Alex Hirschi, a well-known social media entertainer could have just opened a big ole can of worms this week after she revealed a high-profile bitcoin wallet on Twitter.
Why is this so important? Well, this ain’t no standard crypto wallet.
Got the time?
It is actually a very limited edition BTC watch designed by the luxury Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller.
The Twitter thread (seen below) and one eagle-eyed Reddit poster found that this beautiful rose-gold version of the watch is in fact linked to a well-known Mt. Gox wallet.
So even though cryptocurrency scams are unfortunately very common in the space today, the Mt. Gox scandal is possibly the milestone (if you can call it that) by which most other scams and hacks in the industry are based off.

The CEO of the now-defunct bitcoin platform, Mark Karpeles admitted in 2014 that hackers had made off with approximately 850,000 of its customers’ bitcoins. That scandal continues on to this day with new reports coming out on the matter and its former head every few months or so. It also sparks up the controversy in light of this latest revelation.
As previously reported by CryptoDaily, it was addressed to all Mt. Gox users earlier this year with the following message:
“The creditors who objected to your self-approved rehabilitation claim withdrew their objections. As a result, the approval of your self-approved rehabilitation claim has become effective, and you no longer need to file an application for claim assessment.”
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
