German law enforcement received $14M from selling seized cryptocurrency
The German authorities have just made around $10 million from the sale of Bitcoin that they seized in criminal investigations. Also, they made an additional $4 million from selling other cryptocurrencies.
The cryptocurrencies that were sold included 1,312 Bitcoins which were mostly seized in a crackdown on a platform called LuL.to, which was illegally selling copyrighted ebooks and audiobooks at very low prices. The site was seized and blocked last June, its operators were arrested and its assets went into a fund that is typically used for police resourcing.
The sale took place over a couple of months, in a series of more than 1,600 transactions on a German cryptocurrency trading platform.
