Bitcoin Fog is a centralised cryptocurrency tumbler for bitcoin.[1][2][3][4][5]

In December 2013 the site was used to launder a part of the 96,000 BTC from the robbery of Sheep Marketplace.[6]

In February 2015, a total of 7,170 bitcoin was stolen from the Chinese exchange Bter.com and traced back to cryptocurrency-tumblers like Bitcoin Fog.[7]
