Distributed Autonomous Corporation is becoming a popular trend. I predict we'll see at least one major scam related to DAC within next 6 months. Be careful.

Don´t see how this should work.

Decentralized Autonomous Corporation is just a vague concept with no strong theoretical background. But some guys are already exploiting this idea. First we had a lot of amateurs running exchanges, soon we will have amateurs launching DACs.

There is an already launched project related to DACs which looks very suspicious to me.

i got 5 on it

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

There are not a lot of projects which insist on DAC so I think every body know which one you mean.

But maybe you can elaborate on the reasons whith make looks this project suspicious to you?


(Btw I am suspicious that you are spreading FUD about a competiting project to yours for the only reason that it's a competiting project to yours. Coincidentally, your project looks very suspicious to me. But since I don't have proof, I will not tell the name of that project. Do you think I should make a thread to warn newbie though?)

Its not so much FUD, but is in C-f-B's best interests to warn people against DAC scams.
Part of the project where C-f-B is working on, relies heavily on the DAC concept, and if there is a wave of DAC-related scams, that will harm legitimate projects.

People have been scamming every type of currency since the beginning OF currency. I doubt seeing the DAC attempting to scam Bitcoins will come to much of a shock to anyone.

So which one are you talking about? Is the first letter an I or an E?

What are the elements which make you suspicious toward them?

^What he said. Maybe you can find something out just based on their code. If the first letter isn't an I or an E then yes, you are getting scammed.
