MANA Price Gets 2.5% Weekly Boost As Bulls Charge For Reversal

This week, MANA showcased a slew of 2.5% gains. EMAs are also moving above Decentraland’s token’s price. MANA price tallies 2.5% gains MACD looks flat and not showing any bullish sign Decentraland market cap at $1.29 billion At this point, MANA’s price is close to its lowest for 2022. The bears are eyeing a new low for the year while also trying to get on top of the costs below the range of $1.0. Sometime in August, MANA’s price plunged which negatively impacted buyer expectations especially as the coin is still getting massive rejections resulting from the trend reversal.

MANA Price Down In Market Value  According to CoinMarktCap, MANA price has nosedived by 3.04% or trading at $0.6949 as of press time. MANA price has depreciated in market value, prompting the bulls to wait for the next big wave or a confirmation of a trend reversal before moving to consolidate into long positions. From July to August, MANA appeared to have allowed the bulls’ entry but has failed to offshoot above the $1.0 price level. With that being said, the key resistance level has been marked at $1.0 while the support zone is at $0.64. Evidently, MANA/BTC has also dropped by 2.9%. After MANA’s price dipped below the 200-day EMA as seen on April 5, 2022, MANA has retreated further since then. On the other hand, all the other EMAs such as 20, 50, 100, and 200 are doing great as they sprint above the current price. The buyers are trying to push the price near the 20-EMA. MANA’s RSI shows a spike from the lower regions. This climb validates the optimistic outlook for the token. Meanwhile, the MACD is looking flat into the negative range as seen in the daily price chart. MACD Shows No Trace Of Bullish Momentum The MACD is not demonstrating any bullish momentum as both the trendlines are moving over the neutral range. RSI is looking bullish as the MANA bulls shoot for a slight bounce above the 20 EMAs. On the other hand, the key support level is near the current levels which means the bears can attempt to short-cover at the earliest possible time. Decentraland is said to be one of the few cryptos that buyers and traders should have on their active wallets, with its huge market cap of over $1.29 billion as of this writing and circulating supply that surpasses that of Bitcoin by at most 100 times. Many blockchain-based or NFT games have aspired for decentralization but it seems Decentraland remains to be one of the few that are ambitious enough to make it happen.  Related Reading: BNB Price Watch: The Charts Look Good For Traders – More Green On The Plate?

Ep01- Dr. Ruja – Companion Guide For BBC’s “The Missing Cryptoqueen” Podcast

Is Dr. Ruja Ignatova the cryptocurrency world’s biggest scammer? The competition is fierce, there are so many faces and stories fighting for that spot, but none of them is on the FBI Most Wanted List. Dr. Ruja is. Great, but, why is NewsBTC revisiting the 2019 true crime podcast “The Missing Cryptoqueen”? Because Jamie Bartlett, the journalist behind the project, just released a new episode.  Episode 10 of The Missing Cryptoqueen is now out. The hunt it back on: Israel, Dubai, Luxembourg, The Eurovision Song Contest & Krispy Kremes. Sorry, it’s taken me & ⁦@GeorgiaJCatt⁩ a while. And welcome to our new teammate ⁦@ByrnesyGsy⁩! https://t.co/bfZWgBqeeP — Jamie Bartlett (@JamieJBartlett) September 28, 2022 Is there new information? Did they FIND Dr. Ruja Ignatova The only thing we know for sure is that there’ll be a few new episodes, and that’s all we needed to hear. A BBC production, “The Missing Cryptoqueen” features various music and sound design, witness testimonies, interviews, and sound bites. There’s even original music in this podcasting extravaganza.  Related Reading: How Bitcoin Phishing Scams Are Stealing Millions NewsBTC will produce companion pieces for each of “The Missing Cryptoqueen’s” episodes. With summaries, quotes from the episode, and extra material from all over the web, this is the feature you people didn’t know you needed. Have this window open as you listen to each episode, it’ll enhance the already phenomenal experience. You can download episodes directly at the BBC, or listen to “The Missing Cryptoqueen” through Apple, Spotify, or iVoox. About Episode One – Dr. Ruja This is the introductory episode, it presents Dr. Ruja Ignatova and the OneCoin world. We feel the size of the scam, we hear from the people that fell for it and the voices of the true believers. It begins with Bitcoin and Satoshi Nakamoto’s story, goes to a OneCoin seminar in Mbarara, a town in Western Uganda, and ends with Dr. Ruja’s disappearance in October 2017. In “The Missing Cryptoqueen’s” first episode we can also see what a charismatic leader could do with bitcoin’s story and narrative. If Dr. Ruja Ignatova didn’t plagiarize it, she at least was heavily inspired by Satoshi Nakamoto’s mystique and discourse. Using quotes from her speeches, we hear Dr. Ruja speaking about a rotten financial system and corrupt banking institutions. About the possibility of banking the unbanked and what that would do for the world. About bitcoin’s pizza day story and how that could happen to OneCoin holders. However, Dr. Ruja’s OneCoin was better than bitcoin. It was here to replace it, in fact. Whenever you hear that, run. That should’ve been the witnesses’ first warning. In episode one, we hear about the OneLife network. The social part of the scam. We hear from a UK victim who assisted to the webinars, from a OneLife employee and insider, and we listen to an African song about OneCoin. There’s emotion in all of their voices. And an open wound. Near the end, we hear about 2017 and Dr. Ruja’s disappearance from people that were there at the scene. What happened? So far, there are nine more episodes of BBC’s “The Missing Cryptoqueen.” Let’s hope we get an answer to that question. BTC price chart for 09/28/2022 on Bitstamp | Source: BTC/USD on TradingView.com Quotes From Ep. 01 – “Dr. Ruja” “Then, in late 2017, Dr. Ruja disappeared. One of Europe’s richest women, a woman who seemed destined to change the world had vanished.” “It was impossible not to be impressed by Dr. Ruja. She appeared on the front cover of prestigious business magazines, she has degrees from Oxford and Konstanz University and is fluent in several languages.” “Thousands of people were filling stadiums to hear Dr. Ruja talk, to buy OneCoin and join this financial revolution.” “But in October 2017, there was a big OneCoin event in Lisbon, Portugal and Dr. Ruja was scheduled to speak.” Extra Material And Episode Credits This guide’s extra material comes courtesy of the podcast series’s IMDB page. In the description, IMDB gives us a good overview of what to expect from “The Missing Cryptoqueen.” “Dr Ruja Ignatova called herself the Cryptoqueen. She told people she had invented a cryptocurrency to rival Bitcoin, and persuaded millions to join her financial revolution, investing billions. Then she disappeared. Why?

