    Start-ups BlueFrontiers and Seasteading Institute, in partnership with French Polynesia, is creating floating islands with own government and cryptocurrency, supporting off-shore housing. A number of philanthropists, academics and investors are behind the $50 million Floating Island Project pilot program. The first independent floating island is expected to launch in the Pacific Ocean in 2022. It will operate outside of government regulations and will use Vayron cryptocurrency.

    Bitcoin Teeters at 7500 with Bearish Signal

    Bitcoin: Retail trader data shows 76.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.17 to 1. The percentage of traders net-long is now its highest since Apr 26 when Bitcoin traded near 9183.39. The number of traders net-long is 1.3% higher than yesterday and 1.1% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 10.0% lower than yesterday and 9.0% lower from last week.

    We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Bitcoin prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger Bitcoin-bearish contrarian trading bias.

    Cryptocurrency - Ethereum & Bitcoin Turning Near-term Bearish

    Ethereum spilled hard from the aforementioned head-and-shoulders pattern, but has since put in a sizable recovery. The rally, though, has a solid level of resistance in play, a familiar area from some time ago. Coupling the longer-term area on the daily, turning to the 4-hr there is price resistance in confluence with a trend-line running off the peak last month. ETH/USD is currently sneaking below a minor trend-line off the late-month low. Looking for a continuation lower as the week progresses.

    On the 4-hr, Bitcoin is posting a rising wedge within the context of a downtrend. This has BTC/USD positioned to make a move lower, but traders will want to see it roll down out of the pattern first, as there is still a chance it pops to the top-side. Potentially stopping downside momentum is a trend-line dating back to February, which may be apart of a maturing wedge in place since then. The pattern may want to further itself along towards the apex of the pattern, which, broadly speaking, would be a welcomed event as the pattern could down the line lead to a very strong move. For now, leaning bearish and will continue to monitor. Keep an eye on the daily trend-line on weakness – a hold may give us the larger pattern at some point, while a break could lead down towards 6400.

    Google Trends shows that the interest over time for "Bitcoin" has dropped to 10 in June this year from 100 in December 2017. The latest number is lesser than the interest shown during the corresponding period last year.Here is a wrap of the main news from the cryptocurrency and blockchain space during the past 24 hours.

    Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies-btcusd-d1-fx-choice-limited-2.png


    A new report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) says crypto assets may one day reduce demand for central bank money as they will eventually be more widely adopted and fulfill more functions of money in some regions or private e-commerce networks. This is the second time in a year that the global financial watchdog is warning central bankers not to underrate the potential of crypto assets in the monetary system. The study notes that the global financial crisis and bank bailouts have "renewed skepticism in some quarters" of the world and there's a possibility that digital assets can affect the traditional global monetary policies.

    Bitcoin has been trading above $6,000. Is it building support?

    Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies-btcusd-d1-fx-choice-limited.png


    Since declining sharply on Sunday, the digital currency has fluctuated largely between $6,600 and $6,900, according to the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).

    Over the last few hours, the cryptocurrency has moved slightly below that range, falling to as little as $6,455.92 by 19:15 UTC (3:15 p.m. EST), additional BPI figures show. At the time of report, the digital currency had recovered slightly, trading at $6,555.70.

    Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive officer of the investment banking giant Goldman Sachs, said he is not into cryptocurrencies and was at a loss to explain why they should be successful as an asset class. In an interview at the Economic Club of New York, Blankfein said, "But if it [cryptocurrency] did work, I will be able to explain in hindsight why it did."
