Hacker Moved $7.7M From A Hacked Account

That’s it, that’s the news. Another week – another “million dollars” crypto-related scandal. It’s not surprising anymore, it’s becoming a routine. It’s still a great pleasure to report though. So a hacker (or, as the news outlets put it “an anonymous hacker” as if hackers are usually shout out about their identities at every f*cking …

The Curious Case Of QuadrigaCX And Gerry Cotten

You all have heard about QuadrigaCX, of course. And I hope you all follow the unbelievable drama – or, rather a farce – related the death (or, maybe not even) of its founder, Gerry Cotten. I mean, there will be a movie about this curious case. The whole story just screams “Hollywood blockbuster.” Maybe I …

ICOs In Q4 2018: The Final Countdown

The “ICO” now is not a very cool word; it’s actually a pretty bad one. The story started off amazingly inspiring, and some Cinderellas even have got their Princes Charming; fewer have lived happily ever after. Then the story turned ugly, and Princes became frauds. How sad. However, it’s not surprising for those, who trust …

SEC: Delay In Crypto Regulation Is Actually Good

Man, I love these peeps from the SEC! And our gal Heister Pierce – a.k.a. Crypto Mom (no kiddin’, this is almost an official nickname). So, she basically said that the SEC is doing us all a great favor by postponing the crypto regulation. Like, seriously? Are those guys and gals are utterly blind to …

QuadrigaCX Is Unable To Repay $190M To Its Clients

So, yet another shitty exchange – this time, a Canadian one – which is unable to fulfill its obligations. Only this time the reason behind it is really… I don’t even know. It’s ridiculous, but tragic at the same time. I can’t even laugh at it, it’s that absurd. The only person who was in …

You Can Buy Crypto At Binance With A Credit Card

This sounds right, eh? Like seriously, crypto to mainstream/mass adoption/and all that shit. But if you’re able to use your brains, you’ll see that this news is rather dark. It kinda kills the whole idea of crypto, which is independence and transparency. That’s what Satoshi meant by it, correct? Ok, fine. One has to be …
