The Swiss crypto exchange Smart Valor lists the cryptocurrency PAXG and thus gives investors alternative access to gold.

The global health crisis and shaky financial movements have led people sorting to personal loans for bad credit to meet basic needs. And while global stock markets are still in the corona crisis, crypto companies are preparing to offer investors alternative ways to invest in gold.

PAX Gold – Paxos brings Gold to the Blockchain

One of these projects is the cryptocurrency PAX Gold ( PAXG ) attached to physical gold because from now PAXG can also be traded in the currency pair Swiss Franc (CHF) and British pound (GBP).

The new currency pairs were made available since March 19 after the digital trading platform Smart Valor the cryptocurrency in their quotation has taken.

The New York-based crypto companies Paxos had his tethered to gold cryptocurrency 2019 on the market brought. On Smart Valor, it can be traded in euros (EUR) and US dollars (USD) in addition to CHF and GBP. There are also currency pairs with the market-leading cryptocurrency Bitcoin ( BTC ) and the stable dollar tether ( USDT ) linked to the US dollar.

While Smart Valor speaks of being the first European crypto exchange to list the PAXG, a spokesman for Paxos confirmed to Cointelegraph that this will allow PAX gold to be traded in CHF and GBP for the first time. The cryptocurrency is also the first gold-linked asset on Smart Valor.

According to Paxos, the PAXG is also available on the Kraken, HitBTC, BitThumb and itBit crypto exchanges.

Tokenized gold as a lifeline?

Olga Feldmeier, Managing Director of Smart Valor, says the coronavirus crisis is a driving reason for the listing of PAX Gold. As the American central bank announced on March 15 that it would lower the key interest rate to 0%, savings assets are increasingly at risk of depreciation.

“With the outbreak of Corona, we could find ourselves in a new economic crisis that is taking the extracts from the Great Depression of 1930. In these times, investors need a real alternative to protect their savings. For this reason, we decided to offer tokenized gold on the SMART VALOR trading platform. ” — Olga Feldmeier |Smart Valor

Paxos emphasizes that gold was largely able to maintain its value despite the crisis since the precious metal is a so-called safe haven. The crypto company also indicates that it has approval from the New York financial services regulator.

As Cointelegraph reported, Paxos launched PAX Gold in September 2019 as the “first cryptocurrency that can be exchanged for physical gold”.

Another argument for the PAXG is the fact that the Ethereum-based crypto token is tradable around the clock. Because some big exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange closed its doors due to the corona threat, this led the crypto markets are increasingly popular because they can be reached at any time.

“When the stock exchanges are closed and a financial crisis threatens, the crypto markets suddenly become an unexpected source of liquidity for many. The cryptocurrency and tokenized asset markets are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and never take a break, even if all other markets do. ”   — Gunnar Jaerv|First Digital Trust,

After a very troubling week in all financial markets, bears also seem to have won on the Bitcoin (BTC) market. A sharp drop towards $ 3,800 crashes the price more than 50% in one day. And that movement makes one of the biggest and fastest crashes ever on the Bitcoin price. So before considering other investments in the Stocktrades list of dividend stocks, you may want to look at your investments on Bitcoins first and consider your options.

Strong support levels are easily broken and technical analyzes are therefore more difficult. The worldwide fear of the Coronavirus has a grip on all markets. Time to take a new look at the charts.

BITCOIN WORST CASE & BEST CASE SCENARIOS

Bitcoin analysis: filtering noise

The end of a very restless week is approaching, with the price currently hanging around $ 5,000. Again exactly on strong weekly support, to which we may attach little value.

Where we could normally expect a turnaround, we can now say carefully that it is quite possible that we will continue to go down.

One way to filter out as much noise as possible is to zoom out a lot further than usual. Hence I look at the higher timeframes. In order to get a longer-term picture, than all the noise that is currently seen on lower timeframes. Then it is somewhat possible to make a better analysis.

Bitcoin (BTC) weekly chart

To begin, we look at the weekly chart to see how the price is trying to hold out above the $ 5,000 zone. An important point for the coming days to keep.

Because this has often served as support and resistance in the past. However, the level may be a final straw from the bulls, who anxiously thumbs at good news regarding the Coronavirus and all other markets.

A piece of bullish news can ensure that the support is strong enough and that a reversal will actually take place. Which can last for a short time, but with some new power from bulls can push the course considerably.

A gloomy week ahead despite reversal?

However, it must be taken into account that it will also look gloomy in the coming week. With new drastic measures, which ensure that not only regular markets continue to crash, but Bitcoin will also respond to this. A new test to $ 3,600 is therefore not out of the question.

Support at $ 4,800, $ 4,200 and $ 3,600

On the daily chart of Bitcoin, we see that with a possible further decline, support is still at USD 4800 and USD 4200 before USD 3600 will become a reality.

Although a major flash crash to $ 2500 would not be out of the question. Should the price make the previous movements and again make a crash of 50%.

In a bullish scenario, an ascent to $ 5800 will already be very important and breaking it can give the market some peace of mind again. In addition, rapid recovery can be taken into account.

From the past, we see that solid panic on the market can also recover very quickly and bring prices to old levels within a few days. For now, it is especially very careful and then hope for a piece of good news before trading on your next cryptocurrency.
