Posted: 26 June 2018 7:20 pm

What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about the Tether money machine, the government money machine, the social media money machine, the VC money machine and bitcoin's price analysis.

1. Tether prints more money

Tether printed money.

It went down as well as expected – no matter what one expected.

2. RBA refrains from printing more money

It's still deciding what kind of money to print.

Some kinds of money are better than other money and less likely to unintentionally lead to the collapse of civilisation as we know it.

3. Social media's prints on money

Social media posts leave fingerprints on crypto prices.

But they leave the prints before the price movements, not after.

4. VC firm pounces on money

Get a few hundred million of one kind of money, turn it into a few hundred million of another kind of money, start arguing the technicalities of money and assets, and bob's your uncle.

Andreessen Horowitz is undeterred, to the tune of $300 million, by the current crypto downturn.
