Bitcoin

Bitcoin extended decline and traded below $29,000 against the US Dollar. BTC must stay above the $28,500 level to avoid a sharp decline in the near term.

  • Bitcoin started a fresh decline from the $30,500 resistance zone.
  • The price is now trading below the $30,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support near $29,600 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could extend decline if there is a clear move below the $28,500 support zone.

Bitcoin Price Is Showing Bearish Signs

Bitcoin price failed to clear the $30,500 resistance zone and started a fresh increase. There was a clear move below the $29,500 and $29,000 support levels.

Besides, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support near $29,600 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is now trading below $30,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It tested the $28,500 support zone.

A low is formed near $28,589 and the price is now consolidating losses. An immediate resistance is near the $29,100 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $30,742 swing high to $28,589 low.

The next major resistance is near the $29,650 level. It is near the 50 Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $30,742 swing high to $28,589 low. A clear move above the $29,500 and $29,650 resistance levels might start a fresh increase in the near term. The next key resistance could be near the $30,500 level, above which the price might rise towards $31,200.

Axie Infinity’s Creator Sky Mavis Announced Plans To Reopen Ronin Bridge

CoinFLEX Exchange Pauses Withdrawal Citing Extreme Market Conditions
  • Sky Mavis reported that the re-designed Ronin Bridge had passed an audit.
  • In April, the business received $150 million in further capital funding.

Axie Infinity’s creator, Sky Mavis, has announced plans to reopen the Ronin Bridge, which was hacked for $552 million in March. According to the most recent community update, the reopening of the Ronin Bridge, used by users to move assets between the Ronin chain and the Ethereum network, is scheduled for June 28th.

Certik Audit With Minor Changes Completed

According to the team, all node operators’ software will need to be updated as well since a hard fork is necessary for the bridge’s relaunch. In contrast, node operators who are not validators on the network will need to follow particular instructions provided by the developers to implement the system.

An estimated $552 million in Ethereum and USDC (at the time of the attack) was drained from the protocol by the Ronin bridge vulnerability at the end of March and was one of the biggest in the crypto industry.

Five of the network’s nine validator nodes, including four of Sky Mavis’ own validators, were apparently compromised by the attacker, who used stolen private keys to sign transactions. With minimal changes from Certik, Sky Mavis reported earlier this week that the re-designed Ronin Bridge had passed an audit.

Certik’s suggestions are being implemented, and the validator Governance Smart Contract will be deployed soon, Ronin stated on Tuesday. Sky Mavis has promised to either retrieve or repay the user monies that were taken as a result of the event. In April, the business received $150 million in further capital. Animoca Brands, Andreessen Horowitz, Paradigm, and others joined Binance in the fundraising effort.
