BitMEX former CEO Arthur Hayes surrendered to US officials in Hawaii. Hayes had made a statement earlier that he would surrender.
Arthur Hayes has faced several charges in the US for using the cryptocurrency exchange for money laundering. Hayes was released in exchange for $ 10 million in court proceedings.
Hayes surrendered six months after prosecutors in New York accused him and BitMEX’s co-founders of conspiring to launder money, Bloomberg reported. According to court documents published last month, the date of April 6 was set for delivery.
Last October, BitMEX and its co-founders Hayes, Samuel Reed and Ben Delo were accused by the US Department of Justice of conspiracy to violate the Bank Privacy Act and the law.
