In what seems like a never ending stream of bad news for cryptos coming out of China, a new statement condemning cryptos within the Chinese financial system has been issued by a leading PBOC think tank. With ICOs being banned, crypto exchanges being shut down, and rumors of putting up the “Great Firewall” against foreign exchanges, markets have been getting hit with their fair share of negative news coming out of China.
Hurricane Harvey pummelled the State of Texas and the Gulf Coast, causing massive damage and displacing hundreds of thousands. It will undoubtedly go down as one of the worst hurricanes to hit the United States in decades. Danny Sessoms, host of a cryptocurrency-themed radio show based in Austin, teamed up with Unsung.org to hold a fundraiser for the Hurricane Harvey victims.
In a move that sent shocks through the crypto community in China, and sent the NEO price spiraling, Red Pulse (RPX) announced that they would be blacklisting Chinese citizens from participating in their upcoming ICO. The Chinese government has issued a new set of guidelines to crack down on illegal fundraising. This is meant in part to tackle the shadow banking sector and pyramid selling schemes, but it has also mentioned that virtual currency based funding would be a target for investigation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
