16:56 BitcoinMagazine.comKraken Delists Bitcoin SV Following Online Poll from Over 70,000 Users

U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken has delisted Bitcoin SV (BSV), per an official announcement on its blog.
In the announcement, the exchange noted that the digital asset had exhibited behavior opposite to its standards and those of the wider crypto community.
“Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for,” the post reads.
The delisting came on the heels of an opinion poll conducted on Twitter by the exchange in light of the recent behavior of BSV’s creator, Craig Wright. The poll gathered over 70,000 votes, with a whopping 71 percent of respondents voting to delist the currency.
Kraken joins an expanding list of exchanges and crypto wallet operators to have ceased support for BSV. The list

After a weekend dip across the cryptocurrency markets, the only coin that seemed to recover was Bitcoin Cash (potentially due to Binance delisting BSV, which seems to have turned investors to BCH). At the moment, ETH is trading at around $166 after dropping away from the 200-day EMA and closer to its 50-day EMA. Daily trading volume is now higher than $10 billion, which is still quite bullish compared to yearly lows.

Summary:

Despite some strong, intraday selling, bitcoin’s macro-bullish market structure remains intact. So far, we have seen a test of two daily levels and have clearly established support. At the moment, the bitcoin market is working on testing a third level, but is currently feeling out the strength of the supply and demand.We have yet to see a strong test of the overhanging liquidity zone in the $5,700 to $6,000 range so, it seems logical to see a test of that region before any meaningful, macro pullback takes place.So far, we have been content to bounce within the intraday price levels, but a key price to watch is the $5,250 level. That is the daily level we are currently testing and a test that establishes regained support would be a nice sign of strength within our current market structure.

13:34 Yahoo.com BusinessLatest Bitcoin Cash price and analysis (BCH to USD)

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is currently showing strong upwards momentum following a minor dip over the weekend. My medium-term bet is that the entire cryptocurrency market will continue to turn profits, at least until there is some uncertainty in the economic panorama. As some experts point out, a shift in economic conditions could offset the market, even though there is little correlation between altcoins and other financial assets. Let’s take a dive into what’s going on with Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash is currently sitting at around $316. After a major pump where volume spiked to yearly highs during early April, BCH seems to be stabilising above the key $300 support level, just above the 200-day EMA.

The political spectrum is usually divided into four main categories: libertarian left, authoritarian left, libertarian right and authoritarian right.

Libertarians tend to promote more liberal social policies, while authoritarians want to control what people do in the privacy of their own homes.
This is generally how political leanings are defined today, but technologies like Bitcoin and end-to-end encryption are changing that as our digital lives become, in some ways, more important than what we do in the real, physical world.
