Interview with Cédric O, Secretary of State for the French Digital Transition

In the context of the new regulations concerning the French crypto industry, we interviewed Cédric O, Secretary of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communications. How does he perceive blockchain technology and its development in France?

How do you perceive blockchain technology?

Our societies and our economies are subject to significant and sometimes contradictory trends. Firstly, by extremely intense technological competition, which sees the whole world engaged in a kind of „arms race“, where the outcome will determine a large part of the prosperity but also the independence of the world’s major economies, especially Europe. Blockchain technologies are part of these disruptive technologies, with considerable areas of applications, from financial matters to energy, from food processing to cultural and creative industries. This is why it is important for Bruno Le Maire and myself that France is at the forefront. But like any innovation, blockchain is a dialectic between innovation and regulation. Innovation is built and grows by breaking with existing frameworks. But in order to thrive, it needs trust, and therefore needs to be regulated. The blockchain is still in the chiaroscuro, and this dialectic can be observed everywhere in the world. The knife edge is even more complicated to find because the increasing complexity of the problems is a challenge on its own for the authorities. But I am optimistic.

This Wednesday, December 9, 2020, France has made a new clampdown regarding crypto assets. How do you justify this toughening?

Crypto assets expose us to increasing risks of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF). The dismantlement, last September, of a Daesh financing network combining crypto assets and electronic money transactions is a reminder of this reality. This is not a problem for France only: successive declarations by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the G7 and the G20 have also highlighted the increased risk of criminal misappropriation of crypto assets in the context of the health crisis and beyond. It is in this context that we have taken the ordinance of December 9, which was drawn up in consultation with the actors but also the national representative. The landing point strengthens controls, it’s true, but I would like to remind you that this measure will be completed in a decree that relaxes the conditions for using remote identification devices. The Ministry’s teams are in very regular contact with the ANSSI, the National Assembly and solution providers to ensure that [virtual asset service providers] VASPs will have services that meet their needs as early as this spring. We have therefore tried to find a balanced solution that meets both the security emergency and the operational concerns of the involved parties.wi

Europe is not yet in harmony on these policies; do you understand that some startups are seeking to delocalize to countries that are less restrictive towards crypto assets? And how do you intend to convince them to stay?

First of all, I would like to remind that France is far from being the only European Union country to have gone beyond the fifth anti-money laundering directive when it comes to cryptos. Quite the opposite. Germany and Great Britain have also decided to subject to the ML/TF the entities that offer crypto-crypto services. Denmark is also in the process of adopting such a regulation.

It seems to me that we need to take a holistic approach of the problem. I am the first, sometimes, to protest against the strict rules governing the exercise of financial activities in France. But I can’t help but notice that these rules are also what underpin the competitiveness of Paris, which is part of our country’s strength and at the same time allows us to stay ahead of Frankfurt when it comes to welcoming activities from London. This credibility is an advantage when it comes to creating very large international firms.

In addition, I would like to underline that all European players who wish to target the French market will be required to register with the AMF under the same conditions and deadlines as players established in France. This provision of the Pacte law, recalled by the ordinance of December 9, aims to restore similar competitive conditions on the French market for all companies. There is a strong awareness between Member States and the European Commission on the need to implement everywhere the same rules and procedures applicable to crypto industry. The Minister of Economy, Finance and Recovery will make concrete suggestions to the European Commission to extend the monitoring system established in France.

I would also like to mention that France is one of the rare countries to have a clear legal, fiscal and accounting framework for all the participants in the ecosystem. Furthermore, when possible, we have opted to implement optional measures, such as a visa for ICOs or approval for digital asset service providers. Only those who wish to do so can take the necessary steps. I also want to note that the ecosystem knows how to find high-quality contacts within the administration and supervisors (AMF and ACPR) who can support them in their projects. Finally, France has taken the lead in regulating these activities, which means that it is now influential in European discussions. There is a collective interest in French public authorities and private operators being able to be the driving force behind European regulations.

