South Korean Authorities Arrest De-Facto Owner Of Bithumb
South Korean authorities have arrested the de-facto owner of the country’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Bithumb, on charges of embezzlement and stock manipulation. According to local reports, Kang Jong-hyun was arrested on the 2nd of February, with the net closing in on other executives. De-Facto Owner Of Bithumb Arrested South Korean authorities have arrested Kang Jong-hyun, the de-facto owner of Bithumb, South Korea’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. The head of the exchange was arrested after the Seoul Southern District Court issued an arrest warrant on the 25th of January. The warrant included several charges against Kang, including dereliction of duty, fraudulent transactions, and market manipulation. The 41-year-old Kang is the elder brother of Kang Ji-yeon, who is the head of Bithumb-affiliated companies Inbiogen and Bucket Studios. Inbiogen, a biotechnology firm, is the largest shareholder of Vidente, a video equipment manufacturer, which in turn, is the largest shareholder in the Bithumb exchange, holding a 34.2% stake. Bucket Studio, an entertainment content distributor, is the majority owner of Inbiogen. A Litany Of Charges Prosecutors in South Korea have contended that the brothers conspired to embezzle corporate funds and manipulate the stock prices of Inbiogen and Bucket Studio, a video production firm, by issuing convertible bonds. CEO Kang Ji-yeon posted a notice on the Bucket Studio website, apologizing to shareholders and stating that the charges against her brother were unsubstantiated. She further added that she would fully cooperate with the authorities during the investigation. Kang Ji-yeon stated, “The allegations surrounding my brother Kang Jong-hyun are unconfirmed and one-sided … I can confidently say that there are no problems related to embezzlement or breach of trust within the company.” Prosecutors had charged Bithumb head Kang and two other executives, charging them with breach of trust, embezzlement, and fraudulent transactions. Prosecutors are convinced that Kang Jong-hyun is the owner of Bithumb and its affiliates and also accused his brother and sister of misappropriating funds and manipulating stock prices. The Bithumb Saga It was first reported on the 10th of January that the South Korean National Tax Service agency had launched an investigation into Bithumb, South Korea’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. As part of the probe, authorities had raided Bithumb’s headquarters and had also raided the exchange’s affiliated companies back in October 2022, subsequently banning Kang from leaving the country. The mystery behind the entire episode deepened further when Park Mo, Bithumb’s largest shareholder, was found dead in front of his own home under mysterious circumstances. Mr. Po was also the subject of an investigation into the alleged embezzlement of funds and market manipulation by the authorities. It is speculated that Mo took his own life due to the charges brought against him. Bithumb is the largest cryptocurrency exchange and has a 24-hour trading volume of around $370 million, according to data from CoinGecko. The exchange was established in 2014 and offers its users 191 coins and over 280 trading pairs. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Tesla Reports BTC Loss Of $140M In 2022
In a recent SEC filing, the electric vehicle manufacturing company reported a loss of $140 million dollars on its net Bitcoin holdings. Impairment Charges Result In BTC Loss The Elon Musk-led EV innovation company has disclosed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it had earned a $204 million gross impairment loss on its Bitcoin holdings across 2022. The impairment loss refers to the reduction in the value of Bitcoin as an asset due to the fluctuating economic circumstances brought about by the crypto winter of 2022. The company further revealed that it had earned $64 million from trading BTC for fiat currencies at different times throughout the year, resulting in a net loss of $140 million from its BTC trading in 2022. The report says, “Digital assets are considered indefinite-lived intangible assets under applicable accounting rules. Accordingly, any decrease in their fair values below our carrying values for such assets at any time subsequent to their acquisition will require us to recognize impairment charges, whereas we may make no upward revisions for any market price increases until a sale. For any digital assets held now or in the future, these charges may negatively impact our profitability in the periods in which such impairments occur even if the overall market values of these assets increase.” Musk, Tesla, And Bitcoin According to the filings, Tesla reported that its aggregate Bitcoin investments in the first quarter of 2021 amounted to $1.5 billion. During this time, founder Elon Musk announced that the company would accept Bitcoin as payment from its U.S.-based customers. However, the payment mode was halted just months later, with Musk claiming the need for Bitcoin to adopt clean energy usage for any future continuation of the payment policy. The company had sold off 75% of its BTC holdings in the second quarter of 2022, citing liquidity concerns after the two-month-long shutdown of the Tesla Gigafactory in Shanghai due to Covid-19. The sell-off earned the company $936 million at the point of sale but actually cost the company a net loss of $106 million due to the drop in the value of the crypto. The company did not sell off any more of its BTCs after that. In its recently released earnings reports for the fourth and last quarter of 2022, it was revealed that Tesla had continued to hold on to its 9720 BTCs for the entire second half of the year.

