  1. The dutch authorities also seized a bunch of servers(no people arrested) over $1 Million worth of BTC and €180.000 in cash.


    • By the way, is anyone keeping track of the amount of BTC governments around the world now control?

      Ireland has 2.3Million
      The Netherlands have 1 Million
      Austalia has 8.4 million

      Anyone know any more?
