"Bitfinex is pleased to announce that it has received $312,219.71 in cash and 6.917 BCH from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS)."
"This is part of Bitfinex’s ongoing efforts, working with law enforcement and other investigation agencies, to recover assets stolen from the exchange in August 2016."
“This specific seizure demonstrates the commitment of law enforcement officials to diligently track all the proceeds of the crime committed against Bitfinex almost seven years ago. We look forward to recovering as much of the stolen bitcoin as we possibly can and redistributing that to holders of the tokens that were issued in response to the hack in 2016,”said Paolo Ardoino, Chief Technology Officer, Bitfinex.
Bitfinex hackers got away with nearly 120000 BTC in 2016. The sum is worth approx. $3.6 billion today.
