Bloomberg has reported that the US Department of Justice and the SEC are looking into the nature of the interaction between the Digital Currency Group and its subsidiary Genesis Trading OTC platform.
Investigators have reportedly interviewed employees and requested company documents. The SEC is conducting a similar investigation at an early stage.
Officials have declined to comment and no charges have been filed at the time of writing.
A company representative has commented:
“DCG has always conducted its business legally. We have no information or reason to believe that the company is under any investigation.”
