Media outlets in Norway report on the kidnap of Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, the 68-year old wife of Norwegian 172 richest man. The kidnappers are demanding a sum of 9million Euros in Monero (XMR), a privacy-centric cryptocurrency, as a ransom for the 68-year old victim.

I wonder if the ransomer will be stupid enough to treat XMR as an absolute black box, and go immediately sell it on an exchange. Because if the ransomee combines data with the exchange, they can basically prove that the funds came from the ransom in that case.
