This week has been busy in terms of cryptocurrency and blockchain, with many developments all around the world. First and foremost, the first cryptocurrency theft-related arrest just happened in Japan, which many believed to be the most powerful nation in Asia that actually embraces both blockchain and cryptocurrency. The individual that was arrested was 18, and had hacked hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cryptocurrency. Royal Dutch Shell, one of the most well-known oil and gas companies in the world, was also actively hiring blockchain analysts, although no more applications are welcome. For those who are wondering about how blockchain is being discussed in popular culture, Joseph Lubin is openly praising it at the influential South By Southwest (SXSW) conference. Also, the Winklevoss Twins, two of the most influential cryptocurrency proponents in the world, believe that the crypto winter will be good for the space in the long term.
