Blockstream Goes To Space

I recently used Changelly and it was a great service. Where Shapeshift took 2-3 days and didn’t even complete a transaction, Changelly was done in about 2 hours round trip.

Adoption is not an issue. Richard Heart says he wants to increase adoption and market bitcoin with an ICO. He’d be better off buying bitcoin with that.
