Shitcoin.com Newsletter #35 (March 22nd, 2019)
You can tell it’s been an interesting week when there are very few mentions of price in the newsletter. This week has been a tastebud tantalizer if spicy news is your food of choice.
What has been the most 2019 move of this year’s presidential candidates?
Andrew Yang has been pulling in a new wave of voters by getting involved in Crypto-Twitter. You couldn’t make this shit up.
Speaking of forming an army, Ripple Labs mysteriously sold $400m worth of XRP in 2018. Where has that money been going? We can only make an educated guess…
A spicy start you may say, well this journey through the Silk Road of memes and crypto news is only just beginning. Next up we divert your attention to our good friend Dr Craig Wright.
As you may know Craig had his Twitter account suspended recently and then proceeded to threaten Jack/Twitter. The bot following his account (tweeting for the many of us who are blocked) confirmed this is the case.
As expected Crypto Twitter responded to Craigs exceptional form in the only way it knows how.
Meanwhile Craigs new project isn’t getting much support from Bitstamp.
But where is Calvin Ayre in all of this? Oh, don’t you worry, we’ve got plenty of Calvin for you this week.
To get us started here are some photos of him with some women of varying ages.
The Emperor of Bitcoin gave a very interesting take on those photos.
You may have also seen John McAfee sticking his oar in. This man knows how to stir things up.
Will they soon be getting up to no good? Or is a Celebrity Deathmatch on the cards?
Probably not, our prediction is you may see John’s boat pulling into Antigua sometime soon for beers and debauchery. You heard it here first.
Meanwhile SV’s competitor, BCH has been busy on the development side of things and has brought Schnorr to the coin before it has arrived on BTC.
And following rumours of some run ins with the Chinese authorities Haipo Yang of Coinex has been sending out some cryptic tweets.
It’s good to have you back Haipo!
MtGox… what’s the latest?
Rumours were flying that Mark had been found guilty. But reports are surfacing that he has been cleared on embezzlement charges in Japanese court.
This article runs through the whole story thus far. A great read if you’re looking to get up to speed.

The lion of the magical crypto friends has been helping his team with a new release. Say hello to Blockstream Green.
It’s time to round this off. We leave you this week with two things to ponder.
- If you’re still feeling a little butthurt over your 93% shitcoin loss, are you considering going all in now so you can one day be like Cobie?
- Are you interested in a micro-implant with a crypto wallet to make sure your hot wallet really is hot?
