The operators of a global cryptocurrency-based Ponzi scheme have been charged with fraud and money laundering following a United States Homeland Security Investigations probe.

According to an announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice, four of the five alleged operators of AirBit Club, which allegedly netted tens of millions of dollars from victims, were arrested and due to appear in court on Aug. 18, while the fifth was arrested in Panama and is awaiting extradition to the U.S.

The scheme was launched in late 2015 and sold as a multi-level marketing club in the cryptocurrency industry. The defendants purportedly hosted lavish presentations to encourage investors to part with cash, promising guaranteed daily returns from cryptocurrency mining and trading.
