The saga as for Canada’s key crypto exchange QuadrigaCX kept developing over the weekend because watchdogs got involved. Earlier it was informed that Canada’s relevant provincial watchdog, the Ontario Securities Commission, started probing the crypto exchange. The watchdog is assured that there’s a loophole leaving crypto investors exposed to risks. Currently, it’s not clear who’d be held accountable for any probable losses.
Issues first arose when in December QuadrigaCX’s CEO passed away without providing anybody with access to money in cold wallets that turn out to be storage facilities for money that have no connection to the internet.
Considering the potential harm to Ontario traders, the Ontario Securities Commission is closely watching this matter and has already been in touch with the monitor.
