■ BCH News:
First reported by @IamNomad on Twitter, it appears that a single
BCH wallet may be responsible for 50% of all BCH transactions
over the past month. Theories as to the rationale for this include
that someone is trying to artificially inflate the amount of BCH
transactions on the blockchain or that these transactions are a test
for an app or game that will be using BCH to support in-app or in-
game purchases.
Trading History YTD:
After drifting sideways to negative for the first two months of 2019, the
price of BCH stabilized and then traded positively in March and the
first half of April.
However, BCH has lost some ground in April, trading negatively
following hitting a recent high of US$320.69 on April 3
rd
, 2019.
■ Current Environment:
Positive momentum in BCH resumed last week, as the price of BCH
trended positive for most of the week.
This positive price momentum occurred when the broader
cryptocurrency markets were trending negatively, resulting in BCH
gaining ground against other major cryptocurrencies in the first half of
the week last week.
Volumes were higher week-over-week, averaging 6.7 million coins
per day compared to the previous week’s volumes of 4.5 million coins
per day.
