Cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex reported on measures taken to eliminate the consequences of the incident on the CLAM market, during which many users suffered losses.

The price of CLAM on May 26, 2019 fell by almost 70%, which resulted in a large number of uncovered marginal positions. The amount of losses of users lending to the positions of others amounted to 1800 BTC or more than $ 9 million at the current rate.

We fully recognize that the situation could have been handled more professionally and know that we need to regain your trust. 53 customers have been fully repaid through these initiatives, and we know this isn’t nearly enough.



More than 1,000 people with arrears of 0.0047 BTC or less received full compensation. Losses of other clients so far have only been partially compensated.

Also in April, the exchange agrees to pay commission for lending from June 6, 2019. In the future, Poloniex will continue to pay commissions until the debt is fully paid.

Even though reimbursing trading fees may not be meaningful for all customers, we are committed to continuing it as many of you are actively trading on our platform and accelerating your repayment as a result.
