Bitcoin price action on monthly timeframes has made a historic move to the touch the lower Bollinger Band – a popular technical indicator and volatility measuring tool. Although he warns there isn’t yet a sign that a bottom is in, the tool’s creator says where price action tapped is a “logical” level for such a bottom to occur. Unprecedented Bitcoin Price Action Taps Monthly Bollinger Band For First Time In History Expectations for Bitcoin price in 2022 were closer to $100,000 per coin and above. Yet the top cryptocurrency today is trading close to its former 2017 all-time high at $20,000. But unprecedented macro conditions has caused unprecedented price action in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Never in the past has the top cryptocurrency by market cap retested its former all-time high this way. Related Reading | Bitcoin Weekly RSI Sets Record For Most Oversold In History, What Comes Next?

BTCUSD monthly touches down on the lower Bollinger Band | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Touching the lower Bollinger Band, however, could be a logical place for a bottom according to the tool’s creator. Time To Pay Attention: John Bollinger Points Out Logical Level For Potential Bottom The Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis tool that can help to measure and predict volatility, or find areas of potential resistance and support. It was created in the 1980s by John Bollinger, who today is a frequent Bitcoin speculator. It relies on a 20-period simple moving average and a dynamic upper and lower band set each at two standard deviations. Mr. Bollinger pointed out the touch of the lower Bollinger Band in a new tweet, where he suggests the area would be a “logical” level to bottom. Bollinger did warn, however, that there still aren’t signs of such bottoming yet. In the past, Bollinger was able to call out the April 2021 peak by spotting a “three pushes to a high” bearish reversal pattern with striking accuracy. The analyst says his tools later confirmed what he says was an “M-type” double top. Picture perfect double (M-type) top in BTCUSD on the monthly chart complete with confirmation by BandWidth and %b leads to a tag of the lower Bollinger Band.

Before the recent selloff, Bitcoin was positioned as the next big thing. Investing and trading legends like billionaire philanthropist Paul Tudor Jones say it is like investing in Steve Jobs’ Apple early, or like getting in on the ground floor on Google. A new comparison suggests that even the latest price action is very much like if you had bought Google early. Here is a closer look at the shocking comparison along with the happy ending that should give crypto holders feeling uneasy some comfort. Bitcoin Versus Google Comparison Predicts Bull Finale Ahead Of Recession Bitcoin is a hard subject for many to wrap their head around. The lack of a physical object associated with the asset makes it feel more akin to magic internet money. Related Reading | Bitcoin Weekly RSI Sets Record For Most Oversold In History, What Comes Next? Those who do properly comprehend the cryptocurrency’s potential, compare it to like investing in a piece of the internet. It has also been compared to investing in Apple or Google early. However, a new comparison inspired by technical analyst Gert van Lagen shows just how accurate that statement might be. BTCUSD compared to Google during prior to The Great Recession | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com On the left, is the last decade plus of Bitcoin price action. On the right is Google just ahead of The Great Recession. With a recession possibly ahead of us, the comparison isn’t without merit. The Happy Ending For Google: A Search Engine Giant Emerges The above comparison has been changed from the analyst’s initial interpretation, but the comparison remains just as jarring. The example suggests that Bitcoin is nowhere near done with the current cycle. Although that provides hope for bulls, the same comparison does show the primary motive wave coming to a conclusion with wave 5, taking the price of Google back to below wave 4. Related Reading | Did A “Zig-Zag” Correction Shake Out The Crypto Market? If the same were to happen to Bitcoin, price could fall below the 2017 low eventually, reaching $2,000 per coin during any recession ahead – if it occurs. Many believe the recession is already here, which is why the recent crypto selloff has been so severe. If it isn’t, the market could recover to new highs and while the market is blind, the recession could finally creep in.

