Ethereum News

In post In a blog post on Monday, the Ethereum Foundation announced that it will remove the terms “ETH 1.0” and “ETH 2.0” to replace the terms “execution layer” and “consensus layer.”

The “execution layer”, known as Ethereum 1.0, refers to the proof-of-work blockchain now known as Ethereum. The Beacon Chain, Proof-of-Stake, aims to adopt the consensus procedures after the two blockchains have been merged, hence the name “consensus layer”. Collectively, they are collectively known as “Ethereum”.

The network will soon host a “Merge” event, a future upgrade that will merge the existing Proof-of-Work chain with the Proof-of-Stake chain, which is expected to take place in June 2022.

The official Twitter account of the cryptocurrency Shiba Inu announced the Metaverse project, which will focus on the token’s ecosystem.

The price of the SHIB token has recovered almost 12% from the intraday low of $0.00001865.

News decentralized

Decentraland (MANA) could fall further as the market forms a negative pattern. The token faces a 28% drop to $1.46 if the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) fails to act as a reliable support.

MANA formed a descending triangle on the daily chart after the market fell to the lower border of the dominant technical pattern on January 21st.

The token could continue falling, below the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $2.18 on Jan. 22, serving as support for MANA.

The price is likely to float above the 200-day SMA at $1.92 and act as the next line of defense for MANA.

However, a drop below the above support could cause more trouble for the bulls as the token is likely to drop lower into the $1.46 region, coinciding with the Oct. 29 high.

Additional selling pressure could see the price continue its deep decline towards the 127.2% Fibonacci extension at $1.09.

If the buying pressure increases, the market will meet resistance at $2.18, then at the lower boundary of a corrective technical pattern at 2.64, which is near the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level and the 21-day -SMA lies.

News Cardano

Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson seems to be handsome satisfied with McDonald’s recent Crypto Twitter engagement.

The American fast food giant caught the attention of the Twitter community after tweeting, “What do you do with crypto Twitter account operators?”.

McDonald’s has come under the spotlight in the crypto market after El Salvador President Nayib Bukele changed his Twitter profile photo to one that shows him in a McDonald’s employee uniform.

News Fantom

If we plot the Fibonacci retracement lines for the FTM pullback from $1.77 to $2.41, we can see that $1.9 is the 78.6% retracement and also a confluence with the long-term support is.

Currently, the price has found support at $2.16 and is trying to scale higher. In the event that BTC trades sideways for the next day or two, the FTM could continue to rally and potentially break the $2.59 zone as long as it breaks above $2.32 and turns resistance into support.

The sharp drop from $3 to $1.77 pushed the RSI into oversold territory. However, in the last 12 hours, the RSI has been making a real attempt to break through the 50 level again. While the market is bouncing off the 38.2% retracement at $2.16, the RSI is at 52.1.

This is a signal that FTM could move higher. However, the $2.32 resistance is a fairly strong hurdle.

OBV has been gradually declining over the past week, but over the past three days, OBV has actually increased significantly. This shows that there is indeed strong demand behind the FTM decline. The 27.2% extension could be a short-term upside target.
