Unauthorized withdrawal of cryptocurrency from a wallet is considered theft in most countries, said Moscow Digital School lecturer Yuri Brisov. He added that a report should be filed at the place where the offence was committed. This can be both a plus and a minus.
It is a plus because there is no specific territorial link to the wallet. Therefore, de facto, law enforcement agencies may not be restricted in terms of territoriality. The disadvantage is that, for example in Russia, the Ministry of Internal Affairs uses the fact of uncertain territoriality as a reason to refuse.
