Larry turned on Gary and the newly unsealed indictment & USA’s Motion Supporting Detention
Cane v Abel is Gary v Larry —brothers that are cut from the same cloth but Gary is the winner of who’s the dumber brother…
Trust me on this - you’ll want to reread this previous article because unbeknownst to me Federal Law Enforcement had arrested Larry’s brother Gary Harmon in late July 2021. Defendant Harmon
Brief Gary Harmon Biography
Gary has since locked his Twitter Account @garmon2525 <—I could have sworn that I had archived this Twitter account in Feb or March of 2020 but I’m coming up empty on the various Internet Archiving websites. Whereas Gary’s LinkedIn Profile (also archived in the event LinkedIn or Law Enforcement take his down) Harmon’s resume reads in part:
‘Frontend Web Developer Coin Ninja LLC — from Nov 2017 to Feb 2020
Leveraged websockets to create a real-time price ticker to drive return traffic and increase user engagement with the site. Integrated with BTC-Average’s API to show historical price charts with ChartsJS. Maintained Internal Block Explorer front-end with new React feature development.
Created a web interface to decode raw transactions and submit them to the mempool in order to be mined and added to the blockchain, removing the company’s technical reliance on third-party vendors.
Defined & maintained various API endpoints used by the mobile wallets allowing them to sync wallet state and scan for new transactions
Developed news syndication API to create a curated content feed for both mobile and web consumption.
Admin Portal - SpyGlass
Created a React Bitcoin wallet interface to enable QA team to validate that the address book of a given test wallet followed the correct derivation path, transaction ledger produced correctly from the blockchain, and that encryption keys were properly generated.
Defendant Gary Harmon’s resume doesn’t comport with how previous Bitcoin News outlets, several “reported” Gary as some coding whiz kid because I am fairly confident that is not at all accurate. Whereas Defendant Larry Harmon certainly appears to possess some (albeit) limited coding skills. Not to belabor the point: Gary was not the “genius” behind Coin Ninja, and later it’s API. My educated guess is that was predominately Larry not Gary
If you review Defendant Gary Harmon’s Facebook Page/Profile -specifically the pictures & albums have a three curious uploads. Especially the last three pictures Defendant Gary Harmon posted …
As you’ll soon learn — in the Defendant Gary Harmon Indictment, prosecutors alleged that Gary was in two of his brother’s hearings. And the subtext is between the testimony proffered by an IRS-IC Agent and the arguments presented by USA to the Court, the derivative assertion is Gary Harmon used information proffered at each hearing to impermissibly steal Bitcoins from his brother, Larry. Moreover if you look closely, Gary Harmon posted this picture (technically it’s two pictures) less than 12 days after your brother and the Government informed the Court that one of the seized devices was locked.
In the race of “which brother is the most intelligent” —I’d say (for now) it’s Larry Harmon. Whereas Defendant Gary Harmon used social media to “check in to Washington DC” —Which culminate in one brother purloining over $5+M from another brother. Bless your heart. Can you imagine what the Holiday meals are like in the Harmon Home(s)
Gary Harmon’s Indictment
-charging Defendant Gary Harmon with eight counts of Money Laundering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(1)(B)(i); Obstruction of an Official Proceeding, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2); and Removal of Property To Prevent Seizure, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2232(a) —the Obstruction applies to Defendant Gary Harmon who remotely accessed a drive, created various new wallets. Simply put he stole hundreds of BitCoins from his brother…
While largely reiterative of Larry Harmon’s indictment— his brother Gary was indictment separately See DDC-ECF
The subtext of Gary Harmon’s indictment it is born from items seized by Federal Investigators used a blockchain analysis which helped them identify 16 Bitcoin wallets… Gary Harmon was indicted for “remotely accessing and absconding with approximately 712.6 BTC from the SUBJECT WALLETS” — On February 10, 2020 whenLarry Harmon was arrested at his Akron, OH home —a TREZOR ONE device was magnetically in place under the table in which Defendant Larry Harmon was sitting in at the time law enforcement was executing a judicially authorized search warrant.
Once agents recovered the TREZOR ONE device, it required a password or a “seed password” to allow the hidden cryptocurrency wallets to become visible. The TREVOR ONE device has two primary ways to access the device; 1) physically place the device into a computer and enter a password, or 2) remote access the device with a “seed password” —importantly here are the various hidden wallets.
