryptocurrency market was destroyed by this 57 percent price decrease. As a result of the decreasing prices, a snowball effect began to occur, causing other crypto projects to be hit and sink even more. The price range of $30,000 for Bitcoin is critical. Many large corporations bought Bitcoins at that price. Furthermore, as shown in Figure 2, Bitcoin prices historically consolidated around those precise positions before beginning an advance. BTC/USD 1-day chart showing the consolidation area. Source: TradingView For more than a week, bitcoin has been trading sideways, with the $31,000 mark acting as solid resistance. Meanwhile, significant support has been established at $29,000, signaling a clear consolidation region that must be overcome before the market can continue to develop. The previous high was set at the same level as the previous low, signaling market hesitation. As a result, the recent $29,000 test could lead to another retest of the resistance. Related Reading | Eight Consecutive Red Closes: Is Bitcoin Headed For A Recovery? Will Consolidation occur? If BTC prices happen to drop below $28,000 again, the next support area would be around $20,000. However, it is more likely that prices will increase from this Bitcoin price consolidation phase. The first target is around $35,000, or a 17% increase in prices. After that, prices should target the next psychological price of $40,000. From there, we might see a slight adjustment lower, but in the long term, prices should break higher. This would mark the official start of the uptrend. In order for bitcoin’s price to establish a foothold at the bottom in the short term, according to Josh Olszewicz, head of research at investment management Valkyrie, volatility must reduce. “We can look at things like the 200-week moving average, which is around $22,000. We can look at realized price, which is the average price of coins that have moved on-chain, which is around $23,800,” Olszewicz said on CoinDesk TV’s “First Mover” program. “This [movement to hit bottom] will probably take at least all of Q3, perhaps Q4 as well, if it were to happen this year.” Other variables, like as the US Federal Reserve boosting interest rates, are also influencing bitcoin’s market performance, according to Olszewicz. He speculated that institutional investors may be in the forefront of the downturn. The average size of on-chain transactions, according to Olszewicz, is in the tens of thousands of BTC. Nonetheless, according to Olszewicz, ordinary traders continue to influence market movement more than institutional investors. Those learning about cryptocurrencies are now jumping in during this bear market to “test the waters” and “see if they can survive,” according to him.

Institutional investors have been a big part of the crypto market ever since they started investing in the market. Just like every other investors, institutional investors are not immune from the wild price fluctuations that characterizes the crypto market. This has resulted in big money looking for safe havens to move their money into while the worst of the market blows over. Sometimes, they turn to altcoins but this time around seem to have fond better luck with crypto products. Outflows Rock Market The recent recovery of the crypto market has been rocked once more by outflows. As prices had recovered, more investors had chosen to take profits and this had lead to more outflows. The previous week saw these outflows from digital investment products grow as high as $141 million in a single week, one of the largest in 2022. This had seen the total assets under management (AuM) decline towards one-year lows, now sitting at $38 billion. The last time AuM was this low had been in July 2021.

For the pioneer cryptocurrency, the inflow trend from the previous week had been swiftly reversed. It instead saw outflows totaling $154 million in a single week, making it the largest loser from last week. In the same vein, Ethereum had also followed in the footsteps of bitcoin with outflows reaching $0.3 million. Other altcoins would not follow this trend though. Digital assets such as Cardano and Polkadot have been making their way into the radar of institutional investors and this saw both asset bring in $1 million in inflows respectively.

This followed the recent trend of broad sell-off in equities that had seen more investors move out of them. Multi-Crypto Products Provide HavenB With so much bad news floating around the market, institutional investors have sought refuge in other places besides directly investing in cryptocurrencies. What they have landed on have been the multi-crypto investment products which have emerged the recent winners for last week. These multi-crypto investment products saw inflows totaling $9.7 million for last week alone. This has brought the total assets under management to $185 million for multi-crypto investment products, while the total inflows make up 5.3% on a year-to-date basis.

While others have seen countless weeks of outflows in 2022 so far, there have been only two weeks where multi-crypto investment products had recorded outflows, making it a safer bet for institutional investors during times of market uncertainty. Nevertheless, year-to-date and month-to-date net flows remain positive for bitcoin. It currently sits at $307 million and $187 million respectively.

