    The article does not mention Ohtani but does mention Naomi Osaka.

    Ohtani was mentioned in several other articles about the lawsuit. The NY Post omitted his name for some reason.

    Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of failed crypto exchange FTX, was arrested in the Bahamas on Monday after US prosecutors filed criminal charges against him.

    It is amazing that this can still happen after folks have been burnt before. Regulation and reform is long overdue in the space.

    Agree or not (I think he is too dismissive of crypto in general), this was a great speech. I had to look up his background--he has a degree in Economics fro UVA, greaet school/program. He ain't just a talking head.

    The FBI says this Bulgarian ‘Cryptoqueen’ scammed investors out of $4 billion. Then she boarded a plane in 2017 and disappeared.

    And of course, I lost my stomach for crypto and pulled out at a small loss rather than stick it out for the rebound. This sort of high risk investing is just not for me, I guess. I didn't have the patience to wait for gains.
