Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act on Thursday.
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith has been indicted in New York over allegations relating to a conference appearance in North Korea last April.
Prosecutors appear to have a strong case against Virgil Griffith, the ethereum developer charged with conspiring to aid North Korea, legal experts say.
Ethereum Foundation developer Virgil Griffith is slated to be released on bail to his parents in Alabama.
