  • Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency services in the world, has announced in a blog post that Jeff Horowitz, an ex-Pershing exec, has joined as company’s new Chief Compliance Officer. Horowitz has ample background experience for this position, as he was Managing Director and Global Head of Compliance for Pershing, a banking regulator for the FDIC, and even led compliance and anti-money-laundering (AML) programs at Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Salomon Brothers.
  • Leonardo Render, a cloud-based rendering software, will soon be disrupting the entire CGI animation industry.  Currently, even with a powerful supercomputer, it can take well over 24 hours to render a single frame from a film. But incorporating blockchain tech into this process can speed up the times needed. Leonardo Render accomplishes this by accessing GPU farms and using their processing power to render films and images on PCs.
