BTC Stolen on Live TV | DEA Agent Caught Stealing BTC | Satoshi's Last Post
This video covers the story of a DEA agent who was caught on live TV stealing Bitcoin from a seized wallet. It all started in late 2013 when Bitcoin prices had been on a steady rise.
The DEA seized a large wallet of Bitcoin from a criminal organization, and the agency planned to auction off the coins. However, before the auction could take place, an agent of the DEA was caught live on TV attempting to transfer the Bitcoins from the seized wallet to his own.
The story quickly got out and was met with shock and disbelief from the Bitcoin community. Many were outraged that someone from the government would be stealing from a seized wallet.
The story was even more interesting when it was revealed that the last post on Satoshi’s BitcoinTalk forum was a warning about the dangers of trusting the government with Bitcoin. Many believe that the post was made in response to this incident.
This story highlights the importance of decentralization and why it’s important to keep your coins secure. It also serves as a reminder that the government is not always worthy of trust, even when it comes to something as important as cryptocurrency.
