Why Amazon’s Move Into Food Delivery Could Get Tripped Up by Facebook’s WhatsApp Buy Inc.’s bid to buy into one of the U.K.’s most successful startups may get caught up in antitrust authorities’ fear that they made mistakes in the past. The Competition and Markets Authority has until Wednesday to decide whether to continue a two-month-old probe that froze Amazon’s bid of around $500 million for a minority stake in food-delivery service Deliveroo. “The CMA is very interested in tech giants extending their tentacles into other markets,” said Alan Davis, a competition lawyer at Pinsent Masons in London. Antitrust regulators “are paranoid about it at the moment because they are concerned they have not looked at these mergers enough in the past, like Facebook-WhatsApp.” Authorities were put off over Facebook Inc.’s change of position on how it handled data from WhatsApp, prompting EU officials to accuse the company of misleading them to win approval for the takeover in 2014. Big Tech is a flash point now for antitrust across the globe. In the U.S., there are probes into Google, Facebook and Amazon over allegations they unfairly hinder competition. The CMA is investigating how Google plans to use Looker Data Sciences Inc. data before approving that $2.6 billion takeover. While the CMA’s mission is in part to ensure big deals won’t hamper competition, it doesn’t usually investigate bids for minority stakes. It may have been moved to act this time because of Amazon’s access to an unending reservoir of data from its many businesses. And CMA’s Chief Executive Officer Andrea Coscelli has said that it was a mistake to allow deals like Facebook’s purchase of Instagram. “U.K. regulators may have some antitrust concerns with the proposed investment,” said Bloomberg Intelligence analysts Aitor Ortiz and Diana Gomes. “One of them could be whether Amazon could get access to Deliveroo’s user data, leveraging the delivery giant’s position in other markets besides on-demand restaurant delivery, such as online groceries.” Amazon, Deliveroo and the CMA declined to comment on the matter. Cut-Throat Competition The food-delivery business is no stranger to the regulator’s attention. Two years ago the agency began investigating Just Eat Plc’s merger with a smaller rival Hungryhouse, eventually allowing it to go through because of the competition in the sector. Since then the delivery business has seen a wave of acquisitions and international expansion. Just Eat agreed to a 5 billion-pound merger ($6.6 billion) with Dutch firm NV in July, while Uber Technologies Inc. was reported to be showing interest in Spanish startup Glovo. However, according to food-service consultant Peter Backman, competition in the sector remains strong. “It’s getting more intense because the pressure to get scale is becoming more intense,” said Backman, a former director of Horizons FS. “Although the market has gotten bigger, they are under huge pressure to become profitable.” Deliveroo has never turned a profit, losing 232 million pounds last year despite a 72% increase in global sales. A ruling against Amazon would be a setback for the U.K. company, which has already raised $1.53 billion in investor funding. In August, it was forced to make an abrupt retreat from Germany after struggling to get a grip on the market. For Amazon, the stakes aren’t as high, but if the CMA decision goes the wrong way, it faces yet another embarrassing exit from a market it has found difficult to crack. It closed its own U.K. food delivery unit Amazon Restaurants U.K. in December 2018, with its American counterpart following suite last summer.

