The Department of Justice and the Committee on Securities and Exchange have accused a man who claims sold deeds for trading of privileged information on the Dark Web. Apostolos Trovias supposedly used anonymous software, pseudonyms (it is said that he has gone through the nickname “The Bull”) and Bitcoin to mask the identity of him.
According to the complaint, Trovias sold information on individually stock and on a subscription basis on the late black market market and other sites on the dark web. It is said that he has been designed himself as a “coverage fund” that worked at a commercial branch as an office employee.
In 2017, not long before the authorities seized and closed Alphaby, Trovias supposedly sold a Undercover Premade Premand Premade Premade Premade Report Agent for at least one public company marketed. He faces a charge of money laundering (which has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison) and a position of securities fraud, which could lead to a 25-year prison sentence if Trovias is condemned.
The complaint was presented in February, but remained sealed until it was apprehended to Trovias. He was arrested in Peru in May, according to a presentation expelled by PCMAG, which points out that the government of the United States was working to extradite it.
Others have been accused or condemned in relation to Alphabay’s activity. In February 2020, FERDERS claimed Larry Harmon for supposedly running a Bitcoin money laundering scheme of $ 300 million. Last September, Bryan Connor Herrell was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Herrel was a moderator for Alphaby and resolved the disputes between suppliers and customers. He pleaded guilty to conspiring to participate in a corrupt organization influenced by the shelf.
