What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about Bittrex USD pairs, EOS scanning, dermatology blockchain, pro-crypto calls in China and Litecoin's price analysis.

1. Bittrex now technically a forex platform

Bittrex has introduced USD deposits and offered up the first direct to fiat link for many of its 200+ coins.

2. Through a scanner dorkily

Someone's been browsing the EOS GitHub repository for vulnerabilities.

They found a hint and are now casting around for weak points.

3. Having some skin in the game

Dermatology on the blockchain. It's more likely and perhaps not as crazy as you'd think.

Note that not being crazy is one of the lowest possible bars for any project to aspire to.

4. What do we want? Crypto! When do we want it? After several confirmations!

China is seeing some renewed calls for crypto.

At the end of the day, you can't really stop it. But it's also hard to rush it.

Litecoin price analysis: Funny names edition

Litecoin is showing an apparent pennant formation.

What kind of a name is Litecoin anyway? Is it like a diet bitcoin or something? Yeah, actually that's probably it.