The first cinematographic NFT project “The Future Is Now Film” shows what blockchain leaders think of future governance systems: will there be even tighter centralization, a symbiosis of traditional and new methods of control or do we need a totally new governance system to replace the old one? Answers to these questions can be found in the two latest episodes, “Transforming The Future” and “Aligning The Future”, which were filmed at the AIBC Summit UAE 2021 in Dubai and Blockchance EU conference in Hamburg. Let’s dive deeper and see what futurists think. Blockchain Is Getting Closer to Traditional Institutions Several years ago, it would have been a bombshell to see government officials at a blockchain conference. Now, in both the AIBC Summit in Dubai and Blockchance EU conference in Hamburg, government officials are among honorable guests for two reasons. First of all, the scale of the change made them notice the inevitable. Secondly, some of the “decentralized futurists” have joined the ranks of centralized organizations in hopes of making a difference. For example, H.E. Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, recently became an ambassador to the World Trade Organization on behalf of Grenada, a country in the Caribbean. In his view, cryptocurrency projects today are “way more efficient than the financial infrastructure that we have today” and now he plans to pave the way for mass adoption. According to Fabian Friedrich, the founder of Blockchance Group, one of the reasons for the Blockchance EU conference to exist is the need to bring together different market players especially the decision-makers who currently govern traditional systems “to take the fear away and show them how positive this movement is, how many chances are in the movement for a better future”. Some have already achieved tangible progress in establishing the dialogue. Fabian Vogelsteller, co-founder of ERC20 Protocol, shared that negotiations with regulators despite the “back and forth” nature of the process, have already brought positive results because “everybody sees the benefits of this technology” while of course the “old has always had the interest to survive”. Will Governments Have a Saying? According to His Excellency Justin Sun, decentralized currencies are more advanced not only on the technological side but also on the philosophical side as they drive the inclusion of smaller countries. That is why it will be only natural for countries to “start to diversify the countries’ reserves” also by building the central bank digital currencies but “the philosophy behind CBDC’s will determine their results”: they could either join a competitive system or “undermine the reputation and the influence in the market in the first place” if they are made to be an appealing asset to use next to cryptocurrencies, for example by simply functioning as a financial tracking tool. Justin Sun believes that when the barriers of the traditional financial system go down, everyone benefits. But according to Brock Pierce, the 2020 US Presidential candidate from the Bitcoin Foundation, there will be beneficiaries and losers. In his view, Dubai, for example, will be the beneficiary of change because it “is doing a good job recognizing the change and adapting to it” but those who resist the change will suffer: “Look at Florida and Miami, they are doing a good job… They are the beneficiary of the change. That is what happens when you embrace the future. You get to be part of it. Resist it and it runs you over. The future is coming” Prominent venture capitalist Tim Draper whose Dad fought in the Korean War has shared a vision of what resistance to change could look like by giving a historical example of North and South Korea as a full government control system versus a “free and open society with democracy” 70 years later: “Average South Korean now makes 430 times what the average North Korean makes in a year, and that is when you adjust for purchasing power. And the average South Korean is 4 inches taller than an average North Korean. It is pretty clear to me which system works better” Dubai: Safe Harbor for Innovations One of the biggest gatherings in the blockchain community held by Eman Pulis & SIGMA Group AIBC Summit UAE 2021 has been held in Dubai a few months prior to Blockchance EU. Dubai is among the first cities that are “taking a tangible stand into abundance and allowing decentralization to flourish” as it is stated by Miguel Francis-Santiago, the Founder of The Future is Now DAO and the mastermind behind #TheFutureisNowFilm, with initiatives like the UAE Crypto Map. Dubai is “on its way to becoming self-sustainable” by leveraging the power of innovative-based ecosystems. Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, with a plethora of initiatives headed by Dubai Blockchain Center and the work of its CEO Dr. Marwan Alzarouni, creating a safe harbor of innovation. And the safe harbor has already brought some fresh fruits. Matthias Mende has launched an innovative celebrity marketplace Bonuz Market just after a couple of years of residency in Dubai and now the project allows celebrities around the world to engage with fans within an NFT and Metaverse platform. Sergej Kunz with 1inch Network bridges the crypto world with traditional banking by working with such regulated institutions like Sygnum Bank. The 1inch Network solution became the deepest liquidity aggregator in the DeFi space: the platform reached over $120 billion in transaction volume since its inception by solving the problem of high entry point and barrier to use cryptocurrencies. Salim Ismail of OpenExO, former CEO of Singularity University, by creating pilots with such traditional businesses like Procter & Gamble, Gucci and KPMG, created a space where new transformational methods of running a company between exponential organization structure and traditional businesses can now pave the way for preserving synapses of the human brain. The US Presidency: to the “Belly of the Beast” According to Ilya Churakov of the decentralized ecosystem Global Digital Club, such bridges need to be built in the “right way” so big opportunities could scale fast and reach