彭博社:美国司法部正在对比特币价格操纵展开刑事调查

根据彭博社北京时间24日下午报道,根据匿名知情人士所说,这项调查是由美国司法部和商品期货交易委员会(CFTC)联合展开的。

据报道,这次调查的一个方向就是所谓的电子欺骗——在传统金融市场中使用的一种技术,通过大量伪造的订单来影响价格变动——这可能影响了比特币和以太坊的交易。

此外,美国司法部正在调查加密货币交易员,他们可能通过向自己发送大量订单,从而创造出一种需求不断增长的海市蜃楼,从而让其他投资者入场接盘。

这一消息标志着美国当局为确保一个公平的加密货币市场而做出的最新努力。自去年年底,CFTC批准国内交易所上线比特币期货和衍生产品。

就在报道发布前几周,CFTC的一名委员就该机构对可能违反法律的加密货币活动的日益严格的审查发表了评论。

正如CoinDesk在华盛顿特区的一次会议上所报道的那样,CFTC委员布莱恩·奎兹说,该机构特别关注“涉及虚拟货币的欺诈、市场操纵和破坏性交易”。

受多重利空消息影响,比特币价格连续多日下跌,截止24日发稿时,比特币跌破7400美元,报7370美元,24小时下跌6.54%。

The U.S Department of Justice has reportedly launched a criminal investigation into cryptocurrency traders who may have manipulated the market using old-school illicit tactics.

According to a report by Bloomberg on Thursday, citing anonymous sources familiar with the probe, the investigation is being conducted together with the Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

One area of the investigation targets so-called spoofing – a technique that has been used in traditional financial markets to affect price movements by making large volumes of fake orders – that possibly influenced trades of bitcoin and ether, according to the report.

In addition, DoJ is probing crypto traders who may have cheated the system by sending themselves large volumes of orders to create a mirage of increasing demand in order to tip other investors into making a move.

The news marks the latest effort by U.S. authorities to ensure a fair cryptocurrency market since the CFTC gave the green light to domestic exchanges to list bitcoin-backed futures and derivative products late last year.

Today's report also comes just weeks after a commissioner from CFTC made comments on the agency's growing scrutiny over cryptocurrency activities that may have violated the law.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, speaking at a conference in Washington, D.C., CFTC commissioner Brian Quintenz said the agency is particularly focusing on "fraud, market manipulation and disruptive trading involving virtual currency."
