Articles under Crypto News (formerly “The Tape”) category are general cryptocurrency concepts, news, commentary, opinion and analysis. In short: everything that didn’t get placed anywhere else for one reason or another.
Tape readers were some of the earliest scientific speculators in New York’s stock markets. By reading the ticker tape immediately after it got out of the machine, they would try to identify patterns which they claimed helped them beat the market.
Crypto.BI Tape was initially meant as a real time cryptocurrency news and analysis service for traders (which is what we did back then), but was later converted into a more general and less time sensitive knowledge base.
Still, we kept the old name as a reminder of where it all started. Since the old news service wasn’t activated, The Tape ended up being a general category. Kinda like that messy drawer which ends up having a bit of everything in it.
