Prosecutors, National Investigation Service investigators, and DANS law enforcement agents, together with foreign intelligence agencies, have officially started searching the Bulgarian office buildings of the firm that trades cryptocurrencies across the world.

The scheme’s main coordinators are Bulgarian residents, and the operation was conducted mainly from the Bulgarian region,” Attorney General Siika Mileva stated in a statement. “Proof has been collected that an individual who utilized the platform and transmitted cryptocurrencies has been formally declared a terrorist financing person,” the statement says.

The investigation into the crypto firm’s activities in the nation was initiated a few months ago after international services discovered fraudulent transactions primarily directed at flouting sanctions placed by the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States on Russian banks, as well as businesses and Russian people.

Nexo stated that it is cooperating with relevant agencies and regulatory bodies

It went on to say that, due to the recent regulatory crackdown on cryptocurrency, some regulators have recently implemented the kick first, later ask questions strategy. It boundaries on conspiracy to commit in corrupt governments, but this too shall pass.

The FBI has been probing the Bulgarian crypto bank for a $4 billion hole in its financial statements, fraudulent economic exercise – lending in exchange for securities – and updates of misuse of its clients’ equities and goods.

According to the DFPI official statement, Nexo provides the appropriate annual interest rate of up to 36% on stored crypto assets, which were substantially higher than the rates on short-term investment-grade fixed-income instruments or financial institution savings. The Nexo platform has been utilized for 3.6 million transactions bringing the total to more than $94 billion in the last five years, according to a spokesperson for Bulgarian Chief Prosecutor Siika Mileva.
