1  Economy / Reputation / Is this the shilling with alt accounts? on: January 31, 2023, 01:39:39 PM
giving false feedback to yourself is something I don't like, but this user seems persistent. I am pretty sure that the same person is behind these accounts, but I would like to get confirmation from other members as well.

User coinpools offer Stripe account monetization service. classically, newbie accounts suddenly appear who are very satisfied with his service. when I was writing him a reply, I noticed that all three "different" users have the same way of writing. Despite the fact that they did not say much, one thing is obvious, leaving a space before the comma.





there are still no proven elements of fraud here, but I am thinking about the negative tagging of these accounts.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bounty hunters, how much you really earned in the last two years? on: December 17, 2022, 10:22:52 AM
I see that there is still a big rush on bounty programs. I wonder if it's worth the effort.
spamming the forum, creating multi accounts, buying merits... is it really worth that much?

as far as I've seen, most of all "projects" are mostly worthless and their tokens most often never reach any value. that's why they're called shitcoins for a reason.
I would like some of the bounty hunters to share their personal experiences and state publicly how much real (tangible) money they managed to earn from participating in these campaigns. Of course, using only one account and following the rules of the campaign.

I am not referring to tokens that have value only in the whitepaper, so only what has been converted or can now be converted into Fiat, Bitcoin or some stablecoin. also, earnings from bitcoin signature campaigns are not the subject of this discussion.
3  Economy / Exchanges / - shutting down. Withdraw your funds on: December 16, 2022, 06:04:47 PM
another exchange is going down in history.
The bear market is starting to take all poorly profitable businesses

Effective December 31, 2022, they will be removing all markets and disabling deposits on the platform
Withdrawals will be available for at least a year, but after March 31, 2023, they may be manually processed. it is probably desirable to make a withdrawal as soon as possible and at the latest end of March 2023.

4  Economy / Exchanges / Crex24 out of business?? on: September 13, 2022, 04:17:13 PM
it seems that another small exchange is going out of business. They were not a particularly important player in the market, although I personally had no special complications with them, I saw a lot of accusations against them.
unfortunately, there is no official announcement, nor is it possible to get any information on the website. they just keep doing business in their shady way.

somewhere I saw that even earlier they banned all users from Europe and the USA, Australia. I am not sure if can anyone access them. I tried but I can't access their website, even if I use a VPN with Asian IP.

On his Twitter and Telegram channels, they publish a list of coins that will be delisted from the platform.

according to the volume displayed on CMC, there is only $240,373.32 or 11 BTC per 24h, while BTC/USDT is only $281.13

I suggest that anyone who might have some funds there, try to get them out of there or forget them forever.
5  Bitcoin / Project Development / - what it should have and how it should look? on: August 24, 2022, 09:59:26 AM
As I get a lot of notifications related to the discussion about the site. I would say that the whole thing (starting with is very important for the bitcoin community. so let me go.
yes, I bought the domain, which was available at this time, and it seems to me that the easiest transition will be from which has an availability problem.

I'm opening this thread to explain future intentions with this domain/site, as well as to collect constructive suggestions for making the final solution.

the current version of the site is not a conceptual solution, now it is more important that the page is not empty and that visitors can still get the information they came for. therefore, I will not bother with any correction of the current state, I will turn to make a completely new one from scratch.
I personally am not on the best of terms with javascript or any of their framework, if I can't solve it myself, I'll probably hire someone to do it. (if there is a member here who is willing to cooperate, I am open to good deals)

For example, I need a few suggestions, I hope I can get them.

as for the design itself, is the initial version of the site really that good, so most similar services copy it?

is it really necessary to have all possible currencies, for example, 170 FIAT and 5k+ cryptocurrencies? Or top 10 or 20 from CMC is enough?

how many sources should be used to calculate the mean value, and what are the relevant sources that must be included?

do you keep a page like this open all the time, to keep track of the current value? which update timer is desirable in that case?

I saw some interesting features like the historical price that were liked by some members. whether such things are necessary? I would say more possibilities mean less simplicity but if there is an add-on that can be very useful, why not?

