Other jurisdictions may require issuers to freeze illicit assets
Wu said that he did not trace the whereabouts of the 1.6799 million Hong Kong dollar worth of JPEX cryptocurrency was transferred, so it was impossible to know whether the behavior was abnormal. He pointed out that in other jurisdictions, law enforcement agencies can require companies issuing cryptocurrencies to freeze assets suspected of being illegally acquired, but I don't know if Hong Kong has relevant practices, and hopes that law enforcement agencies can protect the assets of suffering owners by any means. He also called for investors to buy and sell on compliant trading platforms.
As for the 10 trillion cryptocurrency JPC issued by JPEX, the on-chain data released by Wu Jezhuang shows that 99.52% of JPCs are concentrated in four addresses, and no more than 0.5% are located outside the other.

Casting does not accept infinite reincarnation
The platform launched a referendum on the relevant plan on Thursday (21st), but some bitter owners told "Hong Kong 01" that the referendum was "good" and could not vote for the election and did not accept the plan. Even if the "do not accept" button is pressed, the voting option will still pop up on the webpage again, and after receiving "do not accept" for the second time, only one "agree" button will pop up on the page, like "forcing you to agree", questioning the falsification of the referendum.
According to the video provided by the interviewee, after pressing the "do not accept" button, the page pops up again with the option, indicating that the user can consider it again. After the user presses the "Accept" button for the second time, the page pops up with the word "Success", but the page still displays "Can consider whether to accept this plan again" and a "Agree" button. The film shows that only 29% of users accepted the plan at the time.
