While crypto markets have shook up the traditional financial world they are still vulnerable to market manipulation; recently crypto exchanges have turned to traditional methods to help stop pump and dump schemes, insider trading and fake orders; exchanges have started to enlist the services of Nasdaq and NICE Actimize to better protect their companies; research showed that during a 6 month period in 2018 there were thousands of potential actions to try to boost more than 300 cryptocurrencies; showing regulators that they can handle these issues better will also help them to become more legitimate as crypto markets are still under the microscope.
