Even though we often read these stuff such as warning on scam sites, ponzis, hyip here on this forum, there are still some people who risk their money and get scammed at the end. Has anyone earned even 1 BTC with this investment sites? What's the point of having this thread? Its a place for scammers to continue fish from newbies.

not sure about this.. but for me if you wanna earn 1btc with investment, you should have 1btc to invest..
well if you using small funds to invest and wanna earn 1btc profit with it, i think its impossible to achieve..
however if i have 1btc i wont use it for invest.. the site goes scam for sure Grin

You mean this section, every good thing could be abused by people with bad intentions, this section is still useful and necessary that is why it is called caveat emptor

All blinded by greed, or addiction to it somehow.
I saw a retard making a thread hoping ponzi can last longer by having escrow for deposits etc.
Ya, who would wanna put their foot in pile of shts, a scam will be a scam somehow.
I even saw a poster asking innocently to an admin of a site.
''i want to reinvest all of my coins but im afraid of investing it all

admin is there assurance that it can be last forever ur business''

My first thought

Hi, just curious are u 6 yrs old?
I imagined a bad guy asking a 6 yrs old to follow him and the boy asked are u a bad guy?
The bad guy said Of course not, please come with me.
And the boy followed.

Most of the suckers here have all this mindset and thus always walking in this cycle.

A scam will be a scam.
It won't sustain in long run, cause they can't make $ for you at all, they don't have any business model or investment plans to make money grows.
All they did is use other people's $ to pay other users, so those who earned $ is just from other victims... in short a vicious cycle.
People KNEW, but they just dump their $ in hoping for a miracle.

Maybe I have to give another example for people who can't understand.
It's like- Going down to dirty sewers looking for fresh air.

I have played many of these sites. Sure, I've lost on some, but overall I've made 2.3BTC in a period of 2 months.

EVERY doubler, probably every investore-based game here will sooner or later turn out to be a scam.
Still, at the beginning you can make some money with it, in that small window when they are paying.

If people never made profit in these schemes they would die real fast.
But playing careful and diverse you do can make profit in it in the long run.
2015 was a good year to me, but I blew my profits on parties, holidays and women, so yeah there is that.
Just don't focus on the promises of projects and see your actual personal gain and turnover you had to make for that.

Yes some have already earned some big sum of money from hyips but mostly they are some experienced one or affilates of those hyip.
Hyip can't sustain for long so the one who invest early can get some profit but it will be still risky as hyip can shutdown on the very next day after they get some large investors.

i am a bit proud to say that i've earned more than 1 btc with sites on this board collectively since cryptodouble days. but before i earn , of course i lose some bitcoins also , still i can say i am on profit despite of the losses i experienced. i know ponzis and hyips will always scam, but i still invest to gain quick profit, its just a matter of taking risks Wink

Big Mistake on using your Savings,

You should have save first and invest what is excess on your savings. Lack of research and understanding brings some people on unfortunate scams, if you learn how to play it will be profitable.

These sites are considered games hence why you are in the investorbased games section of the board.  Many people profit if you invest in the right sites early on.  Don't invest what you cant afford to lose and treat these sites as a game with the knowledge that you can win or lose...

Stop calling a SCAM a "game" (if english is not your 1st language then I can understand your lack of understanding of the english language) Investment is not a game

The only "game" is the SCAM

You are right about Investing is no game.

But HYIp's, doublers and Ponzi's should never, I repeat never be considered an investment.
Consider them a gamble, a scam or a game right from the start.

It is all about psychology and interpretation, a quote from a different post of mine:

Quote
It would be wise for some to focus on the Games aspect instead of the investments parts as investments give people the sense they will earn and games that they might win.   Roll Eyes

"Investment" gives people BTCBTCBTC in their eyes and they are already spending their virtual profits in their head
"games" gives people the idea that they might win BTCBTCBTC but a lot of people say "Hell no i'm playing no game with my savings"

So yeah please do consider it a game.
