This news of Bitcoin's increase is interesting as a hedge fund billionaire, Ken Griffin, mocked Bitcoin and stated that even some of his employees didn't even want to invest in the risky asset. "I have a hard time finding myself wanting to be in in the position of being a liquidity provider to a product that I don't believe in," said Griffin when asked further.

On a positive note for Bitcoin, MasterCard recently picked up a ground breaking patent (which should be publicly available as open source) that will allow Bitcoin transaction to be recorded on credit cards. With this feature it could significantly increase adoption, especially for MasterCard holders of debit cards, gift cards, and credit cards. This would also enable businesses to be able to accept Bitcoin through MasterCard as the medium with instant transfers, which will considerably change the game for Bitcoin! The prospects of what could be done are important but we'll see how liberally we can act under MasterCard's guidelines.

US Airstrike Near Abu Kamal, Estimated Over 30 Civilians Killed

US Airstrikes occurred late midnight (GMT +3) on Friday, near Abu Kamal in the Deir ez-Zor province. Syrian state media, SANA, estimates 30 civilians, women and children, have been killed, while US sources, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, suggests roughly 54 people were killed in general (including civilians and militants), no official number of wounded.

Local reports suggest the US had deliberately struck the region, as everyone slept, under false pretenses. Many people around the struck towns of al-Souseh an al-Baghouz Fowqani, and around Abu Kamal believe the US purposely bombed the region over its decision to refuse the entry of US backed military personnel, such as the Qasad militia (which is to have suspected members of ISIS). Throughout the civil war, the US has been accused of supporting ISIS militants, through untrustworthy deals with certain rebel groups on the ground. The region that was struck by the United States is currently controlled by the Syrian national government, although, US media claims the region is controlled by Daesh (ISIS) operatives.

The war in Syria has taken a large toll on the citizenry, and it may finally come to an end, as US backed militias are threatening to dissolve and rejoin the Syrian National government, which may be a big loss for US interest in Syria after supporting the civil war. The rebels, who are threatening to dissolve, currently hold roughly 30% of Syria's territory. The Syrian government is currently winning the conflict against the rebels, and ISIS, as it holds more strategic, populated areas. If the Syrians do end their civil war, then ISIS will be all but eradicated from Syria, guaranteed. We have yet to see a formal peace deal between the Syrian Rebels and the Syrian national government.
