Armed robbers dressed as policemen broke into a Bitcoin-trader’s home in Drenthe, the Netherlands, and tortured him for an hour in front of his four-year-old daughter. It is reported by De Telegraaf.

According to the publication, as a result of torture, the victim received serious injuries. The Dutch police have already formed a group of 15 law enforcement officers whose task is to find and detain the criminals. Note that so large groups usually work on murder investigations.

It is not yet known what exactly the robbers extorted and whether the digital assets of the trader were stolen.

In De Telegraaf they added that the victim worked in Italy and Thailand, and bought a house in Drenthe without a mortgage.

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
