February 9, 2022 (Toronto, Ontario) – The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) is warning Canadian investors not to be fooled by Hashminer.io.

Investors have recently contacted IIROC asking about companies that claim to require account insurance through regulatory bodies like IIROC, including companies doing business as Hashminer.io or possibly as SaveFunds-Trading.com.

IIROC-regulated investment firms and individuals must meet our high standards and deal fairly, honestly and in good faith with Canadian investors. We urge Canadian investors to exercise caution when dealing with non IIROC-regulated firms.

IIROC also does not play a role in providing insurance or approving withdrawals from investor accounts. Any company asking for payment or to increase the amount on deposit with them before approving a withdrawal is likely fraudulent.

Certain crypto assets have generated a lot of hype. All investors must be informed and ask themselves important questions before purchasing higher-risk investment products that do not trade on stock exchanges.

Canadian investors should always confirm investment firms are registered with IIROC or with the CSA.

Investors can also check the background, qualifications and any disciplinary history of investment advisors registered with IIROC by checking the free AdvisorReport.
