What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Blockchain obstacles, South Korean ICO news, creative kid on the block, bitcoin growth and weekly price round-up.

1. Who knows and who cares

Those are the two main obstacles for wider blockchain adoption.

A lack of knowledge, and simply having no interest.

2. ICO가 도시에 온다

ICOs are returning to the Korean peninsula, under prudent legislative eyes.

3. LEGO blocks, strung together in some chain-like arrangement

A media, entertainment and creative industries group including LEGO and more is examining how blockchain can help them.

4. Bitcoin is lifting with its knees, not its back

Less explosive, but perhaps much safer.

Then again, there's always the chance of kneecaps exploding. Or something.

5. It was the best of times, it was the okayest of times

The top coins saw a steady week of growth, explosive by the standards of any other asset class but modestly pleasing by crypto standards. Outside the big names, it's as risky as always.
