This time, the plaintiff seeks compensation of $50 million, according to their attorney.
Among the defendants are the exchange’s key players, including Arthur Hayes (CEO) and Samuel Reed (co-founder). The plaintiff’s attorney, Pavel Pogodin, already participated in legal action against BitMEX in May 2020.
The plaintiff accuses HDR of violating know your customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) policies, which led to the inflow of outlaws like hackers and tax evaders to the platform.
Moreover, Dolgov claims that the exchange exercised various practices to manipulate the market and launder money. As a consequence, he claims to lose a significant amount of funds.
Samuel Reed was earlier arrested but got off, signing a $5 million unsecured appearance bond. The rest of the defendants remain at large.
