Bitcoin SV Pumps 125% as Calvin Ayre Runs Satoshi Victory Lap

By CCN: Bitcoin SV (BSV) more than doubled in price on Tuesday fresh off the back of confirmation that Craig S. Wright had registered Bitcoin copyright claims with the U.S. government. The 125% pump in BSV’s value may have been helped along (not a legal term) by Bitcoin SV cheerleader Calvin Ayre. The billionaire owner of Coingeek appeared to ‘inflate’ the importance of Craig Wright’s purely cosmetic copyright claim, suggesting it confirmed his status as Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto. Calvin Ayre: Convert Your ‘Sh** Coins’ to Bitcoin SV Ayre started…

Elon Musk Has a Problem on His Hands as Tesla Vehicles Catch Fire

By CCN: The toughest thing about being a circus huckster is when your snake oil explodes in your face. Such is the case with the P.T. Barnum of our time, Elon Musk. He never said that owning a Tesla would come with the occasional side effect of the bursting into flames without warning. That was the case regarding an incident in Shanghai in April, where this security camera caught a Model S seemingly in an act of spontaneous combustion: The vehicle was parked for about a half hour before pulling a…

Bill Nye’s Lying Pants, Not the Planet, Are on ‘F***ing Fire’

By CCN: On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, Bill Nye The Science Guy sat down to lecture America about climate change and cuss a lot. The kid’s science show host has a very important and very scientific-sounding message for you: “The planet’s on f***ing fire.” In a segment about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, Bill Nye was apparently very pleased with himself and seemed to get carried away showing off how much more intelligent, mature, and forward-thinking he is than all of you idiots that live…

Is Bitcoin Fundamentally Incapable of Mass Adoption? The Economist Thinks So

An article out today in the Economist lists several reasons why Bitcoin may never have a “long-lasting” recovery. The unnamed author writes, in part: “The bust has been correspondingly brutal. Those who bought near the top were left with one of the world’s worst-performing assets. Cryptocurrency startups fired employees; banks shelved their products. On March 14th the CBOE said it would soon stop offering Bitcoin futures.” He or she neglects to mention that Bitcoin has previously been one of the best performing assets as well. An interesting point to make:…

Swedbank Fires CEO in $151 Billion Money Laundering Scandal

By CCN.com: In recent years, government agencies across the world have vamped up their efforts to crackdown on money laundering involving cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.
