The title could be: "The Search for Richard Heart: Crypto Founder Accused of Illegal Securities Scheme Remains Elusive

atedly tweeted about Hex and its potential for success, seemingly unfazed by the legal proceedings against him.

The United States government's ongoing search for Richard Heart, the controversial crypto founder accused of orchestrating an illegal securities scheme, has hit a roadblock. Despite charging Heart with violating securities laws several months ago, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been unable to serve him with the necessary legal documents to begin the proceedings. In a recent filing, the SEC admitted that its attempts to serve Heart through the Finnish Ministry of Justice, where it believes he resides, have failed over the last three months. While the SEC did not clarify the exact reason for this failure, it is likely due to the challenge of locating Heart rather than a lack of cooperation from the Finnish government.

Richard Heart, also known as Richard Schueler, has long been secretive about his whereabouts. Even when he was featured prominently in a documentary about his cryptocurrency, Hex, earlier this year, he took great care to conceal his home's location. Interviews were conducted in an undisclosed underground bunker, the whereabouts of which were also kept secret. This level of secrecy has made it difficult for the American government to locate and serve Heart, leading to the current impasse in the legal proceedings against him.

Interestingly, despite the ongoing search for him, Heart has been active on social media. In the six days since the SEC admitted its inability to find him, he has tweeted 31 times. Surprisingly, Heart has not once mentioned his location or acknowledged the fact that the American government is actively searching for him. Instead, his tweets have focused on promoting Hex and discussing its potential for success. This seemingly unfazed attitude suggests that Heart is undeterred by the legal challenges he is currently facing.

While the SEC's inability to locate and serve Richard Heart is a significant setback in their pursuit of justice, it is important to remember that this is just the first step in the legal process. The government's determination to hold Heart accountable for his alleged securities violations is evident, and it is likely that they will continue their efforts to locate and serve him. As the case unfolds, it remains to be seen how this ongoing search for Richard Heart will impact the outcome of the legal proceedings against him.
