But looks like he left the company in silence, he is not to be found any where in the industry, so either he got a job at burger king or he retired early.

Any ideas on when he left the company? Without saying anything further, I am curious if there is any correlation with the timing of the first transaction on May 13, 2015.


Damn sad story, so many broken dreams...

Yes there are all the way around. I cannot describe the impact this experience has had on my well being. I do not like that ~1300 BTC were taken from a product which I promoted and had lent my credibility to. After meeting Kris in person the first time I had a grand mal seizure and have since been diagnosed with epilepsy. I believe the stress from this whole experience has contributed to my seizure disorder and truly wish everyone could get their funds back. It is also why I have remained silent for so long.

The funds are already being spend, but slowly, so far is 30 BTC been cashed out:
https://blockchain.info/address/1HpwmCt8LE6uA6gMDowMiYAFjqAa5BNrzg

You cannot just sell 1300 BTC on bitstamp, it would cause you problems, he is selling them slowly over time.

Except if you follow the coins to http://blockr.io/address/info/1EWTiEJ9E3vdc3vDh86WQExTRhduDKdmmd you will see that 29 BTC has not moved since that day. I believe the hacker saw the community respond to the moved coins and/or was waiting to see if they could be safely moved. Someone really needs to do a full technical analysis of where these coins have gone and set up alerts if they do move again. I believe the hacker still has access to the funds but is trying to find a way they can get away with it.

BIPS was reorganized into a new company called coinify, Kris was in charge of "technology and security", lol. But looks like he left the company in silence, he is not to be found any where in the industry...

I was not aware of this but will have to look more into the legal details of what happened. If this is the case then Coinify should attempt to do something for the customers of BIPS who lost money.
3  Economy / Web Wallets / An Open Letter to Kris Henriksen of BIPS.me on: January 19, 2016, 09:54:40 PM
Kris,

As someone who used to be associated with BIPS and whose reputation has taken a hit as a result of the website's hack, I ask for transparency on behalf of the public and myself. You have provided the public no concrete details about what was exploited nor how access was gained. ~1300 BTC of user funds were taken and not repaid to this day: A tragedy which is hard to stomach given the once sterling reputation of the business. When I left BIPS in the summer of 2013 there were no known security issues and a sizable profit sitting in the wallet. Having handled customer support, I did not see a single security flaw reported up until my departure.

Until you provide technical proof of the hack beyond the address which Bitcoins were sent to I have very serious concerns about what happened. Anyone could have discovered this address using the block chain and I refuse to believe you have no more details than that. Providing the full technical details of this hack to the public may help in apprehending the suspect and give hope to those who have lost coins. As far as I can tell BIPS is long gone and not coming back - there is nothing to lose by releasing information about the hack.

The stolen coins were on the move last summer until the public took note; so whoever took them still has access and in theory could return them. If the hacker has a heart, they will give the Bitcoins back to someone who can give them back to the users. I want nothing to do with the process but I propose BitPay, BitStamp or some other reputable member of the community provide an address which funds can be sent to. My relationship with BIPS officially ended July 2013 and I want nothing to do with it after how things ended.

To the hacker: You will never be able to spend those coins, so why don't you just return them? Any attempts to spend them will result in your identity being revealed and you being caught.

Kris: You owe it to the public to provide every technical detail to the public including the server logs. The missing ~1300 BTC is almost $1 million Canadian today and silence on the issue is unacceptable. The public needs to know I am not okay with this and you should not be either.

Sincerely,
Adam Harding

True. There must be 10 threads about trying to get them onboard. Glad to see Coinbase finally did it!

WalletBit had a period where we gave access to the humble bundle for Bitcoins. It was very popular so I'm sure they will do well.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WTF - Kiddy Porn in the Blockchain for life? on: May 04, 2013, 04:21:40 AM
the vast majority of child porn is now completely victimless.

Quoted so you can't remove it later.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WTF - Kiddy Porn in the Blockchain for life? on: May 04, 2013, 03:01:46 AM
If we create a law which defines "speeding" as "murder". Does that result in more killings? No, it doesn't. You just altered the perceived reality by changing the meaning of words, but reality stays the same even though the media now can report massive amounts of murderers on the loose.

Do you remember the guy who created liberty dollar, now why is it that he was labeled a terrorist? Is he a terrorist? or is this a form of altering the meaning of words to fit some twisted political belief?

Let me just say this. If you actually want to do something good in this world you may want to ask yourself why there is such a mass hysteria, and why we now have a majority willing to give up all their rights to fight this apparently ever increasing crime. It's important to think this through before you act. Can you think of other mass hysterias throughout history and their consequences?

Witch hunt of this kind has, and will, continue to destroy the life of innocent men, women and children. If you let yourself be fooled by the elite and fall for the lies of the majority, you will unconsciously be part of the mob that stones "terrorists" such as the creator of bitcoin to death (and this is exactly why he will always be in hiding). And while doing it, you will feel pride, you will feel that you did the right thing, that you fought the good fight, just as the people who burned witches fought evil, you will join them in their fight for a "better world".

