US Chipmaker Nvidia Fined $5.5 Million Over Crypto Mining, Bitcoin Rises

US-based chipmaker Nvidia will reportedly pay $5.5 million to settle charges that it unlawfully obscured details of how many of its graphics cards were sold to cryptocurrency miners.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the charges and a settlement with the company, IANS reported. The order claims that Nvidia misled investors by reporting a huge boost in revenue related to “gaming”, while hiding how much its success relied on the far more volatile crypto market, according to a report by The Verge.

In another development, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced on Thursday that the US District Court for the Southern District of New York has ordered Bitmex’s founders to pay a total of $30 million dollars “for illegally operating a cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform and anti-money laundering violations”.
