    Where is this 5000x?

    Well if you have not hit it, it looks like you might have to wait awhile to do so, as it's GONE after the latest update. Maybe it will return in 2.0?

    Union Bank of the Ph Launching a crypto ATM

    More outlets for BTC the better! What kind of know your customer regulations are there in the Philippines? It seems to me that is usually the downfall of most BTC ATMs so far, it becomes so cumbersome to use them (and the fees are high) that it really doesn't help as much as it should. Don't get me wrong, this is good news, but I'm just wondering if there will be any institutional barriers for these machines.
  4. While the recent price action has triggered some hope that maybe the long crypto winter is finally over (though I have my doubts) those of you who have been holding (or hodling) crypto and watched it decline in value can take some comfort in that the largest crypto mining firm on the planet had large losses as well. As part of their initial public offering (IPO) filing Bitmain had to report their financials over the last nine months, it was not a pretty picture. Despite solid revenue of $3 billion USD, their profits were down $500 million, so ouch. They also had an unrecognized loss of over 100 million USD on their crypto holdings, ouch. So take heart if you've had to watch the value of your coins go down month after month for the last year, even the biggest player in the space had the same challenges.

  5. Sorry I can't help with the prizes and contests, but I have to say the built in exchange feature of luckygames is worth opening an account there. Really remarkable how many coins it supports when larger sites like Stake can only handle a handful.
  6. Maybe, just maybe, this is a hint of a spring of the long crypto winter we have endured. However, we have seen little rallies like this before. Note that Bitcoin rallied towards the psychologically important 4000 USD level twice today and didn't make it. Given that we were cruising along at 6000+ USD for months, until we get back to at least that, which is also at the 200 day moving average, I'm not going to do too much celebrating. Still, it is far more fun to watch BTC go up, than keep going down and down and down. Good Luck!
  7. Quick little update on this story. Coindesk posted an article comparing JPM coin (crap) to the slow roll out of the lighting network. Kind of interesting. Link: https://www.coindesk.com/will-the-crypto-community-torch-jamie-dimon

    Having some fun with a spammer LOL

    Kudos for looking on the bright side and having some fun with this rainbot abuser. The sad thing is I guess it works for him and even if permed he'll just come back with an alt. Still, if I mute him again it's at least a 1200 hour mute, I already hit him for 100.
  9. Thanks for the heads up on this. I checked their blog post and they act like they are sending out invitations as you have to have opted into receiving their marketing materials. Still, free money! Link to blog article: https://blog.coinbase.com/earn-zcash-while-learning-about-blockchain-privacy-1fc9ecbf533 Enjoy everyone!

    ShapeShift to Rebrand

    I think that is EXACTLY what it was. Initially it sounded like the company basically revolted against Voorhees because they wanted to not risk getting in trouble. So happy to get rid of that aspect of the service. It looks like he's come to terms with it however!

    ShapeShift to Rebrand

    One of the main competitors to CoinSwitch, the service that Stake uses to facilitate alt coin deposits, is ShapeShift, one of the first no registration crypto swap sites. As most people know last September ShapeShift gave up that principled stand and started to require Know Your Customer for its users. This was in stark contrast to ShapeShift's own CEO's Erik Voorhees personal principles for privacy in crypto. Anyway, today I saw this news story about ShapeShift rebranding to integrate more of it's services. It didn't really say what it was rebanding to, so we'll see. There were some good quotes from Voorhees and some notes about the current "crypto winter" we seem to be in.
