hi dev,
  cloud we have some update before friday ? a week is not long but may be enough to solve some problem .

Thanks for your involvement.
Clearly, recent developments show the great potential of a game like FootballCoin.
I cannot make a promise about a specific date. I can, however, promise that all problems are ironed out before the release. In this way we can avoid the problems that arose with other projects, for example, cryptokitties, that a user mentioned earlier.

Rules for Placating Investors

Rule 1: Do not replace defined deadlines with undefined deadlines. We went from November/December to 'cannot make a promise about a specific date', which could mean December, it could mean April, it could mean never.

Rule 2: Provide concrete answers to questions. "What exchanges will XFCCoin be on?" Dev Answer: "We applied to several major exchanges". This tells us nothing, how about "We applied to Bittrex on October 7, status: application pending, We applied to Cryptopia on October 27, status: application processing". Something concrete, something that tells us a) what exchanges it will be on, and b) the status. Otherwise it seems like you are telling us nothing, which you may well be, you may not be, we don't know, it's impossible to know.

Rule 3: Provide concrete actionable steps related to the in-game economy and how it relates to the current RAPID fluctuations and volatility with Bitcoin. A basic player card currently costs 200 dollars due to Bitcoin's value, which, when compared to more expensive cards currently makes this the most expensive game to play in the entire world. Do you intend to either a) alter amounts in the swap from the previous exchange rate under the ICO when you switch to the new blockchain, so a person who invested 2.66BTC for 250K coins would receive more while keeping player prices the same, or will the player prices go down, or, the best solution, will they fluctuate with the market and not be pinned to a specific retail price?

It is to your advantage, especially now that you have your own blockchain, to have XFCCoin on major exchanges in order to get a solid combination of investors to make XFC worth something, and therefore prizes for the actual game to be worth something, which, in turn, will attract fantasy sports enthusiasts as well as gamblers, as well as to attract new players. People will not learn about this game through your own website alone nor will they learn about it through your own individual exchange, as it will be a needle in a haystack of cryptocurrency exchanges. My fear is that once you have your own exchange, your priorities will shift to be less concerned about getting it listed on popular crypto exchanges, and this is a huge mistake, not only for your investors, but for yourselves. But I wouldn't know, because we aren't told anything concrete. Normal ICOs have their coin on an exchange within ONE MONTH of the end of an ICO, you read that correctly, ONE MONTH.

Rule 4: Provide updates about the status of ongoing initiatives, status of the blockchain, where the wallet is, WITHOUT people having to kick, scream, yell, threaten, or explode in a ball of rage in order to get a response. We have waited a VERY long time (in the crypto world) for this project to come to fruition, and these updates, at this point, are not even a measure of good will, they are required given how long this whole process has been drawn out. People believe in this project, if everything was on track, you wouldn't have to give them a reason to keep believing, but given the endless delays, you owe your investors that, at the very least.

Rule 5: I know this will be a tough nut to swallow, but if you are unable to consistently meet deadlines after a number of failures, you should be offering to repurchase XFC from original investors at the price it was issued. Inability to meet deadlines, inability to provide clear guidance, inability to provide a solid, realistic roadmap and meet objectives on time, reliably, and advertise thus forfeits your ability to continue to make empty promises and action and goodwill should be regained through Rule 5. Would it suck for the project? Absolutely, but there is a pretty clear line between being in a realistic development cycle, especially when compared to other projects, and borderline scam-like behavior, which we are beginning to get to due to violations of Rules 1, 2, 3, and 4. There needs to be consequences, or you will just go on indefinitely telling us a whole lot of nothing.

You can choose to ignore this, you can choose to respond and begin to address these. But after seeing definable deadlines suddenly, inexplicably replaced by "we can't give you a defined date", you can't even give a date range at this point, means you are probably just profiting off of the rise of BTC yourselves, while egging on people that once believed in your project but are now growing sour after an exorbitant wait time with milestones shrouded in mystery until threats are made, and the only thing offered is some vague empty promises and/or a screenshot of something.


