One of my friends shared the story of Hamza Bendellajd on her facebook. I couldn’t find a whole lot of stuff anywhere about him. Probably because he stole FOUR HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS and donated it all to charities in Africa and Palestine. 

The Algerian computer science graduate was able to hack over  $400 million from 217 banks. When arrested, he refused to make a deal with the government explaining how he was able to do such a thing. He told the authorities  “Money and power are nothing if they are not used to build a better world”. For this, he was hanged in Thailand on March 4, 2016.


Hamza Bendellajd was the very definition of “chaotic good”.
