Where the fuck does all this inside information you have come from? You keep chiming in, for months, how Micon is printing money. Yet, there was a huge breakup a year+ ago where Micon could not get staked for slots.
Not saying you are full of shit, but you sure sound like an impressionable fan boy who reads too many forums.
nice to see you acting like a douche though.
all hail Hydra

Gotta give credit to Micon for finding some stuff that would blow up and being in the right place at the right time with them. Golden Tee blew up a bit but there was really no money there. He scored big with NWP but fucked that up pretty badly. E cigs could blow up one day but unless you are running a shop or a own a company really no money there.
Bitcoins have been big for SWC only because the cashouts for U.S. players is less than desirable but again right place right time for Micon and he deserves credit for that considering all of the shit he has taken of the years. Hopefully he learned from all of his mistakes trying to be a poker professional and holds on to this money. It could potentially set him for a while but if he keeps firing 20k prop bets ya never know what could happen

The other one's he's obviously lost since BFL shipped a bunch of Jalapenos.
Also, it was on his twitter about the welcher, and there's a link to the thread where he was making these bets.
It won't be hard to figure out who's pockets the bitcoins end up in, and I'd be shocked it a good portion of them don't make their way into micon's at one time or another. That's not really something micon could ever hide if the taxman ever decided to take a look-see. Even if he was fucking it up in the very beginning but fixed it almost right away, those first few fuck-ups are recorded into the bitcoin blockchain for eternity.

How do I know micon even has a wallet? Well for one, common sense (he probably has several different wallets for different purposes, I'd think), and two the amount of times that he used to bitch about how long the initial blockchain download took when you were installing the bitcoin wallet software.

I really don't give a shit either way on bitcoins or SWC, I have never participated.
My point is both are an avenue to launder. I get the fact Micon is likely an honest dude. The issue is there are probably users on his site that are not honest to say the least. If there was ever a time to disassociate yourself, probably now it this the time. imo
Hosting has nothing to do with it. This whole .eu extension is laughable if the idea was to throw the DOJ off the trail.
Bottom set is right. If Poker Stars and Full tilt couldn't escape the wraith of the DOJ, you really think Seals with clubs will be able to ? All it takes is someone wanting to make an example of him and the site.
Seals with clubs isnt a big site so it is under the radar. However, you couldnt pay me enough to do what Micon is doing. Maybe he gets away with it and makes a shit load of money. But you would have to be a fool to think that he isnt taking a big risk in doing so.
Micon has to take in USD at some point. So unless he is being paid in gold bars or casino chips there is a trail that leads directly to him. SOMEBODY from seals or associated with Seal has to convert bitcoins to US currency and then bring it to a bank account or convert it into some kind of currency. There will always be a trail if you move bitcoins to USD.
In some ways, the DOJ could look at Seals with Clubs (especially if it blows up) as worse than Poker Stars or FTP. At least these poker sites were dealing in a real currencies backed by governments.

I agree if they want to make an example of him they can. But at the same time some of it could be tough.
In all reality Micon could buy gold or casino chips from bitcoins. There are definitely shady people out there willing to cash you out for the right rake %.
Also amassing 70-100k in a year is nothing. Perhaps i overestimated how broke pfa posters are though in saying Micon is doing better than 95% of them.
