Golden Suits, Doc Filming And Bad Crypto

In adult life, one way or another, no one escapes the suit. If you have but contempt for what it stands for, it might end up owning your day completely. It does not matter if it is above or beneath you. On the other hand, wearing one with the wrong outlook can be a severe… […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Hypertokenization

You’ve heard of hyberbitcoinization: how bitcoin could one day replace hyper-inflated fiat currencies. Now say hello to its lesser companion, hypertokenization: the idea that there should be a token for everything. Like salt and pepper, tokens are best enjoyed in moderation, but if the top stories from This Week in Bitcoin are an indicator, we […]

This Week in Bitcoin: A New Dawn

It’s too early to tell whether the crypto markets are out of the woods and inching back into the light. If a doctor was giving the prognosis, she would probably venture that we should remain “cautiously optimistic”. But if the top stories from this week in bitcoin are an indicator, there’s every reason to feel […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Time to Build

If there’s one thing a crypto recession’s good for, it’s rebuilding. It’s debatable whether we’re in a full-blown recession admittedly, but whatever you wanna call it, the charts ain’t looking too pretty. The upside to that is it’s a great time for looking elsewhere. With Easter imminent, it seems fitting that some of crypto’s biggest […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Courtroom Drama

Bitcoin was born on the internet but destined to end up in court. Where there’s money, there’s a trail of gold-diggers, scammers, and slighted plaintiffs, and as bitcoin has risen in value, so have the court cases. With lawsuits, threats of litigation, subpoenas, and regulators sending gavels slamming in courtrooms across the land, this week’s […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Everything Has a Price

In crypto, as in life, everything comes with a price. You want free tokens airdropped to your wallet? Prepare to answer a bunch of questions and follow a bunch of social channels for the pleasure. You want cheap bitcoin transactions? Then the price you must pay is forgoing the network for all but essential transactions. […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Hip Hop and You Don’t Stop

For the first time in forever – okay, a month – bitcoin is looking bullish again. Not wreck-a-china-shop bullish, but enough for us to focus on things other than price action. Things like hip-hoppers whose love affair with bitcoin is blossoming. And cult-like altcoin fanatics whose taste for the Kool-Aid is strengthening. Like a glutinous […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Japan Gets Goxxed and Iota Gets Into a Tangle

For the first time in forever, this week in bitcoin was strangely subdued. No major price movements, no regulatory crackdowns and no Tether collapse. Iota got into a bit of a pickle and then blamed everyone else, as Iota is apt to do, but that’s all. Everything was uneventfully ticking over, right up until Friday, […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Up, Down and Sideways

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. From the hubris and excess of the North American Bitcoin Conference to the gloominess of the crypto markets, it’s been a feel-o-coaster of a week. Fear, uncertainty and doubt were the overarching emotions amidst a turbulent seven days, but there was also space […]

This Week in Bitcoin: Kraken, Korea and a Whole Lotta Crazy

This week in bitcoin was all about Korea, although every week in bitcoin is all about Korea. Markets dropping? Blame Korea. Markets soaring? Credit Korea. Zero fee trading sends a pointless altcoin pumping? You bet it comes from Korea. While real news, fake news, and news whose legitimacy is a matter of dispute emanated from […]

Technical Analyst: There Is No Bubble at This Point

In a wide-ranging conversation with The Merkle, the co-founder of The Chart Guys explained why he doesn’t believe the current cryptocurrency market constitutes a bubble. “The great thing about this market is that when one coin, when Bitcoin cools off, the money is going to go somewhere else. And that’s because, in my opinion, there […]
