Is Bitfinex manipulating the price of Bitcoin?
Bitfinex has been accused of being complicit in manipulating the price of Bitcoin. Each time Tether issues new USDT tokens the price of Bitcoin tends to spike. At the end of November Tether transferred 30 million USDT tokens to the Bitfinex stock exchange. 20 minutes later, the price of Bitcoin skyrocketed from $6,500 to $7,200. Is this just a coincidence or is there something deeper going on?
