1/ Let’s review all the direct scams Bitboy has worked with in the past. Just in case you forgot here is the flyer with how much he charges.

I received this a while back by posing as a project interested in a promotion.
🧵 👇 ImageImage
2/After Coffeezilla made a video on paid promotions in the crypto space last month an Official Bitboy representative stated they “rigorously vet” projects.

I uncovered 7 direct scams Bitboy actively worked with and promoted to his audience. Image
3/ In Fall 2020 Bitboy worked with $MYX and even was warned by community members. Bitboy has since deleted the video. ImageImage
4/ Also in fall 2020 Bitboy worked with $DISTX a video he titled “my most trusted coin”

He went on to change the video title later on. The video also had zero promotion disclosure & project exit scammed.

The video is still up but don’t worry it has been archived safely by me. ImageImageImageImage
5/ Now we have Zao Finance another project that exit scammed in Fall 2020.

He deleted the tweet but don’t worry I recovered it.

At least he put #ad on the scam right? ImageImageImage
6/ Here’s $ETHY another scam Bitboy worked with in December 2020 that ended up rugging

Notice a pattern here with deleted videos? ImageImageImage
7/ Another one people forget about is $LOCK (Meridian Network) a project he covered twice in late 2020.

The project’s Twitter & Website are no longer there and once again Bitboy deleted his video on it. ImageImageImage
8/ We have the $CPH slow rug promoted by Bitboy (also deleted)

Coin was delayed for years and founder has sketchy past.

Search “$cph scam” for more ImageImage
9/ We also have $PAMP another scam promoted by Bitboy. The video hasn’t been deleted but is unlisted.

I’ve also downloaded this video. ImageImageImage
10/ I’m sure there is more so feel free to drop any comments if you’ve found any

It’s clear simple due diligence is not done and it’s profits over followers with shills. Just bc you delete a video doesn’t mean it didn’t happen

As per usual follow for more threads in the future Image
In case you missed my thread on Bitboy stealing art for his NFTs
An example of plagiarism Bitboy did
Another example of plagiarism Bitboy did this past year

1/ An investigation into the alleged $11.1M @PrismaFi exploiter 0x77 (Trung) and the multiple other exploits they are connected to. Image
2/ On March 28, 2024 the Prisma team observed a series of transactions on the MigrateTroveZap contract which resulted in a loss of 3257 ETH ($11.1M)

Exploiter address

A comprehensive post-morten of the incident can be found below:
3/ At first the attacker communicated with the Prisma deployer the attack was whitehat.

Later that day all of the funds were deposited to Tornado Cash contradicting that statement.

The exploiter began making outrageous demands and asked for a $3.8M (34%) whitehat bounty

This amount is significantly higher than the industry standard 10% essentially extorting the team as the treasury does not have sufficient assets to reimburse users.Image

1/ An investigation into the French dev Jolan Lacroix who recently stole $900K from the TICKER presale on Base before spending the funds on meme coins and Milady NFTs.
2/ TICKER launched a presale on March 16 raising a total of 877 ETH ($3.19M) via Party App on Base.

The token distribution was supposed to be: 24% LP, 71% presale/airdrops, 1% early contributors, 4% reserved for errors.

The team was fully anon.
3/ Immediately after TGE was where things went bad.

15% of the TICKER supply was sent to a dev (Jolan) assisting with the project to distribute the airdrop.

Instead of doing this Jolan sold 13% of the supply for $900K rugging everyone supporting the project.

1/ An investigation into the phishing scammer Ultra (Nicolas) who has stolen millions through Discord compromises such as MetaKey and X/Twitter spam just to spend it all gambling on Stake, rare usernames, and Roblox items.
2/ In Feb 2023 the Dead Army Skeleton Discord was compromised
after an admin was phished.

The attacker spammed phishing links in the announcements channel with funds ending up at offtherip.eth and Monkey Drainer.

3/ A few days later Ultra thought it would be funny to flex $200K of the funds he had stolen by sending it to his “friend” Death.

Shortly after Death then steals the funds from Ultra for himself.

Then after Ultra starts crying.

1/ Some time has passed but there is now evidence to share how Tyronejkd is connected to the $1M 0xCrystals/0xCube scam and @3PEACEART account.

Let’s jump in.
2/ Last bull run this account popped up engagement farming with fake giveaways, stolen posts, & stolen punk pfp

They launched an NFT project they claimed was free with a limited supply. When people minted the actual price was 0.25 ETH & not free

When called out for the scheme they would delete posts & change usernamesImage
3/ Let’s go through some of the evidence that ties TyroneJKD to the project.

Here is TyroneJKD funding the 0xcube.eth address (ENS which is contract owner of the project)

Rover address
3/ After the payment was sent to Rover was where things started to go poorly.

On multiple occasions Rover agreed he was going to start promoting the project with posts but never did.

1/ It’s 2024 and we are still seeing far too many teams getting SIM swapped or phished on a regular basis resulting in millions stolen.

So here are some tips EVERY team should follow to secure their X (Twitter) account and what to prioritize if an account becomes compromised.

2/ If you are subscribed or want to purchase X Premium you are required to attach a phone number to receive a check mark.

Once you apply for the check mark you can immediately remove the phone number after.

If you do not remove the phone number YOU WILL likely be SIM swapped at some point and the scammer would be able to gain access to your X account.

(US cell carriers are primarily being targeted but have seen Canada/EU as well)Image
3/ Linking a phone number for 2FA is simply not acceptable.

X allows people to add Security Keys or an Authenticator App instead.

I usually tell people to buy Yubico security keys (one primary & one backup) as I have seen instances where people accidentally back their Authenticator App up to the cloud.

Buy directly from their website and not a reseller. Also make sure to write down back up codes in case you ever lose the device.

Keep in mind if you ever deactivate your account 2FA will be removed and will have to be added back.Image
