The feds might've been clever enough to take down a shadowy internet drug ring, but it still hasn't mastered the email BCC: CoinDesk reports a list of people and companies interested in the US Marshals seized, $18 million Bitcoin auction is now out in the open.
The slip-up occurred just like it always does when someone fucks up a simple reply-all: "In a statement to CoinDesk, Lynzey Donahue, a U.S. Marshals spokeswoman, indicated that the emailer had intended to send all the recipients an attached informational document and to blind copy all those it intended to contact."
Oh well, here are the highlights of the 40-person thread, according to CoinDesk:
- Daniel Folkinshteyn, assistant professor at Rowan University
- Barry Silbert, CEO for SecondMarket
- Luther Lowe, director of public policy for Yelp
- Malcolm Oluwasanmi, chairperson of Little Phoenix Investment Group
- Fabrice Evangelista, quantitative arbitrage at BNP Paribas
- Michal Handerhanm, co-founder and COO of Bitcoin Shop
- Dave Goel, managing general partner of Matrix Capital Management
- Dinuka Samarasinghe, investment professional
- Chris DeMuth Jr., Wrangeley Capital
- Fred Ehrsam, co-founder, Coinbase
- Jonathan Disner, corporate counsel at DRW Trading Group
- William Brindise, head investment manager at DigitalBTC
- Michael Moro, director at SecondMarket
- Jennifer R. Jacoby, lawyer at WilmerHale
- Sam Lee, co-founder, Bitcoins Reserve
- Shem Booth-Spain, artist and musician
- Avarus Corporation
I am shocked to see nary a single Winklevoss on the list, but it could be incomplete. Or maybe they're not so liquid these days after that triplex.
