Well, well, well. What have we here?

Crypto markets are quiet ahead of the storm that may or may not come, a new Stellar DEX is already making waves and curious weekend trading patterns recur around the markets.

Traders seem to be digging the new Stellarport Stellar Lumens DEX.

After launching today it seems to have cut through the slack markets.

3. On Saturdays we trade crypto

Take a look at these price patterns from over the last week. They can only mean one thing.

Decentralised crypto party!

4. Commbank blinks

Two parties are in a showdown. One of them keeps spending money they may or may not have on cryptocurrency, and the other risks being stuck with the bill if the market tanks.

Yeah, you can see why the banks have started blocking credit card cryptocurrency purchases.

5. How do you put an ox on the blockchain?

You can't. Not yet at least. But you can digitise the land beneath it.

While Australian agri-tech moves to smart farms, Indian agri-tech is moving to smart land.
