Ver told CoinDesk he has contacted the culprit, who decided to back down after learning of the arrest bounty.
“An email address and Facebook account I don’t use anymore were hacked, but it started to spread until I told him I’m offering a $20k bounty for his arrest, then he gave up and gave me the password to all the hacked accounts. I’ll post all the details once I finish locking everything down,” Ver said.
