Even just looking at the investment tier from $0.01 to $1 per token in ICO phase you can tell this is garbage.

They are using fake team members on their website:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2812239.msg28923494#msg28923494

They have now removed the 2 photos when caught red handed.

If you look at the Founders LinkedIn, he has only had one job in his entire life and it is SmartGenie.io. He as worked there for 1 1/2 years but the website has only existed for 2 weeks.

None of the other team members have any facebook or linked in profile available.



I had politely requested in their telegram chat if they had a response to the accusations in the ANN thread. I got no response.

I then asked if they could take a photo of 3 or more of the team members together... or even a recent selfie of ANYONE on the team listed on the website and was immediately banned from telegram without an answer.



Also, after calling them out on Twitter a few times today, as of 2 1/2 hours ago they have exist scammed and transferred all ETH received to the smart contract to another address despite saying the smart contract would auto refund people if the soft cap was not met. The source code, they show on their website is different than the one used in the smart contract.

Here is the exit scam transaction: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x9ff4f0c88dd00585c8f22c4f534167acdca31c34243bd78669d1204ddcc7c0cd


Please do not invest in this garbage and please if you can report these guys so we can get filth like this off the internet.

Some people just have no idea how to research about a project before they invest and that has caused just so many people losing money and saying that crypto as a whole is a scam or whatever. When in reality they are the ones at fault for not doing research.

A quick image search have showed that the images are NOT what they claim the team members to be.

Thanks for the heads up. Clearly this project is running a fraud, and I wouldn't be surprised if they pull an exit scam extremely soon without any sort of product. If any project kicks anyone out of a telegram group just for asking questions, and getting all defensive, then they are most likely crooks.

Yeah he informed me about this project. Honestly I participated in their campaigns without knowing. It was my mistake that I didn't search a lot. Now I'm warning others to be careful with the project.
Here's the links that you requested.

Lesson learned. Hopefully I could find potential campaigns starting today.
Regards all.
