You still can check all tests and laboratory tests results to see that Nagri-HL is unique. Moreover, we if you are working with marijuana, you should know that organically-grown crops are appreciated more, than the same grown with the help of pesticides or another products of the chemical industry

I have and they are not unique at all.  I even posted a study above showing that just adding Humic acid improved growth by 70% - higher than your 20-50% or whatever it was.  Any growth medium lacking humic will do better when you add it.

Where is your guaranteed analysis?

I've been growing marijuana for almost a decade now and over the years have learned a lot about nutrients and the science behind them.  From looking at your website I don't see how your product is special at all.

It appears it is nothing more than a Humic based liquid fertilizer with micro and macro nutrients.  There are literally hundreds of products just like this and it is a very crowded market in the large scale agricultural space.


What makes your product so special?  Scientific studies have shown applying any type of humic nutrient to the soil increases yield up to 70% compared to soil without humic so your product is no different.

Can you share a guaranteed analysis?  

Can you share your companies current earnings and sales volume?  

How much will you sell your product for?  Can you beat one of the largest humic seller BioAg?  http://www.bioag.com/

Why are you launching an ITO?  What technological purpose is there to tokenize your product?

This project just sounds like a prime example of the ridiculous hyper "blockchain everything" environment we are in right now.

Nagri- HL compliments the evolutionary journey of planted seeds as they make their way from soil to harvest. Used as a pre-planting treatment it conditions seeds for stubborn and steady growth despite the ever present adverse elements.

Nagri- HL is also applicable as a post-emergent foliar spray throughout plants’ growth period.

Bottled in liquid form, Nagri- HL combines humic acid with a proprietary micro nutrient & elements blend, and then further enhanced with extremely potent antioxidants that serve to promote the development of a strong and resilient root system. The latter serve as a fertile ground for a higher rate of nutrient absorption which leads to increased yields and prosperous farming communities.

Antioxidants?  Is this a translation error?  Since when do fertilizers have antioxidants and how in the world do they benefit plants?!?  Huh Huh


I wouldn't be surprised if this was actually a scam honestly.  I see comments here of people saying "they already have a product" can you prove this?  You are just taken their word for it.  You can't buy this product right now at all.  

Even if it wasn't a scam and they had a product for real, their is zero technical reason why it needs a token so this is nothing more than them trying to get investment capital.  There is almost zero reason for the token price to go up since there is no reason to use the token other than to get a small discount on the product.  Let's be real - the odds of a farmer using an obscure token is almost 0%

If each token represented a stake in the companies profits that would be a different story.

BUYERS BEWARE


Your main point of view is that you can not buy NAGRI-HL right now? That is why we are raising money. If we reach a goal and build a production line or a factory, then you will be able to buy fertilizers. And our investors will do that for tokens with a higher discount.

You still can check results of the field tests at our website

No, that was not my main point.  Read through that again.  My main point is your product is nothing special at all and have no reason to use a token.  There are hundreds of Humic based nutrients on the market and expecting farmers to buy an obscure token for a tiny discount is not a practical business model.  This is purely a cash grab. 

You also have neglected to show a guaranteed analysis of the fertilizer (for those unaware a guaranteed analysis shows what is in the fertilizer and is required by law in the USA and pretty much every other 1st world country).  You have zero chance of selling this product in any first world country, especially the USA without this.

aro.cool

I let my ~12-13 H/s go for about 2 hours on aro.cool and I got nothing - aro.cool seems to have very little collective hashing power

I switched over to aropool.com and am getting ~1 ARO an hour.

is this normal?

I just want the company to either succeed or fail on it's own merits.

It already has failed on its own merits....

As for your last post trying to sling more mud at BG, it makes absolutely no freaking sense.  You are becoming the main troll/spammer.

Has anyone actively given Shawn your personal information.  I know we have speculated it is not illegal to buy shares, but have we verified this?

This is the information he is asking from me:

We would like to know more about your investment with Ken Slaughter and Active Mining Corporation(“AMC”).

