Bitflyer Exchange May Freeze Accounts Caught Manipulating Prices

Japan’s Bitflyer crypto exchange announces that accounts that are caught manipulating prices may be frozen. Meanwhile GMO, Japanese Internet giant group, has released quarterly earnings for its crypto exchange subsidiary. Presently, it intends to borrow some BTC from its customers.

The Bitflyer exchange, which is Japan’s largest crypto exchange in terms of volume, is still not accepting account signups. The exchange voluntarily took this decision on receiving a business improvement order from the Financial Services Agency (FSA), the country’s top financial regulator.

In accordance with their Terms of Use, on last Thursday, Bitflyer announced that it may freeze accounts that are observed to have intentionally performed market manipulation. It added that it will continue to do its best in order to build a sound trading environment.

According to the FSA, the business improvement order that Bitflyer received contains 10 measures to ensure reliable and appropriate business operation. The exchange has been delaying withdrawals and deposits as it is trying to comply with the FSA’s order. On July 23, the exchange submitted its improvement plan to the FSA.
