if you try to go to https://moonco.in right now, you get an invalid server cert warning. Look at the cert it has. belongs to ice.gov
immigration and customs enforcement.


and incase you missed it, ICE also handles things like off shore poker as well as copyrightinfringement.

Wow. Anyone holding solidcoins, namecoins, or bitcoins likely will lose them if this is all true.

hmm maybe ICE is going to start seizing all bitcoin gambling sites. Doesn't really seem right though since in some countries internet gambling is legal.

Maybe the sites just need to make an effort to verify people using it aren't from the US?

moonco.in was based in the USA.

It is precisely for this reason that Namecoin exists.

And I hope nobody based in the U.S. used their real emails/IPs there...

Why would any sane person start an online gamblish affair in USA ? What next, register a newspaper in Belarus ?

Lolcust ,not sure I guess he might have felt safe because US dollars never changed hands on his site.

But if all poker sites had to do was put the buying of chips on another domain, they would have done it already


His gmail is down as well.. which is odd

Is the guy just redirecting to an ICE thing?

IE: Delete accounts, take money, redirect site to ICE, profit.

that is a possibility we cant discount at the moment.

I dont see our government turning off his gmail and deleting his reddit, not so quickly and why? wouldnt they want the emails to keep coming in? It would also be odd for ice to really care that much and normally they put up the shield and not just a ice cert.


But I will say what I have seen of the man, he seemed like a good guy. I know one guy accidently sent a bunch of coins to his donate addy and mr_moon sent them back pretty promptly. he is also quick to help anyone with is site and seemed genuinely excited about making his site better. Still cant say people dont change and most con artists are good guys until they arent.

Hey guys....

I had deposited 34BTC on moonco for trading. The address that was given to me for the deposit was:

1B6egk2RjiHRnZKjj7aoT89ZtqiQCEQrhL

as you can track on block explorer all the way, he moved them multiple times. Look like he had a total of 896 Bitcoins. maybe more.

Is there any way to get this back? or are am I screwed?

Screwed, unless he comes forward/caught with the wallet.

he claims it was hackers who got all of his passwords and erased all of his shit.

There really at this point isnt a way to prove it either way.  he could have been a scammer or it could have been hackers. But I will say he was under constant attack lately by childish people who were pissed that he was running a solidcoin exchange. He had exactly shit to do with solidcoin and yet some childish people decided to attack an innocent person in their zeal to get back at coinhunter.

This board has become a dump in the past few months.

There is bitcoinforums.net if you want a place that is a bit more mature and has a bit less trolls.

Okay how about you stop spreading crap and wait for the facts to surface huh?

Or is my way of giving facts by waiting for things to transpire and listing them not "factual" enough for you?

So, first power outage, then hackers ?

Was there, by chance, any weird  semitranslucent figures involved ? Or dudes in long leather trenchcoats who wear sunglasses at night ?

To the power outage, i can remember having heared something about a power outage in the news for that region. Not sure it it was same time or few days bevor, but could match.

To those claiming he just took the BTC and went along.

Please take into consideration the amount of BTC/SC traded on his site every day. With the fee of 0.2 or 0.4% for each transaction, he might over time have made a lot more BTC then by just taking the BTCs in his exchange at this early time.
So from my point of few just taking the BTC and scam all for the profit doesn't seem very likely. But maybe i overestimate the number of transactions done on his site every day and underestimate the BTC realy been transfered there.

I *think* he was at ~200k in SC volume before it went down.  Some people have reported having over 100 BTC in a single account.

I used moonco.in for a while but I managed to transfer what little I have away before the second and permanent downtime.   I won't comment on the customs/cheating/abducted by aliens etc.  But I would say that a site in the USA having such a lot of gambling facilities is asking to be closed.  I would doubt it is about any p2p currencies.

I'm pretty sure it's a hoax.  The site owner is trying to pretend the feds have your coins now instead of him.
