Editor’s note (9/6/18 at 6:10 PM ET): According to one source on Twitter and an article article citing it published by CNBC, Martin Chavez, the CTO of Goldman Sachs, denied the business insider report, calling it “fake news” at Tech Crunch.
That’s according to a Business Insider report published Wednesday.
Goldman hasn’t confirmed the report, but the news still sent the value of bitcoin plummeting.
According to Business Insider’s sources, Goldman Sachs had hoped that by now the government would have established regulations to protect banks from some of the risks associated with trading crypto.
If the report is to be believed, Goldman Sachs isn’t giving up on crypto forever — it’s simply moving a trading platform down its list of priorities.
If regulatory waters calm, the bank could jump back on the bitcoin bandwagon, and given the U.S. government’s increased interest in crypto, the wait might not be all that long.
Pinzon's flannel sheets are made from 100% velvety soft cotton in Portugal and, with a weight of 190 grams per square meter, feel substantially heavier than most other options.
Named second on our list of the best flannel sheets you can buy and first in the New York Times' The Wirecutter, L.L. Bean's iconic Ultrasoft Comfort Flannel sheets are a perfect blend of plush softness, warmth, durability, and an accessible price point.
Made of 100% brushed cotton flannel with a weight of five ounces per square yard, they're heavenly soft but still lightweight enough to sustain a year-round use (though you're probably not going to find yourself reaching for them in the dead heat of August).
If you're willing to pay for it, L.L. Bean's Premium Supima Flannel Sheets ($189) are almost twice the price of the Ultrasoft, but they're also probably the softest set you're likely to get - thicker and softer than the Ultrasoft and slightly more substantial feeling.
