Thank you for pointing out this weak part of our project.

To be frankly we having had some negotiations inside team about this, and due to security reasons decided to not use own names and photos first.
But understand that it is false decision and already removed all fake stuff.

We corrected team profile, made it is more open than before. But still without real photos and social profiles.
In our country we had kindnapping cases of people related with cryptocurrency. And team security is the best point at this moment.

And in our country we had many people scammed by projects using fake images of the team, like yours. So, there is no reason to trust your project anymore.
If you wanted to be anonymous you should had done for the day 1 - but instead you decided to mislead possible investors with your fake team members.
You trap didnt work, you got caught and now you are trying to "fix" it by replacing with those cartoons, but the damage is done.

For your understanding, 95% of crypto projects are scam. Doesn't matter show they their profiles or not.

Only one thing has matter - is what team do.

No one see Satoshi Nakamoto, but every one use his ivention!

Therefore smart people only analize what the company do!

Bye!

If I saved 1$ every time I have heard this excuse I would have a new car by now.

Why did you choose to use photos of random persons from internet instead going anonymous then?

This has got to be the least comforting or reassuring statement I've ever read by someone connected with an ICO.  If you're so scared of kidnapping or some other kind of shit happening against you such that you can't identify who's involved in the project, don't start one.  Certainly don't expect people to give you money.  And then don't expect scam accusations not to start against you.  

Have you not seen what happens when the major players involved in these things turn out to be ghosts?  The Scam Accusation section is absolutely full of the same sort of nonsense.  Bitcoin works because it works.  It has nothing to do with the anonymity of Satoshi Nakamoto.  Your project, on the other hand....stinks of scam.

If I saved 1$ every time I have heard this excuse I would have a new car by now.
Word.  Maybe even $0.50 per excuse.  I've owned cars cheaper than bicycles.
