Breaking Blake Kantor, who was charged by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission in April for running a fraudulent scheme involving binary options and cryptocurrencies, today pleaded guilty to obstructing the investigation into the case and will face up to 20 years in prison. Kantor and his company Blue Bit Banc (BBB) swindled approximately $1.5 million from more than 700 investors between 2014 and 2017 by selling them binary options and inviting them to transfer funds into a cryptocurrency known as ATM Coin, a worthless cryptocurrency, according to Federal prosecutors. 'Kantor defrauded investors to enrich himself and then tried to cover his tracks by lying to the federal agents investigating the scheme,' said U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue in a press release. 'We will continue to protect the integrity of the financial marketplace by prosecuting to the fullest extent those who deceive the investing public and obstruct the pursuit of justice.'

The recent selloff of the world's largest digital currency began last Wednesday when it broke crucial support at $6,000, and has fallen five of the past six trading sessions. Bitcoin is down 63.4% year-to-date and 75% since its alltime high.

I remember it was about three years ago, that I was looking for a way so that I could type and my understanding at the time was that it would be probably just like typing all other characters and the only problem would be to find that symbol typed somewhere and just copy it, but boy was I mistaken. After a few googles, I found out that there not only didn't exist any font faces that supported Bitcoin symbol, also there was no standardization among the community either, as many people would either just use BTX, or BTC to represent the currency, or would probably just prefer to use borrowed substitutes like ฿, or Ƀ. Today I received the news that has made the to open a tiny square on the huge unicode table for BTC symbol (hooooray!!). Now, people would probably have as what symbol, face or shape should be used to represent the character or is easier to write, that is not the problem anymore, because as long as they all point to the global standard U+20BF, anyone can use their own symbol to represent that character, and we would all be able to understand each other, thank you Unicode Consortium 😉. It should be noted that using this symbol, has a prerequisite, and that is a font, like, or, or any other unicode supporting font, that has a shape on the address U+20BF, or else you would not be able to see that character. There are currently only very few fonts that have support for BTC symbol. Is a BTC supporting font for example, but it seems that in Font Awesome, it is pointing to U+F15A which is probably not a universally agreed upon address.
