Exchanges are requesting verifications (for KYC) and it's an obvious wrong move for him.

Not very exchange is requiring verification.
Especially not for crypto-to-crypto trades.

If the attacker is somewhat competent he probably used an exchange without verification with a proxy to exchange the btc to an anonymous currency (e.g. monero).
From there on it would be a pretty easy task to sell those monero on an exchange which complies with the KYC policy.

Agree, even just using up a common mixing service would really make those bitcoins to be fully untraceable.This is why its really impossible for recovery or do know where those bitcoins go. 33 Bitcoins is already a hell lot of money 293,900 usd as of this writing on its current exchange.For now you cant do nothing but to move on since those funds are completely gone. Sorry to hear about such big loss.

I'm still completely unclear on the how the OP reckons the theft took place. Someone knew a password? Where and how was the password stored? There was a physical theft of some sort?

Give us the full details and maybe someone might know something. If not then at least others might learn from it.

This is a good prerequisite to get your money back!
If the thief already has transfered the coins to an exchange your chance of getting evidence is pretty good i would say.

Knowing the thief in 'real life' is always advantageous in those kind of thefts.

In most countries the value (you should get back) is calculated in FIAT-value at the time of the theft.
This probably won't get you your whole BTC back, but at the majority.

Make sure to provide your law enforcement agency all required information.


And please keep us informed on what happens next. This might be useful for a ton of people here.
You are not the first, and will not be the last one being 'physically' robbed.

If you have the files on your hard drive you are still able to recover it i think.

You should buy a new hardware like the one you have and do a full clone, to let the original one untouched, then try to recover the files of the new one (the cloned one) with software like recovery my files , recuva...

Maybe you can find something. As far as i know even if you format a hdd if you do not write data on it again the old data its fully recovereable.

Sorry to hear that story mate