mass adoption. But to learn the “right way” we need to study the old one, believes Brock Pierce, the 2020 US Presidential candidate from the Bitcoin Foundation. He dedicated his utmost energy to running the US presidential campaign during the 2020 Year of COVID, in order to understand the mechanics of the political system better and get ready for the next stage in making actionable change: “Why would I subject myself to such a thing [as a Presidential Campaign] if I was not committed to following all the way through… Let’s say it was an exploratory mission. To understand the mechanics of the system, you need to go inside the belly of the beast, to learn how to run a national campaign without any of the existing infrastructure… without any of the funding mechanisms that allow politicians to run for office, without a political platform… and to do it in the midst of COVID. My basic training is complete” According to Crystal Rose Pierce of Sense.Chat, only by “creating the bridge” between traditional systems and the decentralized world can we explore how the interests of different people can be put together for mutually beneficial growth. For the Pierce couple, there is no goal to simply replace the old with the new, there has to be a dialogue. El Salvador: Dreamland for All Nations El Salvador has been creating this bridge perhaps like no one else in the current political system, while becoming the first country to make this brave step towards economic freedom. As a country, they seek to voice their opinion, and make their opinion visible despite the pandemic crisis that was happening in the world at the time and a very clear recommendation from the International Monetary Fund in November of 2021 – not to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender. Nevertheless, they are going forward with the Bitcoin infrastructure in the country as they are seeking economic freedom, the dream of all nations. William Soriano, a congressman from El Salvador and a prominent Bitcoin advocate, explained how Bitcoin can help other countries by sharing how his homeland plans to “achieve the next level of prosperity”. The first benefit is cutting the unnecessary costs: “Civil war led to 3 million people leaving the country to the US. Those people send 7000 million dollars yearly of remittances. That makes them pay 400 million dollars in fees to companies such as… Moneygram… Ria etc. And this is just El Salvador, a small country…” The second step is financial inclusion. In just 3 months, financial inclusion reached 80% in El Salvador, rising from 1.2 million to 3.8 million people having access to a financial system. Finally, the country set up a plan to use natural resources like volcanoes and geothermal energy with the use of “volcano bonds”, a decentralized financial UBI-type instrument. According to an SDG advocate at the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, Marc Buckley, all countries should follow the example to “stop recreating” a cycle of insanity that leads to financial bubbles following a downturn, on constant repeat – a model Marc believes the world has been viciously revolving around. His Excellency Justin Sun is confident that countries in the Caribbean region will certainly follow the El Salvador example. But we can hardly expect all governments to act and follow this example, so what are the alternatives? Dying Animal vs. Autonomous Private Cities Dr Wolfgang Pinegger, founder of GLBRAIN and CEO of GAMB, believes that “centralization is everywhere”: from social media to banking and governments, the only light at the end of the tunnel being cryptocurrencies which might be “the only way to escape the centralization step by step” with a proper use-case. That is why GAMB Power To The Merchants has developed a solution that solves a major issue in the crypto space – high transaction fees for day-to-day operations. The company has presented a coin with zero transaction fees that will work also in countries where 1$ is a substantial sum for a crypto transaction. This will consequently bring cryptocurrencies closer to mass adoption, and therefore reduce the centralization. In Wolfgang’s view the change might happen quite naturally with a mindshift that is already happening in the younger generation: “But the young generation has already realized that they do not want to be part of this game… (ed. centralization) and the young generation in itself will just change it. Many people from the centralized world will not even realize until it has happened” Veronika Kuett, who works on autonomous systems with Tripolis Corp., thinks that centralized money is “the most powerful tool” that the government would not wish to lose, since it allows them to “inflate” and “debase the money of everyone else”. Governments might react with tightening centralization and they might even succeed in the short term. Of course, printing money helps governments pull resources together which means attracting people “to set up control structures”. But in the end, “this animal has cancer and therefore it will die”. That is why there is no need to waste energy on reforming central banking when “we need to rethink governance” to set up new systems instead: “The strategy is to spend the least amount of energy focusing on old systems but rather build the future, educate people and make them join the new system” One of the solutions according to Veronika is “to have many thousands of smaller entities where we have bonded communities, where we know each other, we trust each other” to “get rid of this anonymity that we have as residents in a very large nation”. The demand for autonomous private cities is already there with many innovative libertarian thinkers facing the limitations of “government’s ever-changing rules”. Irina Litchfield of the Global Autonomous Network also shares an opinion that we need to “create new models of living through autonomous lands, agrotech and regenerative farming, blockchain, new space and beyond”. If Mars colonization would make us rethink governance, why should we not start now? What’s Next? What does the future hold? What sort of future can help humanity reach sustainable goals and how?