Thank you for your feedback. I can tell you have taken the time to provide a detailed answer. Thank you for that. Rules, of course, as you well know, are not usually enforced on groups you do not have authority over.  Wink

Regarding your concerns, you will find the information that will answer those in our previous replies.
We are sorry the exchange and blockchain were not released quicker, naturally. We appreciate your patience. The time will, however, have been well spent in ensuring the system is properly working.
Once again, thank you for your reply and feedback and please do not think in any way I am condescending in my reply. I believe we have a similar goal and discussions will help improve the vision and execution of it.

Glad you acknowledged my response and concerns. Though, I will say, I'm not sure why you opened your response with basically a statement that you can essentially get away with robbing a bank, followed by a winking emoji. My rules are not commandments, they were "rules for placating investors", which, given the length and duration of this project, not to mention the consistently missed deadlines has rendered it into pages upon pages of disappointment after deadlines are missed. The fact that any and all deadlines have failed to be met, coupled with the evasive, unclear responses to basic questions, such as: "What exchanges will this be listed on?" is bizarre, to say the least. That is a question that could and should be answered easily.

I originally backed this project because I saw it being very viable, which, when combined with the professionalism of the website and the game itself, made it look like a solid project. The fact that you are delineating between "investors who only want to cash out" and "people who want to play the game" is irrelevant, as both have made this project possible. It's not a matter of lumping them into groups, it's a matter of them believing in this project, irrespective of whether or not they intended to play the game long term. Usually getting the coins on an exchange is all that is required to satiate the former group, while the project itself and its polish and vision is enough to satisfy the latter.

So what I am going to suggest is an updated FAQ responding to some of my questions with the progress you have made since the ICO, some of the challenges you are still facing, as well as providing concrete answers to some of the questions that have been posed. You obviously don't have to do this. As you said, "we have no authority over you", but if you believe in this project as you claim you do and want it to be a success, then one part of that is providing answers to the people that did believe in it and made it possible. As someone else suggested, even if this is a scam, most scam coins still list their coins on the marketplace. The fact that there appears to be so much resistance to this idea for fear of you either not being able to control your own in-game market, the price to fiat, or whatever else you have thought has an impact on it by putting it on an exchange, is highly suspect and isn't contributing any confidence to how the project is being handled. In fact, one could argue, this is the main primary reason that there is so much suspicion in the first place.

I think that you think that once your exchange is online, you intend to keep all transactions on it, and aren't that concerned about listing it on major exchanges. You seem to somehow believe that you will still have the volume and the interest by putting it on some obscure exchange that most people, including fans and future players of the game, will somehow find it through your twitter feed, a bitcointalk thread, or your own website. If you want this to be a success, you need market exposure. All cryptocurrencies that have been successful have done this to increase adoption. Putting this up on bittrex isn't too much to ask, and if there is some fee involved, you could easily recoup that fee with the price increase that would be sure to follow (after the obvious dip of early investors getting out because of the duration and burned good will). But I think the misguided illusion is that you think having this on your own exchange will somehow let you control the price, as initially putting it on a larger exchange may push it below that target. Trying to manipulate the price and not letting the market dictate will not lead to a lot of people playing this game. Someone will come along with a similar vision, while learning from your mistakes, and make it tie to much more viable marketplace and allow the market price to float, as it should...and they will "Apple-ize" your idea, i.e. making it better while essentially copying your vision. Maybe you care about this, maybe you don't. Either way, if and when this project does reach the street, word of mouth, on forums such as these, will go a long way in terms of adoption. You may want to think on that in terms of the longevity of your game, but maybe the short play was the vision all along.

Either way, a legitimate FAQ summarizing the answers would, I feel, go a long way if concrete answers are given. Obviously you don't have to do this, but if you claim to care then it would be a small gesture of good will. Failure to do something of this kind is likely to lead to increased suspicion and skepticism as it is beginning to look like you are really hiding something.


Fair and very valid points.      They made enough from ico to afford bittrex fee, even cryptopia would do at this point.

Once again, another articulate post with good suggestions from some of the commenters here.  There have many such postings with good suggestions over the past several weeks/months.  Unfortunately it doesn't appear that suggestions are really wanted here.  Apparently placating investors isn't important here.  Detailed answers aren't found here either.  I doubt any of that will change.

