In recent times "fake" Bitcoins have appeared.

The very essence ot Satoshis Bitcoin whitepaper
    "A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution."

Real lawful bitcoins address has and always will start with 1
If it starts with anything else than 1 you dont hold a legal bitcoin but possible some altcoin with the price pegged one to one to a real bitcoin.
If it walk like a duck, swims like a duck, quarks like a duck, its a duck.
LN  for example is one such case. It has its own address structure, its own nodes, its own infrastucture, its a altcoin.   Lightning Network is literally a 3rd party custodian based banking system and has nothing to do with the satoshi whitepaper of bitcoin

The world if full with fraud and deception be careful not to become a victim. Hold legal bitcoins easy identifiable with the beginning of 1.

With a Blood Sacrificing cult i have nothing in common, can not identify with or want any dealings, thats why i quit crypto. Its a bit like a divorce i guess but there is better things to be found than money and lambos.



Any Bitcoin address not starting with 1 is fraud and scam Full (20 coins) Cryptomarket History

What? Could you kindly share an example? How can you send another coin via Bitcoin blockchain? This is impossible I think.

Sadly the article you provided nothing about the 'fake' bitcoins you were talking about. It was all about LN and information on LN which already half the community knows. It would be better if you clear up the whole situation by commenting what you wanted to convey.

I was surprised when I saw the title you opened and I started to read curiously as I continued to read the lecture I did not understand anything. What is the point of between the link you send and the post you sent? Am I the only one who does not understand?

I think Bitcoin is the most profitable. It is more used in cryptocurrencies So the first target of the deceit is the Bitcoin. You have to be aware. In my opinion, your awareness will protect your Bitcoin.

Is this really authentic? If positive then i think it is a huge problem for the market. It will create negative effects which can cause investors will lose their trust.

How can it be possible? Can you show some proof? It will be a very bad news for market. I hope it's just a rumor because i think it is not possible.

I don't it is possible to make fake bitcoin. You may find fake wallets. But the bitcoins doesn't really exist in the wallet. They only contains the keys.

This kind of thing bothers you a lot, since investors are running for fear of being robbed, the end justifies the means?

I did not hear the news that there was a case of fake bitcoins.  There is a limited number of bitcoin units and it is possible to track the path of each bitcoin. You can examine the transactions and find out where the bitcoin was received.

Bitcoins cannot be fake. Even though this post is fairly thorough, there seems to be no evidence or even an example to back it up. So, since there are no proof, this assumption has a high chance to be dismissed.

Thank you for your reminder, especially newcomers must pay attention. A lot of fake coins, which will cause you to lose a lot of money, there may be Trojans inside.

It would have been preferable if you could provide more details. I read the article too but seems like it has no information on your alleged "fake" Bitcoins. I don't think anyone would believe a Bitcoin that doesn't start with 1 let alone trading or exchanging it. But still I would like to know on what basis you are telling such things.

If this post is true then it is really very sensational news but I have doubt about the authenticity of tis post. As far as I know there is no fake bitcoin appeared in the market. So I cannot say anything about this as this has no evidence.

Thanks for letting us know about this. This February of 2018 I saw an official awareness post from Binance where they said scammers were defaming their official by saying them to send coins to some addresses.

As this crypto world is so much bigger and intense sad but true that there is a huge numbers of frauds here who never miss a single chance to get benefited by simply fooling crypto users by providing some eye catching approaches.
