🗞 New Website Ranks 600 Cryptocurrencies by Github Activity

From market cap to trading volume, there’s a lot of ways to assess and quantify cryptocurrencies.

🗞 Tether Severs Ties With Its Auditor, Leaving Its Accounts Shrouded in Mystery

Barely a week passes when Tether isn’t in the news. For a so-called stable coin, Tether and its acolyte Bitfinex are at the center of a lot of instability within the cryptoverse. After it emerged over the weekend that Tether had kissed goodbye to its auditor, critics of the opaque company began to wonder whether they would ever be granted a glance at the company’s books.

different from other crypto currencies as they are supported by real economic activity and cash flow through the creation of advanced ultra-capacitors with factory default settings. Farad's energy storage innovation is in terms of finding, manufacturing and delivering ultra capacitors, while Blockchain is based on the ERC20 Ethereum Smart Contract.

The FRD is claimed to have strong economic fundamentals and is the first of its kind among the crypto currencies currently available in the market. Farad said it aims to enable currency holders to have a unique and secure access to the ultra-capacitor market by narrowing their membership to the early stages of its ultra-capacitor manufacturing process.
