Furthermore, the three co-founders siphoned the funds from HDR’s accounts. After they became conscious of the investigations by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). And also the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Distribution surge indicates Defendants looting

HDR Global Trading Limited representative explained that the Pavel Pogodin of Consensus Law has filed a series of increasingly spurious claims against them and others in the cryptocurrency industry.

Moreover, Pavel Pogodin believes that prior to the CFTC and DoJ crackdown, Bitmex co-founders were seeking to make its funds unavailable for the group’s future judgments against it.

Profit distributions at a rate of over $440 million in just three months. This is clearly not executed in the ordinary course of business. As they represent a $1.761 million annual profit distribution rate, which money Defendant HDR simply does not earn.

Moreover, such a remarkable surge in proceeds distributions clearly shows that Defendants are looting Bitmex Insurance.
