Bitfinex has announced plans to offer bitcoin options that will put it in direct competition with two major traditional exchange operators, Intercontinental Exchange and CME Group’s Bakkt. Both of those also announced enhanced bitcoin options choices over the past two days.
Federal prosecutors have indicted Oz Yosef, a principal of Crypto Capital Corp., on three counts of bank fraud and conspiracy in cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex's $880 million loss.
The parent of cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex and stablecoin-issuer Tether has asked a federal court to help it get back $880 million lost to an alleged con man.
The same lawyers who sued Craig Wright for $5 billion are going after Tether and Bitfinex, demanding a staggering $1.4 trillion.
