It is already a failing attempt however, as the previously vocal victims of MyBitcoin have signed up to participate in the project, but have provided absolutely no data of any kind to date. If things move on in this direction much longer, the UABB will cancel its efforts and let the community once again handle it in its own unorganized way.

Having just noticed a comment from you three weeks ago in which you dismiss people's concerns about MyBitcoin in a particularly long, personal and insult-filled fashion, I have to wonder if perhaps that's for the best - and indeed if this was even an honest attempt to find out the truth about MyBitcoin at all. It's too long to quote the whole thing here, so I'll leave everyone with this choice titbit:

Seriously guys. If you LOST MONEY, POST PROOF. Stop with this spraying of diarrhea on the walls. I'm not saying MyBitCoin is safe-- hell, no place is. I wouldn't trust ANY of you to hold my wallet, much less the door for me on the way out of a building. That doesn't mean that it's a SCAM. Your libelous and ridiculously abusing and ignorant banter has driven me insane, and for those of you who can't understand where my aggression is coming from-- this is the 999th thread I've read where people blindly believe what the poster is posting and go along with it like some rerun of high school idiocy. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I read #1000. I'll probably just donate all my BTC to that OP cause I'm random and cool like that.

Sounds like the beginning of the end for this so called investigation, I can't see how you plan to fund private investigators anyway without taking donations. I am willing to share any information needed for my case against mybitcoins, Including transfer dates, times and explorerblocks, I have a full record of all the coins sent to the mybitcoin wallet as all the coins where made from mining and I only ever used 1 site, that site supplys every bit of info regarding the bitcoin transfers. I do hope for the "UABB" sake that they do get some where with this investigation, It would give it great rep and the community would see you as legit and not just some made up thing that has done nothing of use. Good luck with it and hopefully you dont give up so easy.

The UABB sounds like intellectual masturbation by one poster and every post I read signed MATTHEW N WRIGHT is another step to confirm that.

matthew what qualifications do you have to run something like uabb, other than the ability to make a website--or more likely paying someone to build your website?

have you even graduated from high school?

I agree with the public consensus these days on what it "looks like", and that there are few people here who actually have the energy or experience to know when something is good or bad by looking at, and prefer to just yell scam or 'fake' at the first sign of a startup.

It's not easy trying to start potentialy one of the most influencial organizations to affect Bitcoin. I realize not everyone sees it that way, even when looking at it from a calm and intellectual approach, but that's why it's on me, my colleagues, and our efforts in the meatscape to prove it! And by god we will  ^_^

I'd love to believe that your business is real.  But you come across as a dickhead that has a "holier than thou" attitude.  You shouldn't insult people and expect them to do business with you at the same time.  The tradehill guys do a great job of being active in a positive way.

Business is being spammed as hard as Flexcoin was, which I no longer support based on spamming the MyBitcoin users so hard within the threads.  

UABB needs no name, if a group of people want to take this case on, no need to wear an advertisement for a site, mob, or gang.   Do your good deeds and that is all that matters, right?   Making sure this case is solved, right?

The only person I could see wanting to collect all data regarding MyBitcoin is people who would gain from events of MyBitcoin.     Otherwise, keep all talk regarding this situation in the public eye on the forums.

Also, the forums no longer on Bitcoin.org in itself was a huge mistake imo.  First sign of Bitcoin loosing faith in itself, the inability to accept the craziness of most the users and trying to separate itself from what built it Sad


Something big is going to happen at that Bitcoin conference coming up, or it will be the scam to hit the news as so many people fly out to a convention that doesn't end up existing or something lol

Remember folks, the UABB is not fake, just a scam.

After some long and hard thought weighing the pros and cons of continuing on attempting to be any kind of a movement in finding out what happened with MyBitcoin, at the advice of my colleagues and good friends I have decided to officially remove it from our list of priorities completely.

It's OK, I think I found someone just as qualified:

Apparently, yes.

Except that the internet police are about as real as they always were.  In this episode they're changing their name randomly (but not their logo), and apparently don't know how to use google.

I hesitate to call it a scam, as a scam has to actually make money of some sort to be a scam.

I love the laundry list of "experience".
If anything, being in law enforcement that long should have told you that it is quite easy to get away with such a thing, especially law enforcement in Korea!

Nobody has come forward with information because nobody has information.  It's nothing more complicated than that.

To tell you the truth, this 'investigation' attempt into MyBitcoin has truly opened my eyes to both A) how the snide community treats newcomers, and B) how much of I dick I can sound like sometimes. Even my CFO was surprised. He said "maybe you shouldn't post so much". I couldn't help but chuckle because I knew he was right.

The truth is, I want to be part of the community in a humorous and involved way, but at the same time I have thrusted some serious responsibilities upon myself and I haven't quite gotten used to that yet (and may never considering I don't particularly enjoy it).

