Look like OP of ANN thread had not locked the thread. I have seen OP left a reply there. Thread maker didn't diligence his own about that project. Team photo mentioned by OP is 100% generated from internet. Take a look below photo and zoom it, now see the part I have red marked.








You can see there is a spot and fortunately both spot is Sam. We can see that kind of spot only on internet generated photos.

I would encourage to tag OP of ANN thread if he don't want to respond here. I have sent him PM to reply on this thread.

I want to clarify few things

1. I am not directly connected to this project.
2. I don’t hold any funds.
3. I just paid for my thread creation and moderation.

I just locked the thread until the representative will provide me the proof that it’s not a scam.

Thanks

Thank you for locking the thread and pausing the bounty (might as well lock that one too).

I'm not sure what type of evidence they have to bring to prove that they are not a scam, I just don't see it.

2/3 of their website is copied from Fire Lotto, the rest - cold staking and cold staking workflow is copied from Callisto, substituting only Callisto with Mega.

You add the fake team along with the plagiarized whitepaper, that's whole lotta bullshit right there.

No excuses or explanations won't stop me to tag and flag any new threads created for MegaEther.

Good job and thanks for respons here. I don't see any way to prove them legit since I have provided information how they generate their team form internet. So there is no way to come live with their team. How stupid are you that even you had not checked their photo. Had you talked with them by live video? I don't think so. At least you should do your own diligence about team and plagiarized whitepaper. This is first time that you made mistake, perhaps second time DT's would not excuse you.

Nice find! Just look at a ll that lousy photoshop work...

It is tricky thing to create ANN thread for someone else, as it could ruin your reputation.
So better to think twice before you decide to do it.
Double check team and write notice that you are only the creator of ANN and not a part of the team.

Good catch, Thank you for this topic, I joined their Telegram group, and i posted your topic link in their official project group so that all members of the group are aware of your topic and are not deceived, but the group admin decides to prepare for the upcoming bounty, I don't know how long these scammers will continue to deceive people  Huh
