Due to rules relating to new posters, I'm stuck placing this here and hoping for the best.http://blockexplorer.com/address/1Q3bsvTBcWF32Bt8FZgKAx7s43crvN9RVi
Has anyone else noticed that the funds from Slush's pool wound up here? There is also a lot of transaction history, going back at least seven months, showing that there has been major transactions of a similar nature.
In several of these transactions the amounts seem almost trivial, until you find them all in one lump sum totaling 150,000 ( One Hundred and Fifty Thousand) BTC getting broken down to amounts under 3,000 (Three Thousand) BTC. The path woven by these sizable transactions is quite intricate, but that could easily be attributed to the nature of the BTC currency and it's generation.
I have seen no evidence indicating any actual generation activity associated with these particular transactions.http://blockexplorer.com/tx/309441d29fa84b912af1c02c44c6c72f7fe31da5cf6d5b8a453e8df6229240b9#o1
This transaction, dated 2012-02-14, shows one hell of a deposit being made to one address:http://blockexplorer.com/address/1ELwS9w4B3vBPt7Mw5Her9GcBbzNMYqhy3
From here, the coins get dispersed to multiple accounts by simple division, and the amounts drop as low as <600 BTC being deposited.
I found this in a little over an hour of tracing, with no real experience mind you, using the transaction that Slush posted in the discussion board relating to the theft from his pool. Near as I can tell, this kind of theft/piracy has been going on for a lot longer then people have been noticing/reporting. And in far greater amounts then 43k BTC.
