Bitcoin is the first successful internet money based on peer-to-peer technology; whereby no central bank or authority is involved in the transaction and production of the Bitcoin currency. It was created by an anonymous individual/group under the name, Satoshi Nakamoto. The source code is available publicly as an open source project, anybody can look at it and be part of the developmental process.
In addition to Bitcoin being able to move, it was revealed that Canadian police officers appear on the list of cryptocurrencies.
This story will probably end up being made into a movie or series of Netflix . The story begins weeks ago, as we have already told in DiarioBitcoin, when truckers protesting in Canada against the mandatory COVID vaccination opened a crowdfunding crowdfunding enables fundraisers to collect money from a large number of people through a variety of different platforms. en GoFundMe whose funds were blocked, then turned to a cryptocurrency cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that use cryptographic technologies to secure their operation. fundraising platform, But the government took further action: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergency Act for the first time since it was enacted in 1988. Part of the Act gives the government and the banks the authority to freeze financial assets and the accounts linked to the protesters without a court order or judicial review process . He also added that he would keep an eye on crypto activity.

But now it was discovered that the Bitcoin the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency in the world.

A report from Coindesk shows that cryptocurrencies linked to Canadian truckers protesting COVID-19 restrictions have been on the move, thus defying authorities’ orders to freeze the funds, analysis from Blockchain.
Casi todos los aproximadamente 20 BTC (alrededor de USD $ 807.000 USD al tipo de cambio actual) enviados a la recaudación de fondos de Tallycoin have gone from that direction and there is only 0.11 BTC left, according to data from Blockchain.com.
Highlight Coindesk that most of the 30 wallets in the Bitcoin identified by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) as fundraising attachments have also largely dried up, with only 6 BTC combined between them, the data shows. However, it says Coindesk that it remains to be seen whether recipients will be able to use the funds to purchase goods or services.
Heading to the exchanges
An analysis by Coindesk al Blockchain shows that four small portions of the approximately 20 bitcoins collected, approximately 0.14 BTC each, ended up in two centralized a centralized organizational structure is one in which a single node or a small number of them are in control of an entire network. exchanges: Coinbase y Crypto.com.

It adds that, while the authorities cannot veto transactions in Bitcoin and similar networks, have influence over the regulated companies that serve as on- and off-ramps to these networks.

On February 16, the Canadian police ordered all regulated financial firms to stop facilitating transactions for 34 wallets associated with the protesters (30 were wallets of Bitcoin and the rest had other cryptocurrencies). Says Coindesk that just that night, at least some of the funds were distributed to unidentified parties and then sent to the centralized exchanges Coinbase yCrypto.com, as shown by data from Blockchain.
Interestingly enough, it says Finbold , a medida que la policía busca las criptos que se movieron a través de exchanges y billeteras sin custodia, surgió una arista aún más digna de película de suspenso: presuntamente some Ontario police officers were named on the leaked list of donors to the ‘Freedom Convoy’.
