Has The Bitcoin Mining Company That Bought A Critical Site Improved Search Results?
The Butterfly Labs scam is an important event in Bitcoin mining. Here are the details right from Evan, the CEO.
What Happened To Buttcoin.Org?
It isn’t something to be criticized in case you are not aware of Buttcoin.org, a Bitcoin site that has been critical of both the endlessly optimistic spirit of the Bitcoin community which is more important of the broken hardware users having recovered from so-called Bitcoin mining providers. Butterfly Labs was one company that was decided to turn the double frown upside down to speak and purchased the site outright in an anonymous sale. What then is the result? The search for butterfly labs scam returns a link from Buttcoin excoriating the hardware based on user reports with a story with the headline the $ 22,484Butterfily Labs Mini Rig Bitcoin miners are the best Bitcoin mining machine.
According to Evan former owner of Buttcoin preferring not to reveal this last name said he doesn’t want to go specific into the terms of the sale due to some language in the contract that’s tricky but was a hair into the 5 figure range with nothing to change anything about the life or anything. They may eventually be enough to fix some stuff around the house. The site came as a PR4, with decent traffic for a blog of that type, but would have been dumb to not take the offer and having bought and sold the website and knowing this was an overvalued offer, since following bitcoiners for so long they knew most of these guys transacting that made zero financial sense it didn’t seem too unbelievable.
Regarding a post Evan made on Reddit, a user named Jeff approached him about the site making an offer while he was returning to school and needed little cash agreed thereby he was thinking he might be able to update the site and also help with posting. Instead, the user Jeff made changes and essentially locked down the site and Evan suspects the buyer was Jeff Ownby VP of marketing for Butterfly Labs.
How Did Butterfly Labs Shoot Down Buttcoin.org?
Evan continues that he was tricked into selling Buttcoin.org to BFL with no longer access to the site so they’ve set up camp on the subreddit instead so that he can shitpost about bitcoins still. This in a way was even though he never owned any as he still cashed out because of Bitcoin. Quite jarring were the changes that Butterfly made with the result for butterfly labs scam in Google as an example changed from the $ 22,484 butterfly Labs Mini Rig bitcoin miner as a huge broken unstable piece of shit to the $ 22,484 Butterfly Labs Rig Bitcoin miner which is a sexy Bitcoin mining machine.
Here another example appears in the original and updated version where the text of the post is essentially unchanged with the florid last line being removed as also another post read Butterfly Labs demo is just hot air, now titled butterfly Labs demo is hot and is now quite positive.
Improving its reputation by opening its wallet by a company is nothing new as they never really seen such an egregious effort to whitewash a site as the sad tale to be sure is that Evan is now facing claims that he is a Butterfly Labs shill and the company itself can’t be doing very well in SEO buying and paying for the positive press raising the ire of Bitcoin community. As it comes that fooling some people all of the time is usually good business practice, but they suspect they’ll eventually fail to fool anyone. Butterfly Labs has not yet responded to a request for comment but is to update accordingly if he hears from them.
While not being concerned for his part, Evan says that it is hilarious with so many scams and hacks and thefts this was the only way it could have gone down, where someone buying the site and honoring the agreement there is no way in hell that it would happen if it's related to Bitcoin as it had just to be some sort of gotcha at the end. As those bitcoiners on Reddit are trying to use it against him as if he is some sort of shill with reputation being damaged running a website with a giant butt on the logo, how much worse can his reputation get?
The Final Words From Evan
He continues that his site would probably be one of the oldest repositories of Bitcoin news in the world although it doesn’t matter much as placing the impact on the world somewhere between the printing press and maybe the Capri Sun pouch. By all mean it was a bummer but it’s not his anymore as they’re free to do as they please if they knew it was Butterfly Labs though it would have been better that they bought the site and shut it down rather than change the underlined message. What about his legacy? What will his children think?
