On STEEM, EOS or BITSHARES? have crypto? Human Trafficking Included. This is on VOICE as well. The developers are helping terrorists human traffic. WARNING

Self proclaimed community watchdogs are actually hacking and stalking people.

This group https://goldvoice.club/steem/@fyrstikken. They are hacking people that enter this discord server https://discordapp.com/invite/sqxV63P . Once you are hacked they profile you long enough to know all of your activities. They introduce workplace gangstalking visits and bring it to your attention cleverly and discretely so only you get it. They are very covert and tricky with everything they say and do in this server. Some claim to have worked for or are working with the FBI and the NSA. Mixed with decommissioned traders and coding criminals, Its a scary mix of creepy people and their intent is to drive you crazy and deplete everything you have ever acquired in life, even your freedom.

My hacking started with them introducing ransomware that has options, dump my coin or delete my system drive. They acknowledged this to me in the server as it happened. I've been following this group since before it was on discord. I joined when it was on teamspeak.

This hacking and stalking is done so they can manipulate the target to pump and dump for them. Threatening and Making victims wear head phones, so nobody in your household can hear thier dramatization towards you. In 2017 this server was side marked as a drama show for entertainment purposes only as an excuse to say whatever they want all the way down to killing a politician. They have a server side command called "hey asshole" making a prompt come up instructing everyone to wear headphones. They want everyone wearing headphones so nobody in your vicinity can hear them mess with you. Fystikken says its because of "mic feedback" but once your a target you get exactly why they make everyone wear headphones.

With headphones on they subliminally direct victims with very low suggestive whispers mixed into their radio shows music. Combine this with them being able to manipulate their own individual outputs sound volume, which they control on the server side, they can pick what individual people hear at any given time. They decide who you hear on the server and change the volume controls for them. They can make some really low or off for those trying to investigate. They control who hears what and know who is who.

This team will find absolutely everything they can about you prior to using their suggestive and threatening program. They Introduce pictures that mean something only to the target, inducing paranoia while they watch and listen thru all of your circumvented devices. They are very aware of what makes you tick. They know your work schedule and use it for work stalking along side of this. I received multiple threatening letters to my work and home addressed to my screen name from this group.

Fyrstikken tells people they are drafted like they did with Facebook at the beginning. He says Facebook was started by forced labor and V2K controlled slaves, just like he creates with his gang for steem and crypto. "Get to work bitch" he tells people once circumvented and intimidated.

Human trafficking is worse than drugs. Steemit censors important content that will expose them. Look at steemit.com/@gangstalking

What a wonderful contest from one of my favorite Steem apps @steemitworldmap! Which has inspired / motivated me to write my first post in almost 3 months. Not on our Steem blockchain as much as I used to be, I am a little late seeing this. Sure glad the deadline was set the way it was. And appreciative of the thought behind this contest to get 2020 off to a great start! 😊


Not a gamer and nor much interested in anything related to it, your application represents what is possible on our Steem blockchain, with its awesome supplementary features. It is to me a very successful example of what "can be" with some creativity and hard work. Here's one Steemian wishing you "new heights" in your achievements for the New Year! 👍

My 4 beloved postS from 2019 in a new mix.

I had so much fun reviewing all the posts


10.01.2020 07:07

Phew! Just squeezed my entry in now! Let me know if I need to do anything else - think I followed the instructions - I used steempeak to write the post and copied the steemitworldmap link in but will pop it here in case!

Thanks for reminding me to relive last year's trip to Aus & NZ :)


11.01.2020 18:31

Hey! this is my entry! :)
I try to add a location of my post to the map but I can't... :(
