TL;DR Breakdown

  • Ted Budd reintroduces crypto crime bill
  • Ted bill comes in wake of capitol invasion

Towards putting an end to terrorist use of cryptocurrencies, Ted Budd, a US legislator, has reintroduced his Financial Technology Protection Act.

The US legislator back in February 2018 and January 2019 introduced the bill as the house passed it both times only for it to stall at the senate.

Budd’s most recent bill is titled “To establish an Independent Financial Technology Task Force to Combat Terrorism and Illicit Financing, to provide rewards for information leading to convictions related to terrorist use of digital currencies, to establish a Fintech Leadership in Innovation and Financial Intelligence Program to encourage the development of tools and programs to combat terrorist and illicit use of digital currencies, and for other purposes.”

The bill has been endorsed by other US legislators like Byron Donalds, Darren Soto, among others.

Crypto crime bill in wake of capitol invasion

Chainalysis, in a recent research, linked 500 million BTC payments to members of the alt-right group said to be part of the capitol riot.

Budd’s office released a statement after the incident stating that his bill would stop criminals and terrorists from using new technologies to wreak havoc on Americans.

However, in another Chainalysis report, terrorist financing and illegal crypto use only mark one percent of crypto activities, but it remains a problem in the US.

US legislators in support of crypto

Several US legislators are in support of crypto and have continued to argue in favor of the currency.

Budd, Lynch, Davidson, and Soto, who are members of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, last December, sent a letter to the SEC asking for more clarification on companies that can and can’t transact in cryptocurrencies.

However, as much as pro-crypto lawmakers continue to propose laws in favor of cryptocurrencies, many don’t make it far.

TL;DR Breakdown

  •  ADA/USD currently trades above the previous monthly high of $0.36
  •  Cardano continues bullish momentum
  •  Resistance turned support at $0.35 

Cardano currently trades around $0.36, having a market cap of $11 billion. After several days of sideways movement, ADA has finally managed to break higher after a brief retest of $0.28 support as predicted in our Cardano price prediction yesterday. ADA/USD has set a new yearly high as it peaked at $0.367 hours ago.

Cardano Price Prediction: ADA is ready to move higher

ADA/USD has been trading in a symmetrical triangle pattern for the past days after several day bullish moves resulted in a new yearly high of $0.358 earlier this month. Since then, the price has been setting lower highs each time it finds support and reverses.

This week, ADA made both a higher low around $0.28 and a lower high around $0.33. Both of these turning points resulted in clear respect of the symmetrical triangle pattern. 

Today, the price of Cardano finally made its decision on where to go next. A clear breakout above the $0.33 resistance, as well as the descending trendline, was made.

Cardano price movement in the last 24 hours

The price of Cardano has increased by more than 14 percent over the past 24 hours. As mentioned before, a clear breakout was seen today. Cardano broke above all three previous highs of $0.33, $0.34, and $0.358. Therefore, we can expect further bullish momentum in the upcoming week.

Before the breakout, ADA retested the previous minor support area around $0.28. An obvious rejection was seen around this level, inviting traders to enter the market in preparation for another breakout attempt. This time it was successful.

Let’s consider that the previous bullish wave, seen from the 3rd of January to the 7th of January, resulted in a more than 100 percent gain. We could expect the market to continue much higher in the upcoming days in a similar way.

For the current move of Cardano, the next resistance could be seen around the psychologically important $0.4 level. Other than that, there are no clear resistances ahead, and ADA/USD could keep on moving higher over the weekend.

In case a rejection for further upside is seen later today. A good support level to watch for the ADA is the previous minor high of $0.33. The $0.33 level, together with the several week ascending trend line, will likely offer support for ADA once again.

The retest then could be used to enter a long position with the expectation that the price will continue moving higher next week. If this area does not hold Cardano in place, we will likely see a much larger mid-term reversal in the remainder of this month.

Cardano Price Prediction: conclusion – ADA shows strength after a breakout

Cardano has spent several days in an increasingly tighter range, which formed a symmetrical triangle pattern. Earlier today, the pattern broke with a strong bullish impulse to the upside. All three previous local swing highs could not provide enough resistance, resulting in a new yearly high being made for the ADA/USD.

Currently, the price should have a short-term correction, which would retest the previously mentioned resistance levels as support. Additionally, several week ascending trendline will likely offer additional support for ADA.

Right now, the best move would be to stay on the sidelines and wait for Cardano to make a confirmation pullback. This would allow for the best risk/reward setup in preparation for further upside over the upcoming 24 hours.

While waiting for the pullback, check our Cardano Price index report.
