Interwebbed: Cyber and Crypto News for November 6

Happy Thursday, kittens! We at the Cryptosphere have some news for you (geddit?). We’ve just been accepted by Google News, so we’ll be playing with the Big Boys now and will be much, much less likely to have cause for butthurtness when, say, we’re the first North American outlet to cover a story and not one of the subsequent stories so much as refers to us. Oh, golly, we’re so over that!

You know what’s the best revenge, kittens? Links. Shit-tons of news links! We don’t remember who told us that but he sure talked like he knew a thing or two, and that’s good enough for us.

But then, we have low standards.
