Crash! Boom! Bang! and 20 Crypto Jokes
What an eventful, volatile week this has been. After Bitcoin mining difficulty and hashrate hit new highs, Bitcoin dropped suddenly to January lows, with altcoins suffering major losses, and then it crashed to USD 5,000 levels, and crypto exchanges had to make emergency moves to deal with disrupted transactions. Meanwhile, analysts said coronavirus fears impacted the price when it dropped first, while some traders believed that PlusToken might’ve been behind this, which still has BTC 61,229 undistributed. And while BAT outperformed Bitcoin at a major parnership news, IOTA’s co-founder said he’ll personally repay the victims of the recent hack, and the mainnet was switched back on. Meanwhile, Ethereum locked in DeFi was rising, while flash loan holes are being plugged and MakerDAO raised the governance delay, but following the market crash, DeFi went through its own major turbulence.
That’s not all. There were reports that ‘old’ Binance users from the U.S. can still use it, Chinese blockchain pilot processed USD 56 million worth of international trade, suspected Coincheck hackers were arrested after selling XEM for Bitcoin, and Samsung told us in which countries its Blockchain Keystore is available. Also, WeMade Tree will release two new major blockchain-powered mobile gaming titles, an Ethereum-based platform offers blockchain and crypto eductional services for teachers and students in coronavirus lockdown, and the CEO of Torus Labs was diagnosed with Covid-19, warning attendees of two Ethereum conferences to get tested. Finally, 10 crypto minds shared their opinions on the post-crash BTC and the coin’s future, while many bitcoiners pointed towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
Let’s laugh at some week-appropriate jokes now. We definitely deserve it.
