Author and investigative journalist Geoff White (The Lazarus Heist) presented a thrilling tale from his new book, Rinsed.

It was one of the biggest and most audacious heists in history – more than half a billion dollars stolen in minutes.

The target: A Vietnamese video game.

The suspect: North Korean hackers.

But now they faced a challenge… How on earth do you launder so much dirty money and get clean away?

The answer leads to a spider’s web of crypto fans, cops, and libertarian coders, who are now fighting a battle royale at the cutting edge of privacy and freedom of speech.

Through this example, we learned how hackers target crypto-based organisations, how cybercriminals use new technology to launder money, and how the crypto industry, law enforcement and financial regulators respond to offenders.

Geoff’s book Rinsed will soon be available to order.
