What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about China's vaccine scandal, Blockstream's buy-up, Clinton's keynote, Binance's wallet and Ethereum's price analysis.

1. Overarching moral imperatives on the blockchain

Some data is better off destroyed than made publicly available.

Vaccination rates, defective vaccine shipment data and disease statistics are not among them.

2. It can only mean one thing

We still don't know which one thing, but it's probably a singular goal.

Blockstream has $5 million of tech on the way.

3. That's just swell

Slick Willie's going to make some waves at Ripple's Swell conference.

That makes Ripple the first crypto company to score an ex-US president to hype up a conference.

4. Trust me

Binance has bought out Trust Wallet to just let it do its thing with a new logo.

Wouldn't it be more accurate to call it Trustless Wallet?

Ethereum price analysis: PSA edition

Mind the gap. Slippery when wet. Handle with care.

Price movements may cause irritation.