The crypto markets have accepted the depegging of UST and the subsequent downward spiral of LUNA, both of which impacted the price of Bitcoin and the entire digital asset spectrum. According to a recent report by the Glassnode team, the Bitcoin market has been trading lower for eight weeks, making it the ‘longest continuous series of red weekly candles in history.’ Even Ethereum, the most popular altcoin, painted a similar picture. Bearish fluctuations damage returns and profit margins directly or indirectly. To make matters worse, derivative markets forecast shows more declines in the coming three to six months. Derivative Markets Hint At More Pain For Bitcoin According to derivative markets, the prognosis for the next three to six months remains fearful of further fall. On-chain, the report stated that blockspace demand for Ethereum and Bitcoin has dropped to multi-year lows, and the rate of ETH burning via EIP1559 has reached an all-time low. Glassnode calculated that the demand side will continue to face headwinds due to poor price performance, uncertain derivatives pricing, and extremely low demand for block-space on both Bitcoin and Ethereum. The report explains: Looking on-chain, we can see that both Ethereum and Bitcoin blockspace demand has fallen to multi-year lows, and the rate of burning of ETH via EIP1559 is now at an all-time-low. Coupling poor price performance, fearful derivatives pricing, and exceedingly lacklustre demand for block-space on both Bitcoin and Ethereum, we can deduce that the demand side is likely to continue seeing headwinds. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum’s price performance over the last 12 months has been disappointing. Long-term CAGR rates for Bitcoin and Ethereum have been impacted as a result of this. Source: Glassnode BTC, the largest cryptocurrency, moved in a roughly 4-year bull/bear cycle, which was frequently accompanied with halving events. When looking at long-term returns, the CAGR has dropped from almost 200 percent in 2015 to less than 50 percent as of this writing.

This negative return for Bitcoin is very similar to prior bear market cycles. Source: Glassnode When it comes to ETH, the altcoin performed far worse than BTC. Ethereum’s monthly return profile revealed a depressing picture of -34.9 percent. Ethereum likewise appears to be seeing diminishing rewards in the long run. Furthermore, during the previous 12 months, the 4-year CAGR for both assets has dropped from 100% to only 36% for BTC. Also, ETH is up 28 percent per year, emphasizing the severity of this bear. To make matters worse, the derivative market warned of future market declines. Near-term uncertainty and downside risk continue to be priced into options markets, particularly over the next three to six months. In reality, during the market sell-off last week, implied volatility increased significantly. Total crypto market cap stands at $1.2 Trillion. Source: TradingView The Glassnode analysis concluded by stating that the present bear market has taken its toll on crypto traders and investors. Furthermore, the Glassnode team emphasized that downturn markets frequently worsen before improving. However, ‘bear markets do have a tendency of ending’ and ‘bear markets author the bull that follows,’ so there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

XRP flashed lateral price movement at the time of writing. The coin register some gains over the last 24 hours however, it was quite minor. Bulls are not completely back in the market yet. For bulls to be back in the market, it is essential for XRP to move above the $0.60 mark. Technical outlook of XRP hasn’t completely pointed towards a recovery because the bears are still in charge of the price. The one day chart of the XRP has continued to depict bearishness on the chart. Over the last week, XRP fell by almost 7%. Although the coin has printed a symmetrical pattern on the chart, which also means that XRP has a chance of moving on the upside it is uncertain if the altcoin will be able to hold onto its current price action. This directional breakout from the symmetrical triangle could either make the altcoin trade towards the north or towards the south. XRP Price Analysis: One Day Chart The altcoin was trading at $0.41 on the one day chart. XRP was also trading beneath its long standing support line of $0.42. The asset hadn’t gone below the aforementioned price level in almost over a year. A push below the current price mark will make the coin trade beneath the $0.30. A break below the $0.30 price mark could push XRP near the $0.24 price level. Since the coin registered a small symmetrical triangle and it can be so that XRP can either go up or down from here, the overhead resistance for XRP was at $0.48. For bearish thesis to be invalidated the coin needs to trade above the $0.56 resistance mark. Technical Analysis XRP recovered on the chart and the coin moved away from the oversold region. The Relative Strength Index was above the 20-mark, which meant that the coin wasn’t undervalued. Buying strength came back in the market but the altcoin was still in the grasps of the sellers. If continued selling pressure remains then the coin might trade close to the immediate resistance mark. The asset was also below the 20-SMA line and this is in accordance with sellers being in control. This reading meant that sellers were responsible for the price momentum in the market. Suggested Reading | Ripple (XRP) Plunges To $0.43 With Bears In Full Swing Bollinger Bands are used to depict the price volatility of the asset.

