OMG Network partnership with Tether

We’re excited to announce the launch of Tether on the OMG Network that supports thousands of transactions per second at a third of the cost of the same transaction on Ethereum. We’re delighted to address these fundamental issues and drive further growth and adoption of open financial services.
OMG Network technical picture
OMG is trading at $6.80 at the time of writing. It has slipped downwards from the monthly high of $6.96. All eyes are glued on breaking above the short term hurdle at $7.00. Bulls intend to build on this breakout for another well-orchestrated rally to $10.00 in the medium term. All indicators point towards the extension of the bullish action in the last seven days including the RSI has it settled in the overbought zone and the MACD as it moves higher in the positive region.
The immediate downside is protected by an accelerated trendline (broken line). Support is eyed at $6.00 in the event of a reversal. Further losses will seek refuge at $4.00, the 50 SMA, and 100 SMA in the 2-hour range. For now, the price is in the hands of the bulls, therefore, the path of least resistance is to the north.
