Cryptocurrency exchange Wex, successor of the infamous BTC-e, has a new owner. Dmitry Havchenko, a former Ukrainian entrepreneur turned separatist fighter, has reportedly bought the coin trading platform through a family member. He now wants to restore it and also to track down the lost “Vinnik’s treasure.”

Wex’s operator, Singapore-based World Exchange Services, has been officially acquired by Havchenko’s daughter, 29-year-old Darya, BBC Russian Service reported. Local authorities did not allow her father to register the company under his name, probably because of his participation in the armed conflict in the region of Donbass.