I may be wrong, you might have thought this through, but I sense lack of knowledge and unjustified anger.


How does the first part of your post have anything at all to do with mine? Child pornography is the exploitation of children which will emotionally scar them forever even if they never tell anyone. Anyone participating in this is just as bad as the ones committing the crimes in the first place. Creating and allowing a market for it to be bought and sold to exist is directly causing more children to be exploited. Anyone in denial of this needs to re-examine the reality of the situation. This is why a zero tolerance policy and an aggressive campaign against them is 100% necessary. Comparing this to the "terrorist" label is disingenuous at best and makes me question what your stance on the matter really is.

Now onto the second part which is somewhat relevant. I would only want those exposed those who can be definitively proven. Even if its a tip to law enforcement to look into someones activities charges can only be pressed if evidence is found. The person may be innocent in which case their name is cleared but if they are not then many children's innocence might be spared. These images come from somewhere and finding the source is important to identify the victims and prosecute the criminals. If anonymous poisons a tor exit node to catch child predators how does that have anything at all to do with rights? There is no right to view illegal content on the internet and suggesting there is destroys any validity to the point you were trying to make. Of course there needs to be discretion when outing someone doing this type of activity but to suggest we shouldn't go after these criminals is absurd.

Please explain to me. How is anger against this type of activity unjustified?

Witches≠Child Pornographers

My guess would be he put it there himself.  Maybe the feds should be investigating him and see what they can find on his computer.  I bet it wouldn't be pretty.

We need to have a zero tolerance policy for this kind of crap as a community. Anonymous has exposed child pornographers on TOR before and I think its something that should be done more often. I'm not sure on the legalities of it but I think it would be a good idea to offer rewards via Bitcoin for every child pornographer exposed and arrested. I for one would be glad to donate to such a fund. Let's use Bitcoin to fight child pornography and help purge the earth of this scum.

When people say "Bitcoin was created for ..." that is religion and people who say that usually have some sort of agenda akin to a religious belief.  Bitcoin can be used for whatever you want to use it for.  If you want to use it as tool to bypass governments then you can do that (there is not just one "government").  If you want to use it to sell your 99 cent product and avoid the credit card fees you can do that.  If you want to invest you can do that.  If you want to avoid banks you can do that.  And on and on.  Users can use Bitcoin and still comply with regulations if they want.  Bitcoin just gives more choices.

Well said.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: WTF - Kiddy Porn in the Blockchain for life? on: May 03, 2013, 03:02:47 AM
Exactly. Now some mod put this thread to the thrash bin where it belongs.

I think this thread belongs where it is because it raises many valid questions. This is actually one of my theoretical attack vectors against the Bitcoin network. If you can make storing the block chain illegal you can effectively make Bitcoin illegal. Does anyone know which idiot did this entry? I can't be bothered to dig through all the links but if its not known it could be some government agent as part of a wider spread campaign against Bitcoin.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is Bitcoin a Currency or Commodity? on: May 03, 2013, 02:26:04 AM
I have seen this question pop up a lot lately and thought it would be interesting to run a poll to see what the public opinion is. I have stated publicly in my interview with Cliff Kule at http://www.cliffkule.com/2013/04/kule-interview-bitcoin-adam-harding.htm that I believe it is not a currency but a commodity with money like properties (similar to gold).

Please give your answers and explain your reasoning.

This is starting to get really annoying - second time they are compromised, BTC24 f@cked up, Bitfloor terminated, MtGox DDoSed, bitcoin.de with issues, BTC-e compromised too...

BIPS and WalletBit are still doing just fine Cool WalletBit is the only service of its type still running since June 2011 and BIPS is its successor (free Bitcoin processing).
19  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: BIPS.me Free Merchant Solutions and Mobile eWallet - 45 Supported Currencies on: April 23, 2013, 12:51:05 PM
Liberty Reserve and EgoPay payment options have just been added to BIPS. Both can be used to buy and sell Bitcoins faster and more conveniently. It also means less bank fees and shorter waiting periods for many international customers.

Canadian BIPS customers also woke up to a surprise today; Free direct deposits when receiving $100 or more. Business and personal customers alike are eligible to take advantage of this offer and to help put an end to merchant fees. 

BIPS empowers even the smallest merchant to securely accept payments for their products and services anywhere in the world for free. This includes our new Liberty Reserve and EgoPay options which are provided at no additional costs. In doing so, BIPS helps to unlock the full potential of Bitcoin. BIPS is committed to ending merchant processing fees to help your business succeed.

I recommend changing this misleading and slanderous title of this thread immediately. You lost your password plain and simple. Calling it a scam is sensationalist and outright false. We are the same people who brought you WalletBit and are not going anywhere.
