Police in Belarus investigate cryptocurrency theft

The first ever criminal case on cryptocurrency theft is opened in Belarus after a Minsk-based bitcoin owner fell victim to a swindler. The incident with the Minsk entrepreneur happened last August. The Minsker bought a bitcoin in 2011. Back then, it cost $100 (now almost $17000). This year, the entrepreneur decided to sell 0.83 bitcoins. Via Telegram, he made a contact with a buyer who offered to pay $3000. More details in this .
