Colonial Pipeline paid nearly $5 million to Darkside to restore its disabled computer network, of which the U.S. Department of Justice was able to trace and seize 63.7 Bitcoins (US$2.3 million as of 06/07/2021).<ref>[https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/07/us/politics/pipeline-attack.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage Pipeline Attack Follow-up, NY Times]</ref>
