Bitcoin TA analysis

    · Crypto Fear and Greed Index update

    · Bitcoin Daily Time Frame

Over the past week, Bitcoin's price movement has been relatively stagnant, with minor fluctuations that have kept it within a narrow range.

This period of stability is somewhat unusual for the typically volatile cryptocurrency market. The price neither hit any significant highs nor experienced any drastic lows, maintaining a steady course throughout the week.

This kind of sideways movement often indicates a period of consolidation, where the market is seemingly deciding its next direction. Investors and traders are advised to keep a close eye on the market, as periods of low volatility often precede more significant price movements. As always, it's crucial to stay informed and make decisions based on careful analysis.

Ledger's New Key-Recovery Feature goes against principles of a cold wallet.

In the world of crypto, Ledger has stirred up a storm with its new key-recovery feature, Ledger Recover.

The company thought it was a brilliant idea, like inventing a parachute for skydivers who forget to pack one. But critics are less amused, arguing that this feature is as compatible with the concept of a hardware wallet as a fish is with a bicycle. 

Ledger Recover allows users to share their seed phrase (a sequence of words used to recover a lost wallet) with a set of trusted custodians - Ledger, Coincover, and EscrowTech. They will store users’ sharded and encrypted backups for a monthly fee.

Critics worry that this is like giving your house keys to a trio of strangers and hoping they don't throw a party in your absence.

Ledger insists that things are as secure as a bank vault, but the crypto community is skeptical, pointing out that Ledger's new offering contradicts its past statements about keeping private keys off the internet. It's like a vegan restaurant suddenly offering a steak special.

The situation has sparked a debate about trust, privacy, and the ethos of crypto. But Ledger CEO Pascal Gauthier remains optimistic, saying, "This is the way that the next hundreds of millions of people will actually be onboard to crypto." So, it seems Ledger is betting on the future, even if it means ruffling a few feathers in the present.
