Nouriel Roubini had earlier lambasted Arthur Hayes and stated that BitMEX may be openly involved in systematic illegality. This was followed by CFTC probe, after which Arthur took a long break from Twitter.

But on the other hand, in an earlier report, BitMEX CEO, Arthur Hayes said that BitMEX will not allow such activities. he stated that;

“We continue to monitor all legal and regulatory developments around the world and will comply with all applicable laws and regulations; we reject any allegations of criminality, manipulation or unfair treatment of our customers, who are at the center of everything we do.”

Well, if his $20 K claims will see light or not, only time will tell. However, there is no doubt that the Bitcoin price is slated for a good rise.

Recently, analyst Max Keiser pointed to developments in the court case which involves Australian cryptocurrency developer, Craig Wright, as being capable of influencing the Bitcoin markets. He further said that Bitcoin markets might be able to avert a selling pressure due to the inability of Craig to deliver 500,000 bitcoins as ordered by the court.

The crypto sphere, especially the exchanges do not fail to bring in the necessary sarcasm and humor required in a space rife with technical jargons and complexities. Do you also agree that the Bitcoin price will hit $20K? Let us know!
