Happy New Year 2014 to all…it’s been a great week.
1. As we write this post, the price of bitcoin has risen to USD 919 (MYR 3020) and it has broken the latest resistance around USD 876.
2. Our founder, Colbert Low has been featured on Wall Street Journal, The Malaysian Insider and Coindesk after the Malaysia Central Bank (Bank Negara Malaysia ) issued a short statement about Bitcoin. Please note that Bank Negara did not outlaw the usage of bitcoin, or state that bitcoin was illegal. So this will not hinder the usage or demand of bitcoin and other alt coins (Peercoin, Litecoin) in Malaysia.
3. We have also started a Group Buy #2 for Viper Scrypt 25Mhs Miner. (only 35 slots)
