Yesterday, we discussed that bitcoin price could face a solid resistance near $4,080 and $4,150 against the US Dollar . The BTC/USD pair recovered recently above the $3,920 resistance. There was even a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $4,199 high to $3,737 low. However, the upside move was capped by the key $4,080 and the 100 hourly .

Billionaire investor and venture capitalist Jim Breyer stated that despite a prolonged crypto “nuclear winter,” he still believes that the promise offered by the technology is too great for it to be permanently buried by short-term market movements. Speaking at the 2018 Fortune Global Tech Forum in Guangzhou, China, Breyer noted that while these are testing times for the crypto investment space, such periods take place in cycles and the current cycle will eventually come to an end. In a session at the event, Breyer — who has investments in Ethereum and VeChain, as well as crypto startup Circle — referred to the ongoing market situation as an inevitable part of a market process that takes place roughly once every decade. According to him, despite the turmoil associated with crypto assets, blockchain technology has achieved a critical mass of mainstream research and adoption, which makes a future crypto market rebound a near certainty at some point in the future.

It has been almost three weeks since the notable Bitcoin Cash hard fork, which has resulted in two rival chains, Bitcoin and Bitcoin SV . The recurrent “hash wars” are going back in forth, with the market still responding to the changes in networks’ relative hash rates. Yesterday, Bitcoin SV has managed to reduce the advantage to 27 blocks. Coupled with the overall market sentiment, that has decreased the BAB price to $137 levels. As for now, the chain is still slightly ahead in terms of hash power (53%) and network's nodes (70%) (Sources: https://cash.coin.dance, https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/bloc...). The mining profitability of Bitcoin SV is continuously volatile: as for now, it is 50% more profitable to mine on the original Bitcoin chain. Bitcoin mining profitability, however, has also plummeted, now being 5% lower that that of the Bitcoin chain (nevertheless, it is still a 45% advantage compared to the rival SV chain). Bitcoin miner composition remains less concentrated, with leading mining pools changing day by day. As for today, ViaBTC is the apparent leader, having mined 29.17% of recent blocks, followed by BTC .com with just below 19%. Bitcoin is continuing to attract occasional mining from Waterhole, Prohashing, DPool, Copernicus, P2Pool and okminer, the first four pools now consistently mining at least one block every day (Sources: https://cash.coin.dance/, https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/bloc...), contributing to the overall more healthy and diverse environment of the chain, stemming from more attractive mining profitability and more technologically reasonable adjustable blocksize cap solution implemented by the Bitcoin team. As for the SV chain, more than 40% of blocks are mined by a single Coingeek pool. Interestingly, BMGPool, previously cosistently contributing around 20% of the chain's blocks, has now apparently ceased its mining on the SV chain or at least severely scaled down its activities. These facts arguably continue to evidence that the Bitcoin chain is comparatively more sustainable. In that regard, the Osiris team remains on the BAB coin, despite recent performance leaves much to be desired.
