"The coordination of certain G10-currencies took place in chatrooms."


Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentleman, the financial services industry in a nutshell.

Authorities in Switzerland have fined five banks, including Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Barclays, for fixing foreign exchange trading through cartels dubbed "Three Way Banana Split" and "Essex Express".

...

"Participants in the 'Essex Express' cartel (from 2009 to 2012) were traders of Barclays, MUFG Bank, RBS and UBS.

"The coordination of certain G10-currencies took place in chatrooms."

Barclays was fined £21.5m while RBS was ordered to pay £17.8m. The banks were yet to give their responses to the additional penalties.

Fining RBS £17.8 million is like docking a kid's pocket money by 50p for a week.

    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
