The capitalization of cryptocurrencies has returned to the $2.1 trillion mark from which growth began this week. Analysts blame Lumesbit for the loss of funds for yesterday’s day, the exchange stopped withdrawing funds to the crypto wallets of three blockchains at the moment when information about a new investigation by the US authorities came out.
According to the information, the site is not without reason suspected of insider trading based on the information received from customers.
The US authorities have tightened up the CFTC investigation, which indicates two things. The first suggests that manipulations were carried out in a less liquid derivatives market based on information on future spot volumes of institutions. The second thing indicates an active search for transactions of US citizens with cryptocurrencies.
The version is confirmed by the selected composition of the investigation department against Lumesbit. The group is assembled in Chicago, the international center for derivatives trading. The most talented CFTC investigators work there, they were the ones who won the case against the BitMEX exchange at the time.