Bitcoin supera a Facebook, „tiene sentido“, dice Winklevoss

„Tiene sentido que una red de dinero sea más valiosa que una red social“, dijo Cameron Winklevoss en lo que debe ser un momento extraordinario para los gemelos.

Después de ganar $ 65 millones de demandar a Facebook, compraron $ 11 millones en bitcoins en 2013

Se rieron de ellos en ese entonces, pero el estimado de 100,000 bitcoins ahora vale más de $ 4 mil millones de dólares, ya que los gemelos se reivindican al final con bitcoin superando la capitalización de mercado de Facebook.

Capitalización de mercado de Bitcoin, enero de 2021

La capitalización de mercado de Facebook es actualmente de $ 765 mil millones, mientras que bitcoin ha aumentado a $ 768 mil millones con la red de dinero superando por primera vez a la red social.

Mark Zuckerberg, por su parte, ha estado tratando de involucrarse en las criptomonedas desde 2018 , presentando en 2020 una visión de una tienda en cada instagram que se puede realizar a través de criptomonedas.

Sin embargo, su proyecto Libra ha atraído un intenso escrutinio político, y no está claro si se permitirá su lanzamiento.

Los gemelos, por otro lado, se unieron a la multitud de bitcoins en lugar de intentar crear uno propio, y ahora, siete años después, ganaron más que una simple demanda.

Litecoin briefly trades places with XRP as the fourth largest krypton currency in the midst of a dispute between Ripple and the SEC

XRP’s fall from grace caused the asset to drop briefly to number five by market capitalization.

Litecoin (LTC) and XRP briefly traded places in market capitalization ratings over the weekend, highlighting the impact of the recent lawsuit against Ripple filed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The so-called „flippening“ occurred early Sunday morning when Litecoin’s market capitalization reached USD 9.95 billion after a price increase of more than 12%. Meanwhile, XRP had declined by more than 25% during a 24-hour trading period.


At the time of this publication, XRP was once again in fourth position with a market capitalization of $10.5 billion. Litecoin, meanwhile, was worth just over $9.9 billion. In the last seven days, Litecoin’s price has gained approximately 14%, while XRP has fallen almost 20%.

Litecoin’s price has more than doubled since mid-December, highlighting Bitcoin’s gravitational pull on the overall market. XRP was also falling before the SEC announced a lawsuit against Ripple for allegedly violating the securities laws. The price of XRP fell more than 73%, according to CoinMarketCap data.

The road to recovery for XRP is likely to be bumpy as investors await the outcome of litigation, a process that could take several years to unfold. Without an SEC settlement, XRP’s value could have difficulty regaining momentum. A wave of write-offs at major exchanges also threatens XRP’s potential rebound.

Meanwhile, the rise of Litecoin probably has more to do with Bitcoin Blueprint scam than any change in the project’s underlying fundamentals. Cointelegraph noted an apparent increase in the volume of altcoins in December when the price of Bitcoin exceeded $20,000.

The total market capitalization of all cryptcoins rose to record highs over the weekend, reaching a peak of around $907 billion.

Bitcoin (BTC) continues its ascent towards $ 35,000

On January 3, Bitcoin’s price hit a new all-time high.

Long-term and daily technical indicators remain bullish.

BTC is probably in wave 5 of a longer-term wave 3.

Bitcoin (BTC) hit a new all-time high (ATH) on January 3, this time rising to $ 34,778.

While the trend has yet to show any considerable weakness, BTC has already reached a crucial fibonacci extension level. This would suggest that he is approaching a cap, if he hasn’t already reached it.

Bitcoin’s weekly close

The week of December 28 to January 4, the price of BTC rose significantly, creating a bullish candlestick at the magnitude of 25%. On January 3, BTC then hit a new all-time high at $ 34,778.

Despite its massive rise and the seemingly parabolic rally, there are no clear signs of weaknesses in technical indicators yet. This suggests that the trend is still on the rise.

