Bitcoin (BTC) Closes Last Hour Up $193.90; Heads Up For the 2nd Day In A Row, in a Downtrend Over Past 30 Days

The Hourly View for BTC

Last Updated June 1, 2021, 03:016 GMT

At the time of this writing, Bitcoin’s price is up $193.9 (0.53%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 200 hour moving average has been crossed, with price now being above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

  • From PeterMcCormack:

    The clampdown on #bitcoin by UK banks is really an infringement on the pathetic amount of freedom we have in the UK. Also, it will drive innovation to more friendly countries.@TomTugendhat, I know you support ETH but the UK should be supporting #bitcoin too.We should talk!

  • From DocumentingBTC:

    “Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work was invented to escape Proof-of-Stake financial systems, where the largest asset owners can unduly influence the rules of the game.Thanks to PoW + full nodes, neither miners nor the biggest BTC hodlers can change the protocol.” – @Gladstein

  • From maneco1964:

    I just walked to the local shop and the Indian guy who runs it was asking me about #xrp #tether and #bitcoin and then someone walked in and said he is up £60 from £100 he put on a coin yesterday! it reminded me of the story of the shoeshine boy giving stock tips in 1929.

How Cardano uses significantly less energy while maintaining the same level of security as Bitcoin – News and Announcements – Cardano Forum

Cardano uses their native token, ADA, to assign which stake pool gets to produce the blocks in the blockchain….In Bitcoin’s and other proof of work protocols, 99% of the energy consumption is used to just select a block producer….Bitcoin is one of the most secure protocols but what makes it incredibly secure is the physical resources and energy consumption required to take over the network….Cardano provides the same high level of security as Bitcoin but uses its native token, ADA for consensus rather than hashing power from mining equipment.
