Skeptics Question the Official Colonial Pipeline Bitcoin Seizure Story – Bitcoin News.

On June 7, the United States Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the “recovery” of 63.70 bitcoin from the funds Colonial Pipeline sent to the hackers.

The official story has a number of inconsistencies and federal investigators did not disclose how the FBI was able to confiscate the Darkside gang’s private key.

According to Bloomberg, shortly after, Colonial Pipeline did pay nearly $5 million to the ransomware gang Darkside.

Then there’s the fact that it is impossible to crack a bitcoin (BTC) key without forcing the owner to reveal the private key.

The report published yesterday on Bitcoin.com News explains that executives from Blockchain Intelligence Group(CSE: BIGG) highlight that law enforcement was dependent on “training and analysis [that] requires advanced tools and learning” Other blockchain surveillance companies also followed the ransomware coins as Elliptic recently wrote about following Darkside funds.

The election attorney, litigator, and bitcoin practice group leader, Bryan Jacoutot, reiterated the fact that bitcoin private keys cannot be “hacked.”
