The divorce proceedings of a New York couple took a turn after a forensic accountant helped track down the husband’s 12 Bitcoin (BTC) stash, which he intended to hide from his wife.

The couple in question were married for 10 years, but the man’s wife suspected that her husband did not reveal all his assets, which would get split between the two following their divorce. The housewife — addressed pseudonymously as Sarita — revealed to CNBC that her husband was earning $3 million annually, which was not reflective of his declared assets.

The woman appointed a forensic accountant, who eventually found that her husband failed to declare 12 BTC — worth roughly $500,000 — stored in an undisclosed crypto wallet. Having no clue about the Bitcoin investment, Sarita stated:

As a result, the woman’s husband will have to part ways with some of his BTC holdings. Tracking crypto investments is easier than its fiat counterparts, considering that blockchain technology preserves all transactions and does not allow external factors to modify or delete entries.
