The main news of cryptocurrencies on the morning of September 2
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) want to create a new reporting regime for cryptocurrency-focused hedge funds.
Information about this, along with a request for comments on the initiative (until October 11, 2022), appeared on the official resources of the regulators.
We are talking about changing the form of PF, which was introduced after the financial crisis of 2008. Market participants use it to confidentially provide regulators with information about the risks of working with certain assets. Right now there are no items about digital assets in PF. The initiative of the SEC and the CFTC is aimed at adding information about cryptocurrencies to the form.
Fraudsters hacked the multi-chain aggregator of decentralized crypto exchanges KyberSwap. Information about this appeared in the blog of the project.
The attackers managed to gain access to the assets of platform users for $265 million. The KyberSwap team promised to compensate for all losses. Also, representatives of the platform approached the hacker with an offer. If the attacker returns the stolen, he will get 15% of the amount.
According to the KyberSwap team, they have enough information at their disposal to track down the scammer. If the hacker agrees to the deal, the developers will “write off” the incident as a bug detection as part of the bounty program.

According to the publication, the crypto wallet will operate on the basis of the Hedera Hashgraph network. Also, the media write that the company has already registered the Wallypto trademark and logo.
