  • In a notice posted late last week, law firm Miller Thomson said as of this month, there are $305.66 million in total claims against QuadrigaCX.
  • The Trust Dilemma: The collapse of QuadrigaCX, which turned out to be a Ponzi scheme, has had a significant impact on the trust investors place in cryptocurrency exchanges.
