CCN reported deeply on a pyramid scheme involving cloud mining and a highly pumped-and-dumped cryptocurrency called B2G (“Bitcoiin2G”). It was one of the longest and deepest reports of this reporter’s life. We found that Steven Seagal promoted B2G, and the scheme was hurting enough people that the State of New Jersey officially banned the promotion of it. B2G’s first use case was as a way to avoid paying people out in Bitcoin, via the various DragonMining (and affiliated) cloud mining scams. McAfee Joins Steven Seagal in Promoting B2G As we reported, at the time of its initial usage, only two

By CCN: John McAfee continues to trumpet a bitcoin price that will hit $1 million by the end of the decade. He isn’t even afraid of betting his manhood on the same. Nonetheless, crypto bears keep coming back to spoil the party. One such doubter is UBS analyst Kevin Dennean. UBS Analyst: Bitcoin Price Faces a Long Road to Recovery According to Forbes, Dennean recently wrote: “We’re struck by how long it took other asset bubbles to recover their peak levels (as long as 22 years for the Dow Jones Industrials) and how pedestrian the annualized returns from trough to

By CCN: Russian operatives did play a role in the 2016 U.S elections.
