Op Ed: A Summary of  NYAG vs. Bitfinex/Tether

Courthouse

In the latest on the ongoing legal dispute between the New York Attorney General (NYAG), cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex and stablecoin issuer Tether, the New York Supreme Court has modified an April 24, 2019, preliminary injunction and now Bitfinex is allowed to continue using the Tether reserves that were loaned to it to maintain its ordinary course of business, such as paying employees and consultants. But Bitfinex may not withdraw any further funds from the Tether reserve and must comply with all document requests pursuant to the NYAG investigation. This modified preliminary injunction went into effect on May 16, 2019, and will last for 90 days.

History of the Dispute

On April 24, 2019, the Office of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Commercial Division granted an order submitted by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) requiring Bitfinex/Tether to provide information under the Martin Act. The Court granted a preliminary injunction restricting Bitfinex/Tether from further violating the Martin Act including engaging in “fraudulent, deceptive, or illegal acts,” and “employing any device, scheme, or artifice to defraud or obtain money or property by means of false pretense, representation, or promise.”

Bitfinex/Tether objected that the OAG gave no warning, despite being in close communication with them, and pleaded to the court to modify the order. There was a hearing on May 6, 2019, and the court found that Bitfinex/Tether needed to produce some more evidence but agreed the preliminary injunction should also be modified.

The primary concern raised by the court is that, on February 21, 2019, the OAG learned that Bitfinex was contemplating a transaction that would allow Bitfinex to draw upon Tether’s cash reserves on an as-needed basis. The OAG had serious concerns about the viability of Bitfinex and whether any money it “borrowed” could ever be repaid to the Tether reserves. Bitfinex/Tether disregarded these concerns and established paperwork for a $900 million line of credit with Tether’s reserves and notified the OAG two days later, on March 29, 2019. As it turned out, $625 million had already been borrowed back in November 2018, so this line-of-credit paperwork appeared to be an attempt to get the ducks in a row after the fact. The loan left Tether with $150 million in its reserves and the NYAG suspected that this could be dissipated at any time. Bitfinex/Tether adamantly maintained it was a proper, arms-length transaction.

This resulted in the April 24, 2019, court ordered document production and injunction, forbidding Bitfinex from accessing the Tether reserves for any reason whatsoever.

It appears that the court has received a lot of the documents it was requesting from Bitfinex/Tether, which was a primary purpose of placing the injunction. So, on May 16, 2019, the court modified the injunction. The court noted that its injunction powers through New York Business Law and The Martin Act are limited beyond the scope of forcing document production: “[the applicable law] does not provide a roving mandate to regulate commercial activity by subjects or targets of a Martin Act investigation.”

The court found that the NYAG made a sufficient showing to meet the very high standards required for a preliminary injunction that would prevent Bitfinex/Tether from continuing to let dollars flow out of Tether’s reserves while the investigation continues. The court revised the preliminary injunction to strike a balance between protecting the public and protecting Bitfinex/Tether from undue business restrictions. The initial temporary injunction was found to be vague, overbroad and not preliminary because it had no end point. It prevented Bitfinex/Tether from “further violations of the law or committing fraud.”

The May 16 Order

The court reworded the preliminary injunction so as not to restrain Bitfinex/Tether from ordinary business activities. Now Bitfinex/Tether and their agents are prohibited from

  • Any use of Tether’s reserves by Bitfinex
  • Making any distributions or dividends to any of the high-level associates of Bitfinex/Tether using funds that were already borrowed from Tether’s reserves ( this does not include payments in the ordinary course of business, such as payroll, payments to vendors, consultants, contractors, etc.)
  • Directly or indirectly tampering with or destroying any evidence (including a long list of documents/communications) or other information requested by the NYAG’s November 27, 2018, or February 26, 2018, (this may be a typo, I think the court meant 2019) document requests.

This preliminary injunction will last 90 days beginning from May 16, 2019.

Meanwhile, Bitfinex appears to have raised $1 billion privately over 10 days, according to its CTO, Paolo Ardoino, on Twitter.

Coinbase CEO Teases Launch of Debit Card in the U.S.

Coinbase card.jpg

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has announced that the company is working on introducing its debit card to customers in the U.S.

