From prosecuting Ponzi schemes to fighting against manipulation and security failures of exchanges, Silver Miller has been instrumental in securing justice for victims of cryptocurrency fraud. But what do you do when your cryptocurrency was stolen by an anonymous hacker, you don’t know where your cryptocurrency went, and you don’t know from whom to demand the return of your funds? One area that sets Silver Miller apart from other law firms is our ability to trace stolen crypto into the hands of anonymous hackers and find ways to get those anonymous hackers, or the cryptocurrency exchanges where they have stored stolen assets, to return the stolen cryptocurrency to its rightful owner.
Working with industry experts, we have assisted in developing proprietary crypto tracing technology that is capable of tracking your stolen crypto across the globe each time it is transacted after it was stolen from you. If engaged quickly, we can often pinpoint where your stolen crypto is located within twenty-four hours of when it was wrongfully taken from you and where it might have been transferred after that.
We also have prosecuted numerous lawsuits against those so-called “John Doe” hackers and the cryptocurrency exchanges where those John Doe hackers have accounts to which we have traced the stolen crypto. Within days of filing such lawsuits, we have been able to:
- Put the cryptocurrency exchanges on written notice that their John Doe customers are hiding stolen assets in their accounts.
- Demand that all such assets be flagged by the exchanges as stolen and held in place pending further legal proceedings.
- Obtain Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctions from federal courts requiring the cryptocurrency exchanges to freeze all assets in question in the John Doe hackers’ accounts at the exchanges.
- Issue subpoenas and document demands to the cryptocurrency exchanges on an expedited basis demanding the identities of the John Doe hackers and production of records from the exchanges showing all transactions into and out of the hackers’ accounts.
After obtaining the John Doe hackers’ true identities, we have been able to bring lawsuits against them personally and obtain against them judgments for the full amount of assets stolen from our clients. And when those hackers have been domiciled overseas, we have been able to serve lawsuits upon them through creative electronic means that we have had approved by numerous federal courts. Our tenacity and creativity have not gone unnoticed, as we have on multiple occasions been recognized with American Lawyer Media’s Professional Excellence Award as having the Most Innovative Law Practice for our work advocating on behalf of cryptocurrency investors.
