South Korean cryptocurrency exchange bithumb once again came to the fore with investigations. According to local media, many top executives working in the stock market face bribery charges.
The Seoul District Attorney’s Office announced on Friday that it has launched an investigation against Bithumb executives. Allegedly, executives made an implicit financial agreement for an altcoin to be listed on the platform.
While it was not disclosed what the cryptocurrency in question was, law enforcement officers raided the home and corporate offices of Bithumb chief executive Lee Sang-jun.
