New submissions by a South African regulator, the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and liquidators have exposed the web of lies and deceptive tactics that were used by Mirror Trading International (MTI) CEO Johann Steynberg and others to perpetuate the Ponzi scheme.

In its report filed with the South African court, the regulator also exposes the true extent of losses that were incurred by the bitcoin investment company.

For instance, in what the FSCA calls the “first period,” MTI had a “total of nearly 51 bitcoin (that) were deposited with Belize-based forex broker FXChoice, but 22 — or 43% — of these coins were lost by the traders.” However, at this point there was “no multi-level marketing involved.”.

Meanwhile, MTI liquidators have similarly submitted “evidence” that exposes the bitcoin investment company’s actual shareholding structure.
