Let this be a lesson to new projects, especially if you want to run ICOs. Do not do referral bounties. Or at least, do not make them so high and attach monetary value to it like $10. If you insist that this is a good marketing strategy, then please cut off the fraud from the beginning, not at the end. Actually, if you think this is a good strategy you are wrong. Do you want people who want your product or people who want your $10 referral tokens?



I really liked the idea to cut the fraud in the beginning. They should have done this in the first place, but maybe if they've announced that they will filter IP addresses then people would still find ways to cheat so they made a surprise at the end. If ATS announces $10 referral token then they should have expected multiple sign-ups in the beginning or they knew it would happen and it was part of their plan, who knows.

Anyway I received my tokens but my referrals did not. Those who received (I think 5 out of 15) complained to me for the value of ATS in etherdelta so technically all of my referred friends complained. So now I am still 50/50 if ATS is really a scam. I'll just wait till they have a running website and see if ATS will really rise to $10/75 ATS.

So I followed the ATS token for a few weeks. I gained quite a few tokens by promoting them on social media and registering with them.
When it came out to distribute the tokens, they came up with some lame excuses and didn't distribute any.
If this is how they plan to do business, I would stay away. Just words of advice.

im confirming today that i recieved my 535 tokens from authorship bounty last month and i guess they are not really a scam or would try to scam people but the only thing is when will be or what is exactly the date for this token to be listed on online exchanges? so that i could sell these emmidiately and i noticed also many users here in the forum are now selling thier hard earned ats tokens, but why they are selling it now for a cheaper price?

Dear,
I don't understand about Authorship (ATS) because i doesn't get any ATS token yet now. Authorship send me a e-mail, they declare ASAP you will get your ATS token. will i get or not.
but i saw somebody already get her reward.

It is not exactly a new lesson ... but you are right :-) I think companies are still figuring out the whole funding idea through ICO. The newest "trick" is to send useless tokens to wallets, that people can get as bonus, when they buy token during an ICO ... done by e.g.  Cryptonex. So basically throwing ads into mailboxes. Hopefully the companies will get back to the basics and will just try to convince with good tech instead of some cheap marketing tricks.

Do you guys know when the token would hit big exchanges?
All we have is EtherDelta which is complete trash.

They mentioned in their home page, ''It is expected to start showing up in several of them in the coming days/weeks.''
However, I don't think it is the best time to sell the tokens once it up on those big exchanges.

I have received my tokens. I have to agree that Authorship team did a bad job. At first they gave us coupon for 3 books, then they said that they are going to send tokens to people who had at least 1000 ATS from bounty campaign. Finally, they decided to send tokens to every person who's IP wasn't used more than 3 times. I can understand that they might be inexperienced but they changed their mind few times!

I can't say that Authorship is completely scam. It's established and the program is good as far I check it. The only problem was the airdrop or referral they made. And the one reason here are those cheaters. They already paid me and I got the tokens. Hopefully all those who made the airdrop in legit way may get their tokens as well. But saying Authorship is completely scam? I think it would be unfair

This is not an alternative account of anyone:

I never got mine. I didn't cheat. Only 2 of my referrals got theirs. None of my referrals cheated that I know of.
They are a scam and many people, like the ones that wants to buy more coins but never responds to PM's are paid from the ATS team. Maybe not all of you but most.

It's just make me sad when people call an ICO as SCAM where in fact, they didn't even invested/bought any coins. Guys, you are receiving free coins, and the ATS team are doing their best to send all your coins. Also, consider their part since it is a new project, and they are just aware of people WHO ARE CHEATING during the bounty period. Be patient. To those who didn't received their tokens, better luck next time. There are actually instances that 2 internet connections from different countries/location have the same IP, especially to those who are using VPN. So don't be mad.

But remember if you are abusing the camapign and you should not be rewarded by the developers, as far as i know that the developers said that some days ago regarding some participants didn't get their bounty

May be me and my friends are lucky, but we received our tokens. Only one my friend did not receive because he did not fill up withdrawal form.

The Authorship team have made a right mess of this but it's definitely not a scam, look how much gas the have paid sending out tokens, if it was a scam they would of took the money and run. I received all my tokens that I should have received.
