What's happening in crypto?

Read about Byzantine generals, Bitmain's IPO, how to get listed on Binance, the crypto events round-up and Litecoin's price analysis.

1. More generals than specifics

Cryptocurrency owes a lot to the old Byzantine Generals problem.

Extended metaphors to explain fault tolerance and different consensus mechanisms do too.

2. Investing in shovels during whatever the opposite of a gold rush is

It's hard to look at today's crypto prices and think "gold rush."

But shovels may have some staying power.

3. What not to do and what not to not do

Binance CEO CZ, or Changpeng Zhao for short, has enlightened project owners on the listing process.

It's an intriguing look at how it works.

Cryptocurrency events round-up: Mixed nuts

Check out the good, the bad and the ugly of next week's crypto events.

Litecoin price analysis: Nut allergy

Litecoin prices are experiencing a rash that won't go away, interspersed with bouts of anaphylactic shock.
