Blockchain analytics firm, Chainalysis, reported some downbeat price predictions based on its tracking of funds acquired by the massive PlusToken ponzi.

Roger Ver’s exchange received criticism from the crypto community, including many Bitcoin Cash adherents, for implementing trading of the new HEX token. HEX is often described as a scam for its design, which favors and enriches its creator, Richard Heart. HEX is also backed by former BitConnect shill, Trevon James. The exchange’s CEO said on Twitter he was listing HEX “out of spite” for Bitcoiners.
