Founder of Crypto Capital Venture Predicts Price Break Out for Cardano and Bitcoin, Meme Moguls To Dominate the Bull Market

Total Media

A top crypto analyst has predicted that Bitcoin and Cardano are close to experiencing a price breakout. The founder of Crypto Capital Venture explained that the move is already happening early this cycle. Meme Mogul is another crypto that has been predicted to benefit from this bull market. Let’s see how high these cryptos can go in the bull market. Dan Gambardello Has Predicted a Price Outbreak for Cardano ADA Dan Gambardello, market analyst and founder of Crypto Capital Venture has given his bullish predictions for Cardano. He explained that the Cardano coin is already in the early stages of its bull market. He highlighted the bullish momentum as a positive factor for ADA. He added that the price action displayed on the Cardano chart is “even more exciting”. He explained that the Cardano price has moved above the 20-week and 50-week moving averages. This would allow the price of ADA to increase significantly without entering the overbought level. His first price target for the ADA coin is around the $0.450 level. Based on his prediction, if the price of Cardano breaks above this resistance, then a rally to $0.750 could begin. However, he added that bulls must defend the ADA price from breaking below the 20-day support level. Bitcoin Still Has Massive Upside Potential In the same analysis, Gambardello shared his insight on the price of Bitcoin. He explained that there is currently too much bullishness going on in the crypto market. For a bullish scenario, he explained that the Bitcoin price chart must remain above its upper trendline. This excitement can be linked to the anticipation of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval. According to Gambardello, a sustained bullish period in the short term would hint at an actual bull market entering into 2024. For this to happen, the Bitcoin value must surge above $38,000. He added that only a break above $38,000 would guarantee a continuation of the bullish market. BTC made an attempt to reclaim this resistance in mid-November but has dropped below $37,000. Because of this, he warned that the market could become more choppy with sideways price action. Meme Moguls (MGLS) Set To Dominate the Bull Market A fast-growing crypto that has caught the attention of the crypto community ahead of the bull market is Meme Moguls (MGLS). The project has been highly rated by crypto experts because of its plethora of unique features and opportunities. Most notably is the first stock exchange platform built for the meme coin sector. This stock exchange platform was built specifically to cater to the needs of meme enthusiasts. Users will find the widest array of meme coins and meme-based assets. The platform has also infused a tiered leaderboard where traders who rank higher earn rewards. The platform will provide the latest meme trends and updates to help. The Meme Moguls ecosystem has also retained the community-driven nature of meme coins. Within the ecosystem, users will connect with other meme coin enthusiasts. They will connect, share information, and trade ideas, among other things. With the aim of revolutionizing the meme coin space, Meme Moguls has been highly rated by crypto experts. This can be seen in the growing interest in the project. Because of this, analysts have predicted up to a 3,500% price rise in the bull market. A great window of opportunity is still open as you can buy the MGLS token for only $0.0021 before this predicted rally. Visit Meme Moguls Contact Details Meme Moguls pr@mememoguls.com

Major Crypto Analyst Predicts Ripple to Spike 4,500%, Solana to Rise Above $100, Everlodge To 35x

