Bitcoin Technical Analysis

First things first: Bitcoin crossed above its 20 day moving average yesterday. Volatility for Bitcoin has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. For additional context, note that price has gone down 6 out of the past 10 days. Those interested in trading off candles may wish to observe the emergence of a bullish engulfing pattern, which seems particularly noteworthy against the backdrop of a downtrend on the 30 and 90 day time periods

Bringing back peer-to-peer to Bitcoin, a joint announcement by HandCash and Money Button

Currently, Bitcoin apps do not work peer-to-peer….HandCash and Money Button have been sending all transactions to each other directly, without third parties, for over a month now….Contrary to the theoretical way of handling P2P, which consisted on the receiver’s service to do the broadcast and transaction validation, we have found that in practice there’s a better way to do it: the sender broadcasts the transaction and at the same time it sends it to the receiver plus a signed message for the receiver to verify who sent it….Both HandCash and MoneyButton consider important to define a deadline where non-P2P transactions get deprecated from our services due to their unsustainable nature.
