Hope y'all got the heads up - Bitcoin, Tether prices hammered lower
The news hitting that has sent cryptocurrencies plummeting is here:
The New York attorney general's office says it has obtained court orders requiring iFinex to stop moving money from Tether's reserves to Bitfinex's bank accounts, halt any dividends or other distributions to executives and turn over documents and information.
The amount involved in the alleged coverup is a drain of at least $700 million from Tether's reserves, says the NY AG.
