This guy has some good (and more-detail-than-you-ever-wanted-to-know) deep-dives on Craig: 

WizSec has some good older analysis of the MtGox hack, and summarizes some info on 1Feex at 

Because Craig has a tendency to replace facts and evidence with volume, there's even a whole 
community of people dedicated to tracking all the nonsense and piecing together the history of the 
fraud at https://www.reddit.com/r/bsv/ though I don't generally recommend reading it unless you want 
to feel sad about the state of humanity.
