    The SEC will find a reason to fine anything that smells centralized, they need a target to hit. ICOs are perfect.


    LTC, ZEC, BTC, TUSD that's all until the market finishes bottoming out, which could still be a long way depending on when the US Fed starts QE round 4.

    Good, IOHK can then dedicate all their resources to ADA!

    I suspect that this is the tip of an iceberg.

    Every poorly supported Shitcoin is going to be vulnerable.
    Every exchange that lists them has exposure.

    If you increase the confirmations required, Crypto becomes even less useful as a transnational currency.

    Bad news for altcoins just keeps coming currently.

    Less than 2 days before a Ethereum's Constantinople major network upgrade, the upgrade is pulled due to a major vulnerability where smart contracts could be exploited similar to the DAO hack. Doesn't give users much time to downgrade software. Pretty scary and embarrassing - but in the long term it's really not that bigger deal.

    Cryptopia has apparently been hacked, can never be sure if these are inside jobs though. Was a pretty popular platform for 100's of smaller altcoins.

    Just a heads up that Coinjar now accepts PAYID!

    I've tried it the first deposit didn't show up but got refunded to my bank account, the second deposit went through might just be teething problems, If you've got coinjar and are planning or currently purchasing its a good idea to familiarise with the system, I'm sure im not the only one who wanted to buy during a crash but would be a couple of days before the funds would clear.... Took about 5 minutes and withdrew quickly thereafter, less of a reason to keep cash on exchange.

    I did it about 3 weeks ago and it worked well, took a few minutes to appear but money was in the account within 10 - 15 minutes so it isn't instant. Support said the first time can be slow
