A Melbourne bitcoin trader says he was targeted by a hacker and tricked out of about $70,000 worth of bitcoins after the US Marshals Service accidentally leaked his email details.
The CEO of Bitcoins Reserve, Sam Lee, registered his interest to bid in an auction of 30,000 bitcoins confiscated by the US Marshals when it shut down the online marketplace Silk Road last year.
