A 29-year-old New Jersey resident stole over $ 15,000 in cryptocurrency using a Connecticut resident's mobile phone, which he appropriated while at an airport in California, writes

Darren Carter has been charged with misappropriation of personal data. According to the police, at one of the stages of the four-month investigation, the detective involved in this case received an email with an apology from the suspect himself, which he intended to send to his victim, but made a mistake.

Carter was in Salem prison on unrelated charges when detectives from Jersey came to him on August 26 to arrest him.

The victim turned to the police on April 17, reporting the loss of $ 15,472.31 on the account of Coinbase. Police later found that the cryptocurrency was converted into US dollars and withdrawn to a PayPal account within a few hours of the theft of the phone.

Having executed several search orders, the investigators went to Carter. The stolen funds were restored using PayPal and returned to the victim.

Chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton said that bitcoin needs more regulation for listing on large exchanges. It is reported by CNBC.

If [investors] think there’s the same rigor around that price discovery as there is on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange ... they are sorely mistaken. We have to get to a place where we can be confident that trading is better regulated.

Jay Clayton

Chairman, SEC

He was talking about listing conditions for bitcoin itself, and not derivatives, such as CME futures.
