    Think about it, why would anyone identify themselves as blackhat?

    Many white hats started as black hats when they were wee.

    Eventually, most people figure out white hat pays better and carries less downside risk—at least in western countries.

    In eastern europe you might see a different story. I’d be curious to see research on that.

    In North Korea, essentially 100% of hackers are black hat, at least from the perspective of anyone who isn’t North Korean.

    I’d say some “researchers” because many of those people aren’t actually professionals.

    I drank some jolt cola in the 90s. Does that count?
