JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon is facing irony this week after calling Bitcoin a fraud - as the bank’s Swiss arm is sanctioned for fraud. Reports from local media outlet Die Handelszeitung relate how the Swiss regulator Finma had ruled JPMorgan was guilty of money laundering in June. A legal battle then ensued, with Dimon’s giant attempting to prevent the publication of Finma’s judgment. This month, however, the law ruled against it, but details of the extent of the wrongdoing remain sketchy.
Korean Hyosung, a multi-billion dollar conglomerate involved in ATM manufacturing has announced it will now offer Bitcoin buying support on its machines through a partnership with Just Cash. The Missouri-based mobile company, which offers mobile-based solutions for customers to obtain cash from ATMs, will now allow any Hyosung ATM client to access Bitcoin. While official statements are yet to appear regarding motivation for the move, the ATM compatibility upgrade is already available.
Russian Steemit rival Golos.io was unavailable for an entire week after a seeming error by internet censors. As local news media outlet vc.ru reports today, Golos, which allows users to earn money through tradable tokens for posting unique content, was out of reach of Russian users Nov. 10-17. The reason, it appears, was the publication of personal information without users’ consent, yet it remains to be seen whether or not this was true.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
