The crypto space is no playground, as Virgil Griffith found out. During a crypto conference in Pyongyang, Griffith reportedly shared significant details about the platform, while also discussing the possibility to mine ETH in North Korea.
The trouble arrived when conversations surfaced of attempts to import mining rigs and graphic cards to North Korea. This broke the US embargo laws, and Griffith was taken under arrest at the beginning of December.
Brian Klein, Griffith’s lawyer, tweeted the news of the bailout:
