Title: In January I was a millionaire thanks to Nano, now I have $25,000 AMA

I was replying to his post, but my reply ended up being a bit too large as a reply and steered off-topic, albeit an interesting one. So I decided to make it its own post, because there may be a good lessons to be learned and hoping some will come forward with good information to be shared.
I hope it can help anyone on this sub avoid the costly mistakes that I made. Here it goes: FLAIR: LEGAL (not in the list)
----
u/nanoissuperior are you who I think you are? I won't give out any further identifying clues, but I happen to know someone in the exact same position that could have written that exact same headline. If you read the first paragraph, you'll know if you know me.
The person I know bought Nano really early, based on a tip from a friend. I got in much later. By the time he told me it had already spiked to the $5 range, when I ended up buying. I then sold in the $20's so it was a good buy nonetheless. We were former colleagues at a large, large software company somewhere in the PNW, I left the company to venture out on my own and try to launch some projects I had in mind and relocated overseas for a few years. We lost contact with each other during my time away, but we connected again during the market runup and started exchanging coin information on a daily basis during the big bull run of late 2017. That was a crazy time.... the market trend was a few degrees short of vertical for pretty much all coins!

Hey, guess what? Now that I think about it, I could have written that same headline myself! In January 2018 I was a Millionaire too! Not with Nano, but thanks to purchasing a good chunk of Bitcoin in 2011 at $1.20 each. I ended up a single digit millionaire with what I had left in Bitcoin around January of 2018.
And, just like you, today, from all that wealth, I have about $30.000 left, with little to show for. Can we call that even? Although my disaster was not caused entirely by market fluctuation; Mine is a more complex story and I am going to mention it, because hopefully, it could serve as a lesson to be learned for any crypto holder out there, so they don't make the make mistake I made: Don't trust anyone. Always be skeptical and watch out for your own interests. Anyhow, here it goes:
After 5 years overseas, I had enough and wanted to come back to the States. My wife stated her preference to stay abroad, but eventually, she conceded albeit reluctantly. We chose a small town in CO to settle, and landed in November of 2017. We had plans to settle down and considered purchasing a home with my/our new fortune, based on the market price during that period. At the same time, I was also hesitant about the inherent tax payments due caused by such large liquidation. I was trying to have to pay taxes as far away as possible. So, I decided to wait till New Year's Eve and started liquidating my crypto on January 1st, 2018 right after midnight. This way, I would have 16 months (till April, 2019) to pay any capital gains taxes, and I was confident at the time that the market would give me that for free, especially at the pace that it was going. I have been an early adopter and have since then acquired the high levels of verification and trading limits per week, with many exchanges, but for a large sum like this, I needed several separate transactions, over the course of several weeks, especially wanting to do it with a US-based exchange that was linked to a US bank accounts, to avoid overseas wire transfers, meaning more fees. (Yes, I did look at all OTC options, but for reasons not relevant to the story, I couldn't make it happen, so I had to use the traditional Exchange channels for asset liquidation).
My wife and I, initially had some fundamental disagreements on the gross amount to be spent and the type of property we should be purchasing. I wanted a smaller place, with a denser, younger community, where there'd be kids our son's age for him to play. She insisted that we should go big; we had been traveling for so many years, and we had not been able to call any of our past residences our home. It was time to settle and nest; She convinced me that we should own a property of our own that we would be proud of living in for years. One that we could own outright and would not easily outgrow. We ended up splurging and purchased in cash two luxury cars for ourselves and set our sights on a large dream house in the city's Golf & Country Club, free and clear, for us and our two kids. I don't even play golf, nor do I even like it, but, if it makes her happy and it is within the safe margins of making it happen, I figured, why not? My concerns were largely financial and the numbers were adding up. It was a bit tight against my personal safe margins, but, at the same time, I was imagining to never have to make, or even have to think about, a car or home mortgage payment ever again! Bitcoin is on a roll and there is no sign of it stopping. Fine. Let's do it, before I change my mind.
Now, I admit I was extremely lucky with choosing the time of when to sell the assets. I had no clue the market would take a dive in February, and so it seemed to many that I had timed the market perfectly, selling most of my coins in the first two weeks of January of 2018. Many called me a genius for selling at the very top, as if I had some sort of wisdom to know when it would drop; the truth is much less flattering; it was nothing but dumb luck, based on me wanting to pay taxes in 2018 and defer to 2019. Awesome, well done! Yeah? well, slow down, son, not so fast.
So, I gather the 7-digit lumpsum in January 2018 and we write a check for the full amount at closing in February on the property of her dreams. A property that could easily be showcased on a luxury Real Estate magazine cover. Also, remember we had just moved back to the United States with just a few suitcases each from overseas. We had no furniture, kitchenware, curtains, TV's, bed sheets, winter clothing and so many other essential things that one usually purchases over time, but which we now had to purchase all at once. Not a problem, Bitcoin had dropped slightly but still well above $15k, I believe, at the time. And, earlier, in January, I had diligently taken this expense into account and effortlessly set aside a small fortune for equipping such a large house with everything we would ever need, brand new. It seemed we were protagonists of one of the Home Makeover Shows.
Finally, after working day and night, prepping the house non-stop for days and when every piece of furniture had finally arrived, been unpacked and carried to its corresponding room, it seemed most of the essentials were in place and the hard work was done. I longed for pouring myself a Scotch and to finally sit down and enjoy the fruits of my labor. I head downstairs to the dedicated walk-in, cigar-humidor / wine / Scotch cellar in the basement and grab the better bottle of Whisky of the few bottles of Scotch that I had bought earlier in the week. On my way up, I remember feeling a sense of calm, combined with a glow of excitement and this undescribable profound inner peace, all at once. This was such a rare, natural, non-drug induced high that I had never experienced. It felt so good! This sense of accomplishment of achieving that one thing I had been chasing and longing for my entire life. I had expected I would be chasing this goal for the next 15-20 years, and yet, here it was. No, where I was, was even better than expected! A place where not even my parents, who still have to make their monthly mortgage payments. I had done it! With a smile from ear to ear, I take a deep breath of relief and while looking around the property, I think to myself: "It's perfect, everything is in place and I can finally call this our home. We are so lucky and we are going to live a great life. A life that few can only dream of. So many concerns will be lifted and become redundant. Everything will be better. I'll start a fire in one of our two fireplaces and I am going to begin enjoying my semi-retired life with the first sip of my drink. That will be the official start of our new life".
I head over to the kitchen to get a glass and some ice cubes, while I struggle to find which one is the freezer among the many drawers in the kitchen. It was then when I notice a handwritten note placed front and center on the kitchen counter. It is from my wife and read: "There is no easy way to say this, so I am just going to say it..... I want to legally divorce [ ...]". It continued saying that she had taken our son, and had unequivocally decided to leave me. She had already filed the paperwork for divorce and that I should expect to be served in the morning.
My bliss had lasted less than 5 minutes and in less than two seconds, it turned dark, somber and I saw it all crumbling down in front of me. Like a long-awaited rocket launch, years in preparation, which then unexpectedly explodes on the launch pad during the countdown. My stomach, heart and everything in my body just sank and melted into one ball of poison in my core. I felt like throwing up. I was completely blindsided; she had played the game all along, not giving me the slightest hint of what was being concocted in the background. She had already engaged with her lawyers weeks beforehand. Her mother was already in town from another state to help out with I don't know what. I had been gaslighted and was threatened by her that I needed to see a psychiatrist due to a change in my temper that I had supposedly developed - my temper was awesome: with BTC at that price? Everything was perfect! But I obeyed and went anyhow (this would later fit her story that she had to leave with the child because she feared for her safety due to my supposed temper for which I was under treatment, therefore, I must have this temper problem, see?). Also, the purchase of the overpriced home also seemed clearly premeditated: Price was the main driver of the decision making; not location, demographics, taxes, etc. It was the wrong neighborhood for us (people much older than us, retired, golfers and no kids the same age as our son to play with). Our house happened to also be the most expensive in the neighborhood. I can see it all so clearly now.
See, your crypto coins on the blockchain, are not within the US court's jurisdiction (or, at least, it's quite debatable - a gray area - ask me for the seed and I can tell you that I may have the seed, or that I may not have the seed, I may have the wrong seed, I may have forgotten it, I may have lost it - you can't prove I did not forget, or lost it, etc). However, once it is in FIAT in a bank, or invested in a property, the courts can rule on the asset(s), freeze, disburse or order a sale of the property, etc. It's done all the time.
Also, the coins were technically mine, and by definition private property (not to be divided during the divorce) as they were acquired before the marriage. I could not prove its origins (I bought many of them via direct messaging members on Bitcointalk.org and mining rather than exchanges, so no records, receipts or nothing to prove otherwise: the big exchanges like BitStamp and Coinbase didn't start operations till 2013, if I m not mistaken. Instead, I would talk to one of the forum members offering coins we'd agree on a price, I'd send a check to wherever the individual seller instructed me to (Russia, Bulgaria, Japan, UK. etc) and the coins would be deposited to whatever address I provided. Yes, it was quite crude at the time.
However, once I converted my coins to cash and used that cash to buy a property for the benefit of the family, it became common property and thus she then had rights to a portion of it when divided between the two parties should a divorce occur - which ended up being almost 3/4 of all assets.
I was robbed in broad daylight. By the one person, I trusted with my life. The one you should trust with your life. Your life partner. And while I was in complete denial, trying to bargain, I waited too long to obtain good legal representation. When I finally ended up getting a lawyer, I was quite distraught and I clearly did not do the proper research and this resulted in a less than stellar performance and detrimental to me at many key steps in the process. I had to switch legal representation right before mediation and I can't blame my new lawyer either, as (s)he did not have the required time to catch up on all the details, (s)he did his/her best, but I was ultimately strongarmed into conceding my soon-to-be-ex-wife to let her return to the house, in exchange to obtain 50% of my son's custody, with serious and strict clauses I had to abide by. So, I had to move out, find a hole in the wall in a student apartment, pay my rent and pay our kids pre-school, while she lives grandiose, without monthly payments in the country club, till the house sells, which will likely be in the spring of next year. Nice!
Due to my delay, legal mishandling and somehow every other element in her favor, she inexplicably ended up with around 3/4 of the worth of all assets, free and clear, no taxes due. Mind you, she has never financially contributed, nor made a single $ during our entire marriage. She has never worked and had $0 in her pocket when we married. She didn't even have a checking account, well in her thirties. She is no dummy; she is street smart, knows how to manipulate people, get her way with flirting and charm, while I am more intellectual and book smart. and She beat me hands-down. She is walking away with a sum of, not quite 7 figures, but close.
With what I am left with from the sale of the house, I am responsible to pay for all the capital gains taxes from the liquidation to the IRS, which are due in April 2019. I don't expect there to be more left over than the estimated $30k mentioned above.
Hate the market all you want, I made peace with the market and am keeping busy at hating my ex for a while for putting me in the same situation. She tripped me 1 yard before the finish line and pushed me in the prickly bushes, to cross it by herself. Go figure. When I am done hating her, I'll get back to rebuilding my life again from scratch. I am not worried, I have done it before. Just pissed, I was so close and that I was so naive to not see it coming.
Sorry, I am not meaning to hijack the thread, just wanted you to know that others may have lost more than just "free" money; money we didn't really have to work for. We were the lucky ones. It is what I keep telling myself to stop me from jumping off a bridge.
PS - Woah: Sorry for the wall of text; I was just going to write the first paragraph and ended up venting about my current situation. I know, I should take this issue to /depressed, /exes or /whereisthenearestbridgeIcanjumpfrom.
Hopefully, this can be a lesson to those holding crypto and some can learn what NOT to do. I learned the hard way and was left with nothing. Don't be a nice guy. Don't trust anyone with your crypto. Anyhow, I am sure either our vigilant subreddit bot, or one of the mods will remove my post for not adhering to rule, and if not, I am sure that you fine people will downvote me to hell. Go ahead. Take away from me the little Karma I left too! Thanks!

