Bitfinex Hackers Arrested #shorts



The Justice Department has seized around $3.6 billion in cryptocurrency tied to the 2016 hack of Bitfinex, a virtual currency exchange, and arrested a New York couple charged with conspiring to launder billions of dollars’ worth of the stolen bitcoin.

Looks like cryptocurrency is not as hard to track as criminals would have hoped.

Question for you: Do you think a crackdown on cryptocurrency crimes will thus affect ransomware crime?
