What's happening in cryptocurrency today?

Why crypto's crashing, TRON stocks up, BitGrail's back, EA and Dragonglass, and bitcoin miner woes.



1. The emperor's clothes are on the blockchain

Sometimes the easiest answers are the hardest to swallow, and deceptively complex.

Crypto's crashing because the November-December bubble is still deflating, and no one's found the right nozzle to pump it back up.

2. TRON is a video game-like virtual world

In the world of TRON, digital items can have real weight.

Want to spend your TRX? A new BitGuild partnership might make it a lot easier.

3. BitGrail lobs a spicy meatball at former customers

Too hot to handle or more than enough for a NANO-starved speculator?

It might hurt, but for many, it's probably an offer they can't refuse.

4. Stronger than Valyrian Steel

EA's Jeff Burton has signed on with Dragonglass and described the Dragonglass team as stronger than Valyrian Steel, to paraphrase him significantly.

That's the gist though.

5. High-low, high-low, it's off to work we go

Many bitcoin miners might be merrier than the current numbers suggest, but some of them must be getting burnt.

For some latecomers, bitcoin ASIC miners must have been a poisoned apple.

6. Auditable compliance procedures and product research, to the max
