Technical analysis of BTC/USD for 15/08/2019:

Crypto Industry News:

Samsung's South Korean technology conglomerate has quietly added Bitcoin support to its decentralized app store, Blockchain Keystore.

According to updated information on the Samsung Developers site, Keystore now supports Bitcoin, as well as Klaytn, a cryptocurrency released by Korean Internet giant Cocoa.

As noted on the site, Samsung's Blockchain Keystore is supported by six of its devices - Galaxy S10e, S10, S10 +, S10 5G, Note10 and Note10 + - and in six jurisdictions: Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United States and Great Britain.

Keystore was first released in July this year as part of the Blockchain package and the Samsung Decentralized Application (DApp) Software Development Kit (SDK) that provides account management as well as backup, payment and digital signature. It is noteworthy that at first Keystore only supported Ethereum Blockchain.

Earlier this month, Samsung expanded the SDK with two new services - DApp with digital analytics called "Jupiter" and a peer-to-peer wallet based on the QR code called "Mars" and integrated them with Galaxy S10 and newer versions of Samsung smartphones.

In parallel to Samsung, the Taiwanese consumer electronics giant HTC also introduced a smartphone with Blockchain technology, called "Exodus", which was introduced in autumn 2018.

Trading Recommendations:

The best strategy in the current market conditions is to trade with the larger timeframe trend, which is still up. All the shorter timeframe moves are being treated as a correction inside of the uptrend. The larger degree WXY correction might have been completed and the market might be ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree.
