The private team was ready to respond to the allegations, releasing their statement
just a day after the controversy has emerged.
Do not claim any preliminary knowledge of pre-mine, Bitcoin Private
team relations immediately started their own internal research on

he remained firmly convinced that the final holder of these pre-mined funds was not someone
inside the team. The team has published a timeline of events related to

addresses with 1.7-1.8 million illegitimate coins. Our team is favoring

would make the legitimate 20,000 coins disappear, we believe it is so
the alternative is to leave 1.7-1.8 million illegitimate coins
