At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is trading at around $369 following an 8% pump over the weekend.
In addition, BCH is up close to 2% in the past 24 hours.
Since the start of the new year, the price of BCH has risen $179 from about $190 to $369. In essence, BCH has grown nearly 100% since January 1, but it’s still well below its 2019 summer high.
Will BCH start pushing higher again thanks to recent developments? And if so, what are the next levels of support to look out for?
Let’s take a look at the chart for Bitcoin Cash, courtesy of TradingView.
Bitcoin Cash is showing extremely positive signs. Not only did the altcoin rebound spectacularly after last week’s downturn, but key levels are also being respected.
BCH is also making strong gains against the market’s number-one cryptocurrency Bitcoin, as discussed yesterday.
Bitcoin Cash had been falling since late September after it lost close to 50% in value in just a few days. After a swift recovery during November, the altcoin came crashing back down well below the 20-day EMA.
Nevertheless, during December 2019, the market started to rebound. BCH has now crossed all its EMAs and has found support way above the 200-day EMA.
As discussed last week, the next big resistance levels are virtually non-existent, so we could see Bitcoin Cash pumping towards $400 soon. Afterwards, we might see some resistance between $415 and $450. It all depends on the seriousness of buyers.
In terms of volume, Bitcoin Cash is sitting at just above $3.8 billion – a little over half of early January’s volume. Perhaps it is too early to proclaim victory since volume is free falling.
Next week, we’ll surely have more certainties regarding the upcoming altcoin season.
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.
