TRON obstructs legitimate attempts by people that tried to claim the $1 million twitter hack bounty that the company announced right after Twitter hack happened, as we are reading the latest TRON news.
There’s more to TRON’s bounty on the Twitter hackers than the company ever wants to discuss. One anonymous source asked to be put in touch with TRON in order to collect the $1 million bounty for identifying the people that hacked the social media platform. However, it was surprising how TRON obstructs the attempts of people to gather the bounty as the platform representatives made every excuse possible to avoid the sources that came forwards with information about the hack.
The Twitter hack was about a crypto scam that lured victims on the premise that whatever amount you put in, they will send you a wallet where you will be able to double them. When the Twitter profiles of celebrities and crypto prominent figures emerged tweeting about the scheme, the money started rolling in. TRON’s $1 million bounties didn’t make any sense as the scam collected just shy of 13 BTC but the perpetrators compromised the accounts of former presidents and companies in the process.
TRON representatives declined to learn any new information from the sources and this behavior seems in line with the company trying to get out of the public promise. The representatives said they will create an email address where people can send all their information but this feels casual once there is a $1 million bounty in-game. In the meantime, the details of the hack were starting to come in light in other places. The New York Times published a deep analysis of how the hack worked and how possibly was behind it. Tron could have known anything that the New York Times did if they engaged in some common sense cooperation and followed on through their bounty.
The company also stated that an FBI investigation was underway back in San Francisco and suggested that this was the reason to not receive information about the hack. It’s not clear how TRON intended to honor the bounty without the proper tips line and while ignoring credible information that claimed to want and need. The source said:
“That’s ridiculous. I offer help, they don’t want it unless it was through [Cointelegraph], I tell you pretty much how everything happened and you vouch for me, and they straight-up ignore me.”
