Their whitepaper is very small, with almost nothing written on it, and most of it plagiarized.

He added after we posted:



We have the whitepaper archived here:  archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20190314125744/https://vergedarkgreen.pw/files/WhitePaper-1-0.pdf

I bet he had no idea where he got the text from until we made this thread with the link to the original wp. We dont trust this project.

I also have doubts if I should leave negative feedback, because honestly I see this project as a big shitcoin. verge was a big disappointment for me, he is creating something worse than verge, I feel sorry for people who will use the shitcoin he is creating

I wrote to you refresh the browser. The first file was indexed before it was corrected.

Your link:
http://web.archive.org/web/20190314125744/https://vergedarkgreen.pw/files/WhitePaper-1-0.pdf

My link:
http://web.archive.org/web/20190315152815/https://www.vergedarkgreen.pw/files/WhitePaper-1-0.pdf

As you see, it is still dont change, but on server is correct file.
Simply:
Add to address www and you see thad file is correct (if dont use before address with www)

I fear that phishing projects only need to take one simple step, which is a reference, and they will escape plagiarism.

That not good in future, I will try to find ICO scam, so everybody can stay away them and don't waste time.
