How did E&Y find out they were empty? I thought it was uncrackable - the article says analytics, but either the right people can crack it or the key wasn't "lost". I just breezed the article so may have missed something though.

You can track the chain to see all transactions in and out of a wallet.

How do we know that the NSA didn't invent block-chain and bit-coin for this very purpose?

It's as good an explanation of who developed it as any other I've heard. would explain why no one has stepped forth and claimed to have invented it....

what i find pretty incredible is that you can legally setup a company , own shares and operate a company by using an alias. (which nobody can identify. I assume the Globe's info is from an insider source )

i wonder how many alias are used for other companies. Could a person be a hundred different shareholders with 100 different aliases?

So now you are suspicious? The plan is working.

One thing I've noticed in the past few months is that there are much fewer cryptocurrency boosters appearing in discussions like this. It seems there are fewer articles in general about cryptocurrency. Crypto isn't dead, but the manic boom is probably over.

Can just employ others to 'own' it on paper while you are beneficial owner amongst many other ways of doing this.

That is likely the most common scam used, was an article published not long ago about a Housekeeper that on paper was worth millions, as the "CEO" of a shell corporation.

Yeah eventually every bullshit scenario gets too hard to bullshit for.

It's happening here in the UK with Brexit. Two years ago if you posted an anti-Brexit post you would get 60+ raging posts saying you were a traitor and not 'believing hard enough'. Now you might get one or two posts from bots with 20 followers or fewer.

Reality hits home sometime.
