FMA warns against FX Crypto Club
Today’s warning comes one week after the regulator warned investors of the activities of FX Crypto Club, a Marshall Islands-based broker that has been offering financial products in the country without authorization.
Echoing previous warnings from the regulator, the independent financial regulator noted that FX Crypto Club offers customers CFDs that allegedly give them exposure to cryptocurrency instruments.
