Never gunna give you up b1!
Blockchain is a very interesting technology, everything you do on the blockchain leaves a permanent trace. I have been investigating accounts related to the b1 account and found out some very interesting things.
The information here will show snippets of output from cleos, but you can follow along using a block explorer of your choice.
The b1 account
There is a special account on EOS which has only 2 letters, it is owned by the key that block one registered on the Ethereum network. The key which is set to both owner and active for the b1 account is as follows:
This can be verified with a block explorer by searching for the b1 account.
Other accounts using that key as a permission
./cleos.sh get accounts EOS5cujNHGMYZZ2tgByyNEUaoPLFhZVmGXbZc9BLJeQkKZFqGYEiQ
Thats interesting... The key holder of the b1 account is also the holder of rickrolledb1
Lets see which keys control that account.
./cleos.sh get account rickrolledb1
owner 1: 1 EOS6ka7tgmPJGEAPnNsxxeSNQUwqLMu44gZhnHY8RtXwPPKGFadak
active 1: 1 EOS5cujNHGMYZZ2tgByyNEUaoPLFhZVmGXbZc9BLJeQkKZFqGYEiQ
The key ending EiQ is the b1 key, but the owner key is:
This is new, lets see which accounts it controls
./cleos.sh get accounts EOS6ka7tgmPJGEAPnNsxxeSNQUwqLMu44gZhnHY8RtXwPPKGFadak
There are 2 new accounts here, all related to the original b1 account in some way
Very interesting site (http://eosinsider.io), claiming to provide inside information about EOS.
The DNS for this is covered by privacy protection so I will leave it there for now.
**eosinsiderio** has another key which has other interesting accounts, I will not delve deeply into them though
./cleos.sh get accounts EOS4zGGN7cE2a6rXTKdDVSacdSjVZsUjWK8yoeWU5SHTSQbfXrWPs
Seems like an interesting account, probably a test for timelocks and/or account recovery. My prediction is that at some point the active key will be circulated publically, Dan (or someone close to B1) are preparing to leave their wallet on the table ;)
This was previously announced here
Their private key has been published and people are invited to steal the tokens.
What I think happened here
The eosinsider account has created the rickrolled account and then assigned b1 as the active key, will block one engage with this account?
