In Crypto Case of Samourai Wallet Hill Seals Letters Seeking Bail in Portugal US Opposes

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 9 – In another crypto industry prosecution by DOJ, on April 29 crypto-mixed Samourai Wallet's Keonne Rodriguez was presented and released on bond in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Court, where Inner City Press was the only media present.

    Rodriguez, 35, was released on $1 million bond, to be secured by a property at 610 Wood Street, Harmony, PA 16037.

    Of note are the conditions of release: "(i) Defendant is not to operate, work for, or perform services for Samourai Wallet. (ii) Defendant is not to engage in any cryptocurrency transactions, directly or indirectly, w/o prior approval of PTS and the Government. (iii) Defendant is to have no contact with his co-defendant, directly or indirectly, except in the presence of counsel."

  His co-defendant William Hill was arrested in Portugal and would, DOJ said, be extradited.

On July 9, the US opposed Hill's request to be bailed out to Portugal. The requests has two sealed letters of the type usually made public; it also includes a letter on crypto to AG Merrick Garland from Senators Lummis and Wyden that cites the Roman Storm / Tornado Cash case, letter now on Patreon here.

  Like Tornado Cash / Roman Storm and other crypto cases (SBF book Crypto Criminal on Amazon), Inner City Press will cover the case.

It is US v. Rodriguez, et al., 24-cr-82 (Berman / Moses)
