I have a question for those who think that DeepOnion is a scam:
What do you think about the features DeepOnion has? DeepVault for instance?

You realize that "feature" has been in bitcoin for years, right?

I just went on their website and it looks strange too... I had never heard about this project before. The first few pages look legit but when you start looking for their team a weird window pops open and you cannot really find them...

There is no team.

That's not really a huge issue in my book. 

The fact that they're pretending there is...

I don't get the point of this thread still being open. Hasn't Deep Onion proved they are not a scam by the amount of time they have been around for? I get that some people disliked them at the start for the way they went about things with there acceptance to the airdrop rules. But they were only trying to root out all the scammers etc. I am not in the Deep Onion airdrop but i have had a look at there forum and it looks pretty cool, so good on them i say!

No.  The longer the con the more money they can make.

Thank you very much for this, you did a good thing.
It's up to them to believe and not to believe. 

I also think this is a scam.

Deep Onion seems more and more like a ponzi scheme each passing day. The latest changes basically say to everyone who holds coins that they shouldn't sell because they'll profit more and to new investors they have to buy to profit, it is all pushing a false economy for developers to dump their own coins.

I've been part of the airdrop for quite a while. Also the online wallet (onionwallet.ch) was developed by me. I don't know why but some day a user told me that my signature was gone, of course I got blacklisted. So I decided to sell most of my coins, which gave me quite some money, so I cannot complain. Right after that I got banned in the forums... My posts (even helpful ones) got deleted in the ANN thread.

The project is not transparent at all. Any unwanted comment will be deleted. Every feature in DeepOnion is a copycat.
  • Bitcoin with Tor already exists in better projects (eg Verge).
  • DeepVault already exited.
  • DeepSend is a technology that they will adapt 1 to 1, as announced in their newsletter.

They invested a lot of time in their forum, but no real development to the coin has been made.

Marketing is amazing, some other teams could really learn from DeepOnion.

Although, I would not say it is a scam. I also don't care about premining and so on. Someone put a lot of time in the project, for me it is ok, if they earn money. Whoever puts work in something, should get something for it.

But I would say the project will not be successfull, because:
  • I don't think there is much blockchain knowledge available
  • They update the forum with features, because they don't know how to improve the coin
  • Way too less github activity
  • Not transparent at all, to many deleted posts and banned users
  • Due to the amount of banned users, the project will never reach enough people to be successfull
  • They missed to get listed on a good exchange, although the community was always asking for it. Now their only exchange is going to shut down its service, if they won't find another (good) exchange by the end of the year, the coin is dead anyways.


However, I don't think it is a scam, but if you are looking for something successfull, move on.

Passion.

there is definately something not quite right about it. If you joined at the beginning of the airdrop happy days as you prob have a lot of coins but I joined yesterday then saw that you have to have 100 onions to qualify. Plus you only get a percentage of what is in your wallet. If that doesn't seem like a motivator to get new people to buy more coins I don't know what is.

This coin is just about the airdrop, nothing else. There are lots of privacy coins out there, not sure why this one is any better. The only thing that its got going for it if that its free and things that have value are rarely given away for free.

The thread is open becasue the author wants it open.
Scams are permitted to be posted here too.
This is a scam site.
Further more since a set amount of time passed on a pyramid scheme wen by does not make it legit.

The little puppet account army is really reaching.. poorly and in vain.

People who get it and the ideology and what make s scam will avoid it.
Anyone with a shred of integrity.

And the greedy profiteers with out any integrity will have their ears perk up about the info of *some people not getting their fake "airdrop" coins.

It's not like there is just 1 problem with this coin.. there is a long list.
But hey if you think you will make some BTC dust off it then it's ok to support it then right ?

@simongoat
There was nothing for free.
You all were enlisted and hired to do a job and put to work.. advertising.
You knowingly joined a SIG campaign fraudulently masqueraded as an "airdrop".
There was nothing free here.

Well except for the dev's who premined coins then kept them then staked them.
They got "free" money  Cheesy

FUD first & ask questions later™

You are right. Bitcointalk became a holly grail for scammers. Hundreds om scam projects and ICO's are announced daily here. The only purpose of all that projects and ICO's, is to steal peoples hard owned money. People who have been with the crypto market for long time now, will understand these schemes of scams very easily but the noobs who are easily blinded by vaporware and false claims will fall for it. Do you remember the quote of Satoshi "Decentralized = Better" I think the opposite: "Decentralized = Scam"

Fortunately I did my homework and decided not to invest in this project which focuses merely on marketing than tech development. The so called "airdrop" is actually a bounty. The coins are not "free" at all. You have to spend quite a lot of your time and energy on their campaign to get the coins. There're way better projects than this one. Glad I didn't fall for it.

This is the best post of the whole thread I think, which frames the situation for what it is. I have to say that the recent change of rules of the airdrop have been a big step in the right direction, opening the project to a bigger community. In the procedure it very much resembles airdrops like Bitcore or Byteball now. It is still keeping the signature campaign (not really necessary any more in my view, and quite annoying) but unlike Bitcore and Byteball it doest unload tons of free coins to BTC whales, which to some extent is even more annoying if you think at.

This lack of transparency is really worrisome. Decentralization is a good thing, but having anonymous devs with a lot of power is the opposite of that, and even worse than some kind of centralization where you know who's in power (so the community can kinda keep them in check if things start going in the wrong direction).

The real point is what the devs go with that power. If they use it to abuse their own community, he won't have a community for long...

I don't think that  they're scam. What I do know is that they make you sweat for their bounties and getting access to DeepOnion is not easy (though they do have giveaway bounties (smallbounties)).
I will do more research on the Team ... now that I know about your article..

Yes that's true! some of my friends has deep onion token and trade it to nova with no problem and earn cash, so this is not a scam and worth of investment also, and has potential in market because of it's value now.

Transparency is important these days.
I bought in a while ago as I liked the coin basics and the marketing but sold after a few days as it all seemed a bit too shady and digging deeper revealed some stuff that worried me.
Look how well the Electroneum ICO did. There were big tech questions earlier on but they were ultra transparent and I think that was a big factor. It sold out 40 million before release.
