Tom Lee: According to TA, Bitcoin enters the bull market
Lee tweeted that Bitcoin exceeded the 200-day moving average on January 27, which should be considered a “positive milestone” and reinforces his belief that 2020 should be a “big year” for Bitcoin. Lee explained that whenever Bitcoin’s price exceeds the 200-day moving average, the win-rate (within the next six months) rises to 80%, which means Bitcoin “re-enters” the bull market.

Google deleted their apk from Google Play without warning
Last week, the Google Play store deleted without warning an app that used a cryptocurrency reward system, which at that time was the top rated bitcoin reward app with nearly 1.4 million users.
