US government sanctions Bitcoin addresses of Chinese “Drug kingpins”

posted 3 months ago
The US government sanctioned 3 Chinese nationals as narcotics traffickers and listed a number of Bitcoin addresses, as well as one Litecoin address, that the agency claims belong to the Chinese citizens.

Wednesday’s action marks the 2nd time the 'foreign asset office of the Treasury department' sanctioned cryptocurrency addresses specifically, having last done so in November 2018 when a pair of Iranian nationals were added to the Specially Designated Nationals list. According to the sanctions list, the following addresses have been affiliated with the individuals.
