This is the first edition pilot episode of Blockchain News. This project is in beta and we would love everyone’s 2-cents on this project! Tell us what you like, what you didn’t like and whatever you’d like to see!
1) New all time highs and market caps for Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin.
2) Details on XBT futures trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Chicago Mercantile Exchange and plans on a Nasdaq edition.
3) The latest ICO shut down by the SEC, a restaurant review site on the blockchain called Munchee, that now has to refund $15 million to investors.
4) Cryptokitties for charity. A man on Twitter put out a call that if he received 500 retweets, he would sell and donate his $92,000 Cryptokitty collection.
As this is a first edition, we are working to iterate based on community feedback. As the cryptoverse moves at lightning speed and we are not yet up to daily production, we understand that some of this information may be out of date.
We would love to hear your thoughts on content, length, graphics, style, etc., both positive and constructive, in order to deliver a stellar newscast that represents a wide spectrum of not only important financial aspects of blockchain technology, but human interest stories, crowdfunded and transparent charity projects, fun facts, important conversations like environmental impacts, working toward watch-dogging and much, much more.
If you have any feedback or story ideas, we would love to hear from you in the comments, through social media, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org with stories you would like to see on the next episode, or ideas on partnerships and collaboration.
