Title: BTG Easter-Egg FOUND! Code in BITCOIN-GOLD Drect's Miner Blocks to Dev Team

It turns out that the entire 8,000 blocks of pre-mine went to CHINESE owner Jack Liao, the Dev's were left to there own scam for rent/food money.

Where they placed code in the GITHUB that transfer's the found blocks to a secret address, funny how they do this :)


BTG the scam that keeps giving


***

In summary if you MINE BTG then your hardware is working for the BTG-GPU Dev Team in Burgaria.

This explains why so many blocks found didn't show up as paid to the finder, also why suprnova.cc chain was out of sync,  perhaps suprnova.cc found this code removed it, and that pissed off dev-team, Suprnova.cc would have been paying class attention to 'payouts', the code


if ( TestNet == 0 ) SendAddressBlock( dev-team, 1 )


Pretty tricky :)

They obviously slipped this in at the 11th hour and nobody caught it until later

Why are people even still supporting this coin? Everyone has known for weeks now these developers are scammers:

    they wanted a 16k premine
    they were paying other people to develop the entire main/test net for them
    claimed to have a full working implementation of replay protection when they had nothing
    proceeded to ask people to implement replay protection for them and said they'd pay with BTG
    tries to add hidden fees

The fact people are still submitting issues and helping these developers out is mind blowing. There are plenty of other incredible communities who want your support and help, stop wasting your time here.

Realizing this topic has not seen a post in over 120 days, it has been read over 500 times, so I thought contributing would not be 100% pointless. I have no personal opinion on this topic (per-say), but thought I would share a useful link supporting the accusations made in the OP.
