According to the screenshots of transaction record posted in the weibo, the villain first transfers 1,259,581.3 BTM at the block height of 4888134 at 9:19:18, Jan 11, 2018 (Beijing Time) and then 1.6332 ETH at the block height of 4888166 at 9:28:30, Jan 11, 2018 to the address 0x25e828ff4607011d1c28d649d5b4034dcf8b9383.

Bitcoiners, bitcoin whales, exchanges! Please help! Find out the villain!
REALLY URGENT! ONE BITCOIN for whoever find out the villain! @ a number of Big Vs (user with 500,000 followers) including 8btc news, BTM, Charles Xue Manzi, Chang Jia, Chandler Guo.
This soon draws attention in the crypto community in China, with 100+ comments and reposted for hundreds times, some heart-warming bitcoiners are glad to be the bitcoin Sherlock Holmes to offer help.
Some questioned: “How can this happen? Private key leak?”
–reply: Private key kept in my mobile phone and computer has been stolen. Totally have no idea how the villain made it!
“It finally went into some exchange where real-name authentication is needed, ease, can find out who did it.”
“Collect all the evidence and report to the police. This address is still active and in transaction.”
Currently, BTM is priced at around 2.16 CNY on gate.io, that is, the stolen BTM is worth more than two and half million CNY.
And the last address has been confirmed to be registered on Bter, but he cannot get in touch with Bter at press time.
Anyway, keep your private key well. Do not e-store it which are vulnerable to theft, instead copy it on a physical paper and keep it well.
