Twitter to start blocking cryptocurrency ads from its platform
The ban comes shortly after Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, said that he sees bitcoin as the future single global currency in 10 years time. It also follows similar action taken by other tech giants against crypto ads. Facebook started a ban on ads for cryptocurrencies, ICOs, and binary options in January, describing these practices as deceptive methods of promotion. Earlier this month, Google also announced that it will change the types of ads that will be allowed on its network as part of a broader crackdown on cryptocurrencies.

Makes me question the whole point of the "difficulty" of generating a cryptocurrency? In essence, the rarity of something translates into a higher value in the real world. Bitcoin along with the many many others, are suppose to be harder to generate based on complex math, but this "bug" shows you can generate it quicker (like printing legal money) or is it like counterfeiting? Proves even more how much more vulnerable 'out of thin air' cryptos are more even than fiat "paper" money.

I saw recently someone I know moving back to work at a local mining operation going up. I still don't get it, unless they know something that we don't.

Bitcoin prices are falling off a cliff as a growing heap of bad news for the crypto market piles up.

Government regulators in Japan slapped six exchange operators with business improvement orders, while a South Korean trading-platform said earlier this week that hackers stole about $30 million in digital tokens.
Bitcoin fell to $6,144 today, according to CoinDesk prices, the lowest level for 2018 and down from the peak of $17,135 in January. Ether has fallen almost 40% this year to $473.
