Kodak shares spike 200%. Is it the announcement of the new Ektachrome? No it is Kodakcoin the new cryptocurrency that allows photographers to track illicit use of their work on the internet. My only regret is that I didn't buy Kodak when it was under $3.00 a share. Oh, why didn't I have faith in big yellow.

I hope Kodak uses this new found wealth to develop new film stocks.

Learning that Kodak came up with their own cryptocurrency made me worried about the fate of cryptocurrencies. Kidding aside, I'm glad for them. I hope something good comes out of this for the company.

The scanner looks like a rebrand of something off allibaba or some chinese manufacturer. Theres an interesting article in the ny times on kodaks bitcoin, they actually are just rebranding someone else's technology. come on kodak, do something original, like your own an super 8/8mm scanner.

Since the only original thing they've done recently seems to be the Super 8 camera and even that is based on another company's work, I don't think we'll be seeing "original" things from Kodak. But that's ok as long as they bring back things they've already done. Ektachrome is great, just give me 16mm and I'll be happy.

Their whole strategy has been to license the Kodak name out and make as much money as possible from existing intellectual property...they just don't have the resources they used to in creating new things.
