    Devfee miners - made by anonymous developers Since the era of Claymore, the most prominent, "imperialists of mining", developers of miners were always anonymous, covered their tracks well and never exposed any private part of their life. This is completely contra-intuitive, because if you have a successful legal business, you want to make it official, so you get "clean" money, you can buy houses, cars, yachts and so on. The only reason to make anonymous business is when doing illegal business - which coding and earning with mining software is NOT. One of the reasons why business would like to stay anonymous is tax evasion. But considering amount of money developers make - we are talking millions yearly. Claymore was making up to 100 million yearly in his golden times. It is completely impractical to do tax evasion for such huge amounts, because money laundering brings you too much hassle plus it is illegal and you are risking a lot for just several million more of cash. And if you are getting eg 50 million yearly you probably don't go underground doing money laundering to get out 40 million instead of 35 million (with taxes fully paid). So, forward thinking... what would be another possible reason to stay anonymous when earning millions? What if your business is created on shoulders of someone else and you would have ti give a large portion of your income to someone else? Licenses! I suspect that all anonymous developers of miners are violating GNU GPL v3 ( which is a license that requires you to open (show code) your product on request. Developers would lose their devfee in this case, so this is something they simply cannot do. This is the only logical conclusion that I have been able to think of. If they made their business legal, they could have fought AntiVirus companies that are massively blocking miner software thus increasing their reach and profit; they would've been fully trusted in the community, they would've been listed among top Crypto companies. But all of them decide NOT to do this. Only developer of lolminer dares to expose himself - because he made his own miner code base and did not violate GPL. Now you know most likely why these developers are anonymous.
