According to Bloomberg, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman disagrees with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and does not believe bitcoin is a fraud.

According to Fast Company, millions of credit card numbers, which were apparently stolen from Sonic restaurants, are now available for sale on the dark web.
