Alleged $2.3B Bitcoin Scammer Speaks Out

Following what victims allege to be one of the largest bitcoin scams of all time, with claims that more than $2.3 billion in bitcoin was stolen, one of the accused has resurfaced to profess innocence.

Last week, news reports indicated that the founders of South African cryptocurrency investment platform Africrypt had absconded with 69,000 BTC belonging to clients, leveraging mixing services to obscure the crime and going into hiding. Now, one of the founders has spoken with The Wall Street Journal to push back on those allegations, claiming Africrypt never even had access to that amount of client funds.
