What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Another Satoshi Nakamoto, the new EOS constitution, DIY smart contracts, $50k bitcoin prediction and Ripple woes.

1. The real Satoshi Nakamoto revealed to be a rambling semi-coherent PR stunt

Pack it in. Bitcoin was just a PR stunt for a set of tell-all memoirs that only tell what's already public domain.

Either that, or this person's lying.

2. New EOS constitution revealed to be a rambling semi-coherent PR stunt

That's why you don't send humans to do a robot's job.

3. "You have reached dial-a-derivative"

"Press 1 for a complete list of blockchain asset derivatives available, press 2 to make your own or press 3 to speak to one of our friendly customer service engineers."

Tokenise the world, put the world on a blockchain then create a system for easily creating derivatives of those assets.

4. A man walks into a bar

"What'll it be, well-known bitcoin bull?" the bartender asks.

"$50,000 bitcoin by 2018, mark my words," the man replies. "All the institutional money wants it."

"So the usual then," the bartender says. He glances at institutional money, who's quickly sidling to the exit.

5. Ripple searching for someone who loves it for more than its body

Ripple is searching for a heart, but keeps finding shallow sleazes who just want to pump and dump it.

Undeterred, it's spending millions in search of those who will treat it right.
