Bitcoin cash price reversed all its gains from the $2950 high against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is now below $2600 and is showing a few bearish signs.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

It was a bullish run yesterday from the $2550 swing low in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price traded above the $2800 level and formed a high at $2948. Later, it faced a lot of selling pressure and the price tumbled below the $2700 and $2600 support levels. During the downside move, the price also cleared the $2580 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, there was a break below a short-term bullish trend line with support at $2560 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. It seems like the pair has trimmed most of its gains and is currently in the bearish zone below $2500. The recent low formed was at $2353 from where the price attempted a recovery. It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2948 high to $2353 low. However, the upside move was capped by the $2550 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA.

Is This the End of Crypto?

Bitcoin’s tumbled to a 15-month low. Ethereum is circling the drain. Despite announcements of a Swiss ETP, more regulated bitcoin futures in Q1, a German stock exchange launching a crypto platform, and institutional investors getting in, the market keeps on hemorrhaging. Is it time to jump ship? Cut your losses and get out while there’s something to get out with? Is this the end of crypto? The short answer to that would be, no one knows. It’s possible, of course. Apart from miniature countries floating in the Mediterranean with reputations for accepting money from questionable sources, regulators haven’t been welcoming. The ICO model is all but dead. The scaling headache is now a constant migraine, and Mark Zuckerberg has a net worth to rival the market cap of Bitcoin. Even those inside the industry like Barry Silbert are starting to sound positively glum. We've seen half a dozen fundraising deals fall apart over the past month after the lead pulled out. All is not well in crypto VC investor land Good time to remind founders that a signed term sheet does not equal cash in the bank — Barry Silbert (@barrysilbert) December 12, 2018 Die-Hard Crypto Fans Keep the Faith Yet, here we still are. We may be losing money, but there are plenty of us not losing faith. Pomp remains bullish to the end (although, he’d look a little silly if he didn’t). When crypto prices are down, the naysayers take a victory lap. They yell “told you so!” over and over again. Their enthusiasm will be short lived though. History will be unkind to those who bet against technology. — Pomp (@APompliano) December 13, 2018 And there are plenty of others still flying the flag for the longevity of crypto, including the likes of Nasdaq and Bakkt. Is This the End of Crypto? Erik Voorhees once told me you can’t change the world in a smooth predictable curve. And he’s certainly seen his share of ups and downs in this space. What this continued bear market has shown if anything is that the blockchain revolution is going to take longer than we thought. The bear market may not be over any time soon, but the heart of crypto is still beating and it will outlast the premature victory dances.
