Juts couple of days ago ICIJ published its new research about some of the world’s top leaders’ and influential peoples’ stories of financial misconducts. The reports by ICIJ also argued that “Bitcoin czar” may have been the member of the Carbanak hacking group. The International Consortium of Investigation Journalists (ICIJ) have also discussed the crypto criminal in their new leaks called “Pandora Papers.’
The ICIJ’s Pandora Papers have claimed “Bitcoin czar” a famous criminal who masterminded the largest “cyberheist in history” own the offshore assets. However, the Pandora Papers also said that those offshore assets being managed by a third independent firm.
Pandora Papers have exposed how some of the world’s most influential people have hidden their wealth. Where those papers have exposed world’s top 300 politicians and businessmen. The report has also discussed the operations of hacker group Carbanak. The cybergang according to the reports have stolen around $1.24 billion from financial institutes and the digital crypto exchnages as well. The network operated over more than 100 countries from 2013 to 2017.
However, the most famous arrest of this network’s members came in 2018, when the authorities finally managed to arrest the master mind Denis Tokarenko (also known as Denis Katana), and many people have voiced that Pandora Papers indirectly called his name.
The reports published by the Bloomberg’s business research and network team concluded that at the time of Tokarenko’s arrest back in the month of March 2018, the Spanish National Police recovered 15,000 Bitcoin (BTC), worth $162 million from his possession. This is history’s biggest crypto scam till today.
The illegal approach adopted by the Tokarenko did not just end here. The Chief inspector of the Spanish police, Carlos Yuste also told the sources that Tokarenko also purchased a bitcoin mining system in China. He used his mining system to launder his illegal Bitcoins as well.
Despite the fact that Pandora Papers have not directly covered the crypto thefts and other cyber-attacks, but these papers have partially included the incidents from digital trading as well. This leads to the future possibility the ICICJ might decided to open up about the digital thefts and cybercrimes incidents as well.
But the fact is that Pandora Papers have provide quite the useful insight about the some of world’s most famous cyber-attacks on the recent time. If authorities decided to put investigate these facts, then there might be multiple people who find them behind the bar. The primary issue regarding the cyber-attacks culprits is that majority of them gets away because of the lack of the profs. The only notable person who was sent to prison on committing a cybercrime was former Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation employee Maia Santos Deguito.
