Bitcoin Mining Giant Bitmain Reveals $500 Million Loss; End of the IPO Dream?

The world’s largest maker of cryptocurrency mining equipment Bitmain made a $0.5 billion loss in 2018’s Q3, CoinDesk reports. Citing a source who viewed an update that was filed with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange the publication also reported that Bitmain generated revenues of more than $3 billion during the first three quarters of 2018 with only $200 million being generated in Q3.

Bernie Sanders is Running for President. He’s the Only One Who Can Beat Trump

Bernie Sanders has officially launched his presidential campaign for 2020. The 77-year-old is now the Democratic front-runner and the only candidate who can realistically beat Donald Trump. Not only is he the most popular Senator in the country, but recent polls also show he would pip Donald Trump in a hypothetical election.  Beating Donald Trump is a huge motivator for Sanders’ 2020 run.

Did Pre-IPO Uber ‘Lose’ $1.8 Billion in 2018, Or Aggressively Invest In Its 85%...

Uber posted $1.8 billion in losses for 2018, an improvement over its 2017 bottom line, a loss of $2.2 billion. At The Drive Stephen Edelstein says, “That’s bad news for Uber as the company looks to charm investors into an initial public offering (IPO) later this year.” Maybe. But maybe not. Focusing on the high tech taxi company’s negative profits in 2018 might be missing the bigger picture of the value it represents over a bump in the road. It is an understatement to say Uber has no problem making money. The 2017 and 2018 “losses” aren’t because of bad

Bitcoin Cash Pools: The Majority of Bitcoin SV Blocks Are Mined By ‘Unknown’ [Yes,...

Like Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV has large mining pools, each with a significant share of its SHA-256 hashrate. However, unlike the others, BSV has a nearly 44% majority who are “unknown,” according to data published by Coin.Dance. Comparing the above to Bitcoin’s same period chart, about 500% of the blocks in Bitcoin SV are mined by “unknown” compared to Bitcoin.
