Reason of Accusation: Fake team & whitepaper plagiarism.

They used cartoon for picture with fake LinkedIn profile those are only 5 connection . That means just newly create LinkedIn profile.


Plagiarized whitepaper: They direct copy whitpaper content from well known website quora.  

 

Copy paste from: https://www.quora.com/Is-going-to-the-gym-good


Only 7 page whitpaper with no details information. I believe there is more plagiarism content. Right now I am on mobile just found it now. Whatever copy paste it's consider plagiarism. They steal others content without permission.

Although I am not experience coding but look like to me there is something wrong. They just copy paste others coding and never change details except Name , symbol and supply. I know open source code can copy anuyone but nothing change means developer of smart contract not professional.
Let's check  smart contract code

Code:
pragma solidity ^0.4.23;



/**
 * @title SafeMath
 * @dev Math operations with safety checks that throw on error
 * Project : Genki (GENKI)
 * Decimals : 8
 * TotalSupply : 100000000000

            return 0;
        }
        c = a * b;
        assert(c / a == b);
        return c;
    }

    */
    function div(uint256 a, uint256 b) internal pure returns (uint256) {
        // assert(b > 0); // Solidity automatically throws when dividing by 0
        // uint256 c = a / b;
        // assert(a == b * c + a % b); // There is no case in which this doesn't hold
        return a / b;
    }

Perhaps they copied from ForeignTokens but they never change it. I am not sure about coding case. Developers can confirm it.

Good job catching another scammer. They will never stop until the crypto market is regulated.

It appears they got tired of using stock photos and now cartoons characters are on the rise. (Kinda hard to face match them.  Grin )

But I doubt a smart investor will put any penny on an ICO with a cartoon character. ICOs using cartoons are automatically classifying themselves as a scammer.

If you don't mind I will post that cartoon on our cartoon thread.
