Bitcoin could reach the threshold of $ 14,000
CryptoKea analyst noted that the trend of the search term “Buy Bitcoin” has recently reached its highest level in the past 7 months – since June 2019. More specifically, the data has reached level 10 on the basis of long-term.
1 / Googling for “Buy Bitcoin” just reached a 7 months high (Score 9). The long-term upwards trend is undeniable. The last time the score reached a 10 was:
Nov ’13 (bull top),
May ’17 (price on parabolic run-ups),
Jun ’19 (medium-term top)
> Feb ’20 (price on parabolic run-up?) pic.twitter.com/tkdXIEvM3Q

Every time you reach this level of 10, the price of BTC has an important move. For example, in November 2013, it marked a long-term peak for the bull market that took the cryptocurrency above the $ 1,000 threshold. And in 2017, it marked the beginning of an exponential price surge, bringing BTC from under $ 3,000 to $ 20,000.
The current signal, likely marking the beginning of a parabola, takes the price of BTC to a level above the $ 14,000 threshold.

Vitalik points out the exact terminology used in the DeFi field
Decentralized financial applications (DeFi) experienced faster growth than any other sector in the cryptocurrency industry last year.
Recently, there was an article that drew a lot of community attention because it implied that “loans” could be made without paperwork or verification.
However, the term “lending”, which was used in conjunction with DeFi, was deemed incorrect by Vitalik, and this seems to have caught the attention of Ethereum co-founder.
I know I'm in the minority on this issue, but every time I see an article like https://t.co/2i7ywE7GqJ saying defi gives you the ability to “take out loans with no paperwork” I still cringe … pic.twitter.com/irIW8j3eAe
– vitalik.eth (@VitalikButerin) January 30, 2020
“Every time I see an article … saying that defi gives you the ability to” borrow money without paperwork, “I'm quite scared.”
Buterin went on to explain that the reason common loans have paperwork is to verify that the borrower can repay the money. This raises questions to DeFi about how to guarantee repayment if someone can simply borrow without “paperwork.”
“Here money never leaves your hands, it just turns into a leveraged position.”
The exact term, as Vitalik points out is where the debt is pledged or CDP.

The upgrade is part of its relentless effort to combat ASIC, thus ensuring decentralized mining by empowering CPU miners. The latest network upgrade also saw the introduction of RPC-Pay, an innovative way to encourage server operators to earn Monero as an alternative to advertising revenue.
RPC-Pay introduced in latest #Monero version is really cool!
Rough #Bitcoin equivalent: think of subsidizing Electrum server by mining few seconds and sending it your shares to use it.

Ontology is making an attempt to break out of the descending resistance. Ontology prices have been falling since October 27, 2019, but Crypto analyst Caj believes that this decline is coming to an end. He tweeted about the ONT chart and noted that it could soon break out of the current descending resistance.
The main support area is found at 710 satoshi. Although it held up most of the time, the price dropped below this level twice before the breakout.

The weekly chart shows prices that have made a double bottom between September and January, combined with a bullish divergence in the weekly RSI. This is a very strong sign that often leads to a reversal pattern.
If this happens, the nearest resistance areas will be found at 1,100 and 1,500 satoshi. A break above these thresholds will confirm that ONT is in a bull market.
