What's happening in crypto?

Read about bitcoin price predictions, bitcoin price results, bitcoin ETFs and bitcoin in Venezuela as well as bitcoin and ICOs in Gibraltar.

1. Bitcoin soothsayers prepare appropriate sacrifices

Bitcoin soothsayers have been noting promising augurs in recent days which have paved the way for a run to $8,000 and above.

Whether it holds, sorry hodls, the new price floor is anyone's guess.

2. Talk is cheap

Bitcoin ETFs are looking promising – for reasons entirely unrelated to the popular sentiment around it.

All this talk of grassroots efforts and community engagement just cheapens the hard work of people who want to make a yachtful of cash from bringing bitcoin ETFs to market.

3. What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Can a stablecoin be stable without a peg?

The answers are a kind of light slapping sound, and probably yes, respectively.

4. Do you smell what the rock is cooking?

If you said it smells like a legal exchange for ICO token sales via the Gibraltar Stock Exchange, you must have a good nose.

Because it is.
