📈 Technically Speaking…
2 important levels on our radar:
Significant resistance at the $50k level.
Tested support just above $44k level.
Setting up, with a reasonable amount of probability, for a sideways market. Particularly when considering the Moving Averages (7, 30 and 100).
$40k is a key psychological level and also confluent with the 100 Day MA. Losing this will impact our bullish bias. At the moment, we are still holding the $44k level; it maintains the strength of the move up.
Significant long breakout opportunity above $50k.
$3k and $4k. Bearish below $3k and bullish above $4k.
Now let’s consider the Moving Averages. We see a desperate attempt to maintain the 30 Day MA. In terms of MA, ETH looks more bullish.
After an insane run, the price is floating around the 0.382 level.
Very aggressive(risky) buy opportunity; if we hold the 0.382 level we have had a healthy retrace (particularly considering the recent technical glitch).
The alternative would be a very strong sign of weakness and likely lead to a bearish/sideways market for a while.
AVAX was one of the chart requests on our recent Discord summit. It’s showing a lot of strength. Lots of cool projects are building there and decent sentiment too.
It may look like this asset has already pumped and it’s ‘too late’. Well trends over-extend in crypto. We’ve seen this happen with SOL and countless other coins.
If BTC and ETH show strength, this could be an interesting opportunity; as always, with appropriate risk management measures.

Everywhere you look, blockchain technology seems to be changing the game. From MLB teams launching Topps NFTs to football teams launching tokens offering fans governance participation, digital technology is revolutionizing our world. In a push to cut out the middleman and give power back to the artists, the blockchain bandwagon makes room for one more as the music industry climbs aboard. Close your eyes and open your ears, Audius is trying to turn up the volume to 11.
Audius was founded in 2018 as a decentralized music streaming service with a social media component. It runs on the Ethereum and Solana blockchains to produce immutable, timestamped records for those who patronize its generative services.
On August 17th, TikTok announced its partnership with Audius to manage its internal audio library. Currently, there are more than 100,000 artists with music on Audius. Earlier this month, Audius also integrated Solana NFTs in order to allow its users to feature collectibles from the Solana Library.
Huge names in the music industry like Katy Perry, Nas, Steve Aoki and Jason Derulo recently poured $5 million into funding for the blockchain streaming platform in a move led by Blockchange Ventures, an early-stage blockchain venture fund.
The music industry has been plagued for years by a status quo of middlemen with their hands in the pockets of aspiring musicians. Managers, record companies, publishers, streaming services…. the list goes on. Not to mention the power that centralized media sources hold in reserve to shut down all access to artists’ intellectual property on a whim. It looks like the cryptoverse is about to drop the mic on the music industry.

🪄 Do You Believe In Magic?
If you have been hanging around in crypto for even a short time, you have probably noticed that everyone loves a good meme. Recently a meme-inspired DeFi project, Abracadabra.Money has emerged and it is getting a lot of attention.
What is Abracadabra Money?
Abracadabra is a magic protocol to make your cryptowork for you.
With Abracadabra you can use interest-bearing tokens (ibTKNs) as collateral to borrow their stablecoin ‘Magic Internet Money’ or ‘MIM’.
MIM can be traded to other stablecoins such as USDC, USDT, DAI.
Because your collateral is an interest-bearing token, it is growing in value, therefore reducing, but not eliminating, the possibility of liquidation.
There is a second token in the Abracadabra protocol called SPELL. The purpose of SPELL is to stake it and in exchange, you are given sSPELL.
This third token, sSPELL, gives the holders voting rights and a share of feesgenerated by the protocol.
Fees come from interest paid on the borrowed Magic Internet Money (MIM).
Allowing users to collateralise (borrow against) interest-bearing tokens is a very innovative idea, but that is not the only thing about this project that has everyone in a buzz. The protocol also has a cross-chain bridge, allowing users to swap their MIM on Ethereum, Avax, Fantom, and BSC.
If you are thinking about conjuring up some SPELL or performing one of the spell rituals to get your very own magic internet money, you may find solace knowing that the wizards behind Abracadabra hope their recipe for a stablecoin will evade the coming stablecoin regulations in the US.
