ICO predictions for 2018: Big changes for utility tokens

2017 was quite a banner year for the ICO marketplace with over $6.4 billion in crypto invested in hundreds of ICOs.

Chinese factories deploy AI to grow more than 6 billion roaches a year

In what sounds like the stuff nightmares are made of, a Chinese facility is breeding roaches by the billions for use in medicinal concoctions. These “healing potions” are reportedly use to cure respiratory, gastric, and other diseases according to an official report. As South China Morning Post reporter Stephen Chen tells it: Long, narrowly spaced rows of shelves fill a multi-storey building about the size of two sports fields. The shelves are lined with open containers of food and water. It is warm, humid and dark all year round, with freedom to roam to find food and reproduce. Fully sealed…