I learned many lessons, but here are some key ones [IANAL - any crypto-educated AL opinion appreciated here, thanks] :
- Understand the concept of private property - property you acquire before getting married. INAL - this depends on the state legislation, but it is hard to prove with crypto, especially if you obtained your crypto through foreign exchanges, outside of legal jurisdictions, the petitioner might not understand or willing to invest in obtaining subpoenas and requests to businesses operating overseas, as this may result costly.
- Get a lawyer who understands, or is willing to understand crypto, its benefits of being somewhat unreachable and how that can work for you. Don't let them shortchange you with: "well, let's just convert the rest to cash, because that I understand" type of reasoning.
- If you do go to mediation, the above applies as well. This arbitrator or mediator needs to be one that understands the intrinsic details of crypto - for example, during the ATH, I bought 6 digits worth in $USD of Stellar. I used the very first version of the software, supporting Stellar on my hardware device, and put it all in a cold storage wallet somewhere around January. I routinely checked on my coins on the blockchain and they are there. A few months later, I try to access my account and the device returns a different public address, which contains 0 funds. I am still trying to debug this issue with the manufacturer, but the fact is that I was accused of hiding these coins or negligence and was demanded that I paid half of what was lost. or not lost, out of my pocket for money that I didn't have access either. I tried to explain it in the simplest terms, there are risks involved with using first come software. There is no 1800 number, mo tech support. no CEO, no, you can't call the BBB and complain, etc and no one seemed to be able to understand, nor willing to either. It became a huge roadblock for which I had to concede, not cash, but a concession, I was not wanting to concede. The petitioner leaned on the fact that I was either wilfully cheating or stupid enough to lose the coins and managed to create enough doubt in my character and integrity and there was nothing rational I could explain that she, or anyone else in the room would understand. Perhaps mutually contracting a seasoned crypto expert that can offer a neutral view and give his/her opinion might be worth considering. Andreas, where were you when I needed you? :)
- Other examples were some coins I had bought in 2012 and gifted to some of her family's kids. I was holding these, till they would turn 16 for them to pay themselves their college, or so I told them. These coins were demanded back by the petitioner. Ok, I suggested that I would send them, but with a CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY value with a block height of let's say,10 years from now, out of fear that she would spend the coins and the kids would never know (they are toddlers). No one understood what I was talking about, I was made out the crazy one, I gave up, sent her the coins, unlocked and, just as I expected, within 20 minutes of receiving them, she spent $1200 worth of it (for a flight, I think). If you are the only one speaking your language, no one is willing to listen or make an effort to understand you.
- It appears my coins were private property, which means, that I acquired them before the marriage and in case of divorce, if I have not moved them or used them for the common good of the marriage, then they remain mine. However, I liquidated them and cash ended up in my checking account to be used to buy groceries, cars and eventually a house, and it is then that they became common property. Only once they landed in my checking account on which she is named on. It appears that had I taken proper legal precautions with documentation, or a company/trust, where that money would have gone, instead of my checking accounts, elsewhere, I would have still been able to be the legal proprietor of the resulting cash. I can't quite remember the details, but it as something that was explained to me afterward, and I honestly think I just tuned it out, because it made me sick to know I could have held on to my wealth. Perhaps a lawyer can chime in? Again, much of the lack of information and every misstep taken was because of dealing with people that are accustomed to traditional assets and will not deviate from it. Crypto is different and is treated differently. It is so important to know the strengths and weaknesses when going into litigation about something that people don't understand.
- Some more I can think of, but this post is getting way out of hand in size. Feel free to comment/suggest your own and I'll add more to the comments.

Credits to: u/nanoissuperior Thanks for your post, it inspired me to write this one. Anyone, any karma you feels needs to go his way, for providing the source of inspiration, please give to O-OP.

TL;DR: Wife, having contributed $0 during entire marriage, waited until I cashed out all my crypto at the top of the bull market in January 2018, for a nice seven-figure amount, and then immediately divorced me for the money.

Edit: added TL;DR

The International 2018 in Vancouver FAQ (Updated!)

Hey there again, you punks.
So with a tip coming from some of the moderators on the board, I've decided just to quickly update this FAQ that I wrote a few months back since TI is next week and I'm sure many of you still have a ton of questions. I've gotten some more information that I can pass down to you in regards to Vancouver but also now TI as well, including updated marijuana laws and beer recommendations.
Two quick notes:

VANCOUVER WEATHER

This summer has been an extremely hot season in Vancouver (at least in Vancouverite standards). Like anyone who attended in Seattle last year, there is noticeable smoke in the air in the city due to the fires all over the Pacific North West. If you have breathing issues or health related problems do to particles in the air, be advised that there is currently an Air Quality Advisory in effect so act accordingly. Wind/Rain will most likely clear up any issues going into next week, but just a heads up in case new fires flare up or we aren't blessed with some light rain. Forecast is looking to be sunny through midweek and the finals, with an average of about 23-25C.

THE PACIFIC NATIONAL EXHIBITION IS OPEN!

A staple for Vancouver residents since 1910, the PNE will be open from August 18th-September 3rd (closed on August 20th & 27th). If you're looking to do something after a midweek day, the PNE is the perfect place to go checkout for a fun night out filled with events, concerts, beer gardens, crazy carny food, rides, maybe BSJ, shopping and a lot more. This article will tell you everything you need to know about the PNE, how to get there and what's going on.
ALSO BOYZ II MEN AUGUST 18TH GET HYPED.

PLACES TO STAY

Yes, but it's not exactly regulated by AirBnB. Feel free to stay at one through AirBnB but know that it might be a little tricky to deal with issues if they come up with your rental. Also while you're at it, check out VRBO.
The general piece of advice you'll get from any local about where to stay for TI is going to be anywhere that's on the Skytrain Expo Line (the line in dark blue). The Expo Line will take you to Stadium-Chinatown station, which is where Rogers Arena is 30 seconds away. As in Seattle, the closer to downtown you are, the more expensive it is to stay.
Unlike Seattle Center, there aren't very many budget hotels left, if at all in the Downtown core. The cheaper hostels are available, though fair warning, many of them are placed on Granville Street, which is a place that many Vancouverites will tell you to avoid while you're here (Though I have never stayed at a hostel on Granville, if anyone has an experience, feel free to share). Check out the Ramada Inn and the Days Inn near Waterfront for some cheaper-ish options.
In my mind, there are two places that I would keep a look-out for avoiding while you visit Vancity.
  1. Granville Street. During the day time it's normally fine, filled with some cool shops (Golden Age Collectibles, The Rock Shop, Movieland Arcade) but it's packed to the absolute max with dumbasses at night due to the amount of night clubs. There's police around every weeknight, but since you're in Vancouver for a good time, head towards Gastown, Chinatown or Main Street for places to party.
  2. Downtown East Side. If you've researched anything about Vancouver, you'll know that this area as where a large portion of the cities homeless reside. There is rampant drug use, poverty and sex work in this neighborhood, focused mainly between 5-10 blocks in the area of Main/Hastings. That being said, the community is an especially strong one, with fantastic human beings supporting the less fortunate. Though there isn't too much danger in terms of being robbed, you might want to just avoid the area at night. Be respectful to the people of this community and you'll have no problems.

