The last loudest kriptonovostyu was the official statement of the SEC – the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States on the order of regulating the activities of crypto-exchanges. It has been announced that in the case of trading tokens that can be treated as securities, it is declared that the exchange must be registered with the SEC as stock exchanges, trading systems or brokers in accordance with US federal law.
SEC representatives express serious concern with the fact that some crypto-exchange trading platforms positions themselves as officially registered entities, but they are not in reality. This can cause serious problems with the provision of legal protection of the interests of investors. Although these exchanges have well-developed and reliable security tools, the Commission itself did not check and did not approve officially their trading protocols.
Another rumor about the possible hacking of one of the largest Binance exchanges, one of the largest in terms of trade, was another kryptone. Some users said that part of the bitcoin funds was transferred to the airspace, and then withdrawn from the exchange. Some Binance members complain that withdrawal of funds has been suspended, but many other users do not confirm this information.
Representatives of Binance on the Reddit resource said that the stock exchange itself was not hacked, but there is information that the victims of the intruders were users who used to synchronize with trading bots API keys.
These news had a strong impact on the course of all the Crypto-currency. Bitcoin in just an hour lost more than $ 1,000 in value and fell below $ 10,000
