Bitcoin Cash CoinBase Lawsuit Gets Temporarily Dismissed By Judge 

Sometime ago, CoinBase was accused of insider trading. This was right after the exchange listed Bitcoin Cash (BCH). During a hearing on Tuesday, a United States district Judge Vince Chhabria, dismissed the suit against CoinBase that was filed by Jeffrey Berk. According to Jeffrey Berk, Bitcoin Cash was traded by insiders before it was listed on the platform thus hurting other investors. Part of the original complain that was filed in March is as follows: “Not that this is a surprise but some people were tipped off about the listing of Bitcoin Cash beforehand. Those insiders swamped GDAX and CoinBase creating sell orders and reducing liquidity while paying a fair price for the cryptocurrency. Unfortunately, this drove up the price of BCH for non-insiders to an unfair mark”. While dismissing the suit, the judge said: “The suit doesn’t have sufficient legal basis. It leaves a reader wondering what CoinBase would have done to roll out Bitcoin Cash more smoothly.” SEE ALSO: Bitcoin Cas..
