To clear things up a bit. The MLM indian community member are not intrested in answering any question asked about Uniquebtc and they won't work with us other community member togehter. They want to do there own things how they want to, but never ever again ask for help from other community member if you just want to ask question but not answer yours! They think only because uniquebtc got not much people using it, they can just carry it under the carpet.... they got enough asking for Posting a professional answer here and they dind't accept to do it and thats why I will not work or help any of this guys except people that talk real shit ! To all guys that don't want to get associated with that guys answer the questions that all people asked you!

- If I don't see now a professional answer from them I don't want to get associated as the same EGC community member as they are ! Because EGC is a trusted Coin with a trusted community and I will not let it get broken because of some guys thinking that they are still in MLM and not crypto !
Completely agree, there is nothing I've seen so far to convince me that Uniquebtc is a legitimate service, if it was - they would answer every question. Most scams I've seen have followed similar communication models.

Its not even anymore about that Uniquebtc, it's about showing that we can trust them and work with them in the future. I did explain that to them clearly and always they say to me don't attack indians..... Asking for answers is already attacking them...
That Uniquebtc thing was anyway pyramid model and is Completely MLM and has nothing to do with making real business, only the creater take the real money out of it.
i said we stopped promoting uniquebtc , as no one is interested in doing that plan in INDIA also
 why are u asking repeatedly more on it and focusing  it as a scam  only 100 people joined it
 out of 100 ...80 persons belongs to our team only 20 outsiders invested amount and they too got EGC as we specified
now say who is in lose Huh?
website costs itself 3btc we dont even got that amount , and we repeatedly said dont ask question on that as it is failure project now ..

and we only need support for EGC

Only because your project failed what we already said to you before, is not a reason to just ignore the questions people made to you. If you want to get any trust for the future we need real talk here and we did one hangout extra to get a statement from you here in an professional way ! You were just ignoring it and said don't talk about it whyyy? Only because your project failed....
Thats for me no reason and I think I can talk for everyone here that excepted a statement from you guys.

It's not about who loose what amount or who scam what amount!! Its about what did you do why did you do it and in what way did you do it. For me at the moment it looks like you are in loose of money because of EGCs falling price when you bought and now you tried to get money back with MLM (in crypto scam) to make something profit but now as you made loose at buying EGC and loose with your MLM you just gave it up and think how you can make profit now. Never thought that perhaps crypto community is not as the MLM people? We are here for the cause and not for only money like you guys. You don't give a shit about your Reputation here only $$$ in the head thats my opinion. If I would be wrong you would not always ask for updates and try always to stay in your indian community without talking to us about your projects.... I tried to trust you guys but you always think somebody want to attack you when we want answers.... Welcome in crypto !

u are saying $$$$ in my head , if i invested a small amount (ex:-1 btc ) we can wait for years and i will not have concern about EGC price..

BUT i invested 20btc almost .... hard earned money , so we are always asking about projects and other works..

@gizifreak  :- if we dont have holders and investors for a coin then it wont withstand in the cryptomarket for longterm...

You didn't answer any question professional. Go some sites before and you will see many questions. Thats no chat here that we call you all questions again and again...

It is not a matter of how much you invested!!! If you want trust and work with us answer the questions we said it now nearly 100 times its enough now of trolling us!!!

The issue is that to most educated people MLM plans / Pyramid schemes are effectively a scam. Even the Reserve Bank of India has warnings about them.
Quote
The Reserve Bank has advised that members of public should not to be tempted by promises of high returns offered by entities running Multi-level Marketing/Chain Marketing/Pyramid Structure Schemes. The Reserve Bank has reiterated that falling prey to such offers can result in direct financial losses and they, in their own interest, should refrain from responding to such offers in any manner.
(https://rbi.org.in/SCRIPTs/BS_PressReleaseDisplay.aspx?prid=32908) and also written up in the Times of India (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/RBI-warns-against-pyramid-schemes/articleshow/45724589.cms)

If you look at how MLM plans / Pyramid schemes work they generally provide two benefits to the "investor" a small token (in this case some EGC worth 1/3 of the total investment) and the referral fee from those below you. Usually the referral fee is where most of your returns come from.

Doing some maths for the numbers of people that need to be involved using the setup from this scheme.
At the top you have a single person
In the layer below there are 3 people (total of 4 in the scheme)
In the layer below there are 9 people (total of 13 in the scheme)
In the layer below there are 27 people (total of 40 in the scheme)
In the layer below there are 81 people (total of 121 in the scheme)
In the layer below there are 243 people (total of 364 in the scheme)

For people in each layer to get their referral income they need people to join the layer below. This quickly becomes unsustainable (at around 20 layers we'll need space travel to find new worlds to sell the plan to). This sustainability is what generally makes these schemes a scam, the person at the top gets rich quickly, the people at the bottom effectively lose out.

what you have described is a pyramid scheme - NOT an mlm ...

multi-level-marketing systems ( note - systems NOT schemes ) actually work and ARE legal all over the world ...

pyramid schemes are NOT legal - nor are they sustainable ...

mlm systems - like amway for example - that are well structured and well established - are a highly successful way of making money for anyone and everyone that is willing to put the time and effort and knowledge into it ...

