SEC crypto clarity, Ethereum critiques, Overstock on crypto payments, Coinbase on Swarm's case, Shatner Solar bitcoin madlibs.

1. "Only going to say this once..."

An SEC representative has issued the clearest guidance on ICOs and cryptocurrency yet.

Ether was a security but is no longer, bitcoin is not a security, EOS is a super grey area and ICO scams are theoretically toast.

2. Unicorn or horse with party hat?

So more money and less costs is really good. And cryptocurrency is helping.