AND YES I AM SHOUTING! I MEAN WTF!!!! AFTER LEADING US ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE FOR OVER 7 MONTHS WE ARE BACK TO WHERE WE STARTED FROM OR EVEN MORE STEPS BACKWARDS. MONEY AINT EASY TO GATHER. I PUT MY HARD EARNED MONEY ON THIS PROJECT!!! FOR GOD SAKE WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS? WHY ARE YOU TREATING INVESTORS LIKE A MULE. I AM FRUSTRATED AND HAVE HAD IT! I CAN'T TAKE THIS SHIT ANYMORE. I JUST CAN'T

I think your comments definitely speak for a lot of the folks here, including myself.  The frustration level is getting very high.  Reading the promises made on Twitter to see things get rolling by the end of November and then getting nothing out of it again was particularly disappointing.  On top of that, no adequate reasons or new timeframe was provided.  Although at this point how much can we trust any more promises from the team?  Yep, definitely feeling as though we've been treated like a mule.  If you guys are bullshitting us, then you really just need to pack up and hit the road.  Sad

I'm beginning to think this is a scam as well. Even if the project is very far behind schedule there should still be some updates with clear information such as milestones. It looks like these guys ran off with the money and are stringing us all along to keep the police away. Can we at least contact the company that made the blockchain to see what has come of it all?

So I'm curious, what was the wallet address that everybody sent their BTC to? Was there a common address? It would be interesting to see if it was or not, and then go from there. Why not post to see what everybody sent to and then start tracking the BTC. Maybe the collective can find this/these persons.

We also need to take actions by steps. We must not let this scammers win. I am sure some people took loan to participate in this. We must all recover our initial investments back in btc

Step 1: confirm the address/ btc addresses our hard earnd btc was sent to
Step 2: ANX holds the key to exposing this guys. I believe they would have all the information we seek, so let's contact them
Step 3: Report to the necessary authorities and bring this scammers to book

Finally I don't care what anyone may say but if this scammers are not thieves they should at least give us a way to get our btc out because some investors myself inclusive are clearly no longer interested in this SHIT COIN

I do not know whether this project is a scam. The thread host will come out to clarify the truth. But there are two doubts: 1, the project is delayed; 2, the team did not announce the specific members.

the blockchain was supposed to be ready in september, that's was octa said in august, but he has since deleted that message, then they started saying soon, then came the november month announcement, they made it sound like it would be ready by mid of november and then the dates postponed to end week of november, now it's mid december and they are still quiet and if they ever reply, they do so in a retarded way, ignoring all of the genuine questions raised and answering only those that best suits their agenda, I have known no person as shameless as the 2 people running this forum and possibly the only 2 people working on the game, it seems like they did have a project in mind but only wanted to work on it after they took the money from their investors, they chose the most shittiest of project, counterparty, for their agenda so that it becomes convenient for them to cry about how inconvenient counterparty is so that they can keep us all entertained while they looked for a way to get out with our investments.

XFC coin team,

You are very close to losing support of the entire investment community. This is your last chance to provide concrete proof that this is not a scam. At a minimum you need to provide a way for investors to recover a majority of the bitcoins they sent you. Now is your chance. If you fail to act now, there will be no way to recover from this.

As someone who has been mostly positive over the course of this long thread, I will definitely admit that the project has disappointed me recently.  I haven't given up hope just yet, but I do share everyone's frustration. 

I believe it was all the way back around page 100 when the team gave us their updated "roadmap" in which they said this quarter they would release the new blockchain, wallet, exchange, mobile app, and improved version of the game.  Technically they still have about three weeks to comply with their roadmap, so I'll give them that much.  But the fact that they haven't delivered anything more than a screenshot to this point and will not even give us a date range on when we can expect these things now is definitely distressing. 

There have been several twitter posts and comments on this forum indicating that the blockchain is ready, the wallet is ready, and the exchange is ready.  Are they actually ready?  In my opinion and I assume most other here, if the product is actually ready, then it's time to release it.  Otherwise it's not ready and a deadline needs to be provided to all those who invested money in this project.  I'm sure all your partners have to provide deadlines on their end when something goes wrong and must be fixed.

