Last night, in the south of Moscow, a Bitcoin millionaire was attacked by unknown thugs, cut in the face and forced to transfer all the cryptocurrency he had, approximately 100 Bitcoins, to them.
According to the report, the man managed to survive even though he was thrown outside and left for dead in 20 deg frost.
The victim is now in the hospital recovering.
Moscow Police are investigating the incident.
In a disturbing new type of crime armed robbers broke into a house in a small UK village and forced a Bitcoin trader to transfer a fortune in Bitcoin to them from his computer.
Four thugs in balaclavas broke into the house, which is owned by trader Danny Aston and his wife, Amy Jay. They then tied up Ms. Jay and put the couple’s baby outside in a pram, before threatening Mr. Aston with a gun and forcing him to transfer his Bitcoin into their control.
