What Happened With BitConnect?

BitConnect was an important lending and investment platform that promised very high returns to the investors that placed their money with them. BitConnet had also a cryptocurrency known as BCC – or BitConnect coin – that lost more than 97% of its value (if not more).

In January, the company decided to finish its operations after it has been warned by regulators from all over the world. Moreover, BitConnect explains that they have closed the platform because of the negative comments from the press and because they received two Cease and Desist letters from the Texas State Securities Board. Additionally, they received another letter from the North Carolina Secretary of State Securities Division.

The company explained that the BitConnect X ICO was still functional and that they were building an exchange on the BitConnect X website.
