Monero "BADCACA" tracking project

Monero doesn't work. There is a dozen of known ways to track it.

Did you use Monero yesterday? If so, check the list below, you might be on it.

TLDR: Monero was never a real privacy coin. Multiple problems that Ciphertrace is currently exploiting were reported to Monero project in 2016 and remain unfixed since. To draw attention to the issue I will publish transactions, IP addresses and porn preferences of 100 "lucky" Monero users every day.

I will let needmoney90 (Monero moderator), anonimal (Monero developer) and dsc (Monero developer) introduce me:

Yes, Monero community is full of lovely, lovely people. And that's not even counting neo-Nazis 😒

I have been logging Monero transactions for over a year now. Main reason why I decided to go public are blatant lies that there is nothing to worry about Ciphertrace and that Monero is private. If you are prepared to sit though an 8 hour lecture on how broken Monero is, you will see that even they admit it. However that's obviously a small percentage of people they sell Monero to.

Yes. Most likely they had to because they feared legal repercussions. In any case, if you are prepared to sit through a 5 hour lecture (who isn't, right?) - it is here.

For the same reason why asbestos companies insisted that asbestos is safe, or why big tobacco pumped billions into cool advertising. There is a lot of money to be made, and the top echelons of Monero community stand to make this money. At the end of the day, just like big tobacco, they don't give a damn about the fate of end users. By that time they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Yes, over a year worth of logs and the source code is available for sale. If you have experience in government procurment and want to team up, please contact me on .

I tend to dislike the word "cult". It implies a religious organisation, whereas MMLs and fringe political groups use the same methods of manipluation.

With regards to Monero it is impossible to say if people that wish "my mother was our lord's groupie" or crowning themselves as "easily the most prestigious coin" are genuine, or just stroking egos in hopes of moving up the community ladder. However, Monero community has a lot of cult-like characteristics, including a bottom caste of people that sacrifice their time and money for "magical crypto friendship" (Riccardo Spagni is pretty much mocking them with his podcast series). And of course insider doctrine - Do you want to hear about Monero's Lord and saviour of NASA, Howard Chu?

Do you think Vincent Rijmen exploded with anger when AES was broken? No, he congratulated the authors. You have to ask yourself a question. Are you here because you care about privacy coin ecosystem, or are you here to sell your bag of Monero to a greater fool, no matter the consequences? If you truly care about the whole ecosystem, then surely Monero developers are unwilling or unable to fix 4-year-old problems, then perhaps it is time for Monero to go the way of Old Yeller.

Of course this doesn't explain why you are probably venting your anger on Reddit / Twitter as we speak. This is because you feel personally attacked. Even though I don't know you or even your name. So why do you feel personally attacked? The primary objective of a cult is to replace individual identity with a collective one. You will feel that every attack on the cult is an attack on you, and that the cult exploiting your time and money is for the greater good. Well done. You are a "magical crypto friend" now. Now go and buy Riccardo another $750,000 watch while he makes another shitcoin for suckers like you.
