The OKEx exchange was again in the spotlight this Friday. First, information was received about questionable operations with bitcoin futures, and later it was added that a trader whose position, estimated at several million dollars, was eliminated, threatened to commit suicide in front of the company's office, claiming that the liquidation was made illegally. This is reported by News BTC.

According to Coin Panda on Twitter, as a result of operations on the exchange, the Chinese trader lost about $ 10 million in bitcoins. The liquidation was caused by a 30-40% drop of the bitcoin futures price for a short time. Traders, which don't use stop order daily weren't ready for this.
According to Coin Panda, a man who does not agree with this policy, came to the OKEx office with a bottle of dichlorophos, and promised to drink it. Whether he made any demands is unknown.
OKEx has not yet commented on the situation, but earlier the company acknowledged the fact of manipulating the price of futures and promised to roll back all transactions until the first suspicious application was placed.
