What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Tether on handling the truth, FRED crypto, Ireland crypto crackdown, ERC721, Litecoin and EOS price analysis.

1. Tether: My lawyer says you can't handle the truth

Is Tether above the law?

On the one hand no one's above the law. But on the other hand it's a billionaire. So who knows.

2. Crypto prices are volatile, but they definitely have prices

St Louis Federal Reserve is adding a cryptocurrency index to its research database.

It's based on Coinbase prices and isn't a new way of measuring crypto prices, but it sure is an official one.

3. Something something pot of gold

It's Ireland's turn for a crypto crackdown.

Like elsewhere, it's being unilaterally perpetrated by banks which have decided that people shouldn't be touching the stuff.

4. The future smells fungy

Are video games really the best use of this revolutionary technology?

Kind of. It's the first time in history that non-fungible digital assets have been possible, and the principles applied to games can be seen elsewhere.

Weekly price analysis: Is this thing on edition?

Litecoin just flew down from December prices and boy are its arms tired. Meanwhile, EOS crossed the road from its mainnet launch, but remains a sitting duck.

Now they're just kind of lying there. Give 'em a poke, see if they stir. Are these coins on? They're not sleeping, it's just what they call "trading in a narrow band".