TRANSIT

Sadly, no there isn't. We know, it absolutely sucks and everyone in Vancouver is aware. Your options are public transit or a taxi.
Super shitty if you don't like paying for parking. If you can, park outside of the Downtown core near a Skytrain and then head over to the Arena. Commercial Drive is pretty good for this if you can find certain spots. Tinseltown as well if you buy a movie ticket on non-event days.
If you've ever been to any major city, you'll notice that Vancouver shares the same load-up card/tap system that places like London share. It's called Compass Card and it's fairly easy to use. Just load up money onto the card, tap it when you enter and tap when you leave. It'll do all the calculations for you. Note that certain zones will cost more just due to how far you're traveling.
Yes it does! Car2Go and Evo are two of Vancouver's most popular car share services. Hot tip would be to register before you head over to Vancouver and it'll help mitigate the fact that UbeLyft aren't in Vancouver just yet. Just drive safely.
The easiest way to get to downtown from YVR, if you aren't getting picked up/taking a taxi is to take the Canada Line. It will take you directly to Waterfront station, from there you can take multiple buses, the Expo Line (the main line that will take you to Rogers Arena) or the Seabus (going to North VancouveLonsdale).

ALCOHOL

19 years old.
Vancouver has an exploding craft beer culture and you'll be happy to find that the variety of different beers/ciders to drink is absolutely massive, probably to the point of being intimidating.
Here are some of my favorite breweries and the beers that you should look out for when you're at the liquor store/pub:
Twin Sails Brewing
Dat Juice Pale Ale
Two Straws MilkShake IPA
Short Pants Mosaic IPA
Brassneck Brewing
Changeling Sour
Passive Aggressive IPA
Bjorn Again Farmhouse Ale
Steel & Oak
Changeling Sour
Passive Agressive IPA
Bjorn Again Farmhouse Ale
Bomber Brewing
Bomber Parklife Passionfruit Ale
Bomber Pilsner
Bomber Snow White IPA
Yes. First, there isn't any drinking in public if you already didn't know. Second, you must have TWO pieces of ID on you whenever you go to buy drinks in case you're asked for your ID. First piece must be photo ID, the second piece must be something with your name on it (in order for bartenders/servers to validate the first piece). I see a lot of tourists thrown off by this, so just know that Vancouver's liquor laws are much more strict than other places.
I've heard from a few Vancouver residents that this isn't exactly enforced harshly, but just to note that it is an actual law. Piece of mind.
%.05. There will be a ton of pubcrawls and side events going on for people that are attending TI and I'm sure that you'll be blasted one night or another. Please don't drink and drive. If you need a cab, here are the numbers you can contact in order to grab a taxi from downtown.
Yellow Cab: (604) 681-1111
Black Top Cab: (604) 731-1111
MacLure's Cabs: (604) 831-1111
Also, a note for people from outside of Vancouver: the cab drivers in this city are notorious for being hard to deal with at times. Broken debit machines, cash up front, not providing receipts. Use your common sense to get you through pushy cabbies. If they have a broken debit machine and they are still driving, kindly reject them and give your business to another cabbie that will. UbeLyft will be here soon and karma will bite them back.
If at anytime you are in an emergency and don't know what to do, please DM me and I will provide my contact info.

FOOD

Vancouver is a glutenous paradise of places to eat. Instead of giving you specific places to go eat, here are some links that you might find helpful in terms of recommendations:
Meowjin's Guide to TI8
The 38 Essential Vancouver Restaurants
It's To Die For List
This is not confirmed at the moment, but if the rules were anything like Seattle, you will be able to bring outside food into the arena. You are not permitted to bring liquids into the venue. You'll have to dump out your water bottle and refill it once inside. Rogers Arena might have different policies, but thankfully the venue has twice the amount of food stalls including a much more varied selection.
Everyone from Vancouver attending will hate me, but this is going to be one of the hottest tips I can give you: there is a Costco food court DIRECTLY across the street on the lower level of Rogers Arena that DOES NOT require a membership in order to buy food. It is the only Costco food court in Canada that doesn't need a membership to eat there. Hot dogs, poutine, pizza, soft drinks, ice cream and it's all lovingly Costco cheap. Enjoy!

MONEY

Visa/Mastercard are widely accepted everywhere. Cards such as American Express/Discover are also accepted most places, though a few places might reject them for whatever reason (higher charge rates, issues with their machines etc..) Best case would be to make sure you have a Visa/Mastercard with you at all times as a back-up in case you run into any issues. Most places in Vancouver also allow you to use Android/Apple Pay now as well. No bitcoin though.
Well, that's entirely up to you. If you're staying the full week, a few hundred dollars in spare Canadian currency won't hurt you, especially if majority of your spending is going to be on plastic. There's going to be the Secret Shop, but that'll be done through online ordering and not cash payments. Just don't come with nothing. Worst case, always have at least $30-$40 cash on you just in case you run into a bind. It's really entirely up to you and how you plan on spending your time here. Do note that because of the low Canadian dollar, don't be surprised if the price of certain things is higher than usual.
By far it would be the Vancouver Bullion & Currency Exchange due to their lower exchange rates. Banks will more than likely charge you higher rates than the VBCE.

ETIQUETTE

Due to the amount of fires that have started in the Pacific North West the past month or so, please do not throw your cigarette/joint butts into the street, sidewalk, bushes or wherever that isn't a proper garbage. You'll get a ton of dirty looks by locals if you do otherwise.
Canadians are known to be rather polite, we'll answer questions for you or guide you in the right direction (as long as we aren't in a huge rush). As long as you're respectful of the people around you, take care of your hygiene, don't spit on the ground, talk over people in conversation or just avoiding being a total dick, you'll be fine. Though Vancouver is a somewhat socially cold city, that's mainly in dating circles. Get some new Bumble photos up!
Most places won't have the tip included in your bill. It's common courtesy to tip between %10-%15 of your final bill if you enjoyed your meal/drink/service. Feel free to go higher if you had a really excellent time. Some places do include the tip in the bill, but will have it noted usually at the bottom of the menu.
A few. Remove your backpack when you're boarding a bus/SkyTrain in order to create more space for the people around you. Hygiene again is a big one. Remember to fill your Compass card and check your remaining balance at least once a day in case you're transiting a lot. If you see elderly/disabled/parents with strollers attempt to come on board, the polite thing to do would be to offer your seat etc..
Don't worry at all! Vancouver is an extremely multicultural city and the residents here are used to hearing many different languages daily. Best bet is if you struggle communicating with anyone for any reason, download the Google Translate app and use it to answer questions you might have in a discussion.
Use common sense. Most players/talent would be more than willing to sign an autograph or pose for a photo with you. But also be aware that much of the on-screen talent (Slacks, Kaci, panel members) will often have to be running from segment to segment, taking in matches and so on. If they seem to have a minute, ask nicely, thank them for their time and cross one off of the bucket list.
Don't throw things at Slacks.

THE ARENA

No update on this. Rogers Arena is mainly a concrete concourse, surrounded by a viaduct and multiple lower roads. Unlike Seattle Center (which had multiple fields and smaller available venues), the only place large enough outside the Arena that could hold a large crowd with a big screen would most likely be the "main" entrance through Expo Blvd/Pat Quinn Way. There are a few other options in the area, but we're going to have to wait to see how creative Valve is with the space around the Arena. Perhaps they rent out the adjacent parking lots?
No update on this also, but again, there's a lack of outdoor space beyond the concrete concourse. Sportsbar Live will be open, which also gives a view of inside the Arena while you're eating/drinking. But again, it's indoors.
From what I remember from Canucks games, yes, there are stations where you can plug your phone in to charge. But don't be surprised if a company like NVIDIA pops up a charging station outside much like in Seattle.
18,630.
One of the more obvious differences that most people will find from Key Arena to Rogers Arena, is that unlike Key Arena, Rogers doesn't have an open space concept between levels. Meaning, you won't be able to just look up to the third floor and see players hanging out like you normally would. This year, they most likely will be held in the boxes above or in the dressing rooms in the lower levels. Look for autograph times scheduled throughout the week to see your favorite players.
The only thing right now is a Vancouver Whitecaps (MLS) game on August 18th and a BC Lions (CFL) on the 25th. So if you really feel inclined, now you know.

WEED

When: On October 17th, weed will officially be legalized in British Columbia and most parts of Canada.
How: Normally you need a medicinal prescription to purchase marijuana legally. Though, because of the soon to be legalization coming up in a few months, most dispensaries will most likely write you a prescription if you tell them a valid medical reason for the marijuana (Trouble sleeping, chronic joint pain, back pain, headaches, trouble eating etc.). My friends who smoke themselves told me that hot tip, so do with it what you will. Please DO NOT buy weed from a source that isn't verified by another trusted person or a licensed dispensary. You never know what your weed could be laced with.
Where: Here are some dispensaries located close to Rogers Arena.
Bloom Medical Dispensary
The Dub Dispensary
The Medical Cannibis Dispensary
You can't smoke anywhere that frequents children, even if there aren't kids around. So no beaches, public parks, playgrounds etc..
So just, anywhere that's away from people that don't want to partake essentially.
????????????

