Forensic accountants have helped one woman uncover her husband’s hidden Bitcoin stash worth $500,000 during a divorce proceeding in New York. After 10 years of marriage, the wife, Sarita, suspected that her husband was hiding assets that would get split between the two. Despite her husband earning $3 million annually, which was not reflective of his declared assets, Sarita had no idea that her husband had invested in Bitcoin. A forensic accountant eventually found that her husband failed to declare 12 BTC stored in an undisclosed crypto wallet. As a result, the woman’s husband will have to part 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 modifications or deletions of any entries.
Furthermore, the article mentions that countless couples have been getting married in metaverse-based virtual venues since 2021. This new trend allows family members and friends to witness the joyous occasions from anywhere in the world.