Of course, any constructive suggestion is welcome.
6  Other / Meta / Bump locked topic, should this be allowed? on: June 14, 2022, 10:14:38 PM
I'm not sure if there has been a similar discussion before, but here I run it now because it's pretty boring and tiring.

it is not uncommon for certain users to open a new topic, write something in it and lock it immediately. in this way, they make it impossible to discuss or express a different opinion, there are no "awkward" questions to be asked. okay, it may not be that tedious, if that's the end of it. what makes things worse is when the same users do a daily bump and then lock up the topic again. that's how they keep on top of the page with their stuff and nonsense.

most often these are some shitty accusations, offers for dubious trades or selling illegal stuff.

The last example is from the user Koil with his threads:

from scam accusations MiLkZ Selling feedback, suchmoon, sandy-is-fine in same scheme protecting him
from reputation MiLkZ Selling feedback, suchmoon, sandy-is-fine in same scheme protecting him

the same user also opened a topic (and lock it immediately) where he offers a cash prize for the personal data of another user. (the administrators seem to have deleted it)

this is just the most recent example, but there is always someone who obsesses over the forum in this way. can we make this somehow impossible?
maybe a locked topic to loses bump power and automatically goes to the second or third page, this would eliminate the purpose of this way of emphasizing topics.
7  Economy / Economics / Donation to Ukrainian people through Airbnb service on: March 11, 2022, 01:36:01 PM
The Ukrainian government has publicly disclosed crypto addresses for donations, I have seen some other organizations that are also working on collecting donations. but in the current state of emergency, how much do these donations really help ordinary people?
a couple of days ago I saw a great action on Airbnb where people are paying for rentals in Ukraina although they do not plan to come and stay. it is just a form of financial aid to residents.
I must say that is a wonderful idea of how to help ordinary people directly.
Also, platform Airbnb, waived their usual fee, so the hosts get the full amount. The Guardian wrote about

I also saw that they planned to implement cryptocurrency payments this (2022) year, maybe this brings them closer to that realization.
8  Other / Meta / freedom of speech is fine, but where is the limit? on: February 27, 2022, 10:20:13 PM
user interiawp is completely exposed, begging for money under the pretext of a donation for the victims of the war in Ukraine. obviously some immature kid.
to all objections that it is necessary to attach some evidence, he negative tagged all of us. I don't see it as a problem, usually, every scammer gives me a negative rating with some nonsense explanation.
but where shall we draw the line? In this case, he is here calling for the kill, no matter how naive and stupid it sounds should we allow such speech here?
freedom of speech is fine, but do we need users like this here?

9  Economy / Exchanges / Tokpie exchange - unethical and blackmailing way of doing business on: December 17, 2021, 02:47:12 PM
I think I understood well, their main business is a cryptocurrency exchange. (I hope this is the right place for this discussion)

Following topic TOKPIE Exchange - scam in scam accusations, they have shown an extremely strange and unethical way of doing business. (This is not about that accusation, nor the dilemma of whether they are a scammer or not).

User CryptorClub paid them for their services listing on CoinGecko, Coinmarketcap and Etherscan. with their basic service, listing on their platforms including bot trading to keep fake daily trading volume.
Sounds legit.

however, they failed to deliver on their promises (Listing on CMC, CG and Etherscan), so the user CryptorClub decide to open a scam accusation topic on this forum. to which they respond by pure blackmail. threatening that they too will launch a negative campaign against his project if the accusation is not dropped.

How blackmailing going in this case:

This message I recently got in Telegram.

and that they did. they opened the charges without any clear evidence of the scam.

Green Exchange is selling fake tokens
Previously they were selling these GREEN tokens:
Don't trust them and their fake exchange.

Also added some warnings on his blog webpage dedicated to this token. although the complete previous advertising text remained. therefore, this was added only because of intimidation and forcing him to withdraw the accusatory topic. (later deleted because the topic of the accusation is expected to be deleted)

therefore, you must not say anything negative about them, because otherwise, they will cancel the service you paid them for regularly!?
*user BTCITA187 represent them here on the forum.

From our side, the work was done and we continue to support your ERC20 token. Moreover, we give you as much time as you need to improve your project web quality to satisfy CG requirements.
But, If you will not close these proceedings in the next 10 days we keep the right to delist you forever because of your bestial attitude to all work that we provided to you.

the same project was not suspicious or a potential scam when they Tokpie suggest adding fake team members due to easier acceptance of CoinGecko.

