What's happening in crypto?

Securities on Binance, Gox drama continued, crypto congress, cryptojacking in pole position, ultimate mining guide part 3, XRP price analysis.

1. ETO Brutus?

Right after Coinbase gets the green light for securities listings, in comes Binance.

The goal is an exchange that can handle ETOs, or equity token offerings.

2. Never a dull moment

France won an extradition tug of war between Russia and the USA for a key Mt Gox suspect whose former exchange was raided then came back under the rumoured ownership of a Russian militiaman reportedly involved in the downing of Malaysia Flight 17 over Ukraine and is now locking out user withdrawals after bitcoin price anomalies.

As you do.

3. How inspirational

The world is on the cusp of a new age where anything can be digitised to flow at the speed of data, creating a glittering future of economic inclusion and prosperity for all. Or thereabouts.

In today's congressional hearing the general sentiment was that it all sounds very complicated.

4. Ahead by a hair - a full head of hair

It's quite the shift.

Crytojacking is not the clear number one type of malware, largely due to ransomware's decline in the same time.

5. Part 3: Show me the money

The ultimate crypto mining guide, part three.

XRP price analysis: Shake it edition

XRP is shaking off a bearish funk and boogieing its way towards new break points.
