It was a busy weekend on the crypto front, so we thought we’d offer a Monday Morning Crypto Update. Here goes…
HBO Coin Coming?
Well, it happened. HBO’s John Oliver did a piece on “Last Week Tonight” and it’s pretty darn good.
I watched it and have just a few beefs with it:
- John is too snarky for my taste
- It only touches on Bitcoin and then a bunch of scam coins, giving zero attention to really good projects people in this space should know about (Ethereum, Ripple, etc.)
- And it brings up Google Glass – why?
In all seriousness, if you have 25 minutes to spend, give this a watch. As an overview for the masses, it’s probably the best piece I’ve watched yet. No, there won’t be an HBO Coin.
A University in Cyprus? Really?
Really – I’ve signed up for a MOOC – “Massive Open Online Course” – from the University of Nicosia. The school claims to be the first offering a Master of Science in Digital Currency, and this first course on crypto is free (and part of the Master’s program).
If you want to check that out, feel free to go here: University of Nicosia.
That’s a Coinbase chart from just a bit ago; it appears that the worst of the weekend might be behind us.
The price stuff is all a matter of perspective: 9000 and change is less than half of what Bitcoin peaked at in December.
9000 and change is also 9 times (and then some) Bitcoin’s prices from last year.
POW Keeps Moving Forward
Here’s a tweet updating folks on status – note that Metacoin is working with POW on their marketing and communications – here’s our REFERRAL LINK.
>>Referral System Update<<
In recent weeks we had to split team to allow half to upgrade the referral system. This was due to enhanced Facebook requirements to address OAuth token hijacking issue. It’s done, we’re compliant – now fully focused on Bridge. https://t.co/Qv2dTrAmWY pic.twitter.com/uCuW23CwYz
