PlusToken Effect: Alleged Asian Exit Scam to Blame for Market Decline? In the last week of November, the saga of an alleged crypto Ponzi scheme that has been lingering for more than half a year took a new turn.

The researcher suggested that the embezzled funds have been gradually dumped on crypto exchanges, potentially suppressing Bitcoin market price. Here’s what is known about the monumental scheme that has yet to be officially confirmed.
