以太坊开发者Virgil Griffith将从监狱中释放待审

wuya 2019-12-3 16:33

一名法官裁定,美国司法部有足够的证据对以太坊的开发者维吉尔·格里菲斯提起诉讼。


格里菲斯,谁在洛杉矶被捕的罪名在感恩节阴谋协助朝鲜民主主义人民共和国(朝鲜)学习更多关于cryptocurrency为了自己的利益,有初步听证会周一确定美国司法部有充足的证据来证实可能的原因。


美国纽约南区检察官办公室的星期五说,他被指控“违反了《国际紧急经济权力法》(IEEPA)前往朝鲜民主主义人民共和国(朝鲜或朝鲜)为了提供一个演示和技术建议使用秘密货币”的方法和区块链技术来逃避制裁。


根据周五的起诉书,格里菲斯要求——但被拒绝了——前往朝鲜进行演讲,题为“区块链与和平”。此外,起诉书称,格里菲斯随后“开始制定计划,促进朝鲜和韩国之间的加密货币1的交换”,尽管他知道这将违反美国对朝鲜的制裁。


周一下午的听证会结束后,格里菲斯的代理律师、面包师布莱恩·克莱因(Brian Klein)在一份声明中说,释放格里菲斯后,他将从监狱获释。


他补充道:


“我们很高兴今天法官裁定维吉尔应该被释放,等待审判。我们对刑事诉讼中未经证实的指控提出异议。维吉尔期待着他在法庭上的那一天,那时整个故事就会水落石出。”


克莱恩曾在加密货币和网络安全领域代表过许多知名人士,其中包括比特币企业家查理•斯瑞姆(Charlie Shrem)和安全研究员马库斯•哈钦斯(Marcus Hutchins)。


克莱恩与卡梅隆和泰勒·文克莱沃斯达成了和解协议。泰勒于2018年11月起诉史莱姆,称他欠他们2600万美元的比特币。被美国当局指控制造Kronos恶意软件的哈钦斯已认罪,并被判处一年监外释放,该案法官建议他申请赦免。


更正(12月2日1:02 UTC):在这篇文章发表后,格里菲斯的代理律师补充说,他的客户将被扣留,直到邦德发布。“这通常需要几个星期,”克莱因写道。标题已更新。

 

A judge ruled that the U.S. Department of Justice has enough evidence to move a case against ethereum developer Virgil Griffith to trial.

Griffith, who was arrested in Los Angeles on Thanksgiving Day on charges of conspiracy to assist the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in learning more about cryptocurrency for its own benefit, had a preliminary court hearing Monday to determine whether the DOJ had sufficient evidence to establish probable cause.

The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Southern District of New York said Friday that he had been charged with "violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) by traveling to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) in order deliver a presentation and technical advice on using cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to evade sanctions."

According to Friday's complaint, Griffith asked for – and was denied – permission to travel to North Korea in order to give the presentation, titled "Blockchain and Peace." Moreover, the complaint said, Griffith subsequently "began formulating plans to facilitate the exchange of Cryptocurrency-1 between the DPRK and South Korea," despite knowing that this would violate U.S. sanctions against the DPRK.

Following the hearing Monday afternoon, Brian Klein of Baker Marquart, who is representing Griffith, said in a statement that the developer will be released from jail after bond is posted.

He added:

"We are very pleased that today the judge found that Virgil should be released from jail pending trial. We dispute the untested allegations in the criminal complaint. Virgil looks forward to his day in court, when the full story can come out."

Klein has represented a number of high-profile individuals in the cryptocurrency and cybersecurity worlds, including bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem and security researcher Marcus Hutchins.

Klein negotiated a settlement against Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, who sued Shrem in November 2018 alleging he owed them $26 million in bitcoin. Hutchins, who was accused of creating the Kronos malware by U.S. authorities, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year of supervised release, with the judge in the case recommending he apply for a pardon.

Correction (Dec. 2, 1:02 UTC): After publication of this article, the lawyer representing Griffith added that his client will be held until bond is posted. "This usually takes a few weeks," Klein wrote. The headline has been updated.
