Subsequently, Eisenberg exposed himself as the attacker.He claimed that the exploit was a highly profitable trading strategy and that it was legal open market activities.

On Dec. 27, Eisenberg was arrested in Puerto Rico and charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with one count every one of commodities fraud and manipulation for his attack on the platform.

The FBI’s charges were followed up by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
There are two counts of market manipulation.

On Jan. 20 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) managed a further disaster for Eisenberg with charges of violations relating to hostile to fraud and market manipulation arrangements of U.S. Securities Regulations.
