The former president of Nissan who fled Japan used Bitcoin to pay his associates, and Coinbase provided evidence of the transfer

Carlos Ghosn, the former president of Nissan and Renault Motors of France, who had been caught in the corruption scandal before, was revealed that his son used Coinbase to pay about $600,000 in Bitcoin to two men who helped him escape to help Carlos Ghosn escape from Japan and return to Lebanon. U.S. prosecutors stated that the Coinbase exchange has provided evidence of the transfer to Japanese investigators, showing that a transaction of 63 bitcoins between January and May 2020 is one of the evidence.
