FinCEN’s controversial proposed crypto wallet rule has been frozen – along with all agency rulemaking – by new US president Joe Biden.
If enacted, the rule would force exchanges to keep personal details on customers transferring more than $3,000 in crypto per day, as well as file currency transaction reports for transactions of over $10,000.
The administration had only provided a 15 day comment period on the rule, just a quarter of the more-common 60 days.
A double-spend transaction has been identified on the Bitcoin blockchain by BitMEX Research, with a value of just $21.
The research team provided mixed messages on the origin of the double-spend, at first claiming it was not the product of a common “replace-by-fee” transaction, but later backtracking on the statement.
A recent court filing has shown that Tether and Bitfinex have provided almost all of the documents requested by the New York Attorney General, in a drawn-out court case between the parties.
Tether and Bitfinex had attempted to avoid producing the documents throughout the proceedings in 2020, before being ordered to do so by the court.
