The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency has summoned the chairman of Bithumb for interrogation regarding the alleged fraud. The chairman of the firm, Lee Jung-hoon has been accused of a lot of fraud activities. The fraud is related to the failed listing of the BXA token and defrauding the investors.

As revealed in earlier reports, this token has been promoted as the native token of Bithumb. However, the token has never been launched or listed on any platform. Due to the promotion of a fake token, Lee is now involved in a huge fraud, which includes the damages of around $25 million funds of the investors.

Seoul Police Conducted Initial Investigation at Bithumb Office

It needs to be mentioned that this police raid did not happen all of a sudden as earlier also Seoul police had investigated this case. The initial investigation that police conducted was on September 02, 2020 at the office of Bithumb. Lee has also been accused of using the investors fund purchasing the properties overseas or some other offshore investments.

According to the latest report, Kim Byung-gun who is another chairman of Bithumb, is also accused of getting involved in this BXA fraud along with Lee. However, the Seoul Police did not send any summon for investigation to Kim regarding this case. 

Police Siezed The Shares Related to Lee

Along with this summon, the police has also siezed a lot of shares of the Bithumb Holdings that belonged to Lee. Not only this, the firm is also help responsible for a data breach incident which took place in 2017. Even though the exchange is accused of different allegations, it is still holding quite a firm position in the South Korean market. Not only in South Korea, it is still counted among the top ten largest crypto exchanges across the world. The daily trading volume of the exchange is around $250 million, which might be due to its huge user base.

Exploring the current state of cryptocurrency taxation in the European Union


Quick Take

  • By now, guidelines for  taxation of cryptocurrency activities exist in most EU member countries. However, grey areas remain.
  • Highly favorable tax treatments in some, and lack of taxation in other EU member countries enables regulatory arbitrage.
