A Ukrainian lawyer says they have received numerous Russian wallet addresses for the cryptocurrency ‘blacklist’. Ukraine promised a reward for the information.
“Ukraine has received tons of crypto wallet a place where cryptocurrency users can store, send and receive digital assets. addresses related to Russian politicians after making an effort to inspect these wallets.” said Artem Afian, a private Ukrainian lawyer.
“Our idea was that war criminals will try to avoid sanction through cryptocurrencies and we want to get them there.”
The de facto head of crypto affairs in Ukraine, Mykhailo Fedorov, requested this information on Saturday. Fedorov, the deputy prime minister and minister of digital digital technologies are these electronic tools that have the ability to generate, store or even process data. transformation, tweeted a clarion call for information. about crypto wallets held by Russian and Belarusian politicians . In fact, the official also called yesterday on crypto exchanges to freeze account an account is essentially a whose purpose is to track the financial activities of a specific asset/ of powerful Russian clients however large exchanges such as Binance y Squatting r They replied that could not do so without a court order .
Attorney Afian spoke with Coindesk from an undisclosed location. He said he is fighting the crypto part of the war, he is doing it for Ukraine, while worrying about his own safety and that of his parents. “It’s not aggression. It’s a war with real bombs. It’s madness. My parents are alive, but I don’t know if they are safe.” , dijo.
Por el momento, Afian’s team has only identified a few prominent names of Russian politicians with wallets , but expects that after verifying all the wallets, they will get many more. The Afian team is coordinating with the Ministry of Digital Transformation, a familiar wing of the government to Afian, as it was part of the working group that developed the law on virtual assets in Ukraine.
An integral part of the preparation of the “ grey list” es “help all the cryptocurrency cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that use cryptographic technologies to secure their operation. exchanges in the world tag these politicians, their families, partners, children.” . It is intended to convince the exchanges that “stop working with politicians, to get them out of the crypto world.”
“Hago todo para castigarlos”
Ukraine has also asked several crypto exchanges to block a file containing information on transactions completed during a given time period. Blocks are the constituent parts of a blockchain. the accounts of Russian users, to ensure that the sanctions imposed on Russia are effectively implemented.
Afian added that he has received “threats from them,” but he is “happy to read them” because it makes you believe that you are “doing the right thing “.
There are loopholes in this strategy, since russian and belarusian politicians could use cold wallets . However, Afian just wants the exchanges to be “toxic” for politicians and for them to know that “sooner or later we will get them.
“For me it’s personal. My four-year-old son woke up because of the bombs. I can never forgive this. They voted for the war. I can’t make them suffer directly, but I do what I can to punish them. ”, dijo.
The “reward” will depend on the remaining war funds.
The deputy prime minister had also promised a reward for information about the portfolios. Afian says the exact amount will depend on many external factors. “It depends, as most of our funds could go to military resistance, but it could be 5 or 10 bitcoins or more.” he added.
According to Afian, this is a turning point for decentralized decentralization refers to the property of a system in which nodes or actors work in concert in a distributed fashion to achieve a common goal. finance (DeFi), or the process of conducting financial transactions on a blockchain a distributed ledger system. A sequence of blocks, or units of digital information, stored consecutively in a public database. The basis for cryptocurrencies. without intermediaries.
He added a few key words:
“If the cryptocurrency world can prove that without centralization it can deal with crime, then people will trust a trust is a fiduciary relationship in which one party, known as a trustor, gives another party, the trustee, the right to hold title to property or assets for the benefit of a third party, the beneficiary. cryptocurrencies. If the cryptocurrency world fails Ukraine, there may be no future for cryptocurrencies at all.”