SEC Fails To Prohibit All LBC Sales
The judge presiding over the SEC’s case against the decentralized publishing platform LBRY has ruled that the secondary sales of LBC do not qualify as the sale of securities. Judge Rules Against SEC The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been pursuing legal action against the crypto company LBRY Inc. On January 30, the watchdog filed an appeal for an injunction order to prevent secondary sales of the LBRY Credits (LBC) cryptocurrency. However, the judge presiding over the matter has ruled that the secondary sale of these cryptos does not constitute the sale of a security. Previous Judgement Favored SEC The matter between the financial regulator and the crypto company started way back in March 2021, when the former filed a complaint against LBRY, accusing it of raising $11 million through the sale of the LBC token as an “unregistered security.” Even though LBRY did not offer tokens to the public in an initial coin offering (ICO), the SEC pointed out that the team had retained tokens for themselves in a ‘pre-mine,’ which were later released on secondary exchanges to fund operations. The summary judgment of the court, in this case, favored the SEC, where the initial sale of the LBC tokens was classified as investment contracts. Encouraged by this ruling, the SEC appealed to the judiciary on Monday for a ruling that would prohibit all sales of LBC tokens. ‘Summary Judgment Not For Secondary Sales’ However, the plan backfired as the judge clarified that the previous ruling applied only to the direct sale of the token. In the case of secondary sales and security lawsuits in the U.S., no court had ever acknowledged an underlying asset as a security since the creation of the Howey Test. Reportedly, the judge clarified that the summary judgment does not apply to secondary market sales and that he would not be issuing the injunction sought by the SEC as it included secondary sales. SEC Vs. Ripple It has been a common approach for the SEC to accuse crypto companies of offering tokens as “unregistered securities.” The watchdog is already in an ongoing legal battle with leading cryptocurrency Ripple, alleging that the latter distributed its XRP tokens as unregistered securities. Therefore the recent ruling in the SEC vs. LBRY case could benefit Ripple, which had also never held an initial coin offering. The SEC is already struggling in its case against Ripple, as recently, in September, the case judge ruled the Hinman documents to be admissible evidence. These documents prove that the SEC practiced selective enforcement actions and did not view XRP as the same as ETH. Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Most recently in October 2022, TRON was designated as the national blockchain for the Commonwealth of Dominica, which is the first time a major public blockchain partnering with a sovereign nation to develop its national blockchain infrastructure. On top of the government’s endorsement to issue Dominica Coin (“DMC”), a blockchain-based fan token to help promote Dominica’s global fanfare, seven existing TRON-based tokens - TRX, BTT, NFT, JST, USDD, USDT, TUSD, have been granted statutory status as authorized digital currency and medium of exchange in the country.