As you’ll note in Gary Harmon’s indictment the Government proffered that during Larry Harmon’s hearings (of which there were two, 1) in OH and 2) in DC —Gary Harmon was present for both hearings. This is important because at the 1st hearing the Government disclosed to the Court that it had seized a device which they were unable to open and a few months later during a hearing on March 13, 2020 which was held in the District of Columbia — Gary was also present and heard that pursuant to Larry Harmon’s conditions of release he was not authorized to move any of the bitcoins absent prior approval from the Government and the Court…
As you’ll note on pages 5 and 6 of Gary Harmon’s indictment—the Government alleges that in April 2020 (after Larry Harmon was ordered release) Gary used his brother Larry’s credentials to log into the TREVOR ONE device. From April 19 thru 24, 2020 Gary Harmon purportedly created new wallets and then transfer 712.603 BTC with a value of $5,397,083.98
The point here is Gary Harmon actually caused Larry Harmon damage. Meaning that Gary Harmon was unaware the Government could see him moving the Bitcoins and then creating additional hidden wallets. At the time the Government moved for an Emergency Hearing. The DC Court then ordered Larry Harmon to provide the Government, specifically the US Marshal Service with his login credentials…remember my Cain and Abel analogy well here’s where it becomes super relevant. Because of Gary’s unlawful actions his brother Larry bore the brunt of the Government’s and the Court’s ire…I now refer you to pages 7 and 8 of Gary Harmon’s Indictment
Because Gary Harmon was not authorized to access the TREVOR ONE device nor was he authorized to move the Bitcoins subject to Forfeiture —this action is why he was indicted on Obstruction charges. Because the Bitcoins in question were subject to forfeiture as it related to his brother Larry Harmon’s criminal case. Hence my Cain and Abel reference.
Memorandum in Support of Pretrial Detention Defendant Gary Harmon filed by USA
On August 24, 2021 the Government filed Memorandum in Support of Pretrial Detention Defendant Gary Harmon -see DDC-ECF —the subtext here is the Government believes that Gary Harmon’s presence in both of his brother Larry’s hearing - Gary was able to glean certain information that enabled him to unlawfully access the TREVOR ONE device…m
Brother on Brother
During the hearing, IRS-CI Special Agent Jeremiah Haynie testified that agents had recovered a spreadsheet from a search of Larry Harmon’s Google Drive account, last edited October 18, 2018, purporting to show an accounting by Larry Harmon of bitcoin and other assets valued at $56,939,610.00…executing the search warrant for the Market Street premises, he had found and seized a concealed Trezor device..
Federal agents executing the search warrants also discovered the defendant, Gary Harmon, was residing in an apartment directly across from the suite where Larry Harmon was found. Gary Harmon told agents that he was Larry Harmon’s brother and worked for Larry Harmon’s company, Coin Ninja. Gary Harmon told agents that he was not familiar with Helix.
This is SUPER IMPORTANT
On page 5 of the Government’s filing this is the relevant section that affirms Gary Harmon’s presence at his bother’s hearings —using information proffered by Federal Agents —Gary apparently hatched an audacious plan to get rich quick…
When asked by the government attorney, “Are there in fact tens of millions of dollars that have not yet been seized in this investigation,” Special Agent Haynie confirmed, “Yes.”…defense counsel informed the Court that Larry Harmon had the ability to “unlock those devices.”
…IRS-CI monitored the 16 SUBJECT WALLETS containing approximately 4,877 BTC traceable to Helix for any indication funds were being moved. Between February 6, 2020 and April 18, 2020, there was no such movement of funds. However, beginning on or about April 19, 2020 and continuing through on or about April 24, 2020, IRS-CI observed a series of eight bitcoin transactions from the 16 SUBJECT WALLETS into new bitcoin wallets previously unknown to law enforcement. In total, the transfers totaled approximately 712.6003 BTC, with an approximate value of $5,397,083.98 as of April 25, 2020 from the SUBJECT WALLETS into eight new wallets…
Gary’s Greed also screwed his brother Larry
Because the Government was monitoring the Bitcoin Wallets, Gary actually unwittingly helped the Government discover previously unknown/identified wallets. I mean you kind of have to laugh at the audacity and silver lining that Gary unwittingly helped investigators…
Federal agents confirmed that TREZOR ONE contained all 16 SUBJECT WALLETS. Federal agents successfully recovered approximately 4,168.98163 BTC from wallets stored on TREZOR ONE, which BTC was then transferred to the U.S. Marshals Service. Federal agents were also able to view transaction history for TREZOR ONE and confirm that eight of the SUBJECT WALLETS had been emptied out as a result of the defendant’s transactions.
