What happened:
The user johningreece is legit spamming the whole forum with his fake Electrum Gold wallet (electrum-gold dot org) that may contain malwares with the intention of stealing Bitcoins.

- Virustotal scan of the file linked in the website: https://www.virustotal.com/file/888933536e6ec63a660d4def4d2c1b46f0da9dc3a0827596e6c6bdd2eacb1704/analysis/
- The source code at the bottom of the page links to https://github.com/

You can use the Electrum Gold wallet for bitcoin gold  https ://www.electrum-gold.org <-- SCAM SITE DO NOT VISIT THIS SITE
Fairly sure that is just a reboot of the SCAM WALLET listed here: https://bitcoingold.org/not-official-websites/ it is even using the same "screenshot" (with some edits to the toolbar)

For the record, that electrum-gold website has a single download link that links to a .zip file here: https ://github.com/mysmsbiz/btg/releases/download/v2.9.3/electron-gold-2.9.3.zip <-- SCAM WALLET!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!!!

That "github" has absolutely ZERO code associated with it... https://github.com/mysmsbiz/btg

DO NOT visit electrum-gold and DO NOT download and/or use the wallet... you're likely to lose BTC/BTG and infect your computer with all sorts of malware.


Keep an eye on https://bitcoingold.org/ <-- OFFICIAL Bitcoin Gold website... they will announce when the BTG compatible wallet is released!

You can lease to whomever you want. And the 100% for fountain is not sustainable imo.
I suppose the almost 2M waves in lease to my node, are happy with their reward.


Correct, no ICO. Product will begin shipping on 1 Nov. The EOT token can be purchased at waves dex.


this guy has long intervals between his posts, it seems that he was not very active and suddenly in the last few days he became very active but his post style has not changed, leads me to think that he uses this account for obscure activities


may contain malwares with the intention of stealing Bitcoins.

probably that is his intention

Has anybody run the source code in an virtual environment to see where exactly it leads ? We might find details of the people associated with it.
No doubt the links are a scam since the Github source code links me to my profile.
Reminds of a similar scam spreading links to Electrum Cash wallet when BCH crap was out.I wonder if all of these accounts are connected.

Virustotal scan comes back as being infected so that is an obvious warning sign there. Also bitcoin gold hasn't even got an official wallet and hasn't even launched yet, i don't know why people think that this guy would have a working wallet.

He should get negged by a DT2 member as soon as possible so that nobody else falls for his scam.

His post history is just entirely spamming his "electrum gold" scam.

I figured i should let it be known that PRINCA is part of  the team responsible for LOGIC AI, Sonic Ether, Supertonin Network, Evolution lab, Padideo coin, Securivitas, Nebule, Stripple, Regrar, Bitcoinash and several other countless scam coins. This facade about about making several post today that either try to bust a scammer or show interest in a forum member's well being is a ploy to use reverse psychology to fool the mind of forum members into thinking they have good intentions on this forum. Its a laughable ploy by this known scammer (PRINCA) attempt to deflect some negative interest from their profile
