Due to false accusations from electrum.org, they have ruined our reputation and brand of Electrum Pro. They managed to trick several news outlets to slander us.
If they were false accusations... and it was truly slander... wouldn't they just take Thomas (and/or "Electrum Technologies GmbH") to court? Huh Ohhhhh that's right... it would actually have to be a factual claim... not the desperate claims of a scammer who got caught red-handed Tongue Roll Eyes

I love how they think deliberately stealing seeds is the same as a security flaw in code... Roll Eyes

also... 25BTC for a domain? BARGAIN! I'll take two! Tongue

So this story ended pretty fast, at least as to the fact that the page is no longer online which is actually the most important thing.Now it's just a matter of domain, who will buy it and for what purpose.

I have to admit that it is a little strange that someone is investing significant resources in project like this, and that he did not consider that he will be very quick discovered and in just a few days to finish like this.Is it only the ignorant and amateur work or it may be something else?

That's true. If it came from Thomas himself it would be cryptographically signed and he could therefore be prosecuted for false advertising and producing malware. However, this is OBVIOUSLY NOT the case here.

And 25btc for a phishing domain is quite pricey especially since it will probably be blacklisted by a lot of people.


Anybody have the public keys, IPs, companies they used like things for anti-ddos and any registrar info.

There is a good comment in the reddit false accusation against the real Electrum which caught my attention. Some guy was replying that why are you blatantly scamming or did your fake scam investment got out too soon and you missed even ROI because .com domain and DDOS.
25 BTC is really a lot.
What I wonder though is how far can a human being go to scam other human beings. That is the real sad part of our society.

according to that linked reddit thread the (real) electrum guys said that the electrum.com domain owner was asking the price of a house in 2012. 25 btc wouldn't buy much of a house in many places these days. i'd be very interested to know how this guy got his hands on the domain especially since it should be worth more than it was in 2012, not less.

There are houses that are on the market for $200000 which is probably about 25 bitcoin. I wouldn't be annoyed if someone were to tip me that amount either Cheesy...
