James Ramsden QC obtains first UK freezing order over Bitcoin

On 15 & 22 August James Ramsden QC obtained what is understood to be the first UK injunction restraining dealings in Bitcoin. Instructed by a Chinese property investor the claim was against a London based FCA regulated FX trader specialising in the conversion of Crypto-currency into US dollars and Sterling. The freezing orders addressed the important issue of how Bitcoin is traded cross-border and the power of UK courts over that trading activity.
