Initially, Kraken stated that a system upgrade would be performed on January 6 at approximately 22:00 UTC (2 pm PT).

Kraken services will be offline for about 2 hours during the upgrade, possibly longer. Withdrawals in all currencies will be offline for an additional 2-3 hours after other systems come online. If you submit a withdrawal request while withdrawals are offline, the withdrawal will be sent after withdrawals come online again.

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.
