South African Brothers Dissapear With $3.6 Billion In Biggest Ever Bitcoin Theft

South African brothers who ran a cryptocurrency investment platform called Africypt have gone into hiding along with investors funds worth $3.6 billion in Bitcoin.

Two brothers named Ameer Cajee who acted as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Raees Cajee who acted as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) started a cryptocurrency company called “Africrypt” in Johannesburg, a supposed currency exchange service.

Africrypt provided all-around solutions, including investment opportunities on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology; brokerage services proffering an electronic, off-exchange digital liquidity solution; payment services providing secured digital payments across the domestic, offshore and international market; and full-suite consulting and advisory services for merchant banks and services for the digital world.

The disappearance of about 69,000 coins, worth more than $4 billion when Bitcoin was trading an all-time high of $65,000, would represent the biggest-ever dollar loss in a cryptocurrency scam. The incident could accelerate regulators’ efforts to impose order in the market amid rising cases of fraud.
