◤WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT
In Chikun News: Litecoin is giving this bear trend a run for its money. No one really knows why Litecoin jumped nearly 20%. It could be people converting their Bitcoin due to uncertainty. It could be due to Charlie Lee doing things on his trip to China and various upcoming development updates. Or it could be due to the alignment of stars and the retrogradation of Mercury.
In Adoption: Bitwage officially launches UK Bitcoin payroll services.
Regulation Station: Delaware has passed amendments to state law that make explicit the right to trade stocks on a blockchain (for the international folks, Delaware is a US State, not some hardware ICO).

◤THINGS I LIKE
Nick Johnson's proposal for a new token sale smart contract.
A few people asked me how I come up with the market sentiment. I answered @notsofast on Twitter so I thought it would be helpful to share this with you too.
I look at TA trends (volume, MACD, RSI, chart patterns, pivot points, highs/lows)
I check Twitter, Slack, Discord, Reddit, news sites, and blogs for crowd sentiment.
I ask the question, how easy is for the market to go down and compare it to how difficult it is for the market to go up.
Lastly I use my overall gut feeling (which is super subjective).
