As much as I support your scam finding abilities and always take them seriously, this one seems a bit off. Why? -> There are tons of white-paper writing authors who usually write white-papers for these low-class ICOs. Is there a chance all these white-papers are written by the same author in the same format?

Why do you see this "a bit off"?
A whitepaper is an important document of an ICO and it should be taken seriously and definitely shouldn't be plagiarized at all.
I changed the topic to "possible scam" until they came our with team members since it appears to be "under construction"on their website.

Also they are copying some content from project very similar to this one- https://parkgene.io

Their "Features section" is also plagiarized (for the most part).

Exactly...

You're being too generous with that move (IMHO):
- If the foundation of a project is fake, the whole project is fake as well.
