Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for July 9, 2020:

Crypto Industry News:

Torus, a Singapore-based cryptographic key management platform, now allows users to send cryptocurrencies via social media platforms such as Twitter.

According to the latest Torus update, v1.7.2, users can now send tokens to any Twitter or GitHub account, even if the account has never used a Torus cryptographic wallet, the company said. Torus presented several transactions on Twitter, including 0.01 ETH transfers to major characters from the cryptocurrency space, such as co-founder Ethereum Vitalik Buterin, CEO Binance Changpeng Zhao and Elon Musk.

According to the announcement, the new update introduces six new login credentials for the Torus and DirectAuth wallet - a tool that allows users to manage application-specific private keys while storing them in a distributed Torus network. With the upgrade, users can now create a new Ethereum Blockchain wallet using any of their social identities, including Google, Facebook, Reddit, Twitch, Discord, AppleID, Github, LinkedIn, Twitter and Line.

The company has developed that logging to Torus using accounts such as Twitter is based on Auth0, a login service provider that integrates authentication and authorization for web, mobile and legacy applications. Auth0 acts as a proxy server that connects Torus accounts to a verifier such as Twitter or Apple.

After the pull-back towards the level of $233.88, the ETH/USD pair has made another higher high at the level of $248.20, just below the supply zone located between the levels of $248.86 - $252.03. Please notice, there is another Pin Bar candle made at the top of the recent rally as well, together with more serious candlestick pattern of Shooting Star, so traders should expect as some kind of pull-back towards the levels of $235.42 and $232.20 (will now act as a local technical support for the price). The momentum is still strong and positive and supports the short-term bullish outlook.
