CFTC Charges California Firm and CEO With Fraud, Misappropriation of Digital Assets

According to the complaint, from September 2017 through January 2018, Vista falsely advertised that it would trade customers’ digital assets and earn a 2.5% daily return or “double in just 80 days.” The company said it would trade customers’ bitcoin and ether using “Robot Traders” that the CFTC said it never had access to, and instead engaged in a Ponzi scheme with new and old customer funds.