Buy Presents or a Christmas Trip Using Gift Cards Purchased With Crypto

Gift cards have become a popular payment tool for cryptocurrency users. Plenty of platforms now offer a wide variety of cards which can be purchased with your digital coins. You can use them to buy just about any product or service from major and small retailers, order food and drinks, or book a flight. And with the Christmas holidays approaching, don’t forget their main purpose is to make someone else happy. Also read: These Debit Cards Will Help You Spend Your BCH Anywhere Why It Works For various reasons, crypto enthusiasts in many countries find it hard to obtain a crypto debit card these days. They used to be a sought after payment instrument that expanded the use of decentralized digital currencies in a fiat-dominated world. However, many early offerings have disappeared and while there are new products in the niche, these now often come with more and more strings attached. Although limited to a specific retailer, crypto gift cards are much easier to acquire in comparison to debit cards. Bridging the gap between the crypto space and the traditional payments universe is undoubtedly an attractive business opportunity for many companies in the digital asset industry. At the same time, retailers that are still uneasy about adding cryptocurrencies to their payment options get additional revenue that would otherwise go somewhere else. Many people who run businesses or are employed in the crypto sector would prefer to spend the cryptocurrency they earned rather than convert it to fiat first. Buy Gift Cards With Bitcoin Sending some satoshis to someone you like or love is of course a great gift for any occasion. But money is such a common present that it betrays you might not have a clear idea of what the person you’d like to surprise really likes or wants. If you do know that, however, sending a gift card is a better option. Being able to buy it with cryptocurrency is great too. The store offers you a wide choice of gift cards for major retailers and service providers, from the Home Depot and Macy’s, to Domino’s and Dunkin Donuts, even Uber. These and dozens of other options are sorted in multiple categories, from Electronics, Clothing and Restaurants, to Holiday Gift Ideas. You can buy a card for yourself or send it to a friend. At checkout you’ll be prompted to pay with either bitcoin cash (BCH) or bitcoin core (BTC). Another platform that lets you buy gift cards with bitcoin is Egifter. You can order cards from over 250 retailers. Both BCH and BTC are supported, along with several other cryptocurrencies like ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC) and dash, as well as numerous fiat options like major bank cards and popular payment processors such as Paypal, Skrill, Apple Pay, and Amazon Pay. Those who have an account with Egifter can earn points on most purchases and later claim them for free gift cards. A website called not only sells but also buys gift cards with cryptocurrency. It accepts and pays in BCH, BTC and BSV. The cards you can order are issued by Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, Starbucks, Uber, and iTunes. They are fully returnable until the recipient logs in to claim them. If you receive a gift card that you don’t really need, you can sell it back to the platform for crypto but a restocking fee may apply. Swych, a mobile gifting platform in the U.S., entered the crypto market earlier this year. In February, Swych announced it’s starting to accept cryptocurrencies for the virtual gift cards it issues for more than 600 retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and many more. In the app, which is available for Android and iOS devices, you can pay with BCH, BTC, LTC, ETH, and ETC, as reported. If you receive one of Swych’s virtual cards but you don’t want to spend the money in that particular store, a nice feature allows you to swap it for a card you can use with a different retailer. If you need another mobile service accepting cryptocurrencies for a variety gift cards, you can check out Gyft. The app can be downloaded from Google Play and Apple’s App Store. “Use Bitcoin to shop for hundreds of gift cards. Instant delivery. No fees,” the platform promises. You can use it to buy, send and redeem gift cards from any mobile device. Gyft also lets you keep track of your gift card balances and currently accepts bitcoin core. Walmart, Lowe’s, Cabelas, and CVS are among the supported retailers. You can also purchase gift cards using dozens of decentralized cryptocurrencies and stablecoins from the payments provider Bidali which is based in Canada. According to the dedicated page on its website, bitcoin cash and bitcoin core are among the supported cryptos. It also lists many well-known places where you can spend your digital money via gift card. The platform accepts coins for mobile top-ups as well. Bitrefill sells gift cards from around the world for crypto. Its website detects your location and tailors its suggestions to your region. You can, for instance, list the most popular gift cards in the Eurozone countries. If users in the U.S. often buy cards for Google Play and the App Store, those in Europe’s single currency area would purchase cards for Skype, Viber, and Bitrefill offers prepaid mobile phone refills too, for which it accepts bitcoin core, ethereum, litecoin, dash, and dogecoin. If you are planning to travel for the upcoming Christmas holidays, several gift card platforms like Gyft, Egifter and Giftoff will offer you the opportunity to pay for services provided by airlines like Delta, Southwest, American Airlines, and Virgin. Using gift cards purchased with bitcoin to cover accommodations is not a problem either.

Meet Steve Cohen, the hedge-fund billionaire who is in talks to buy the Mets for $2.6 billion and owns mansions across some of America's swankiest ZIP codes

Billionaire hedgefund manager Steve Cohen is in talks to buy an 80% share of the New York Mets for $2.6 billion, Markets Insider reported. Cohen was banned from investing between 2016 and 2019 following a lawsuit with the SEC, Bloomberg reported. Cohen has a large portfolio of luxury real estate that spans from the Hamptons and to Connecticut to Los Angeles. He has a net worth of $9.22 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Billionaire hedge-fund manager Steve Cohen is reportedly in talks to add the New York Mets to his already impressive portfolio of luxury real estate and modern art. Cohen first invested $20 million in the Mets in 2012, Bloomberg reported. That investment paid off. Bloomberg valued Cohen's stake at $90 million in 2017 — a 350% increase in 5 years.  It hasn't always been smooth sailing for Cohen, however. His hedge fund pled guilty to securities and wire fraud in 2013, and Cohen himself was banned from investing for two years following a lawsuit with the SEC, Bloomberg reported. A representative for Cohen declined Business Insider's request for comment on Cohen's career, assets, or the Mets acquisition.  Keep reading to learn more about Steve Cohen.SEE ALSO: White Claw billionaire Anthony von Mandl got his start selling wine out of his car.

