First - congrats for making the list of notable topics this past decade.  Smiley

Latest update on the Pirate ponzi scheme.  Turns out OG was paid extra profit by Pirate to bring in more coin to scam.  Pirate swore to the SEC he returned thousands of coins to OG, but OG kept them and didn't make his investors whole.

Thank you for the comments. I think this update is more suited for the History - Bitcoin Savings and Trust and Pirateat40 on Bitcointalk (PONZI) Thread that goes into more detail about Bitcoins biggest ponzi.

I haven't followed the whole OG saga closely but I will add a link to the thread there and look into documenting it more later.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

August 15, 2010, [EXPLOIT]Bitcoin vulnerability creates 184 million bitcoins resulting in a patch.
It were 184 billion (with a B) bitcoins according to the wiki.

November 08, 2010,[POST] First reported use of the term "shitcoin" in reference to alt coins
You say that now, but if bitcoin really takes off I can see lots of get-rich-quick imitators coming on the scene: gitcoin, nitcoin, witcoin, titcoin, shitcoin...
The concept of a "shitcoin" had been outlined under the name "Zitcoin" before, so I believe it should at least get an honorary mention.

All free men, wherever they may live, can use Bitcoin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Bitcoiner!"

Hello xtraelv,

I come back with more suggestions for your historic thread.

If you think they worth, you can add these users to the list of notable persons: evoorhees (Erik Voorhees), Luke-Jr, Mircea Popescu and Bitmain.

Besides, regarding the list below:
Notable people:
Hal received the first bitcoin transaction
adam3us Creator of hashcash (1997) (Proof of Work)
Sirius Bitcoin Core Developer and Bitcointalk.org domain owner (First dev to work with Satoshi)
MemoryDealers Bitcoin Jesus
MagicalTux MtGox Founder
silkroad  & altoid Silkroad Founder
Altoid Silkroad founder
pirateat40 - the 500K BTC ponzi organiser Exlained here 

Famous people list will only contain usernames and will not identify their roles unless they have publicly disclosed it on bitcointalk.

I think you listed twice the Silk Road founder. Also, I think the ones mentioned in the list can be listed with their real names, as they are already public or they stated it public here. For example: Hal stated here that Hal Finney is his name; Adam Back admitted here that the profile adam3us belongs to him; Sirius admitted here his name is Martti Malmi; MemoryDealers states right into his signature he is Roger Ver; regarding MagicalTux I don't know if he stated / admitted here his name is Mark Karpeles, but this information is public anyway; pirateat40 could appear also with his name after it became public (Trendon Shavers); the only questionable profiles (about the true identity) being altoid and silkroad, where is difficult to say 100% sure that they belong indeed to Ross Ulbricht or not (or just to Ross or more people).

Maybe, if you take the above into consideration and you add the names to these profiles already listed, you could add their name and also their nickname (if any) - for example " MemoryDealers Roger Ver "Bitcoin Jesus"".

It seems like the epic block size debate and fork threads from 2015 and 2016 are missing from the OP. I'm not sure what the criteria are, but these threads are legendary to me:

Bitcoin XT - Officially #REKT (also goes for BIP101 fraud)
ToominCoin aka "Bitcoin_Classic" #R3KT
Estranged Core Developer Gavin Andresen Finally Makes Sensible 2MB BIP Proposal!

I used to spend hours and hours reading these mega-threads...

In addition to my previous post, I'd like also to highlight the profile of Charlie Shrem: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=21181. He can also be listed with hus real name since he stated as well his name here.
