$ 850 million dollars in misappropriated customer funds or the Bitcoin exchange Bitfinex, as well as the Stable-Coin-company-Stable-Limited to fight back against the lawsuit the New York attorney General. [The background to the Bitfinex drama to be found here, among other things].
A Bitcoin exchange strikes back
Because, as is clear from a Letter of the public Prosecutor's office: she sees herself not in responsibility, at least not in the U.S. state of New York. Accordingly, it is on the part of lawyers:
[ ... ] the New York Prosecutor's office has initiated this special procedure supposedly to protect "New York investors." But the [New York attorney General] has taken two crypto-currency to take to target that have nothing to do with New York investors – the company does not allow New Yorkers on their platforms, and they neither advertise [there], nor will they entertain in a different way shops. [The Prosecutor] has identified in any way [...] "the victims" in New York (or, to mention it: anywhere else).

In this light, the objective of Bitcoin appears to the Left of the ban is particularly absurd.
