Collusion Between Blockstream, r/Bitcoin? Recent ‘Bot Wars’ Raise Suspicions

A ‘bot attack’ hit popular Reddit forums r/Bitcoin and r/BTC in recent days, with several users’ accounts being suspended after being compromised. However, citizen sleuths say there’s reason to believe the attacks were a false flag operation.

Rachael Melby is a December 2016 graduate of Bethany Lutheran College, and has set her sights on a career in law.
