Bitcoins connected with the Bitfloor exchange hacked in 2012 started to move

Service I recorded the withdrawal of 900 BTC from a “sleeping” wallet, to which they were received on August 16, 2012 from the Bitfloor cryptocurrency exchange hacked later. This is reported by the Telegram channel Goldfoundinshit.

“The amount for this exchange is quite significant.

During the hack, 24,000 BTC was stolen. The exchange could not reimburse the users, after which it stopped working,” the authors of the Telegram channel said.

They assumed that the bitcoins belong to someone from the founders of Bitfloor. Later they were sold on an over-the-counter platform.

Recall that in January 2017, the US Department of Justice accused the oldest Russian crypto exchange BTC-e of laundering funds from Bitfloor. According to investigators, the platform’s coins passed through the same wallets as the assets stolen as a result of attacks on Bitcoinica and several other exchanges in 2011-2012.

Alexander Vinnik, a Russian convicted in the case, was sentenced to five years in prison in France and a fine of 100,000 euros. His lawyers filed an appeal, as well as a lawsuit against the judges who decided to extradite the Russian to Paris.

Later, the defense demanded to drop the charges against Vinnik and pay 5 million euros as moral compensation.
