Posted: 23 August 2018 7:47 pm

What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Fight, fight, fight! Beyond economic incentives, Horizen, overhyping, Thailand and Corda, Ethereum price analysis.

1. Bitcoin Spartacus

Which is the real one? Not even (the real) Satoshi Nakamoto knows anymore.

Someone shouted "change places" at Bitcoin Cash's mad hatter tea party.

2. The only thing more revolutionary than digital money...

...is digital not money.

Economic incentives are strange, but not quite as strange as non-monetary alternative consensus models.

3. ZenCash: It's toasted!

ZenCash has rebranded.

It's laid out some extremely ambitious plans, described by an extremely unambitious slogan.

4. "Blockchain is going to solve all our problems"


"No, but how cool would it be if it did!"

5. Thailand is joining the cool crypto club

All the cool nations are creating their own national crypto.

Who doesn't want to be a cool nation?

Ethereum price analysis: World's smallest giant edition

There's a bullish trend line forming against a bearish backdrop. Or are those bearish signals against a bullish background?
