Bitcoin and cryptocurrency round-up 27 June 2018

Posted: 27 June 2018 7:14 pm

What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Read about Facebook reversing its ad ban, 0x tokenomics, blockchain equity, how to mine and ETH's price analysis.

1. Mark Zuckerberg was that kid who always made up new rules in the middle of the game

That's not to say they're bad rules though.

The ad ban was quite alright, and its quick repeal might be soundly reasoned.

2. If you build it, they won't necessarily come

So build it good.

It's easier said than done, but genuine attempts at decentralised governance are fascinating to watch.

3. Liberté, équity, fraternité

Seize a tokenised blockchain representation of the means of production from the bourgeois oppressors via mutual agreement in a well-regulated secondary market!

4. No matter what you're mining, you have to start at the top

It's piquant and pithy, detailed and complex yet graceful and smooth.

It's either a fine wine or part one of the detailed yet simple guide to how bitcoin mining really works.

Ethereum price analysis: Bear attack

The bears are now in charge. Oh no, now they're trying to run masternodes despite lacking the technical qualifications. That one's clogging up the miners with its fur. And that one's trying to write code but is hampered by its lack of opposable thumbs.

Markets are down, and a literal bear attack might be as good an explanation as any.