Apparently, they made a mistake by taking money from a trash project, but it’s amazing what they’re all able to do to keep the same money.
"most of the projects place fake members (2-3 core team members) and it works" ?? How many fake projects he supports and help them to enter the market?
10  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Trezor Suite new update, what is this? on: December 10, 2021, 04:04:36 PM
I just updated my Trezor suite to the latest version 21.12.2 (use it yesterday without any problem), also update the latest 1.10.4 firmware on the device.
after all, I get the message as if my device is already connected to some app. After loading the dashboard in the application, they warn me about the connection to

Someone knows what happened and do I need to be worried about this?

11  Local / Hrvatski (Croatian) / Potrebna pomoc sa Sberbank aplikacija sa Google play on: October 12, 2021, 06:18:22 PM
Pozdrav ljudi
Treba mi mala pomoc ako je izvodljivo.
Prijatelj je otvarao racun u Sberbanci u Zagrebu. Sad je vec otputovao dalje i nije vise na teritoriji Hrvatske.
E sad, problem je sto ne moze da preuzme njihovu aplikaciju iz druge drzave pa samim tim ne moze i da aktivira online banking.
Ima li neko raspolozen da skine njihovu app i uploaduje je negde na meni dostupno mesto, kako bi aktivirali servis u skorije vreme. (Mislim da aktivacijski kodovi imaju vremenski limit, tako bar on kaze)

Link za instalaciju usluge je:

P.s. Namerno sam postavio ovde, kako bi bilo vidljivije, ako tema pripada offtopic sekciji, moderator moze premestiti.

Zahvaljujem unapred.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Trezor One, update 1.10.3 firmware failed (or not) on: September 21, 2021, 08:42:13 PM
When we talk about the last Trezor updates, I do an update of Suite software and also device firmware update to version 1.10.3
But when update firmware, in the end, I got the message that is the update failed. After restart both, device and Trezor suite I can see that is new update is still installed. the same happened during the previous firmware installation (I am doing updates on a regular basis).
Anyway, everything works fine. I didn't have the slightest problem using it

someone had a similar experience and should I be concerned for some future updates?
13  Economy / Scam Accusations / [SCAM] - scam investment on: July 20, 2021, 09:46:26 PM
Usually, I add sites like this to a bunch on [SCAM ALERT] List 470+ scam websites (Updated 12.July '21) but this today was something different.
One person contact me through Facebook chat a few months ago, we talked few times, nothing was important until now. He/she offered to give me suggestions for excellent opportunities for investment. It's about

although I wanted to end the discussion ASAP, because I'm sure it's a scam, he/she insist to convince me otherwise.

First, he/she says to raise profits together with a partner for 13-15 months. It's weird, the domain is old just five months.

On the website, I did not find anything about the company, registration, licence... So I got something about them, WP with a lot of plagiarism and stock images.

Also, check their page "about us" on the website. 100% plagiarised

When I ask to give me his Bitcoin address so I can check all transactions to prove that he/she really get money from there, I got only fake screenshots. (BTC address is something personally)

I wasn't lazy, so I manually entered the bitcoin address from this "email" in explorer
There are only two transactions In 0.00259049 BTC 19.Feb. and out 0.00259049 BTC 10.March.

I was removed his/her name from screenshots because the FB account sounds real, and it seems to me that it is someone naive who believed in this scam invested and is now trying to get his money back through the affiliate. These two transactions are most likely actually their first wrong step, investment in - scam.

14  Economy / Scam Accusations / [SCAM ALERT] Bitcoin generator - on: May 05, 2021, 05:05:49 PM
What happened:: Bitcoin generator -
Reference Link:
Amount Scammed: N/A
Payment Method: Bitcoin
Additional Notes:

I find this ad on one previously trusted website. it is a well-known scheme of fraud. Visitor can get some Bitcoins (up to 2.5BTC) but after the script on the website finishing with something, they ask for a small deposit to cover the fee (0.000982 BTC). of course all this is false.
Unfortunately, deposit address 1PnebLVTnG7Jibe8pcG4n3M3cDuDYQ53Hn which I get from there received two payments for that (the same amount 2x 0.000982)
So, obviously, two people are scammed from there.

