News Tech: Following the suspension of withdrawals for a subset of customers last week, the Brazilian cryptocurrency investment business Bluebenx updated its statement about the current liquidity issues it is facing. The exchange was allegedly the subject of a “very active attack,” and the operations suspension was required as part of the security procedure to handle the repercussions, according to the first reason for this resolution.

However, the alleged agent defrauded the company of these funds. Additionally, the attacker converted the 25 million BENX paid into USDT using the exchange’s liquidity pools, depriving it of all of its stablecoin liquidity.

Since then, it has backtracked on this assertion and offered a whole different defence. According to Bluebenx, the issue was brought on by a listing scam in which the company agreed to pay for the listing of its own currency, BENX, on an additional platform. According to a statement provided by the company to Livecoins, a local source, Bluebenx had to pay a third party knowledgeable about the unidentified listing exchange $200,000 and 25 million Benx for this listing opportunity.

The company stated:

To ensure the security and reassurance for our investors, Bluebenx took controversial measures to restrict access to the accounts by terminating some of the employees and vendors with privileged access.