Also, I can learn a lot from most anyone who already had a business site up and running BEFORE they advertised it (-_-;;Wink but I am sometimes prevoked by the seeming lack of logic and 'cover-all-bases' insults from people. From the community's side, it appears that someone who claims to be a business owner is being 'arrogant' to a poor, innocent user.

But in reality, it's that user1 says "Your business is fake because it has A" while user2 is saying "Your business is fake because it doesn't have enough A". If anything, I'm learning a valuable lesson in not-caring-at-all-what-anyone-on-these-forums-think-and-just-doing-the-work-I'm-going-to-do-anyway-regardless, something my colleagues have been trying to tell me.

My apologies for having anyone believe I am anything but genuine, but I really don't deal with baseless insults too well, it's not the part about being insulted, it's the part about people being allowed to live in society who treat others like that. It's not just bullying, it's de-evolutionary.



Morning, Matthew. Bruno here (my real first name). Remember to feed the posters of this community first thing in the morning prior to posting. It calms them down a bit. But since you didn't, I envision what's going to happen next. Some members here are going to want to investigate UABB because it looks to good to be true. I won't be surprised if they choose UABB to head the investigation.

After some long and hard thought weighing the pros and cons of continuing on attempting to be any kind of a movement in finding out what happened with MyBitcoin, at the advice of my colleagues and good friends I have decided to officially remove it from our list of priorities completely.

Growing up from a family highly involved in law enforcement, personally having worked on a task force for the past 3 years here in Korea as an investigator for academic fraud and drug trafficking, and having worked since childhood with security and law enforcement for IT/network security, it is difficult for me think that given tremendous evidence of foul play, the owner of MyBitcoin could get away scott-free. This, not any greed or 'grab for funds' was the main reasoning behind involving myself and one of my newest, most promising, and arguably most useful organizations in an attempt at investigating the matters that surround it.

I obviously made a large erorr in judgement when it came to the willingness of the community to band together for the common good, and also hadn't expected that such a viscious and vile response would be given to any one person trying to organize anything (or as it has been referred to, "taking charge").

The problem does not lie in my inabilities to financially support such an investigation from competent and willing individuals who are experts in doing so, nor is it in the general lack of evidence people have provided (which as a side note has caused me to lose some serious faith in the community as awhole) in an effort to band together. The problem lies in my original mistake of claiming this to be an effort of the UABB, which is in fact not cut out to handle such an activity under its own business model.

Due to my mistake, the UABB now suffers a loss of reputation, individuals shouting 'scam', and people thinking it's just a shell to 'grab some funds'. This is disasterously wrong and the opposite of what the intention of the UABB is. The UABB is an extremely useful tool for helping to create a better, safer and happier Bitcoin community. It may not be finished to everyone's likings yet, it may in fact still have a hidden WHOIS (WHOCARES) and it may in fact still have a few bugs in the code that I will fix on my own no doubt-- but that doesn't make it any less of a useful, important service to the community.

For this reason and this reason alone, I regret to say that I will be ending any further official participation in the investigations, if there ever will be any, and am no longer attempting to organizer or contribute (I'll still contribute personally, but in a much quieter way) and apologize to anyone who may have gotten the wrong idea as to what the true nature and intentions of the UABB are in fact.

For those of you who have already signed up for the UABB, are already emailing me daily asking when it will be ready, and those who have already inquired about the terms for accreditation, the site is expected to be finished by the end of the week. I have asked for some more help as I can long handle all of these projects on my own (I am the sole web developer, and write everything by hand in Notepad++, hence the time delays).

I feel this is not only a step in the right direction for me personally, professionally and towards the community, but that it will free the UABB of any liabilities that may have existed to my poor judgement. My apology is also extended to those working with me who I may have upset.


To a brighter future, a new UABB, and a less hateful community-- for all.


Matthew N. Wright









What I get out of this.  Is that since you can't help people under the cover of this made up group, you wont' help at all?

Proven scam?

Or were your intentions not fully to help?

I think you're just looking for drama now.
Was there drama?

I'm looking out for my interests and just the interests of a general user Smiley   I like this approach of helping and being awesome because you want to.   The UABB name will survive and be huge if it cracks this case.

Until then, please stop hoarding the forums with the illusion that a competent company or group of people is on the case, as you have to prove you are competent first.   Enough people shout there wares, histories, and do nothing.

Ok, so I understand that Matt isn't investigating MyBitcoin anymore for some reason... Has anyone at LEAST called that Leaseweb host to see what the truth of this matter is? Seriously, we could all rest a lot easier if we all knew whether they took down the site for some legal reason, or if the owner of the site took it down themselves...

If they shut it down due to lack of funds because the guy didn't pay, then there's a chance that we could throw down $20 and get all of our money back.

Seriously folks.