I searched a bit, is there any review about this website and I find just a few "anti-scam" websites, which does not say anything concrete about this case. Only generic review, "it can be a scam but we are not sure". They were more concerned with the correctness of the code itself and whether there is any malicious code inside.

domain is just a month old, so it still young.

the influx of new accounts is noticeable who's talk about how they got a return of 50% of the captured funds on livecoin exchange.

the current owner of domain and using 301 redirects trying to boosts rankings of his second domain. In this case, it's
Using an expired (in this case hacked) domain is the well-known SEO technique that will bring 100% traffic and SEO rank to the new website. No matter what happened with livecoin, are they scam or not, his domain has some authority, a lot of created backlinks and even if this service is dead, there is still significant traffic to that address.

Apparently, the one who manages that domain now uses it for this purpose. He creates several new accounts here and states something quite different, using the current problem with robbered funds. but without setting up direct links.
this has nothing to do with recovering funds from livecoin, it's only an indirect way of promoting another website.

For example

I followed the instructions and I confirm I have received 50% of my assets in USDT ERC-20 2 days ago to myetherwallet address:

Hi. I have received 50% of my funds from Livecoin. I followed the instruction and look forward to receiving the rest

I followed the instructions of livecoin and received 50% of my assets.
Thank you!

Adress: 0xc0f8b21164f12072af95ce671b01a903e06344f4
TxID: 0x6ae5d5ac56ae2fd1ee08619c49f7e911e4bdf8e1cd7e166eef7b50f9f3db01cd

Just received half of the money I had on Livecoin by following their instruction.

Transaction Hash:

Hi, just to inform that has paid me the 50% of the amount that i have on his platform and they will transfer the balance after my posts!!

mods probably can delete all of these fake posts.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / whether such oscillations are normal? on: March 09, 2021, 10:30:40 PM
One rig, 6x RX 580 8GB, running on HiveOS and on Sparkpool. GPU clock is 1145/2100 850uV, card temperature is from 46° up to 57°.
All cards working on 30.9MH/s
I mostly monitor over Sparkpool android app, occasionally I see a really big difference in the current mining hash. It's going from 100mh/s up to 300mh/s.
For example:
RealTime 240.00MH/s
24h Avg 184.96MH/s
Reported 185.45MH/s
Reported 24h Avg 185.40MH/s

whether this is normal? Or I need to adjust overclock better?
Here is how the graph looking on the Sparkpool app.

17  Economy / Reputation / Chipmixer campaign by the constant pressure of the hypocrite? on: March 09, 2021, 02:06:12 PM
we often see pressure on this campaign and on the manager of them. Now is actually, why there are no participants from Russia and Turkey.

I am wondering, whether all other campaigns have been checked and whether there are members from Russia and Turkey in all of them?
When other campaigns will be checked for racism? If not, why only ChipMixer?
whether all other languages are represented in this campaign and whether it is racism if only Russian and Turkey members complain about this fact?

Is this a proper answer to all doubt here?

Not only Ratimov.
taikuri13 was removed too. taikuri13 wrote a lot in the Russian locale. Now they stopped paying him and in the Russians had almost nothing to read.

So, without Chipmixer campaign payments, Russians had nothing to read. This section going to die without these paid posts?!  Huh

User Ratimov is removed from the CM campaign. I don't know why and it's not my problem but obviously, the purpose of this attack on Ratimov is to be removed from the CM campaign. Thread is locked right after DarkStar_ removed them from the campaign. (IDK is it the reason why he is removed from there)

many of the whistleblowers called the bearers of the CM signature "sponsored by drug dealers, terrorist, paedophiles etc..."
if such an opinion is about ChipMixer business, why you try to be a part of it, and why you want them on your local board?

