Crypto News, Analysis, Forecasts, ICOs and Events for the week ending 9/14/2018
Crypto News & Analysis
It's ironic how the Chinese government restricts its citizens from engaging with cryptocurrencies, and at the same time Chinese companies like Bitmain dominate the industry. The Chinese government has blocked access to 124 foreign cryptocurrency exchanges that offer their services to Chinese citizens. VPNs have helped Chinese traders of Cryptos get around the government imposed restrictions.
The Cryptocurrency Exchanges have also found ways to circumvent the ban by relaunching themselves with new domain names that are registered in other countries outside of China. The government has begun to intensify their scrutiny of foreign websites that have home pages in the Chinese language. They have also censured cryptocurrency media outlets, claiming that they were manipulating the crypto markets. The popular WeChat App has blocked all crypto and blockchain media accounts in order to comply with the government's directives.
Cryptos have come to another professional sport franchise. A baseball team is now a participant in the crypto world. The Los Angeles Dodgers now have the distinction of being the first sports team to be involved in a crypto giveaway. They are offering their fans a free download of a digital bobblehead. The first 40,000 fans that walk through the turnstiles of Dodger Stadium on the 21st of September will receive the gift. The Dodgers will face the San Diego Padres that day.
The fans will have 3 bobblehead collectable characters to choose from, pitchers Kenley Hanson, and Clayton Kershaw, or third baseman Justin Turner. Dodgers Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Lon Rosen expressed his elation about the giveaway this way,
“We’re excited for our first-ever Crypto giveaway, and (the opportunity) to explore an entirely new marketplace with our fanbase. We hope this piques the interest of Dodger fans, and will help launch a new age of collectables and promotions.”
Every fan that participates in the giveaway will receive a card with a private code and a set of instructions. They will be led to a webpage where a digital bobblehead token, randomly chosen, can be unlocked and put in the participant’s Ether wallet.

Crypto Futures News & Analysis
The line has been drawn and the the lower resistance level of Bitcoin has been tested again. Traders and investors have been able to log the levels of Bitcoin trades that have given credence to the lower resistance level of support. Not only that, fibonacci averages applied to Bitcoin’s trading levels have shown consistency as well.
We all wish we had the crystal ball that could tell us where the Bitcoin market will be everyday, but there is no such thing. What is available for investors and traders are the laws of averages. And the hope of the most likely outcomes. This is the fifth instance of Bitcoin bouncing along its low resistance level this year. When Bitcoin rebounds off the low it may not be as high as some dream, but it is substantial. A $1,700 swing in any market oozes with trading opportunities for buying and selling. If the laws of averages hold true for Bitcoin, the graph above illustrates a pattern that could be useful for both long term and short term investors. Although Bitcoins rebounds from its low level of resistance have decreased in size, they fall in line with the fibonacci averages.
Over the last few weeks rumors of an ETF application being approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission ignited a short lived bull run. Now technology and world events are so intertwined its difficult to imagine what will increase or decrease the value of Bitcoin. Investors and traders may be inclined to use the law of averages to navigate the stormy seas of Bitcoin price fluctuations.
