In total, Australians have lost 2.1 million Australian dollars on fraud related to cryptocurrencies. That could be compared to 340 million Australian dollars that the Australians lost to other types of fraud in the same year, Finder reports.

New crypto exchange for institutional investors

The London-based financial technology firm LMAX Exchange Group has decided to open the world’s first crypto exchange for institutional investors. The exchange will be called LMAX Digital and will have five different cryptocurrencies – bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin, ethereum, and ripple – which institutional investors can trade.