Likewise, the daily chart is not showing any clear signs of weakness despite the relatively long January 3 top wick, resembling a shooting star candlestick. In addition, it can be seen that the volume has not been particularly high in the past two days.

That said, there is no bearish divergence and both the RSI and MACD are still rising indicating that the price of BTC may continue to rise

The two hour chart is giving us the first signs of weakness, as the MACD has lost some of its strength, almost falling into negative territory. That said, the RSI has generated considerable hidden bullish divergence. This is normally considered to be a sign of continuity, after which one would expect another upward movement.

That said, there is no structure in place and no clear areas of support or resistance.

The wave count suggests that BTC is very close to peaking, or ceiling, if it hasn’t already.

BTC appears to be in wave 5 (blue below) of cyclical wave 3 (white).

The 3.61 fibonacci extension of Cyclic Wave 1 (blank) is $ 35,037 and suggests that the BTC has already reached its peak. The next size Fibonacci resistance zone would be at 4.61, at $ 43,755.

Using the fibonacci extension over the length of waves 1 to 3 (in blue), we get very similar goals of $ 34,187 (already achieved) and $ 43,532.

$ 50.000 per BTC “er et rimelig prismål selv for Q1 til Q2 neste år” – Nexo grunnlegger

Denne BTC-tyren er „fundamentalt mye mer lyd“ med alle fra detaljhandel, institusjonelle investorer, høyverdige enkeltpersoner og familiekontorer som kjøper Bitcoin.

Appetitten for Bitcoin blant institusjonelle investorer fortsetter å vokse i et raskt tempo.

Hver uke kunngjør et nytt selskap eller en offentlig person sin investering i Bitcoin Era eller de digitale eiendelenes potensial som en butikk av verdi, omtrent som gull.

Denne appetitten kan sees med Bitwices Crypto Index Fund – med 75% BTC, 13% Ethereum og 12% annen vekt på krypto eiendeler – som økte mer enn 70% i løpet av et par dager etter lanseringen, det også mens de digitale eiendelene gled med noen få prosent.

Men i løpet av helgen tok kryptomarkedet over da BTC gikk fra $ 17 600 tidligere i uken til $ 19 500 på søndag.

I dag handler BTC / USD rundt $ 19,150, ned 0,09% med 2,24 milliarder dollar i volum.

Til slutt Bullish

Likevel er den største kryptovalutaen opp 166% YTD, og ​​dette Bitcoin-rallyet er „grunnleggende lyd“, ifølge Antoni Trenchev, medstifter av Nexo.

I følge ham kommer eventuelle fall bare jul som kommer tidlig – „et flott inngangspunkt for deg å kjøpe litt Bitcoin like før avgang,“ sa Trenchev i et nylig intervju med Bloomberg.

Disse prisfallene er ifølge ham fortjenestemessige og ryktet om siste øyeblikk lovgivning fra Trump-administrasjonen, som ifølge ham bare vil være mer anti-hvitvasking og kunnskap-din-kunde-politikk „akkurat som i banksektoren. ”

Imidlertid vil den nye lovgivningen til slutt være et „veldig gyldig bro-bullish tegn for Bitcoin, og det vil sette scenen for neste etappe opp,“ sa han.

Den regulatoriske trusselen har tatt kanten av markedet, og Trenchev er ekstremt bullish på BTC-prisen.

Ikke i nærheten av toppen

I følge Trenchev forutslo han at en BTC-målpris på $ 50.000 innen utgangen av året “er et rimelig prismål selv for Q1 til Q2 neste år.”

Årsaken til hans bullishhet er enkel, siden sommeren har markedet sett detaljister, institusjonelle investorer, enkeltpersoner med høy formue og familiekontorer som posisjonerer seg og kjøper Bitcoin og andre kryptoer. Og dette er

“Veldig forskjellig fra det vi hadde i 2017 og 2018, hvor dette var en virkelig detaljhandel-drevet vanvidd der alle maksimerte utnyttelse og kreditt for å kjøpe bitcoin. Dette har ennå ikke skjedd. ”

Selv om detaljhandel har kommet, er det ikke i nærheten av det vi så i 2017, noe som gjør dette rallyet „i grunn mye mer lyd“, la han til.

