    Why I Left Goldman Sachs and Wall Street Glory for Crypto

    Back in 2008, I had it all, first as a statistical arbitrage trader with Goldman Sachs and then as a senior trader at two of Asia’s top hedge funds, managing upwards of $1.5 billion. I traded equities, foreign exchange, equity derivatives and convertible bonds. I even started my own fund, which raised $20 million in assets in its first year.

The trend has led to disturbing scenes like those from 2014 protests against police shootings, in which peaceful protesters were confronted by law enforcement equipped with sophisticated military equipment.

    UK adults may soon have to buy "porn passes" from corner shops to prove their age online

    Later this year, new UK legislation will require visitors to adult websites to prove that they’re over the legal age of 18.
