According to James McDonald, director of law enforcement at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, this case demonstrated another CFTC victory.

Kevin Castel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY, resolve the charges of the CFTC Complaint against GBI and Gelfman filed on September 21, 2017". On top of that, Gelfman also carried out a fake hack that supposedly wiped out customer deposits and profits from the platform.

It comes as no surprise to see the Financial Action Task Force in Paris declaring that it will be requiring member countries to license or regulate cryptocurrency exchanges, including providers of currency "wallets". It was suspected to carry out an operation for a community fund pooling that was hosting a high-profile trading strategy through computer program named 'Jigsaw'.

The company needed only to persuade investors to invest in the fund. In addition, Gelfman is accused of embezzling the remaining pooled monies after he "staged a fake computer hack created to hide trading losses and misappropriation", the court says.

The GBI will have to pay more than $550,000 back to their customers, and the Nicholas Gelfman will pay $492,000 himself. The court also imposed permanent trading and registration bans on GBI and Gelfman. The CFTC said it will continue to fight vigorously for the protection of customers and to ensure the wrongdoers are held accountable.
