Layout of $ 2.35 billion in cryptocurrencies through Binance

 From 2017 to 2021, Binance handled at least $ 2.35 billion in transactions related to illegal activities, Reuters says. The agency used court records, law enforcement statements, and blockchain information. The crypto exchange responded that they did not consider the calculations accurate and refused to provide their own data.

In particular, according to Reuters, Binance has used the Hydra Darknet website to buyers and sellers for $ 780 million over five years. This information was reported by Crystal Blockchain, and representatives of another analytics company agreed.

The agency also claims that Lazarus, a North Korean hacker group, used Binance to launder cryptocurrency. German police say criminals in Europe laundered money through a crypto exchange, and the victims lost 750 million euros ($ 800 million).

In April, Reuters reported that Binance's regional head, Gleb Kostarev, had agreed to transfer customer data to Rosfinmonitoring. Later, Kostarev stated that he did not transmit the data.
