1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Queen_Amber - Libelous Fraud on: October 29, 2017, 04:26:52 PM
What happened:

I was doing my usual browsing of the Altcoin section and I stumbled on a thread which eventually led me to this one started by a BCT member going by Queen_Amber. Fast forward posting it in the group and the dev of the project responding here, my attempts to cajole her (if it is a her) into admitting fault or providing evidence for her claims starting here and we end up here, the reason for this thread (ref link):

Elix is now permenatly on the list. Its a confirmed scam. Elix dev LIED about cleaning up the chat, in fact its WORST then before.
Do NOT invest in elix, it is no better then ebtc, ethd, ect.. My prediction is dev will dump and abandon this project when it reaches its ATH again, judging from the low quality exchage of chats. be very cautious about this project.

No evidence is provided for the bolded claim. Admittedly the chat isn't curated to look like everyone sings kumbaya around a camp fire eating marshmallows like every Telegram group of an ICO'd project I've been in but is has been cleaned up compared to what it was before.

DO NOT INVEST IN ELIX,
1. TERRIBLE community who has said HORRIBLE things about me before i even joined back to check and see the quality of chats, which are the worst ive ever seen in a group.
[-- snip --]
Notice the immature and low quality comments in the ongoing "community support group"

A red carpet wasn't laid for her return to the chat which she was (rightly) banned from. What a surprise.  Roll Eyes

2. Pump and dump oriented, just like all the other "E" coins.. nothing special about ELIX..

No evidence is provided for either claim. There's also this article by the dev which caused quite the argument in the Discord channel by the more day-trader, p&d oriented types.

Quote
3. Dev will dump and abandon project the next time it reaches ATH.. He is currently silently dumping of 10-20 coins at the time so nobody will notice his wallet balance getting smaller, i noticed in under 10 minutes.

This is pure libel. Not only is no evidence provided for this, she managed to go from "ELix is still questionable..I forgot what exactly happened" to such absolute claims immediately after getting banned from the channel again.

This is the link to the token holder chart and I'd love her or anyone else to point to an address doing what she describes and evidence linking it to the dev (and how possibly not her though I doubt she has enough funds to do that).

Elix, CONFIRMED SCAM.

Again, no evidence... other than butthurt perhaps.



The previous mod that banned her should be coming soon to post screenshots of the chat log that got this started in the first place.

Amount Scammed: Not quite sure about the monetary cost of libel to the project but the MCAP of Elixir is currently $1,690,367

PM/Chat Logs:

She was banned and the particularly heated arguments deleted before I noticed but I've managed to piece it back.









Additional Notes: IMHO this behavior is very deserving of negative trust. It might as well have come from this hopefully now banned user. Also, any claims this person makes should be triple checked.
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / What's The Minimum Investment? on: August 20, 2017, 09:33:09 AM
If you're looking to make any sort of profit from cryptocurrency and you're just starting out, what do you think is the minimum starting investment you ought to put into it?

Yes, I know "you should only put in what you're willing to lose" but surely there should be a barest minimum, right?

EDIT: If you don't mind sharing, how much did you start with?
3  Other / Beginners & Help / How To Stop Getting Updates From A Thread In My "Updated Topics" on: July 16, 2017, 11:30:49 AM
Is there a way to stop getting updates about a thread I replied to once upon a time in my "Updated Topics"? I've tried un-watching and un-notifying but neither of those worked and google isn't turning up anything relevant to this forum which is why I'm asking here.

Thanks.