Armstrong’s announcement came in a live AMA session on YouTube on May 16, 2019, during which he fielded questions and touched on various topics such as community trust ratings for altcoins and fraud prevention. While he did confirm that the debit card is coming to U.S. customers, he didn't divulge a specific release date.

Last month, Coinbase launched the Coinbase Card, a Visa-based debit card which, according to the exchange, allows customers to make purchases online and in-store using their crypto balances.

But the Coinbase Card, along with the expense-managing Coinbase Card App, have only been released to customers in the U.K. However, according to Armstrong, its entry into the United States isn’t so far off.

Will Coinbase Add Margin Trading?

Armstrong also spoke about the inclusion of margin trading on Coinbase Pro, which he claimed is one of the most frequently requested features from customers.

He said that if Coinbase is to move into margin trading, there will be a lot of regulatory concerns to figure out.

“This is one of those products where you have to innovate not just on the technology, but also on the regulatory side,” Armstrong said.

With margin trading, traders are able to “borrow” money from exchanges to make trades, and the high-yield possibilities tend to encourage traders to make large, risky investments.

Countries like Japan have introduced some very strict laws regarding margin trading for cryptocurrency, adding restrictions like caps on available leverage and requiring exchanges that support the feature to register with financial regulators.

Smell Something Fishy? The CFTC Will Pay You to Report Crypto Scams

Whistleblower

Nestled in the exhibition room at this year’s Consensus conference, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) had a message for conference goers as they weaved in and out of booths representing various projects and startups in the space: “Be on the lookout for virtual currency fraud” and if you see it, let us know.

CFTC Booth at Consensus 2019

“The Whistleblower Office of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is issuing this alert to inform members of the public about how they may make themselves eligible for both financial awards and certain protections while helping stop [sic] fraud and manipulation relating to virtual currencies,” a handout from the booth reads.

The CFTC has long classified bitcoin as a commodity, and the document states that the CFTC considers all “virtual currencies [as] commodities under the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA).”

This same act gives the agency regulatory power to prosecute virtual currency fraudsters. Since the 2017 price run-up, crypto scams have been on the agency’s radar and it’s been keen to keep investors privy to project warning signs. In cooperation with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the CFTC has cracked down on illegal bitcoin brokers and dealers, as well as fraudulent crypto consultants and token rackets like My Big Coin.

In the whistleblowing briefing document, the CFTC uses My Big Coin and CabbageTech as textbook examples of scammy behavior. Among other red flags it warns potential whistleblowers against pump-and-dump schemes, wash/insider trading, unregistered derivatives platforms and “supervision failures or fraudulent conduct (e.g., creating or reporting fictitious trading) by virtual currency exchanges.”

If you notice any of these behaviors in practice, “you don’t have to be an ‘insider’ ... to be a whistleblower,” the document reads. It continues to tell readers that they can tip off bad actors through the agency’s website, asking that they provide as much information on the alleged scams and orchestrators as possible (this includes “identifying information” like social media profiles, screenshots, bitcoin addresses, email addresses, etc.).

Anyone whose whistleblow ends in more than $1 million in sanctions against such companies are entitled to 10 to 30 percent of the monetary penalty.

A CFTC representative declined an interview, telling Bitcoin Magazine that each employee must be cleared by the agency to go on record. Bitcoin Magazine did learn that this was the CFTC’s first year at Consensus and that the agency has been making its rounds through the crypto conference circuit over the past year.

Minnesota Representative to Reintroduce Hard Fork Tax Reform Bill

Coins Bills

Minnesota Congressional Representative Tom Emmer has announced plans to reintroduce a bill meant to “provide temporary safe harbor for the tax treatment of hard forks of convertible virtual currency in the absence of administrative guidance.”

Representative Emmer participated in a panel on the relationship between government and the crypto industry at Consensus 2019 on May 13, 2019, wherein he first announced an attempt to continue the fight for his hard fork bill. Joined by industry leaders and government personalities, Emmer publicly acknowledged the sort of limbo that crypto holders find themselves in when one of their cryptocurrency holdings undergoes a hard fork. When a coin forks in such a way, tax agencies currently have grounds to consider the new “forkcoin” assets as undeclared income.

