CFTC Bitfinex loads above – or how you can manipulate markets with old news
in the evening hours of 30 January, Bloomberg has reported that Bitfinex concerning tether before the CFTC was summoned. It is interesting that this happened on December 6. However, this has had a dramatic impact on the Bitcoin price via different portals.
A few days ago until something more to tether and Bitfinex has been looked at BTC ECHO . Also, video the perhaps not so very stable Stablecoin from the House of Bitfinex under the microscope was taken on 20 November in a . Accordingly it came as no surprise that the US authorities, more specifically the commodity futures trading Commision allegedly summoned Bitfinex to the cause tether has. The reaction of a known as a nervous market which fell on some exchanges within a very short time under the $10,000 was nor surprising.
What was surprising however: Bloomberg first published the article with a subpoena from ‘last week’ . Interestingly it was however somewhat longer here than otherwise, was this last week with this subpoena to one of 6 December. There was accordingly understandably some people who thought the classic quip “ Honi soit qui time y pense ” in the crypto community.
Whether this accusation is right or not is then provided: it is rather a pity that in the Web 2.0 is some people to beat over, to see is not only the death of Bitfinex, but also of Bitcoin. This was ignored, that Bitfinex and the CFTC ever met, what ended for Bitfinex with a Bußzahlung of $ 75,000.
To further assess of the summonses and fines of the CFTC, it is still helpful to know that Bitfinex long is not the only company, which is a thorn in the side of the CFTC. Deutsche Bank has a Bußzahlung of $30 million pay. To get into trouble with the CFTC, so must have nothing to do with Kryptowährungen.
