Important Announcement From Gate.io
Gate.io has launched more than 1,000 trading pairs, making it the world's largest exchange for crypto coins. It was recently ranked #1 for Altcoins by Coin Clarity and was named “Altcoin Hunter's Dream”.
However, we have noticed that most of the new and non-mainstream coin markets have limited liquidity, poor market depth, and other problems.
To further enhance the user experience, Gate.io has officially launched the centralized Automated Market Maker (AMM) service: allowing most of the new and non-mainstream coin markets to gain the same liquidity as Uniswap, and allowing users to enjoy a low-cost and high-quality user experience on a centralized platform.

The Crypto market has continued to rise since July 21. Price of Bitcoin reached $40,000 again, which was the third time breaking $40,000 since the crashdown of May 19. Spot price of Ethereum is now stable at over $2,000, and aiming for $2,500. From July 21 to July.28, the price of Bitcoin showed bullish for 8 straight days, while the price of Ethereum showed bullish for 9 straight days.

From a technical perspective, the width of the Bitcoin price Bollinger Bands has increased significantly after the 24th, and the spot price has frequently continued to move up the boundary, showing a strong growth trend. The 7-day moving average and 14-day moving average of Bitcoin spot prices have both risen. At the same time, the degree of divergence between the short-term moving average and the long-term moving average has gradually increased. Although the Bitcoin price did not increase on the 29th and 30th, it entered the adjustment stage, but the technical indicators showed that the momentum of Bitcoin price growth was still sufficient. The spot price of Ethereum is still moving upward in the Bollinger Bands. Compared with Bitcoin, Ethereum's price volatility is slightly weaker, and the price keeps increasing in a steady state. In view of the recent surge in the correlation between the prices of Ethereum and Bitcoin, the price of Ethereum may move sideways and sideways with the price of Bitcoin.