I saw this, but I saw no apology by those who accuse him

I generally don't comment publicly on why someone was removed, but I had my own (different) reasons for removing both of them. There will be a Russian replacement soon.

that this is not an isolated case by a single user ~DefaultTrust, here is another example of hypocrisy

A two months ago, there was a chase on this campaign and manager because of the high payment rate?!  Huh
After the consolidation of payment per post, even if this campaign is still with the highest rate, there were objections again.
For example, why no one complains about the low payment rate campaign as Bitvest or 777coin? To be clear, I haven't anything against them, but why there no pressure on them to increase payouts and raise the quality of participants?
ChipMixer is guilty because they lowered the rate down from $27 to $6, and some others are ok with a $0.3 per post. What I missed here?

in the end, it's all about money or potential earnings when participating in this campaign, right?
18  Economy / Scam Accusations / [Warning] - do we have another exit scam? on: March 01, 2021, 01:53:00 PM
What happened:: A lot of non-properly scam accusations against unregistered suspicious exchange service

Scammers Profile Link: TillKoeln
Reference Link: (self-moderated ANN thread)

Additional Notes:

created an FLAG;flag=2652

Update 23.03
Important: Last data input from 13 Mar 2021

Unnamed has a reported 24h volume of $0.00 with an Estimated Real Volume of $0.00 It is a Centralized Exchange that offers 0 currencies and has a 0.00% Confidence Score based on our Algorithms.

This is not scam accusations yet but something wrong happened here. Here are many complaints about stucked transactions, the impossibility of withdrawing. To all this, the admin does not respond or give any update on whats happened there.
User TillKoeln is behind this service, last time active here 21 February 2021, but much earlier he began to ignore all complaints related to this exchange office. Last what he did is talking about bunnycoin on Twitter. SO he is active in the time of all accusations. but still, he did not solve the problems.

Also, most of the complaints are about the problem with Doge withdraw. its users wanted to take advantage of the big Doge hype and sell it on high, but this is not possible if they store DOge on this exchange. *I know another red marked scam exchange where is no Dogechain implemented although they have trading pairs with that coin.

The last pages on his ANN thread are also full of complaints on captured assets. Complaints coming from several different accounts. It can be organised FUD against them but I take this with a great deal of reserve.

I remember this exchange, or whatever it is from 2+ years ago. Tillkoeln confirms that operates as a private service. There is no registered company behind, no valid license.

All I questioned were two important things:

First, why is there no detail in the terms and conditions listed on the website which clearly state who owns the website/exchange and make it clear which legal jurisdiction or country any court case will take place in, in the event a user wants to sue or in the event the owners scam their users. I mean, it is not acceptable for the owners to hide behind anonymity while keeping options open to force users to send KYC/ID citing AML laws.

its simple as it is, .. it isnt yet decided where we wanna register one day.
and atleast for my german authotity  its like  trading a chcken against a fish ..
or  some homemade shoes vs some gloves.      i dont want, and will not
in the future bring fiat /  real world money into the game.  
it is just a crypto currency exchange.    

and yeah.  answer on your question.  ...  its still young, and  not yet old enough
to go these step.     but aggain. thanks for your information.

At this moment, they had some defenders which are so happy because his favourite shitcoin is listed somewhere, no matter is it ghost exchange, running from someone's bedroom, without any background. I find some plagiarism on his TOS page:

Also, there is one more wrong step from you. I am checked your TOS page and what I find

54% Plagiarised, I am checked only first 600 words

When we talking about plagiarism, he used the signature design of Yobit, changing the inside links only.

@JollyGood good pointed here, TillKoeln participated in Cryptotalk signature campaign. Although it runs its own exchange, yet he participated in the campaign to earn some dollars. I guess they run exchange with zero budget.

TillKoeln - spam/burstposting 1 liner trash

Surprising to see this.

For a user claiming to be the owner/operator of an exchange, why on earth would anybody in that position sign up to the cryptotalk signature campaign instead of spreading the word for their own exchange? I always thought there was something not right about that exchange.

It is important for users to know who to take to court and who to serve litigation documents if/when any scamming takes place so until they add contact and ownership details on their website, I would advise all to stay well away from this exchange and all others like it that hide behind anonymity and secrecy themselves but can ask users for KYC under the guise of AML laws when they like.

I never use this exchange, so I can't give a final touch about his functionality but invite all victims to join here in further discussion and to present all evidence.
if I understood correctly he is from Germany he said so himself, reporting to the authorities makes sense here, scammer needs to be busted.