TICKETS

If you weren't able to buy tickets from Ticket Master, you have a few options.
Post in the TI8 Vancouver Subreddit and ask if anyone has a spare ticket.
Buying tickets from scalpers in front of Rogers Arena is fairly easy and shouldn't be difficult if you understand the basics of haggling.
  1. Know what you're comfortable paying and stick to it. Always remember that number.
  2. Be prepared to just walk away. The longer you stay negotiating, the more you show the scalper how important it is for you to buy the tickets. Play the long game.
  3. The less you talk, the less information you give the scalper. If he says he's got a Midweek ticket for $300, shrug and say no thanks.
  4. Have money in your hand/wallet when you're trying to buy tickets. When they see that the cash is right there, they'll be more inclined to just make the deal and move onto the next one.
You will most likely miss the opening ceremonies, but after that the prices for Midweek tickets will normalize and scalpers will want to just get rid of their tickets at a lesser price.
The advantage you have in this instance is that Vancouver, outside of the LoL tournament at Pacific Colosseum, doesn't have much experience with esports tournaments. So scalpers themselves won't have the same level of patience. The longer you wait to buy your tickets from them, the cheaper you can get them for. Only downside is that you'll be missing games.
The other thing you can do is literally just walk around the outside of the Arena and spot non-scalpers with extra tickets. There are always people who buy extra tickets and are just wanting to get their money back (friends flake on them, they couldn't flip them like they thought).
DO NOT panic and end up buying an overpriced ticket from StubHub, Craigslist or wherever. Tickets will be available, you just have to keep your cool.
The box office at Rogers Arena is located at the bottom of the venue on Expo/Pat Quinn Way at the Toyota Ticket Center. You can pick up your tickets between these times:
Mon, August 20th: 7AM - 9PM
Tue, August 21th: 8AM - 9PM
Wed, August 22nd: 8AM - 9PM
Thu, August 23rd: 8AM - 9PM
Fri, August 24th: 8AM - 9PM
Not sure about the box office times for the Finals. Will update that when I know.

FIRST TIME ATTENDING TI

So first off, understand that EVERYONE there is going for the same reason you are, DOTA. Don't be afraid to go up to people, say hello and start conversations. If they shrug you off, fuck them, they don't deserve your brilliance. Enjoy yourself. Worst case, just create a thread on DOTA saying that you want to go shotgun a few beers. My first TI was pretty much by myself, but the combination of a beer + a garden really did wonders.
Simply put, don't worry as much as your mind is telling you to worry. All the talent (casters/players) are incredibly friendly and are pretty much the same as us, just super stoked to be there. But do give them space if they're working or running around to the next thing.
During TI, after every First Blood in a match, there are potential drops given to in arena attendee's who have registered their badge with their Steam ID. There will be a Steam Link kiosk/section OUTSIDE of Rogers Arena, so look out for it. You must have tapped into the Arena in order to be eligible for those drops.
The link to register your badge to be eligible for these drops will be on the back of your badge when you receive it.
Try to pack as lightly and efficiently as possible. My two main staples during the last two TI's were a water bottle (usually given out in a goody bag for midweek + finals ticket holders) and a portable battery pack for my phone. Also know that you might buy things from the Secret Shop, do some shopping downtown and the last thing you want to do is carry that stuff around with you all day. Though consider bringing a sweater for inside the Arena, as Rogers is a fairly cold one.
HOT TIP
Try checking with bell boys/concierge at any hotels if they can possibly check in some of your bags for you. I tried this at TI7 and was surprised how chill they were. I left them a $5 tip for taking my bags and was free for the rest of the day.
Avoid the Secret Shop on the first day or else you'll just spend the entire day waiting in line. Midweek the shop lines will be much more reasonable.

MISC

Well formatted thread to get you started.
Also a well-detailed Google Map of venues/places that should interest people attending TI for places all across Vancouver
Depending on your situation, here are numbers for emergencies in British Columbia.
Ambulance, fire, police: 911
Poison Control: Lower Mainland: 604-682-5050 Toll-free: 1-800-567-8911
Healthlink BC: 811 Deaf or Hearing Impaired: 711
Crisis Intervention & Suicide Prevention: Call 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) if you are considering suicide or are concerned about someone who may be.
Mental health support: Call 310-6789 (no need to dial area code) for emotional support, information and resources specific to mental health.
That is Roger Neilson, former Vancouver Canucks head coach and the inventor of towel power. Please treat it nicely!
Right here.
How sweet of you to ask! That would be Lush by Snail Mail.
Please, if you feel like you need to ask any questions, or there should be things added to this FAQ, post here or DM me. There are obviously some things that no one knows right now in regards to potential additions or subtractions from moving the event from Key Arena to Rogers. But I'll try my best to keep this thing updated if people bookmark it for future use.
Enjoy planning your trip to TI!

