What happened: FLEXSTAY has plagiarized its whitepaper from a project called PingPaid.

Reference Link: https://flexstay.io/whitepaper.pdf

Announced by: flexstay

ANN: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5150999

  • Almost 100% plagiarized whitepaper
  • Team members identity cannot be verified at this moment, I couldn't find anything about them outside of their project
  • Their website is just 3 weeks old

Nice catch OP. I knew there was something suspicious with them; that team with outdated images and a CEO with an new LinkedIn profile with just 1 job experience is very strange.
I dont think they will be able to provide any images or videos of the team as we requested.

Same.

I'm not sure if you noticed but before they locked their topic, they deleted two of your posts + one of mine.

Can't say it was because they were negged for their copy-pasted whitepaper or because asking for high-res photos and a video was too much. Either way, case closed.  Grin
