CoinFLEX situation. On June 24, the exchange suspended withdrawals, citing “extreme market conditions.” CoinFLEX CEO Mark Lamb said that investor Roger Ver owed the platform 47 million in USDC stablecoins. The exchange later unveiled a recovery plan, under which it was supposed to issue rvUSD tokens for a similar amount.

However, on July 9, CoinFLEX appealed to the Hong Kong International Arbitration Center (HKIAC) to recover $84 million from Vera. The exchange’s co-founders pointed to an initially incorrect damage estimate that does not take FLEX tokens into account.
