As part of an effort against entities that attempted to influence the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), recently announced sweeping sanctions to curb the work of Russian online influence outfit the Internet Research Agency (IRA). This included adding several bitcoin addresses to its “Specially Designated Nationals” list of entities that U.S. citizens are blocked or prohibited from dealing with.

The recent announcement noted that the Treasury has targeted Pakistan-based Second Eye Solution (SES), which it claims “specializes in creating and selling fraudulent identities and has assisted the IRA in concealing its identity to evade sanctions.” Specifically, it has identified digital currency addresses, including bitcoin addresses, used by SES.
