A US government judge has requested a badass hacker to pay what might as well be called $750,000 in digital currency for bail. The man was accused of hacking computer game organization Electronic Arts (EA), getting in-game currency used to purchase and offer in-game items, and pitching access to internet recreations via blackmarket sites.
Martin Marsich, a 25-year-old Serbian and Italian national who was last seen and known to be living in Udine, Italy, was captured at the San Francisco International Airport on August 8 while trying to embark on a trip to Serbia. At the government court in San Francisco where he showed up the following day, the DOJ portrayed:
The U.S. based Judge, Corley requested Marsich discharged to a shelter relying on the prerequisite that he post $750,000 worth of cryptocurrency for bail.
However, the reason why the Judge demanded bail in cryptocurrency is not yet clear to us, but we would take it as a severe way to punish the accused, so he or she would not have something tangible to offer in future.