Crypto projects should not be the equivalent of a roach motel, where the roaches check in but can never check out.  However, a full 6 months of only having the counterparty dex on which to trade the coin is ridiculous.  People who are not satisfied to this point should have the ability to move on, and those who want to do so should also not face condescension by the team.  It seems to me that if the exchange will not be done this year, then the team needs to set up a swapbot and buy out the unhappy investors.  That doesn't sound like an outrageous solution to me.

I struggled to read the last posts on this thread, and it got me really amused with all this charade. I find it hard to believe that all of a sudden a dozen investors have just registered on bitcoin talk forum and have decided to address their worries and upsets.
I find it more plausible that a very upset investor, or someone who doesn't want this project to succeed, has register 10 new accounts on the forum and it trying to burry FootballCoin. And his reason is complete nonsense. I read that someone whats his investment back in btc. Well, dear investors, I have a news for you: You have no idea what an investment is.

And about addressing this matter to higher grounds. Please try to address it to ANX, or to whomever you see fit. The way I see it, none of you is willing to make that research, and those are pure threats made to diminish the value of the project. Now, if this is the works of a true investor (or group of investors) then we can conclude we live in a mad world.

Building something for the first time may seem easy, looking from the outside. But once you start building it, many unimaginable challenges may appear, which you can only see from within.

I'm not defending anyone, I'm just stating the obvious. If you want justice, then you have to be the one who can judge right.

Hell these people wont even fix the wallets so you can remove the excess bitcoin you have in them. We've asked them to fix that for months and you want to believe theyve created a whole new blockchain. Please! These people have spent our money and have no idea what to do next.

Looks like you keep telling people for your last 12 posts.  Smiley Maybe, stop spreading FUD, take a time to read the devs responses and think about what an investment means in the first place. If you have any serious inquiries I could take a look into those for you. Let me know.
Good day to you, sir.  Smiley

I'll admit. I get a kick out of your posts. However, maybe take a time to consider your replies. Many of them simply sound like you're having some kind of fit. Threats? Come on. Surely, you've above that.

We all wish things moved faster in crypto, as in all other activities. But do we need to be reasonable? Yep.

If you've invested in this project, you should be protecting your investment, learning about the reasons behind the devs decisions and learn how this project can develop in the future.

If you have any serious concerns and want me to try and find an answer for you, I'll be glad to check. Smiley

XFC coin team,

You are very close to losing support of the entire investment community. This is your last chance to provide concrete proof that this is not a scam. At a minimum you need to provide a way for investors to recover a majority of the bitcoins they sent you. Now is your chance. If you fail to act now, there will be no way to recover from this.

I hardly think a project that keeps providing information daily for months and months is intended as a scam. Just think about it logically? Would you go through the effort if you were trying to scam me out of money you already have? Nope. Is there a working model behind the game? Yes. Are data and content being provided constantly? You bet.

You can go right this instant and buy/sell on Counterparty. Perhaps you think it's difficult. Alright. Then you can wait a short while for the exchange service to be in place. That's a choice and you'll need to make plenty of those if investing in anything.

When you invest in something, you hope the people making the decisions act responsibly and think ahead. Well, luckily this is what the devs in FootballCoin are doing. Will this cost you some wait time? Sadly, yes. Will things be fully resolved? Yes.  Wink

If you have any further concerns, and perhaps I can help, I'm glad to try my best to answer those.

Yes. The team is doing tests on the wallets, the exchange, the blockchain itself. Seems to be running smoothly.

By the way, have you had a chance to check out the game platform? https://game.footballcoin.io/contests.  Wink

In all honesty, I think you'll be pleased with the results. Wink

doesn't even matter now if you release an exchange, the sentiments of the investors have taken a hit, an investor is interested in the management behind the project, he wants roadmaps to be addressed and deadlines to be met, you guys have been an utter disappointment through and through on all counts, no matter how much rasons you come up with, nobody in their right mind would want to invest in a project with management as bad as yours, my money is lost in this project, it's time to to learn from this mistake and move on, anybody wants to buy few xfc off of me  can pm me with a price they would like to offer.
