Although prices have fallen across the ecosystem, bear markets at least offer attractive opportunities for long-term investors. To take advantage of this opportunity, venture capital firm Seven Seven Six, co-founder of Reddit, aims to raise $177.6 million for a crypto investment fund. Along the same lines, former executives from Galaxy Digital and Genesis are looking to raise $500 million.

Bitcoin turned lower from the downtrend line on August 30th but the small positive is that the bulls bought the dip near $19,500. The bulls are once again trying to push the price above the downtrend line on August 31st.

If they succeed, the BTC/USDT pair could rise to the 20-day exponential moving average ($21,325), which is an important level to watch. If the price drops from this level, the bears will attempt to pull the pair to the strong support area from $18,910 to $18,626. A breakout and a close below this area could open the doors for a retest of the important support at $17,622.

Conversely, if the bulls push the price above the 20-day moving average, the pair could rise to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) ($22,333). If the bulls cross this hurdle, the pair could gain momentum and push towards the upper resistance at $25211. Bulls must overcome this barrier to indicate that the bottom may be in place.

Ether (ETH) surged from $1,422 on August 29 and rose again above the neckline of the head and shoulders pattern. This suggests that the crash on August 26 may have been a bear trap.

Bulls are trying to push the price above the moving averages. If they succeed, ETH/USDT could rise to the general resistance at $1,700. This is an important level to watch because a breakout and a close above it could open the door to a potential rally to $2000.

This bullish view will be invalidated if the price drops from the upper resistance level and breaks below $1,422. Such a move would suggest that the recovery may be over. The pair could then fall to $1,280 and later to $1,050.

BNB rebounded from the strong support at $275 on August 29, indicating that the bulls are aggressively defending this level.

The bulls attempted to push the price above the 20-day moving average ($292) on August 30 and 31, but the bears held out. If the price breaks and closes below the $275 support, the BNB/USDT pair will complete a bearish head and shoulders pattern. That could start down to $240 and later to the pattern target at $212.

Conversely, if the price bounces below $275 and breaks above the 20-day moving average, the pair could rise to $308. A breakout and a close above this resistance could clear the way for a rally to $338.

Buyers have been defending the $0.32 level for the past three days but failed to make a strong recovery. This indicates a lack of demand for Ripple (XRP) at higher levels.

The 20-day sloping Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) are in negative territory, indicating that the bears have a slight advantage. If the price breaks below the current level or the 20-day moving average and breaks below $0.32, the XRP/USDT pair may slide to the vital support level at $0.30.
