According to court documents shared with cryptocurrency publication The Block, BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes could surrender to US authorities in Hawaii next month.
Hayes and BitMEX co-owners Greg Dwyer and Ben Delo, as well as Head of Business Development Greg Dwyer, were charged in October with “willfully failing to establish, implement, and maintain an adequate anti-money laundering (‘AML’) program” for the cryptocurrency derivatives exchange.
While Reed has already been arrested, the other three men are at large. According to court transcripts from a February 9 hearing, Hayes is in Singapore. Dwyer’s Twitter account lists his location like Bermuda. Delo is a British national.
With regards to Hayes, Assistant US Attorney Jessica Greenwood told the US District Court of the Southern District of New York: “We, with respect to defendant Hayes, have discussed a surrender date of April 6, 2021, in Hawaii.” Hayes would then appear virtually before a judge.
