US president Donald Trump’s former campaign strategist Steve Banon is under scrutiny as his cryptocurrency offering is being investigated by the Feds, according to a tweet from Scott Stedman.

Stedman in his tweet said that Feds are investigating cryptocurrency offering by Steve Bannon and Guo Wengui’s company GTV Media. The company began selling an online currency called “GDollars” in May and, according to my sources, raised millions. FEC never issued them a licence to sell digital currency.

An archived version of the website shows that the company managed by Wengui and Bannon offered “GDollars” and allowed consumers in the US and elsewhere to purchase up to $999,999 of the digital currency, his thread of tweets added.

Wengui’s large online following pushed the purchase of the digital currency – which purportedly was to be used to purchase upgrades/send tips on GTV Media’s network of platforms, he further said.
