Has th3j35t3r been unmasked?

The Jester shuts down Twitter account, blog entries following alleged threats.

In the [Twitter] message exchange, Cubespherical said they would publish the hacker's real identity and resume after they had acquired a donation of 20,000 BitCoins for whistle-blower web site Wikileaks, an organisation that The Jester has attacked by denial of service (DoS) and disparaged in a series of tweets.

    “Jester's Real Life ID will be given up finally when this bitcoin address 15JDgkwFVXvuxCt66eUQ434ty3jrvwPfGe has 20K BTC (BitCoins).”  - Cubespherical's Twitter account.

About half of the donations would go to Wikileaks, while the remainder would help Cubespherical “hide”, they said.

seems to me that Cubespherical = th3j35t3r

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
