Welcome to the Daily Crypto News: A complete Press Review, Coin Calendar and Trading Analysis. Enjoy!
Bitcoin (BTC) has risen back above $11,000 after regaining ground lost on July 8 and July 22, when the world’s largest cryptocurrency by total value suffered bearish breakdowns that sent its price below $10,000.
At 15:00 UTC on August 4, bitcoin rose above $11,000 for the first time in 21-days.
BTC’s price stalled and then was retested along the $10,600 area on Aug. 4, proceeded by a breakout above $11,000, 10 hours after its most recent sell-off. BTC was last seen changing hands at $11,227 after a strong hourly candle broke above $11,050.
As reported by BitMEX Research on Aug. 3, Bitcoin SV nodes divided into three groups on Saturday, making the network to split into three separate chains. According to the report, 65% of nodes were located on the current tip, while 17% were stuck on the 210 MB block and 19% had not even upgraded and were on the old pre-hard fork chain.
According to data from Coin Dance, the 210 MB block was mined on Aug. 3 by CoinGeek miner and involved 808,633 transactions.
Bitcoin SV, a hard fork of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which is in turn a fork of the major cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC), successfully ran its own scheduled hard fork on July 24 as part of plans to increase its block size from the previously set limit of 128 MB up to 2 gigabytes.
The total computing power now dedicated to securing the bitcoin blockchain has set yet another record.
According to data from mining services operator BTC.com, the average bitcoin mining hash rate over the last two weeks has reached 71.43 quintillion hashes per second (EH/s), up from 64.49EH/s on July 23. The threshold was breached as bitcoin adjusted its mining difficulty at block height 586,672 on Monday 2:52 UTC – that is a 6.94EH/s, or 10.78 percent jump since mid July.
Bitcoin mining difficulty is a measure of how hard it is to compete for mining rewards on bitcoin. Just how difficult the bitcoin software makes it to generate new blocks adjusts every 2,016 blocks – approximately every 14 days – to ensure the block production time remains about 10 minutes at the next cycle.
Max Keiser, a former Wall Street trader and host of the RT program Keiser Report, said that he believes Bitcoin (BTC) will break $15,000 this week.
In tweet published Aug. 3, Keiser said that he is “sensing #Bitcoin will cross $15,000 this week.” He further stated that confidence in central governments, central banks and centralized fiat money are at the lowest level they have been in decades. He noted:
“I’m confident. So I just burned another $10,000 in $USD shitcoin. Correlation does not equal causation, but whenever I burn a few thousand $USD, BTC price goes up significantly.”
One of the murkier corners of the cryptocurrency market is becoming even less transparent.
Tether, the controversial token that serves as a conduit for trading coins on many of the world’s largest crypto exchanges, is becoming the means for conducting transactions on a spate of new blockchains, the distributed digital ledgers that underpin the digital assets.
The migration from the dominant Bitcoin and Ethereum platforms risks making it more difficult for investors to track transactions, going against one of the key tenets championed by crypto advocates since the advent of the self-styled alternatives to money a decade ago.

Here is the chart of yersterday :
Here is the current chart :
So yeah my friends, except if we have a sudden big up in the coming hours, the support line at 0.24 and the little support just under in blue can be considered as broken. We should now go in the direction of the support line at 0.21$ which is a major support line which hold us since december 2018. If we break that support… I really don’t know where we will stop… 0.15$, 0.1$, 0.05$, 0.01$? what would be the minimum for you ? Let’s share your opinion.
