    PHILADELPHIA ― As he prepares for the post-Senate phase of his life, Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is more certain of what doesn’t come next than what does. He won’t be a lobbyist. “I’d rather be taken to Singapore and caned,” he told The Huffington Post. “I actually feel that w...

  • "Ethereum Classic," Another Bitcoin Scam 25 Jul '16, 12am

    Ethereum Classic is, in my view, a total and absolute scam by any traditional financial definition of the word "scam." It doesn't have the support of the Ethereum developers, nor of Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, making it vaporware and an altcoin created in protest of Ethereum's h...