I makroordningen for ting vil all stimulansen som sentralbankene og regjeringen slipper løs i 2020 fortsette å gå inn neste år. Som vi rapporterte forrige uke, har ECB allerede kunngjort sine store tall, og USA kan snart komme til et kompromiss om hjelpepakken.

Morgan Stanley-sjef vurderer strateg, bemerket også at G10-sentralbankene ville injisere ytterligere 2,8 billioner dollar US $ likviditet neste år – bare i deres statsobligasjonskjøp.

Dette er å se om og når all denne likviditeten finner veien inn i finans- og Bitcoin-markedet. Vi ser allerede litt rotasjon ut av gull og inn i Bitcoin i år, takket være sistnevntes digitale gullfortelling.

Cyberangriff: Hacker fordern den israelischen Shirbit auf, innerhalb von 24 Stunden 50 Bitcoin-Lösegeld zu zahlen

Black Shadow-Hacker haben kürzlich eine israelische Versicherungsgesellschaft, Shirbit, angegriffen.
Sie fordern 50 Bitcoin als Lösegeld, das sich verdoppelt, wenn es nicht bis morgen bezahlt wird.
Eine Gruppe von Hackern namens „Black Shadow“ hat Berichten zufolge letzte Woche einen massiven Cyber-Angriff gegen die israelische Versicherungsgesellschaft Shirbit gestartet. Der Crypto Revolt Vorfall führte zum Diebstahl der persönlichen Daten seiner Benutzer. In einem kürzlich veröffentlichten Update des Angreifers wurde die Versicherungsgesellschaft gebeten, 50 Bitcoin an sie zu senden, um die Offenlegung von Kundeninformationen zu vermeiden.

Sie drohten auch, die Zahlung zu verdoppeln, wenn der israelische Shirbit die Bitcoin nicht innerhalb von 24 Stunden sendet.

Shirbit erleidet einen Cyberangriff

Die Hacker von Black Shadow sind am Mittwoch zu Telegram gegangen, um die Bitcoin-Zahlung zu verlangen. Sie stellten genau fest, dass Shirbit „24 Stunden Zeit hat, um 50 BTC an unsere Brieftasche zu senden“, um zu vermeiden, dass die gestohlenen Informationen verkauft oder offengelegt werden. „Wenn Sie nach 24 Stunden nicht bezahlen, ändert sich der Preis auf 100 BTC. Am dritten Tag müssen Sie 200 BTC bezahlen. Danach werden wir die Daten an andere verkaufen “, fügten die Hacker hinzu.

Nach dem Preis von Bitcoin bei 19.066 USD bei Coinmarketcap fordern die Hacker von der Versicherungsgesellschaft etwa 953.300 USD. Obwohl die Hacker feststellten, dass die 24-Stunden-Zählung heute später beginnen würde, stellten jüngste Informationen der Jerusalem Post fest, dass einige persönliche Daten des israelischen Unternehmens bereits bekannt wurden. Zu den Informationen gehörten die ID-Nummern, Registrierungsformulare und der Führerschein.

In der Zwischenzeit hatten die nationale Kapitalmarktbehörde und die nationale Cyber-Direktion den Angriff bestätigt und sagen, dass derzeit Ermittlungen zu dem Angriff laufen.

Cyber-Bedrohung auf dem Vormarsch

Cyber-Angriffe haben seit diesem Jahr zugenommen, und die Angreifer fordern aufgrund ihrer Anonymität meistens Lösegeld in Bitcoin. Kürzlich berichtete Cryptopolitan , dass Ragnar Locker, eine Ransomware-Bande, einen ähnlichen Angriff auf Campari, einen italienischen alkoholischen Likör, gestartet habe. Sie hatten Bitcoin in Höhe von etwa 15 Millionen US-Dollar als Lösegeld gefordert, um die Datenexposition zu vermeiden.

