Another Monday, another Funday. But then again, isn’t it always a funday in the glorious land of cryptocurrency?

No worries, sit back and relax and see what important/interesting things you’ve missed out on over the weekend in our Monday report. Enjoy.

You guys remember Bitconnect right? You know, BITCONNEEEEEECT!!

Youtube has just been dragged into a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit is against notorious Bitconnect, and now Youtube is being blamed for failing to protect its users from fraudulent and scam videos. I personally think this is just silly, as Youtube is a platform for anyone to upload and share their own videos and voice their thoughts and opinions. But people are mad that they lost their entire life savings, I can understand that. I still think it’s silly though.

I found this particular article interesting; Evan Cheng, who is Facebook’s Director of Engineering has been moved to the same position at the new Facebook blockchain team. I remember thinking back when they uplifted their Cryptocurrency ban on Ads, that they were preparing to do something crypto-related themselves. Could this be the case?

Nexon linked to Bitstamp? It had been rumored for some time now that Nexon, a game developer company wanted to pay as much as $500 million for Bitstamp. But with recent public filings, it may very well prove the link between the two companies. Major companies buying major crypto companies, who said crypto will die?

Expedia has long been known for accepting Bitcoin, even way back since 2014. But lately, they’ve kind of just quietly stopped accepting the coin. Without much of a notice or a reason why to their users.

Sunday 8th

While wearing the most colourful shirt of a lama with a unicorn horn and a cat sitting on it while UFOs flew above them. Ethereum Founder, Vitalik Buterin comments that he “definitely hope centralized exchanges go burn in hell as much as possible.” Good ole Buterin.
