Crypto Brief Dec.10: Bitcoin price is accumulating before breakout plus Ripple, EOS, Tron, SOLO, Binance, LedgerX, Komodo, Huobi news
From the call on Bitcoin’s accumulating to Huobi Group’s HBUS is about to shut down. These are some of the prominent news in the crypto space.
Bitcoin price has increased since reaching a low of $ 6,616 on November 25. Compared to the fractal from the bottom in December 2018, the current price could be in a period of accumulation before a breakout.
While Bitcoin’s market outlook has been bogged down in indecision, the outlook is fundamentally positive. The total Bitcoin address has reached the new ATH with 28.39M addresses. This is a very common measure of the growth of a network.
However, the price is in a very different position compared to the end of 2017, when it was at an all-time high. Trader Cantering Clark pointed out the similarities between the current and recent Bitcoin price volatility of $ 3,300 in December 2018.
There is an uncanny resemblance between these two charts.
It would make sense that after the first major move up, that the first major correction and following accumulation period would have a fractal resemblance to the larger original.

Bitcoin hash rate remains stable
Despite all the fuss about an imminent surrender to Bitcoin mining, the network hash rate remains stable, despite the sluggish performance of No.1 in recent weeks.
Bitcoin’s network hash rate is currently hovering around the 100 million Th / s mark, occasionally surpassing that number.
The monthly lows are rising higher and there are no signs of scary surrender at this time.
Bitcoin remains strong at most other important activities, including transaction value and user activity online.
It seems the recent price action of XRP has confirmed that an uptrend will form in the short term.
Trader Crypt0mer noted that “buying interest kicked in around $ 0.21, a bounce to $ 0.25 seems reasonable if XRP catches on fire maybe a re-test of $ 0.285 since it gapped down hard”. The move to $ 0.25 will increase by 11% from the current price of $ 0.22.
