Beat the System: That Floyd Mayweather-backed cryptocurrency is another sign of a bubble bursting

If even Floyd Mayweather can’t turn a cryptocurrency launch into a knockout, is the party coming to an end?

The “initial currency offering” from Hubii, an online publishing venture, has fallen far short of its ambitions, despite a high-profile promotion last month by the boxing legend on Twitter.
