You'll probably all get a laugh out of this. Bulanula's reddit account
is suspiciously empty, so I figured he could be a sock puppet of GoWest. His first comment is about upholding the law, so I ended up at the bitcoin police wiki. There I saw that there was a pretty recent left edit by casascius
. I figured he could probably be in on it too, if GoWest contacted him to set this up. It seemed like he had been collaborating with bitcoinsforchristmas, betforbtc, and bittleships, so why not casascius too? His edit left a comment that said, "Somehow, I think Bitcoin Police is an embarrassment to the Bitcoin community, as it leads the reasonable observer to conclude that we're completely lost in fantasy land, and that bitcoins are its fantasy currency." Before that I had read GoWest's recent comment history on reddit
too, and I remembered one comment in particular made today about using Bitcoin as an ingame currency. Specifically he says, "Can you imagine putting a raiding party together to go after a dragon with the equivalent of thousands of dollars attached to it?" I figured, he must surely know about Dragon's Tale
, so why doesn't he mention it? He just drops the word dragon in there! Suspicious! And with casascius' comment about being 'lost in fantasy land, and that bitcoins are its fantasy currency.' It fits! He must be cooperating with the Dragon's tale people too! So unfortunately I spent the rest of the time on the dragon's tale website, trying to spot something, anything
Fun game GoWest!
My brain asplode!
