Full Image: "Last Jedi" Display Teases Dark Side Luke - flickr

A new cardboard display being used in theaters shows two Lukes: One light side, one dark side.

Since the movie is so close to coming out, I skipped watching the new trailer. But, my guess is that Disney is teasing us with a potential Dark Side Luke. :-)

"Blade Runner 2049" Box Office Disappoints

Article: What Happened to 'Blade Runner 2049'? - Hollywood Reporter

Article: 'Blade Runner 2049' Is A Box Office Bomb: 10 Reasons It Was Doomed - Forbes

"Blade Runner 2049" came in way low at the Domestic Box Office, pulling in only $32 million. The film has polarized audiences into those who thought it was "brilliant" and those like me who thought it was one of the worst sequels ever, and self indulgent to the point of narcissism.

I'm glad it's tanking. It deserves to.

Bitcoin Draws Japan and South Korea

Article: Bitcoin Bug Bites Japan and South Korea as China Clamps Down - New York Times

While China has cracked down on Bitcoin, Japan and South Korea are picking up the slack.

Bitcoin was thought to be created by someone from Japan, Satoshi Nakamoto. But, it has since been believed that was simply a moniker for the person or persons behind Bitcoin's creation. Also, the first exchange sprung from Japan. But, it was run by a Frenchman. Now, Japan is taking concrete steps in becoming more invested in Bitcoin. The nation has more exchanges popping up, and is proposing a Bitcoin competitor, J Coin.

Meanwhile, South Korea's Samsung is very interested in the software platform of Ethereum, while being less interested in Ethereum's currency, Ether.

Bitcoin ETF's on the Horizon

Article: Bitcoin ETFs on the Horizon - Barron's

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been hoping for the intersection of crypto and established investing for a while now. Exchange-traded fund provider REX is hoping to introduce two Bitcoin-based ETF's, which are Exchange-Traded Funds. Those are funds that trade on the stock market.

Naturally, the SEC, the Securities and Exchange Commission, would have to approve! But, the push to make it happen is there, so it is sounding like the possibility could become reality.

HIVE Becomes First Cryptocurrency Stock

Article: HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV:HIVE) (OTCMKTS:PRELF) Is One Of The Top Bitcoin Stocks Around - Insider Financial

Company Site: HIVE Blockchain Technologies - Main Site

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been wanting to know when there would be a stock market play for Bitcoin, Blockchain or mining. This week, it happened! HIVE Blockchain Technologies is now trading on the Canadian TSX Venture Exchange, and as an OTC stock on the U.S. market.

HIVE is buying mining time off of Genesis Mining, who is considered the leading cloud mining supplier. HIVE proposes to use their capital to do mining and produce income. It should be interesting to see how it all pans out.

Now, there has been Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC), which is traded on the OTC market. But, that is basically just a bunch of Bitcoin. You can directly buy Bitcoin on many well-regarded exchanges, making GBTC fairly redundant. HIVE is actually a company that is directly engaged in the Blockchain.

Now, folks, this is speculative stuff! It's up to you if you're going to spend money on this. But, I basically just took money generated from my bond funds and bought a smaller amount of the OTC. You can invest in the Canadian stock directly through certain brokerages. I have only dipped my toes into two OTC stocks ever. This one, and Tencent of China, who provides internet products, similar to those of Baidu, who are on the regular U.S. stock market.

Hans Zimmer Takes Over "Blade Runner 2049" Scoring

Article: Have we reached peak Hans Zimmer? - Guardian

Movie Site: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ - Warner Bros.

Jóhann Jóhannsson (or as I call him, Jo Jo) ;-) is out as composer of "Blade Runner 2049." In is the ever-reliable Hans Zimmer. But, Zimmer isn't being well-received as a replacement by all! There is a #StopHansZimmer hashtag running around. The article above goes into it.

Otherwise, I thought that Villeneuve used Jóhannsson as his regular composer. Apart from that, I have low confidence in this sequel being worth that much. The first film is perfect, and ends perfectly. Zero reason for a sequel. But, if the money potential is there, Hollywood's going to do it anyway! :-P And, where the heck is Vangelis? I know he hasn't done film composing for a while, but I hope that they at least TRIED to get him for this thing. We'll see what Zimmer does, but I'm not pre-ordering the soundtrack. :-)

JP Morgan Goes to War with Bitcoin

Article: Bitcoin is a fraud that will blow up, says JP Morgan boss - The Guardian

Article: Genesis Mining billboards say Jamie Dimon is right - 'Bitcoin will eat your lunch' - IBT

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon has gone to war with Bitcoin. In a set of angry remarks, Dimon said that Bitcoin is only good “If you were in Venezuela or Ecuador or North Korea or a bunch of parts like that, or if you were a drug dealer, a murderer, stuff like that, you are better off doing it in bitcoin than US dollars.”

Naturally, anyone whose fortunes are rooted in the traditional economy are going to be threatened by cryptocurrencies. It's just entertaining to watch someone so publicly lose their @#$% over it!

Entertainingly, Genesis Mining, who provides Bitcoin mining services, is having a lot of fun with Dimon, putting up billboards mocking him!