Apple kann 145k Bitcoin mit nur 1% seiner 191 Milliarden Dollar in bar kaufen

Apple verfügt über insgesamt 191,83 Milliarden Dollar an liquiden Mitteln, im Vergleich zum dritten Quartal des Jahres 2020, als es 193,8 Milliarden Dollar waren. Apple ist bekannt dafür, dass es einen der größten Barmittelstapel unter den Unternehmen hat.

Bei dem aktuellen Preis von Bitcoin von 13.300 Dollar kann der Technologieriese Apple, wenn er sich hypothetisch entscheidet, so viel BTC zu kaufen, wie er mit dem vorhandenen Bargeld kaufen kann, 14.423.308 BTC verschlingen.

Gegenwärtig zirkulieren 18.529.856 BTC auf dem Krypto-Währungsmarkt.

Dies entspricht 88,24 % der insgesamt 21 Millionen Bitcoin-Münzen, wobei die Millionen von Münzen, die für immer verloren gehen, nicht berücksichtigt sind.

Apple ist mit einer Marktkapitalisierung von 1,9 Billionen Dollar der größte Aktivposten, während Bitcoin mit einer Marktkapitalisierung von 246 Milliarden Dollar auf Platz 21 nur 13 % davon ausmacht.

Treten Sie in die Fußstapfen von MicroStrategy

Was die anderen Technologiegiganten betrifft, so verfügte Microsoft am Ende seines ersten Finanzquartals über 137,98 Milliarden Dollar. Im Vergleich dazu hatten Google und Amazon am Ende des zweiten Quartals 121,08 Milliarden Dollar bzw. 71,77 Milliarden Dollar.

Da bei diesen großen Unternehmen so viel Geld in Bargeld und kurzfristigen Investitionen steckt, hat es die Aufmerksamkeit der Krypto-Community auf sich gezogen, insbesondere nachdem die börsennotierten Unternehmen MicroStrategy und Square einen Teil davon durch Bitcoin ersetzt haben.

„Apple’s Bargeld verliert an Wert. Vielleicht sollten sie in die Fußstapfen von MicroStrategy treten und das Wasser mit sogar 1% Prozent in BTC testen“, schrieb ein Händler.

Selbst mit nur 1% seiner Investition kann Apple 144.233 BTC kaufen.

MicroStrategy war das erste Unternehmen, und seitdem haben sich andere gemeldet, um Bitcoin als Reserveaktiva zur Absicherung gegen den sinkenden US-Dollar anzukündigen. Micahel Saylor, CEO von MicroStrategy, enthüllte diese Woche tatsächlich, dass er persönlich 17.732 BTC besitzt und seit über einem Monat einen vollständigen Knoten von Bitcoin Core Version 0.20.1 betreibt.

Bitcoin befindet sich noch im Anfangsstadium, und im Jahr 2020 sieht es eine zunehmende Akzeptanz, wobei PayPal, JPMorgan und der milliardenschwere Investor Paul Tudor Jones die Auswirkungen spüren werden.

Verglichen mit der Billionen-Marktkapitalisierung von Gold steht dieses digitale Gold erst am Anfang und hat noch einen langen Weg vor sich.

„Wir haben über $5T Bargeld gesprochen, das in den Schatzkammern von Aktiengesellschaften liegt. Worüber nicht gesprochen wurde, sind die 8,5T $, die in Staatsfonds sitzen, d.h. ‚der Reichtum der Nationen‘. Ihr Engagement in Bitcoin ist gleich Null, ihr optimales Portfolio wird es erfordern“, sagte der On-Chain-Analyst Willy Woo und fügte dem Hopium hinzu.

