Korean UPbit indicted for Fraud

Not only good news in South Korean about the crypto market, but there is also bad news and noise. South Korea’s regulators have issued legal actions for fraud against three senior members of UPbit.

The company, one of the South Korean largest cryptocurrency exchange, is now facing formal charges by prosecutors in the name of three of its senior executives, including its founder, Song Chi-Hyung.

Prosecutors say that executives made fraudulent transactions three times between September 2017 and December 2018. Executives manipulated market while using fake accounts to make bogus orders by 120 billion won, so they would inflate trading volume figures to catch more customers.

The company said, in a press release, that they have been collaborating with the prosecutors in the last eight months of investigation. “We will fully cooperate with the prosecution’s investigation to show the allegations are totally false.”

“The Company has no intention to sell or buy assets in fraudulent transactions as the prosecution said,” the company press release said. “Upbit, as a corporate body, has never liquidated any assets acquired via fraud or used fraudulent assets to make further transactions.”

UPbit also stated that they did not take advantage of any fraudulent activity.
