The operation started at the beginning of this month and 70 new investigations have been opened in addition to 35 pending or finished requirement activities.
“We’re putting ourselves in the shoes of investors. We’re seeing what’s being promoted to investors. And then we’re taking the next step and then we’re finding out whether they’re complying with securities laws,” Borg said.
In fact, investigators acted like individuals from general society and found around 30,000 cryptographic money related domain names, most made at some point in the most recent year after the cost of a solitary bitcoin achieved record levels in November.
Huge numbers of the sites guaranteed 4 percent of every day interest, used fake addresses and utilized pictures of superstars and government authorities to deceive potential speculators.
