08 February 2019   448

The court of the Southern District of New York decided to take from the founders of the Bitcoin Exchange Gemini Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss $ 45,000 in favor of Charlie Shrem. This is evidenced by a court decision of February 7.

In this amount, Shrem estimated the legal costs incurred in seeking to cancel the freeze of his assets.

Recall that Winklowoss accused Shrem of stealing 5,000 bitcoins, which they haven't received in 2012 during a deal with an entrepreneur.

They were also interested in a number of expensive purchases that the entrepreneur made after his release from prison.

The brothers demanded to block assets in the amount of 5000 BTC on Shrem's accounts. However, the court rejected this requirement, since none of the accounts of the entrepreneur had such a sum.
