What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Meet Line, xpringing into action, Consensus Singapore, Nasdaq-powered, Eth and Zcash gone wild.

1. Connect the dots

There are two kinds of people:

Those who have never even heard of Line, and those who obviously know what Line is and think it's weird that you don't.

2. Ripple to XRP: "Look busy"

Ripple has added Xpring (pronounced spring) to its repertoire.

It's all about diverxification.

3. It's probably just a coincidence

Freshly engorged from selling out an 8,500 person event at $2,000 to $3,000 a pop, CoinDesk has now announced Consensus: Singapore for later in the year, for a vaguely similar price.

You might get more bang for your buck though.

4. Pardon?

What does "Nasdaq-powered" even mean?

More than nothing, less than everything. More or less.
