Cryptocurrency investors have withdrawn approximately 45,000 bitcoins from the derivatives exchange BitMEX following the recent charges brought by the US CFTC.
A sizeable portion of the massive amount has ended up on two rival exchanges – Gemini and Binance.
As CryptoPotato reported last week, the US Commodities and Futures Trading Commission pressed charges against the owners of the popular derivatives exchange BitMEX. The CFTC charged Arthur Hayes, Ben Delo, and Samuel Reed with illegally operating a derivatives platform.
