    Big bucks. Ripple is the world's second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap (after Bitcoin) and Ripple cofounder and CEO Chris Larsen just became the world's fifth wealthiest person.

    Is cryptocurrency mining pushing up oil prices?.....


    Bitcoin: A new Morgan Stanley research note sums up the power demand associated with cryptocurrencies. Via Bloomberg:
    "Miners of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies could require up to 140 terawatt-hours of electricity in 2018, about 0.6 percent of the global total, Morgan Stanley analysts led by Nicholas Ashworth wrote in a note Wednesday. That’s more than expected power demand from electric vehicles in 2025."
    Oil markets: The Wall Street Journal looks at bullish forecasts. "Oil prices have been grinding higher and higher, spurring forecasters to predict they could hit $80 a barrel this year," they write.
