The US Department of the Treasury has imposed sanctions on the Hydra darknet marketplace and the Garantex cryptocurrency exchange.
In addition to the Hydra sanctions, the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has identified more than 100 crypto addresses associated with illegal transactions.
“This is a signal to criminals that they can’t hide on the dark web either in Russia or anywhere else in the world,” said US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.
Earlier it became known that the German police confiscated the Hydra servers and seized 543 BTC.
