The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Washington’s consumer watchdog, has filed a lawsuit against two businesses it accuses of operating cryptocurrency pyramid schemes.

The companies allegedly promised customers who made an initial investment of just $100 (£71) that they could earn an $80,000 (£56,938) monthly income from doing so – although payouts seldom amounted to anything like that.
