The Post-Hayes Era: Regulatory Compliance Uber AllesBitMEX stated via its website on Nov 12, that the new partnership intends to expand the platform’s ability to monitor trades and hence “screen out bad actors,” as well as boost its AML capacity. In a sharp departure from its prior position on issues of regulatory compliance and customer security, the statement contained references to “proactive monitoring” and a “safe and secure trading environment.” Previously under Hayes, the platform’s position was significantly less conciliatory toward regulators, often holding a hard stance against US financial jurisdiction and the attitude of financial regulators toward crypto. Hayes famously wrote in 2018 that bitcoin is not used to facilitate money laundering, effectively arguing against the need for AML regulation to be enforced on all crypto trading platforms. Hinting at BitMEX’s enforced change of direction, 100x Group Chief Compliance Officer Malcolm Wright said:
“The selection of Eventus to support our critical trade surveillance and AML functions is an important part of our plans to mature our compliance capabilities, with a vision of leading the industry on best practice crypto-asset compliance. Eventus has extensive expertise and experience not only with digital asset exchanges but also within the traditional financial sector. ”
