Police in South Australia break into a suspected drug greenhouse but find only crypto mining gear; now the owner is considering setting up a lawsuit

In Adelaide, South Australia, police have broken into a private property, believing it to be a drug greenhouse. However, all they found was crypto mining equipment. The owner of the house, Rob Butvila, arrived home on Monday to find the gate and the doors of his house broken.

Oops, a mistake has been made

The ‘greenhouse’ the police had been looking for proved to be a set of mining gear with a powerful ventilation mechanism.

On the calling card the police left, it says, “We called today, but could not find anyone present”.

The owner even posted a video shot with a smartphone, showing the damage made to the house and saying that when he attempted to call the local police station, they just hung up on him, thus refusing to even discuss the damage. He uploaded the video on Facebook and YouTube. On the latter, it has gotten over 8,000 views.

His Facebook post goes:

“I TURN UP TO MY PROPERTY TO PREPARE IT FOR RENT, TO FIND YOU HAVE KICKED MY DOOR IN, CUT MY LOCKS AND THEN YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND HANG UP ON ME!!!!! FOR WHAT, BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT A COMPUTER WAS A GROW ROOM OR SOMETHING???!

you could have just looked in the window instead of causing damage!”

No offence, mate, we were just doing our job

Rob Butvila says he talked to one of the police officers who admitted that he and other policemen had broken into the house, but claiming the place remained just as secured as when they came in.

Still, Butvila insists that the police did not even bother to lock the doors, and now a hard drive has gone missing along with the security camera cable. That, in his opinion, would be at least $1,000 worth of damage to compensate.

As per the man, the police became suspicious of his house when they saw solar panels on the roof and heard fans working, even though other houses in the neighbourhood had the same gear on them visible from the outside.

The police say that they always do their best to minimize the damage done during search operations on warrants, and they never warn anyone about it. A note was left for the owner to contact the police if questions arise.

Presently, Butvila is considering filing charges based on what has happened.

Tron (TRX) Posts New Block Height Best with Justin Sun Advocating for Mainstream Adoption

Published

on

Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron (TRX), has been a very powerful force in the crypto marketlately. He has been leading a movement to push crypto forward and to reach mainstream adoption. In order to make this happen, he is making several upgrades on the Tron network that will lead the company into becoming a better product and to have partnerships with several other companies.

In fact, the Tron Foundation is set to help the world to finally reach the so-called Web 4.0, which is said to be the future of the internet. The company has two strong competitors, though, EOS and Ethereum (ETH), which are all competing for the place as the main king of the decentralized platforms together with Bitcoin (which is more focused on crypto transactions).

Now, Justin Sun has used social media in order to tell the community that Tron has reached a new block height and that the company has exceeded 8.6 million blocks. The number was reached using TronScan, a tool that helps users to determine the block height on the Tron network.

Sun affirmed that Tron is keeping up with its efforts to create a more decentralized internet. According to him, Tron is an important road to reach major mainstream adoption, which will be important both for the token and for the world as well, as it needs companies which are focused on using the blockchain to solve problems.

Tron has just recently jumped from the block height 8 million to 8,614,366 now. In only 20 days, the token was able to mine over 600 thousand blocks. This means that the network is increasing its size very quickly and that Tron is finally seeing some well-deserved adoption around the world. At the moment, the network also has 2.6 million accounts and 1193 online nodes.

Not everybody was so impressed with Tron, though. Some crypto enthusiasts on social media complained that the internet is effectively a single network and that it simply cannot be decentralized because of that, so he said that Tron should strive for a more decentralized notion that the Web 4.0.

In any case, what is clear to us is that Tron is faring very well this year and that the company has plenty of chances of consolidating its presence in the future.

Published

on

On Tuesday, April 23, the founder of the Tron Foundation wrote on Twitter that Tron has received an official invitation from Liverpool Football Club (LFC) regarding an official partnership.

Justin Sun has again made the community feel intrigued.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

To his announcement on Twitter, Justin Sun has attached a promo video by LFC where the logos of the two future partners are shown together.

This could mean anything, but Justin Sun has refused to provide any details so far, promising to do that later on.

As per Sun, the invitation to make a partnership was initiated by the football club, not Tron. Still, he sounds enthusiastic and, judging by the comment thread, seems to make the Tron community feel the same.

Many are left bewildered by what is going to happen between these two giants of such different global industries.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

A prominent Tron supporter, Misha Lederman, has assumed that the multi hundred million audience of LFC could be a great addition to the current user base of BitTorrent and Tron.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

Tron community tries to find out the nuances

Justin Sun got snowed under with questions, the main theme of which was ‘is that really true?!’

Many expressed their doubts, though, or started to make proposals of partnering with Tron as well.

Crypto and the global football industry

Last time the global community of crypto enthusiasts had an excuse to get connected with football was the global championship that took place in Russia last year.

Back then, many hotels and hostels in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities accepted Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for room booking and other services. Crypto was accepted in numerous pubs and even taxi drivers took it from foreign customers.
