Between the exciting news in WikiLeaks wear, playing whack-a-mole with trolls, and the ongoing saga in Ferguson, Missouri, it’s been a busy day chez Cryptosphere, and speaking of penniless hobos we got paid so we are off to drown our sorrows and our joys in some premium bourbon cocktails. Before we sign off for the day, however, we’ll give you the current prices for three of the biggest cryptocurrencies and one you probably never heard of: HoboNickels.
HoboNickels are named after a real phenomenon; in the Great Depression the hobo class included a number of highly talented, but unemployed, individuals. Some of them turned their talents into carving actual nickels into works of art, and thus the Hobo Nickel was born. Today’s version aims to be fast to mine ie cheap to produce, plentiful, and portable.
Prices as of 7:30pm Vancouver time:
Bitcoin: $535.29 and no bottom in sight. This thing just keeps going down.
Litecoin: $4.84 and accompanying Bitcoin over that cliff.
Dogecoin: $0.000140 happily gallivanting ahead on the path over that same cliff.
HoboNickels: $0.024224 having lost almost half its value in the last week. Nobody wants to invest in the homeless.
