Working in collaboration with ICOethic, fake photos of the team in the next post.

Equiten ICO

ANN: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4541512

edit: has dissapear!

Bounty: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4666441

WP: http://static.equiten.com/Equiten-White-Paper.pdf (particularly similar to MONACO)


Quote
"Equiten officially announces its BOUNTY campaign. The goal of BOUNTY campaign is an advertising of the Pre-ICO and ICO. The total number of tokens reserved for the company's BOUNTY budget is 10,000,000 EQU. Upon the completion of ICO, 1 EQU will be traded on crypto exchanges at $2.
Start of bounty is planned for 2.7.2018."

(in other words: the Bounty could generate 20 million USD!)

That kind of assertion...

Plagiarism of Monaco WP

Oh God.. I just translated it yesterday.. Thank you so much for the heads-up. I have a question. It is better just to remove the translation or to write the announcement that the project is a Scam to warn others? I just closed it so no one can register.

It looks promising, and almost they cheat everyone.
this is worrying, how to detect this fraud. I hope this is the last case.

Thanks for the warning. Unfortunately, I mistakenly participated in the bounty of this campaign. As a result, I was lowered the level of trust... how can I do anything about it? Increase trust

marlboroza's signature is literally two posts above yours. Are you really in such a hurry to your next scam that you can't even bother to look up the last couple of posts in the thread you're posting in?

Good job as always, OP.

Interesting to note that, as suchmoon predicted, their site is currently down, and bitcointalk ANN thread is obviously removed as well. Thankfully there are still archives to prove that this scam existed, and people have been scammed.

Seriously, doing just a bit of research does wonders when investing in anything, especially in regards to the team that a project claims to have. The pictures that they took off stock images constitutes as identity theft, and sure enough, they also plagiarised Monaco's whitepaper. Hopefully less and less people get scammed by these ICOs, but that comes with community awareness. I tend to avoid ICOs altogether, since the space have become so saturated.
