Fired Microsoft geek allegedly stole $10m with a bitcoin mixer • CCN
Ryan Smith:

Ex Microsoft employee Volodymyr Kvashuk was arrested this week amid allegations of digital currency theft to the tune of $10m. U.S. attorneys for the Western District of Washington suspect the Ukrainian-born resident used a Bitcoin mixer to cover up his tracks. Kvashuk, who was in charge of the companies online sales platform, was entrusted to test customer purchases in a simulated environment. The test environment only blocked physical deliveries, however, and the security team failed to prevent purchases of gift cards. The talented engineer quickly took advantage of this flaw using company funds to buy Bitcoin-denominated gift cards. He subsequently resold them online to fund an extravagant lifestyle: The complaint alleges KVASHUK resold the value on the internet, using the proceeds to purchase a $160,000 Tesla vehicle and a $1.6m dollar lakefront home.

Going to love hearing the explanation for how he got the money by legal means.

There is a good reason why every civilized country in the world tightly regulates its financial system. The 2008 global financial crisis, after all, was largely the result of rolling back financial regulation.Crooks, criminals, and grifters are a fact of life, and no financial system can serve its proper purpose unless investors are protected from them.Hence, there are regulations requiring that securities be registered, that money-servicing activities be licensed, that capital controls include “anti-money-laundering” and “know your customer” provisions (to prevent tax evasion and other illicit financial flows), and that money managers serve their clients’ interests.
On the rampant fraud happening without these regulations.
Price manipulation is rampant across all the crypto exchanges, owing to pump-and-dump schemes, wash trading, spoofing, front running, and other forms of manipulation. According to one study, up to 95% of all transactions in bitcoin BTCUSD, -2.15% are fake, indicating that fraud is not the exception but the rule.

“Bitcoin has had a long track record. the network has been operating for ten years. the bitcoin network has been tested. The decentralized nature of the bitcoin protocol has been tested. People have tried to co-opt control of the bitcoin source code and push it in certain directions that benefit their business models. This network and this protocol and its open source governance has withstood that test. It is robust, it has been tested.”

Of course, we can expect Facebook to dispatch an army of lobbyists and lawyers to argue that Libra should be treated like bitcoin. But Congress never passed a law stating that blockchain networks should be treated differently from conventional financial networks. The bitcoin network has been able to ignore regulations only because there's no one for regulators to punish for bitcoin's non-compliance. The Libra network won't have that advantage.

Successful crypto miners use custom machines that solve the puzzles required to build a blockchain and unlock the limited supply of bitcoins that become available roughly every 10 minutes. The more mining machines you have, the better the odds of winning. (Operators sometimes combine into profit-sharing collectives known as pools.)
