What's happening in cryptocurrency?

EOS bug hunt, TRON extra bug hunt, customs blockchain, ASKfm on Everest, SEC crypto czar and Ripple price analysis.

1. Fuzzer logic

One bounty hunter managed to pull in a $120,000 payday from EOS, finding a dozen separate bugs.

He's tested other coins too, with some interesting findings.

2. Wanted: Bounty hunters, bounties

TRON has bumped up its bug bounty to a $10 million cap.

It's hard to imagine a bug so serious that TRON's all like "Oh yeah, good find. That one's definitely worth $10 million".

3. In the loop

Korea Customs Service is using loopchain for its new customs system.

It solves a very big and boring problem. Spoiler – it involves import taxes.

4. Ask a dumb question...

Get a dumb answer.

Ask a somewhat horrifying question, get a somewhat horrifying answer.

5. A subject matter expert before the subject mattered

The SEC has a new crypto czar, quarterbacking for the agency on everything blockchain.

Their official job title is word salad and they bring a wealth of experience to the table.

Ripple price analysis: Quack like a bull edition

Will Ripple see wider adoption and price rises? Is a bear catholic? Does the pope poop in the woods?
