The US regulator accused Bitmex stock exchange in illegal activity

The US Commodity Futures Trade Commission (CFTC) filed a civil lawsuit against operators and managers of the exchange of Bitmex derivatives for carrying out illegal operations and violation of UP / CFT norms.

According to the application, the regulator accuses the trading platform in the refusal of registration and illegal provision of services to American retail traders with the involvement of borrowed funds for $ 1 trillion without complying with KYC and AML procedures. CFTC requires removal of all illegal income received, payments for cash fines and a permanent ban on trading activities.

In addition, the County Prosecutor of New York has charged the charge to four Exchange managers in collusion, violating the law on banking secrecy and bribing foreign officials. The Ministry of Justice has already announced the arrest of the Technical Director of Bitmex Reed Dwayer. The accused faces up to five years of imprisonment and a fine of $ 250 thousand.

Exchange denies all accusations and assures users, which will continue to work as usual.
