Short update: Reddit News

I haven’t had much time to report on Cryptocurrency news lately (and I probably won’t for another month or so), but here are some interesting things I have found lately. Apparently Bithumb, a large cryptocurrency exchange, was hacked. Here is a Reddit link to learn more.

Also on the subject of Reddit, here is a list of the top cryptocurrency subreddits.  You might notice number 1 and number 6 are both Bitcoin related. This is due to a raging battle between two ideologies. /R/Bitcoin is known to censor opposing points of view, they don’t allow people to discuss Segwit or Bitcoin unlimited (read more on this here). /R/BTC doesn’t seem to censor differing opinions. The BTC community also complains about the hostility found on /R/Bitcoin. I personally have experienced that too (As well as people who think they understand economics, but really don't).   

Lastly, here is a link to an interesting thread in Reddit about which coins people don’t own and why. Sometimes is difficult to get real criticism and this might be a good place to get some.
