Good job exposing them

This is a serious scam attempt. White paper looks like some science course work on Hydrogen projection

Look the ICO has already started  Grin


Scammer bitcoin Address, I hope no one sends money in there,

The twitter profiles was just created on July with just one tweet about the launch of the ICO

So all of this Is meant to prove a scam? On the white paper front page it does say launch edition as it's not yet 100% ready, it was started by one of our colleagues and yet to be finished...
Just cause there is some copied parts in the white paper dont assume scam. The issue can easily be resolved, just mention it...

Were not educated on how ICO's should run but I guess you guys have the right to detest what we aim for...
Thank you for your response/feedback/accusations

I researched the team members (which are just two people, who according to their linkedin studied at the same college, I suppose they must be friends) and found nothing. About the project, there are already dozens of energy related projects in the crypto world. I don't know why anyone would invest in this kind of project... and in every country of the world governments regulate this energy sector, It is not simple to enter the energy sector and be successful

Just cause there is some copied parts in the white paper dont assume scam. The issue can easily be resolved, just mention it...

why the hell would you need to copy/paste other projects?

As far as I could see in the references it has some copied parts from study text we handed to our staff, this was only intended to be used for a reference but our staff member were not aware of this and used parts of the study text in the white paper.

But referring to this accusation, a white paper does not warrant scam accusations as it's an easy mistake that could have been rectified right away if somebody had mentioned it.

Yes we are aware of the fact we need a OfGem Licensing, this will be aquired over the next few months. Due to the nature of what we are achieving and not having patented our projects we cannot expose the entire team as they are legally binded to maintain confidentially.

Its not just some, all the content is plagiarized.
plagiarism of white paper is what scam ICOs have been doing here and its very unprofessional.

Look at your white paper again. Do you think with that you really deserve any investors to back you up.

I researched the team members (which are just two people, who according to their linkedin studied at the same college, I suppose they must be friends) and found nothing.

Unfortunately, nothing stops scammer to post a few pics of their friends or even of themselves knowing that nobody will go through all the trouble of tracing them back, especially since those low-level scams are usually in the hundred $ range.

Yeah, the picture might be real, the people might be real, but it's still a scam.
A lot of people saw Charles Ponzi in real life, flesh and bones.

Just cause there is some copied parts in the white paper dont assume scam. The issue can easily be resolved, just mention it...

why the hell would you need to copy/paste other projects?

Because anything that would go beyond "buy this ICO great such thing soon moon is beyond them."

Looking at their whitepaper and website, the only things that seem to have not been written by some illiterate monkeys are the plagiarized paragraphs.

I've stopped counting the times they've managed to use "a" instead of "an" before a vowel.
