BitMEX responds to UK FCA warning: assessment of situation is stepping up

According to The Block, the Financial Market Conduct Authority (FCA) previously warned the BitMEX trading platform that BitMEX has been targeting British investors but has not been authorized. A BitMEX spokesman said: "We are working closely with consultants to assess the situation." Sources have revealed that the FCA may issue more such warning notices to prevent crypto trading, and Deribit, CoinFLEX and Bybit may follow closely . A search on the FCA website did not show that the three exchanges were registered.
