A resident of Sweden sent a letter with the bomb to the English bitcoin exchange because of the refusal to change the password



The 43-year-old resident of Sweden, Michael Salonen, was sentenced by the court of Stockholm to seven years in jail after he was convicted of murder in a murder in the murder of two employees of the British bitcoin exchange CryptoPay. This is reported Birminghan Mail .

In addition, Salonen sent a number of letters with an unknown white powder to a number of Swedish politicians, including the country's prime minister, Stefan Leuven.

As the investigation established, in August 2017, the man sent two homemade bombs to CryptoPay, of which he was a client. Fortunately, the explosive devices did not work. The exact motives that guided Salonen are not clear, but according to one version he decided to send bombs after the exchange refused to change his account password.

“Slanon made and put up a device that could be seriously injured and even killed, and the motivation of the complacency was unimpressive – it was a change. The fact that the bomb didn’t explode is a complete success, ”said Scotland Yard Commander Geart command commander.

Slanon was identified in this year's May at Stopokolma Aeroport from Thailand. In his possession, elements of explosive devices were found, and his involvement in sending letters was also confirmed by DNA residues found on them.

It is reported that the link to the supervisor Dmitriy Gunyashev was not lucky because of the change in the attachment. According to the latter, the company's employees mainly work remotely in different European countries, but the exchange still has increased security measures.

In parallel with this, Salonen sent letters to the powders of a number of Swedish politicians. A letter to the Prime Minister was accompanied by a note with the words “You will die soon”. What do the policies have to do with the Croptopa case is unclear.