Total Media

The Solana (SOL) trading volume exceeded $6 billion, and these stats can support an ongoing price rally. Crypto analyst Altcoin Sherpa also predicts that the crypto can experience a massive surge during 2024. Egrag Crypto, another notable analyst, projects that Ripple (XRP) could push toward the $6 to $7 range, assuming that it passes the crucial milestones of $3 and $5.80. Everlodge (ELDG) is also picking up a lot of attention, as it can disrupt the $280 trillion real estate sector. Today, we will jump into each one to see how far they can spike. Summary Solana can reach $104.49 based on Altcoin Sherpa analysis Ripple to surge to $27 in value by 2025 Everlodge to see a 35x upswing in value Solana (SOL) to See an Upswing to Over $100 Solana's (SOL) volume exceeded $6 billion, resulting in an increase in its appeal and usage. Analysts are also giving crypto attention, as crypto analyst Altcoin Sherpa recently noted how he is bullish on the future of Solana. They expect the cryptocurrency to correct and that a sub-$50 entry is ideal for the crypto. Based on the Solana price prediction by the analyst, it can hit three digits in 2024, and based on on-chart data, this signifies a climb to $104.49. Ripple (XRP) Projected to Spike 4,500% Ripple (XRP) also saw an influx in activity. According to a major crypto analyst known as Egrag Crypto, the price can surge as high as $7. The analyst also went further, envisioning how the crypto can explode to $27, based on the previous performance during the bull run of 2017. The 4,500% price increase can occur somewhere in the middle of 2025, according to the Ripple price prediction made by the analyst. As for 2024, the Ripple crypto can spike as high as $1.30. Everlodge (ELDG) to Enable Simple Access to the $280T Market Aside from Solana and Ripple, another crypto that is gaining a lot of attention is Everlodge. This is an upcoming platform that will democratize the $280 trillion real estate industry and will make it accessible to anyone globally. Traditionally, accessing these markets was difficult as properties would cost millions of dollars. But the approach Everlodge takes is unique, where it can essentially mint a $7,000,000 property in the form of an NFT on-chain. Then, it will fractionalize it across 70,000 pieces, all of which can be worth $100 each. Then, anyone can buy a single fraction or multiple fractions in different properties in order to diversify their holdings. As the property appreciates in value, the NFTs will climb in value in parallel to it. If it's a rental property, those holding it can get passive income. The native ELDG crypto is used for governance but can also be staked for passive income. The platform also features a Rewards Club where anyone can get access to free nightly stays and even re-sell them for additional capital gains. Now, the project is at stage seven of the presale, trading the token at $0.025. At launch, analysts project a 35x climb in its value. Visit Everlodge Contact Details Everlodge Team pr@everlodge.io

TSA Records Busiest Air Travel Day in US History

MarketJar

Airlines just survived their busiest travel season in US history, with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reporting a record-high screening of 2.9 million passengers on Sunday alone. 1 American Airlines announced an all-time high of approximately 6.5 million passengers during the Thanksgiving period, and its busiest day on Sunday, with over 6,100 flights. United Airlines also saw a record-breaking number of travelers, with 3.2 million flying between November 17 and November 23, leading up to Thanksgiving. The record travel day happened in spite of a cross-country storm that delayed over 900 flights at the busy Chicago O'Hare International Airport. In total, there were 7,939 delays within, into, or out of the US on Sunday. 2 Fortunately, only 55 flights were canceled, three of which were out of O’Hare. This busy travel day could become the new norm as passengers return to the skies en masse. “In 2023, we have already seen seven of the top 10 busiest travel days in TSA’s history,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. 3 Pekoske said the TSA would be collaborating closely with airline and airport partners leading up to the holiday season, with a goal to maintain wait time standards of under 10 minutes for TSA PreCheck® lanes and under 30 minutes for standard screening lanes. Last week, US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg mentioned efforts to enhance readiness for heightened holiday travel, including the recruitment of additional air traffic controllers and the establishment of new air routes along the East Coast. Travel last year rebounded to 2019 levels, but it was marred by weather and staffing challenges, resulting in dissatisfaction and stranded travelers during the holidays. This year, even more travelers means inevitably longer lineups at security checkpoints and longer wait times at major hubs, a problem that has been getting consistently worse as travel returns to pre-pandemic highs. Fortunately, AI security tech company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) has started implementing its HEXWAVE™ system in airports across North America to greatly improve security screening for both passengers and staff. A Fast, Contactless Screening Liberty Defense ’s HEXWAVE™ system uses a combination of AI, electromagnetic waves, and 3D imaging to effectively scan and identify potentially hazardous items, such as metal, 3D-printed plastic guns, powders, and liquids. The process is remarkably swift, requiring employees to pass through a contactless walkthrough portal without having to remove their keys or cell phones. Liberty Defense has also recently acquired licenses for millimeter wave-based High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) body scanners and shoe scanner technologies, expanding its technology portfolio. Liberty Defense has successfully delivered a HEXWAVE™ system to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), marking the completion of the contract under the TSA’s On-Person Screening Capability Program for screening Aviation Workers. "Over the past several months, we have been working closely with major US airports, including LAX, Denver, Oakland, and others on enhancing employee screening to reduce the potential of an insider threat,” said Bill Frain, Liberty CEO. “The focus of the program is to improve the detection for a broader range of threats while also improving the throughput for a practical and efficient process. A significant number of airports will be required to improve their screening process over the next several months. We look forward to supporting the initiative and making it a seamless transition.” Given the TSA's directive to implement screening measures for aviation workers, airports need technologies that offer a comprehensive range of threat detection capabilities to meet current screening requirements and those anticipated in the future. Liberty Defense ’s superior security detection solutions are thus of great help in this matter. On November XX, Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) became a recipient of the 2023 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today (AST) for its HEXWAVE™ solution. The 'ASTORS' Homeland Security Awards Program honors outstanding government and vendor solutions that offer significant value and intelligence in government, homeland security, and public safety sectors.

Ripple Partners with Onafariq, Solana News Suggests Everlodge Price Could Rally

Total Media

Africa is one of the most populous continents in the world, with around 50 countries and a population of 1.4 billion. But it lags behind in terms of financial inclusion which is why many Web3 entities such as Ripple, EMURGO’s Cardano, Solana, and Everlodge are trying to integrate crypto and fintech in Africa. Ripple is Accelerating Cross-Border Payments in Africa One of the most tricky things for African business ventures is sending payments, particularly across countries. That’s why Cardano recently had a Web3 summit about Africa, and Emurgo and Cardano set up the African Web3 social network/news site Nodo. Ripple also sees the importance and potential for Africa with crypto, and that’s no doubt behind their latest alliance. "Sub-Saharan Africa has proven to be a bright spot of crypto adoption, with consumers in countries like Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa employing digital assets for real-world, day-to-day purposes," said Ripple’s Aaron Sears. The partnership between Ripple and leading African payments fintech Onafriq aims to promote financial inclusion by enabling efficient remittances into Africa. Onafriq, formerly known as MFS Africa, will connect companies PayAngel, Pyypl and Zazi Transfer to its network that extends across 40 countries and 500 million mobile wallets. Ripple’s overarching aim is to revolutionize global payments through blockchain technology. Collaborating with Onafriq represents another step towards bringing the benefits of faster, cheaper payments to African communities. Solana’s Superteam is Connecting African Talent with Web3 From Solana’s perspective, as well as the many other blockchains like Ripple, as we have seen, Web3 promises greater financial inclusion, entrepreneurial opportunities, and youth empowerment. That’s why they’ve created the Solana Superteam. Through bounties, grants, jobs, events, and education, Superteam wants to empower African talents to learn, earn, and connect across Solana’s ecosystem. Solana Superteam makes it easier for people to access remote work and the gig economy - which is on the rise in Africa. Contributors earn crypto rewards matched to their skills while grants will fund entrepreneurial visions to build homegrown solutions on Solana. By joining the Solana Superteam chapter in Nigeria, African workers gain resources and exposure to help them thrive in Web3. Everlodge Helps Emerging Economies to Gain Access to Financial Investment Everlodge is another project that recognizes the importance of Web3 and financial inclusion. While Ripple focuses on payments and Solana on talent and building, Everlodge has property investment in its sights. Everlodge describes itself as “where Airbnb meets web3” and is building a network of vacation property rentals. These properties will be tokenized on the blockchain, fractionalized, and offered to investors for as little as $100. Background checks, credit checks, red tape, and geographic restrictions are no longer a problem, and neither is not having the capital to become a part of the rental market. With Everlodge, investors from around the world including Africa, will be able to add properties that generate rental income to their portfolios. The Everlodge token - ELDG - underlies the ecosystem, and grants access to special bonuses like vacation stays which can be enjoyed by holders, or rented out for extra income. ELDG is in presale at $0.025 and will launch at a 50% gain from the current price, upon which analysts are forecasting a possible 30x rally on the day. Given the bullish approach to Africa from Ripple, EMURGO, Solana, and more, this small-cap token is certainly one to watch. Visit Everlodge Contact Details Everlodge PR Team media@everlodge.io
