    Hmm, are we thinking there are downsides to a completely unregulated market dominated by one company?

      Exactly. I don’t understand how people don’t get it. If it’s not illegal doesn’t mean it’s right.

      Deregulation is the best!

      Now let me go brush my teeth with lead based toothpaste and expect no consequences!

      I would argue that they did nothing wrong (you may be able to argue that it is morally wrong). There are no “insiders” in crypto. There is no head.

    The question I ask myself regarding this is, “is this a problem?” Crypto has no insiders. If you plan on doing something that is really going to impact the market positively or negatively, you are free to act on that however you wish.

      Makes sense, it’s not like bitcoin is a company where employees know about the revenue/fundamentals etc and can predict whether the valuation will rise/fall

      Except that in practical terms most buying and selling is being done on a couple of big exchanges and the employees of those exchanges can definitely know in advance about changes that will move the entire market

      They will charge the CEO of Bitcoin soon but he is not answering his phone.

    There is no crime here.

    Insider trading is not an SEC matter since this is an asset NOT a security.

    It’s merely an HR issue (for the employees) and a PR issue (for the firm).

    Can't wait for people to file complaints with the FTC and then learn they don't care. 😂

    At this point it isn't a liquid asset either. It's failing to be anything at this point

    Furthermore as coinbase entered into an agreement with other secured asset organizations I think they are not exempt from insider trading.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some movement from the ranks regarding this