See two recommended stock portfolios for the week

All major market brokers publish reports to recommended portfolio investors.

In addition, the portfolios have several types of focus such as shares, dividends, small caps and others that can still be divided weekly or monthly.

Below, check with the Investor Guide the recommended stock portfolios of Nova Futura and Necton brokers for the week.

Necton Investments

According to a new report to the Necton market, the brokerage house made two changes to last week’s portfolio.

The broker made the withdrawal of Via Varejo (VVAR3) and Bradesco (BBDC4) papers and included the shares of Tupy (TUPY3) and C&A (CEAB3).

The portfolio recommended by Necton Investimentos this week has the following composition:

  • Ticker Companies
  • C&A CEAB3
  • Even EVEN3
  • Grandene GRND3
  • Suzano SUZB3
  • Tupy TUPY3
  • New Future Investments

Nova Futura has opted for five new shares for its portfolio of the week, according to its new report.

The broker added to the portfolio the shares of AES Tietê (TIET11), Equatorial (EQTL3), Itaú Unibanco (ITUB4), Lojas Americanas (LAME4) and São Martinho (SMTO3).

  • The weekly portfolio indicated by Nova Futura was composed as follows:
  • Ticker Companies
  • AES Tietê TIET11
  • Equatorial EQTL3
  • Itaú Unibanco ITUB4
  • Lojas Americanas LAME4
  • Saint Martin SMTO3

How are these portfolios made?

The idea of the brokerage houses is to build a portfolio with the most suitable assets for the weekly cycle. Based on their analysis and projections, the team of analysts assembles and updates new reports to investors once a week.

In addition, the most common are portfolios containing 5 shares, but this is not a rule and there may be variations of up to 10 papers.

The weight, that is, the distribution of stocks in the portfolio is the same for all. In case a recommended portfolio has 5 shares, each one will weigh 20%, while a portfolio of 10 shares, each one will weigh 10%. On the other hand, if the brokerage company does not make equal weights, it highlights this for investors‘ understanding.

To understand if the portfolio did well, it is compared with a reference index. For stocks cases, the index is the Ibovespa, where the performance is compared in better or worse than the performance of this benchmark. Finally, before making the investments in the recommendations, it is important to raise data and search information of the most updated news to make the best decision.

Monero (XMR) festigt bullischen Trend mit fortlaufender Rallye

XMR handelt zwischen langfristigen Widerstands- und Unterstützungsniveaus von 135 USD bzw. 90 USD.

Das Trust Project ist ein internationales Konsortium von Nachrichtenorganisationen, die Standards für Transparenz entwickeln.

Der Monero (XMR) -Preis hat alle Verluste aus dem Crash vom 2. bis 4. September wiedererlangt und versucht derzeit, über einem großen Widerstandsniveau auszubrechen.

Der XMR-Preis wird derzeit in der Nähe eines wichtigen Widerstandsbereichs von 132 USD gehandelt. Das Gebiet ist das 0,382-Fib-Retracement-Niveau und ein früheres Widerstandsgebiet, über dem der Preis seit August 2018 nicht mehr gehandelt wurde.

Ein erfolgreicher Ausbruch würde den Preis wahrscheinlich auf 166 USD bringen, was dem 0,5-Fib-Niveau des gesamten Rückgangs und einem früheren Unterstützungsbereich entspricht.

Technische XMR-Signale

Die technischen Indikatoren sind optimistisch, da MACD, RSI und Stochastic Oscillator zunehmen. Während sich der RSI im überkauften Gebiet befindet, hat er noch keine bärische Divergenz hervorgerufen.

Andererseits würde ein Rückgang den Preis wahrscheinlich auf den nächsten langfristigen Unterstützungsbereich von 90 USD bringen. Zum gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt scheint dieses Szenario unwahrscheinlich.

