What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about Binance coin votes, BitGrail moves, emulator cryptojacking, BIS on BTC and bitcoin's price analysis.

1. The votes are in

Now it's time to count them, and then to weigh them.

BNB prices are doing well on a little bit of extra functionality.

2. How to lose friends and alienate people

Losing $170 million of customer money is a good start.

Ticking off the local authorities while under investigation is a good finish.

3. Emulator? I hardly know 'er

Andy Android Emulator is emulating bad behaviour.

It's cryptojacking its users in quite a rude way.

4. The central bank of central banks isn't too keen on decentralisation

BIS has trashed bitcoin in a recent report.

Its criticisms are informative and accurate, but seem to broadly miss the point of decentralisation.

Bitcoin price analysis: Nautical edition

Steady as she goes, cap'n. Bitcoin is pushing through some rough seas, but seems to have a fairly firm hand on the tiller.
