Bitcoin surges past $14000 and touches a new record
Dash and bitcoin gold were pummeled the hardest, with each plunging more than 40 percent for the week. Transactions happen when heavily encrypted codes are passed across a computer network.

Whereas the one existing map, Erangel, has lush forests and lots of green, Miramar is quite different in terms of layout and design. It's called Miramar, and it was shown in motion for the first time Thursday night during The Game Awards.

Miramar is a larger desert area that's been teased for some time. The abandoned factory town of Chumacera looks to be an interesting location to visit, and the oceanside Valle del Mar (Valley of the Sea) will play an important role, connecting a prison island to the map's mainland. After a hectic year of development, and a record breaking influx of players, Battlegrounds' version 1.0 will, says Bluehole, arrive on PC on December 20th.

The company also debuted a trailer for the Xbox One version of the game, and confirmed that the game has reached over 24 million copies sold.
