Bad news from the Crypto world came from South Africa. The founders of South African crypto exchange company Africrypt made the biggest Crypto heist in history. They defrauded their investors for a total of 69,000 Bitcoins and their whereabouts are currently unknown. With this amount, they have become the largest crypto scam ever made.

The company was founded in 2019 in South Africa by Ameer Cajee and his brother Rajees Cajee. They have grown very quickly. Over time, the managers of Africrypt, which has become one of the most popular crypto exchanges in the region, opened an office.
With this heist, they stole the largest amount of Bitcoin in the history of Cripto. This amount, which was approximately 2 billion dollars with a value of 25 June 2021, was recorded as one of the largest frauds in the history of the region.
Investors spoke with a Cape Town-based law firm. When the company could not find the location of the founders, a national mobilization was announced. The world’s major stock exchanges have also been warned of any exchange possibility.
