Weekly Technical Analysis 26.08.2017

www.tradescrypt.com’s Weekly Technical Analysis gives investors important insights on fundamentally strong cryptocurrencies which include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple and AntShares(NEO).  It’s a quick read for investors at the start of the week which presents necessary statistics which could prove vital for considering investment position and making decisions during the week.



In spite of the seller resistance, Bitcoin has managed to stay above the USD $4000 mark which seems as the newly established floor. Investors have got in on 23rd and 24th when the prices were just above USD $4000. Bitcoin is currently trading at USD $4300. Investors who want to get in must wait for a short dip which we expect to occur in a few days.

Following are the statistical conclusions drawn from this week’s technical analysis:

Note: Prices have changed significantly. Once the new floor is set, we can calculate the OTE and the risk/reward ratio.

  • Market Cap: USD $71,638,083,124
  • Circulating Supply: 16,527,225
  • Volume(24h): USD $1,503,230,000

2. Ethereum:


Ethereum is gradually recovering its position which was lost during the Bitcoin fork period. It is trading at USD$330. Investors have entered on 24th and 25th when it was trading at around USD$320. We recommend this price as the OTE for the week which would ensure a good Risk/Reward ratio.

Following are the statistical conclusions drawn from this week’s technical analysis:

  • Market Cap: USD $31,766,976,757
  • Circulating Supply: 94,270,460
  • Volume(24h): USD $551,820,000

3. Litecoin:


Litecoin has crossed USD $50 mark. Investors who still want to get in must wait for a dip and get in at the blue buying region which would increase the Risk/Reward ratio significantly. Refer to our Litecoin fundamental analysis to understand the potential of the coin.

Following are the statistical conclusions drawn from this week’s technical analysis:

  • Optimal Trade Entry (OTE): Around 0.00004650 BTC
  • Market Cap: USD $2,893,886,049
  • Circulating Supply: 52,646,932
  • Volume(24h): USD $325,010,000
  • Risk/Reward Ratio: 0.64

4. Ripple:


Ripple was trading at USD $0.16 which was a stable floor since the past few days. With the current price at USD$0.20, Ripple has displayed a growth of 25% even after the correction. With strong fundamentals and growing community, invest and hold is our recommended position. Risk/Reward Ratio for this would be significantly higher than our recommended threshold.

Following are the statistical conclusions drawn from this week’s technical analysis:

  • Optimal Trade Entry (OTE): Around 0.00004650 BTC
  • Market Cap: USD $7,866,239,162
  • Circulating Supply: 38,343,841,883
  • Volume(24h): USD $177,526,000

5. NEO:


NEO has set a new floor of USD $35. We have observed a correction after NEO soared to USD$50. Risk/Reward Ratio at this point are greater than our recommended threshold. With strong fundamentals and growing community, invest and hold is our recommended position.

Following are the statistical conclusions drawn from this week’s technical analysis:

  • Optimal Trade Entry(OTE): Around 0.00867554 BTC
  • Market Cap: USD $1,901,680,000

Neo Gas

How is Neo Gas generated?

Recently our subscribers have expressed their interest to learn more about Neo Gas generated from Neo cryptocurrency and we will now attempt to explain this in the most effective manner.

Before that here is a brief background on Neo. Neo (formerly known as Antshares) is China’s first ever original and open source public chain project, NEO serves as a smart asset platform. Smart assets are the combination of a smart contract of blockchain and digital assets.

Considering the reluctance of China to accept the dominance of foreign companies (eg Google, Facebook, Amazon, Uber etc), we consider the same trend to repeat when it comes to cryptocurrencies. We expect China to put considerable weight behind the promotion of Neo in order keep foreign cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum etc on the back foot at least in their own backyard.

Now, considering the population of China and those many Chinese citizens accepting their own China based cryptocurrency – Neo, based on this reasoning and consideration, we see growing demand and rise in the value of Neo over the medium term period.

Coming back to our main subject – Neo Gas, it is similar to dividend credit to a shareholder of a company, Gas is credited to the wallet of Neo investors and the amount of Gas generated is based on a fixed formulae.

Neo Gas generated can be calculated on www.neotogas.com.

Neo investors can sell their Gas on an exchange or preferably hold it as an investment, as rising demand for Neo along with a finite quantity of Gas available may result in the value of Neo Gas to increase.

