A Ukrainian gang, Pavel Lerner, a currency expert and a senior official at a large digital exchange company, was kidnapped and demanded a ransom of up to $ 1 million, FT reported.

Members of the gang did not want to receive the ransom in monetary terms, but demanded the equivalent in the currency of "Coin Coin", and in this form become safe transfers can not be tracked and know who is behind the kidnapping.

Lerner transferred the amount needed for the gang to release him immediately, leaving the company he works for and confirming to all clients that their accounts and Bat Coin coins are safe and that Lerner does not know the account numbers in the first place. This means that the ransom was paid from his own account, or from the company's account.

The New York attorney general has warned against such practices, saying that digital currencies will contribute to an increase in the crime rate for the difficulty of tracking the gang and the accounts for which the ransom is being transferred.
