0/ Lots of #CryptoNews as always! Below is a look into some of the eye-catching happenings in the #crypto and #blockchain space over the past 24 hours or so...
1/ 📝 @Ethfinex's #0x-powered #EthfinexTrustless hybrid DEX listed @MakerDAO [ $MKR / $DAI ], @SpankChain [ $SPANK ], @AttentionToken [ $BAT ], @AI_Autonio [ $NIO ] and @AugurProject [ $REP ].

Trade instantly vs. a highly liquid, centralized order book:
2/ 🔛 @GetGitcoin unveiled 'Kudos', an easy way to show appreciation and build relationships in open source.

Each Kudos is ltd. edition, sovereign to #Ethereum's #blockchain, with a custom art piece your collaborator can show off on their #Gitcoin profile (or #ERC721 wallet).
3/ 💰 @VirgilGr (Special Projects, @Ethereum) announced a donation of 15,000 ETC (~$150,000 USD) to the @ETCCooperative (@ETH_Classic).

Check out his post to learn of the Foundation's justifications for the donation:…
4/ ✌️ @Genesis_Vision [ $GVT ] dropped a dual-announcement. Firstly, v2.0 of its #whitepaper, which notably introduced a new mineable token, $GVN (see:…).

Also, the #crypto project introduced its first module, which is 'manager only' until Thursday.
5/ 🎨 @MakerDAO [ $MKR ] overhauled their CDP portal for single collateral $DAI.

The number of clicks required to open a 'Collateralized Debt Positions (CDP)' has been slashed from 8 to 2. #Ledger and #Trezor support, too. Pretty sleek indeed!
6/ 🆕 The team over at @dydxprotocol released Leveraged ETH [ $LETH ], the second margin token available on its trading platform, expo.

LETH is a token pegged to a leveraged long position on $ETH, with an initial leverage ratio of 2x. Neat!
7/ ⏪ At #Devcon4, Fabian Vogelsteller (@feindura) - co-author of #Ethereum's #ERC20 standard - introduced the crowd to the concept of a #ReverseICO.

Dubbed #RICO, it'd allow #ICO investors to withdraw their funded capital, lowering the risk of scams/empty promises from teams.
8/ 🎭 @CivicKey [ $CVC ] joined decentralized hardware-based cybersecurity firm @RivetzCorp in their partnership w/ @Telefonica's #cybersecurity unit, @ElevenPaths, to integrate its #blockchain-powered I.D. solution

Will improve billions of mobile users' security and autonomy!
9a/ 🇨🇿 @VitalikButerin has presented at #Devcon4 in Prague on the multi-year-long period preceding the next instalment of #Ethereum: Serenity.

Vitalik on oft-used #Serenity synonyms: #Shasper is an "insanely lame" term, whilst 'Ethereum 2.0' doesn't quite cut it. Duly noted!
9b/ 😂 "Happy anniversary of Satoshi's whitepaper, 10 years....there, 10 in binary counting!"

Good luck to anyone trying to top the #Ethereum co-founder's opening zinger at #Devcon4.
10/ 🤠 @CaitlinLong_ shared a 12-part thread detailing the *7* new #blockchain-friendly bills that were today sent to the Wyoming State Legislature for their upcoming legislative session.

All happening in #Wyoming! November 29-30 in Casper will be huge.
11/ 🗞️ @amlewis4 shared the upcoming launch of his personal newsletter. Sign up here:

Along with the (planned to be) weekly issue, Ari will - over the next couple of weeks - announce links to some new #cryptocurrency stuff he's involved in. Can't wait!
12/ 💅 The Docademic project is now known as @Doc__Com.

The Medical Token Currency [ $MTC ] retains its name, ticker, and function, that is, to interact with the project's #blockchain-powered #healthcare platform.
13/ 🔒 Popular #crypto hardware wallet @Trezor announced support for @StellarOrg [ $XLM ].

Firmware updates for Trezor One (1.7.1) & Trezor Model T (2.0.8) are needed first. Unknown whether or not #Trezor adds support for Stellar-based tokens (e.g., Diruna [DRA], Firefly [XCN]).
14/ 🎙️ @Elastos_Org's founder Rong Chen appeared on @CryptoCoinShow to chat w/ Ashton Addison (@SaintHoodSand) about the state of #Elastos' development.

Cheng tells the audience what to expect from the ambitious #crypto project moving into the new year.
15a/ 💸 Top-tier #crypto exchange @Coinbase announced a $300M funding round, bringing its post-money valuation to $8B.

Led by Tiger Global Management. Others investors include @YCombinator's Continuity fund, @a16z, Wellington Management, and @PolychainCap.
15b/ 🗣️ @AsiffHirji (President & COO, @Coinbase) appeared on @BloombergTV to elaborate on the Series E equity financing round.

No plans to #IPO any time soon. Will go public eventually, however. Revenue diversification a big priority heading into 2019.
16/ 🦘 A collective push by @TravelbyBit & @MICKYNewsOz (et al.) to get #WozInOz has gained some traction.

Having expressed a desire to travel to a country w/ no MoE other than #bitcoin, the @Apple & @EQUI_Global co-founder has received multiple invitations to visit Down Under.
17/ 🌐 @JulianWlsn (C/F & CTO, @CDx_Project) shared a post detailing some experimental techniques to create security in the Schelling game #crypto-economic 'primitive'.

Voting incentives as a way to create decentralized oracles. Thorough, insightful read!…
18a/ 📰 @ResearchCircle's @RiaBhutoria put together a terrific post detailing the highlights from what she calls "a *severely* underrated conference #Web3Summit."

Certainly worthwhile giving it a readover!…
18b/ 👀 ICYMI, there is also the below blog post from the @Web3Foundation themselves reflecting on its Berlin-hosted #W3S.
19/ 💪 @sassal0x updated his already-highly resourceful site, #BlockByBlock; a pillar of the #cryptocurrency community that has - and will continue to - inform(ed) untold amounts of people about the #crypto space.
20/ 🎊 The @ConsenSys-incubated @PegaSysEng announced their new open-source mainnet #Ethereum client, Pantheon Core.

This forms part of PegaSys’s mission of building enterprise-grade solutions in tandem with the Ethereum community.…
21/ 💤 #Blockchain tech startup @ParityTech teamed up with @ZcashFoundation to build the first alternative client for Zcash since @ZcashCo's zcashd, the only full-node software available for #Zcash [ $ZEC ].

Parity's new Zcash node will be written in @RustLang.
