Virgil Griffith, the former head of special projects for the Ethereum Foundation, is free on $1 million bail. He was charged with violating sanctions following a trip to North Korea in April to deliver a lecture on cryptocurrency.

Here’s a clue: if you’re going to teach North Korea how to use cryptocurrency to evade sanctions, don’t post your visa on Twitter. Particularly if the U.S. State Department has warned you not to go.
