Good afternoon everyone thanks all for Being here Today the Department of Justice Has dealt a significant blow To the crypto crime ecosystem okay the U.S Department of Justice had sort of an Emergency press conference this morning Announcing that they issued their first Crypto enforcement action of the year Now part of this was shutting down a Random exchange that nobody's ever heard Of bitsolato and arresting the founder Let me share with you two minutes of the Doj announcing this enforcement action And then talk about what this means to You and me as crypto investors today the Department of Justice Has dealt a significant blow To the crypto crime ecosystem Justice department agents and Prosecutors working in partnership with The treasury Department and French law Enforcement Have disrupted bits Lotto a china-based Cryptocurrency exchange notorious for Laundering criminal proceeds from the Dark net And last night agents of the FBI Arrested bitslotto's founder Anatoly Legadimov Today's law enforcement actions Put all of those who seek to exploit the Cryptocurrency ecosystem on notice That the Department of Justice will use

Every tool working along with our Partners every tool that we have to Attack the criminal use of the dark net And cryptocurrency Bitslotto failed to implement safeguards Required by U.S law safeguards that Enable law enforcement to detect and to Investigate Financial crimes Instead bitslotto facilitated the Transmission of hundreds of millions of Dollars in illicit funds fueling Dark-net marketplaces and laundering the Proceeds of ransomware attacks For example As alleged bitslotto was a crucial Financial resource for the notorious Hydra darknet Market the disruption of Which I announced from this Podium last April at that time with our German Partners Now Hydra was the world's longest Running and largest darknet Marketplace Responsible for 80 percent of the World's Dark Net transactions Together Hydra and bitslotto formed a high-tech Axis of crypto crime So there's three big takeaways that Stand out to me as a crypto investor First off I love this what is this a Prosecution for ants meaning that the It's a lot of announcement from the doj Is so bizarre the doj worked for over a Year to shut down a random tiny Russian

Exchange while FTX was literally a Multi-billion dollar fraud right in Front of them thank you for keeping us Safe doj memes like this really Illustrate yes the good intentions but The true lack of awareness of the Cryptocurrency sphere from these Regulators or enforcers no don't get me Wrong this is a net positive I like to See Bad actors taken out of space this Was a corrupt exchange with bad players Take them out but if your goal is to Protect average people in the US we can See with this Google Trend search of Bitslotto from 2004 to present nobody in The US has ever heard of this exchange And again I don't want to be too much of A hater I applaud any enforcement agency Taking actual Bad actors out of this Space that's good here are the specific Charges Who's stuck in trade was that it allowed Users to open accounts with minimal Identifying information The result was that bitslotto became a Safe haven for criminals Including drug dealers and ransomware Groups They knew that when the police traced Their funds to bitslotto bitslotto would Not be able to turn over its users true Identities The defendant who is bitslotto's Majority shareholder and sat atop of its

Organizational chart knew full well About these violations To anyone who still believes that they Can hide from the law by using Cryptocurrency This prosecution should put that Illusion to rest and how this Enforcement action now that we Understand it affects you and me number One yes this is an ongoing story so as I Get new information I will make a video I'll keep you updated but two the doj Did make it clear that this is the first Of many the phrase we are just getting Started floated around a lot in that Press meeting but what this represents From the U.S treasury Department the U.S Department of Justice specifically the Treasury's financial crimes enforcement Network Vincent the coordinated actions That this takedown represents was the Most significant U.S action against a Crypto criminal Network to date so pay Attention to the trend Bitcoin ethereum And the crypto Market dipped slightly Actually not even so much on the news They dipped on the announcement of the Press conference before we knew the Information that was going to be Presented but really this just didn't Affect crypto prices all that much again Because this is a net positive in a Small sense for the market of course we Do have bigger things looming right now
