FBI Investigates Bitcoin Developer Event Linked to Dashjr's Hack

In response to a subpoena, Mike Schmidt provided details of participants at a Bitcoin developer event linked to the investigation of Luke Dashjr’s Bitcoin theft.

As revealed in a social media post by Schmidt, the co-founder of Brink received the subpoena from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that required him to submit personal information of attendees from the October 2022 CoreDev Atlanta event.

FBI Demands Mike Schimdt’s Cooperation

According to Schmidt, the FBI sent him the subpoena to seek his cooperation a year ago. Since there was a non-disclosure order, Schmidt could only post about the investigation once the order expired.

“Some of you were invited to the event and attended all of the days, and some of you stopped by for some period of time as guests,” said Schmidt.

Mike Schmidt complied with an FBI subpoena to provide information on attendees at a developer event, as part of the investigation into the theft of Luke Dashjr’s Bitcoins.

“The original subpoena requested much information,” explained Schmidt, “but after pushback, the FBI agent agreed to the following subset of information about you.”

In addition to the full names of the event attendees, Schmidt also provided their GitHub usernames and email addresses “as a part of the investigation into Luke Dashjr’s announced theft of his bitcoins.”

“I do not have any details about the investigation or whether the subpoena was due to a targeted suspect or general information gathering as part of the investigation,” said Schmidt.

With the screenshot of the email sent included in the post, Schmidt also pinpointed the irony of this incident, saying, “The guy who wants to tell you how to use Bitcoin couldn’t even secure his own Bitcoin and, as a consequence, got everyone at a conference he attended doxxed by the FBI.”

“Good job, Luke!” he said.
