BitMEX Bitcoin Volume Slumps 33% After CFTC Investigation5.4

It was recently revealed that the US Commodity Futures and Trade Commission was beginning a month long investigation of the BitMEX crypto exchange over its high leverage Bitcoin trading options and the legality of allowing US citizens to access the platform.

Bloomberg originally broke the story that the US exchange would be coming under scrutiny from regulators. NewsBTC covered the events yesterday which appear to be linked to comments from senators regarding the crypto industry at two hearings last week on Facebook’s Libra project.
