The US authorities returned the Bitfinex 27.66 BTC cryptocurrency exchange, which was stolen as a result of a hacker attack in August 2016. These funds were in law enforcement since November 2018. This is stated in the official message of the site.

Over two years following the hack of the Bitfinex platform, today we see the results of a clear and robust response strategy and the efforts of the U.S. government. It gives us great pleasure to be able to reimburse our traders that were loyal to us and believed in us at a very difficult time. We would like to thank U.S. federal law enforcement agencies for their ongoing efforts to investigate the security breach and their commitment to seizing and returning stolen assets.

Chief Financial Officer, Bitfinex

Bitfinex will convert received crypto into US dollars and transfers them to RRT tokens holders. The site opened up the possibility of converting BFX debt tokens into this asset after full repayment of debts on them in April 2017.
