Honorable mention

Craig Wright Satoshi court case

Lawyers representing both sides told the public that the trial would start on July 6. This case is extremely important for the cryptocurrency community as it will effectively decide if Craig Wright has access to the 1.1 billion BTC that were initially mined.

There should be no more postponing to the trial as the lawyers confirmed that they are not planning to delay the trial.


Technical analysis



The largest cryptocurrency by market cap successfully held up when its $8,650 support level was tested, only to bounce right after the support level “test” was concluded. With bears reaching exhaustion, BTC quickly bounced from $8,650 all the way up above $9,120. It was stopped at the resistance level, and it is not trying to find its price level above $8,980 and below $9,120.

The volume was steady throughout the day, while the RSI level increased to 61.

3: $9,250                                            3: $8,000


Ethereum had a good day as well, with its price steadily growing after bouncing off the $198 support level. After the level held up successfully, the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap started increasing in price and reached $212.5, where it stopped (for now). Since Ethereum is in the middle of the range, there are no tells where the price can go from here. However, traders should look for bounces off of the resistance or support levels after they have been reached.

XRP fell under the $0.214 level, all the way to $0.21, just to recover and push above $0.214 again. Ever since, the price has been steadily rising. The third-largest cryptocurrency by market cap established its price above $0.214 but seems to have slightly lost momentum towards the upside.

XRP’s volume has decreased in the most recent trading hours, while its RSI is at the value of 53.5