Google Drive and Wasabi Wallet & ChipMixer.com it’s party time for the big roller…
Defendant Gary Harmon was employed by his brother Defendant Larry Harmon. Gary was paid appropriately $45K per year but after Larry was arrested his brother Gary no longer received payment as an employee of Coin Ninja — so what’s a broke AF brother to do? Well Gary filed for unemployment benefits and the State of Ohio paid him (from April 13, 2020 and November 18, 2020) received a total of $23,436.00 in unemployment benefits and $2,400 from the US Treasury via the “economic stimulus” program…
July 15, 2020, federal agents from FBI and IRS-CI conducted a voluntary interview of the defendant in Akron, Ohio. Agents advised the defendant that he was suspected of transferring approximately 712 BTC owned by Larry Harmon… The defendant denied moving the bitcoin, stating: “if I took it, why wouldn’t I take it all?”
August 18, 2020, federal agents monitoring the public blockchain began observing numerous small transfers of bitcoin out of the eight NEW WALLETS and into two different bitcoin mixers, Wasabi Wallet and ChipMixer.com
…defendant began making thousands of dollars in unexplained cash deposits into his bank account…
Defendant Gary Harmon also paid cash for a 2018 Audi and then use about 63 bitcoins as collateral for a partial $1.2M loan for the purchase of a luxury condo in a high rise…how dumb is Gary? I’m going with 10 out of 10 on the deep stupid Richter scale. What an absolute stupid donkey…
January 12, 2021, the defendant deposited a $52,000 check with the notation “Crypto” in the memo line, further supporting the conclusion that he was selling bitcoin in exchange for U.S. dollars. The defendant used the proceeds of the “Crypto” check to purchase a 2018 Audi S5 luxury automobile…
Between February 5, 2021 and February 8, 2021, the defendant deposited 26.55 BTC into his account, valued at approximately $983,000 at the time of the transactions. On February 12, 2021, the defendant used the majority of his BTC deposits to purchase 16,079,260.6675007 in Dogecoin, an alternative cryptocurrency…Approximately 65.95 BTC was used as “loan collateral” for a loan to the defendant in the amount of $1,200,000. The defendant used a portion of the $1,200,000 loan proceeds to purchase a luxury condominium unit in Cleveland…
Boobs, Booze and Private Jets
You know the level of self restraint I’m currently exercising because well I could have been far raunchier but alas my self censoring is well far more productive
Preliminary examination of the defendant’s cellular phone, recovered pursuant to a search warrant, show that he spent bitcoin extravagantly at nightclubs, and that he used TapJets, a private charter jet company that accepts bitcoin as payment.

Exhibit B https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/doc1/04518726343 - Transcript of March 2020 Larry Harmon hearing. - note pages 3-5 where the Court asks about family members access to the Trevor One device. And that during the March 2020 hearing Defendant Gary Harmon was present in the Court’s gallery… or you can pull down Exhibit B via my Scibd Link
So I’m going to say it again - Cane is Larry and Abel is Gary but I’d actually argue that the roles are reversed. Meaning Gary tried hard to stick it to Larry and they are both cut from the same cloth. And one really has to wonder if Larry Harmon’s 5K1 letter might have been in jeopardy because his greedy brother Gary was intoxicated by “getting rich quick” by stealing from Larry. Although I’m not eager to fully give Larry a pass but then again I’m not an attorney.
I’m just reading the Court tea leavesband have followed this case rather intensely since it’s inception and every prediction I’ve made has been accurate because duh I understand the subtext of the various Court filings. Also to my stalkers and trolls remember that time you said I was wrong about Helix and Larry Harmon - yes those were super fun times…this case was one that created new precedence concerning BitCoin. Because not only can I back up what I said in February 2020 I noted that Larry Dean Harmon was a case you should pay attention to and HERE WE ARE…exactly where some of us in 2020 predicted we’d be…so I say this with zero respect intended👇🏻
IN YOUR FACE(s) LOSERS…get a real J-O-B
Frankly I’m kind of glad I’m not on Twitter because I’d likely be super obnoxious and rage tweet to the QANON-for-the-Left that they were wrong and then I’d probably tweet something super obnoxious like “you need to STFU with your anti-Semitic, anti-Asian, Anti-Biden, eight ways to f__cked up insane conspiracy tweets —never held any security clearance whatsoever - shameless charlatan and grifter” so yes it’s a good thing I’m not on Twitter. Because no one likes an obnoxious PITA…