The first iteration of this bill was introduced by Emmer in September 2018, when it was immediately transferred over to the jurisdiction of the House Committee on Ways and Means. Having effectively died in committee with no significant updates since, Emmer has now declared that the updated version of the bill will differ in several ways from the text of the original, possibly including protections for other means of crypto asset holding such as airdrops.

The issuance of crypto asset forks has been a recurring topic of discussion in the space for several years now, ever since the first major forkcoins were created from the original Bitcoin blockchain. The practice has gained quite a deal of notoriety recently, however, upon the fork of Bitcoin Cash in November 2018. Bitcoin Cash is itself one of the most famous of the original forkcoins and this subsequent split raised many questions about the status of forkcoins in the future. In particular, clarifying the legal status of these assets in the tax ecosystem seems pressing.

Emmer gave no concrete timetable as to when he plans to reintroduce his bill, titled the “Safe Harbor for Taxpayers with Forked Assets Act.” He has mentioned support from other representatives in a Blockchain Caucus which may give this second attempt at getting the bill passed a better chance.

Tether and Bitfinex Ask New York Attorney General for Fund Accessibility

Gavel

Attorneys for Tether and Bitfinex are hoping to get the former access to its reserves amid a legal dispute with New York Office of the Attorney General (NYOAG).

In a letter sent to the New York County Supreme Court, attorneys representing iFinex (the parent organization of Bitfinex) and Tether took issue with the restrictions that had been placed on Tether's transactions with related parties as part of an ongoing case against them, stating that the NYOAG had no basis for disallowing tether (USDT) holders and other affiliated entities from redeeming their tokens.

The development brings yet another twist to the ongoing dispute between the parties. In April 2019, the NYOAG applied for a court order to investigate Bitfinex for “ongoing fraud” totaling $850 million, using funds from Tether to mask massive losses. As part of the case, the NYOAG had filed an injunction seeking a restriction on related parties from accessing any of their funds in Tether's reserve for at least 90 days.

The NYOAG’s argument is simple; if Bitfinex is allowed to continue drawing funds from Tether, with no assurance of repayment, then there’s a significant possibility that these funds will never be recovered.

On the other hand, Bitfinex maintains that the NYOAG has no legal basis or authority to probe its business.

In this recent letter sent to the court, iFinex's attorneys noted that the two sides have been unable to reach a consensus on what Tether should be allowed to do with its holdings. The respondents also expressed their concern that the injunction sought by the NYOAG could have significant effects on Tether’s operations and financial strength.

“While Tether does not anticipate that it will suddenly become unprofitable, OAG’s language would potentially require the company to cut off salary and other ordinary course payments in any given period if, for whatever reason, there was insufficient profit,” the document reads.

As a compromise, the respondents’ attorneys asked that the injunction be reduced to 45 days. They also want affiliated entities to have the ability to redeem their tokens within that period.

BitGo Announces New Settlement System for Institutional Clients

Bitcoin Shield

Blockchain security company BitGo is launching a new service for institutional clients: a clearing and settlements system that operates off-chain.

BitGo announced this new service in a press release on May 14, 2019, describing some of the features that this new system will have. Assets “never need to leave custody,” according to the announcement, and “counterparty risk is minimized” with BitGo acting as custodian for both sides of any deal.

BitGo expects its in-house clearing and settlements service to make arranging such deals more convenient. For example, all funds up for negotiation will remain in cold storage until after an agreement is signed, so that the risks of fraud by either party or outside actors is minimized. Additionally, investors do not need to break up their balance sheets by parking assets at every exchange with which they wish to trade.

This new service has evidently been in the works for quite some time. In September 2018, BitGo first received the go-ahead from regulators to act as a qualified custodian for digital assets, a necessary prerequisite for this plan. At the time, BitGo Chief Compliance Officer Shahla Ali told Bitcoin Magazine that the company intended to offer storage for assets “designed for institutional customers.” The press release announcing the new service specifically mentions that it is only available to these types of client.

The off-chain clearing and settlements service is the first publicly announced project specific to the BitGo Trust Company.

It is unclear whether or not the service will ever open up to a wider variety of investors. Currently, the service is only available to “OTC desks, single dealer platforms, exchanges, asset managers and broker-dealers,” according to the press release, and this may be the extent of BitGo’s plans.
