Crypto Industry News:
Bitmain, a Chinese cryptocurrency mining hardware maker, was forced to cease operations in China from October 11 under a ban imposed by local authorities.
In addition to banning crypto operations in China altogether, the company has decided to stop shipping cryptocurrency mining platforms in response to the government's carbon neutrality policy.
While the company has yet to disclose its aid plan to existing customers in China, Bitmain will continue to provide Antminer cryptocurrency mining platforms to users around the world, including Taiwan and Hong Kong.
To counteract a temporary slowdown in the Chinese market, Bitmain increased its production capacity for Antbox mobile mining containers. In November, the company will host the World Digital Mining Summit 2021 in Dubai, where it will discuss green energy opportunities "primarily from clean energy projects in Yunnan, Xinjiang," and other Chinese provinces.
Despite the recent ban on crypto activities in China, Bitcoin mining operations are on the way to full recovery as Chinese miners and investors relocate to friendly regions.
Technical Market Outlook:
The ETH/USD had pulled-back towards the technical support located at the level of $3,385 and bounced right back up during the weekend. There is a clear Bullish Engulfing pattern at the end of the pull-back and the bulls are back in control of the market. The next target is located at $3,677 and then at $3,830. The momentum is back into the positive zone, but is not that strong yet, so a more complex and time-consuming correction in a potential wave 4 is still possible.
Weekly Pivot Points:
WR3 - $4,097
WR2 - $3,885
WR1 - $3,704
Weekly Pivot - $3,473
WS1 - $3,298
WS2 - $3,083
WS3 - $2,876
Ethereum have started the next wave up and violated the long-term target at the level of $3,550. The next long-term target for ETH is seen at the level of $4,394. Nevertheless, in order to continue the long-term up trend, the price can not close below the technical support at the level of $2,906. The level of $1,728 (61% Fibonacci retracement of the last big impulsive wave up) is still the key long-term technical support for bulls.