Bitcoin price is in free fall and the cryptocurrency community is in panic. The high-risk, speculative asset class is living up to its notorious volatility and the selling appears unstoppable. At some point, all assets become oversold and recovery begins. After the most recent selloff, BTCUSD weekly RSI has reached the most oversold level in the entire history of price action, including two bear market bottoms. Bitcoin Selloff Sets Record For Most Oversold Weekly RSI Ever Bitcoin price today tapped below $22,000 per coin and is rapidly approaching prices closer to the 2017 peak. Many altcoins, including Ethereum, have already pushed below the past bull market peak in an unprecedented move for the crypto market. Panic is properly ensuing. The frantic attempt to cash out coins as fast as possible while there is still value left has prompted many top exchanges to halt withdrawals and better assess the situation. The selling pressure has also pushed the weekly Relative Strength Index to the most historically oversold level since Bitcoin started trading. Related Reading | Bitcoin Drops To 18-Months Lows, Has The Market Seen The Worst Of It? The Relative Strength Index is a commonly used momentum oscillator first developed by J. Welles Wilder Jr. in the 1970s. Wilder is also the creator of the Average True Range, Average Directional Index, and the Parabolic SAR. It is used to gauge when assets become overbought or oversold. With BTCUSD historically oversold on weekly timeframes using the RSI, what exactly could this mean, and what might happen next? BTCUSD weekly RSI is the most oversold ever | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Comparing The Current Crypto Collapse With Past Bear Market Bottoms A visual inspection of the BTCUSD weekly chart instantly puts the RSI below the lower threshold of 30 at around the same level as two past bear market bottoms. Readings below the lower threshold of 30 are considered oversold. In contrast, readings over 70 are considered overbought. More precise readings of the 2015 and 2018 bear market bottoms are 28.41 and 28.72, respectively. The current reading on BTCUSD is under 28, marking the lowest point ever on weekly timeframes. Related Reading | Bitcoin Bear Market Comparison Says It Is Almost Time For Bull Season Although this is a sign that in hindsight could pinpoint a significant bottom in crypto, because the RSI is momentum-based, downside could continue until the momentum has run its course. Price can also repeatedly test the area similar to how Bitcoin regularly displays readings of overbought price action throughout its history. Buyers at these prices would want to look for an RSI swing rejection setup according Wilder’s methodology. Much like during past bear markets, the setup involves waiting for the RSI to reach oversold levels. The rest of the strategy involves watching for the RSI to return back above the threshold, and hold above the threshold during the next correction. After the RSI makes a higher high, a buy signal is generated. Taking a position now does not mean it is safe | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Even then, bulls aren’t completely safe in their positions. If past bear markets are any indication of what to expect, there is a 50/50 chance of a double-bottom formation with a bullish RSI divergence. In 2015, a second bear market bottom took place setting a slightly lower low after a full 200 days. The RSI made a higher low, signaling that the selling momentum was extremely weak relative to the movement of the price, and the most explosive bull run in history followed. Was this the bottom sign that bulls were waiting for? Follow @TonySpilotroBTC on Twitter or join the TonyTradesBTC Telegram for exclusive daily market insights and technical analysis education.

The daily pump & dump is a weekday update on the crypto market providing you with an abbreviated breakdown of price action related to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other trending altcoins. Today’s summary: Bitcoin retests $30,000 after a rejection. Why is Ethereum lagging behind the rest of crypto? ICP posts insane intraday rally. Bitcoin Retests $30,000, Can The Key Level Hold? Bitcoin price was fiercely rejected from resistance at $32,000, sending the cryptocurrency back to retest support at $30,000. The fall took BTCUSD daily to the middle-Bollinger Band – which is a 20-day simple moving average. Holding the line could lead to further upside, while losing it suggests continuation of downside. Bitcoin is trying to hold above the 20-day SMA | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com A close above $32,000 is now the immediate hurdle for bulls to overcome, while bears remain within striking distance of new lows. Related Reading | Hammer Time: The Bullish Signal That Could Save Bitcoin Ethereum Losing Its Head (And Shoulders) Against BTC Compared to Bitcoin, Ethereum isn’t performing as well. The top altcoin is not representative of the state of alts as a whole, which have in some cases seen strong recoveries today. Ethereum could head down further against BTC | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com Upon closer inspection, ETHUSD is far below the same middle-Bollinger Band and 20-day SMA as Bitcoin on daily timeframes. The discrepancy is demonstrated in the ETHBTC pair, which is at risk of further breakdown if horizontal support is breached. Internet Computer Boots Up 20% Rally One outlier across the market today is Internet Computer. The Dfinity Foundation coin posted double digit gains on the day. Much like Bitcoin is visually more bullish than Ethereum considering price action and its location within the Bollinger Bands, ICP looks the most poised for aggressive expansion. The Bollinger Bands are a volatility measuring tool. When the bands tighten, it indicates volatility will soon arrive. Closing outside of the upper band isn’t always a bullish signal and can result in reversal. If volume does arrive as price closes outside of the upper band, a strong move higher is possible. ICP requires strong volume to keep the recovery going | Source: ICPUSD on TradingView.com The 20% intraday climb is to be expected given a 98% fall since its crypto market debut. At launch, it bid at more than $500 per ICP putting the coin immediately in the top ten cryptocurrencies by market cap. Related Reading | LUNA Aftermath: Total Crypto Market More Oversold Than Black Thursday From a risk versus reward perspective, returning anywhere near close to debut prices from today’s price of $9 per ICP would represent nearly a 5,000% ROI or a 50x on the capital.
