PAULSON SAYS CRYPTOCURRENCIES WILL EVENTUALLY BE ‘WORTHLESS’
Hackers reportedly are using the non-custodial, privacy-focused Wasabi wallet to protect around $97 million in cryptocurrency which was stolen from the Liquid exchange, sleuthing firm Crystal Blockchain reported.
Bitcoin from Liquid belonging to the hackers has been shuffled around over the past two weeks, public blockchain data shows. For example, on Aug. 29, 100 BTC (worth more than $4.8 million) from one hacker-linked address was split up and sent to two separate addresses, then spilt up again into smaller pieces before moving to other addresses.
