In response to allegations from users of unlawful transactions of currency pairs with the DMG currency on FTX just at that time, the still operational FTX platform issued a safety notice. The trades were carried out using accounts that were established by hackers, according to 3Commas as well as FTX. The API keys, though, “were not obtained via 3Commas rather from outside the 3Commas system,” the 3Commas blog claims.
