Welcome to another edition of our Crypto Week In Review. We spent a great deal talking about a proposal to reorg the Bitcoin blockchain after a certain hack. A lot of people had some strong reactions when such a reorg was mentioned. Now this story goes further in another direction. There was a Bitcoin Cash “51% attack” organized by two mining pools which obviously had the majority of votes to carry out the attack. Let’s see what happened during this BCH 51% May attack.
Welcome to the newest Crypto Week In Review. This week, unfortunately, we continue in a similar fashion and the main news of the week is the Cryptopia hack culmination – liquidation. We take a moment to revisit the hack, results of it, and the brief period of the Cryptopia activity after the hack. In the end, the hack was too big for the exchange to handle it. We also visit some of the happenings this week like Ledger Nano X first shipment and a threat unpatched Ethereum clients pose. Also, Bitfinex and Tether drama continues as New York Supreme Court orders freezing all USDT transfers to Bitfinex. Enjoy this edition of Crypto Week In Review.
After some discussions and community feedback, we decided it is time to change how our Crypto Week In Review reports look like. Previously we would briefly discuss the most important happening of the day, and we would do that for every day in the week. While it was nice to get a preview of the entire week, we didn’t have enough space to get into some things in greater detail. With this change, we can pick the most relevant information (or two) and discuss it in a more thorough and detailed fashion. Welcome to the fresh new format, we hope you enjoy the read. As you can all already guess, this week we talk about the big Binance hack.
We already wrote about Zano in our pre-mainnet launch review. As a follow-up, we present you an interview with Crypjunkie – Zano team member.

Without further ado, let’s get started with the Zano interview. Enjoy the read.

Bitfinex continues its plans like Tether scandal didn’t happen. Now they announce they will be having an IEO for their token called LEO. We are curious to see how this will culminate. We also mention Shellbot malware update and what threat it poses for miners. Enjoy our #26 review of the happenings in crypto space!