i for one - am not ... but that is beside the point ...

you should never bundle pyramid schemes and mlm systems in the same sentence - nor in a side by side manner as you have mate ...

one is a legit business - the other is to rip off as many of the lower heirarchy plebs as you can - to make money for the top rung only ... THAT is a pyramid - THAT is illegal ... and highly immoral on so many levels ...

insofaras any investments are concerned - ANY and ALL professional businesses and legitimate systems ALWAYS remain transparent and open about what they do and what is behind the systems ... ANY and ALL these systems also answer questions that 'potential investors' ( ie - their customers .. ie - the systems 'bosses' ) in the utmost professionalism AND in concise and complete factual responses ... not in casual 'backyard' commentary about some 'info' they wish to present to these investors ...

i have just finished a short term contract with a multiBILLION dollar organization - ge / latitude - for their migration project ... a company like this ( whether a corporate using their ownership model - or corporate in an mlm model ) will ALWAYS have - in writing - the facts and figures and specifics of any system they are introducing into the market ... with contractual obligations on both the corporate side - and the investor side ... any questions that come from the investor market are answered promptly and concisely and also in writing so that NO ambiguity is confronted at a later date ...

anything short of this professional method of investment ( whether corporate like ge / latitude - or mlm like amway ( also a multiBILIION dollar company ) ) should be researched thoroughly - or avoided altogether ...

we ( cwi ) have been working with steven for a while now - and have adopted him as one of our own - because of the skill and honesty and transparency as well as the integrity he brings to the table ... a few of the many traits we work with on a daily basis - and will continue to seek those who hold these traits to work with ... bringing a better 'system' so that 'schemes' are not as easily accepted ...

thats my 7btc worth ...

Thank you for correcting me, I've said that this looked like a pyramid scheme many times before in this thread and you're the first to correct me.

However I'm struggling to see what the actual difference is (apart form the name and maybe how it's documented). This isn't helped when lots of the standard documentation seems to suggest they're both very similar. For instance the first paragraph on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-level_marketing

Quote
Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called pyramid selling,[1][2][3][4] network marketing,[3][5][6] and referral marketing,[7] is a controversial pyramid-shaped marketing strategy where profit is theoretically derived from two revenue streams: from a sales force of a participating salesperson compensated via the direct sales generated by the salesperson, as well as from the sales of other salespeople that the participating salesperson has recruited and of their recruits down the line.

Even my quote above from the RBI seems to link both MLM and Pyramid selling together!

It seems that both MLM and the illegal pyramid schemes share a lot of things in common and very few differences (mostly in terms of what's being sold). From what I understand of how uniquebtc was setup I think the majority of my description is probably still correct whatever name you put on it.

we ( cwi ) have been working with steven for a while now - and have adopted him as one of our own - because of the skill and honesty and transparency as well as the integrity he brings to the table ... a few of the many traits we work with on a daily basis - and will continue to seek those who hold these traits to work with ... bringing a better 'system' so that 'schemes' are not as easily accepted ...

thats my 7btc worth ...

I'm aware of who you are and your involvement. One of the initial concerns (which was corrected relatively quickly) was that uniquebtc appeared to be linked directly to EGC and Steven (which is isn't) and how that it looked suspicious.

I believe that this wasn't meant to be a scam, unfortunately however that's how its come across. I think at least some of that has come from raised emotions from all sides when responding and the various language barriers we have.

I shall go and read some more on the differences between MLM and the various scams.

I'm with Gizfreak, all opinions should be in EGC  Grin
thats my 2EGC at least.

Anyone else having a problem with EverGreenCoin Wallet. Its not synchronizing. Blocks remaining is getting higher. I seem to be stuck at 716843. Any suggestions?

thats said ... what is your .conf parameters? ...

if you have ANY addnodes in the file - remove ALL of them and resync ... even if it means deleting the entire blockchain and syncing from the start again ...

you may be forking due to them ... and if you are not in a fork - check firewalls and all other apps that may block your access to the blockchain ...

#crysx

Where can I find the .conf parameter?. I'm on a mac. Thanks!

The .conf parameters he speaks of would be within the evergreencoin.conf file. On a Mac this would be located within /Users/YOUR USERNAME HERE/Library/Application Support/EverGreenCoin/ though you may not have an evergreencoin.conf file because it is not needed.

I would suggest to close your wallet, delete the peers.dat file that is also located within /Users/YOUR USERNAME HERE/Library/Application Support/EverGreenCoin/ and then relaunch the wallet and allow it to run its course. Be careful not to delete your wallet.dat file as that is irreplaceable and contains your coins.

what you have described is a pyramid scheme - NOT an mlm ...

multi-level-marketing systems ( note - systems NOT schemes ) actually work and ARE legal all over the world ...

Thank you for correcting me, I've said that this looked like a pyramid scheme many times before in this thread and you're the first to correct me.

