Crypto assets go up

Eventually, the number one digital currency, Bitcoin managed to head north by up to 2.81% concluding the trading session at $5,375.6.

Crypto investors were still keeping an eye on the investigation into key Bitcoin exchange Bitfinex for fraud. Run by Bitfinex, Tether appears to be a stablecoin reportedly underpinned by the value of the evergreen buck on a 1:1 ratio. However, the latest development uncovered the opposite thing.
As follows from the recent investigation, the operators of the Bitfinex trading platform, controlling Tether, have tried to conceal the evident loss of $850 million dollars of the co-mingled client as well as corporate funds.
The Attorney General told that Bitfinex has already taken up to $700 million from Tether’s reserves. Besides taking that sum the company has dared to conceal the very fact of that transaction from investors.
Aside from that, CoinFlip, crypto automated teller machine operator told it has delayed support for Tether for some time.
CoinFlip's major concern is to make sure that their clients are absolutely safe, and they often overdo in terms of caution. We require full assurance that the crypto asset Tether is steady enough, and Bitfinex and Tether strictly adhere to US law.