Der Cryptocurrency-Händler @Altcoinsherpa skizzierte ein XMR-Diagramm und erklärte, dass der Preis bis auf 175 US-Dollar steigen könnte. Während der Pegel leicht über dem von uns beschriebenen Widerstandsbereich liegt, ist er nahe genug, um einen gewissen Zusammenfluss zu erzeugen.

Das Sechs-Stunden-Diagramm zeigt, dass der Preis möglicherweise einer aufsteigenden Unterstützungslinie gefolgt ist, seit er am 4. September ein Tief erreicht hat.

Ähnlich wie beim Wochen-Chart gibt es keine Schwäche bei den technischen Indikatoren, obwohl der RSI überkauft ist.

Das Zwei-Stunden-Chart zeigt auch keine Schwächen, obwohl die Rallye begonnen hat, parabolisch zu werden.

Sollte der Preis sinken, gibt es eine geringfügige Unterstützung in der Nähe von 113 USD. Es gibt jedoch noch keine Anzeichen dafür, dass der Preis dies tun wird.

Derzeit ist das wahrscheinlichste Szenario ein möglicher Ausbruch über dem Widerstandsbereich von 135 USD, gefolgt von einem Anstieg auf 165 USD.

Das XMR / BTC-Paar zeigt eine ähnliche Bewegung wie sein USD-Gegenstück, mit dem einzigen Unterschied, dass der Preis den Hauptwiderstandsbereich von 0,0122 yet noch nicht erreicht hat.

Wenn es XMR gelingt, über diesem Bereich auszubrechen, wird der nächste Widerstand bei ~ 0,0139 gefunden.

Technische Indikatoren sind nahezu identisch mit XMR / USD, da MACD, RSI und Stochastic Oscillator zunehmen und sich der RSI bereits im überkauften Bereich befindet.

Es wird erwartet, dass der Preis den Bereich von 0,0122 reach erreicht und möglicherweise in Richtung 0,0139 break ausbricht.

After the raid by the US authorities, heads are falling at the Bitcoin giant BitMEX

The 7 Plagues of BitMEX – Fate continues to befall the leaders of the BitMEX platform. While its founder, Arthur Hayes, had to quit his position as CEO, the technical director of the crypto-exchange was arrested and then released on bail.

Arthur Hayes will no longer run BitMEX

On October 1, the US CFTC undermined the cryptocurrency derivatives platform BitMEX . The financial policeman has indeed filed a complaint on 3 charges against the leaders of crypto-exchanges.

In addition to causing a capital flight of $ 570 million in Bitcoin Profit, it completely called into question the management structure of 100x Group , the parent company of the crypto platform.

According to a statement published on the BitMEX blog, Vivien Khoo , the group’s former COO, becomes the new interim CEO .

“These changes in the direction of our company allow us to focus on our core business, which is to offer trading services to all our clients through the BitMEX platform (…). To us, business is business and we thank all customers for their continued support. »- David Wong, CEO of 100x Group

As this publication explains, „Founders Arthur Hayes and Samuel Reed have stepped back from their responsibilities as a general manager . “ The latter was also arrested by the authorities of the US state of Massachusetts, the day of the announcement of the complaint from the CFTC (October 1).

Samuel Reed released for $ 5 million

BitMEX’s now ex-CTO, Samuel Reed , was released on probation 2 days after his arrest, according to a crypto-media publication The Block.

Indeed, the District Court of Massachusetts would have approved on October 3 his request for release on bail , request that Samuel Reed had formulated upon his arrest.

Although in the amount of $ 5 million , the bond was only secured by a deposit of $ 500,000 in cash . According to The Block again, „the passports of Reed and his wife were also seized“ .

In exchange for his release, Samuel Reed also agreed to appear in court on his own for all legal proceedings and, if found guilty, to surrender to serve his sentence.

Even if, for now, “ business is business “ for BitMEX, the platform must hasten to put in place regulatory compliance protocols, in particular for the fight against money laundering. As for the 5 founders and ex-leaders of the platform, there is little chance that American justice will leave them alone anytime soon.
