    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country Dark Matter [my scoffingly uncritical tinning]
    SEATTLE (AP) — A jury on Tuesday convicted a former Microsoft worker of wire fraud and other charges in what prosecutors described as a scheme to steal $10 million in digital currency.

    The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle said 25-year-old Ukrainian citizen Volodymyr Kvashuk helped test Microsoft’s online retail sales platform.

    He was accused of stealing digital currency such as gift cards that could be redeemed for Microsoft products, then reselling them on the internet and using the proceeds to buy a $160,000 Tesla vehicle and a $1.7 million lakefront home.

    He was fired in June 2018 after the scheme came to light. Prosecutors said that during the seven months of his activity, $2.8 million in bitcoin was transferred into his bank accounts.

    Following a five-day trial in federal court, Kvashuk was convicted of wire fraud, money laundering and aggravated identity theft, among other offenses.

    He faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced by U.S. District Judge James L. Robart in June.

    If only he was a little less greedy he could have absconded with his crypto-shekels and lived like one of those anarchist assholes who got into bitcoin in 2009.

    Sometimes greedy works. This guy was ripping off the company he worked for. He was shitting where he eats. He may have been caught over $1k. He should have adjusted his scheme. Maybe use a co-workers PC to do his dirty work via RAT.

    Cops can't confiscate your bitcoins. Imagine being released 20 years later and bitcoin's worth like a million bucks.

    I was going to suggest burying a USB stick, but I don't know if that'd last 20 years. Neither if a HDD or SSD would. If stored in the cloud, you'd have to trust them to keep your account for so long.

    The thing is they can compel you to provide encryption keys or hidden data and add long years on the end of your sentence if you tell them to get bent. I like the idea of getting out and having access to BTC that's now worth 100x what it was, but unless they don't know about it you'll probably end up going in for a loooong time.
