    Overhearing waiters talking about how they are "investing in cryptocurrencies" via "invest companies" which are totally not a recruitment/finance scam.

    Sometimes in life, you just listen and keep quiet.

    If it achieves nothing else crypto currencies will drive us into becoming a level 1 civilization on the Kardashev Scale just to power all the blockchains.

    Wasn't Kodak basically a penny stock for the time being? So "up 120%" wouldn't mean that much.

    Bitcoin collapses in South Korea as regulator threatens to ban trading
    Also comes with this choice quote of a minister who seems to have woken up in a particularly retarded mood.

    Saw this on Vice today

    The Chinese government will end bitcoin mining operations in the coming months, Bloomberg reported over the weekend, a move that could have a massive impact on the price of the world’s biggest digital currency.

    It's not going to change the supply of bitcoin by any significant amount. That's not how mining works.

    New bitcoins are produced at a relatively consistent speed, with miners competing to "win" the currency that's produced with each new block. Less miners just means the remaining miners have a better chance to win each block, it doesn't mean more Bitcoin is going to be generated.

    Good old clueless media.

    I see you’ve created a straw man and then quite handily destroyed it.

    I see you didn't read the note at the bottom of their article.

    They got it all wrong before and have now re-written it. The first version of their article wittered on about changes in the volume of bitcoin being produced.

    Edit: I'm probably not the only one who sent them a message about it

    Transaction fees would skyrocket if China goes offline. They are already too high and bitcoin has lost all meaning other than a speculative device.

    Meanwhile, in Hollandistan.

    Dutch blockchain company LegalThings announced in a press release on Wednesday that it is developing an app, LegalFling, which in theory could allow about-to-bone partners to log what they are and are not okay with before they bone. The company notes that you can mark your do’s and don’ts “with the swipe of a finger.”
    Consent. Now on the blockchain.
