Hi,

I just came across a post on bitcoin.de where a user "coinnewb" who registered today is offering processing power of "one of his" Avalon miners for BTC.

Since I can't post anywhere else nor write PMs: please someone ask coinnewb if that is him.

He posted exactly the same picture as the bitcointalk coinnewb in this thread but he re-uploaded it today on a German image hoster.


THis is the thread on bitcoin.de: https://forum.bitcoin.de/biete/719-haette-wer-interesse-anteilen-von-einem-avalon-63gh-s-miner.html

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a higher transaction fee.

Yeah, that's a scammer selling shares to a sockpuppet alright. Exact same "Schriftbild".

That's what I told him (same dyslexia, short sentences, they both registered today within 15 minutes).
It was also waaaaay too fast. Interest, PM, answer, payment within a few minutes after creating the thread?... C'mon

I updated my post there linking to this thread and warning that it's a scammer.

People who post pictures of their miners should write their name+date+the forum/community on a piece of paper and add a huge watermark all over the image to keep scammers from using it.
