The top cryptocurrencies for the week of February 26th
Whether you hold, trade, or casually follow bitcoin, there’s no denying that these are interesting times for blockchain assets. While things are certainly less volatile than they were a few weeks ago, there were plenty of jaw-dropping bitcoin headlines this week.
In case you missed it, the European Union’s financial chief announced that the EU would consider regulating cryptocurrencies. It’s worth noting that G20 central bankers and finance ministers will be meeting this March in Buenos Aires and blockchain assets will definitely be a topic of conversation. Of course, if governments are involved, then you can expect any proposals and implementations to be anything but swift.
Remember 50 Cent? The former hip hop superstar has bragged for years that he made $8 million by accepting bitcoin as a payment method for his 2014 album. Yet in recent bankruptcy documents, Curtis Jackson, as he’s legally known, revealed that he has never held bitcoin. Apparently, a third party converted his bitcoin sales to US dollars upon receipt back when they were worthless by today’s standards.
Yesterday, tech pioneer and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak remarked that he was scammed out of 7 bitcoins. Apparently, he sold them to someone who used a fake credit card. Despite the incident, the American inventor still supports blockchain currencies and appreciates that they can’t be manipulated or altered by the government. If there’s a moral to this story, it’s that it’s important to know who you’re dealing with. That’s probably why card fans love using their favorite cryptocurrency to play live bitcoin poker at Americas card room.

We’re never surprised to see Litecoin on our list of top cryptocurrencies. Not only has the blockchain currency been around since 2011, but it’s the fifth most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap. One of the reasons people love using Litecoin is that it generates blocks four times faster than its bitcoin counterpart. In other words, you won’t have to wait 15 minutes for your transaction to be approved. Plus it’s cheap to use.
