What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Freeh Tether, Insomnia on the blockchain, blockchain-powered music festival, Long Blockchain subpoena, Litecoin price analysis.

1. "That was easy! We should do more of that."

Controversial former FBI director Louis Freeh is making crypto plans for a crypto future.

His law firm publicly cut its teeth on Tether, and is hungry for more.

2. Different strokes for different folks

Not all game studios have the same processes.

Keen innovators with quicker game generation cycles might run at blockchain, while masterpiece-type studios might take longer.

3. Yes, it's in San Francisco

The world's first blockchain-powered music festival is in San Francisco. Obviously.

Come for the blockchain, stay while you try to work out how to pronounce the artists' names.

4. Has that always been there?

Didn't that blockchain company used to be some kind of fruit juice company?

Maybe a subpoena will get to the bottom of this.

Litecoin price analysis: Good news bad news scenario edition

The good news is the good news. The bad news is the price.