If you could provide the following information it  would be greatly appreciated:

-          Date shares were purchased
-          How and where were the shares were purchased –
-          What convinced you to buy  shares in AMC
-          Who provided information to you regarding the investment
-          What evidence of purchase do you have, documents, etc.
-          Did  you review any offering materials before purchasing shares
-          Are you an accredited investor
-          Any additional information you can supply regarding what you were led to believe about Ken Slaughter, AMC or the investment, including any untrue statements

He needs to remain silent.  He told me.  He is optimistic for the future of the company.

I officially have no words for the amount of stupid you are.
11  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 09, 2014, 12:13:52 AM
Ahhh, this thread never ceases to amaze me.

I only want information on what the MSD instructions are... What the fuck are you all doing?

the misery this thread has descended into is utterly astounding.

do none of you have anything better to do? Some of you are writing on here in such a continuous stream that it seems you have no life other than to sit on this thread and write nonsense all fucking day long.

YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED.

Get out a here FFS and get on with it, this is a done deal.

There is no official ruling yet.  Will probably take a while for it to even get started.
12  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 08, 2014, 08:16:26 PM
There is something fishy going on with the ActM Thread account.  The use of opinionated language is in contrast to the agreement the mods had.  Contrary to what some believe, I don't delete all the posts I'm given credit for.  There are also silent moderators who I have given the passwords to who asked me to remain anonymous and will continue to be so.  Yes, I moderated with a heavy hand and would instantly delete all posts from all accounts that had been previously banned.  Minerpart and his many guises, bitlind and others are just the start of a long list of butthurt and revengeful posters who I would instantly delete.
I would also delete the occasional post from regulars such as DTS's incessant whining 'sky is falling posts', or knybe and his FTFY posts which added nothing to the conversation. Oh that and the tens and even hundreds of trolls posts that would happen every single day, so as to provide shareholders with a thread that was at least readable.

I've had another mod contact me to say they are also locked out and I wonder if that means Ken is also locked out of his own thread?

The ActM Thread posts from earlier today, using language like,  '..is out of his mind', 'rapid onset insanity', 'Or God help you Kenneth E Slaughter', 'ActM Thread out', 'come then friend let us moderate', are a worrying development and suggest the account has been hacked and is now under the control of those who are set on causing further harm to ActiveMining.

Just stop posting man.
13  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 08, 2014, 02:08:12 AM

Things have officially changed in regards to the moderation of this thread. Zumzero is clearly out of his mind.

SNIP

Regards,
ActM Thread Moderators

Good on you mods.

@Zum, I seriously can't wait until this all finally burns down and your get ostracized as you should be.

I have accepted it, I have losses in excess of 300 BTC.  I will provide any information to the US govt in attempt to get even a fraction of this back.
14  Economy / Securities / Re: A Bump in the Road on: June 05, 2014, 03:50:12 PM
What is happening is not a "bump in the road".

For over a year, there has been a pattern that has repeated. That pattern involves a lack of news, being told to wait for the upcoming big announcement.  Then the anouncement that comes is a grand disappointment.

We may never know if Ken, at the start was sincere and believed he could do what he said he wanted to do.
All we know is that despite his claims to have 30 years in business, he has not really ever been successful with any of his businesses, and that he has had a pattern of failures and bad decisions in regard to Active Mining/VMC.  He also has had complaint in regard to a cable/data company he ran previous to VMC.

Given Ken's track record with ActM/VMC, there is absolutely no reason evidence to show that this company has any possibility of being successful. In fact, the evidence suggests that whatever Ken's original motivations and intentions, it is now being run like a classic confidence scam.

Ken has indicated to me in PM, that he believes that the amount that will be paid in settlement to shareholders has already been agreed upon and established with finality.  That is a lie.

I contacted Jason Kander's office at 1-800-721-7996 and was told that it has not yet been determined what and how much and according to what formula will be paid to shareholders.

The impression that I have gotten from Ken and from his lawyer's press release (link below) is that Ken feels he should only pay the original investors, and then only the dollar amount of the value of the shares  at the time of the first IPO, plus 8% interest.  That would leave anyone who bought shares from any of the exchanges after out in the cold. My contention is that Jason Kander's office does not understand bitcoin, and we need to contact him and share our opinions and experience with him and his office and his investigators.

