A Serbian man pleaded guilty to drug trafficking offenses stemming from his role in the administration of the now-defunct dark web marketplace, Monopoly Market.

According to court documents, 33-year-old Milomir Desnica admitted to the conspiracy to develop and run Monopoly Market from 2019 till its seizure by German and Finnish authorities in December 2021.
The seizure of the market's servers gave law enforcement agencies access to the transactions that took place through the market. While reviewing the market's data, the FBI reportedly identified the bitcoin addresses used by Monopoly's admins to receive vendor payments.
The investigators identified a Bitcoin address that had received payment from Monopoly in July 2020, and that had also received two bitcoin deposits from an undisclosed cryptocurrency exchange.
On April 6, 2022, the exchange provided information to the FBI proving that the account that sent bitcoin to the address belonged to Desnica. A search of the Google account used to create the account on the exchange led to the discovery of seed phrases of bitcoin wallets associated with Monopoly Market administrators.
In November 2022, Austrian authorities in Vienna arrested Desnica and searched his home. The search resulted in the seizure of electronic devices and approximately 18,250 Euros in cash. In one of the seized electronic devices, the investigators found a crypto wallet that contained approximately 0.2023 ETH and 866 USDT.
Austrian authorities extradited Desnica to the US in June 2023. He was charged with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments.
On November 8, 2023, Desnica pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. In addition to pleading guilty, Desnica agreed to forfeit the cash and crypto seized during his arrest.

Austrian authorities should have sent the criminal foreigner home. Or judged him themselves.

they didnt have enough evidence or they would have. this is how propaganda works. they go on about all this stuff that they cannot prove in a court of law, and then in the end hoping everyone is primed and accepting of the grand narrative, mention the actual thing they can coerce a plea from as almost an afterthought. this is classic copaganda. it's also pointless. it's a form of police capitulation, because if they could have charged him, they would have, and overcharged him, because they can. but all they got is 1 conspiracy charge which does not require the overt act but agreement + more than 1 person + 1 of the people doing something to further the goal. dictionaries don't matter here. this is the ground floor and they are halfway in the basement trying to get their donut asses up the staircase.

Cypher market has been acting up and i do believe it is getting the shit DDOSed out of it right now. but thats a regular occurence. They have been operating for quite a while so i am worried about a potential seizure coming soon, three years is a long time. what do you all think?

He probably stored the seed on a plain .txt file in google drive, or e-mailed himself the seed. What a clown
