Coinbase and other crypto exchanges get probed by New York's Attorney General

Eric Schneiderman

New York's top cop is launching an inquiry into cryptocurrency exchanges amid rising concern about the nascent digital markets.

Schneiderman has begun a probe of major cryptocurrency trading platforms as part of a broader effort to protect investors and consumers. "Yet too often, consumers don't have the basic facts they need to assess the fairness, integrity, and security of these trading platforms", said Schneiderman. "Our Virtual Markets Integrity Initiative sets out to change that".

Schneiderman on Tuesday launched a fact-finding inquiry into the policies and practices of 13 platforms used by consumers to trade virtual currencies like bitcoin and ether.

Cryptocurrency trading platforms now often lack the basic protections of traditional investing platforms and can differ widely from one another, making it hard for prospective users to evaluate their actual risks, according to Schneiderman. They include Coinbase Inc., Gemini Trust Co., bitFlyer USA Inc., iFinex Inc., Bitstamp USA Inc., Payward Inc., Bittrex Inc., Circle Internet Financial Ltd., Binance Ltd., Elite Way Developments, Gate Technology Inc., itBit Trust Co. and Huobi Global Ltd. These are 1) ownership and control, 2) basic operation and fees, 3) trading policies and procedures, 4) outages and other suspensions of trading, 5) internal controls, and 6) privacy and money laundering. Simultaneously, the AG's office announced that it has sent letters to 13 cryptocurrency exchanges, asking the platforms to disclose information on their "operations, internal controls, and safeguards to protect customer assets".
