Hello everyone.

I am working with two other people, Jonathan Ryan Owens and TT on this forum, on an investigation into the activities of MyBitcoin.  We will be attempting to do the following: (although we may not be able to get all of it done on our own)

> Publishing a hopefully-full address list, consisting of addresses that can be directly linked to MyBitcoin deposit addresses
> Allowing others to add their MyBitcoin address to our list
> Publishing statistics on this list of addresses, including # of coins moved by this wallet on specific days
> Analyzing the list and the statistics for further interesting information, such as exchange activity
> Exposing a public API to track stolen coins, for the use of Bitcoin businesses and exchanges
> Making a new Bitcoin monitor which charts only transactions consisting completely of stolen coins
> Doing our best to make information on MyBitcoin public.

Also, yes, I had to call it MIB, just because.

Updates

Jan 11 '12: We note that the address list, in text format, has already reached a size of 2.5 MB.  We believe that this list should be fairly complete Smiley
Jan 12 '12: Address list has been released.  A total of almost 100,000 addresses were found by our blockchain search.

Jan 12 '12: TT comments that money has been moved between and out of some of these addresses today.

FYI, I would be willing to pay a modest premium for coins that can be traced directly back to notable events.  The less mixed the better.

I'm not entirely sure.  Coins are trickling out of the MyBitcoin wallet.  About 300 were moved from yesterday to today.

Further update: The address list is, surprisingly, STILL NOT COMPLETE.  We are about to release a few hundred thousand more addresses that belong to MyBitcoin.

The numbers look right to me...
We gathered these addresses by assuming that if two addresses both appear as inputs in the same transaction, then they are from the same wallet.

It's entirely possible that MyBitcoin has sent over 38 million BTC, if that's what you're talking about.

piuk: Thanks for the IPs!  They might help in tracking Tom down.

Almost certainly no.  I thought the evidence that it was some guy last named Owen in Canada was pretty strong.

It was very interesting that 1) 'madhatter' on this forum threatened Wagner without much by way of anonymity, and 2) Wagner made the threat public on this forum.  Also, I seem to recall that Wagner admitted to getting all his coins back.  My conjecture was that Owen and Wagner knew each other slightly (likely through Wagner acting as a feeder), and Owen had a suspicion that Wagner had even more skeletons in his closet than he actually did so Wager called his bluff successfully.

Another search has revealed over 10,000 more addresses.  Feel free to post your MyBitcoin addresses in this thread so we can keep investigating.

The "Remaining balance" has 9 decimal places of precision. Bitcoin only allows 8.

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

In the future, books that summarize the history of money will have a line that says, “and then came bitcoin.” It is the economic singularity. And we are living in it now. - Ryan Dickherber

ATTENTION BFL MINING NEWBS: Just got your Jalapenos in? Wondering how to get the most value for the least hassle? Give BitMinter a try! It's a smaller pool with a fair & low-fee payment method, lots of statistical feedback, and it's easier than EasyMiner! (Yes, we want your hashing power, but seriously, it IS the easiest pool to use! Sign up in seconds to try it!)

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.
