In April 2017, Quoine reversed 7 trades placed by B2C2’s software, which mistakenly sold 1 ether at 10BTC (~250 times higher than the then market rate). Quoine argued that B2C2 was aware of the incorrectly priced trades and took advantage. However, the court dismissed Quione’s argument, as the B2C2 software would not be aware of this mistake when executing orders. On 24 Feb 20, the Singapore Supreme Court has ruled Quoine a violation of breach in contract and exchange must now pay B2C2 damage fees (to be decided in the next hearing).
