Is FTX Hack a Fake? Bahamas Regulator Takes U-Turn
FTX HACK NEWS – As the FTX contagion expands, regulators are making a U-turn on their previous claims. According to a media release by the Securities Commission of The Bahamas the watchdog directed the transfer of all FTX digital assets into a digital wallet.
Mario Nawfal (CEO of IBC group) stated that the Securities Commission of the Bahamas has now contradicted their previous claim. They stated that the watchdog had not directed funds to be moved from FTX wallets.
They now admit that they ordered FTX (FTX Digital Markets) to take all FTX assets. The letter stated that urgent regulatory action was necessary to protect clients and creditors in relation to FTX.
