Lack of funds holds up png investigation into Bitcoin

“There is a reason that the FBI’s investigation of Bitcoins has been stalled – it is largely because the FBI has no funds to investigate it – and even though the FBI seems to be holding off funding the investigation, it is now beginning the process of requesting funds, because it seems that at this point the Bitcoin community cannot support the investigation,” he wrote on July 9th, 2014.

“In addition, Bitcoin continues to be seen by some as an experimental technology which needs to have more research, more testing,룰렛 more testing for the government to see how well it works. There is a sense that the FBI is afraid to invest in the technology or it will not prove itself.”

The email has now been archived at Pastebin, and this is where it appears to be written:

Hey Nick, We don’t want to see you guys lose all your money, even if we have to wait 8 months (I am afraid that’s what happened!) but don’t worry we’ve got the funding you’ve said you need so get ready for a little less Bitcoin in the near future, and of course it wouldn’t be a big deal if we were able to bring the investigation to a close and shut down any further activity. Cheers,

Dan

This email was sent out just 10 days after Wikileaks published a leaked email chain purportedly showing that the FBI was considering seeking an injunction against the Bitcoin network.

If the existence of the email chain could be proven correct, it would appear the FBI is preparing to seek additional funding for its investigation into Bitcoins – if they were able to.

This is not the first time Wikileaks has sent out emails that seem to be in support of the existence of Bitcoins.

On January 29, 2013, Wikileaks leaked a file titled ‘Bitcoin and the future of currency’ to the internet and the contents quickly spread around the internet, and some Bitcoin enthusiasts thought the contents of this file had some sort of significance.

However, after some time, this story was quickly서산출장안마 debunked, as a post by the “excellent” journalist Roger Dingledine explained how it all had nothing to do with the alleged existence of Bitcoins.

In a short post published on HackerNews, Dingledine explained how the authenticity of the WikiLeaks email had been faked.
