BTER’s 50M NXT Theft: Hacker’s Conversation

In August 2014 BTER.com was robbed of 51 million NXT. Those Nxters who wished to ‘roll back’ the blockchain were offered an alternative version of NRS which reorganized the blocks and removed the transactions tainted by the theft. Many Nxters were holding NXT on bter.com but after some reflection, only a few Nxters adopted the alternative NRS.

From the blockchain:

NXT-5MY6-45DG-U8LC-DSSNE NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 God is watching. Do the right thing because you will have your day of judgement, whether it be in this life or the next.

NXT-T78M-TKL6-TQQQ-GTSYN NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 Canyou please state what your objective is? To bribe for a ransom? Totake bter down? To damage the Nxt network? What is your motive and what do you want? I am serious about this bounty. These are people lives that are being ruined by losing their investments. Please consider the offer and open communication so we can make the Nxt users whole and you can walk away with liquid bitcoins that you can actually spend.

NXT-T78M-TKL6-TQQQ-GTSYN NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 I am looking to negotiate the return of the stolen 45 million Nxt for a bounty of BTC. We need to discuss the terms of this negotiation.

15/08/2014 17:15


NXT-QT7P-HWS6-SABB-G59H8 NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 Please send the NXT back. Make good on your agreement. You have won. You have proven that Bter sucks at security. Don’t take down a community with them. We have been working hard for months to bring NXT up. For some of us, it is our life’s work. Please take that into consideration – it’s not just about you, but a couple thousand other people.

15/08/2014 16:48


NXT-9274-C3TC-MHPN-6QB5U NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 hi. bter paid you all 100btc. Please send back stolen nxt. I agree it is bter’s fail. You made great work to show that bter is not better choice. I think you will make right decision. best regards Admin http://vk.com/cryptonxt have a nice weekend

15/08/2014 15:49


NXT-T2UG-SA9F-TMSA-94RVT NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 return the nxt. not worth it. you can keep the 100btc from bter.

15/08/2014 15:16


NXT-UNDA-EHYP-ES2G-D7CRS NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 Your plan is not to hold NXT or BTER to Ransom. Your total plan is to force the rollback as you do not lose as you got BTC now. And you know by doing the Rollback NXT will drop so to you it makes no difference. Your not just a simple hacker are you? You target NXT only when you could get any of the other coins at the same time in bter there is most probably more BTC than NXT? I think this is nie master plan to take NXT out of the picture for good in big swoop. I would like the Hacker and BTER to add me on Skype: Something really does not match up in all this. But i see a very easy solution to screw the hacker into the ground and making him 46 million NXT useless. I have suggestion for BTER if they so wish to hear it on solving this matter SKYPE le-grande1

15/08/2014 14:36


NXT-LSC3-VB9T-2W3V-BH7FB NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 We have already done our part. Send the rest NXT back for the community and it will be over. Make life easier for both you and others.

15/08/2014 13:49


NXT-QF9S-ABNV-VLJ9-98ZPQ NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 Let me present myself. I am a professional investor. I own several million NXT, one of them being on this account. I also own thousands of bitcoins, plus large sums in dollars, stocks, and physical gold. I am announcing here that if for some reason you guys (BTER, the small fish trying to buy the NXT from you, and yourself) screw the deal, then I will have to step up personnally. This can hurt NXT a lot, a make me lose over $1M of NXT investments, but I can assure you that if this happens, I will personnally make sure you end up in jail. And will spend whatever money you end up costing me to track you down for this specific purpose. So, to all: Stop panicking. Let’s do thing clear and cut. Do your part of the deal, negociate with BTER. End of story. Thanks for reading. And think.

15/08/2014 13:44


NXT-WA6A-L7CR-WSYN-64FZQ NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 I’ll be online all day long restless awaiting for you. I’m also setting something up that as soon as you contact me I’ll get back to you immediately even if I’m asleep. Please consider my business opportunity. Sell me at least 10m and sell the rest to bter, this way everybody wins for example. Of course you’re also free to sell me all 46m which I would find much better. Please get back at me even if you didn’t like my deal. I wouldn’t like to raise the price due to the huge risk but we can negotiate. Have a wonderful day!

15/08/2014 13:09


NXT-LSC3-VB9T-2W3V-BH7FB NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 All BTC sent. Do as you promised .

NXT-QT7P-HWS6-SABB-G59H8 NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 There’s a lot of talk about a rollback. You’re going to lose that NXT in any case. I suggest sending it back to BTER. Who knows – they may pay you for finding the vulnerability, and then you at least get something!

15/08/2014 10:43


NXT-F9YV-VFNJ-X534-7J66B NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 Hi, I’m just a observer (Had no deposits on Bter) and wanted to inform you that Forger are going to do a rollback. Could you please send the NXT send back and keep 5M for yourself? This incident will hurt Nxt’s image extremely so your NXT won’t be worth anything, if you don’t send them back. No exchange will accept deposits from your account. So please be smart, send them back and keep 5M for yourself. Prevent with that a rollback and help building Nxt for a new, decentralized future. If you used you abilities to do so instead of hacking, you could help to make THE decentralized crypto in the future. Your NXT’s will be worth millions. But if you don’t relent it will probably kill Nxt. Please do something good, not evil. Please resuscitate the faith in humanity. kind regards.

15/08/2014 10:36


NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4 NXT-LSC3-VB9T-2W3V-BH7FB We can trade these NXT for some bitcoins to make life easier for you, and me.
