1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Barwizi - dev of NRS / NRB / NoirGroup / Project X Outed as a SCAMMER on: September 22, 2014, 09:34:56 PM
The scam section is buried and useless...everyone deserves to be made aware of this.

It has been proven that Barwizi, dev of NRS / NRB / NoirGroup / Project X has scammed BTC from NoirGroup.

2  Economy / Scam Accusations / [ANN] [SCAM Warning] BARWIZI - NRS/NRB/NoirGroup/Project X on: September 19, 2014, 10:50:03 PM
There are many questions that have still gone unanswered by Barwizi regarding the NoirGroup general fund.  He has now created a self-moderated thread and locked the previous thread to avoid answering any questions.  It is now time to bust things wide open as Barwizi has profited significantly from the missing premine and NoirGroup funds.

I previously was a member of NoirGroup and fully believe NG was started by Barwizi in order to scam the public by creating NoirGroup unknown to myself and other members of the team (who have also stopped working with the group since).

Here is some information and questions for Barwizi that he refuses to answer:


My post from July 2: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=565623.msg7642275#msg7642275

"I've made all the points I have to make on this matter so this is going to be my last post here.

I do not believe that NRS or NoirGroup was created with the intent of being a scam, however, I do believe that Barwizi feels he is entitled to the funds that are missing and there is no reporting.  There have been MANY discussions asking for reporting and I never saw any, as the CFO indicated, he has not either.  During my time with the group I did not see any evidence of any board members doing anything under the radar besides Barwizi as I have documented previously.

I can assure you he'll come back with a list of "expenses" from the 250k premine (240k after 10k in giveaways), however, I highly doubt he will provide any PROOF anyone received the NRS (transaction ID's are NOT proof).  The 84k NRS that were used to buy into the General Fund should also be accounted for.  If they bought general fund shares, the general fund should have possession of them, right?

Will the tracking going forward be accurate?  Probably...at this point the CFO should have control over 100% of the funds (besides the 2th/s of miners being used for "expenses).  
Will additional coins be released?  Probably...not too hard to continue to clone...
Will the General Fund make their investment back?  Doubtful...it won't come from the mining and honestly Barwizi does not even understand what a true "DAC" is...
Will you see real proof the premine was spent for the good of NRS?  Not a chance in hell.

At this point PLEASE stop sending me messages asking me for more information, I've said all I have to say on the matter.  

It's obvious Barwizi cannot be trusted and I HIGHLY SUGGEST that the NoirGroup General Fund VOTE TO REMOVE BARWIZI AS CEO OF NOIRGROUP.

Goodbye."

Barwizi has been promising accounting of the premine and group funds for months and these has still been no information provided.

There are also funds missing from the 5th/s mining operation that have not been accounted for.  These miners and funds belong to NoirGroup, not Barwizi.

"Dearest Barwizi,

Here is the address for the eligius account where the miners were previously pointed prior to being moved so the CFO had access to the funds: http://eligius.st/~wizkid057/newstats/userstats.php/1Nf7PswAM87DWXfRLWxVVTjb8BYK3qfQuS

You can all see 8.82 BTC were mined on this account.

It did NOT go to miner fees, because that's where 2th/s is pointed to pay for those as you've stated previously.  

2-3 BTC were used for noirpool.com.  


WHERE DID THE ADDITIONAL 5-6 BTC FROM MINING GO?  PLEASE SHOW US TRANSACTIONS.  THIS BTC BELONGS TO THE GENERAL FUND!!


Thank you.

P.S. - DO NOT try to tell us the CFO will answer this as he did NOT have control over the wallets at that time.  YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE."


Here is a chat log where Barwizi admits to dumping the premine:  http://pastebin.com/kyvSsHa3
"Just how long do you think it took to sell it?" -Barwizi

And don't forget to take a look through the old NoirGroup thread!  It's some great comedy!  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=565623.msg7605585#msg7605585

There is enough evidence against Barwizi and many unanswered questions regarding NoirGroup financials.  I highly urge you to do your research before getting involved with Barwizi or any NoirGroup/NoirShares projects.

I URGE NOIRGROUP AND BARWIZI TO PROVE ME WRONG AND PROVIDE ACCOUNTING FOR THE GROUP.




When I learned of the GF fund, I purposely did not invest, because I knew what it represented.  It was not definitive about what was going to happen and my investments were scarce enough that I didn't want to blindly take the plunge on a hope and a prayer.

Well some GF investors did exactly that, they simply got excited and threw their money into the pot hoping that while everyone else was doing it, it might yield something.

Now listen how stupid they sound, I quote:

We wait, we wait, we wait. We are still waiting. How long? A day? A week? A month? A year? At least you could have done something to compensate for the long waiting.

Long waiting?  Are you kidding me? NRS was announced around Feb 2014. It is still in its first year of development.  Most new businesses lose money the first year or two of start up.

....
These GF holders and other NRS investors have no idea that instead of seeing the yields and corrections they want, they are actually the exact same people that might be hurting their own investment, maybe even permanently by doing this..


