Trevon James, a former investor and promoter of the BitConnect crypto currency project, said that the agents of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation interrogated him about his involvement in the company's activities. This is reported by CoinDesk.
James said that in 10 days he should "testify and tell about his role in BitConnect", but did not specify in which format the hearings will be held. He also added that he never had information about the company's plans and the road map.
According to the ex-promoter, he expects that the testimony will be in the same format as his one and a half hour "conversation" with FBI agents, during which he told about his experience with BitConnect as a user.
It's really about the SEC. Testimony is really important you know, for the entire crypto space because ... it's about securities. Is Bitconnect a security, are cryptocurrencies, can they be considered securities? That's what it's about, it's not about whether I scammed people.

It should be noted that in the middle of January the crypto exchange project BitConnect announced the closure of the program of lending and exchange. The reason for this step was the two official resolutions on the termination of activity from the regulators of the states of Texas and North Carolina. Subsequently, two lawsuits were also filed against BitConnect.
