06 October 2017   2065

A brand new altcoin called eBTC has increased in value 634% since it launched on Monday.

The concept of the cryptocurrency is quite curious: this is “a tokenized version of Bitcoin on the Ethereum Blockchain”, the developers team explain.

Thus, according to data on, eBTC launched with a value of around $0.03 per token, whereas at the time of writing had increased to $0.41 as exchange EtherDelta became involved in trading it (EBTC/ETH).

Yet, both volatility and overall reputability of the asset is rather conspicuous. eBTC still lacks even a whitepaper, and its technical applications remain quite vague.

Following the trial court of the city of Thessaloniki, the Greek Areopagus decided to extradite Alexander Vinnik, suspected of laundering $ 4 billion through the BTC-e cryptocurrency exchange, to France. Thus, the appeal of Russian lawyers was rejected, reports TASS referring to the chairman of the court Angelique Aliferopoul.

After the announcement of the verdict, Alexander Vinnik declared that he would continue the hunger strike against the arbitrary rule of the Greek authorities, which began in mid-November.

I have been starving for 24 days. Yesterday I was weighed; according to the documents, I lost 8 kg. But they did not immediately begin to weigh me, only on the third day. So I lost 9 kg. If I'll be extradited to Moscow, I will stop starving.
