US authorities arrested and charged Anatoly Legkodymov, the founder of the Bitzlato cryptocurrency exchange. Although the exchange is relatively unknown, the justice department alleges that it was instrumental to darknet criminal marketplaces, including Hydra Market. The DOJ alleges that users of Hydra Market processed more than $700 million in cryptocurrency through Bitzlato, which also helped to facilitate more than $15 million in ransomware proceeds. Although Bitzlato claimed not to serve users in the United States, the DOJ claims that the exchange "did substantial business with U.S.-based customers".
