Although news of hacks are hardly fun, the crypto community is well-known for taking everything in stride and having a few jokes at their own expense. Even if the market somehow collapsed, you could bet you’d see loads of jokes about it, even from people who were painfully hit by it, as this mindset helped the community survive loads of breaking events.
The week started with Lightning Network coming to the Apple Watch, a Nobel prize winner shunning crypto, Charles Hoskinson predicting when crypto will be ready for institutional money, and a new Bitcoin Improvement Proposal. Then the Binance hack shook the cryptoverse, which gave birth to a myriad of discussions, including a reorg debate. Meanwhile, Bitfinex wants to do an IEO, Bitcoin moves above USD 6,000, Facebook makes crypto ad U-Turn, French giant chooses Ethereum for its experiment, and the week ends with a US Congressman wanting to outlaw crypto, while traders are trying to guess when the next altcoin season may start.

What they mean when they say “disrupting the market.” Dogecoin did it first.

I mean, maybe it could be worth something, but you should definitely do your own research first.
Anyone heard of this $USD altcoin? From what I understand: is pre-mined, emission schedule secretly determined, neither quantity outstanding nor authenticity can be cryptographically proven & most abominable cannot directly hodl private keys. Is @federalreserve altcoin a scam? 🧐 pic.twitter.com/pvTbVgso7B
