To delay the SHTF moment, they are currently:
- delaying BTC payouts
- paying out by incoming funds
- restricting outflow of USDT from their exchange to Kraken
- artificially keeping USDT margin rates on their exchange at 30% PA to incentivise suckers depositing coins to buy up USDT
Guess the catalyst will be when BTCUSD heads south and they can only attract less suckers, when their BTCUSDT pump cannot be sustained any more.