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 305 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • Day 172.2. George Webb Live From Hearst Castle - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part 2
    • Welcome to Hearst Castle everyone
    • I found out from Crowd Source the Truth that I am the heir of the hearst riches from my dad's invention
    • So I just want to thank the Internet for the billions of dollars that I've been receiving now, from Motorola
    • It's quite amazing the money is pouring in so much
    • It's well we've gone to Bitcoin because it's stacked up
    • We couldn't get through the front door here
    • Do not believe that this is a regular album try not to show my brother's house
    • But do not believe that this front it this the Hearst Castle is actually behind here
    • And--I love Quinn Michaels because he's so intelligent
    • And I just want to amplify a couple things he said about my dad's patent
    • Yes it was a patent which could be amplified
    • So it starts out as a cordless phone where you could make the phone call out here close by
    • But he always thought about factories he was a big factory guy, and he wanted to do factories
    • And of course he was in the military, so he's always thinking about military applications
    • And if you put an antenna high enough up in the air if you have the rights to this
    • And my my brother actually the one in California who's who I wish would leave Quinn alone, and leave Jason alone leave everybody alone, but we'll see if he does or not
    • But anyway if you put up a high enough antenna, you can have this thing called a repeater, and that allows you to get farther and farther distances
    • So you could literally extend a phone that just has the same principles of communicating out here in the front yard to a worldwide phone call which is what my dad's thing was
    • And I remember I slipped a Motorola phone in my dad's shirt pocket at the nursing home right before he died
    • And he was able to I made a phone call to that phone
    • And he heard it ringing and he he cried
    • So I remember that was a very touching moment in...with my father right before he died
    • But the idea was if you put it up high enough hey if you put it up high enough on a building you can do this kind of long-term transmission
    • And the guy named Martin Cooper, who was also a Navy Intel guy a radio guy, did that
    • He put it up on these Willis Tower, which was a Sears Tower then
    • And he up that the John Hancock building as to cover like goal posts over Chicago
    • Chicago was the first place it was tried
    • My father--it wasn't the SEIU at that time, it was the Teamsters at that time came to our house
    • And much like this I was sitting in the back where the milkman we had actually milk man's came
    • And there was two SEIU Tony's only they were Teamster tony's
    • My father had gotten about $1000 from the Teamsters to use to build their first phone with these parts
    • So that's that story
    • But it was sold to Jack Bear, Golden Bear Communications or Golden Bear Investments I can't remember which is out of Akron, Ohio
    • Jack Nicklaus I believe was kind of like the--guy
    • But then the Union was basically laundering money through this thing with Jack Nicholas
    • And sold it to a hedge fund or back then it was called an investment fund through Allen Dorfman, who was running who was consolidating all the Teamsters
    • He was consolidating the ten different Teamsters investments ten different whatever you want to call fronts for all the different things
    • And Cleveland was kind of a hotbed for pagers, phones, etc was real big thing--remote-controlled bombs, and all this kind of stuff, which my dad had nothing to do with
    • But there was other people working on that stuff
    • So anyway that's the bottom line that's all the facts about the cell phone
    • And Martin Cooper did that I believe that investment that technology did go into Motorola about ten years later in 1973 Martin Cooper walked down the street down Michigan Avenue
    • And made a phone call cited a phone call
    • And the technology really didn't commercialize for another 20 years
    • But that's the story
    • Did he want to do a time phone?
    • No I don't know what that is
    • They also kind of like Jason was talking to some kind of way of attacking me or Quinn was talking about some kind of a technology that could attack me
    • I've never used BOTS--I don't know what bots are I mean I know what they are
    • But I've never used BOTS the one day they talked they did a show about Jason's trend line and my trend line
    • And said I had 89 viewers on January 18th last year well I'd been doing that was about a hundred days into where is Eric Braverman
    • I had I had about 10,000 subscribers
    • So I thought I had more than that actually
    • But anyway we'll see
    • I actually thought I had about 30,000 at that time, but you can check these records
    • So that's the answer to that
    • The day it went up to 56,000 I remember exactly what day I was remember exactly where I was it was
    • I was in Yonkers we were doing the karst of the Alpha Jalloh story
    • I was with a viewer
    • And that was the day he was indicted
    • That was the day Imran Awan was indicted
    • And that's when we had that spike to 56,000, and it came back down
    • And I've always thought that there was a governor or some kind of metering technology to keep me below 50,000, because 50,000 is kind of like you know: "Now, you're a personality or whatever the hell"
    • And I've been just kind of flatlined since then
    • Now, I've never ever used a bot or even know how to organize a bot if there was a way to do it please send me
    • And tell me how to go through all my comments, because I spent a lot of time just looking through comments of the videos I do
    • So I realize this is a little bit long
    • But I just wanted to kind of expand on
    • And by the way this is not my brother Dave's house it's my brother Greg's house I have a brother Bob I also have a sister Sonny
    • And a sister Diane in addition to Dave who's my next one his brother
    • So I'm the youngest of six
    • {{ 911bodysnatchers: CONFIRMED. I've seen the male siblings via BG }}
    • So it isn't the Swigert brothers my name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • I shortened it to Webb because I'm not on the Internet
    • And it's just easier to say plus it's on the web George on the web
    • {{ 911: Plus it's in a couple of legal dockets on PACER }}
    • So anyway if people have a hard time with that can't figure out who it is I apologize
    • My name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • So there you have it there's your download
    • I wanted to do this in front of the Willis Tower because I wanted to do it right behind me
    • But it just so happens my brother hasn't taken me to the train station yet with Task Force
    • {{ 911: Quinn M's element 93 stuff is not science, it's hollow earth, its nazis in space. You're a nice Lad, but try harder, Quinn }}
  • Day 172.3. DIA Agent Webb Fools Trained Detective. - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here we are at hearst castle as you can see there--you're gonna see a lot of metadata with a lot of things that say Mount Prospect, like that sign over there very easily to put those in here at Hearst Castle
    • This water tower everyone everyone believes that's really where Mount Prospect is
    • We put that in here in San Simeon a while back
    • And I'm gonna just step over here and show again, how that Mount Prospect sign keeps paying dividends
    • These dumb dumb dodo heads they come to San Simeon here really get fooled by that
    • Now, now let's say this was about prospect
    • (Oh Rahm? Rahm? could could people Twitter tweet ahead if we are in Mount Prospect from there coming to get your brother stay away from the train station stay away from the basmati rice stay away from the basmati rice barges stay away from Dough Nation
    • There's no Nation like a Dough nation)
    • But Dough Nation's working with us now too
    • And stay away from that Clinton train stop I'm trying to give you warning signs Rahm
    • So anyway back to Mount Prospect let's just say we're in Mount Prospect have you
    • TF: let's pretend
    • Have you stayed in a home here in my prospect? That for that's related a person that's related to me in some way
    • TF: yes I have
    • G: is he older than me, he looks a lot older though right? And his name is Greg
    • Now, did you meet another brother
    • TF: Yeah I met this nice guy name Bob
    • G: So they were a lot nicer than me of course
    • TF: Well they are all very very nice
    • G: Now, that those are fakes those people were brought in Oh see this is a trained detective
    • I completely fooled her she had no idea
    • Now, did you have any idea Patty Hearst was in our basement?
    • TF: no I kind of heard a rumor about that this morning
    • And I've kind of had the run of the house a few times by myself
    • And checked the whole place out and actually no Patty Hearst and no basement
    • {{ 911: George you may want to remove this video you're showing too much of Task Force's face }}
    • G: And you didn't see the ak-47s and the Sengelese Liberation Army in the hood, that we get you didn't see any of that?
    • TF: No you guys must be hiding it boys I usually I'm a detective
    • G: And she had the dope dog she had the dope
    • TF: No I know how to find shit and I didn't find anything
    • G: she's taken there's Rahm I think we got another one Rahm I'm just I'm just saying I'm just saying be on the lookout
    • So anyway so you were fooled even though you found cash even though you found drugs...you were able to not see Patty Hearst
    • TF: could not find patty hearst, couldn't see any crimes, couldn't see anyone related to you that nothing but nice, gentlemen and a very nice family
    • G: And did you see me work with a bot machine this morning the secret bot machine?
    • We have in the in the basement when I play the organ with Dick Cheney I play the Dick Cheney organ music at night
    • TF: yeah you know I was wondering
    • G: it's kind of creepy
    • TF: it's kind of creepy
    • But I I had checked for a basement prior when you guys were out of the house
    • And since I didn't find one I kind of thought it at me that was in my dreams
    • G: That was in her dreams clearly
    • So so So the bottom line is here really a reality check where do you really think we are Illinois, since I've been driving around here by myself for a little bit so for over a week
    • G: So or about a week
    • So anyway we'll leave it there remember to go to Robyn Gritz all you have to just say Robyn Gritz gofundme
    • Now, that's with a Z on the end nothing fits when the witness sits excuse me
    • "Everything fits when the witness sits with the Gritz"
    • And I don't care I know people have different opinions
    • But she if she goes on a couple more long form interviews
    • And talks about Iran we're gonna figure this UAE to---its a very short shot over the Strait of Hormuz from UAE to Iran
    • We're gonna figure this whole centrifuge thing out
    • Was Hillary building resources for the future by taking Uranium yellowcake and spitting it in Iran?
    • Just like the CIA has a space program in again, maybe clots worthy standing next to the EB-3 rocket is just how we do things
