      Thats quite a hefty fine for Cysec, they used to dish out $5k or $10K fines..

      What’s the point in handing out fines, they should just relinquish their CYSEC licence. There are too many of these Isreali buckeshop binary operations in Cyprus and they are tarnishing the industry and hiding under multiple brands. If I were CYSEC I would find all Isreali binary operation and cull them like pigs in an abattoir.
