Bitfi Is Threatening Those Who Were Supposed to Get Paid for Hacking the Wallet
We are all getting sick of the story of John McAfee’s “unhackable” Bitfi, but the situation keeps gaining momentum. Let’s quickly sum up what has happened so far. - John McAfee launched a bounty campaign for his wallet, promising first $100k, then $250k to a person or people who would break into Bitfi. - A cyber security company claimed to have done so and was completely ignored by both McAfee and other Bitfi employees. - After that a new group of researchers tried to hack Bitfi and succeeded as well. This time McAfee reacted by saying that a wallet can be considered hacked only if the hackers obtain coins, and no coins were stolen from Bitfi. What happened next shocked the crypto community. Bitfi published a tweet which contained direct threats aimed at the researchers participating in their “bounty”. The tweet was deleted shortly afterwards, but most people managed to see it. The campaign which was supposed to bring recognition and popularity to Bitfi is now only bringing it “black” PR. Or was it a planned action? Subscribe to The Coin Shark news in Facebook:
