    Credit Agricole-Backed Fintech Startup in Insolvency Filing
    SETL, a London-based blockchain startup with a former Bank of France governor on its board and Credit Agricole SA among its investors, appointed administrators to reorganize the business. A corporate insolvency notice for the company was filed in the London Gazette on Thursday, less than two months after it announced the appointment of former French central bank chief Christian Noyer to the board. SETL was founded in 2015 to bring to the financial-services industry a form of blockchain technology, the ledger tool that was first created to facilitate Bitcoin transactions.
    Quantuma LLP was chosen as administrator to help the company “move forward with the next phase of its corporate development plan,’’ SETL said in a statement.

    President Donald Trump is pushing for U.S. negotiators to close a trade deal with China soon, concerned that he needs a big win on the international stage -- and the stock market bump that would come with it -- in advance of his re-election campaign. As trade talks with China advance, Trump has noticed the market gains that followed each sign of progress and expressed concern that the lack an agreement could drag down stocks, according to people familiar with the matter. He watched U.S. and Asian equities rise on his decision to delay an increase in tariffs on Chinese goods scheduled for March 1, one of the people said.

    Facebook refocuses around privacy

    The future of Facebook will be focused on private, ephemeral and encrypted communication, Mark Zuckerberg said in a 3,200-word blog post. The social network's CEO announced the company would rebuild many of its products as more users prefer interacting in intimate groups, instead of in "the digital equivalent of a town square."

    More:

    “Frankly, we don’t currently have a strong reputation for building privacy…but we’ve repeatedly shown that we can evolve to build the services that people really want,” Zuckerberg said.
    He added Facebook’s move to encrypted messaging could be safer for government dissidents and others with controversial views.

    “Of course, this would be opt-in and you will be able to keep your accounts separate if you’d like,” Zuckerberg wrote.

    Nate Raymond

    1 Min Read

    Bank of New York Mellon has agreed to continue providing fee concessions worth more than $35 million to resolve a class action lawsuit accusing it of imprudently investing thousands of trusts’ assets and charging them unauthorized fees.

    The proposed settlement was disclosed in papers filed on Sunday in federal court in Boston and would resolve a 2015 lawsuit claiming the New York-based bank breached the duties it owed to trust beneficiaries.

    North Korea denies Trump's account

    At a rare news conference in Hanoi, a senior North Korean official sought to set the record straight about the collapse of Trump’s two-day summit with Kim Jong Un. Foreign Affairs Minister Ri Yong Ho contradicted Trump's account, saying the country actually offered steps to partial denuclearization in exchange for relief of only some U.S. sanctions.

    More:
    Trump said he decided to take a "friendly walk" away from the summit without a deal because North Korea insisted on the removal of all sanctions before it would dismantle nuclear facilities.
    He also said he took Kim "at his word" that he wasn't aware of the imprisonment and torture of U.S. student Otto Warmbier, who later died.
    A North Korean official said it was Kim who may have “lost the will” to reach an agreement.
