To help Roman Shtylman apprehend the one who hacked bitfloor.com and took a quarter of a million dollars, I offer up this thread to hopefully nail the bastard. With all due respect (currently) to Roman, this first post will shed some light on the making of bitfloor.com, for we need to start somewhere.



From the dump: 50879,shtylman,shtylman@gmail.com               (research date of dump)
and Vadim Graboys is: 51163,dimva,dimva13@gmail.com

My name is Vadim Graboys.

I currently work at Chartbeat, working on a custom in-memory database, building distributed systems for machine learning, and exploring various data visualizations.

Previously, I worked at Bloomberg, where I built a domain-specific language for modeling structured securities, a simluation engine for predicting the behavior of mortgage-backed securities, and a WYSIWYG development environment for structuring mortgage-backed securities. I also built a system for finding, using public SEC filings, insider traders which seem to be illegally trading based on inside information.

Not a fact, but a speculation on my part: I think Roman was taken in by someone in his own circle. In my few dealings with him, he strikes me as a very smart but trusting person.

I'll accept your assessment, hence looking at his circle(s).

Don't forget that he willfully associates and promotes his business through known scammer and pedophile, Bruce Wagner.  People who are calling for reinvestment into Bitfloor are straight up asking to lose money.  They WANT to be scammed.  Over. And over. and over.  By asking for it again and again they have legitimized scamming.  Through practice, it is ethical to scam in the bitcoin community.

Two days before the hack, this was posted:

At one time the BitFloor signup page read:

Quote
Giving you access to your funds is very important to us.

To help ensure continued operation, we follow the US AML (anti-money laundering) practices outlined by FinCEN. USD withdraws are capped at $1,000 daily and $10,000 monthly. We reserve the right to ask for identifying information and to adjust these policies.

You will be notified of any policy changes via email.

I no longer see BitFloor's AML policy anywhere on the BitFloor site.  Is this published anywhere?

I will be adding back shortly. It was removed from the signup page as it was not accurately reflecting your actual caps. No policy has changed and there will be no fund movement disruption.

And so far, still not back up.

At the time Mr. Bitfloor appeared on Bruce's show, it was well known that Bruce had committed a mortgage scam and was a key suspect in other scams.  If Bruce's history was known to Mr. Bitfloor, why would he associate professionally with him?  Perhaps Mr. Bitfloor is only guilty of gross negligence (which still begs the question of why people would still urge others to "invest" in him); however, his ties to Bruce Wagner ought to raise suspicions.

You are giving Bruce A HELL of a lot more credit that you should be. He couldn't figure out how to operate a video camera for the first week or two. What makes you think he knows how to set up or hack Bitcoin exchanges?

Bruce is just the public face; Ed provides the brains and is Bruce's puppetmaster.  Ed takes care of the paper trail, keeps his hands clean, and will roll Bruce to the FBI in a second.   Shocked

Vadim Graboys is no longer associated with BitFloor nor is he a stakeholder. Please remove all the personal information you have posted about him here. I have also notified the board moderators about these posts so they are aware of the situation.

This is Vadim. I helped start bitfloor, but I haven't been involved with its operations since December of last year, due to personal reasons. I officially signed over all my shares and intellectual property, etc earlier this year.

There's no reason I would hack roman, as he is one of my best friends. Also, I make a great living and definitely don't need the money.

The address listed also isn't my address. I haven't lived there for 7 years. Please don't harass the people living there now.

Get paid a 0.1% rebate for providing liquidty.
Pay only a 0.4% fee for taking liquidity.
