Cryptocurrency Ranking April 2019

36
April has been marked by accelerating bulls. The mood on digital currencies market is positive despite the moderate correction at the end of the month. Its impact was much stronger in the case of altcoins – Bitcoin stayed above $5200. What will be the next move of the cryptocurrency market and which coins were the biggest gainers? Let’s see – we are presenting Cryptocurrency Ranking April 2019.
In the February edition of Bithub’s Cryptocurrency Ranking we used for the first time a new method of selecting 30 coins. It is based on 30-day volume. Our new method allows us to examine the most „popular” projects in each month, which cannot be determined by looking at their marketcaps. What is more, the Ranking’s structure will not be pernament – it will gain the possibility of including different coins every month. For this purpose we use data from coinmarketcap. As every month, we present ROI of 30 digital curriencies exluding stablecoins.

Number of „Bitcoin” phrase searches surged at the beginning of April – it was because of rapid increase of its price. Then, the general interest fell and stayed around 50 points. As far as geography factors are concerned, „Bitcoin” phrase was the most popular in Nigeria for the third time in a row. The next positions were respectively occupied by China, Saint Helena Island, RPA and Ghana. We can see that the first five is the same as in March and February.

Number of Bitcoin ATMs

There were 4705 Bitcoin ATM’s all over the world at the end of April. It is 318 more than at the end of March. Bitcoin ATM industry is thriving because of rising popularity in South America, especially in Venezuela and Columbia. Citizens of countries that are in bad economic shape (usually developing countries) are looking for alternatives to FIAT money and often decide to use cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin ATMs are the easiest way for many people to buy them. This results in increased adoption of Bitcoin and makes it closer to the wider public.

Comments

Daniel Draganov:

During the last month (April) Bitcoin was fluctuating mostly above the 5K level. This led to a lot of altcoin rallies, although there weren’t as significant pumps as those in March. In my opinion this means that there are no new fresh money in the crypto market. We even saw new ATL for some of the coins. 4.2K was very important resistance level, and it’s inevitably to expect it to be tested as a support. If BTC holds that level I can conclude that the whole crypto market has bottomed and we are currently in the accumulation phase of the new market cycle. It’s possible to see another leg up (max 6k), but the most adequate scenario is to expect some relief move to see a healthy retrace to the 4k level.

This chart I put together was originally for myself. I had recently discovered trendlines really don’t work so much compared to parabolic lines. Every trendline breaks in either direction regardless of a bull/bear marketSupport and resistance never stays the same yet using parabolic lines seems to flow better when it comes to having a clue as to where BTC is going.

So just for fun I tried to come up with a prediction that flows along with the parabolic curve and here I present to you this idea. Take notice that the cup and handle (3) has been the signal that shows the end of the bear market and the beginnings of the bull market.

One last thing, take a look at the dotted lines that intersect the parabolic lines. Here I plotted 3 different colored trend lines and extended them from BTCs lowest low, intersecting the lowest low of each of the bear markets and then extended them upwards throughout each bull market. To my surprise these lines predicted the top of the market and the beginnings of a bear market. I don’t know about you, but I find that fascinating.
