QTUM and BAT are both trading higher on Monday by 8% and 19% respectively, as the top twenty cryptocurrencies struggle for gains.


The price of QTUM is up 8% on Monday as the coin sees a continued rally from last weeks partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). In my article last week I noted, 

The $4.10 level will be immediate resistance for QTUM going into the weekend.

QTUM Price Index

QTUM powered through the $4.10 resistance level and has settled at $4.50 after touching highs at $4.75. Monday has seen strong volume and the potential is there for further gains. Resistance levels for QTUM are at $5.00 and $7.50 for the weeks ahead.

QTUM has deployed the Bitcoin chain and provided an app environment similar to Ethereum’s so the project looked to take the best of both worlds from Bitcoin and Ethereum. The Singapore-based Qtum Foundation have called the partnership with AWS’ China division as “ground breaking”. The nod of approval from Amazon could open up further doors for QTUM and this could be a test case for them to prove their worth in smart contract development before a larger deployment through Amazon’s AWS divisions. 


One of the top performers this Monday is BAT, with the token showing strong gains at the end of last week. From a price of $0.200 on Thursday, BAT has powered higher to trade at $0.29 with a rise of 19% on Monday. I’d said in my article last week

A weekly close at this level ($0.215) or higher could see further gains ahead for BAT.

BAT Price Index

The $0.300 level was important for BAT and we should see that tested today. A move to the $0.400 level could happen this week. 

The BAT project is seeking to bring digital advertising to the blockchain and improve the advertising experience for users, publishers and advertisers. Based on the Ethereum blockchain, the project is a decentralized digital ad exchange which utilizes the Brave browser- an open-source, privacy-focused browser. 


The top twenty cryptocurrencies are struggling for gains on Monday, with NEM being only one of two coins in the green. NEM is up 2% and is holding above the 50-day moving average above the $0.100 level. NEM has resistance overhead at $0.110 and $0.120 and these are the next levels to watch for further gains.

NEM announced in recent weeks that they had teamed up with NOIZchain to create all NOIZ tokens. NOIZchain is a marketplace for online advertising information- transactional data between advertisers and publishers with consumer engagement data. There is a need for security around this data and they have chosen NEM to move forward on the blockchain.


The Worldwide Asset Exchange token (WAX) has been gaining steadily in the last week and is up 6% on the day suggesting a double bottom at the $0.06 level. WAX is now trading at $0.085 and may test the $0.09 and $0.10 levels soon.
