Former employee of Merrill Lynch, Kyung Soo Kim, has been firedĀ at the request of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). According to Finance Feeds, Kim mined cryptocurrencies during off-hours without the notification required in such cases.

From March 20, 2014 to April 10, 2018, Kyung Soo Kim worked as a securities representative at the Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated association. On March 14, 2018, Merrill Lynch dismissed Kim from the job, including due to "the failure to provide information about business activities outside the company."

It turned out that in December 2017, Kim, without notifying the bank, founded the company S Corporation to take up mining of cryptocurrencies. Kim opened an account in the bank and credited it with a certain amount, signed a contract on behalf of S Corporation with the manufacturer of equipment for mining and settled with him as part of the contract.

According to the FINRA rules, registered participants of the securities industry must report any third-party activities and adhere to high standards of honor in commercial activities.

For this reason, Kyung Soo Kim was suspended from any FINRA activity for a month, and also fined $ 5,000.
