r/bitcoin recap – October 2017

Hi Bitcoiners!

I’m back with the tenth monthly Bitcoin news recap. Last month I couldn’t post as I was travelling a lot and missed a few days of news. Normally seen that's not a problem, but Reddit decided to discontinue historical searches for specific timeframes. I know, I was sad too.

Anyways for those unfamiliar with the recaps, each day I pick out the most popular/relevant/interesting stories in r/bitcoin and save them. At the end of the month I release them in one batch, to give you a quick (but not necessarily the best) overview of what happened in bitcoin over the past month.

Now I know the price went absolutely 🥜 this month, but there’s a lot more going on in the space than that!
