Name of project: BulpCoin

Thread creator: BrotherBTC

Project website: https://bulp.ml/

This project has 3 red flags going for it (counted so far -- I highly doubt the legitimacy of their "partnerships" as well).

1. Original wallet contained keystroke logging malware. This was first discovered on April 19th. There is now no wallet available for download, but in spite of this, somebody recently sent their masternode purchase address 0.1 BTC.  Roll Eyes

2. Most of this project's content was copied from the Dash features documentation.

Here is a link to their white paper (archived).

I've included a few snippets from both documents for comparison.

Dash:

Quote
Masternodes

In addition to traditional Proof of Work (PoW) rewards for mining Dash, users are also rewarded for running and maintaining special servers called masternodes. Thanks to this innovative two tier network, Dash can offer innovative features in a trustless and decentralized way. Masternodes are used to power PrivateSend, InstantSend, and the governance and treasury system. Users are rewarded for running masternodes; 45% of the block reward is allocated to pay the masternode network.

MASTERNODES

Users are also rewarded for running and maintaining special servers called masternodes. Thanks to this innovative two-tiered network, BulpCoin can offer innovative features in a reliable and decentralized way. Masternodes are used to power PrivateSend, InstantSend, and the governance and treasury system. Users are rewarded for performing masternodes: 80% of the block reward is allocated to pay for the masternode network.

Dash:

Quote
PrivateSend

PrivateSend gives you true financial privacy by obscuring the origins of your funds. All the Dash in your wallet is comprised of different “inputs”, which you can think of as separate, discrete coins. PrivateSend uses an innovative process to mix your inputs with the inputs of two other people, without having your coins ever leave your wallet. You retain control of your money at all times.

PRIVATE SEND

PrivateSend offers real financial privacy by obscuring the origins of your funds. All the BulpCoin in your wallet is made up of different entries, which you can consider as separate and discrete coins. PrivateSend uses an innovative process to mix your entries with the entries of two other people without your coins coming out of your wallet. You keep track of your money at all times.

Dash:

Quote
InstantSend

Traditional decentralized cryptocurrencies must wait for certain period of time for enough blocks to pass to ensure that a transaction is both irreversible and not an attempt to double-spend money which has already been spent elsewhere. This process is time-consuming, and may take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour for the widely accepted number of six blocks to accumulate. Other cryptocurrencies achieve faster transaction confirmation time by centralizing authority on the network to various degrees.

Bulpcoin:

INSTANT SEND

Traditional decentralized cryptograms should wait for a certain period of time for sufficient blocks to pass to ensure that a transaction is irreversible and not an attempt to spend twice the money that has already been spent elsewhere. This process is timeconsuming and can take from 15 minutes to an hour for the widely accepted number of six blocks to accumulate. Other crypto-currencies achieve faster transaction commit times by centralizing authority on the network to varying degrees.

3. The project has no team information and no mention of a team anywhere. ICOEthics questioned them repeatedly about this; they first failed to respond and then told him to go join their Discord server...

After discovering they had plagiarized their white paper and seeing they never put in a new (unvirused) wallet, its safe to say that this project is a scam... A masternode cashgrab at best and an attempt to hack accounts belonging to wallet downloaders at worst.

It is surely a fraud project by looking at the overall evidence, I think it is enough to tag the thread starter of the project.

Just adding archive links to all the details:

I have just checked one contents of their whitepaper and find that they copied nearly 80% from dash. Ridiculous activity by those guys. Really poor ideas to continue a project and it seems like a complete scam in my opinion. No team info, plagiarized whitepaper and what more we need to take decision about those scammers. Its nothing but a way of stealing fund from investors. Good catch OP.

If they think it's a fralde and I'm a scammer as they are talking, follow my personal social networks, you can ask everyone about me.
https://www.facebook.com/BiannoLimma

https://www.linkedin.com/in/fabiano-alexandre-854995b2/ (I've created some more time I've never used)

Whatsapp; +5527997242072
telegram: @FabiannoLimma

I never hid behind pseudo names, if you ask who is BrotherBTC everyone will let you know who you are.

My project was cloned and consequently thread modified few things, it would be normal to have everything almost equal to DASh because I wanted it that way.

They are stating that I throw coins every day, if you look at my Github you will see only two.
AdevPlus2.0 created in 2018 by the name Advertcoin and until today online, where the projeot is online until today and available in some exchanges and this never left hidden

and I put the two coins always integrated into the projects in which I can use them.
As in our recently launched platform:
http://prntscr.com/nrvbu4

and this guy who accuses me of stealing 0.15BTC from him appears and shows proof of that robbery, otherwise I'll watch over this to my lawyers and we'll discuss it in court

Did Dash have keylogging malware in their wallet client?

Besides, it doesn't matter if you "wanted it that way." Copying another project's documentation word-for-word and passing it off as your own is basically stealing.

That comment and negative trust was left in 2018, but why are you complaining about that now? You should contact that person. This thread is not about that.



Now, in 2019, you got more negative feedback because of your BulpCoin project - Also you are the person who created the post/thread with virus in the wallets, etc.
And if you are threating to sue someone just because a negative feedback, good luck with that, especially with the Brazilian legal system where everything takes 20+ years to move a pebble.

Name of project: BulpCoin
Thread creator: BrotherBTC

1. Original wallet contained keystroke logging malware...
2. Most of this project's content was copied from the Dash features documentation...
3. The project has no team information and no mention of a team anywhere. ICOEthics questioned them repeatedly about this; they first failed to respond and then told him to go join their Discord server...


We asked you questions on your thread, but you didnt want to answer/be transparent, and instead, you were very rude (remember that?)

Do you have a team? can you provide links to their professional profile?
Your whitepaper link doesnt work. Can you fix it ?
Hello, you didn't answer the question about your team.  DO you have a team? can you provide links, please?
Access our discord
https://discord.gg/utTnasr
NO thanks.. If you want transparency you would list your team on your website. Nobody needs to go to that social media for video gamers and scammers to find out about your team.
Soon, I am creating a strong team so that it can be released without problems.
 Wink Wink Wink Wink
What do you mean with "creating"?  did you mean fabricating with photoshop? If you already have a team why are you afraid to release information about them? is there something to hide?
I have nothing to hide, and stop distorting spoken words, have respect with others, this should be a policy here within this forum. When the time is right I will divulge my team, if they want anonymity it is not me that will take it from them.
When satoshi nakamoto came with your anonymity, surely you were not accused of anything, so when they have willing to announce my team, otherwise we will remain that way, whether you like it or not

Since when did I lie? I will not expose anyone if the person does not want, would you like to be exposed without your permission?

Search me before you go out accusing me.
If you look for it you will see that you had a case in 2018, but I did not steal anyone, there is someone named ICO POOL in telegram, he bought some coins in that amount, and with that value I listed coin at https//:troca.ninja, the dev of it.

he just wanted me to put coinin CREX24, but with the value I could not put the coin where in troca.ninja

I never promised, nothing to him, it was a goal that he did not give and everything was explained to users.

We're not accusing you as a crime so much as engaging in suspicious behavior, and your negative trust rating is meant to serve as a warning to those considering investing in your coin.

You actually didn't include the MIT license which Dash Core requires you to have in order to use their software (or documentation).

From: https://github.com/dashpay/docs/blob/0.14.0/LICENSE

Regardless, the fact that you had malware in your wallet means we're not going to change our minds about your rating. How do we know you won't revert it back to a malware-containing version of the wallet later? Ask your Dash dev friend how he feels about that issue. Sorry but your reputation here is pretty much shot.
