Nationwide Building Society is a British mutual financial institution and the largest building society in the world with over 15 million members with headquarters in Swindon.

It was announced on the official website of Coinbase that they will no longer be accepting deposits from Nationwide Bank. That decision may be linked to Nationwide’s SEPA payment processing, which is maintained by Germany’s Commerzbank, which have been associated with a company's policy of refusing to deal with transactions related to Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

Earlier, Nationwide Bank’s correspondent bank for SEPA transfers Commerzbank has stated no longer allows transfers related to Bitcoin.

The Attorney General of New York State and the well-known opponent of the Trump Administration, Eric Schneiderman, left his, after The New Yorker reported that he was accused of attacking four women. This writes The New York Times.

It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York. In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.

Ex Attornet General, New York

As reported by The New Yorker, two women said that Schneiderman strangled and beat them from time to time; they had to seek medical help. The third alleged victim reported that he "released her cruel slaps." The fourth shared similar experiences.

All victims were with Schneiderman in a romantic relationship and said that he showed cruelty in their attitude without mutual consent.

In mid-April, Schneiderman sent inquiries to 13 exchanges of cryptocurrencies and asked them to fill out a questionnaire that required information on "operations, the use of trading bots, conflicts of interest, work stops and other key points."

Many exchanges supported the initiative of the prosecutor, and Coinbase even disclosed some of the information in public. At the same time, the Kraken exchange refused to respond to the request, arguing that it was unwilling to support inadequate regulation of the New York-based cryptocurrency area.
