A first for Singapore
Grace Leong the Straits Times reports that the company B2C2 brought an action against the company for exchange of Bitcoins Quoine in July. The reasons for this action relate to transactions that have been unfairly forged, which resulted in the decrease of the value of this digital currency.
B2C2, a company based in London, says that the financial institutions and major investors trust their company for their transparency.
