9 Ks, 12.5 Percents, 51 Attacks and 20 Crypto Jokes
This crypto week, we watched Bitcoin play with USD 9K while coronavirus fears weighed on stocks, saw BTC usage rising on darknet markets, found a clear indication of healthy BTC adoption, and discovered that the 51% attack on BTC is pricier and on ETH cheaper. Speaking of ETH, a USD 1.57 million bet was placed in hopes that ETH will exceed USD 600 before the end of March. Speaking of attacks, Bitcoin Gold suffered two 51% attacks. And while two former BitTorrent employees are suing Tron, a pool of anonymous Bitcoin Cash miners decided not to start a competing pool for now, but the 12.5% dev tax might still be implemented. Meanwhile Zcash community voted to change mining rewards. While Line is about to bring its token to 82 million users, former Google VP of Product joined Coinbase.
We’re far from over. Russian giant Rostec aims to halve its blockchain research and development fund, a Spanish tax agency will intensify its scrutiny of crypto in 2020, UK court told Bitfinex to freeze a Bitcoin account possibly linked to ransomware, American presidential candidate Andrew Yang called again for a framework of cryptocurrency regulations, another big company just stepped onto Japan’s crypto scene, altcoin delisting claimed surprising casualties in South Korea, and experts at Davos stated that central banks focus on crypto due to the fear of exclusion. After Kobe Bryant's tragic death, the Cryptoverse remembered the time Black Mamba paid it a visit. We saw Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) launch a club-owned token named $PSG , and we looked into what lessons BTC can learn from cash. We found out who funds BTC developers and that a company will pay you to hack their crypto wallet.
Let’s laugh at some jokes now.
Glad you could join us. Let us start with an advice.

You'll be stuck in front of the computer from 9-9 instead.
Now, tell me how was your week?
How about a traditional meme to celebrate the 9K occasion?

The chat about your work can go like this…
Bumped into my long lost friend.— CEO of Gold (@cryptoSqueeze) January 15, 2020
He asked me what I'm doing now.
I said trading Bitcoin.
He asked which Bitcoin?
…or like this.

Me: uh huh
Him: yeah, it was at 20,000 once. Then it went all the way to 3,000... and now it's back at 9,000.
You never know what it's doing. Even when you're looking right at it.
Mr Bitcoin, what is it you are doing?! pic.twitter.com/JNTTiYy4JC— Bulldog (@CryptoBulld0g) January 19, 2020
And this is what happens when you ask somebody about it.
