An exchange verified that they received too many demands from Swiss brokers in the previous ten days, asking to liquidate Bitcoins worth billions of dollars as they are worried Switzerland’s authorities may freeze the funds. The company stated all of the demands were for $2 billion or more.
The executive of the platform stated they generally get one query in a month for big deals, and he added;
We’ve had like 5 or six in the previous two weeks. None have actually come off yet– they’ve sort of tipped over at the last minute, which is not unusual – – but we’ve never ever had this much interest.
The executive likewise mentioned;
We have one person– I do not understand who he is, however he came through a broker– and they’re like, ‘‘ we wish to sell 125,000 bitcoin’. And I’m like, ‘‘ what? That’s$6 billion, people’. And they’re like, ‘‘ yeah, we’re going to send it to a business in Australia.
On the other side, the manager of Switzerland’s market has declined to pass remarks on crypto transaction volumes.
Digital assets are subject to the exact same sanctions as troubled the conventional holdings of Russian users and people, so funds of sanctioned individuals must be frozen in Switzerland, stated the country’s Secretariat of financial affairs (SECO) in an e-mail.
