The largest ever survey of Bitcoin users in Australia has revealed where, when and why Australians are joining the cryptocurrency revolution.  The survey by Bitcoin.com.au, Australia’s #1 Bitcoin retail exchange, found — perhaps unsurprisingly — that the vast majority of Bitcoin users are male: 86% identified as male, while only 10% identified as female, with 4% choosing to remain anonymous.

Karate Kid Remake: YouTube Red announces Cobra Kai Spin-Off series

William Zabka

Epic adversaries return to the dojo in Cobra Kai, an all-new series that reteams Ralph Macchio and William Zabka in their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The 10-episode, half-hour series, coming to YouTube Red in 2018, reimagines one of Hollywood’s most popular tales of rivalry and redemption.

Thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, a down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi. The show is about two men addressing past demons and present frustrations the only way they know how: through karate.

Ralph_2930_Final_CropCobra Kai is written and executive produced by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg. Heald is the writer behind the cult classic Hot Tub Time Machine franchise, while Hurwitz & Schlossberg created the successful Harold & Kumar film series and wrote and directed the global hit American Reunion. Together, the trio conceived of this new Karate Kid storyline that picks-up decades after the original film ends. Hurwitz & Schlossberg will direct much of the series. James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett will executive produce for Overbrook Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television Studios.

“The minute I heard about this project, I knew we had to have it. The Karate Kid became an instant classic in the 1980s, and still resonates with audiences around the world and on YouTube today,” said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sony TV, Overbrook and the talented writing team led by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg to add a fresh, new comedic twist on one of Hollywood’s most storied rivalries.” Continue reading Karate Kid Remake: YouTube Red announces Cobra Kai Spin-Off series
