Venmo is now offering an option to buy crypto directly within the app. Would this be a good way to purchase or am i better off opening an account with some other trading app?

Use an actual exchange( Coinbase, Binance, and Gemini are pretty reputable)

I would agree except binance is not reputable in my opinion. Also add blockfi because they offer interest on your crypto

Venmo and PayPal both use Coinbase as their crypto platform in the backend so they don’t really have their own platform.

Try with 50$ and report back. No harm being a first time user. Venmo’s reputation is golden so why doubt them? If you don’t like the service I’m sure you can provide feedback and regain your money or some makeup for it

Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles?

I’m still at my current company/role, I’m just not happy at all so looking to find something/someplace new.

Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise.

I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
