EDC Blockchain took the position of today’s most prominent daily gainer, with gains of 871.81%. On the other side, Swipe lost 12.67% on the day, making it the most prominent daily loser.

What happened in the past 24 hours

Bitcoin mining difficulty dropped by 15.95% in the past 24 hours. This is the second-largest decline in its history. Bitcoin price plummeted more than 50% percent last time a decline like this happened.

Though this is not a surefire way to determine the price direction, it is very much possible that Bitcoin will go down some more in the short-term.

Honorable mention


Cardano launched Ouroboros Hydra, its off-chain scalability protocol on Mar 25. This protocol has gone live after five years of development.

The protocol increased scalability greatly for the Cardano blockchain. On top of that, it is using very little storage on the network’s nodes. Hydra could theoretically scale to 1,000,000 transactions per second.


Technical analysis



Bitcoin had a pretty stale day price-wise, as it did not move almost at all from yesterday. The largest digital currency by market cap is still trading just below the $6,850 resistance level without much fluctuation. While its price is above the weekly 200-period moving average, if the price doesn’t move to the upsidein the next couple of days, we can expect a leg down towards lower $6,000’s, or even lower.

Bitcoin’s volume drastically reduced from yesterday, while its RSI level dropped slightly towards the middle of the value range, currently being at the value of 56.