Further, I am sure Ken will set up some high bar to prove that you bought at first IPO.

My opinion is that ActM will not survive this little bump. Ken will try to hide any and all assets from ActM. Ken is not an honest man and anyone here who still has faith in him and trusts him is foolish. We each should contact Jason Kander's office and politely share what information we have. We should also suggest that we want payment in Bit, or at the value of bitcoin at the time of the cease and desist order and not the value of bitcoin at the time of the first IPO.

Kander's office has heard from Ken's lawyer but has not heard from many of us.

My further opinion is that all assets from ActM should be assessed and once a value place on them all, and a punitive fine added to that, and then that number should be divided by the total number of shares not owned by Ken or any member of the Slaughter clan.  And, the payment should be made based upon that calculation.

ActM should not be allowed to continue under Ken's control. Ken should be put into a situation where he is unable to start shady businesses ever again.

Please call Kander's office  1-800-721-7996. Tell whomever answers that you are a sharehold in Active Mining and would like to speak to the financial investigator.


For those of you who believe that somehow, talking to the Secretary of State of Missouri has ruined your chance of being a millionaire, you are foolish. Ken by his own mismanagment, intentional or due to incompetence, brought this upon himself. If we do not educate Kander's office on the situation, Ken's lawyer will be the major source of info regarding Bitcoin and we will lose out.



From the Press Release:

"Mr Sheppard added, "Bitcoin have recently received substantial credibilty when DirecTV agreed to accept Bitcoins as payment."

Uhh, wasn't it DISH?
15  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 04, 2014, 03:24:44 AM
Ken,

-Will the company continue?

-Why is the company in a good position?

Yes, this is just a bump in the road.

is dividend on the way?

you said those who tendered to actm during bitfunder closure notice, will get the dividends when listed somewhere else, those who didn't tender will lose out on dividend.
i remember this Smiley

so pay dividend, and then list those remaining shares?

No dividend is going to be paid!

Active Mining will have to use non-investor funds to pay a fine of up to $100,000 this will have to come from
the mining account only.  The balance in the mining account will used to fund operations.

maybe he means the currently mined coins, and/or pay over time.
if not , then sad.

Why would this be a good thing?  This is exactly what he is going to do (use the mined coin) - except they are not his to use for his fuck ups!  The only reason he has those boards is because of US, the investors!
16  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 03, 2014, 09:47:34 PM

Calm down.  I'm expressing an opinion.  It is not invalid because you don't share it.  it is my own and 100% honestly how I feel.  If you can believe that I am getting paid, God only knows what other shite you are capable of believing in.

I strongly believe if we were to make a poll a good 90% of responders would feel that you are either

A) intentionally writing rosy, misleading BS
B) payed by Ken in some way
C) just plain old crazy with ridiculous expectations in the face of utter failures.


Latest example in how you make grand statements with absolutely zero evidence and contrary to recent postings:


In terms of shareholders asking for refunds there's a lot of chat but in reality it will have an absolute minimal affect on ActM.  There will be hardly any shareholders who ask for refunds and those that do will be paid, in fiat, for a pittance.
17  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 03, 2014, 09:32:36 PM
We all knew this day would come.  I'm actually glad it's here because once the dust settles we can move on with the company and continue without the MSD cloud hanging over us.  It's the same old pattern with ActM.  Suddenly we get what should be the coup de grace, we go down but don't stay down. I fact we seem to rise from the ashes a little bit stronger from the ordeal.  ActM is a remarkably resilient beast and it's my view that we'll weather this storm as we've weathered all the others that have come before.  

In terms of shareholders asking for refunds there's a lot of chat but in reality it will have an absolute minimal affect on ActM.  There will be hardly any shareholders who ask for refunds and those that do will be paid, in fiat, for a pittance.

As usual there's a whole load of melodrama, exaggeration, people talking rubbish and pulling numbers out their arses, the usual shit stirrers and trolls resurfacing and the obligatory shareholder or two who finally crack and cross to the dark side.

This time next month the share price might not reach 0.003 thanks to Bitcoin traitors but those of us who are holding for as long as it takes, we will have our day in the sun.