Fantom Surprises With 5% Rally In Last 24 Hours – More Gains Ahead?

Fantom (FTM) bounces back with a 5% rally in over 24 hours after it hit a massive low yesterday. On-chain metrics hint at a bull run. Still, buyers are still advised to be extra cautious. FTM rallied 5% in the past 24 hours Fantom’s on-chain metrics hinting a bullish movement FTM experiencing strong selling pressure FTM bulls are still trying to push through the resistance. Evidently, the downward movement in the past couple of weeks highlights that the lower timeframe is generally bearish. Related Reading: BNB Price Watch: The Charts Look Good For Traders – More Green On The Plate? Fantom Down Since August Judging by the 12-hour chart, FTM is seen to spiral downward which has been in progress since August when Fantom breached below $0.38 as it retests the $0.33 resistance zone and key support at $0.286. A higher timeframe range was also spotted on the charts from $0.31 to $.53. Notably, the $0.412 range has been the resistance and support level as seen since May. Chart: TradingView.com The two-hour chart for FTM reveals that another range may be formed. One was able to reach the range of $0.242 to 0.217. According to CoinMarketCap, FTM price has slumped by 5.41% or trading at $0.2221 as of this writing. While there is a possibility of a breach, the positioning of FTM sets it for a downtrend, especially with the increase in selling opportunities. FTM RSI At 64, Hinting At A Bullish Movement The crypto’s relative strength index peaking at 64 shows an obvious bullish movement with the OBV moving sideways as seen in the past week. With that in mind, even with FTM bouncing back from its low, both the price action and OBV aren’t hinting at any breakout at this point. The resistance zone which worked as the key support in September could make significant strides again in the next couple of hours. While buying FTM is a tempting feat it will only be an advantage when you do so under certain circumstances like a bullish market. However, Fantom is not shooting for a long-term range and is in fact even leaning towards a long-term downtrend. A low-risk short may be apparent in the $0.244 range. An hourly session that closes above the $0. 251 zone will invalidate the bearish momentum. The bearish targets are spotted right at the middle of the range and include their lows.

If the selling pressure subsides, then AAVE price could shoot way up which is happening right now. Chart: TradingView.com AAVE Price Climbs By 7.35% According to CoinMarketCap, the coin’s price has skyrocketed by 7.35% or trading at $79.64 as of press time which means it has successfully breached the $77.53 level that it has been trying to do so for the past couple of days. The Bollinger Bands Indicator higher band is now seen at the $78.63 mark which is now the key resistance for AAVE while the lower band is seen at the $73.83 mark. More so, RSI has previously manifested a decline to 40 but has shown recovery and is now looking more balanced. The 4-hour price chart reveals that the bears have been dominant for many hours but the bulls are now taking over.
