A French court has sentenced Alexandre Vinik to five years in prison. The 41-year-old Russian became known as the founder of the cryptocurrency trading site BTC-e. Hundreds of thousands of euros of racketeering virus have been found guilty of money laundering charges.
In fact, Finnick swam a much tougher sentence because they tried unsuccessfully to prove the creation and spread of the extortion virus, Loki, that lasted between 2016 and 2017. The Russian was arrested in a Greek resort in the summer of 2017 after an international arrest warrant was issued.
BTC was founded in 2011, and according to Americans, it was almost a general money laundering service where all the loot from internet crime could be exchanged for real money.
The United States and Russia also asked the Greek authorities to extradite Finik, which put significant diplomatic pressure on them. Athena eventually chose the compromise and delivered the man to France. In the end, only one of the fourteen indictments has been sufficiently proven by the French attorney general’s office.
In recent years, the United States has reported seizures of hundreds of millions of dollars and New Zealand ninety million dollars in financially tied funds.
