#Bitcoin Has Bitcoin Price Really Surpassed the $6800 Resistance? Is the Bear Market Over? Published 1 week ago on May 11, 2019 By Nadja Eriksson Share Tweet Bitcoin recently moved over the $6800 resistance level and recorded a yearly high at around $6991 on the coinbase chart before correcting downwards. Currently, bitcoin seems to be trading in a range between $6700 and $6900. The total cryptocurrency market capitalization also surpassed the $200 billion mark today. Bitcoin Price above $6800: Is the Bear Market Over? BTC is currently trading around $6828 (according to coinbase chart) and is facing a lot of selling pressure around the $6900 and $7000 range. However, bitcoin has already moved above the $6800 resistance level which was being called the most major long term resistance level for bitcoin. BTCUSD Chart- Coinbase Even though the whole cryptocurrency market was expecting a totally different move from bitcoin due to the recent negative news regarding the Bitfinex & Tether controversy and the Binance exchange hack. However, rather than correcting downwards, the cryptocurrency turned bullish and broke through all major resistance levels. However, it is still unclear whether the markets have really turned bullish or is the market being driven by exchanges and large bitcoin bulls alone. It is very essential for BTC price to maintain its position above the $6800 level for at least a few days before the actual price activity can be analyzed and it can be noted that the bear market has finally ended. BTC still remains at a risk of downfall as there is not any specific adoption news or positive reason to back the sudden price surge apart from Facebook unbanning cryptocurrency advertisements and the Fidelity cryptocurrency markets. A lot of short order on the Bitfinex exchange are also suggesting that the bears have started to close down their positions. What are your thoughts on the sudden bitcoin surge?

Kevin O’Leary calls Bitcoin Worthless Famous as the founder of Softkey, a startup that earns annual revenue of around $29 million and a host on the American business reality series Shark Tank, Kevin O’Leary is a celebrity amongst the business class in the United States of America. During the interview published on 14th May 2019, Kevin expressed his thoughts over the king of cryptocurrencies bitcoin and called it a useless currency as the people who accept it just wants to hedge against the high volatility of the virtual currency. This comes in the midst of the current bitcoin surge as the virtual currency doubled its value in just a few days from below $4000 to more than $8000. Kevin also explained why he has such negative views on bitcoin giving the instance of how once he tried using bitcoin for a real estate transaction in Switzerland. He said that it is not possible to get in and out of bitcoin while transacting in huge amounts. He also gave an example stating that if one wants to buy real estate in Switzerland for $10 million. The seller wants a guarantee that the value comes back to him as currency at ten and the buyer has to hedge the risk of the cryptocurrency, hence it is not a real currency. Kevin said that the seller or the receiver would never want to take the risk of such high volatility and thus BTC is worthless.

Whole Foods and Others accepting Bitcoin using Spedn: A company called Flexa in collaboration with Gemini exchange which is owned by the Winklevoss Twins has managed to persuade a lot of big retailers including Nordstrom, Crate and Barrel & Whole Foods to configure the same scanners that they are already using for payments from other digital wallets like Apple Pay to work with their cryptocurrency payments app called Spedn. Partnering with @FlexaHQ to power the future of payments using #crypto easily. Now accepted at major retailers. Download SPEDN in the Apple store! #CryptoNotCredit https://t.co/zrpspPmkN9 pic.twitter.com/KVAB8BL5zv — Gemini (@Gemini) May 13, 2019 Everything is handled on the backend of the application so that the cashier need not even have heard of bitcoin, let alone understand how to manage payment in cryptocurrency. The merchant has the choice in receiving immediately converted fiat or actually taking and holding the cryptocurrency. The Spedn app lets consumers pay in bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum and GUSD (Gemini Dollar), the Gemini backed stablecoin. This new solution actually uses the existing systems and offers really only upsides for the companies as they don’t have to do any special training for their staff and there is no new hardware required and just a software upgrade. It is worth noting that this is still in its early experimental stages for all the retailers which are cooperating with this scheme and things may of course change in the future. The thing to keep in mind here is that Bakkt is likely launching a massive payment processing service for cryptocurrency in the very near future as well and it could be a big competitor to what Gemini and Flexa are offering. The company will also need to prove itself with consumers and get people to actually go out, download and use the Spedn app. Can this be a game changer in retailer adoption of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies? Let us know about your thoughts in the comments section below.
