Such a strong need to hide all that is acquired back-breaking labor, have arisen in the life of a comedian is not just. The fact that 81-year-old Cosby was previously found guilty on three counts in the rape case.

The Korean investor has exchanged their bitcoins, worth 2.3 million euros on a pile of counterfeit bills

The hapless investor from South Korea turned out to be a victim of fraud. Reportedly, the victim during the transaction exchanged their bitcoins, worth 2.3 million euros in counterfeit cash. The deception was discovered immediately, but only after the victim was found in a pile of fake banknotes new banknotes of 500 euros.

The fact that the 500 Euro banknote is quite difficult to find in our time on-site Ersouza. From 2016, the bill was gradually withdrawn from circulation by decree of the European Central Bank and replaced videosevennine €100 and €20. The abolition of the biggest Euro banknotes explained by the fight against the financing of terrorist activities and illegal employment.

As shown by the described case, such action was not taken in vain. The South Korean investor, whose name has been kept secret, met with the citizen of Serbia in July this year to sell their bitcoins. The meeting was held at the hotel in nice, France. As soon as the man found a fresh print on the printer 500-Ki, he immediately informed the police about the incident. Soon the Serbian scammer has been arrested in Cannes, where he lived in a luxury hotel. At the time of arrest on the man’s hand flashed a new watch, worth € 100,000.

Apparently, these two meetings discussed a potential investment in a company, so the crook and managed to get the deal done with fake money. Serb accused of fraud and involvement in organized criminal networks, said attorney Gerard pod.

The moral of the story is the fraud of Fiat money has reached colossal proportions. Blame the ongoing issue of new banknotes. In developing countries this problem is even more acute, because counterfeit operations are controlled by hostile governments to destabilize the economy.

This is another reason for the popularity of cryptocurrency. You cannot copy a Bitcoin. A network of thousands of nodes checks for each transaction, so fake tokens no chance to exist.

New manipulation? 18 000 bitcoins transferred to the address associated with BitMEX

Approximately 18,000 bitcoins (BTC) has recently been transferred to the purse, which, presumably, is associated with BitMEX, a major cryptocurrency trading platform. According CryptoCompare, the total value of these coins now exceeds 114 million dollars.

Seventeen different cryptocurrency wallets have been involved in this major transfer BTC: the first transaction took place at 4:50 am new York time, the transfer was made 10 BTC on cryptocurrency wallet that is associated with BitMEX. Less than half an hour 16 media gave the same address a total of 17,990 BTC.

A number of Twitter users suggested that cryptocurrency trading platform BitMEX may be involved in the market manipulation. It is noteworthy that the massive consolidation of bitcoins to the wallet BitMEX happened just a few hours before the price of the flagship cryptocurrency has recovered from a drop below $ 6,000.

Although many cryptocurrency exchanges nor been accused of attempts to manipulate market prices, in this case that seems unlikely since 18 000 BTC to the wallet BitMEX only 0.1% of all bitcoins in circulation currently. Often crypto “whales” such as a Trustee of Mt Gox, Nobuaki Kobayashi, appeal larger amounts.

In the case of BitMEX it seems that the platform is trying to bring a large number of coins on a cold wallet for security reasons. Bithumb, lost because of a burglary of $ 30 million in June, has already done something similar.

Another possible reason BitMEX moves a huge amount of coins, may be to attempt to increase liquidity on the exchange.
