A Look at the Newest Legal Challenge Against Bitfinex and Tether’s Price Manipulation Stigma


It is more than obvious that the last is yet to be heard about controversies in the crypto world. At the moment, the reports are buzzing with issues relating to the Bitfinex exchange and Tether (USDT). The latest reports out there show that there is another hammer of legal attack against Bitfinex. Although the new class-action lawsuit has been lampooned by some, it did not stop it from being filed at the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.

A statement released revealed that those who were described as mercenary attorneys are the ones engaging in the relentless attack on Bitfinex and Tether. It is these attorneys that have been accused of filing the class-action lawsuit against the venture. As hinted earlier, the filing has been done at the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.

Gathering Controversy

The release did not give too many details about the court case itself. However, it showed that the attack is not really new because some filings of the same nature have been entered for submission as far back as October. As Bitfinex copes with fresh legal attacks, there is information that yet another lawsuit is being prepared. Bitfinex and Tether are both being observed by analysts. The observation stated that Tether is the one behind various manipulative moves in the cryptocurrency niche.

As it is now, the venture has issued a very firm denial. It is saying it has nothing to do with all the problems or even on the side of Bitfinex. But if there is anything to go by, the reply shows that they may even decide to sue the so-called mercenary attorneys. Some are saying the attack is not just on these ventures alone but all of the cryptocurrency market.

More Controversy

The reply stated that all the claims stemming from all sides are going to be intensely contested, saying that the claims will be dismissed at the end of the day. It went on to state that once they have been vindicated, both Tether and Bitfinex are going to be exploring all the legal options that they have. This is going to be with the goal to bring those behind the claims to justice.

The reply was definitely defiant and described the allegations as being absurd and groundless. They were described as calculated attacks on the whole cryptocurrency token niche, a sector in which Bitfinex is very proud to be a part of. The statement rounded up saying it is not a fight for one but for the entire cryptocurrency niche.

As Bitfinex reels under a fresh court case, both the platform and Tether (USDT) are insisting that they have not done anything wrong and that they have not broken any law. The most recent reports on the ground reveal that both worked under the same banner. This was via a company referred to as iFinex and this is not the first time they were going to be embroiled in controversies. But whatever the case, both Bitfinex, and Tether are maintaining their positions.
