After eliminated from Twitter and Reddit is the account of the Darkish Overlord Hacking group from Steemit. It’s at the moment unclear whether or not the choice has been taken Steemit or the group itself.
The argument & # 39; why Bitcoin does & # 39; obtained a shock earlier this week when a hacker / leaky group referred to as the Darkish Overlord started to supply what have been allegedly incriminating paperwork about 9/11, for a worth.
The Darkish Overlords have requested the Web group generally to ship bitcoins and as extra bitcoins have been despatched, extra paperwork will seem. The paperwork will seem in 5 teams, with probably the most silent paperwork being the costliest. "Layer 1" has already been launched.
Nearly instantly the authorities which are being held towards them. They have been banned from Twitter and Reddit. And they also went over to what many thought their bastion of free expression can be, the blockchain targeted Steemit.
That perception appears unfounded. Steemit has its personal cryptocurrency (really two), however additionally it is only a web site and that web site has directors like all others. So it’s definitely doable that somebody at Steemit has deleted their account. Try to go to the messages from the Darkish Overlord or their account profile on Steemit ends in a web page not discovered error. Luckily, their messages archived on the blockchain.
We contacted Steemit CEO Ned Scott yesterday to ask whether or not the removing of the hacker group was on account of a ban or to the group itself, however had by no means been heard on the time of the press.
It must be famous, nevertheless, that the removing from Steemit doesn’t imply the tip of the crowdfunding marketing campaign of The Darkish Overlord. Bitcoin, in contrast to Steemit, cannot prohibit people or teams from utilizing the community. And whereas it could be tougher to seek out the leaks and Bitcoin handle of the Darkish Overlord, that info remains to be obtainable (and may be discovered of their archived messages).
Previous to becoming a member of Steemit, there was hypothesis that they might be part of Voat or Gab, two different social media websites with the emphasis on free speech. We have been unable to seek out such accounts on the time of the press.
Finally, the occasion nonetheless exhibits the advantage of Bitcoin. Of their Steemit put up they stated that they weren’t politically motivated. They declare that their solely motivation is cash – or on this case – pseudonymous web cash.
Though it will be good if each leaker was a mannequin of ethical superiority, solely focused on revealing the crimes of the highly effective as Edward Snowden, that’s not a actuality. In actuality, most individuals are motivated by cash. Solely with a system like bitcoin can individuals be stimulated on this means. Paypal and MasterCard don’t let their customers ship cash to the Darkish Overlord hackgroup. However Bitcoin will do this as a result of Bitcoin is free.
The Darkish Overlord has already launched "layer 1" of their paperwork, solely the time (and bitcoin) will present whether or not they have every little thing else that they declare. We are going to proceed to watch the scenario.