Cheer up you lot, it might never happen!  Smiley



Good god man, you have your head in fairy land!  Give it up!

I am starting to ponder if Ken pays you for this blind faith.  More likely you are just trying to doop new investors so you can dump shares.  I bet you already have it all planned out at what price you were going to dump X amount of shares.  Too bad the share price will never see anywhere near 0.003 you predicted "within a month."  This company is dead, end of story.  Can you not see the pattern we now know from Ken's past businesses?

I implore you to take a few minutes and just read what you have posted over the last few months, and my question is to you - why are you always so freaking positive and only see the rosy side of this godforsaken mess?  I am being serious.  I mean just a few days ago you said "
Mark my words and someone please post my quote within a month when shares are trading at 0.003+ because I'm not the 'I told you so' kind of guy."  Where do you get this insane confidence in Ken from?

And Zum, I would like to see how you can spin the multitude of past businesses failures and liquidations Ken has been apart of into a positive.
18  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] Official Shareholder Discussion Thread [Moderated] on: June 03, 2014, 06:30:57 PM
The situation and how it progresses from here is pretty clear if you think about it. Ken will be instructing his lawyer to make sure everything is done to protect his own personal  interests and assets.  This means that Ken's lawyer is now being paid by Ken using our money to protect Ken from our lawsuits and claims. Funny huh?

Not only is Kens TOP priority his own interests (isn't that the same for everyone?) he will also want to close ACTM down as quickly and satisfactorily as possible. That will mean he has to, foremost, abide by the MSD ruling on reimbursement. He must then tackle the pre-order refund issue. Once he gets as far down that road as possible by exhausting company savings (75% of the mining coins are going to the MSD) the company will go into liquidation and Ken will wrap it up so that he as ex-CEO has no responsibility for the company's liabilities.


Sure Ken could potentially be sued by investors and a claim could be made on his personal assets eg his house and savings but if he acts like a CEO and fills in the correct forms he will protect himself as best he can from a successful claim on his personal assets. By the way behaving like a responsible CEO in the courts eyes would involve saying things like 'the company is in a great position and very strong'. That is PR. If he said 'the company is struggling, about to fold' he could be accused of undermining share performance and not doing his best for shareholders. So no matter how bad things are a CEO is usually expected to say positive things in public.

So right now Ken's lawyer will be focusing on protecting his client as any good lawyer does while this company is wound down.

What does Ken get out of this closure? Well you would think getting out of this mess with no financial liabilities and retaining his personal assests (in effect making nothing for his efforts over the past 12months) would be a good result right now. He is facing massive fines, individuals lawsuits, a class action suit. Closing the company (properly and legally) would for anyone I think seem to be the best option.

Is there anything else? Well you might not believe this but be cynical for a minute, almost every start-up CEO when they can get away with it will take some profits for their back-pocket. It's natural, it's simply self-preservation especially when you don't know if the company will make it past year 1. You would do it so why hasn't Ken? Well I think the lack of accounts and the ability to easily move BTC would say he definitely has a large number of coins somewhere. He could have 500, or 200. Both are significant amounts and will be worth a lot of money in a few years. He may have taken the coins underhanded or he may have paid himself the money as wages. Either way it's his coin now and nothing we can do about it. So put yourself in his position and think, what you would do?

Situation - 2-500 coins in the bank, a company facing huge fines and court cases, very little company savings.

It's more than obvious where this is going.

Well it looks like he has successfully done this with 3 or so previous companies, so I guess we can say he has the experience.

Good lord what a shit fest.


Keep in mind, this is a State investigation.  It does not clear Ken from a potential federal investigation which would be a lot worse.


I think the possibiilty of the SEC getting involved is almost a certain.  They just went after Erik Voorhees, ACTM is now fully on the radar and a state is already involved.

Bravo Ken.  You really have won me back.  Shares are next but I think we really should wait for colored coins.  

And not to troll... but doesn't anyone have a decent camera to take better video?!  It would  be awesome to see a complete walk-though in HD

Would you allow say me, an investor, to come in and shoot a video with proper equipment?
