The company announced on Thursday that Hayes and chief technical officer Samuel Reed – the latter who was arrested by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) recently – have stepped back from all executive management responsibilities with immediate effect. Greg Dwyer, head of business development, is also taking a leave of absence.

Vivien Khoo, chief operating officer of 100x Group, Bitmex’s parent company, takes over as interim CEO while commercial director Ben Radclyffe assumes increased client relationship responsibilities and oversight of financial products.

“These changes to our executive leadership mean we can focus on our core business of offering superior trading opportunities for all our clients…whilst maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance,” David Wong, chairman of 100x Group, said in a statement.

“We have an exceptional senior leadership team who are well placed to continue the growth and development of the 100x Group, including completion of the Bitmex user verification programme,” Wong added.

Bitmex was last week charged by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for operating illegally and for breaching anti-money laundering rules. At the same time, the DoJ indicted Hayes and his leadership team for “violating the Bank Secrecy Act and conspiring to violate the Bank Secrecy Act.”

More than 37,000 bitcoin, worth around $387 million, left the exchange just 24 hours after the charges were announced, as fretful investors sought to secure their funds.
