Project to recover identity of bitcoin users. Scanning web pages for bitcoin addresses, identifying them with people, and also scanning bitcoin transactions to try to reverse engineer which bitcoin address belongs to which person.
Why do it?
The IRS and CRA are gonna develop this inhouse sooner or later. If we do it first, we make money by getting IRS and CRA to pay us for the service, as well as, we will provide a way for Bitcoin users to check how clean are their bitcoins. We will charge BTC to use this service, so we will force CRA and IRS to buy bitcoin as well.
I propose to implement the scanning and analyzing in Ruby or Perl.
Someone who is a good programmer, with time on your hands. Looking to do this in 1 man-month.
The code will not be open-source, and will be hosted on our server.
What do you think?
