Earlier today, on November 12, the market cap of Bitcoin Cash broke the $30 billion mark, officially surpassing that of Ethereum.
LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach
With Jones out, the Volunteers join the Florida Gators and Ole Miss Rebels as SEC teams searching for a new head coach. As bad as the season has gone, UT still has a slim chance at bowl eligibility; it must win both its remaining games.

Bitcoin cash was trading in the range of $336 to $635, but since Friday Bitcoin cash prices rose to the all-time high of $2422 and now are trading at $1829.
