On Monday I got a great scoop on the huge Bitcoin lawsuit between Craig Wright and the estate of Dave Kleiman. Modern Consensus ran my short interview before the courts made any announcement. On Tuesday, someone waited outside my unlisted home address to give me a subpoena for all of my calls, texts, recordings, Whatsapp, and even my encrypted Signal and Snapchat messages. Here’s how it went down and how I’m going to fight it.
For the past several days, Bitcoin/self-promoters have been touting the cryptocurrency as a safe haven from uncertainty in the markets. In other words, they are letting fantasy get in the way of reality.
Have you heard of “The Halving?” Many—if not most—retail traders and investors may not have heard of it. Those that have probably don’t care all that much about it. For that reason, all those HODLers who take up a lot of space on Reddit and Twitter give themselves a pat on the back.
BitForex, the Singapore-based crypto exchange, attempted to bribe Modern Consensus this past week in an effort to get us to remove an old story about them that they didn’t like. We refused.
