The anticipation and the guest list for the Sun-Buffett luncheon grew by day, but then it was pushed back, allegedly due to Sun’s kidney stones, after which the TRX prices dropped. Crypto be silly. But then a whole lot of confusion and speculations were raised after Sun posted, then deleted an apology. Then he went out and people got mad.
The “wow” news ruled this week: Bakkt started testing its bitcoin futures; Coinbase broadened its focus and targets 1B people; Newegg will start accepting bitcoin in 73 additional of its country-specific stores; Hyundai Pay appointed a new CEO with a plan to expand its blockchain-based fintech business; Norwegian Air will allow its passengers to pay for tickets in crypto and to trade on the airline’s very own crypto exchange; South Korea allowed a special free economic blockchain zone in Busan, but sans ICOs; tourists and tour operators in China’s Yunnan Province will be able to get blockchain-powered invoices for online and mobile payments; the twenty-year-old crypto millionaire, Erik Finman, talked to Congressional Representatives about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies; the Bitcoin Family started their educational and charity world tour; and blockchain startup Lympo accidentally met BTC sceptic Jack Ma. To quote a very special doge: “much wow”.
And while the “Wild West” days of crypto are coming to end by the hand of regulators, India is considering imprisonment for holding crypto; American thinkers believe that the US’ biggest political and economic opponents have a strategy behind their crypto and blockchain pursuance; Abra announced restrictions due to regulatory uncertainty; while governments attack Libra, Libra’s playing with words, and the growing number of Libra scams doesn’t help its case. Facebook’s not alone, as Ethereum faced more criticism this week.
In John McAfee news, he was detained by the authorities in the Dominican Republic, then released four days later safe and sound. Though no answer was given to people’s question yet, we can only assume that the dogs are OK too.
And now, the jokes of the week.
Never have I seen a truer meme.
