By CCN Markets: You might think that Tyler Winklevoss has gotten ahead of himself by predicting the bitcoin price could cross $15,000 if it surpasses the $10,000 level. That is unless your name is John McAfee, in which case that forecast is absurdly low. McAfee is doubling down on his bullish price prediction, saying that BTC $100,000 will open the floodgates for the cryptocurrency to power higher to $1 million. Unfortunately for the Winklevii, that wasn’t the end of the trolling. McAfee took it a step further by tweeting an image of “Bitcoin Billionaires” with a personal message from the

By CCN Markets: Even though Donald Trump kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign last night in Florida in front of a crowd of roughly 20,000, Wall Street isn’t entirely convinced that he’s committed.

By CCN Markets: An exposé published at TheVerge.com revealed at least one Facebook moderation center is akin to a third world sweatshop. This should come as no surprise given what we already know about Facebook’s company culture. Facebook Whistleblowers Step Forward Facebook outsources moderation services to Cognizant, a publicly-held $35 billion firm that apparently does not care about its work conditions. Three anonymous Facebook contractors breached their non-disclose agreements to inform TheVerge about the conditions. They include death of one worker via heart attack, filthy conditions at workstations and bathrooms, bedbug infestation, sexual harassment, verbal and physical altercations, frequent marijuana

By CCN Markets: Ah, Binance. Many of us remember the original idea. Plenty of us decided to pass on the ICO, which has provided some of the highest returns of any investment in recent times. ICO To King of Crypto There were plenty of good reasons to pass on the ICO. The only stated purpose of the token at the time was that it would give you a discount on trading.

By CCN Markets: There’s a lot of irony in Uber’s lack of crypto acceptance contrasted with its support of Facebook’s Libra project. The company will play a vital role in the early stages of the network, and presumably, it will be one of many vendors who accept the “crypto” out of the gate. Several companies have already agreed to accept the Libra. The Libra can be used in a myriad of ways, from sending money to loved ones to paying overseas contractors. What will be interesting to see is whether a vibrant network of Libra-to-cash methods emerges. Will we have ATMs
