The developers of Samourai Wallet in partnership with the French company Nodl will create a Lightning node capable of synchronizing with a wallet of increased privacy. It is reported by CoinDesk.

According to the representatives of Nodl, the new product is a “full, self-validating, bitcoin and lightning node” that allows people to use the mobile wallet app without relying on Samouri Wallet’s servers

A new device will appear this year. Nodl node users will be able to synchronize with the Dojo software from Samourai Wallet, which features the Whirlpool function, which groups bitcoin transactions in such a way as to hide the source of the source of funds. Representatives of the French company noted that the users receive one click mixing service for the first time.

In addition to Dojo being preloaded onto Nodl devices we will also be preloading Whirlpool desktop mixing, allowing users to access and manage their Samourai Wallet mixing on their desktop.

Katana Cryptographic, the company behind Samourai Wallet, raised $ 100,000 in the first round of financing.

In September last year, the release of the Lightning node from the Casa project was held.

Law enforcement authorities in the UK and the Netherlands arrested six people suspected of a series of theft of bitcoins totaling more than 24 million euros. Europol and Eurojust also participated in the operation.

The arrests were carried out simultaneously on Tuesday morning, June 25, in several cities in the UK, as well as in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and were the result of an investigation that lasted 14 months. Among the detainees was one woman.

In their activities, the attackers used "tiepsquatting", they registered domain names similar to the addresses of cryptocurrency exchanges and companies.

The user who made a typo when entering the address, got on the fake site, visually indistinguishable from the original. If he tried to enter his personal account, the criminals gained access to his data.

According to law enforcement, the victims of the scheme were at least 4,000 users from 12 different countries, while their number, as suggested by Europol, may be even higher.

The exact amount of stolen bitcoins is not specified.

Earlier it became known that Europol is developing a computer game that will allow employees to train to track cryptocurrency transactions in criminal offenses.
