Government Blockchain Week Story

Avatar

Published

on

From September 27- October 1 of 2021, the Government Blockchain Association, GBA, will be bringing together blockchain enthusiasts from around the globe for their big event, Government Blockchain Week in Washington DC.

In spite of the ravaging of COVID-19, the GBA is planning to hold this event live in many of the iconic buildings of the Capital City. The September week will be the third time that this event has been moved farther into the future in hopes that when Government Blockchain Week finally happens, attendees will have no fears of contracting the virus.

The week will begin with a Blockchain Foundations class on Monday, along Embassy Row at the British Embassy’s Rotunda building. At the same time, Blockchain Use for State and Local Governance will be held at the Attorney General’s Office downtown.

On Tuesday, a DC government agency building will host the Blockchain, Innovation & Economic Growth with Pitch Competition. Competitors from around the globe will be pitching their blockchain solutions to a panel of investors and government policymakers. Prize money, as well as the chance to advance to the World Business Angels Investment Forum world competition is at stake. The winners will be chosen at the end of the day.

While this is going on, the Department of International Trade UK at the British Embassy will host Blockchain, International Trade and International Aid.

On Tuesday evening, attendees can purchase tickets for Blockchain Ambassadors, held at the historic Whittemore House, for an evening to network under the stars. This cocktail party, the first of 3 Evening Receptions, will feature strolling musicians, parlor talks in the grand rooms of the mansion, catering fit for a President, networking in Eleanor Roosevelt’s library, finishing off with brandy and cigars out on the patio as the evening comes to a close.

Wednesday will be a day full of cryptocurrency and cybersecurity. Beginning with the Legal, Law Enforcement and Cybersecurity Forum happening in tandem with the Money, Banking and Cryptocurrency Forum. Guests will agonize over which one to attend, because they will miss the other.

In the late afternoon, selected guests will be invited to the FinTech Round Table, hosted by the Embassy of Bahrain. This invitation only meeting of the minds will allow banking regulators and finance policymakers a chance to meet and discuss the changes that are happening in their industry.

On Wednesday evening, on the rooftop of the International SPY Museum, the GBA will host CryptoNite, and electric, black tie event filled with intrigue and drama. Words cannot describe what CryptoNite is. You just have to be there. This is the second of the 3 Evening Receptions.

On Thursday and Friday, the big guns of the Speakers’ list will show up at the Congressional Auditorium of the US Capitol where GBA will host their 2-day flagship event, The Future of Money, Governance, & The Law. During these two days, global leaders in blockchain, finance, cryptocurrency, government, and law enforcement will discuss where and how blockchain will dramatically change their industry. During the 2 days at the Capitol, GBA will host their

Annual Achievement Awards,

and a Digital Art Show.

On Thursday night, on the rooftop of Capital View 400, the guests of Government Blockchain Week can purchase tickets to attend the

Inventors and Pioneers Evening Reception.

For centuries, inventors and pioneers have shaped and impacted the whole of humankind. On this night, we celebrate the inventors and pioneers of the 21st Century who will impact the decade and the century to come. This final Evening Reception will be a great celebration of a monumental week, overlooking the dome of the Capitol under a sky full of stars.

Government Blockchain Week, September 27 through October 1, 2021, will be packed with forums, presentations, competition, awards, art, parties, and most of all, powerful and impactful networking. Anyone who hopes to make a stand in blockchain technology will benefit by attending this monumental event.

TA: Bitcoin Turns Attractive Above $50K, Why BTC Extend Its Rally

Avatar

Published

on

Bitcoin price gained bullish momentum above the $50,000 resistance against the US Dollar. BTC traded towards $52,000 and it remains supported for more upsides.

  • Bitcoin started a fresh increase above the $50,000 and $50,500 resistance levels.
  • The price is now trading well above $50,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key rising channel forming with support at $50,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could correct a few points, but the bulls are likely to protect $50,000 and $49,500.

Bitcoin Price Starts Fresh Increase

After a strong close above the $48,000 level, bitcoin started a fresh increase. BTC was able to clear the key $50,000 and $50,500 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

There was also a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $48,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair extended its rise above the $51,000 level and traded to a new weekly high at $51,853.

It is now correcting lower, but it is trading well above $50,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An initial support is near the $50,750 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $47,141 swing low to $51,853 high.

There is also a key rising channel forming with support at $50,500 on the same chart. The next major support is near the $50,000 level. Any more losses may possibly lead the price towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $47,141 swing low to $51,853 high near $49,500. The main support is now forming near the $48,800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More Upsides in BTC?

If bitcoin stays above $50,500 and $49,500, it could start a fresh increase. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $51,500 level. The first major resistance is near the $52,000 level.

A successful close above the $52,000 resistance level could open the doors for a larger increase in the coming sessions. The next major resistance could be $53,200, followed by $54,500.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is now gaining momentum in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now well above the 50 level.

Major Support Levels – $50,500, followed by $50,000.

Major Resistance Levels – $51,500, $52,000 and $53,200.
