The only way it could get even more interesting (though probably unlikely) is if the same people behind Bitfinex and Tether (who are indeed the same people - Tether offered a Line of Credit to Tether, and the same two people signed the documents for both sides - wasn't that another of their lies, that they had no relation to each other??), are also behind Crypto Capital?

Wouldn't it be surprising if the same people weren't behind Crypto Capital? Like, if you were going to embezzle your own exchange with vaguely plausible deniability, how would you do it differently from exactly as done here?

I'm curious who these Merlin and Oz fellows are, does anyone know more about them?

That whole exchange is beyond belief.

> U there?

(3 weeks later)

< Sorry, was afk... we are working on this hard. Will let u know soon.

It’s like an Upworker chat log, asking when the bug fix will be done. But for Eight Hundred Million Dollars.

This may be 100% unrelated/wrong:

Check out "OZ49 Corporation". It has some shared directors with some other Panama crypto companies, and a director name Oz:


Here's a video that seems to be the same guy mentioned in the link you shared: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iXBwQMls0o

If this is the guy, there's quite a goddamn rabbit hole. He owns some companies registered in Panama with MEYR ABIZIZ (Authorized Movers https://opencorporates.com/companies/pa/571706). A quick search turned up these reports of Authorized Movers being a scam: https://www.movingscam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21169

I'm no expert, and it's not clear if this is the right Oz Yosef, but it would be amazing if someone who knew what they were doing could untangle all of this.

I think there's 2+ Oz Yosefs. The one you linked to doesn't seem to have overlap with crypto/finance, just basic IT stuff.

Under the OZ49 Corporation's directors (as linked above), you see one of them, and IVAN MANUEL MOLINA LEE, a director of Crypto Capital Corp.

This graphcommons link is down (error 404). I had a peek at it yesterday when it was up and it seemed to contain interesting information I haven't seen elsewhere. Can you provide a reference for this data?

It's back up.
