    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst Even if not all the BTC involved were recovered, this is a good step to counterattack digital criminals. To underline: the blockchain, which can't be altered, shows in the Bitcoin ledger all crypto transactions, making them traceable thus giving a way for security agencies to close on criminals.
