Virgil Griffith, the ethereum researcher who violated the International Emergency Economic Powers Act by speaking at a blockchain conference in North Korea, has reportedly violated his bail by attempting to access his cryptocurrency account.  The bail conditions stipulate he cannot do so. 


On July 9th, the prosecutor wrote to the Judge requesting that Griffith be placed in custody since he violated his bail.

Griffith spoke at the conference in 2019. 

The case against him detailed the following:

“He secured travel documents by communicating with a member of the DPRK Special Delegation, who in turn instructed Griffith to email the DPRK Mission to the United Nations, which is physically located in this District. (Doc 43, Ex. 1.) Griffith initially emailed the DPRK Mission on February 18, 2019, but forwarded the email to a different DPRK Mission email address on March 6, 2019. (Id., the “March 6 Email.”) Griffith was granted a visa, which was issued at the DPRK embassy in Beijing on April 17, 2019, 42 days after the March 6 Email to the DPRK Mission in Manhattan.”

BSV a boon for advertising and affiliate marketing

There are half a million brands worldwide, and with the advent of social media platforms, affiliate marketing is gaining momentum like never before. A session was held at the CoinGeek Zurich Conference to discuss how Bitcoin SV and performance advertising can work together.

CoinGeek’s Becky Liggero Fontana moderated the discussion, joined by TonicPow’s Luke Rohenaz, Net Conversion’s Frank Vertolli, and AffiliateINSIDER’s Lee-Ann Johnstone.

Acknowledging that there are numerous content creators and brand promoters in today’s world, the panelists claimed that BSV enterprise blockchain offers data integrity and transparency to the information-loaded brand advertising space. “…it’s also a timestamp server, so every time a transaction happens, you know exactly when it happened…,” Rohenaz pointed out. Rohenaz added that the technology is scalable and, therefore, is capable of accommodating big data. BSV also offers micropayments that allow for the cheapest transaction fees.
