My Pending balance shows a - (negative) symbol, and it hasn't moved for a week now. Something really fishy here? Can anybody comment on what happened here?


My payouts have also stopped recording, but have been paid out in the coins that met their payout minimum (ltc and dash).

A month ago they stopped showing my unpaid balance (not happy, and added more skepticism)
A week ago they stopped showing payouts period... but still paid out, which added so much skepticism that I have now written them off.

* Yesterday I saw an article from coindesk saying that GM ran out of ethereum cause they haven't mined a block in 6 weeks.... ahhhhh..... if it's true, that's trouble, if it's an attempt at an excuse, that's trouble.

Either way, it is what it is. I love the premise of being able to mine with only $30, and no electrical restrictions, had to give it a try. We'll just have to wait and see what happens here.

Edit : * swear is saw an article, but seeing I could not find it on a search, or looking through my history, guess it didn't happen.

I only recently bought in GM at 2.7TH, got one $5 payout.

Also have not received anything on my small Dash operation in the last week. I used to get a payout every 2nd day.

Pending balances all show 0. Are they locking down the hatches for the fork?

Cheers,
Jaco Smit

Got this answer from them this morning:

Hi,

thank you for contacting us.

We have been experiencing some technical difficulties in the past few days. As a result, user balances were not shown correctly and the functionality of the website has been reduced.

This is representing a bigger challenge than expected, but our IT Team is currently working on solving the issues. This situation has also forced us to hold payouts since the last 20th of July, but they will be released to your wallets as soon as the situation is stabilized. We expect to have everything solved (payouts included) during this week.

But i thought they posted on twitter that they have been hacked and stopped payments for this reason. Now their ticket support is saying something else which is something i noticed on the payments logged on my account.
So GM, which is it? Were you hacked or are you having Website issues with false Balances due to your ponzi scheme collapsing?

I am pretty sure they use the constant buy in money and upgrading to pay out consumers (basically a ponzi scheme)
http://www.livebitcoinnews.com/genesis-mining-customers-complain-lack-payments/
This indicates that they havent found a block for a while? very strange....
Will definately negatively downvote the trust on their profile.
Something doesnt add up with this company!

Always do your best, what you plant now, you will Mine Later.

I've typically defended them because I've revived my funds, but this recent exploit and payment stoppage is an obvious attempt to collect btcABC and Btc cash.  They build the wallets, collect the forked coins, then give us the crap were entitled to while they keep the forked coins.

I bet no payouts before Aug 1

Is like to see the hot wallet transaction id's.   Bet they don't exist

Did I just get gox'ed or what? My zcash payouts are flat lining.

All good here. So i switched to 100% doge mining on my lifetime contract which I am really happy about.

Have a ball you all.

They stopped paying me completely after 1.5 years. I had actually just upped my investment by $160.00, then after about 2 weeks they stopped paying. When I asked them why they said they were having "technical difficulties." SCAMMERS!!!

The initial reports they weren't able to pay ongoing claims due to not hitting an ethereum block demonstrates they are severely underfunded and relying upon incoming deposits and luck. The fact they suddenly run into problems the moment the market turns down seems like no coincidence. Many people predicted these same things years ago. How they would ever be able to handle users stopping 'reinvestment' and then withdrawing en masse remains shrouded in mystery.

Watching the mental denial process of people participating in a true Ponzi is mind boggling. Like drowning swimmers they'll lash out and try to drag down the people trying to save them.

This is the truly obsurdly enormous red flag, at the very least, they sold more hashrate then they have mining... for the sake of the arguement, assume they have the mining facility they have claimed to have.

They claim to have the largest ethereum mine, they claim to have 200,000 customers... if each customer only put in the $30 minimum for 1 MH, then the facility is producing at least 200 GH... does it make sense that a 200 GH mining facility hasn't hit a block in a month... 2 months... 6 months (the article I think said since Feb.)

Either the report is full of it, or GM.

Regardless, having issues paying customers/contrators/suppliers is never a good sign for a company.

Bong. 567 doge coins was delivered to my wallet right now.

Switching to pure bitcoin mining for the time being.

Thank You Genesis Cheesy

PS: 1.75 TH/S lifetime contract here. You can put the lifesaver away for now.

>And you above me. Put away those dots if you don't know how to connect them.

Ok, the real reason of stopping payouts is that Genesis Mining has been hacked.

http://blog.genesis-mining.com/genesis-mining-service-update

Fortunately I won't loose much even if they shut down. My X11 contract will be killed anyway by Bitmain D3 miners going live this September.

Wow and that is before or after the segwit kicked in ?

I'll bet they will find out who did it. Unless. Somebody send the money to a bitcoinmixer.

I have requested my payout for Doge coins. I am not getting those on daily basis, I think they are paying Doge coin on weekly basis. What happened to GM is there any problem with them because I suggested many people to invest here.

They're not ALL mining Ethereum given that that contract is a terrible value.  The majority of their customers are mining Bitcoin where the continual difficulty increases is more predictable.

Are y'all aware that payouts are not made daily unless it meets a minimum payment threshold, hence the delay?  Or terminates completely if the daily management fees cost more than your daily earnings, sans a grace period?  RTFM.
