What happened::
I was contacted by an ICO called Lydian to be their bounty manager, they had some issues. I was contacted via telegram and instantly invited into a secret chat, which was a bit fishy since the chat logs would self-destruct after one day. Guess this was to prevent them from getting exposed.

So after being invited to a group chat (of which I was later kicked), we talked about the project and I took 30 minutes to take a look at their website. I instantly saw that they had supposed raised 10 MIl in 72 hours of the pre-sale. So of course after seeing that number, one would expect that they would have a pretty nice budget for marketing and all. So asked a couple of questions regarding my payment and if they wanted to buy some adspace over the forum. They said they couldn't do anything in BTC and then proceded to avoid my questions of "where did the 10 mil go".

So I decide to not take this offer and then was blocked by the person who I was having the secret chat with and I was told to leave all lydian's telegram groups, including their public one.

ALSO- https://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2017/09/25/as-founder-faces-possible-jail-time-an-inside-look-at-lydiancoin-paris-hilton-endorsed-cryptocurrency/#61ecfee97cca

That's a forbes article on how their CEO is abusive and their company is shady as hell. READ THIS!

This is completely inaccurate. You were banned from the chat room because of indecent content and false claims you alleged. You made a payment demand to us otherwise tactics like this would happen from your group. We will not deal with extortionists. And if you have anything directly to say, you can openly talk to our CEO on Twitter.com/GChahal and see how he responds with your extortionist tactics. Stop hiding behind a username. Behavior like this is not just wrong, unethical, but illegal.

Perhaps if you weren't a troll, you would know that the material written in Forbes is wrong and fake news media. Our CEO went on record to let the reporters, Forbes, and the CEO of Fobes knows he will take legal action. https://twitter.com/gchahal/status/927455427918430208

Before you start using the word "scam" be very careful. I know big words like libel and defamation might be new to you, but there are laws that protect people from extortionists like you.

And, also if the CEO is so "shady" why were you begging for a job and then made a payment demand for these tactics?

He dropped out of high school at 16, sold his first company for $40 million, 3 months after he turned 18. Started his second company at 21, sold BlueLithium to Yahoo for $300 million. Started RadiumOne where he has 11 patents for developing ShareGraph by the USPTO. Has been honored to be on Oprah and has met various heads of states. Has an honorary doctorate degree at 27 from Pace University. Named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young. Now at 35, the Founder of Gravity4 abd, truly believes in his mission of my own non-profit www.chahalfoundation.org

Now ask yourself, how many lifetimes would it take the average entrepreneur to do all that?

After just doing a little bit of research on your account here's just a handful of scams found that you have a history of doing. Before you say the word "scam" again, look at yourself in the mirror.

Are you retarded or just braindead? This is trust ratings that aTriz LEFT, not received!

It's ironic I'm being called an extortionist. I merely asked for payment in btc and since you said it wasn't avaliable so I didn't take the job. By rejecting your offer am I being an extortionist ? Now you should be addressing the claims that's I've raised towards you. Where is this 10 mil?Huh

PS- I simpled asked where the 10 mil was in the chat and then I was kicked and messages removed. How is that is indecent content? You should have addressed my claims of where the 10 mil went instead of banning me.

Instead of attacking me you should address these claims and prove your innocence.

Nice negative feedback you gave me. I asked for one week upfront payment and if you have funds to do other advertising. You said only tokens is avaliable. I then said that it would be nice to see if you actually raised 10 mil. My question was avoided and I eventually didn't take your offer.

I find it immensely hilarious you've attacked me instead of addressing any claims. Provide proof of this 10 mil you've raised.

If you know English you can go to the website and it actually tells you the $10 million was done through a "private-sale" like many other ICOs.

Grow up and stop trolling!!

Okay? Does that mean I can run an ico, say I raised 50 mil and advertise it everywhere? I've seen your Facebook ads with 10 mil raised and everyone commenting there is questioning your project.

Shit I got exposed.  I work alongside Lauda and aTriz.

(Plz note the sarcasm in that)



Also, as far as I know, Lauda has been 'sued' at least 20 times, though I'll be more than happy to go to court. Let us know where and when!   Grin

EDIT: @Lauda, am I jumping on the bandwagon again?

Grow up and stop trolling!!

Then fix this for once and for all (and to stop his 'trolling'), sign a message from a BTC address containing at least 1 million dollars worth of BTC. (or ETH)

Assuming this is the same, Lydian have also been spamming people's email addresses advertising their crap. They obviously bought a mailing list from one of the many crypto-related forum leaks (almost certainly this forum's hacked database). Sadly, this seems to be a common practice from these scumbag money-grabbing ICOs these days.

Also found out that they have started bidding for ad space on the forum.

Sorry made a mistake 9 slots @ 0.3 BTC

They seem a bit suspicious at least and are we going to let them advertise here? Can theymos block them from buying banner ads?

I wouldn't count on it. Most certainly not until they are proven to be scammers. Its shady how they haven't gotten to answering your raised question about the 10M raised.

Can theymos block them from buying banner ads?

I wouldn't count on it. Most certainly not until they are proven to be scammers. Its shady how they haven't gotten to answering your raised question about the 10M raised.

This isn't true. theymos will regularly turn down even bids of services he doesn't really like the look of or cannot be sure they're not legit. Maybe it's best contacting him about it.

Oh, never knew that. My bad here. I hope that theymos most certainly won't accept any of their offers/bids.
