- With the arrest of the Russian hacker Alexander Vinnik in Greece, justice seems to be the brain behind big digital hacks and many millions of people on the internet.
In total, he would have washed money for $ 4 billion in criminal money through his illegal transactions.
Vinnk is the former pacemaker behind the BTC-e internet platform for the trading of digital coins such as bitcoins, which was frequently used in the underworld for arms and drug transactions.
For example, Vinnik would also be involved in the theft of more than $ 250 million in coins of MtGox bitcoin platform.
The Rus would be the head of a much larger criminal organization that has been active worldwide since 2011. Shortly after his arrest, several websites linked to BTC-e were released on the web.
