European law enforcement agencies closed the website and arrested the property of the third in size for the BestMixer cryptocurrency mix.

According to the report, the economic investigation service of the Netherlands confiscated 6 service servers, which per year was cryptocurrenated by more than $ 200 million. Europol claims that most of the funds being processed by Bestmixer had a criminal origin or destination. Therefore, the agency suspects that mixing was used to conceal income and money laundering.

The investigation began in June 2018, but the investigation is still being conducted. Europol continues to learn information from seized servers. IP addresses, transaction details, wallet addresses and chat calls will analyze and transmit data packets to other countries.

According to the Ciphertrace general director Dave Jevans, Bestmixer has openly advertised money laundering services and reported to users, which is deployed to Curaçao, although actually servers were in Luxembourg and the Netherlands, and employees worked in the EU.
