Binance Hackers Bombard Chipmixer to Launder at Least 4,836 BTC
At least 4,836 Bitcoin (BTC) of stolen from Binance exchange in May 2019 was laundered through crypto mixing service Chipmixer.
Attackers started laundering the stolen funds in a month after the hack
Following a major Binance’s security breachthat resulted in a loss of 7,000 BTC (more than $80 million at press time), hackers started to launder the stolen funds on June 12, 2019, according to research published by Luxembourg-based crypto capital flow firm Clain.