However I'm struggling to see what the actual difference is (apart form the name and maybe how it's documented). This isn't helped when lots of the standard documentation seems to suggest they're both very similar. For instance the first paragraph on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-level_marketing

Quote
Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called pyramid selling,[1][2][3][4] network marketing,[3][5][6] and referral marketing,[7] is a controversial pyramid-shaped marketing strategy where profit is theoretically derived from two revenue streams: from a sales force of a participating salesperson compensated via the direct sales generated by the salesperson, as well as from the sales of other salespeople that the participating salesperson has recruited and of their recruits down the line.

Even my quote above from the RBI seems to link both MLM and Pyramid selling together!

It seems that both MLM and the illegal pyramid schemes share a lot of things in common and very few differences (mostly in terms of what's being sold). From what I understand of how uniquebtc was setup I think the majority of my description is probably still correct whatever name you put on it.

we ( cwi ) have been working with steven for a while now - and have adopted him as one of our own - because of the skill and honesty and transparency as well as the integrity he brings to the table ... a few of the many traits we work with on a daily basis - and will continue to seek those who hold these traits to work with ... bringing a better 'system' so that 'schemes' are not as easily accepted ...

thats my 7btc worth ...

I'm aware of who you are and your involvement. One of the initial concerns (which was corrected relatively quickly) was that uniquebtc appeared to be linked directly to EGC and Steven (which is isn't) and how that it looked suspicious.

I believe that this wasn't meant to be a scam, unfortunately however that's how its come across. I think at least some of that has come from raised emotions from all sides when responding and the various language barriers we have.

I shall go and read some more on the differences between MLM and the various scams.

I'm with Gizfreak, all opinions should be in EGC  Grin
thats my 2EGC at least.

all good mate ...

you are a respected member of teh community here - and in others ... i too know who you are - and understand you mean no harm ... you base most of your decisions and opinions on fact - with some emotion thrown in for good measure ... after all - what are we without an emotional connection ...

the main difference ( and also why it is LEGAL all over the world ) is that an mlm allows its corresponding recruits to make more money and become further entrenched ( and as such make eevn more money ) than the person that introduced them ... unlike a pyramid 'scheme' where ONLY the people 'above' you can make more money than you - and the only way to make money is to recruit others to screw them out of their cash ...

most mlms actually sell products and services ... pyramids sell the scheme and filter cash through it ... hence why pyramid schemes are illegal ... its a form of gambling ...

the mlm that this group is pushing is their way of making money - and unless its a professional setup - then this setup can go nowhere except conjure images of 'scams' and 'ripoffs' - even though they 'may' not be ... i have not looked into it - as i have no interest in it ... BUT - the system MUST be professionally setup for someone like me to even look at it ...

this system is about btc / money - whether invested by this group or not ... it is NOT about egc and the projects' goals and focus ... so again - i am not interested in it ... there are MANY other btc driven coins out there to play with and make huge amounts of money from ... eth - zec - dcr - and many many others ...

egc is an ecologically based coin - and the project itself is driven by the need ( and want ) to support our ecology and environment ...

again mate - i have not followed what uniquebtc is doing ... but for those in the 'group from india' that have invested large sums of btc into egc - it seems that its ALL about the btc return and not the egc project itself ... if that is the case - it is understandable WHY the return is more important than the project itself - but doesnt make it a good thing in my opinion ...

if the focus IS egc - then ANY and ALL investements ( whether btc or time or effort ) is worth it - and worth the risk of 'losing' it for the benefit of the project ...

mlm or not - one should ALWAYS be aware of the pitfalls - even in legit businesses - and be aware that and decision that is made one way or another - has consequences ...

egc is a good coin - a good project - has a good community - and a good team behind it ... thats all that matters to us ...

if a business model it to be structured for it - whether mlm or not - then egc as a whole will benefit from a good solid foundation of a business model ...

EVERYONE deserves to succeed - its jut HOW you do it ... this project along with many others that are honest and forthright - will suffer in the beginning ... we do not scam or rip anyone or any business off to make the btc / cashflow to support the projects we take on - like many of the 'devs' out there that create these types of coins and disappear ...

nup - we are here for the long haul - and with steven as the sole / lead for 'his baby' egc - this coin is destined to be up there with some of the best ... and we are proud to be not only associated with the coin - but proud to have an honest hard workign talented developer like steven on our side also ...

as mentioned before - those traits are very hard to come by in crypto - but are what makes the difference ...

we will be updating the cwi op next week - ill be spending some time on it and will make it as presentable as possible ( though steven will need to reorganize it and make it look presentable if he has the time - hint hint mate Wink ) - and egc will be part of that update ...

o - and always remember - these are MY opinions and not of steven or the egc community in general ... just mine alone ...

Let's end this discussion about a third party project, ok? Getting tired of it.
Everybody is free to think and act as he pleases, as long as it doesn't harm uninvolved people like mentioning them as responsible.
So let's move on with bringing EGC to where it should belong, in the cryptocurrency top 50.

I couldn't have said those bits better myself.

With a new community built website hopefully coming soon, and the various bits of work happening in the background to move us onwards and upwards the future is bright. There's a good strong core that will ultimately let us move past these setbacks (and we seem to have had a few). 2017 should be a good year for EGC.

I'd also encourage anyone interested in EGC long term to join us on IRC (http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=EverGreenCoin) or slack and get involved.
