What's happening in cryptocurrency?

Questioning the futures, Circle gets Monero, ICE eyes bitcoin, the case for ICOs and Ethereum weekly price analysis.

1. Yeah, but...

Nothing in crypto can ever be simple.

The recent study saying that CME/CBOE bitcoin futures contracts are pushing down prices is no exception.

2. Ring signatures obviously fit into a Circle

Circle Invest now offers Monero, expanding its selective range of coins.

3. Breaking: Wall Street is willing to follow the money

Beyond practical concerns, it's not terribly worried about whether it's digital or not.

Who'da thunk it.

4. Binance: ICOs rule VCs drool

The CEO of Binance has made an impassioned argument for the benefits of ICOs.

It's a somewhat personal argument for him.

5. Ethereum price analysis: Spooky story edition

Ethereum prices went bump in the night as the SEC chased Ethereum around trying to eat it. Then it woke up and it was all a dream.