DON'T MISS: Tesla's Cybertruck fiasco cost Elon Musk $768 million in a single day — here's how the notorious workaholic and father of 5 makes and spends his $23.6 billion fortune Steven A. Cohen, 63, is a New York native. The son of a piano teacher and a garment manufacturer, Cohen was born in Great Neck, New York in 1956, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Cohen earned a Bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business, according to Forbes. Cohen built his $9.22 billion fortune running hedge fund Point72 Asset Management. Based in Stamford, Connecticut, the hedge fund now has over $14 billion under management according to Bloomberg. Cohen founded the firm, then called SAC Capital, in 1992. Forbes ranked Cohen as the eighth highest-earning hedge fund manager in the United States in 2018, but did not include him on the list in 2019. Cohen may not have made his fortune legally. His firm pled guilty to securities and wire fraud in 2013. SAC Capital paid $1.8 billion in fines, according to Bloomberg. A separate lawsuit brought by the SEC in 2016 resulted in Cohen being banned from managing others' money for two years, according to Refinery29. The firm was renamed Point72 Asset Management when it reopened in 2018, according to Bloomberg. The case didn't seem to phase Cohen, who threw a house party in the Hamptons two days after the charges were announced. The event, which Reuters described as "lavish," was attended by dozens of guests. The party was planned before the charges were announced to "show support" for ovarian cancer research, but not raise funds for the cause. Sources told Reuters that $2,000 worth of tuna was ordered for the event.  Cohen was also accused of financial wrongdoing during his first divorce. Cohen's ex-wife Patricia Finke accused him in 2009 of hiding assets from her during their 1990 divorce, therefore limiting her settlement, according to Bloomberg. Finke sued Cohen in federal court, but the case was later dismissed. Finke is appealing the dismissal, Bloomberg reported. Cohen remarried in 1992 to Alexandra Garcia. The couple met through a dating service and now have seven children, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The family lives on a 14-acre estate in Greenwich, Connecticut. The 35,000-square-foot house is worth more than $14.8 million, Business Insider previously reported. The estate and Cohen's other personal assets, not including his art collection, are worth an estimated $400 million, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Cohen has a vacation estate in East Hampton, New York. Located on Further Lane, the home has 10 bedrooms and spans 9,000 square feet, according to Reuters.  Jerry Seinfeld has a home on the same street, Business Insider previously reported. He has yet another mansion in Beverly Hills, California. The $35 million manison has 12,664 square feet, nine bedrooms, and 13 bathrooms and was once owned by actor Glenn Ford, Business Insider's Stephanie Yang reported. Cohen also owns two apartments in Manhattan's West Village, one worth $23.4 million and the other worth $38.4 million, according to Business Insider. Cohen also owned a triplex in the West Village, which he sold for $30 million in May. The condo, which is in the Abingdon, a luxe condominium building in the West Village, was nicknamed the "Abingdon Mansion," Business Insider's Katie Warren reported. It sold after just 32 days on the market, according to Christie's International Real Estate, which represented the sale. He bought the home for $23.4 million in 2013. The unit features a white Carrara marble staircase with wrought-iron railings, oversized picture windows, multiple gallery walls designed to display Cohen's art collection, a dramatic black-and-white chef's kitchen with a separate butler's pantry, and a large private gym. Cohen collects modern art. Cohen owns impressionist paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, and contemporary pieces by Jeff Koons and Gerhard Richter, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. There is also an $8 million 14-foot shark preserved in formaldehyde designed by Damien Hirst in the collection, Business Insider previously reported. Cohen also once owned an Andy Warhol portrait of former Chinese leader Mao Zedong, which he sold at auction for $47.5 million in 2015, Bloomberg reported at the time. The collection was valued at $1 billion in 2015, sources told Bloomberg. Cohen's expensive taste does not end there. He reportedly spent $100,000 for Food Network star Guy Fieri to spend the day with him. Fieri was paid to give Cohen a dining experience similar to those portrayed on Fieri's show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," Page Six reported in 2013. The two reportedly became close friends afterward. A representative for Cohen denied the story to Page Six, but said the pair do know each other. A character in Showtime's drama "Billions" is partially based on Cohen. Cohen inspired the character Bobby Axelrod, according to Forbes. Played by Damian Lewis, Axelrod is a "brilliant manager of a hedge fund who can wield pop culture references as effectively as he can play the stock market," Refinery29's Elena Nicolaou wrote. Axelrod and Cohen share roots in New York's middle class and take similar plea deals after their firms face charges of insider trading, according to Refinery29.  He's also a long-time supporter of the Mets, but they aren't the first team Cohen has expressed interest in. Cohen first invested in the New York baseball team in 2012, buying a 4% stake for $20 million, according to Bloomberg. That investment paid off. Bloomberg valued Cohen's stake at $90 million in 2017 — a 350% increase in 5 years.  In the same year that Cohen first invested in the Mets, he, investment firm Guggenheim Partners, and basketball star Magic Johnson made an unsuccessful bid for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bloomberg reported. Now, Cohen is considering doubling down on his investment in the Mets. Cohen is in talks to buy an 80% share of the New York Mets for $2.6 billion, Markets Insider reported December 5.

