The title really suits this thread created by me. I am aware that most of my posts are for bounty but this makes me know how those projects just trolling and scamming the bounty hunters that is also part of their community. Please take a look

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3259949.msg33960864#msg33960864

I meant no hate for Envion but for what they have got because of the bounty hunters ( $100M ) it's not that bad to keep up their words. For other proofs/infos you want, just let me know.

Sorry, but that's not what I had in mind. You're in fact very pro altcoin and actively advertising ICO's.

That was actually right and I am always promoting ICO's and been/being part of bounty campaigns. Maybe this giveaway is not meant for me but I just want to tell you that Envion was sick, and they suck   Grin

Hey there, flora_digitalis

I came across your post just now, and gave a good thought about your initial post and the other replies you gave to the other supposed "contributors". I'm mostly active within the Korean subforum, and I have translated several ICO announcements before due to the allure of "rewards". But as I get to translate these announcements, I must read through, digest and translate every sentence I read -- and as I digested these business propositions and proposed business models for how they'll reward the investors, I came to the realization (via first-hand) that these are blatantly scam/fraud.

So, I did this: I went back to each of my announcements (or at least most) and wrote a warning post advising all potential ICO investors to beware scam ICOs, along with major red flags to look out for (some patterns I've picked up).

Let me point out some that I gathered (I gather you can auto-translate my Korean text, but I'll also summarize):

* Anti-shilling my own translated post - I wrote that there are suspicious information that needs to be vetted, like publicized team/location info, as well as their marketing content (looks fabricated).
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3033545.msg34277117#msg34277117

* Anti-shilling my own translated post - I also wrote that there has been no updates whatsoever on their webpage, and there seems to be no developer team.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3031137.msg34270832#msg34270832

* Within my translated announcements, I explained why one needs to be extra careful with these supposed ICOs and that people need to look for these red flags, such as:
- Sudden extensions of token sale dates because of unfavorable market conditions or low investment revenue
- Amateur-ish / seemingly non-existent core team members
- Whitepapers that contain minimal/non-existent details regarding technology, use of funds, etc. or non-professionalism overall
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3033545.msg33621495#msg33621495
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3031137.msg33621151#msg33621151

* Warning against investing DRG token sale (on my own post) due to lack of any developer or seemingly impactful core team members, as well as lack of any publicized progress despite their promises
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3015952.msg33427273#msg33427273
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3015952.msg32303258#msg32303258

I think that's it for now.

Either way, please let me know if you have any suggestions for other future content I can share. It also doesn't help that our only Korean subforum moderator has been inactive for many many months.

Thanks for reading!

Edit: PS: I really like your intent. Months ago, I took upon this task of translating this Russian whitepaper for some 'healthcare' related blockchain startup (EHFirst), but as I dove deep down into the details, there were so many red flags, so I spent over an hour on their Telegram channel just blasting away at the community managers and detailing all the wrong things about their whitepaper/business plan. It's safe to say that they won't be succeeding. I uploaded a few screenshots I took for you to see (for enjoyment- I took them to share with a friend on how stupid some ICOs are):

Hey there, flora_digitalis

...

Thanks for your review request. Unfortunately I don't speak Korean. Do you have any other English posts for review?

I'm not sure if this would be the exact type of post you are looking for but I thought i'd pitch in and give my 2 cents (or should i say 2 satohsis).

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2834752.msg36166191#msg36166191

Actually these two posts are coming pretty close to what I'm looking for (finally!). Sent you 2 + 1 merit.

I revealed a SCAM of altcoin before the sale phase, saving some bucks of potential investors. You can see the thread below. Thank you.
