Coinbase UK wants to be excluded from a cryptocurrency theft case

Coinbase UK reaches agreement to be excluded from cryptocurrency theft

Liam Robertson was the victim of a phishing hack of the email, which lost 80 BTC, worth over $ 800,000. 60 Bitcoins were transferred to a Coinbase UK wallet and the rest to exchanges. The victim of the attack subsequently obtained a Bankers Trust order to force Coinbase to reveal the identity of the wallet holder. Also, the judge ordered the exchange to block the respective funds.

Coinbase has entered into an agreement for an undisclosed amount to be excluded from the trial. According to Robertson’s lawyers, the case is important because it helps clarify the status of Bitcoin as a property in the UK.

Relevant aspects about the digital yuan

The central bank of China is making progress toward launching a CBDC digital currency, which is not the same as a cryptocurrency. There are important issues to consider: people’s identities will be linked to wallets holding digital currencies, and authorities will be able to monitor transactions. There were also proposals to impose a daily limit on transactions with the digital yuan.

Also, commercial banks will send daily reports on transactions made by users through digital currency.

Although no official confirmation has yet been received, the digital yuan will apparently be based on national currency and will operate on two levels. The central bank will distribute it to commercial banks, which in turn will transfer it to users. In this respect, CBDC does not fall into the cryptocurrency category.

Given that China’s current e-payment ecosystem is quite developed, it remains to be seen how CBDC will compete with existing options such as Alipay and WeChat Pay.