It must be noted that Gas will be generated only if Neo is stored on a private wallet and not on exchanges.

In case readers require any specific information on this topic, kindly feel free to post your comments and get in touch with us.

Analysis: NEO


A distributed network of intelligent economy

1. What is it?

China’s first ever original and open source public chain project, NEO serves as a smart asset platform. Smart assets are the combination of smart contract of blockchain and digital assets.

NEO allows for a smarter way for assets registration, issuance, and circulation. Digital assets exist in the form of electronic data and with blockchain technology, digital assets become decentralized, trustless, traceable and highly transparent. NEO’s underlying technology supports multiple types of digital assets and uses a digital certificate to enable trust for public chain, namely the assets issued by users via digital certificate are protected by law. On the other hand, for more complicated scenarios, users can use smart contract to enhance and enrich the functions of assets. Besides, users can also create smart contracts with other functions unrelated to assets. Smart contract, a concept that was first initiated by Nick Sazbo in 1994, has a history as long as that of the Internet. According to Nick Szabo, Smart contract can execute contract clauses when the preprogramed conditions are met. It is blockchain technology, due to its decentralization, immutability and highly reliable system that provides the very environment for smart contract to embody its value. (Source:https://neo.org/)

2. FIT Test (F: Future updates; I: Innovation; T: Trends): FIT Test enables us to check the uniqueness, alignment with respect to the current trends and future update of the fundamentals of the corresponding cryptocurrency.

A) Innovations: One big contrast of these competing platforms is their programming languages. Ethereum requires developers to learn to program with Solidity. Neo, on the other hand, will support almost all programming languages via a compiler, including those on Microsoft.net, Java, Kotlin, Go and Python, greatly lowering the difficulty for developers to write smart contracts.

B) Trends: Digital Asset Management, Management of real world assets.

C) Future updates: 

i) Innospace CEO announced $29.3M USD incubation fund, a collaboration between his company and the NEO blockchain team. Plans for the fund include the establishment of a new blockchain space in Shanghai, combining working spaces, startup incubation and acceleration.

ii) Partnered with Agrello to develop smart contracts for automation, self execution, accuracy and transparency. Powered by AI, Agrello will be a platform for nonW programmers to create their own legally binding blockchain based smart contracts. Use cases for Agrello’s tech include renting and sharing, freelance contracting, orchestrating production flows, and reducing administration costs for multinational corporations.

iii) With offices in Israel and Shanghai, Coindash will be a social trading platform for crypto assets, offering portfolio management tools for digital asset investors. Features of the platform will include portfolio statistics and management tools, investment automation, an ICO dashboard, and insights into other traders’ successful investing strategies. In the upcoming development of Nest Fund, a blockchain based smart fund by the developers of NEO, Coindash will offer advisory and prediction tools for Nest’s modern investors.

iv) The former CTO of OkCoin, Mr. Zhao Chang Peng is starting his own digital asset exchange, hoping to compete with platforms like Poloniex. Calling his new platform Binance, this new exchange will only deal in coin to coin transactions, avoiding fiat pairs and therefore avoiding Chinese regulations. In order to maintain a standard in mature digital assets, Binance will only list coins that meet its strict criteria. With a launch planned for later this year, the platform’s first traded assets will be bitcoin, ether and NEO.

7: Technical Analysis: 

NEO analysis Coinigy

Since the past few days, we have observed a significant price hike in NEO. Prices have soared from USD $7 to USD$10. The floor seems to have risen. Investors with a long term market strategy can still get in when the price corrects itself by about 60% and hits the blue region which is the Optimal Trade Entry (OTE) region. The strong community support in China makes NEO’s potential growth more prominent in the future.

  • Market Cap: $546,390,000
  • Price: $10.93
  • OTE: 0.00322591-0.00331973 BTC
  • Volume(24h): $46,520,400
  • Circulating Supply: 50,000,000

8: Comments:

NEO rebranding led to increased prices. USD $10 seems to be the new floor for NEO. Early investors, who had invested in AntShares weeks ago when we had rolled out our analysis, have started realizing portfolio growth at the moment. Investors who want to start today by investing in NEO will have to buy and hold for quite some time to see growth in their portfolio.

Stay tuned for our next article which will emphasize on NEO’s GAS.
