A Russian computer programmer involved in the collapse of a big cryptocurrency exchange says he was tricked into handing over its entire assets to lớn fraudsters posing as FSB agents, according to lớn documents obtained by tradequangngai.com.vn Russian.

Alexei Bilyuchenko was a key player in Wex, which stopped trading in 2018, leaving customers unable khổng lồ access investments totalling nearly half a billion US dollars.

tradequangngai.com.vn Russian has spent months investigating the murky world of Russian cryptocurrency trading, trying khổng lồ find out what happened khổng lồ the money.

It's a story worthy of the tradequangngai.com.vn TV drama McMafia, involving an unlikely cast of characters from computer geeks và FBI agents, to a billionaire oligarch with ties to the war in Ukraine.

The story begins in the Russian đô thị of Novosibirsk in August 2017 where Alexei Bilyuchenko, a former IT manager for a furniture shop chain, was lying low having narrowly escaped arrest on holiday in Greece.

Described by friends as shy men who preferred computers lớn people, Alexander Vinnik và Alexei Bilyuchenko phối up an exchange called BTC-e which was to lớn become notorious.

Like similar exchanges around the world, BTC-e offered investors the chance to lớn use real money to lớn buy virtual currencies.

Unlike other exchanges in Europe và the US, BTC-e did not ask customers for their ID, meaning that as well as appealing khổng lồ legitimate investors, it also offered a potential way for organised criminals lớn launder money.

Customers flocked khổng lồ invest in BTC-e và, according khổng lồ Global Witness, by 2016 it had become the third largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world.

The two partners communicated online và they only met in person in năm trước when their daily bitcoin trading reached $2m. By the time it hit $10m in 2016 they held a family tiệc nhỏ in Moscow.

In July 2017 they went on holiday lớn Greece, unaware US federal agents investigating international money laundering were on their trail.


The FBI suspected BTC-e was involved in hiding funds stolen from the haông chồng of another bitcoin exchange, Mt Gox. Cybercrime experts also thought it was being used by the mysterious Russian hacking group Fancy Bears.

A warrant was issued for Alexander Vinnik's arrest & Greek police detained him on the beach, in front of his wife and children.

His mother called Alexei Bilyuchenko, who was in a different resort. In a panic, he smashed his máy vi tính, threw it into the sea and jumped on the next flight khổng lồ Moscow.

Bachồng trang chủ in Novosibirsk, Mr Bilyuchenko decided lớn try lớn recoup his losses by setting up another exchange called Wex (World Exchange Services).

The FBI had seized BTC-e's trang web but he still had the back-up servers và, via Wex, he was able lớn return investments lớn some BTC-e clients.

At this stage, according to lớn the version of events he later told police, và which has been shared with the tradequangngai.com.vn, Alexei Bilyuchenko decided he needed a backer lớn offer some protection.

He says he was introduced to lớn Konstantin Malofeyev, a Moscow-based billionaire, with svào ties to both the Kremlin & the Russian Orthodox Church.


Mr Malofeyev, who made his fortune in investment banking, is currently under US and EU sanctions for alleged link khổng lồ rebel fighters in Eastern Ukraine.

The topic of how much money Wex was generating allegedly figured large in their conversations, as did the question of what might have happened lớn the funds held by BTC-e until the FBI swooped.

"For several months Malofeyev demanded I show him the Wex cryptocurrency balances," Mr Bilyuchencko told police.

Angry clients began demanding their money baông chồng and one filed a complaint with police in Russia's Chuvashiya region.

He said he had actually lost control of Wex in the spring of 2018, several months before it officially collapsed.

He said that at a meeting in Konstantin Malofeyev's Moscow office he had been introduced khổng lồ some men he understood were agents from the security service, the FSB.

They took hyên ổn to lớn a building used by the FSB, not far from the Bolshoi Theatre. They asked him about Wex & then took hyên ổn lớn the luxury Lotte khách sạn near the Russian foreign ministry where he says he remained under guard all night.

According to Mr Bilyuchenko, the next morning he was taken baông xã lớn Mr Malofeyev's office, where it was strongly suggested he should move sầu the funds held by Wex inlớn "an FSB fund", which he agreed to lớn, &, according to hlặng, on his next visit lớn Moscow he transferred everything as requested.

Baông chồng home in Novosibirsk, it began to dawn on hyên, he says. He had, he claims, been the victim of a scam and, rather than transferring the money into lớn state coffers, he had actually been tricked into lớn handing it over lớn Mr Malofeyev's associates.

Since telling his story to the police Mr Bilyuchenko has gone inlớn hiding. Private security guards now protect his home page and he has declined to lớn speak to lớn the tradequangngai.com.vn or anyone else about Wex.

Alexander Terentiev, who heads a campaign group for defrauded investors, told the tradequangngai.com.vn he was not convinced. But others seem less sceptical.

Since the kết thúc of November, courts, public buildings, metro stations và shopping centres in Moscow and St Petersburg have been paralysed by almost daily hoax bomb threats.

According to reports in Russian media, several of the emailed warnings have sầu included references khổng lồ Wex's missing millions và to lớn Mr Malofeyev.

"Neither Konstantin Malofeyev nor his companies have sầu anything to vị with the theft of Bitcoins, the Wex exchange, or its management," it said.

Mr Malofeyev has declined lớn speak khổng lồ the tradequangngai.com.vn about the case và the FSB has not responded to the tradequangngai.com.vn's request for bình luận.

Meanwhile, in Greece, two years after his dramatic arrest on the beach, Alexei Bilyuchenko's former business partner Alexander Vinnik is still in jail.

The US, Russia and France are all seeking his extradition. He has not seen his wife, now suffering from a brain tumour, for two years,

His lawyer Timofei Musatov told the tradequangngai.com.vn the former bitcoin multi-millionaire had been on a long hunger strike & was now a shadow of his former self.
