An anonymous source said that the largest South Korean cryptocurrency exchange was raided because of alleged links between the Chairman of the South Korean exchange, Lee Jong-Hoon, and several fraudulent transactions.

It is noteworthy that the exchange is under investigation after it was accused of pre-selling its own bxa tokens worth more than 30 billion won to investors, and then refusing to list the token, which allegedly led to losses for depositors.

In addition, at this time, neither the police nor Bithumb have yet released statements about the RAID. Although, as reported, law enforcement officers are still searching and investigating the case.
