Bitcoin Theft Fugitive’s Thai Passport Revoked After no Show 1816

The Foreign Ministry has revoked the passport of fugitive Prinya Jaravijit, believed to be in the United States and the prime suspect in the theft of bitcoins said to be worth 797 million baht from a Finnish investor, according to the Crime Suppression Division.

Deputy commander Pol Col Chakrit Sawasdee said on Wednesday the Foreign Ministry had cancelled Mr Prinya’s passport at the CSD’s request. He had instructed Mr Prinya to turn himself in by Monday, but the suspect had contacted him to say he was unable to travel to Thailand because his passport had been revoked. He was working out his return with the Thai embassy in the US.

Pol Col Chakrit said that if Mr Prinya remained in the US, his stay there would be illegal because he now had no valid passport. The deputy commander said the remaining suspects were all members of the Jaravijit family. The other suspects – investor Prasit Srisuwan and businessman Chakrit Ahmad – had already made a compensation settlement with Finnish investor Aarni Otava Saarimaa.

Next week police would charge Mr Prinya’s parents and elder brother with money-laundering. They had received money from Mr Prinya and later spent it. Mr Prinya, 35, is accused of luring Mr Saarimaa into transferring 5,564 bitcoins to his group for the purchase of the shares of three firms — Expay Software, NX Chain Inc and DNA 2002 Plc — and another digital currency called Dragon coins, with a promise of high investment returns. Mr Saarima, 22, transferred the bitcoins to Mr Prinya, who allegedly did not spend all the money on the agreed investments, but stole much of it.

The Finnish investor, together with Thai businesswoman Chonnikan Kaewkasee, complained to the CSD in January that they were defrauded of bitcoins worth 797 million baht by Mr Prinya and his group.

Crime Suppression Division police began an investigation and found that Mr Prinya’s group had used money transferred into their bank accounts to purchase blocks of land in the names of Mr Prinya and other suspects.

How ViaBTC, a Pool Founded 6 Years ago, Continues to Rank Top Globally by Hashrates 5483

Recently, the BTC hashrate has reached a new high. The previous record was 248.11EH/s, which was exceeded when the hashrate figure peaked at 254.77EH/s this month. Despite sluggish market conditions in 2022, the interest in mining remains unabated. In addition, as more people joined the mining community, the BTC hashrate kept going up, and the difficulty also soared. Running low hashrates, individual miners are becoming less competitive, yet the advent of mining pools brought them a ray of hope and also revolutionized conventional mining models.

Of the many pools that have popped up, ViaBTC Pool has left miners with a deep impression. In 2021, some countries cracked down on BTC mining, and many pools went out of business as a result. However, the strict policies didn’t hurt ViaBTC’s BTC hashrate. Instead, it has ranked 1st for a while thanks to the pool’s globally distributed business model and the recognition from global miners.

As a pool founded in 2016, ViaBTC managed to survive and record world-leading hashrates all thanks to the following factors.

A strong team

To create a stable mining environment, the ViaBTC team has deployed nodes all over the world to match miners with the nearest node, which minimizes delays and makes the mining network stabler. So far, ViaBTC remains the pool with the lowest orphan rate in the entire industry, which shows the strength of its team.

At ViaBTC, over 60% of the staff are members of the product and R&D teams, the primary members of which are all seasoned developers from world-renowned Internet-based companies. Led by ViaBTC’s founder Haipo Yang, the team has continued to upgrade and improve the pool. As it keeps the pool secure and stable, the R&D team has introduced more versatile products and features and built a full set of matching tools.

Innovation

To address existing flaws of the mining industry, ViaBTC Pool has rolled out many innovative products. For instance, the pool invented PPS+, which was the first payment method of its kind in the industry, and created Transaction Accelerator, also a unique product. Plus, it is also the first pool to support “Convert Now”. These products have not only improved the mining revenue but also solved the problem of congested transactions under extreme market conditions. Meanwhile, the hourly pay of mining revenue effectively avoids risks arising from price fluctuations.

A well-established blockchain ecosystem

ViaBTC has been trying to build an all-encompassing blockchain ecosystem that integrates products, tools, and investment. In addition to ViaBTC Pool, the group now also boasts other four key business segments, including CoinEx Exchange, ViaWallet, CoinEx Smart Chain (CSC), and ViaBTC Capital, which makes it one of the best-established blockchain firms out there.

Relying on its strong ecosystem, ViaBTC has simplified the tedious process that goes from crypto mining to transaction and circulation. When withdrawing cryptos from ViaBTC Pool to CoinEx Exchange, miners do not have to pay any fees, and withdrawals arrive in real time. Moreover, Staking, a built-in service of ViaWallet, provides miners with all kinds of different ways to preserve the value of their assets in an extended bear market.

ZIM & Marius Nacht complete additional investment in WAVE BL, a leading provider of a paperless Bill of Lading solution 27441

ZIM Integrated Shipping Services Ltd. (NYSE: ZIM) and Marius Nacht, one of Israel’s leading serial entrepreneurs and investors, announced today that they have jointly invested in a Series B Financing round of WAVE BL, a developer of groundbreaking blockchain network supporting paperless trade in the shipping industry. The two investors co-lead a round of approximately $8 million that will accelerate global implementation of WAVE BL’s proven technology.

Electronic bill of lading is currently offered to ZIM customers worldwide, requiring only a simple onboarding process which is supported by ZIM.

Digitization of bills of lading is revolutionizing shipping documentation, sharply reducing time, complexity, errors and costs for all parties involved, while maintaining a high level of security and, importantly, being far more sustainable than the traditional paper bill of lading.

Proceeds will be used to support development of WAVE BL’s business and further implementation of its pioneering technology supporting paperless trade in the shipping industry, as well as in other sectors.

ZIM President and CEO Eli Glickman: “Our early adoption of WAVE BL’s blockchain based platform to promote paperless trade highlights our leadership in utilizing digital strategies to best serve customers and has proven extremely successful for ZIM and for changing the industry. Today, ZIM is an industry leader in paperless shipping processes, and we are seeing growing interest from others in our sector to adopt the platform reflecting the significant benefits it provides to both customers and carriers. This new investment in WAVE BL is a step forward in the path to a more digitized and sustainable future, in accordance with our vision and values.”

ZIM CIO Eyal Ben-Amram: “Since completing the integration of WAVE BL’s platform with our system, we can offer every customer the ability to enjoy the vast benefits of paperless shipping, which is especially crucial during COVID-19. We are pleased and proud to continue our support of this exciting and leading company.”

WAVE BL CEO Gadi Ruschin“Our partnership with ZIM has enabled us to introduce our pioneering technology to a vast audience as we endeavor to become the shipping industry standard in paperless trade. We are extremely pleased with the continued faith and commitment of ZIM and Marius Nacht in our company and look forward to leading the wave of the future in shipping.”

Ophir Shoham, who leads Marius Nacht’s investments in high-tech: “We are proud to continue supporting WAVE BL’s remarkable technology and believe in its disruptive potential, leading to a fundamental change in the way business is conducted across countless sectors and industries. We are very impressed with the great progress the team has made and excited to invest in WAVE BL’s trail-blazing platform.”