On Monday, the cryptocurrency and Bitcoin market turned positive, attempting to break out of its current downturn, with market capitalization rising 1.5% to $1.37 trillion. The largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin , reached $30,554, up 1.2%. Bitcoin Price Sheds Gains The Bitcoin price’s downhill movement is becoming increasingly apparent. A rally towards $33,700 is possible. For nearly two weeks, the Bitcoin price Fear and Greed indicator has been at high fear levels. Because more investors are afraid to invest in the present BTC price, this Index can be utilized as a contrarian positive indicator, allowing smart money to accumulate huge orders. On the 6-hour chart, what was formerly deemed to be a confusing sideways market is now coiling into a very bullish pattern, indicating smart money involvement. The price of bitcoin is creating a sideways triangle. From an Elliott wave standpoint, the lengthy sideways action justifies a wave B pattern. Since the initial countertrend rally on May 13th around $31,200, it has spent disproportionate time in the $30,000 zone. If the technicals hold, another countertrend profit-taking rise with targets of $33,700 and $34,000 will occur before significant bearish resistance returns. A breach below wave A at $28,630 invalidates the bullish premise. If the bears succeed in breaking through this barrier, the next target might be $23,500, a 20% drop from the current BTC price. The United States’ macroeconomic conditions aided the rise of crypto markets on May 23. President Joe Biden announced intentions to reduce trade tariffs with China before the market opened, bolstering investor confidence.

Bitcoin for the past two months has been closing consecutive weeks in the red. The previous week had seen it close its seventh consecutive weekly candle for the first time in history, and although investors hoped that this would end with a reversal, the digital asset has gone on to mark another week in the red. This makes it the first time ever for bitcoin to see eight consecutive weekly closes, causing major panic among crypto investors. Eight Weeks Red Not Bad? Normally when a large digital asset such as bitcoin is closing multiple weeks in the red, it points towards a massive bear market on the horizon. Now, it can be safely assumed that the crypto market has successfully made its way into the bear market. This has been the reason for the low and negative momentum among investors over the last couple of months. But with bitcoin closing so many weeks in the red, it is expected to get worse. Related Reading | Long Liquidations Continue To Rock Market As Bitcoin Struggles To Settle Above $30,000 One thing that has been consistent when bitcoin has closed multiple weeks in the red has been the downtrend that has usually followed the market. Even though there are those who see this as a time to accumulate, the massive sell-offs triggered by these red closes have simply won out in the end. These types of consecutive negative weekly closes have become known as an unavoidable part of being in a bear market. BTC marks eight consecutive red close | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com However, the market has never seen anything like this. It would be natural to want to use historical context when something alarming occurs but with no point of reference, there is no way to tell where the market might go from here. Bitcoin In For A Bear? Even though there is no historical context to compare the current market conditions to, the opposite has happened before. Last year, bitcoin had recorded eight straight weeks of green closes. What followed this was multiple bull rallies that saw the price of the digital asset eventually hit its all-time high of $69,000. If this were to be taken and compared to current market conditions, with the eight consecutive red closes, the digital asset is likely in for multiple dips and crashes that will likely send it back into the $20,000 territory. So it is very likely that the bottom of the market is not as many would like to believe. Related Reading | MicroStrategy Will Not Dump Any Of Its Bitcoin, CFO Reveals There are indicators that suggest otherwise though, such as bitcoin trading above its 5-day moving average. But this is only a good indicator for the shorter term as longer-term indicators remain bearish. Small investors are also picking up the pace when it comes to accumulating BTC. The number of Bitcoin wallets with more than 1 BTC on their balance had recently touched a new high, now sitting at 844,906. While this points to positive sentiment among these investors, in the grand scheme of things, these smaller investors hold too little to actually move the market. So if there is to be any recovery, the digital asset would need some movement from larger holders.

On-chain data shows the Bitcoin taker buy/sell ratio is now approaching a crossover with the “1” level, a sign that could be bullish for the crypto’s price. Bitcoin Taker Buy/Sell Ratio Observes Rise, Almost Reaches A Value Of 1 As explained by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, signs may suggest that a local top could soon be coming for the crypto. The “taker buy/sell ratio” is an indicator that measures the ratio between the Bitcoin long volume and the short volume. When the value of the metric is greater than one, it means the taker buy volume is higher than the sell volume right now. This trend indicates that a bullish sentiment is dominant in the market at the moment. Related Reading | Bitcoin NUPL Touches Lows Not Seen Since COVID Crash, Rebound Soon? On the other hand, the ratio being below one implies the majority sentiment is bearish currently as taker sell volume is more than the long volume.
