Major Headlines


Roman Mansion Available at Auction for Bitcoin

Paris Hilton’s father is selling a $38 million dollar Palazzetto mansion by auction where cryptocurrency is accepted.

Circle Invest crypto-line up will grow organically

Circle Pay has been making moves to integrate cryptocurrencies by buying Poloniex and creating Circle Invest. Currently Circle Invest offers Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Zcash and Monero. But they just turned out the details in their blog about how they will be choosing which cryptocurrencies to add to their platform - and it won’t be payments. The release specifically states that they will not accept any payment for being added to their services. The four main components of how they will decide are: 1. Trusting in security of the tokens. 2. Maintaining neutrality to the market as a whole. 3. Defaulting to open, public protocols. 4. Embracing rational market assessments.


300% more Dogecoin transactions than Bitcoin Cash

DOGE transactions were processed several times more frequently than BCH on June 15th than Roger Ver supported Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash is touted by supporters as the “real Bitcoin,” yet no one seems to be using it. Dogecoin has a dubious, satirical birth, but continues to be in the mix. Back in January, Dogecoin earned a “C” Weiss rating, whereas Bitcoin Cash received only a “C-”. The highest ratings were Ethereum and EOS at “B”. Of course, by market cap DOGE is around $340 million, with BCH at almost $15 billion. But this is inevitable, as BCH was a Bitcoin fork created in 2017 when Bitcoin was near an all time high. Dogecoin was created by back in 2013 when Bitcoin’s price was around $100.
