Andrew Munro 11 July 2018 NEWS

What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about market drops, space between Ripple and XRP, tax clarity for Australia, the Binance CEO's gentle rebuttal and mobility future.



1. Drops of rain evaporating into rising Steem

The markets are broken again.

They're very broken in the case of Steem and Stratis, but broken in their favour.

2. Ripple just needs some space right now

A grassroots effort from the XRP community has arrived at just the right time to bolster the argument that XRP is not a security and is only tangentially affiliated with Ripple.

Ripple may or may not be standing behind these impromptu grassroots efforts with a baseball bat.

3. How do you do crypto?

Why ask? No reason really.

It's just that the ATO is wondering.

4. Binance cryptocurrency BILLIONAIRE rips Ethereum boss

The Binance CEO just appeared in a cloud of smoke in front of Vitalik Buterin and shredded all of I Am The God of Hellfire on a flaming guitar while staring him dead in the eyes.

Either that, or he made some nice and interesting comments about the nature of centralisation in today's cryptocurrency ecosystem. Click here to find out which it was.

5. What do you call it when a transport-related smart contract oracle depends on flawed data?

The blind leading the mobility impaired.

There's a cool new partnership in mobility town.
