- “When an ordinary person loses 10, 15, 25 grand, that makes a material difference in their lives and that’s bad,” says Jay Clayton, the head of the SEC, looking at cryptos and preparing his collection of sledgehammers, falling pianos and tons of bricks.
- Kevin Roose at the New York Times rips the KodakCoin ICO to shreds, and includes a comically meaningless diagram from the white paper. Matt Levine from Bloomberg quotes select portions with commentary. No, nobody who entered their email address has received their “Lite Paper” as yet.

- Tor-to-Web proxy onion.top was caught replacing Bitcoin addresses with its own address — but only on ransomware payment sites.

Yet another “joke” Ponzi scheme coin is fully up to industry standard programming ability — a simple bug has locked up all the ether, about $1 million worth. Testnet, what’s that? YOLOOOO! And people are still sending them money!
- An accountant with experience of both cryptocurrency and auditing calls BS on Bitfinex/Tether’s statement about its breakup with its auditors.
