Over the last couple of weeks, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has been attempting to recover from the month-long downtrend that hit the entire cryptocurrency market hard over July.
However, despite recovering to around $350 last week, price fell about 12% over the weekend to below $310. After some recovery, BCH is currently trading at around $329 – $22 lower than last week.
Last week there was an important recovery which saw BCH climb back above all its EMAs. However, this momentum seems to have run out of steam.
Let’s find out why.
Looking at the chart above, we can see that the price of BCH was trading above all its EMAs last week at around $350. Unfortunately, during the weekend, the gains were lost and the price came crawling back down to below $310.
Volumes, which also seemed to be recovering, took a plunge to around $1 billion.
The bears and bulls are now tussling again, keeping any price increases relatively small. At the moment though, BCH’s recovery is well underway.
Last week, I mentioned I expected the coin to touch $360 if it kept up its momentum. This is still a target for later in the month.
Be prepared for sudden moves towards $280 and down to $258, though. To go any lower, BCH would need to break most of its price walls – something I don’t think will happen.
In addition, BCH is trading close to its bottom vs BTC – as I highlighted last week – meaning we could be near a reversal.
I recently spoke with Bitcoin Cash’s strongest advocate, Roger Ver, and discussed the most recent developments on the horizon for BCH. You can find all the details here, but the most juicy news seems to be the recent spike in adoption due to the implementation of smart contracts. Roger, like myself, believes key components for mass adoption are speed and flexibility. What Bitcoin Cash Oracles offers is a way for any user to easily deploy an “escrow” transaction that can be used to trade globally – without the hassle of trusting the other party.
I personally think these “trade escrows” will be key in terms of adoption, especially for work-related tasks. In a way, they do enable milestone-based funding, which may be the new and better way of conducting ICOs instead of simply creating an extra layer of complexity with STOs that require KYC and accreditation – something that goes against what we should be promoting within the crypto ecosystem.

About Bitcoin Cash
Bitcoin Cash was born out of the idea of making Bitcoin more practical for small, day-to-day payments. In May 2017, Bitcoin payments took about four days unless a fee was paid, which was proportionately too large for small transactions. A change to the code was implemented and Bitcoin Cash was born on 1st August 2017.
