After Paris attacks European Union they need to crack down on their Bitcoins
EU ministers will urge European Commission to bolster controls of virtual currencies like bitcoin and anonymous online payments, after last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
After the Paris attacks European Union (EU) countries plan a crackdown on virtual currencies like Bitcoin and anonymous payments in a bid to stop terrorism financing, Reuters reports.
Earlier this week, we reported about an anti-terrorism network of hackers, Ghost Security Group, has informed that ISIL, which claimed responsibility for last week’s attacks in Paris, used bitcoin to finance their operations.
NewsBTC interviewed a member of the group, who confirmed their team managed to track several bitcoin addresses related to the terrorist organization.
During the year, Ghost Security Group has already attacked thousands of social media accounts and public websites related to ISIL.
