June 2018 - Times of Israel reports: “According to TOI, it was “one of hundreds of Israeli-run boiler rooms operating worldwide in a global plague that, to the mounting dismay and incomprehension of international law enforcement bodies, is being left unchecked by Israeli law enforcement. Israeli fraud gone global...Just the tip of the iceberg...Israeli law enforcement has yet to indict a single operative from an industry that has stolen billions.” ... ne-global/

Israeli “Nigerian Lottery” scams ... ted-states
Some of the often inaccurately termed “Nigerian” scams have also been connected to Israel.
In 2010 seven Israelis were charged with scamming tens of millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called “Nigerian scam,” according to Ha’aretz. Eventually, 12 Israelis were charged in the scheme to swindle elderly Americans.

Unaccountable to anyone. No $ is coming out of my old wallet.

Bitmain is also currently facing two lawsuits. The first one, a class action lawsuit of $5 million focused on unauthorized mining, was filed in the North District Court of California against Bitmain’s United States- and China-based entities.

The second suit was purportedly filed against Bitmain,, Roger Ver and the Kraken Bitcoin Exchange. The case alleges that the defendants jointly used unfair methods and practices to manipulate the BCH network for their benefit.

The most comprehensive report on the Israeli Blockchain and crypto ecosystem to-date.
:lol: No.

Israel presents itself as one of the most important hubs of the global ecosystem. Its innovative high tech community plays an important role in the development of the future of cryptocurrencies and blockchain innovation. Its regulatory regime is transforming itself to be a hospitable, fertile ground for future growth. There are currently over 140 companies in the Israeli ecosystem, with over $1.3 billion invested.

The Israeli blockchain industry has grown to encompass over 200 startups as of 2018, according to the Israeli Blockchain Association, an organization that aims to educate, develop and empower the local blockchain community.

The 200-plus startups were featured in the organization’s third Israeli Blockchain Startup Map, released Thursday.

The organization reports that 57 Israeli Blockchain startups are concentrated in the financial tech (fintech) category, while 37 companies are in the protocols/core Infrastructure sectors, with 23 in the security sector, which has seen a large increase.

Twenty blockchain startups have ceased to operate since the beginning of the year, according to the report.

“The Israeli blockchain industry is currently experiencing both a boost and a transformation,” says Roman Gold, founding partner of the Israeli Blockchain Association. “On the one hand, we see unprecedented growth among blockchain startups, but on the other hand, many of them are skipping ICOs (initial coin offerings) in favor of equity financing.”

Would I trust Israel with my money? Or Bitcoins or other Cryptocurrencies? When a country sells stolen secrets from their supposed ally, the USA, and there are many instances of the same in the past decades, would you trust them?

Report: Israel Passes U.S. Military Technology to China
24 Dec 2013
via Defense News - ... y-to-china
Secret U.S. missile and electro-optics technology was transferred to China recently by Israel, prompting anger from the U.S. and causing a senior Israeli defense official to resign.

The head of defense exports for the Israeli Defense Ministry resigned after a U.S. investigation concluded that technology, including a miniature refrigeration system manufactured by Ricor and used for missiles and in electro-optic equipment, was sent to China, according to the Israeli newspaper Maariv.

Another Israeli news site, Aretz Sheva, reports the U.S. is concerned the technology could ultimately find its way to Iran, which last year sought to buy military equipment from China for its nuclear program.

Ricor, on its company website, identifies a number of defense programs using its miniature cryo-coolers, including UAVs, airborne enhanced vision systems, missile warning systems, hand-held thermal imagers and thermal weapons sights.

The Maariv report identified the Israeli defense official as Meir Shalit, and said he apologized to U.S. officials on a recent visit.

Israel has a long record of getting U.S. military technology to China.

In the early 1990s then-CIA Director James Woolsey told a Senate Government Affairs Committee that Israel had been selling U.S. secrets to China for about a decade. More than 12 years ago the U.S. demanded Israel cancel a contract to supply China with Python III missiles, which included technology developed by the U.S. for its Sidewinder missiles, The Associated Press reported in 2002.

(Canadian) Crypto Exchange Says It Can't Repay $190 Million to Clients After Founder Dies With Only Password.

Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX says it cannot repay most of $190 million in client holdings after its 30-year-old founder Gerald Cotten, the only person who knew the passwords to its “cold storage,” unexpectedly died in India in December 2018, Coindesk reported on Friday.

In a sworn affidavit with the Nova Scotia Supreme Court, widow Jennifer Robertson said that QuadrigaCX owes its customers some $190 million in both cryptocurrency and fiat money. QuadrigaCX has filed for creditor protection because it says it cannot access the funds stored in “cold storage,” just the comparatively smaller amount in a “hot wallet” used for transfers, CoinDesk wrote:

The exchange holds roughly 26,500 bitcoin ($92.3 million USD), 11,000 bitcoin cash ($1.3 million), 11,000 bitcoin cash SV ($707,000), 35,000 bitcoin gold ($352,000), nearly 200,000 litecoin ($6.5 million) and about 430,000 ether ($46 million), totaling $147 million, according to the affidavit.

It was not clear what portion of the exchange’s crypto holding were kept in cold storage, versus its hot wallet. In the affidavit, Robertson explained that “only a minimal amount of coins” were stored in the hot wallet, but specifics were not provided.

Chainalysis, the company that works to track crypto transactions, has completed their second fundraising round. Led by venture capital firm Accel, a total of $30 million was raised.
Chainalysis Doubling Down in London IMF is London, IRS is IMF stepchild, the new businesses that are popping up will snoop on all things Cryptos, that is how the IMF operates and nothing is free and everything on Earth is monitored for potential profit. The little people will be the one's paying in the end.

One of the first moves they will make with the cash injection is to double their employees in London. Accel’s London-based Phillippe Botteri gains a board seat at Chainalysis as a result.

The city is optimal for its proximity to top universities that increasingly recognize cryptocurrency as a technology poised to reshape the way people exchange value across the world. The office will position us to work with the major financial institutions and cryptocurrency businesses based in that market, as well as European governments.

Chainalysis is one of the biggest contractors with the IRS. As CCN reported last year, they received the bulk of the money the IRS spent tracking crypto payments – more than $5 million.
