Roger Ver - BCash serving a 10-month prison sentence for illegally selling explosives, well (fireworks) which are clearly not a IED or C4 explosives, I personally think this conviction was a very harsh punishment.
Nicehash -CTO Skorjanec was previously found guilty on charges of distributing the malware in 2010. He served four years and ten months in Slovenian prison for the offense and looked very guilty when nice hash was hacked.
Justin Sun - The fraudulent competition, where participants had to follow Justin Sun and retweet the original post , was part of Sun’s plan to give away a US $20m airdrop among 88 winning participants, in addition to a top prize of a Tesla for one lucky winner. It now seems that the prizes, and maybe even the winners, were never real in the first place. Fraudulent behaviour against the community and the winner of the Tesla for reviews likes, comment and retweets for financial gain.
Craig Wright - Bitcoin SV (BSV aka Bitcoin Scam Version). Lies, deception and document fraud, the list is endless with this guy.
The list is endless. Always do your own investment research and just because someone as been investigated or convicted in the past does not always mean there intention is to scam you. Bottom line, don’t always be so quick to judge a book by its cover and do you own research, be your own judge and don’t be mislead by other people’s comments.
