This Tuesday (20), the Justice of Rio de Janeiro determined that the businessman Glaidson Acásio dos Santos, known as “Bitcoin Pharaoh” disburse, in up to 72 hours, R$ 19 billion.
This amount will go to creditors and investors harmed by his scheme involving cryptocurrencies.
Judge Rosália Monteiro Figueira, of the 3rd Federal Criminal Court of Rio, determined that the amount be deposited in court and then transferred to investors and creditors of GAS Consultoria.
In addition to the amount that must be paid within 72 hours, the judge ordered that Glaidson’s passport be collected.
The Bitcoin Pharaoh, who has been in prison since August 2021, tried to launch himself as a candidate for federal deputy for Rio. But, he was soon barred by the Regional Electoral Court (TRE-RJ), due to the crimes he committed.
Last week, the businessman obtained a habeas corpus on the arrest warrant in one of the processes for which he responds. However, he remains in prison because of other warrants that exist on him.
In summary, the Pharaoh of Bitcoin is in custody on suspicion of operating a fraudulent cryptocurrency scheme started in Cabo Frio, in the Lagos Region, Rio, through his company Gas Consultoria.
