Harunustaspor, a Turkish amateur football team, just bought a player using bitcoin.
The Bitcoin space might be struggling from a price and a sentiment perspective right now but that hasn’t stopped the flow of quirky news that’s become prevalent over the last six months or so, as the cryptocurrency and blockchain spaces have moved out from under the radar and into the mainstream.
The latest report of this type has come out of Turkey, which (as many reading will likely already be aware) has had something of a turbulent relationship with cryptocurrency over the last few months.
Whenever there’s a thought drilling through your brain trying to get out and you have no idea quite how to word it to finally let it fly, go to the source. Chances are, there’s somebody out there who knows exactly what they’re talking about and there’s no point in rephrasing that, which is already being articulated with perfect clarity.
You’re not an American if you’re not afraid of housing bubbles, you’re not a capitalist if the current outlook of the financial sector doesn’t give you the chills, and you have no dog in the cryptocurrency fight if what’s happening with the market these last few days doesn’t concern you.

Hong Kong: CoinMetro, the financial platform fuelling the future of blockchain innovation, today announced the creation of its new trading platform, CoinMetro Exchange. The platform will streamline cryptocurrency investing for the general public, along with professional and experienced currency traders, offering a complete trading environment for all investors.

- The trading platform translates familiar investing methods into the world of cryptocurrency, such as professional tokenized asset management and exchange traded crypto funds.
Initial coin offerings have become one of the most popular and easy ways to raise money online through cryptocurrencies. But ICOs have also become a popular way for fraudsters to scam people as the SEC recently showed by filing suit against the ICO by PlexCorps.
ICO: A Threat to Venture Capital Firms?
Early stage startup funding has been steadily declining over the last couple of months. The main reason behind this is the rapid rise of initial coin offerings. Nowadays, many startups prefer to host their own token sales instead of seeking funding from an incubator, accelerator, or venture funding firm. One of the major advantages that a token sale has compared to traditional VC funding is that startups are not forced to give up equity in exchange for funding.
In August, on Kibo’s official blog, Kibo team published a detailed report where they summarized all the work done and shared results of the finished testing of the first version of Kibo Lotto gaming platform, in which more than 1000 token holders participated.
The team shared plans for the near future and told about what unsolved issues in Ethereum technology today are constraints to the Kibo launch and to many other projects based on Ethereum smart contracts.
As the team reported, despite the high degree of project readiness, the launch is impossible due to the high cost of gas and significant limitations with the capacity of the network itself.
Russia-based loyalty crypto-platform BioCoin has announced its partnership with international blockchain project RCN Network. The purpose of the partnership is to lend support to farmers and green businesses around the world.
BioCoin is a global blockchain-based loyalty platform created by eco-farming network LavkaLavka. BioCoin’s purpose is to support local farmers and organic food retailers and allow them to return value to their communities through a system of rewards and discounts.
According to BioCoin CEO Boris Akimov, the partnership was inevitable once he spoke with the RCN team and realized that they share the same vision with regards to eco-friendly agriculture paradigm and responsible consumption.
