According to NLTimes, a local businessman known as Tjeerd H. was attacked last February and robbers tried to steal his bitcoin. Almost a year later, Tjeerd H. and his family remained in hiding. Tjeerd H. stated in the video that they were "threatened by death several times in the past". Tjeerd H. is the owner of the now closed Bitcoin trading company TravelFlex. It is understood that many people are looking for him and believe that they should be responsible for the losses they have suffered. Investors and former employees called the company a scam, millions of euros of funds disappeared, the company's promises were not fulfilled, and former employees were still waiting to be paid. Tjeerd H. strongly denied the allegations. It is unclear whether the attack on Tjeerd H. was related to his company.
