The Week In Bitcoin - Issue #92: Coinbase's New Project - Token, Litecoin Roundtable & Other News From The Week
By The Week In Bitcoin • Issue #34
This week, Coinbase released an Ethereum WeChat inspired app. There was also a Litecoin roundtable 😂 - which resulted in the endorsement of a “Segregated Witness soft fork on Litecoin”. Also, you’ll want to read about “Jack & The Giant Joint-Stock Pepe: The History & Future of the Corporation” - interesting indeed.
