Hackers who participated in the large-scale theft of Coincheck used "dark web" to withdraw stolen funds. According to experts on cybersecurity, hackers created a website in the "dark web", which began trading in crypto-currencies on February 7. By this point, perhaps, already half of the stolen money has been withdrawn by the kidnappers in this way. This is reported by Bitcoinist.
At the same time, the site immediately began converting NEM coins and continues to this day. The Singapore NEM Foundation is constantly working to track stolen NEMs, mainly by marking accounts that are supposed to be used for illegal transactions.
The exchangers sent requests with the requirements of the deviation of transactions from the marked accounts.
It has become evident we cannot block currency laundering just because all transactions are recorded. Exchange operators need to make prior agreements on the handling of stolen virtual coins.

Masanori Kusunoki said this while the BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group stated that its Forensic and Inquiry Department followed transactions with stolen coins to an exchanger in Vancouver. The results of its activities BIG Blockchain Intelligence Group will send to the police of Canada and the United States.
