What's happening in cryptocurrency?

The state of the art, Coinbase securities, Kolionovo, BlockBroker scam, social impact blockchain, LTC price analysis.

1. What does the future hold?

Hope you aren't expecting an answer.

At the same time, all projects need to make predictions and it can be worth paying attention to exactly what kinds of predictions they make.

2. Everything's coming up brokers

Coinbase is shaping up to start dealing securities.

It's all proceeding to plan.

3. Not your average crypto utopia, fortunately

Cryptocurrency utopias are a dime a dozen. Proverbially at least. In reality, they'll cost people a large portion of money and all of their dignity.

Forget the billionaires looking for a way to waste their money. The real action is in the villages where cryptocurrency has taken off by necessity.

4. "I wish there was a surefire way to tell scam ICOs apart from non-scams"

"Your wish is granted," said the BlockBroker anti-ICO-scam scammers.

ICO review sites are at that point where they would happily tell investors to put their money into a literal red flag.

5. Crypto charity idea: People buy coins then manipulate its price upwards

Boom. Instant net worth gain on paper.

Not-actually-a-jokes aside, blockchain is opening new doors for creative impactful ideas.

Litecoin price analysis: No it still doesn't do anything edition

Litecoin has been trading sluggishly lately, perhaps because it literally doesn't do anything and probably never will. But some analysts remain bullish in its long term future, citing its sheer moneyness and total spendability. Meanwhile, Litecoin holders look ahead to wider acceptance of LTC as a payment method because that's literally the only thing Litecoin has to look forward to.
