Bitcoin Price Key Highlights Bitcoin price is still within its ascending channel on the 1-hour time frame and has bounced off support. A bit more bullish momentum can be seen as price broke past a small descending trend line. Technical indicators, however, are signaling that bearish pressure could kick in soon. Bitcoin price looks ready to resume its climb to the channel resistance but there are indications of bearish pressure. Technical Indicators Signals The 100 SMA is crossing below the longer-term 200 SMA on the 1-hour chart to signal that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, sellers could regain the upper hand and lead to another test of the nearby support at $14,000. Stochastic is also pointing down to indicate that selling pressure is present while RSI appears to be turning back south from its climb. A break below the channel support could mark the start of a longer-term selloff. But if bulls continue to charge, price could test the area of interest around $16,000 next then make its way up to the resistance at $17,500 or higher. Market Factors Dollar demand has taken a hit after China hinted that it might trim its holdings of US Treasuries. However, it has also been reported that China ordered closing down of bitcoin mining operations as a step further in curbing cryptocurrency activity in the mainland. Regulation is a pain in the neck for bitcoin price these days as ETF applications have been withdrawn in facing SEC scrutiny while South Korea continues to clamp down activity as well. With that, traders appear more interested in other altcoins that are cheaper and facing less barriers. US PPI is due next and could provide an indication of how inflation readings might turn out, thereby influencing Fed tightening expectations. Downbeat results could mean more dollar weakness, which bitcoin price could take advantage of, while upside surprises could trigger a channel breakdown. Keep in mind, however, that US equities have retreated lately on fresh NAFTA concerns that might keep risk aversion in play.

SwissBorg, based in Switzerland, is a WealthTech DAO aiming to change the way wealth management looks by offering cryptocurrency investment solutions backed by Swiss financial expertise to the world with a team of over 100 combined years of investment experience. Their ICO, active now, provides an accessible opportunity to manage a portfolio of crypto- assets through investment platform based on blockchain technology. Their Proof-of-Meritocracy smart contract system ensures there will be an active method for the community to influence the way the network will be developed. Disclosure: This is a Sponsored Article SwissBorg wants to revolutionize wealth management services with a community-centric approach powered by blockchain technology. Their ICO is active now, offering investors the chance to acquire the CHSB or SwissBorg network token. It is through this process of tokenization that anyone, be they individuals, DAOs, investment managers, or financial advisors, will be able to access the SwissBorg wealth management ecosystem and its portfolio system for managing of crypto-assets. Based on the ERC-20 Ethereum standard, and therefore storable on any ERC-20 address, the CHSB is a multi-utility token used to participate in the SwissBorg. It is available at the rate of 1 CHSB to 0.10 CHF (Swiss Francs). Cryptocurrencies such as BTC, ETH, BCH, LTH, and XRP are also accepted at current exchange rates. The token itself will be exchanged tradable in Q1 2018. Through its crypto wealth management platform and after having requested and received regulatory financial licenses, SwissBorg eventually aims to improve the accessibility of crypto hedge funds strategies to a larger audience with the issuance of the CSB Token, a token hedge fund. The CSB is to be hedged in a variety of areas through investment strategies such as ICOs and pre-ICOs, systematic trading, and arbitrage. Another boasted feature of the platform will be the RSB or referendum token. This will be a token that will be generated every time a referendum is held at a rate of 1 RSB for each CHSB an investor possesses. Any wallet will be able to participate. To negate the possibility of double voting, a snapshot of the blockchain is done at the time of distribution to verify. RSB will provide a secure voting platform for each referendum held and will offer a direct ETH or token reward for each vote applied. It will not cost CHSB to vote. SwissBorg, positioning themselves as a bridge between off-chain and on-chain worlds, seek to provide an investment solution that suits both. The ICO is live now with a 50M CHF cap and has received 11M in funding already. The ICO ends at the latest on January 10th, 2018. More information is available at the SwissBorg homepage and information on the CHSB token here. Also, read the white paper for a detailed description.

Substratum is a project aiming to power the decentralized web by allowing free and equal internet access to users around the globe. The project promises to allow anyone to host a node and receive Substrate in return for contributing to the network. Currently the product is in closed-beta allowing only a select few participants, supposedly under an NDA, to test out the network. Substratum’s price rose from $0.30 to over $2.50 in the last month alone, heading straight to the moon. However, due to some new information recently released, we must look at Substratum’s dark side of the moon. Substratum CEO’s background The first piece of news that surfaced about the Substratum project is that Justin Tabb, Substratum’s CEO, has a questionable background. According to Polk county Sherrif’s public records, Justin Christopher Tabb was arrested in 2001 on multiple charges ranging from Burglary W/Assault and Battery to Probation Violation. We reached out to Justin for comment. While the CEO being an ex Felon is by no means a positive influence on the project, it is something that can be looked past. After all, the charges were filed 17 years ago and people make mistakes. However, what is more disturbing is the fact that Justin has filed for bankruptcy twice: The problem with having a CEO with a bankruptcy record, is the fact that investors won’t have as much confidence in the project as it shows a poor track record when it comes to managing finances. Datadash Drama Many of you may have heard about Substratum from Datadash’s youtube channel. Datadash is the largest crypto youtube channel with over 200k subscribers. The channel promotes all types of ICOs and tokens and gives insight into developing projects. In a series of videos, Datadash promoted the Substratum ICO and advised about it’s potential. However, it recently came to light that Datadash has been compensated for his efforts by the Substratum team. While that in itself isn’t unethical, what is a problem is not disclosing the sponsorship to your viewers. Datadash also posted a youtube video explaining exactly what happened. I do believe the video was a smart decision by Datadash to come clean to his viewers, but I honestly do not believe the story about him moving the Ethereum address to different harddrives and somehow “losing” access to 100k SUB. The Merkle also ran a story about the Substratum ICO back in August, but since we were paid for it, we included a disclaimer like we do with any sponsorsed post. It is both unethical and a violation of FCC regulations to promote projects for payment without a proper disclosure. In fact, it is not even the promoter that usually gets in trouble, but the company paying for the promotion – in this case SUB. Overall Substratum has an amazing vision with a promising project, however until a working product is presented nothing is certain.
In the golden era of advertising, finding an audience was as easy as publishing an ad in a widely circulated newspaper, running a radio or TV spot, or putting up billboards in relevant areas. Not so anymore, but Blockchain can help.
