Hi,

Can you please elaborate why you call this a scam? Plagiarized whitepaper? Based on a line of SEC ruling? Or some similarities about common description of masternode? And you refer to the icotop whitepaper? Thats not unique either.

The description about the concept itself is unique and not plagiarized. Thats whats important about a project, not some basic ICO rules.

You gave the correct answer yourself. Yes, it's because of Plagiarized Whitepaper.

But an ICO which cannot hire a professional Whitepaper writer and also cannot generate there own unique content is rather a scam or should be a scam in the future as they are just ignoring the basic rules of ICOs and would surely not be able to handle the people's investment or grow it in anyway.

I understand what you mean. But does it also mean that a company in startup always must hire people to do there stuff? Would you not have rather that the people that represent the company also to their own work? We rather spend our money on developing the platform and server infrastructure for the project. Why call a whole project a scam based on the whitepaper, when all the text about the project itself is unique and written by the people that produced the idea and stand by it, but have some lines in it about basic SEC rules no one cares about and that can be find every where on the internet( we did not even get it from the docs that where provided as "evidence")? Are those the important whitepaper lines  to call the whole thing a scam?

When I was talking about the basic ICO rules did not mean I was talking about rules of a ICO itself. We are fully aware of those and nothing is ignored. I was talking about the lines in the whitepaper regarding SEC ICO rules.

Your entire whitepaper, save for the last 2 pages, is plagiarized. It is not "similar", as you put it, but exact, word-for-word copies, lifted from various places with no references or accreditation whatsoever.


Would you not have rather that the people that represent the company also to their own work?
Absolutely. But you didn't do your own work. You stole from others.


Stealing work from others is dishonest and immoral. Using someone else's work as a means to attract "investors" to your project is borderline fraud. Plagiarism will get you banned from this forum, will get you kicked out of universities, will get you fired from jobs, could even get you sued. At the very least, it is untrustworthy behaviour.

We never intend to scam or fraud anything or anyone. We stand by our idea and worked/working hard for it. I find making the statement that everything exept for 2 pages is plagiarized and therefore mark the whole project as a scam  a bit bold and disrespect to a hard working team. We will rewrite those few sections in our own words and publish a new draft. Are you willing to recheck the new draft?(not asking to removed your post, just for help)
