MMX VIII : Cross-Word.



Across:

1. Despite being the developer of X, AlexĂ©y Pajitnov did not receive royalties from his creation, as rights were owned by his employer, the Soviet government, which distributed it throughout the USSR and Eastern Europe. He only started to get royalties from his creation in 1996 when he and Henk Rogers formed The X Company.(6)


2.   Derived from the use of an ornamental carving, usually of a human, on the bow of a ship.
A combination of the Latin for form or shape, and the Old English for top of the body it also denotes a person who leads a team but has no authority or responsibility
What? (10)

3.  On January 24, 2011 Constable Michael Sanguinetti said: "women should avoid dressing like X's in order not to be victimized." Sonya Barnett and Heather Jarvis were outraged and started  the XY movement as a response. On April 3, 2011, over 3,000 gathered at  Queens Park in Toronto for  the first every XY. The day began with speeches before marching to the Toronto Police Headquarters. The idea has spread to  major cities worldwide. Which movement? (9).

4.    X is a digital currency created by Satoshi Nakamoto. Digitally signed  transactions are broadcast to all nodes in a  p2p network. People have a X wallet stored on their computer or hosted on a website. X has no centralized issuing authority. There is a controlled expansion of the monetary base hardcoded in the Bitcoin software. As of may 2011 the exhange rate was 30 USD for 1 X. ID X.(7).
