. Since cryptocurrency exchanges, where people can trade currencies, are often hacked and lack the regulatory oversight of banks, most exchanges hold a significant portion of their money in a “cold” wallet that is not connected to the internet. This is transferred over to a “hot” wallet when needed. QaudrigaCX said that its missing money was in one such wallet.

“Transfers from the cold wallet to the hot wallet would occur when the hot wallet was running low and withdrawals were being sent to users. The transfer of coins from the cold wallet to the hot wallet was performed manually by Gerry Cotton,” Ms Robertson said.

Angry QaudrigaCX customers have been speculating that Mr Cotten faked his death after running into trouble. In January last year the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) froze five accounts linked to QuadrigaCX affecting 388 customers and worth Cdollars 25 million, citing confusion about who owned those savings. The funds were released by a court in Ontario on December 3, according to QuadrigaCX.
oh well, something happened, that's for sure

Two Celebrities Charged With Unlawfully Touting Coin Offerings

"Investors should be skeptical of investment advice posted to social media platforms, and should not make decisions based on celebrity endorsements," said Enforcement Division Co-Director Steven Peikin.

"Social media influencers are often paid promoters, not investment professionals, and the securities they’re touting, regardless of whether they are issued using traditional certificates or on the blockchain, could be frauds."

over-leveraged and over-margined .....regardless of the goss many positions get closed to cover margin calls on other assets
same thing happened for gold in 2007/9 rotation in equities ..all one big pond of liquidity
nothing new in the world of squeezes...there are rare times when correlation is actually causation

which is nice !

The price of bitcoin dropped sharply overnight, briefly dipping below $5,000 per coin as a brutal sell-off gripping the cryptocurrency market deepened.

By 11.45 a.m. ET, the benchmark cryptocurrency was trading lower by around 8.5% at $5,164, having rebounded a little from the worst of the day’s trading, according to Markets Insider data.

Monday’s falls extend a horrible week for bitcoin, which has seen it drop to a low not seen since late 2017, just prior to the explosion in prices which saw bitcoin come close to $US20,000 per coin before collapsing rapidly.

Bitcoin has lost close to 20% of its value in the last three months....

Looking at the trend in the past 24H the cryptomarket is nicely correlated with the rest of the global markets.
