What happened in the past 24 hours

Bitcoin defender or a scammer? Bitcoin name logo trademarked

The Bitcoin name and logo have been trademarked in Spain by Ignacio Rubio Menéndez, a compliance expert and lawyer. He explained that he now owns the logo and the word ‘bitcoin’ that is registered at the national level. When asked why he bothered with doing this, he explained that he wants to protect Bitcoin, at least in Spain. He claims he will stand up to anyone that will try to abuse the logo or the name of the cryptocurrency he bases his business on.

Whether he will use his (now) right justly or abuse it, only time will tell.


Technical analysis



The largest crypto by market capitalization spent the past 24 hours testing its immediate resistance level of $9,580. In fact, there was no actual “testing,” as Bitcoin skyrocketed and went past the resistance level in an instant. The move passed through $9,735 as well, but quickly came back below it. Bitcoin is now trying to find a price to consolidate at, and it will most likely test $9,580 as a support level.

3: $10,010                                3: $9,120


Ethereum followed in the footsteps of Bitcoin and used the momentum it created to push its price past the $240 level. On top of that, the price gain it made surpassed Bitcoin by half a percent. The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap stopped its bullish move at around $247 and then started consolidating slightly below that price. The $240 level will be tested in the near future, so traders can expect a solid and easy trade, in whichever direction ETH goes.

3: $225.4


Unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, XRP did not have such a good day. While the price technically did end up in the green when compared to 24 hours ago, the price gain is negligible. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap didn’t have enough buying pressure to pass the $0.19 resistance level it fell under a couple of days ago.

XRP’s volume is extremely low, meaning that traders don’t really have many opportunities to trade it.
