At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is trading at around $223. Even though last week the altcoin was showing signs of a possible rebound, BCH came tumbling down during the weekend.
Overall, BCH has lost more than 3% since last week and close to 2% in the past 24 hours.
Will BCH start a new consolidation phase around $220 – $230?
Let’s take a look at the chart of Bitcoin Cash…
We can see that the price of BCH recovered during early September, before crashing twice towards the end of the month.
Unfortunately, the gains of mid-September were lost and the price came crawling back down to below $230 in October, as the huge market-wide meltdown hit the coin hard.
At its lowest point over the past month, BCH touched $200 before recovering almost immediately to more than $225. Currently, it’s trading above $22o.
Last week, I mentioned BCH could be going through a period of consolidation which seems to be happening around $225. For the time being, I assign a higher probability to BCH going upwards, as the price has been claiming higher lows.
Nevertheless, Bitcoin Cash is trading well below all its EMAs. Looking at the volume profile, we can clearly see BCH has strong support between $220 – $230 and almost no resistance until the $270-$280 level, where the 50-day EMA sits.
If the market starts swinging stronger to the upside over the next couple of weeks, some altcoins like BCH have a high chance of making gains since the coin has already lost close to 60% since July, when BCH was trading above $500.
For the time being, I expect BCH to fluctuate between $230 and $270. If fresh investment comes into the market over the following days, there’s a decent chance Bitcoin Cash will continue making higher lows while it accumulates to the upside.
Right now volume sits at just above $1,2 billion.
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.
