American “laundered” $ 25 million with bitcoins to dubious individuals

California’s 25-year-old Kunal Kalra has been charged for exchanging $ 25 million worth of bitcoin to outsiders without a license and compliance with the anti-money laundering program.

Presumably, among the clients of Kalra there were many people from the criminal world (including drug distributors) who used cryptocurrency in their dark affairs. The exchange of bitcoin for dollars and vice versa took place through an American-installed terminal.

Calra agreed with these and other allegations. As part of the case, an American seized $ 889 thousand and a car.

Presumably, this is the first case in American judicial practice when a person is tried for financial transactions without a license involving cryptocurrencies. For laundering such an amount, the American faces a large prison term.
