ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's Supreme Court on Wednesday paved the way for the extradition to the United States of Russian bitcoin fraud suspect Alexander Vinnik.

Vinnik is accused by U.S. authorities of laundering $4 billion (£3 billion) via a platform trading the digital currency bitcoin. He denies the allegations and had fought a ruling to extradite him at Greece's top court. Judges rejected his appeal.
