Steven Victor got his shot in the music industry straight out of college as an intern at Interscope Records. After a few years of working for free, the soft-spoken Brooklyn strategist would begin climbing the corporate ladder, landing a full-time job in publicity and making inroads. Eventually he helped rap star Pusha T ink his solo deal with Kanye West’s GOOD Music. From there, he would run A&R for GOOD and eventually Def Jam before starting his own label, Victor Victor Worldwide. Since then, Victor has been accumulating platinum plaques and professional accolades at every turn.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s first ever lending facility backed by Bitcoin is the latest effort by crypto exchange Coinbase Global Inc. to bring money from the Wall Street to the digital-asset space.
“Coinbase’s work with Goldman is a first step in the recognition of crypto as collateral which deepens the bridge between the fiat and crypto economies,“ Brett Tejpaul, head of Coinbase Institutional, said in an email response. Coinbase did not provide further details about the loan. A spokeswoman from Goldman Sachs said last week the loan was collateralized by Bitcoin owned by the previously undisclosed borrower.