    • Now, I think Trump should know that our CIA guy standing next to the EB-3 rocket in North Korea could it be that we also had a secret spinning program Uranium spinning program in Iran as well
    • And the reason why I say that is Resources for the Future, 2009
    • Soon as Hillary comes in a Secretary of State in comes Gattis
    • Gattis knocks her out a dozen teams remember this a dozen teams
    • She's the Supervisory Special Agent--Robyn is the SSA for one team
    • She gets knocked out
    • Day one he asked for the files to try to get rid of her
    • TF: And the only female. She was the SSA, but he asked for files on the only agent on the whole...
    • G: But I think that's a throw because she was the only female agent in Tehran with a team, because her team gets--it could be the woman thing--
    • But I think her team is the one that's in Iran
    • TF: I'm not saying it's a woman thing
    • G: I don't think there's other guys that said
    • So they won't remember it they remember it really they remember it very clearly they remembered
    • So it's very well documented
    • And a lot of people can testify this
    • But the key here is her team is detained
    • They won't let him go out
    • And that's what Hillary becomes Secretary of State
    • Were they secretly spinning the Uranium in Iran
  • Day 172.4. Gritz Files May Unlock Uranium One and Iran Nuclear Deal - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here in beautiful san simeon hearst castle from pay no attention to that Mount prospect sign
    • I did want to ask a Task Force the first time we met Robbie grits you got you guys were together about three and a half hours or
    • So right yesterday I would say you guys were together how long seven seven hours?
    • So you're getting to know her better yes
    • And you would say that she would I mean I heard the bullet
    • I heard you say the phrase I'd take a bullet for you
    • He would take a bullet for me
    • Is this something that like in the law enforcement community whether you're Federal or state is that kind of like a handshake of some sort?
    • TF: right that's a that's kind of a bonding or a knowingness that your partner or the people that your brothers in blue or girls or boys doesn't matter that you would stand in front of them and take the bullet for them because out of your love and respect for their services
    • G: Would you say that lightly to someone would you say that lightly when just met somebody or would you say that after you got to know them?
    • TF: I mean is that something that said lightly or something that's just your duty or no no it's something that happens it's just in the course of bonding with in law enforcement, but it doesn't take long for people that are in law enforcement there's kind of like cop speak like there is with every kind of perfect
    • G: is that something that you said lightly is what I'm saying to her and did you think when she said that to you do you think that was just for fun talk
    • TF: no no no that means what taking a bullet means is I have your back at all cost
    • And taking ovale is a way to say really that at all costs there is no limit to my willingness or yeah my willingness to protects you should you need protection
    • G: if her car broke down like it did yesterday yeah and when she was late at night let's say trying to get home would you help her in a situation
    • TF: right I was gonna turn around and go right back I would not allow her to be that's kind of a form of taking a bullet in some way
    • G: So it's more than just bravado it's more of a bond saying yeah I'll help you like I would help you a partner in a cop
    • TF: right taking the bullet is the--the epitome it's the last step that's basically saying I--like you everything right you say for your a lot of people would say this for their family I'll say it's about that it was about their children they would want them to go first or something in law enforcement you have that connection with people regardless agency that you feel so strongly about who they are their integrity and what they're doing--whatever service that you're gonna go to the mat with him all the way
    • G: OK So let me ask you a question on this there was a part of the moment the moment last night where this Oompa band at the Hofbrau Haus
    • And of course you saw the people streaming in for the Robyn Gritz fundraiser
    • All you have to do is say Robin with a Y grits GRI TZ
    • And then GoFundMe just Google that you'll go right there
    • I think we're at about thirty thousand seventy seven hundred dollars
    • So let's get over thirty-two today if we could
    • But there was a what you remember the part that I'm talking about where the Oompa band started playing the star-spangled banner
    • TF: yeah it was actually one of the most moving moments that I think I've experienced in quite some time because race was packed place is packed
    • Robyn and I were sitting there and George as well who all have been I'd say injured in some way are attacked in some way for standing up for our country
    • And for the ethics and morality of our country
    • And then the second the star-spangled banner came on, all of us immediately stood to our feet put our hands on our chest and began to sing the national anthem
    • And when you you do that even in spite of the fact of what has happens to us
    • You just can feel that--how much we love our country--it was very moving
    • And all the people as well everybody stood up
    • Everyone I wouldn't want to get in there with those waitresses with those paddles right
    • G: If you had not stood up I think there was definitely a price to pay if you didn't stand
    • Anyway the so that that's the kind of the serious part of this
    • But I saw with crowd source of truth they said I had 79 or 80 subscribers in January 13th or 14th the last year
    • And I just checked it one at random Eva Bartlett exposes the white helmets it was December the 20th and thirteen thousand people watched that video
    • So I just if I had 79 viewers
    • And then 30 or 13,000 thousand people watched Ava Bartlet exposes white helmets good for me
    • And one of the transitions I want to make here from female all law enforcement being just every bit as capable or if not more, both at the state, and Federal level is female journalists
    • So I got me thinking about Shifa Guardi who died last year in early february for reporting on Syria
    • I can't remember the English journalist right off the bat what begins with a WH of course Sherina Shim
    • And her mother I made a promise to her mother that we were going to find out who killed Turkish Intelligence who in Turkish Intelligences organization killed her
    • And then it reminded me of this Sabira.
    • People don't know it think of I having an i saber
    • So that's how you spell it I saber
    • Now, this was a journalist now
    • Again, think of timing Hillary Clinton becomes the Secretary of State in January 2009 right
    • She this is a gal who grew up she's about 40 now
    • But she grew up as a journalist North Dakota she was Miss North Dakota she goes to Iran in 2003 to get her second master's degree in Iranian studies
    • She's studying there
    • They revoke one press pass from her in 2006
    • They revoked the second one from the BBC in 2009
    • And she's held there now,
    • She starts in April she starts she's going to be charged with eight years for espionage, for holding classified information is that
    • Does that have anything to do with Jeffrey Sterling and the classified information regarding these centrifuges coming and going
    • Again, these does metadata this they're Robyn Gritz's team is in Tehran and detained from going and investigating this
    • She starts a 101 day hunger strike they decide this is a liability this is going to cause a state incident
    • And Robyn Gritz is the one who gets her out gets her back to her father
    • And if I could just replay Robyn Gritz's explanation of what how her father interacted with her when they got back to New York
    • I think was in New York maybe else DC it was it was a really touching moment
    • I said that's that's the story those are the real stories
    • And moments of your life
    • And that's what needs to kind of be brought forward in this--people who approached her about a book deal
    • I will never be a part of any I will only help crowdsource the outline crowdsource the storyboard crowdsource sourcing as far as sources and citations
    • Don't want a penny from robbing grits I hope she knows that
    • So that is yet more data that says a longer form interview with Robyn Gritz
    • We were going to do a hands interview people might even remember the hands interviewer the kind of the notebook we did with Macduff
    • Kind of his Macduff's life we did the same thing with Task Force
    • We'd like to do just a hands interview of Robyn Gritz just her going through her press clippings
    • And talking about all these different cases got a storyboard the outline or crowd source the outline crowd source the storyboard
    • And that's that's really where we want to go with this I can't bring back sheet Syrina Shim I can't bring back Shifa Guardi I can't I can promote people like david gareja Bartlett as I did December 2016 13,000 views
    • And that's all we can do
    • And we can support people like Robyn Gritz who want to take the Gritz files
    • The Gritz files aren't about Robyn Gritz they're about these journalists that she saved they're about all these things that are metadata to this potential thing of Uranium One
    • And the Iran nuclear deal that were the big bookends of American history--the Uranium One deals starting in 2009 around that time with CFIUS
    • And then the Iran-Contra deal ending the deal in around 2000 summer 2015
  • Day 172.5. Iran Gritz Timeline With Saberi and Sterling - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part five
    • And that is Sears Tower that's where they put the antenna just to follow off Quinn Michael's good[sic] [stupid] research
    • That's where they put the antenna that's where Martin Cooper put the antenna
    • And then he walked along this street right here even this is the John Hancock building which is on the Mort on the north side of the city
    • But this is where he walked
    • And he made the phone call for all the reporters
    • And that's really how Martin Cooper who is kind of more adept in even though it was seven years later you could ask my brother's about being on the mobile phone that was nine years later he was more media savvy I also had the backing of Motorola
    • Anyway the patents came out here from Cleveland
    • So we're gonna leave that there
    • And we'll talk more about an ongoing investigation which is the Iran investigation
    • And we have--Task Force is going to be our liaison to Robyn Gritz
    • And her involvement in the Iran investigations
    • So let me set this up with a couple of names you might not be familiar with
    • So the first name is Jeffrey Sterling
    • And he's this black guy almost died in prison
    • And he just got out last year from the CIA for Iranian espionage that's what he was charged with I think he served about three years and three months and three days 333
    • But anyway he was recruiting students in New York City Iranian students or students that would go to Iran and do Iranian studies
