Rickrolling the FBI thru Bitcoin-Pranking

Nachdem das FBI Silk Road hochgenommen hatte, haben sie natürlich auch das Bitcoin-Vermögen von Ross „Dread Pirate Roberts“ Ulbricht beschlagnahmt. Und da das in Bitcoins vorliegt, braucht das FBI ein Bitcoin-Wallet und Silk Road-User haben nun herausgefunden, wo das liegt, schicken da Mikro-Beträge in Höhe von 0,0000000001BC hin, versehen mit Botschaften an das FBI, wie etwa:

- „Why do we put people who are on drugs in jail? They're sick, they're not criminals. Sick people don't get healed in prison. You see? It makes no sense.“

- „Marijuana: a drug that kills … no one – and let's put it in a time frame – ever. Illegal.“

- „I think it's interesting the two drugs that are legal, alcohol and cigarettes, two drugs that do absolutely nothing for you at all; and the drugs that might open your mind up to realize how badly you're being fucked every day of your life?“

Und, naja, haufenweise Rickrolls: „(Ooh, give you up) (Ooh, give you up) Never gonna give, never gonna give (Give you up) Never gonna give, never gonna give (Give you up)“.

Hier das Wallet mit den beschlagnahmten Bitcoins, Snip von ZDNet:

When online black market Silk Road boss Ross Ulbricht was arrested last week the FBI seized around 26,000 in Bitcoin — now revealed, the FBI's Bitcoin "wallet" address is the target of small bitcoin payments with snarky messages.

At the FBI's Silkroad Seized Coins address, an increasing number of payments to the tune of 0.00000001 BTC are coming in with messages attached as a so-called "public note." The messages now span three pages of snark, anger, defiance, trolling and political spankings. One public note on Blockchain reads: "The only way to have a drug-free world is to have a people-free world. And even then, the animals will get stoned."

Another says: "Prohibition goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. -Abraham Lincoln." A common public note message for the feds is, "You cannot arrest an idea."
