@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer One of the niftiest SNA I did on #quadriga's #paytrn was scraping #michaelxbt google+ links. I would have been able to pull even more degrees of connections if I had thought of it earlier.
Link analysis >>
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer As the week I was pulling the data was literally the same week that google began to shut down the service. Over time the profile images also disappeared as I had just used the image lines direct from the google+ account
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer I remember there was quite a bit of interaction with #lifeboat's #ericklien. It was also obvious that he was pretty tight with that muppet #francispoiliut who nominated #patryn as a director for the #bitcoinfoundation.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer Of course once the wheels fell off he backtracked saying he hardly knew the bloke. I had a mini rant the other day about #quadriga and how I was perplexed as to the lack of interest/follow-up shown by the #beancounters on flags that I thought were low hanging fruit.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer I actually forgot to rant about what actually pissed me off the most. That was the lack of interest in understanding (and pursuing) the relationship between #alexhanin and #loviehorner.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer #cotten and #patryn prior (dodgy) relationship and #patryn's intimate involvement in #quadriga from the get go - it was clear that they were 'partners', and was easy to conclude that Lovie being MP's girlfriend she was his board puppet.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer Alex "Im only a contractor" Hanin amazingly came under zero scrutiny and from memory was even paid for his services post collapse. What was clear Hanin did all the work (if you read Gerry's and Aaron's DM's threads they literally just circle jerked all day)
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer most of the customer queries and transactions were managed by Hanin on top of being the sole developer. But he had no skin the game. Not inconceivable but highly unlikely, pretty sure he didn't just win a bid on fivver to provide the services.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer Zero chance that Patryn didn't have at least the same or more equity than Gerry, and high probable that on the sly he would leverage over people/equity to hold the balance of control (and also be able to cut loose if/when goes to shit)
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer So when #lovie executes Hanin's contract of services with QCX but not on behalf of QCX (was months before her appointment) but as the Contractor representative.....my experience is these anomalies are the ones that if you keep scratching at will rip wide open.
@CasPiancey @BennettTomlin @ThinkPolOfficer alternatively if you are on beancounter gravytrain file in the 'nothing to see here' pile and fill-out your timesheet accordingly.

@ebit4u Every country has a certain comparative advantage over others. This is what Cyprus does best so in acknowledgement that these start-ups have tiny tiny tiny micro lives they make sure there is high throughput, rapid turnover and tiny little fines when they get caught
@ebit4u kinda genius nurturing 10x the volume of startups, means 10x the licensing and end of life fines keeps the costs down ensuring they can be up and running quick as a flash.
@ebit4u Lets look at the #teman family as one that's managed to grow a couple of brands and while yes the copped a fine at the end of each run it was never such that it hurt their entrepreneurial spirit.

Following the release of #tether's distended testicle I mean attestation. I attempted to reconstruct some numbers....as mentioned only additional information I was able to yield was there was an additional $13m of undisclosed debt.
Armed with the donkey boys amazing double barrel pie chart I've added to the original analysis. The same doc previously shared which I'll share again at the end.
Ironically It's highly likely I've spent more hours on Tether's accounts in the last week than they have collectively in the last couple of years.

@haydentiff @NitrousDelivery @BennettTomlin So the fake unlicensed Gambian entity was the first Euro EXIM "group company" it would have been setup (and sold) as turn key "shelf company" - Gambian incorporated with banking license and #probanx banking software (more than half these fake Gambian companies
@haydentiff @NitrousDelivery @BennettTomlin not only turned out to be fake/unlicensed companies that #probank provided banking software for but Probanx were the facilitators of registering the domains/branding etc. >>> here's the list
@haydentiff @NitrousDelivery @BennettTomlin So as you can see from the certificate the company was incorporated in Feb 2015 and the certificate showing the acquirers name is 8 May 2015. This date's important.

@FinTelegram In your #itradefx article I see you were able to confirm #pradexx as their payment processor. I looked at the sub-domain uiservices.pradexx.com checking its IP address provides a pretty interesting list of other 'brands'

fintelegram.com/pradexx-again-… ImageImage
@FinTelegram I see #pradex and their dodgy partners are still spinning up new reskins of their scammy sites. Keep an eye out for #ftspaysolutions #kopayment #payotop #securepayment3d Image
The four mentioned 'rebrands' have been added since the beginning of March 2021. Image

I'd been peripherally aware of @abt_company last year working on couple of M&A DD engagements....an OTC shell slipstreaming into the in vouge sector of the time....reeked of the standard P&D playbook.
By chance I stumbled across them today and had a flick through their business and numbers....I have to admit I was way off the mark; the recycling business far more underwhelming and the pump exponentially higher than than I could have imaged.
Hows this for snake oil salesman. The global market was worth $1B last year...we are building a plant 20% of the global market .....topline number is $200m pa ....and its gonna run for the next 50 years. Image

@bitcoinlawyer @Tether_to Clearly Tether Limited is registered with FINCEN as a MSB anyone can search and confirm. Putting aside the registered vs regulated debate. Is it not misleading to suggest that @Tether_to is regulated?
@bitcoinlawyer @Tether_to Tether states that since Jan 2018 it no longer serving the US market, and pursuant TOS "tether limited" is ringfenced specifically to US customers, of which there are none.
@bitcoinlawyer @Tether_to since Tether Limited doesn't transaction with customers; all customers fall under the umbrella of the BVI entity Tether International Limited which is NOT registered/regulated by FINCEN.