U.K. Takes a Page from TradFi’s Books to Regulate Cryptoassets
The United Kingdom (U.K.) has opened a consultation on new rules for regulating the crypto sector. The government intends to regulate cryptoassets, including trading, lending, and custody, similarly to that traditional finance (TradFi). The U.K. has set out plans to regulate cryptocurrencies and protect consumers. H.M. Treasury issued a press release earlier today in which it opened consultation surrounding a set of “ambitious plans to robustly regulate cryptoasset activities – providing confidence and clarity to consumers and businesses alike.” The U.K. government’s actions to regulate cryptocurrencies have been driven by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s plans to attract more crypto business and investment in the country and to make the U.K. a global crypto-asset hub, and out of a need to better protect consumers against volatile market conditions such as those experienced in recent months. U.K. Announces “Robust” Plans to Protect Consumers and Grow the Economy As cryptoassets, or “crypto,” as they are more commonly known, are a new, diverse, and evolving class of assets that have so many benefits to offer; they do, however, come with risk to consumers. As is the nature of emerging technology markets, cryptos remain highly volatile, and the recent failures of some of the top industry players have “exposed the structural vulnerability of some business models in the sector.” The U.K. argues that its robust approach to regulating the crypto sector will mitigate some of the most significant risks while benefiting from the advantages of the digital asset market. The consultation was published on February 1, and Treasury will continue to seek responses until April 30. Andrew Griffith, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, said in the press release: We remain steadfast in our commitment to grow the economy and enable technological change and innovation – and this includes cryptoasset technology. But we must also protect consumers who are embracing this new technology - ensuring robust, transparent, and fair standards. U.K.’s Approach to Regulating Cryptoassets is Consistent with its Approach to TradFi The Treasury has said it will seek to regulate cryptoassets in an approach consistent with traditional finance. The first of the U.K.’s robust approach to regulation is to place the responsibility on crypto trading venues for defining detailed content requirements for admission and disclosure documents, ensuring that crypto exchanges have fair and robust standards. The government has also proposed strengthening the rules around financial intermediaries and custodians. These entities enable the transacting and storage of customers’ cryptoassets. The proposed regulations also address industry concerns about the limited number of Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) authorized cryptoasset firms who can issue their own promotions. According to reports by Bloomberg, many crypto companies raised concerns over the government’s proposals on cryptoasset promotion, arguing that firms which have already met the FCA’s standards should be able to issue their own advertisements without having an authorized third-party sign-off. To address this, H.M. Treasury is introducing a time-limited exemption to this rule. The exemption will allow cryptoasset businesses registered with the FCA for anti-money laundering purposes to issue their own promotions for the time being while the broader cryptoasset regulatory regime is being introduced. FCA Rejects Most Crypto Companies The U.K. should receive H.M. Treasury’s proposed regulation well, given that issues with the FCA have recently come to light beyond those mentioned above. Recent reports revealed that the FCA has thus far only given regulatory approval to 41 of the 300 crypto-related companies registered with the agency. The agency made an announcement regarding the fact that only about 15% of companies have gained regulatory approval. Still, it gave no decisive reason why the agency has successfully approved so little. The FCA said: The FCA has been the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) supervisor of U.K. cryptoasset businesses since January 10, 2020. Since then, we have received over 300 applications for registration under the MLRs and have determined over 260 as of January 2023. Of the applications we determined, we approved and registered 41 (15%), 195 (74%) were either refused or withdrew their application, and we rejected 29 (11%) submissions. Global Cryptoasset Regulation Appears Imminent The U.K.’s effort to regulate the crypto sector aligns with the global approach to cryptoassets. In April, the European Union (E.U.) will have its final vote on its wide-ranging Markets in Cryptoasset bill (MiCA), while the Biden Administration announced a framework for reducing the risks associated with cryptoassets last week.