How a misleading tweet drove Binance-listed Matic token tank by ~70%

Matic, a native token of blockchain scalability project Matic Network, plunged by around 70% within half an hour last night. Triggered by a misleading tweet from Samuel Gosling, founder of cryptocurrency evaluation platform Validity Crypto, Matic token dropped from $0.042 to $0.013 in under 35 minutes on Monday. Gosling tweeted that the Matic Network Foundation transferred around 1.50 billion Matic tokens (15% of the supply, worth about $67 million) in the past 50 days, adding that some of which seem to have been sent for liquidation at Binance. About two hours later, Gosling tweeted that he miscalculated the figures. “I just want to deeply apologize for providing an inaccurate claim, it turns out it was only 381,903,830 $MATIC (3% of the supply) that 'seems' has been liquidated.” Matic Network, in its blog post published Tuesday, said that Gosling’s first tweet “created the FUD” (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) among crypto Twitter and led to the price plunge. “We want to strongly state that the allegations of token movement from our Foundation account, made by a FUD account against Matic team are completely baseless,” it added. Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao also tweeted earlier today that the exchange is investigating the matter but it is “already clear that the MATIC team has nothing to do with it. A number of big traders panicked, causing a cycle.” Matic Network held its token sale via Binance Launchpad earlier this year and raised around $5 million. "Matic has been relatively illiquid, and Binance also allows users to margin trade the token. Both of these factors likely contributed to the sharp fall," said Larry Cermak, research director at The Block.

Crypto Exchange LedgerX Sends Its Co-Founders on Leave

Twitter rage expressed by CEO Paul Chou isn’t sitting well with the board of LedgerX. The cryptocurrency exchange’s board of directors send co-founder Juthica and Paul Chou on administrative leave. A new interim CEO The Chous’ leave became effective “immediately” and hired Larry E. Thompson as the interim CEO. The board did not reveal the reasons why the founders were removed from the company’s everyday operations. However, the news is being linked with the company’s tussle with the CFTC. In August this year, Paul Chou spoke about the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in great detail, narrating how the regulator had broken the law. In an expletive-filled rant, he talked about bias at the regulator’s end. During the same month, the company had prematurely announced the availability of cryptocurrency futures to US-based retail investors. It was competing with ICE-backed Company Bakkt to launch regulated futures in the US. The new CEO Thompson isn’t a Twitter-ranting founder, but an experienced Wall Street executive with over 30 years of an illustrious career under his belt. He was working at the vice-chairman of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. before joining Ledger. He will also work as the lead director of Ledger Holdings. LedgerX’s regulatory problems LedgerX is a US-based company providing clearinghouse and Bitcoin derivatives services. It provides a swap execution facility for institutional cryptocurrency traders who have at least $10 million in assets. Paul Chou and the company have not commented on the move yet. However, CoinDesk reported that they had talked to Juthica Chou on email. She noted that the “board composition is tricky” and no one knows about derivatives, Bitcoin and computer science. She added that disagreements and conflicts with the board become difficult because of their lack of expertise in the field. However, she wished the new management well on her and Paul’s behalf. Some documents received by the publication reveal that the company’s leadership didn’t believe in fair practices at the regulator. They thought that Christopher Giancarlo, the former chairman of CFTC held “personal animus” towards the company because of Paul Chou’s comments.
