Bitzlato加密货币交易所创始人在洗钱计划中认罪

The Russian founder of the now-defunct Bitzlato cryptocurrency exchange has pleaded guilty, nearly 11 months after he was arrested in Miami earlier this year.

现在已经关闭的Bitzlato加密货币交易所的俄罗斯创始人承认了罪名,他在今年稍早被迈阿密逮捕了近11个月后承认了罪名。


Anatoly Legkodymov (aka Anatolii Legkodymov, Gandalf, and Tolik), according to the U.S. Justice Department, admitted to operating an unlicensed money-transmitting business that enabled other criminal actors to launder their illicit proceeds. He faces up to five years in prison.

美国司法部称,阿纳托利·列高科迪莫夫(又名阿纳托利·列高科迪莫夫,甘道夫和托利克)承认经营了一家未经许可的货币传输业务,使其他犯罪分子能够洗钱。他将面临最高五年的监禁。


"Legkodymov operated a cryptocurrency exchange that was open for business to money launderers and other criminals," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri of the Justice Department's Criminal Division.

美国司法部刑事司的代理助理部长尼科尔·M·阿根特里埃里表示:“列高科迪莫夫经营了一个面向洗钱分子和其他犯罪分子开放的加密货币交易所。”


"He profited from catering to criminals, and now he must pay the price. Transacting in cryptocurrency does not put you beyond the reach of the law."

“他从为犯罪分子提供服务中获利,现在他必须付出代价。进行加密货币交易并不意味着你逃脱了法律的制裁。”


Bitzlato, which served as a safe haven for fraudsters and ransomware crews such as Conti, is estimated to have received $2.5 billion in cryptocurrency between 2019 and 2023, more than half of which originated from illegal and risky sources.

Bitzlato被认为是欺诈者和勒索软件团伙(如Conti)的避难所,估计在2019年至2023年间收到了250亿美元的加密货币,其中一半以上来自非法和风险来源。


Prior to its takedown by law enforcement, the Hong Kong-registered exchange also drew attention for its lax know-your-customer (KYC) procedures and marketed itself as a platform that required only minimal identifying information from its users. Some of its users are believed to have registered accounts using stolen identity documents.

在被执法部门关闭之前,这家注册在香港的交易所还因其松懈的客户了解程序而引起关注,并将自己宣传为一个只需要最少的用户身份信息的平台。据信,一些用户可能使用被盗的身份文件注册了账户。


The Justice Department also singled out the Hydra darknet marketplace as Bizlato's largest counterparty in cryptocurrency transactions, with the former's users exchanging no less than $700 million worth of digital assets with the exchange.
司法部还特别指出Hydra暗网市场是Bizlato在加密货币交易中最大的交易对手,前者的用户与该交易所交换的数字资产价值不低于7亿美元。

Hydra was the world's largest and longest-running dark web marketplace for narcotics, stolen financial information, fraudulent identification documents, and money laundering services. It was dismantled by German and U.S. authorities in April 2022.

Hydra是世界上最大、运行时间最长的暗网市场,用于贩卖毒品、窃取的金融信息、欺诈身份文件和洗钱服务。它于2022年4月被德国和美国当局摧毁。


"Legkodymov's guilty plea today confirms that he was well aware that Bitzlato, his cryptocurrency exchange, was being used like an open turnstile by criminals eager to take advantage of his lax controls over illicit money transactions," said U.S. Attorney Breon Peace for the Eastern District of New York.

纽约东区的美国检察官布雷恩·皮斯表示:“列高科迪莫夫今天的认罪证实,他非常清楚他的加密货币交易所Bitzlato已经被犯罪分子利用,这些犯罪分子渴望利用他对非法资金交易的松懈监管。”
