Twitter Suspends @Bitcoin Once Again

TheMerkle Twitter @Bitcoin

It is no secret that Twitter has taken a rather aggressive stance toward cryptocurrency. With the platform banning all advertisements associated with cryptocurrency and ICOs, things are not headed in the right direction. It seems the “official” @Bitcoin account has also been banned, although no one knows why that is the case.

Another Twitter Plot Twist

It has become apparent that interesting things tend to happen in the cryptocurrency world, though not always for the right reasons. In the case of the @Bitcoin Twitter account, it seems Twitter has deliberately suspended this account due to “violation of the Twitter rules”. That is a very vague statement which raises a lot of questions, and also leads to a ton of speculation as to what is going on exactly.

One thing to keep in mind is that a lot of people have reported the @Bitcoin account over the past few months. This mainly had to do with the content being shared by the @Bitcoin account, which tended to favor Bitcoin Cash over the real Bitcoin. Claiming BCH to be the real BTC is something that causes a fair amount of friction, and it is not uncommon for people to take matters into their own hands by reporting this spreading of misinformation.

While it remains unclear what made Twitter make this particular decision, this account suspension can also be seen as a form of censorship. Although the social media giant has to prevent people from scamming others and spreading misinformation, it is not necessarily proven that the @Bitcoin account ever did something nefarious along these lines. As such, it may not have violated the terms of service, although it remains to be seen how things will play out in this regard.

The big unknown is how aggressive Twitter will get when it comes to cryptocurrency-related content in general. If people can’t even discuss this topic on social media anymore without the risk of getting banned, it is evident things have taken a massive turn for the worse. Rest assured this is not the last we’ll hear about this particular development, although an official explanation would certainly be appreciated at this stage.

Interestingly enough, it is also not the first time the @Bitcoin account has been suspended from Twitter. This has happened at least once before, although the account was reinstated pretty quickly. Whether or not that will be the case this time around is anybody’s guess.

It is evident that issues like these will divide the Bitcoin community even further. We are already dealing with two camps, those who favor BTC and those who prefer BCH. Events like these will only widen the gap between the two groups, which doesn’t benefit anyone in the long run. It’s a very unfortunate turn of events, although it is doubtful things will improve from here on out.

Bullish Surge Pushes XRP Price Above $0.3 Again

In the world of cryptocurrency and digital assets, there are a few interesting options to look into these days. Many people still have high hopes for XRP, although it remains to be seen how this asset will fare exactly. Following today’s morning uptrend, it seems XRP/USD is very bullish, whereas XRP/BTC is not necessarily seeing the success most people had hoped for at this point. More Bullish XRP Momentum? As is the case with any cryptocurrency or digital asset these days, the Bitcoin momentum will usually dictate the pace for all other markets accordingly. Today is no different in this regard, as there hasn’t been any sustainable uptrend with the price of Bitcoin going in the green. That situation will not necessarily change anytime soon either, although it seems all markets currently benefit from this particular trend as of today. In the case of XRP, one of the more stable assets on the market today, there is a notable XRP/USD uptrend over the past few hours. Following a strong 4.1% increase, every XRP in circulation is now valued at $0.304 once again. It is somewhat promising to see this value being reached again after XRP dropped below $0.29 over the weekend. The deficit in the XRP/BTC ratio is a bit bothersome, although this 1% change may be overcome relatively quickly. On social media, there are numerous discussions pertaining to XRP. A recent tweet shared by AURA MASTER seems to confirm the sudden spike in value comes from the South Korean exchanges. That is not abnormal by any means, as South Korea has become the proverbial China of cryptocurrency in terms of kickstarting price changes. As such, it seems there may be further gains in the XRP/USD ratio over the coming hours and days. #XRP 韓国マネーが凄い! pic.twitter.com/KLNLXRUwMu — AURA MASTER (@2002AURA) December 17, 2018 As one would come to expect, this XRP price increase has not gone by unnoticed by any means. XRPevolution is quite pleased with how things are going right now, primarily because this XRP price trend was expected to materialize for quite some time now. Although this is no confirmation the trend will be sustained for a longer period, green candles have been in short supply throughout the year 2018. We're is moving! #XRP #xrpcommunity pic.twitter.com/bgfTR6OM1a — XRPevolution (@Mzarka3) December 17, 2018 From a technical point of view, there is a genuine chance – taken with a grain of salt- the XRP price will bounce to $9.52 in the coming few months. While that would certainly be an interesting trend to behold, one has to acknowledge this may not necessarily happen immediately either. At the same time, XRP has noted very strong gains over the past few years and the next bull run could be very spectacular indeed.

For XRP, stability has been present for a while now, yet traders will be looking for the next leg up. If this is indeed the beginning of a massive uptrend, the year 2018 might just end on a high note after all. Until proven otherwise, however, this may just be a small uptick before the next wave of bearish momentum. Disclaimer: This is not trading or investment advice.
