EU’s Europol: Bitcoin Privacy Wallet ‘Not Looking Good’ For Law Enforcement
Europol, the European Union's law enforcement agency, has its eyes on the popular bitcoin privacy tool Wasabi Wallet, documents verified by CoinDesk show.
Wasabi Wallet's new protocol would allow users to coinjoin with differing values, which could give users greater flexibility when using the privacy feature.
According to the crypto analytics firm, 2.89 bitcoin associated with Wednesday’s security breach was moved to a Wasabi wallet late last night.
The flaw’s discovery is an example of cooperation in the open-source community, where devs are constantly tinkering to improve their peers’ software.
The maker of Wasabi Wallet becomes the latest firm to support crypto coders with a 1 BTC donation to the Human Rights Foundation's Bitcoin Development Fund.
The Human Rights Foundation took a strong stance on bitcoin privacy tech Wednesday by announcing its new Bitcoin Developer Fund.
