Let’s face it, there will be people getting lured by the dark side and take advantage of unknowing victim – be it online or offline. Nevertheless, crime DOES pay. It might not happen sooner but it will definitely happen later. A criminal might enjoy an extravagant today, but may end up captured tomorrow.

Take for example this recent arrest of a man who has laundered about $4 Billion worth of Bitcoins. The same man is believed to be the one who pulled off the MtGox where $375 Million worth of Bitcoins were lost in a massive series of robberies in 2014.

For this task, my choice is the Nano S Ledger Wallet (see ad below).
