Let's hope they have enough information to follow through and find him.
If so, best outcome by far.

Well, the rollback is cancelled. Dunno if it's good or bad coz I wanted to see what share of the stake would decide to rollback the changes. Taking into account that only small part of the nodes upgraded to 1.2.5b I can guess that only a small part agreed to play this game. But still...

Well, I started running 1.2.5b and then changed my mind and started running 1.2.5 again.  If that's not decentralized thinking, I don't know what is.

I think it's likely many nodes didn't know about the forking/rollback-possibility, or they didn't know how to start forging on the fork (download a file, switch to testnet etc).

Nice experiment. Hey, why not play another game, maybe a new release with another quirk?

No rollback: good. If we did, tomorrow's headline would read, "Nxt community sells out concept of decentralization for $1.75 Million."

I get the feeling this might be some sort of inside job, Bter just realized it was one of their guys and they now feel confident then can resolve it.

Now the best thing that could happen is if the hacker gets arrested because of his ip address etc, and the money returned to Bter and then their customers.
Or maybe the hacker strikes a deal with that guy offering to buy the loot at a price higher than Bter offered, and the new megawhale acts responsibly and doesn't dump the NXT.
Or the loot gets dumped and many new whales buy in and wait till price rises again...

Damelon, VanBreuk, CfB....

I suppose you have been in contact with Bter all day, Can you confirm that they are speaking "certainity" and not a sort of bluff that will become in a even worse outcome?

Thanks!

I think the hacker responds after the 740 something confirmations have passed.

He still wants more BTC, I am sure of that, a hacker is the ultimatum of GREED.

he will come back for more BTC! and dumping NXT is not the way to go ;)

Yeah, but kLee didn't have the luxury of a rollback option, so he had no choice but to go after the hacker as soon as he could.
