AltcoinWeekly - Issue #110

Issue #110

4 - 10 January 2016 

This week, we feature an article from Brian Armstrong stating his opinions on the Bitcoin block size. I really hope that in the next couple of months, we can find a conclusion to this debate and increase the block size for Bitcoin to scale up. Also in the meantime, Cryptsy seems to be facing some difficulties so if you have funds there, you should be extra careful and start withdrawing wherever possible.
