        I can't stand it, though it's a lot better than it was immediately after the redesign. At least they've got rid of the silly gradients, sliding panels and parallax scrolling columns. But it's still a mess with stories repeated at several different places on the page and no real structure. And don't get me started on what happens when you click into a story and foolishly scroll too far, losing the URL in the process.

          What GY said.

          The gradient/parallax version was an object lesson in bad design.

          Of course, that may have been the idea, as the business model is to drive people to hire terminals.

            I haven't seen the earlier version. It's mostly the colour scheme and typeface I find appealing. Although I've just noticed the keep-scrolling-and-we'll-load-another-article and I really don't like that. I prefer my webpages to have an end.

              II'm shocked, shocked I tell you!
              Cold wallets that were supposed to hold up to $180 million of Quadriga clients' money have been empty since last April, according to blockchain experts at court-appointed monitor Ernst and Young.

              ...



              The report also revealed that 14 user accounts "may have been created outside the normal process by Quadriga... It appears that the Identified Accounts were created under various aliases."

              "The Monitor was further advised that deposits into certain of the Identified Accounts may have been artificially created and subsequently used for trading on the Quadriga Platform," the report said.

              The report said those 14 accounts were associated with "a significant volume of transaction activity, including trading and withdrawals of cryptocurrency to wallet addresses not associated with Quadriga."

                    On blockchain vs Bitcoin, I’d recommend this book as readable and brilliant.

                    Written by my current boss (and friend) who I first worked for at Lehman’s, but I’m not the only person who thinks this is great. Witty and with a mildly leftist perspective.

                      Is she your boss on your main gig or is that one of your side hustles?

                      It is a rather interesting firm.

                        On my main gig. It’s a great book, read the reviews if you think I may be biased.

                          “Side hustles”? Moi?

                            Oui, toi.

                            I've read some of the portions available on Google Books. It is good.

                              FCA study on UK consumers and crypto

                              Gotta love this guy:
                              Kyle lives in Manchester where he is studying modern history with economics at university. Kyle “partied hard for a few years” but now runs the volleyball team and has stopped smoking cannabis, which has allowed him to have enough money to purchase cryptoassets. Before studying, Kyle worked as a broker in binary options. After graduating he hopes to work in either recruitment or sales.
                              Kyle dealt with cryptoassets when he was 16 to purchase illegal drugs online, but it was “only when I was 20 or 21 when I saw it as an investment”. Kyle bought £1,100 worth of Bitcoin, Ripple, Tron, Excelen, Appcoin and Elastos with his student loan in January 2018. His purchase was made “at the worst possible time” by his own admission, as the value of Bitcoin plummeted just a few weeks later.

                                      SEC publishes framework for assessing whether a token is a security.

                                      Also, a no-action letter saying TurnKey Jet's private token isn't a security. No, I haven't heard of them either.

                                        This is possibly the funniest crypto story I've ever read.