Thanks for pointing out that my investment in the GF was a risky one, a risk you were not willing to take.
Maybe you can also see that making the mining option possible (mining at least 16 or maybe much more BTC), we have made possible the infrastructure you are having profit from now. The money from the mining option must be somewhere in the organisation, God knows where, but we, GF did not profit.
Personally I don't really care about the BTC I have put inside. Like I have said before, I have found a good investment that has brought me much more profit then this will ever give me.
What I am angry about is the way things are portrayed. If you can do some reading, you can also read that Barwizi, accidentally or purposely, has not been clear about the role of the GF holders in this new chain. If he would manage well, he would have given us SOMETHING in order to keep us a bit satisfied.
Promises were not kept time and time again.
Promise: GF holders will profit from the BTC mining done by the machines bought.
Fact: I have seen maybe 150 NRS, but no accounting has been done for the mining up till today, while the mining is already done there for 5 or 6 months. I am waiting for the accounting
Promise: GF holders will profit from the mining pool, and get the fees.
Fact: Never saw a dime from that, the project was killed after one or two weeks. I am waiting for this to come online again, because it has never been formally canceled.
Promise: GF holders will profit from the new lottochain
Fact: There will not be a lotto chain, instead it is planned to be implemented in a merge of NoirShares and Noirbits and the code is far from finished, and if this goes the way of the other two promises above, this will never happen. But ok I am waiting for this promise to become true.
Promise: There will be accounting for the mining operation and the premine.
Fact: This is still not done, after 3 months. But of course, I am waiting for the accounting, could be today, could be next year, but who cares, it is only the bitcoins that was mined with my money.

And of course I understand how hard it is to code, and how difficult creating something can be. But taking into account what has happened in the 7 months existence of NoirShares things in NRS go about 4 times slower than in other coins! But of course, I can give the developer a little credit and am waiting for the outcome.
And accusing the GF holders that they are devalueing their own share by standing up for their rights might sound like a legitimate statement, but in fact you are telling me to keep my mouth shut while things are not going like they should. Really, I have been biting my tongue more than you know, I have not said even half of what I want to say, just because I keep in mind it could devalue the share. I really have been waiting for things to improve, but from my viewpoint, the position of the GF holders is not improving, it is diminishing. I am still waiting to vote for a lot of decisions that have been made on our behalf without consulting us.

For the record: I did not get any offers for my share yet  Wink Come and buy! Rewards will be big! Don't wait! Dive in!
Oh BTW I could not wait until after the weekend to react on this posting, sorry.

edit: I want to state that things said in my reactions are my own point of view and in no way represent the point of view of the other GF holders. Although I am very curious what their point of view is. I added this because of this:

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Petition to Remove The_Catman as CENT Dev on: January 10, 2014, 06:37:21 PM
We need a new dev to take over CENT.  What say you??

The_Catman has royally jacked up the coin and does not know how to proceed.  There are already multiple forks, wallets not syncing, etc.

Are these the responses of a confident developer?


I'm not sure why people are getting stuck at 50623, my chain's currently at 242690 and reports that there are currently 243036 blocks  in the chain.

I will look into this further.


Alright, I need sleep, I'll continue trying to fix the problem tomorrow.

In the meantime, if anyone happens to be an expert on the proof of stake system, please take a look and see if you have any ideas. There's got to be a stake validation check somewhere I'm missing somewhere. The problem is that the new stake value is being used to check the old stake transactions and it obviously failing. On re-examination the method we used to change it was pretty obviously not going to work, but the other methods I've tried (using block nTime and nHeight, in various ways) don't seem to be working either.

To everyone having Pennies issues after Jan. 8th: Debug instructions

1. Open "Command Line Banking" and type 'getinfo'
 - Make sure protocolversion is 7000 (version 0.10.0.0-beta)
 - If not, go update to v0.10.0.0

2. Open "Command Line Banking" and type 'checkwallet'
 - Make sure it responds {"wallet check passed" : true}
 - If not, run 'repairwallet' and wait.

3. If your blockchain is stuck/not syncing
 - Check your pennies.conf and wipe any nodes you aren't sure about
- Add 'node.cryptsy.com' Woops, seems cryptsy may have missed the update, hold off on that*
 - Save and restart wallet

4. If it's still stuck
 - Shut down wallet
 - Go into your pennies appdata (%APPDATA%\Pennies)
 - Delete all files other than 'pennies.conf' and 'wallet.dat'
 - Relaunch wallet
 - Wait for it to resync the chain from scratch

If none of this works, just wait a few days for the network to sort itself out, then open an issue on the github.

Alright, from what i'm seeing there's one of 3 problems going on at the moment.

1. Cryptsy is outdated and everyone who is reporting successful transactions is too.
2. There's a fork.
3. Uhhh, I forgot what this one was.

Please feel free to share any tips and tricks related to the AntMiner U1 USB!


I was having issues getting more than 1 USB to run at a time - tip from iluvspcs/BTCjoe
IMO the drivers from AntMan on the github for cgminer works, but it needs some tweaking.  I shipped a unit to a developer who works on a few of the builds for CG and BFG miner software for his input.  BTCjoe sent this over to get multiples working - here's his trick:

With CGminer is running, add one in and then use Zadig to reinstall the driver for the one you just added.   You kind of have to keep an eye on which one just popped up in the drop down list of Zadig because it doesn't really tell you which one is the new one you just plugged in.

While CGminer is still running, after you reinstall the driver with Zadig, pull it out for a few seconds and plug it back in.. and CGminer will find it and run it..
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Does Cryptsy owe you coin?? on: December 18, 2013, 09:57:59 PM
It's time to start bringing attention to the fact that people are missing coin due to trading on Cryptsy.  I personally am due over 45 XPM due to their trading engine selling CENT at the incorrect price when there were higher buy orders.

Please post details about any coin that is due to you by Cryptsy. 


This topic is self-moderated and I will delete any and all posts that are out of line.  This is not a thread to bash Cryptsy rather bring attention to the fact that they are stealing peoples coin whether intentional or unintentional.

20  Bitcoin / Group buys / List of Open Group Buys on: December 03, 2013, 08:38:19 AM
I know dz already has a list but would it be helpful to people if there was a thread with a grid of available group buys for in hand hardware and group mining?  I'm surprised nobody has put one together yet.

For me, i know it's a PITA to go through these threads every day to see what's available, who's shipping when to where, etc...

This would require a little participation from the organizers as well but may help draw attention to their buys if such a list were stickied at the top.

I'm all ears...
