Blockchain Analysis / Spammy Accounts
« on: November 07, 2014, 06:05:08 AM »

I scanned through the blockchain to show spammy entities.

These account names are grouped by the balance id that registered them, and sorted by quantity.

Proceed at your own peril..

The top few are the exchanges learning they shouldn't use accounts this way.....

But the bottom 15 are squatters and fraudsters attempting to capitalize on typos etc.

The top ONE has the following:
hbtc38-btsx-sobo-72722
epoloniexwallet

So it looks like a squatter too, unless one entity owns both..

edit:

And the second balance id includes these:
btercomg, btsercom, bkercom, btercrm, ...
btc38-btsx-sobo-7222, btc38-btsx-sobo-77222,
poloniexwlalet, poloniexallet, polnoiexwallet

Actually, it looks as though these are all squatters...

off topic - What is a "balance id" ?

I didn't realize that all the account names could be linked together ?

Not off topic at all!

A balance id, if I understand correctly, is like an unspent output in Bitcoin.
In BTS, a wallet has multiple accounts. Each account ends up with multiple balance_ids.

With TITAN, transactions between accounts cannot be linked.
But what can be linked is balances. And names that the balances were used to register.

Can confirm ..  at least to my understanding it works that way ..

Note, that bts does NOT have change adresses!
