Silkcoin is clearly part of a big wave of scams. They always include a high level of graphic design, flaky or non existent white papers, a promise of a decentralised exchange. Personally I can spot the graphic designer a mile off. They get away with it by being flashy and also seem to have an army of sock puppets that will slap you down if you argue against them. I expect it here too.

He worked on Numus, blackcoin, sharecoin, coinOpend, Coinmarket, EDGECOIN and now Silkcoin.



Too many links to post, go research, you will see the same style, the same promises.

I have gave coins that have the same game and design, I leave it to others to make up their own mind. I have no 100% cast iron proof but I think people should be notified of the obvious pattern. They need to do the leg work and decide for themselves.

Plus I got threatened by a member clearly involved in the scam. You don't threaten stupid trolls unless they are pulling your scam down.

You know, what are you doing especially on this forum is higly dangerous -calling people names. There are people with a vast resources and I advise you to check archives how did those people ended when they messed with wrong people here.

See this was originally a bitcoin forum and lots of people here got rich, there is a big concentration of people with money and they dont know what to do with it, but hey they surely can take revenge on others ,-)

I advise you to stop before you get into some real trouble.

Ok if I was invested in a coin and I heard what I'm saying I at least have a chance to check it out and be alert to a potential scam. After that I couldn't give a damn. It's their problem. I'm no Mother Theresa. But I do believe in trying to explore the truth. And I could be wrong.


All I'm gonna do now is wait.

You're an idiot. You could say any of the new altcoins are "potentially scams" without any proof at all and you would have a non-zero probability of being right in one way or another because nearly all altcoins are scams in one way or another... Funny though, silkcoin is one of the few new coins that has actually been coming through on what it promises (so far). You could find blatant and obvious scams to expose if that is what you are really after, but instead you decide to target a coin which so far has no reason to be suspected a scam?

Wanna bet a BTC i'm right? Or at least apoligise for calling me an idiot for highlighting a scam for people to avoid losing their money?


You know what, if I'm wrong then the coin wont be in anyway affected by what i'm saying. Do you think anyone wil care I said it was all BS if it proves not to be BS?  Give people info and let them decide, but your suggeting I somehow keep my mouth shut or something for the good of the community? Bizarre really.


The fact no one suspects it as a scam is why its so dangerous, duh! Lot of people gonna lose a lot of money.

So help a newbie here with very limited understanding of how scams work.

Yes it all appears to be by the same graphic designer, but how does that make it a scam.

Can you post some proof.


~BCX~

How many graphic designers you know? Does that mean all our "jeans" are worthless. Waiting for answer.

iTs hard cause on many of the scams they deleted the visuals. Numus looked exactly like Silkcoin, with exactly the same claims of decentralised store etc. You get used to seeing the same thing you can't help make the link.

check out a few of these scams that have Ben linked to the same webdesigner already who was involved in Numus.

http://cryptosource.org/coinmart-co-a-cryptocurrency-marketplace-for-btc-ltc-dgc-in-development/


what really sparked me on Silkcoin is there is a guy with name  'insertnamehere' as his I'd. have was a big cheerleader for Numus even when it was shown by others it was a scam. He popped up the other day starting a thread about how great Silkcoin wallet was. I saw the same design as past scams and it was pretty clear what was going on.


The funny thing is they also are involved in legit work. I believe they did the design for Cryptsy. It might be possible to find them.

So, you saw something that's visually similar and previous devs worked on it too and you start calling everything a scam.
Without any proof this thread is useless. The only conclusion of this is that you got butthurt in some previous alt deals.

I see not only at SC thread you are throwing accusations on other Alts too. This will not get you anything.

Your wrong but I respect you freedom to be wrong.

And thanks for providing me a chance to bump this thread. the mods deleted it when i tried the old fashioned way.


Throwing accusations on other Alts? Bizzare comment. the coins i listed are already shown to be scams, they have left with peoples money. What more proof do you need, hahaha

I know I am going against my own advice, but I suggest everyone sage this thread unless OP wants to post some actual sources. Quit bumping until then. Happy Monday everyone!

I now see you deleted your post for attempting to DOX a member I have no affiliation with. I put forward advisement to the moderating community to ban the user gorillajam for personal threats against members as well as "witch-hunting" while attempting to dox/post personal information of members of this board.

So you create a topic and in the OP, ADMIT that you just have a feeling.

Then, you say that if people want ACTUAL proof they have to do their own "legwork"

That you were just creating this topic to let everyone know that you have this feeling.

The graphic design is similar?

There are trends in Graphic Design btw. Lmfao

Last but not least, you go on to say that you have a feeling that these people have done work on projects that have turned out NOT to be scams.

OK
Entertainment at best
Waste of time at worst

But you definitely are nuts dude lol
Good luck out there man, keep on fighting the good fight lol.

The weirdest thing is I think you were attempting to help, maybe LOL