    • Now, there was one student from North Carolina
    • And her name was Saberi I talked about in the last film she's this kid from North Dakota wins Miss North Dakota I don't know if she was recruited in New York to go to Iran or if she was recruited in in Washington DC
    • But she goes to Iran in 2003
    • She loses her first Press cadential in 2006?
    • Was she doing espionage work? Who knows?
    • Honeypot? I don't know anything about it
    • But I'm just trying to put the metadata out there for people to look into
    • Now, she loses her second Press credential in 2009
    • And some people think well that's when Hillary took over
    • And that when Hillary wanted to start doing the resources for the future with the yellowcake Uranium
    • And spinning it in Iran
    • So there's a lot of metadata that points in that direction
    • What's really important now, is two key dates one is the Saberi imprisonment in March of 2009
    • And her subsequent hunger strike
    • The other key date is when does Robyn Gritz get her out, which I believe is May ish timeframe
    • And then the other key date is when does the Iranian Government or when does FBI with Gattis, come down on her, grab her file, throw her team that's in on this whole investigation with Robert Levinson, who is another CIA agent, who was abducted there
    • {{ 911: Sounds like two state actors pretending to be oppositional as a means to suppress what Saberi found, something which probably had something to do with human trafficking or drug or organ ratlines. Robyn would then be a threat to expose whatever Saberi found }}
    • When do they throw her out or what did they throw her off the case
    • So you're in contact with Robin yes correct
    • And we don't really know yet, but we're waiting for response?
    • TF: yeah I just I just know that Gaddis came in with Robin in 1997 which is I believe they were in the Academy together because they were in the Academy together
    • G: But she's surprised to learn Andy McCabe bought a house in Chappaqua?
    • TF: yeah in 1998 time in Chappaqua 1988 same year that Hillary Clinton was establishing residency to fight for the Senate position against JFK jr. before his plane allegedly crashed
    • G: "went down by accident"
    • TF: yeah
    • G: So so the other key thing we learned was Andy's first field office was the New York office
    • Now, I still say Andy came from the st. Louis office
    • And he had three years with another agency before he was inserted into New York do we know exactly when he started with in the New York office the field office at this point?
    • TF: I don't know
    • G: But we'll find that out
    • But since he bought a home in New York in 1998 in Chappaqua in Chappaqua in Chappaqua down the street from Hillary I think it's pretty safe to say he was kind of brought in to work the Hillary for Senate all right kind of a run-up
    • And a lot of times we know now, Peter Strzoks and Melissa Hodgman is Peter Strzoks kind of a fake front for bringing in the SEC undermining different executives getting compromising different executives than coming in, and saying hey we're gonna take your company or you can give us a nice donation
    • Was that what was really happening?
    • I know I said that day one in this series
    • But now, we're really drilling down into could that have happened--is that really where he was working, is was that really the kind of color-of-law operation that we're running or wasn't it?
    • And and Robyn's working with you on this?
    • TF: yeah and also just stunned and shocked to find out even--that I have the property records of Andy McCabe's selling or buying or cashing out that same house in 2013 which 1913
    • G: by Peter Burgess by Peter Burgess
    • And I don't know if he's related to our General Burgess or if he's rated related to Karen Burgess the guy who shoots himself at the White House, but we're gonna find out
    • So or even Mr. Clockwork Orange Anthony Burgess
    • But we'll we're going to find out
    • And all this stuff is so important for other agents to come forward, other people who are working in national security, other--which is all declassified now--other people that were working CIA etc
    • We know that Jeffrey sterling somehow had a was upset and was talking to James Risen about classified stuff for nuclear materials
    • And he had a conversation in 2002 through 2004 James Risen--Pulitzer Prize winner did the whole AT&T exposee "collected it all" of the NSA--we know that it was he was some kind of secrets who were going to James Risen in the book
    • If you look at James Rises book that he wrote about it it was about centrifuges
    • So again, this is not speculation this is New York Times Pulitzer prize-winning reporter reporting that it was centrifuges
    • Reporting that they were going to go after the Ahmadinejad's centrifuges
    • So how did Amadinejad get all that latest and greatest technology?
    • Who approved it?
    • Well let's look at to the other people who are Secretary of State
    • Who approved Stinger missiles?
    • Who approved sarin gas to be moved from Libya to Syria?
    • Who approved all these other movements of Uranium around the world?
    • That's the place you start
    • If somebody Rob's six banks down this street
    • And their head in that direction you
    • And somebody Rob's a seventh bank, you look to who robbed the first six!
    • That's just straight-up modus operandi
    • Anything you want to add?
    • TF: No except that Hillary Clinton was Sec of State during all these transactions
    • G: And all this stuff happens almost like a month or two after she starts
    • And Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff?
    • TF: And Rahm Emanuel was chief of staff to in the WH w/ Pres Obama at that exact time. At the same time
    • G: But going back to when was early started Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff in the Clintons Bill Clinton's White House
    • And also Sidney Blumenthal figures very largely in the Clinton Bill Clinton White House as well as the Obama White House through the Obama did not want city Blumenthal in the in the White House
    • But there were a lot of people exfiltrating data to him like Susan Rice
    • And other intermediaries for other behalf of John Brennan
    • We're gonna leave it right there it's bloody cold
    • And there it is
    • That's where the first antenna went for Martin Cooper 1973 to walk down this street and give a demonstration of the same technology of my dad's phone
    • Take the handle put four double A batteries on one side of it
    • Four in the other in the handle, make that antenna a little bit longer, big antenne on on on top of this building
  • Day 172.6. A Q Khan and Al-Attar Are Key To Iran Centrifuges - YouTube
    • It's day 112 what is it no take 172 60 days right there maybe that's what I should start doing back dating everything
    • So so I'll be in sync with the news instead of 60 days ahead
    • But anyway this is Luke capital right here 111 Jackson
    • Now, that has nothing to do with the 111 the pack is a 111 that's no reference at all it just happens to be 111 West Jackson
    • But as I was talking with Task Force about this
    • And Task Force you can come around this side I'll keep the camera up we both were like it's the centrifuges
    • And she said it about the same time I said it I say it's AQ Kwan with the containers, sending them for centrifuges
    • And who did you say it's Attar's the guy look at the Gulftainer deals the same people
    • Look at the Gulftainer deal putting containers they even put the word 'tainer' in the word they're not trying to hide this
    • So and what really ramps up with the Gulfainer deal is when Iran's centrifuges ramp
    • So in 2007 Ahmadinejad says he's got three thousand only three thousand centrifuges doesn't say where they got them from they appear out of nowhere tothey come from Germany? Who knows
    • I think they call him IR 1 i:r to IR 3
    • Then all of a sudden he says oh we got ten thousand in 2013
    • And then they all of a sudden turn on five thousand brand-new state-of-the-art centrifuges
    • Where did you get those?
    • Who approved those for sale
    • Now, Hillary at that time ran the DDT-- or DD e I can't remember whatever weapons of mass destruction type of thing
    • Now, Robyn Gritz worked in anti-terrorism and weapons of mass destruction
    • So she's very close to this situation on the inside
    • Now, it turns out Deep Uranium and his echelon group is on the outside of this
    • And can provide information and names as well
    • That's all I'll say at this point
    • But is this it's to me it's almost obvious, because they get the 5,000 new centrifuges and
    • Now, look in December of 2016, they turn on gas injection
    • Gas injection allows them with the ir8 the ir8 not our IR s ir 8
    • With IR8s they can do Uranium enrichment 20 times faster with the injectors: like what the hell is going on?
    • Who signed this deal?--(We know who signed the deal.. we know I mean Task Force is just saying look I mean it's al Attar I mean--come on I mean the Awans' Al Attar)
    • And AQ Kwon we know has sold centrifuges everyone wearing shoes a lot of people not wearing shoes he sold them through containers through containerizing these weapons
    • Again, I'm not Jack Lew I didn't do the 35 year no contract no no no cut contract no bid contract
    • ...Who was a nuclear scientist
    • Now, the Argentinian nuclear scientist that gets run down in Chelsea also starts making me wonder
    • Now, the gal who leaves in our border protection leaves SES
    • And goes works in border protection in Brussels makes me think
    • All the Obama stuff that I witnessed personally with the fast planes and the fast helicopters and all that starts making me think about Brussels
    • Imran Awan sending stuff from the Port of Baltimore to the port of Brussels with basmati rice makes me to ask questions right
    • I think I think what's happening--is Robyn Gritz has a huge network of folks that are out of the business now
    • But can offer
    • And proper information on the inside we are on the outside as I said before the other night
    • But law enforcement professionals at the state level like that--that Task Force is aware of our on the inside as well as Robyn Gritz's type professionals in the onset
    • What do you want to add to them?
    • TF: not a lot except that I mean just I think it's funny interesting that the same Iraqi nuclear scientist is now in the process of being prepared to buy the Delaware Oh Wilmington port of Wilmington Wellington
    • So it's like at what point do we go enough enough they're buying all of our ports?
    • G: it's not it's not just for shipping basmati rice
    • It's it's it's for these weapons trade in one direction drugs in the other
    • And yeah how many sign---didn't James Woods tweet out about that?
    • TF: I think James several people have now, tweeted out about that why in the world did that happen in the first place in Florida
    • And now, he's gonna buy the port of Wilmington how do we let that happen when we're still actually fighting overseas?
    • G: And then why wouldn't Trump be looking at the IRAs being able to do twenty times faster regenerating in Richmond this reminds me so much of Clotsworthy, Rich Clotsworthy standing next to the EV3 rocket in North Korea

