What's happening in cryptocurrency?

ETF down, China crypto down, Bitcoin Cash down, FOMO3D round 1 down, Indiegogo comes on down, XRP weekly price analysis.

1. Why was seven afraid of eight?

Because seven ate nine bitcoin ETFs.

With the same rationale for all.

2. Everything seems to be in order

Ever thought about how many thousands of people were saved from utter ruination by China's crypto ban?

Credit where credit's due, and not where it's not.

3. "Hang on a second, we can't all be the real Satoshi."

"Oh yeah? Watch this."

And on the umpteenth day, Satoshi looked at what he had created, and facepalmed.

4. It was a tense match, but in the end he just wanted it a little more

Or a lot more.

A human has outsmarted an army of bots to take the $3 million FOMO3D jackpot.

5. Well, technically...

Indiegogo is offering security tokens.

That is to say, someone else entirely is offering security tokens, but Indiegogo is just keen as beans about it all.

XRP weekly price analysis: Up edition

It's going up. But that might just be because people are looking at it sideways.
