Knightmb would have been a billionaire now if he had held on to his 371,000 BTC. Cheesy

$2,742 X 371,067.36 = $1,017,466,701.12

Instead he's in the federal slammer for extorting the Romney's Sad

Nobody needed to crack Tor, however: when he offered his story around, he left enough information about himself on the USB keys he sent media outlets (as well as a couple of cat pics).

From the judgement:

    All three flash drives contained a file named “Romney1040-Collection.7z.” ... The unallocated space on the drives also held text strings and two photos of cats. The PricewaterhouseCoopers flash drive held the text string, “5276 dolphin kathryn.” … The Democratic Party drive had the string “4154 dolphin KnightMB.”

    A series of Google searches using “KnightMB” revealed an email address, knightmb@knightmb.dyns.org, and that a 33 year-old Tennessean named Michael Brown made online posts connected to that address

Interesting how he got caught.

He should have just enjoyed his money and pay his taxes instead of getting in trouble. People's greed for power is always their downfall.

i'll bet he still has most. he claimed to have given most of it away to wikileaks and the rest went on paying off some debts. musta been quite a windfall for wikileaks and a significant amount of debt even when bitcoin was valued at a dollar.

however i don't get his involvement in some weird alt and all this extortion stuff.

he also claims to have more than a few clues about satoshi's real location and could verify his online identity due to some private communications.