Living through the long decline

If you've paid attention and understand how to read between the lines, you might have noticed that our society has reached its peak. Generally speaking, things aren't going to get much better than they are today. In fact, most of the luxury we've grown accustomed to will disappear. You might get faster internet speeds, your telephone might learn some new tricks, but that's about all you can realistically expect to get.
We should count our blessings in fact, if we survive through the coming decades without people dying of hunger in first world nations. In many third world nations, that prospect is already unavoidable. The UN has declared the worst humanitarian catastrophe since world war II, because numerous nations throughout Africa face unprecedented famines, brought on by political instability, eroding soils, expanding populations and a rapidly changing climate.
You might have noticed that all these gleeful predictions that the whole world would soon cease to reproduce out of its own volition because girls are sent to school have so far ceased to apply to Africa. With every new revision of its population prospects, the United Nations target for 2100 creeps up. This is all due to Africans, who simply can't be made to agree that reproduction is a 20th century relic and the future lies in taking care of cats and dogs as you spend until your mid thirties finishing your Phd.
When it comes to Europe, there are two possible courses. Europe could embark on an isolationist course, trying to fence off its borders and ensure that the people who managed to kickstart the industrial revolution manage to survive through its hangover as well. This would require a switch towards a continent dominated by far right parties that hardly have a clue in regards to the kind of climatic catastrophe we have to prepare for.
The established European parties seem unlikely to drastically change course in regards to their political position on the growing migration waves that Erdogan and other dictators now happily use to slap freebies out of them like a giant piñata. They harbor the vision that every individual is a unique person with his own human rights that have to be enforced, ignoring the fact that we can only enforce the concept of human rights we came up with ourselves because we live in an era of abundance that is now drawing to an end.
During the refugee wave of 2015, mayors in the Netherlands proclaimed that "nobody sleeps on the streets" in the Netherlands, as they hurried to find shelter for all the newcomers. Well, they're about to face much worse. If you think you can sustain a world where nobody will have to sleep on the streets, reality is about to hit you in the face like a brick wall. Even the United States has tent cities filled to the brim with regular middle class professionals who fell on bad luck.
What I would like to know is what these European politicians who nearly annihilated our civilization in 2015 plan to do in the years ahead as the refugee crisis continues to expand. In 2015, we saw a fake dichotomy between "real refugees" and "economic migrants", the prior facing death in political violence, the latter seeking opportunities abroad. The idea was that the prior deserve a ticket to paradise, whereas the latter need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Well, in the years ahead, you'll notice these lines begin to blur further.
The economic migrants we speak of, are the same type of people living in overpopulated nations where people are dying of hunger. Before the industrial revolution, Niger sustained around 3 million people. Today it hosts 18 million, by 2100 it's expected to house 210 million people. If we discover economic migrants fleeing our way, it will be because the local economy will consist of the exchange of mud cookies and bullets. Europe will eventually figure out that it will have to choose between becoming a giant battered women shelter for sub-Saharan Africa, or accepting that its traditional vision of human rights will have to be abandoned.
If you wonder how I can be so sure of a catastrophe that lies ahead, consider that we house 7.5 billion people today on our planet and expect to have nearly 10 billion by 2050. Meanwhile, the capacity for feeding them is shrinking. In the past 40 years, we've lost a third of our arable land to soil erosion. Historically, this has brought multiple civilizations to their end. In the years ahead, the problem will get worse. In the Middle East, 550 million people are said to live inside “the margin of what is physically possible”. Guess where they'll be headed when the mercury smashes through said margin, which could happen in a few decades.
Similarly, a billion people worldwide depend to some degree on the coral reefs for nutrition. I don't know if you've noticed how the coral reefs are doing lately, but they won't be here anymore in a few decades. The temperature rise over the past 250 years has been mostly helpful to our civilization and increased yields, but except perhaps for some very Northern latitudes, we're now moving beyond the optimal range for agriculture, at a speed that vastly exceeds the changes we've so far experienced.
It would be catastrophic enough on its own if this were the only problem we faced, as these problems have historically brought down most civilizations. We face a different situation however, as we're also dependent for our way of life on non-renewable resources. Without oil, coal and natural gas, this party comes to an end. The fact that you can theoretically produce these resources on your own through photosynthesis doesn't get you very far when you're already struggling to feed everyone.
What's necessary is that you look at these problems with some degree of realism. This will be beneficial to you yourself. You might tell yourself: "I'm better off not knowing about all of these doom scenarios." Well, that's where you would be wrong. To start with, if you have options, you'd try to move away from a city like Los Angeles and relocate instead to a city like Invercargill, New Zealand. Most of us don't have such options of course, we're stuck right where we live today. If you live in the type of place where the death of a criminal at the hands of the police is enough to start a riot, any place would be preferable to that in the years ahead, when the government will place its priorities on encouraging the survival of those who can contribute to society over those who make a living by massaging your guilt feelings.
But what if you're poor? Even then, there are advantages to knowing that business as usual will not continue. Let's say you have a seventeen year old son who's planning to go to college to study something that's supposed to start paying off by the time he's in his late forties. Well, you might wish to make it clear to him that the world thirty years from now will hardly look like the world that economists and politicians plan for. If you're sacrificing earnings now, in exchange for earnings thirty years from now that will be taxed highly because the government will need the money to keep people from starving, how does this benefit you? You might wish to recommend learning a trade to your son instead.
Similarly, if you're in your twenties today and face the prospect of retiring at the age of 72, as I do, what point is there realistically speaking to saving for retirement? Do you think I'm seriously going to save a dime so that I get to spend it by the time I'm 72? Do you think I seriously trust the money will still be there? I have a pleasant job, but I'm not putting anything away for my eventual retirement. I trust that today's generations will empty the retirement funds before I'll ever get to stake a claim to them. In addition, realistically speaking I may simply never live to be 72. Ask yourself how many years you have left until retirement and ask yourself how the world will look by then. There is hardly a difference between the poor and the middle class today, how do you expect it to look in the future?
I'm well aware that generations that preceded me have had the same thoughts. Survivalists in the 90's must have thought the world would be in flames by now. Boomers who didn't bother saving for retirement because they figured Jesus would have returned by now are starting to sweat as they realize they didn't prepare for old age. The thing is however, that the failure of a prediction doesn't prohibit its predicted outcome from being correct. I can look at a 400 pound man and predict he'll have a heart attack in the next ten years. If it turns out ten years later I was wrong, that doesn't mean his risk of suffering a heart attack has dropped to zero.
What you're going to notice sooner or later is that we have not just failed to live up to the scientific accomplishments hoped for by our ancestors, we're going to fail to sustain the accomplishments they made. Consider for example, our discovery of antibiotics. You'll notice soon enough that these antibiotics will cease to work. We're similarly reaching the point where many of the pesticides we depend on will cease to work. We have a very limited range of fungicides and we're starting to face the question of whether we want to sacrifice yields or lives.
There will be real catastrophic collapses, of the type you see predicted by angry guys with blogs. I'm sure we will see places rendered uninhabitable by nuclear disasters, dams failing that kill tens of thousands of people in first world countries and render hundreds of thousands more homeless, I'm sure we'll see lasting power outages, or even dramatic civil wars between migrants and indigenous people. What happened in Japan was supposed to be impossible too, according to nuclear engineers. "If you were sitting on top of the plants' chimney when they were venting, you should probably give up smoking to return to your former life expectancy." Remember this old line by any chance? Those are the words of Josef Oehmen, an MIT scientist and they were parroted everywhere, until they were hurriedly scrubbed from the Internet. As is surprisingly often the case, the ALL CAPS rantings by basement-dwellers with tin-foil hats were closer to the truth than the soothing words of what we imagine to be credible experts.
I could dig up similar soothing commentary here on Reddit if I wanted, but I trust that you yourself remember the time when the narrative had not yet switched to of course you shouldn't build these wonderful inventions of ours near fault lines. I expect that genetic engineering will have its own Fukushima moment eventually when it triggers the kind of irreversible damage to our ecosystem that was supposed to be impossible, which will be followed by similar science-loving intellectuals on Reddit who will insist that those responsible were simply doing it wrong. The dramatic unanimous insistence by anonymous commentators on the Internet who seem to have no dog in the fight that vaccines and genetic engineering are safe is perhaps the biggest reason there is to worry about their safety.
In all likelihood however, places that suffer a dramatic collapse of the type seen in Syria or Fukushima will be in the minority. What the majority of you will live through is a slow grind, as the type of standard of living we can sustain begins to decline. Look at the Netherlands today and you will see prominent former politicians choose euthanasia with their wives, because their health is declining and they realize how terrible conditions in our modern nursing homes are. You can expect that euthanasia is going to be one of the new normals in our society, not because people suffer deeply, but because they realize we don't have the wealth available to us to guarantee them dignified lives when they become disabled.
Another trend you'll notice is that there will be no real genuine incentive to work for a lot of you. If you're not part of the ruling class and don't have some job as a code-monkey, you will work primarily out of status concerns. In the Netherlands and many other European nations, being a single mother on welfare earns you roughly as much money as working most full-time jobs would. The main reason more people don't apply for welfare is the fact that they discourage people capable of working from receiving welfare benefits, in addition to the public humiliation commonly used to encourage people to find something to do. Unless you're part of the small elite, it won't matter much whether you spend your day in a cubicle or watching tel sell commercials instead.
So how do you cope with this prospect? Well, if the middle class will be the same as the lower class, you could strife even harder to become part of the upper class that will prove to be the main target of the lynch mob. We all dream of having a mansion where we can live by ourselves without any neighbors, but those mansions are like an advertisement board encouraging criminals to break into your house and keep you hostage. If you don't plan on having your whole family carry guns with them continually, don't bother aiming for the stars. Aristocrats are beheaded, the poor starve in famines, but average people inherit the future.
Wiser than hoping to become part of the 0.1% is to accept the prospect that lies ahead of us and trying to make the best of it. Again, if you live in the kind of city where people riot whenever a criminal is put out of his misery, your priority should lie with getting out of there. Find a community of people who look and behave similar to you and settle down there. This is bigger than just ethnicity, social class matters as well. If you work as a bearded hipster with your own microbrewery, go live around other overeducated special snowflakes. You don't want to stand out from the crowd and you don't want your neighbors to pretend not to notice when you're starving or chained to a chair by criminals.
If you're part of an ethnic minority, you'll similarly want to live around others belonging to your community. If you notice the mentality is starting to look very grim, you'll want to work on getting out of the country. Three years before the Kristallnacht, Germany implemented laws defining who's a Jew and who Jews are allowed to marry. Hindsight is 20-20, but when you notice such tendencies emerge it's time to get out, as it's only downhill from that point on.
This ties into another grim reality, which is that if you're a Syrian or a Nigerian it makes perfect rational sense to try to flee to Europe, as the third world will suffer a dramatic population contraction. Europeans however will do what makes perfect sense for them, which is to try to prohibit you from entering their continent. The simple process of group polarization will likely lead even those nationalist parties who today see themselves as moderate and rational to implement policies that would horrify us today. Humans in an era of abundance are much nicer to each other than they are in an era of scarcity.
Perhaps equally useful advice is to plan for a lifestyle that is nomadic. The work I do allows me to live essentially anywhere. If I felt the need, I could theoretically move to Eastern Europe and keep the same income while cutting my cost of living by 50%. More likely, I would try to move to an impoverished rural region of my own country. I always have some Bitcoin I can hold onto as well, in case everything goes to hell in a hand basket.
If you decided to get a mortgage, so that you could build up assets that will make you rich thirty of forty years from now, my opinion would be that your decision was not very wise. Besides the fact that real estate may very well be in a bubble, you have to understand that the government will tax anything it can tax. It can't tax off-shore bank accounts, so it will happily tax your property instead. Look at Detroit, a failed community that has the second highest property taxes in the United States, to understand what will happen. By virtue of the fact that you own property, you become a cow to milk.
One important factor to consider is that a mortgage can have the effect of tying you to a piece of land. That's perhaps the worst problem you can be dealing with if your community faces social meltdown. If I have a mortgage that's higher than the value of the property I own and I need to pay a tax when I wish to buy a different house, how will I ever leave the place I'm stuck in? In Groningen here in the Netherlands, we have thousands of people who are stuck living in houses falling apart due to earthquakes. These people have mortgages and live in houses nobody wants to buy any longer, so they're stuck living in houses they fear could collapse any moment and unable to move elsewhere.
As we continue pumping up gas, the earthquakes they suffer will merely get worse. These people would have been much better off renting a house instead. Situations like these will be very common in my country as the sea level rises. Consider this: Almere is a city roughly 5 meter beneath sea level. The soil is expected to sink by roughly another half meter by 2050, while the sea can be expected to rise by anywhere up to half a meter by then. If you plan on buying a house there, I've got a bridge to sell you with it.
The ultimate form of nomadism is perhaps to buy a boat and to live on your boat. As babyboomers watch their pensions dry up, these boats might very well become quite affordable. A boat allows you to leave, regardless of where you live. Hurricane incoming? You leave. Some "youth" got shot after robbing a gas station? Time to set sail. The local dam is about to spil over? Time to leave. Some guy in a white coat on TV announces that there's "no reason to panic"? You leave immediately. This is the best option available to you that I can imagine.
Of course in the real world, you don't control everything. There's a lot of random chance involved when it comes to your survival odds for the years ahead, although the odds are generally stacked against you if you live in Niger or Uganda and in your favor if you live in Denmark or New Zealand. It's not going to go wrong simultaneously everywhere. It should be clear that it already went wrong in Syria and Yemen. These places will soon be joined by large parts of Africa, which will trigger unprecedented waves of migrants. Places like Japan and New Zealand may very well get through the coming decades unscathed. For the rest of us, that's unlikely to be the case.

Bank Robber Runs By Reporter During Live TV Report - YouTube What is involved in a TV news Suspect Robs Bank For Second Time During Live TV Bank Robbery Report Watch a Bank Robber Interrupt This News Reporter During ... Bank Robbed During Live TV Report

The Norwegian news outlet TV2 reported on Tuesday that a local Bitcoin millionaire escaped being robbed of his crypto funds by fleeing through a second-story balcony.. The unnamed Bitcoin big shot currently controls a crypto firm and his net worth is presumably up to NOK 100 million, estimated at 9 million pounds (or just a little over $11 million). Bloomberg TV anchor, Matt Miller, was robbed by a reddit user of a Bitcoin during his show's "12 days of Bitcoin" segment where he intended to gift Bitcoin certificates worth $20 each to his co-hosts. Bitcoin bank Flexcoin blames technical flaw for digital currency heist Bill Graveland The Canadian Press Published Wednesday, March 5, 2014 3:29PM EST Last Updated Wednesday, March 5, 2014 5:19PM EST Flexcoin, which billed itself as a bank for the virtual, crypto-currency, said someone attacked its systems and stole nearly $600,000 worth of bitcoin. "On March 2nd 2014 Flexcoin was attacked and robbed of all coins in the hot wallet. The attacker made off with 896 BTC," the company posted on its website.
