Andrew Munro 18 May 2018 NEWS

What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Crypto to AI, crypto market drop, enterprise on EOS, Genesis BitLicense and the weekly market round-up.



1. Cash, card and AI machine learning cycles accepted

Find a shop that accepts GNT, or similar, and you can literally use computing power as a currency.

Along with sensible business moves from Bitmain, cryptocurrency stands to drive AI development.

2. Why? Why not

Why are crypto prices dropping?

Well, why wouldn't they?

3. Email on the blockchain? Email on EOS

Enterprise email service Zimbra X has made the move to blockchain.

Specifically, the EOS chain, meaning the fledgling system has landed itself a whale.

4. Genesis bites the big apple of knowledge

Genesis has acquired the famously rigorous New York BitLicense.

That it's taken this long is an old testament to its rigours.

Weekly market round-up: Viscous red liquid edition

The cryptocurrency markets are taking a bath.
