Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex said he was not involved in the case of money laundering in Poland.
According to CoinDesk, Bitfinex conducted an internal investigation “of its international organization”, which showed no connection between its operations and the two fictitious companies, registered in Poland, who are accused of defrauding the Belgian government and money laundering for Colombian drug cartels.
“Based on all available information and facts, it was concluded that these accusations are unfair and unfounded,” – said in a statement Bitfinex.
The company added that it did not become the object of official investigation in any of the jurisdictions on the basis of the charges contained in the Polish media.
“This suggests that the relevant authorities found no grounds for action in respect of statements about the platform Bitfinex,” – emphasizes the company.
Bitfinex also said that none of its users are not faced with the problems of access to his account or due to any action on the part of law enforcement.
Rumors that Bitfinex may be involved in questionable activities appeared in the beginning of this week. The media reported that the Polish authorities seized the accounts of two shell companies that were suspected of laundering money through a “major online cryptocurrency exchange”. The name of the site was not specified, but the Polish portal Spider’s Web, citing its sources said that it could be Bitfinex.
