By CCN: ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees made a valid observation on Twitter today, pointing out that there’s some degree of irony in the charges potentially facing embattled Bitcoin exchange Bitfinex: Tether had the cash reserves, despite wide speculation that the company had issued far more crypto tokens than it could settle. Ironically, this latest Bitfinex drama may be the one thing that disproves the “Bitfinex’ed” conspiracy theory. If USD in that amount was seized/stolen/held by Crypto Capital, then the USD backing Tether DID actually exist after all. @Bitfinexed claim was that USD never existed. — Erik Voorhees (@ErikVoorhees) April 26,
