The Top Cryptocurrency Stories for Oct. 3

  • The Wall Street Journal launched a test to learn more about the cryptocurrency industry. It created “WSJCoin,” a virtual token for the newspaper industry. There weren’t too many details in the Oct. 3 WSJ report about the token, but creating the coin was easy.
  • Is Ethereum trading for a discount right now? According to a few analysts, it is. Each month, Finder.com asks a group of cryptocurrency experts for price predictions. Three of those individuals believe the price of Ethereum will reach at least $1,000 by Dec. 31, 2019. From today’s price of $220.05, that’s a potential return of 354%.
  • Finally, cryptocurrency and blockchain start-ups are seeing a renewed interest from venture capitalists. Through the first three quarters of the year, these start-ups have raised roughly $3.9 billion. That’s up 280% compared to all of 2017, according to CoinDesk.com.
