The CFTC Files Complaint Against Crypto Trading Company

Advertisment

Furthermore, the CFTC states that by not registering as a futures commission merchant (FCM) with the Commission, the trading company, which “accepts money, securities, or property (or extends credit in lieu thereof) in the form of bitcoin, is in violation of Section 4d(a)(1) of the Act, 7 U.S.C. § 6d(a)(1) (2018).”
According to a report, the CFTC wants a U.S. court to stop Paxforex from continuing with the “unlawful acts and practices,” as well as to compel the company to comply with the relevant laws. Furthermore, the commodity regulator wants the court to stop the defendant “from engaging in any commodity-related activity.”
The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) on Thursday, September 24, filed a complaint against crypto dealing Paxforex for allegedly soliciting or accepting business from US customers without relevant registration.
In the meantime, the CFTC is asking the court to impose civil monetary penalties and remedial ancillary relief, including trading and registration bans, restitution, rescission, pre-judgment, and post-judgment interest.
“Soliciting or accepting orders from non-eligible contract participants (“non-ECPs”), not conducted on or subject to the rules of any Commission-regulated exchange, for the purchase or sale of gold, silver, ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC), and bitcoin (BTC) on a leveraged, margined or financed basis that does not result in the actual delivery of the commodities to the customer.”

On its website, Paxforex claims owners of the company have extensive experience in forex, stocks, options, and CFDs markets as traders and dealers. This experience was gained when the founders worked in managerial positions with the largest brokers, who are now our major competitors.”
