Italian court forces BitGrail CEO to repay $170M in ‘lost’ cryptocurrency (thenextweb.com)
An Italian judge has reportedly ordered Francesco Firano, founder of shady cryptocurrency exchange BitGrail, to repay the $170 million worth of cryptocurrency that went “Missing” early last year.
The docs suggest Firano continuously bungled security matters related to the private keys of BitGrail users, and at one point, had transferred customer funds into wallets under direct BitGrail control.
The shared court docs stated more than $1 million in personal assets had already been seized, along with millions of dollars in cryptocurrency that was being managed by BitGrail.
Perhaps the most damning detail relates to how, in the days before revealing that $170 million worth of user’s cryptocurrency had been “Lost,” Firano deposited 230 Bitcoins onto another cryptocurrency exchange in a bid to exchange it for Euros.
An unfortunate question remains over just how much cryptocurrency Firano will be able to pay back.

CryptoNewsTLDR is a cryptocurrency news aggregate, bringing you the latest news in quick-to-read summaries.
Thanks to recent breakthroughs in text algorithms we’re able to reduce news articles to their most important sentences, saving you time every single day.
How does it work?
CryptoNewsTLDR is powered by SMMRY.
It works to reduce text to core sentences. It achieves this by:
• Ranking sentences by importance using the core algorithm.
• Reorganizing the summary to focus on a topic; by selection of a keyword.
• Removing transition phrases.
• Removing unnecessary clauses.
• Removing excessive examples.
The core algorithm summarizes in 7 simple steps:
1) Associate words with their grammatical counterparts. (e.g. “city” and “cities”)
2) Calculate the occurrence of each word in the text.
3) Assign each word with points depending on their popularity.
4) Detect which periods represent the end of a sentence. (e.g “Mr.” does not).
5) Split up the text into individual sentences.
6) Rank sentences by the sum of their words’ points.
7) Return X of the most highly ranked sentences in chronological order.