Betts issues RecruitCoin to disrupt the recruitment sector
Cryptocurrencies are on their way to solving problems in many sectors across most industries. Now RecruitCoin is about to become the first cryptocurrency with a solid use case for disruption of the recruitment industry. Up to now, rewarding network participants with gift cards and not so well thought out referral programs haven’t really done what they set out to do, which was to properly incentivize the participants so that they stay in the network, and that they actively work to bring others in. Betts Recruiting,a leading recruitment firm with thousands of clients across the technology space, is prioritising technology, specifically from the cryptocurrency sector, to help it to keep its professionals, use them to attract others, and as a consequence, grow its Connect talent network. With today’s new launch, whenever a new participant signs up for Betts Connect, they receive RecruitCoin for doing so. By referring others to join the talent network they receive more RecruitCoin. Those who work to engage and bring others into the Betts Connect talent pool are rewarded, and as those who they’ve brought in engage with the Connect network, the referrer can also benefit from earning residual RecruitCoin. As well as referrals, the type of engagement that qualifies for RecruitCoin rewards is specified as; responding to new job opportunities, interviewing, and getting placed. Betts is currently working with Earnity in order to provide other ways in which holders of RecruitCoin can exchange it for tangible rewards. Carolyn Betts, Founder and CEO of Betts Recruiting commented: “We are so thrilled to announce the launch of RecruitCoin. We believe that the recruitment process as a whole is in need of innovation in order to continue to build trust. Betts is changing the landscape of recruiting by being the first recruit-tech company that compensates people for their engagement, referrals, and data. RecruitCoin positions Betts at the forefront of this transformation, as blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies play a crucial role in shaping the future of the recruitment industry as a whole.” Should Betts Recruiting be successful in implementing RecruitCoin into its talent network, and those who receive and use it recognise the utilities that it brings and seek the rewards that it offers, then RecruitCoin has the potential to really kickstart the recruiting industry.

Lebanese central bank devalues currency by 90% - Bitcoin anyone?
The central bank of Lebanon has announced that it has devalued the Lebanese pound by 90%. Has Bitcoin’s time truly arrived? Lebanese central bank governor Riad Salameh announced on Tuesday that the new official exchange rate for the Lebanese pound (LBP) is 15,000 pounds per U.S. dollar, to take effect from 1 February. This is a 90% debasement from the official rate that has been in effect for the last 25 years. However, according to an article on Reuters, this devaluation still does not come close to matching the unofficial rate on the “parallel market” of 57,000 pounds per U.S. dollar. The Reuters article only discussed the impact of the devaluation for the commercial banks. Salameh was quoted as saying that in order to account for the impact, the banks would be given 5 years in which to “reconstitute the losses due to the devaluation”. The IMF, like a buzzard hovering over its prey, has told Lebanese authorities to just deal with the $70 billion in financial sector losses. The Lebanese ruling elite are currently in discussions with the IMF for a $3 billion bailout. How much suffering will have to be imposed on the Lebanese population in order to swing the deal is anybody’s guess. The Lebanese people already have to cope with the banks’ imposition of withdrawal controls, which are severely restricting their ability to take their own money out of the banks in order to survive. Opinion It is to be wondered just how much financial suffering it will take before people realise that the traditional monetary system is deeply, deeply flawed, and is set up in a way that transfers their wealth away from them and into the hands of the ruling elites. One of the mantras of central bankers is that 2% inflation is where we all need to be, and they supposedly engineer all their rate rises and cuts in order to hit somewhere very near to that figure. Of course, the basket of goods that is used to measure inflation can never be trusted to stop going up in price. Therefore over many years the central bankers take the more troublesome items out of the basket and insert new ones whose price does not go up so fast. The website “” is a good source for tracking how inflation figures have been manipulated in this way over many decades. One further food for thought is that even if central banks are able to keep inflation at 2%. Just 2% inflation a year over the lifetime of a generation is enough to steal 50% of its entire wealth. In the current crypto bear market, Bitcoin lost as much as 77% of its value. Given its recent recovery, this has reduced to 66%. Even if Bitcoin should fall again and perhaps go as low as $10,000, the potential upside of a new bull market might make this a very interesting alternative to holding fiat currency in the bank. Of course, it is very debatable, but surely a rise in a store of value that is completely outside of the traditional monetary system could be preferred to the 100% certainty of fiat currency trending down to zero.
