What's happening today?

VeChain maintains its momentum, Weiss Ratings plans to drop some analytical truth-bombs and Starscape Capital is looking a lot like a scam.

At the same time, a strategic partnership is crossing the chains and an X-rated coin has pulled off a $1 million+ ICO, while the weekly price analyses are in.

1. VeChain works the crowd

Another day, another big partnership announcement. VeChain is sharing a lot of news, and its prices appear to be responding.

2. Detailed coin analytics to drop on 24 January

Truth bombs, or just little Weiss lies?

The well known independent ratings company has been grading popular coins, and founder Martin D. Weiss warns that some might come as a surprise.

3. Starscape leaves the earth

A vanishing act is the oldest trick in the book, especially when the magician is holding their audience's money. And Starscape Capital may have just mastered it.

If this is a scam, it's a subtle, well-planned and insidious one.

4. A cross-chain partnership

ICON (ICX) and KyberNetwork are reaching across the aisle to better reach across the blockchains.

It's not quite a seamless cross-blockchain solution yet, but it's potentially heading that way.

5. XXX

Yet another adults-only ICO. It's called PronCoin, its token cap is 69 million and it has an ICO price of $0.069.

It's also raised over $1 million, which is simultaneously too much and not enough.

6. Weekly price analyses

Dive into the current movers and shakers with the weekly price analysis.
