1. if anybody has been directly (really) scammed by SC1/2 so far, it would have had a very big exclamation here in this forum

2. the source-code of SC is openly published and i think some talented coders have critically checked it, but there was no big cry about it in this forum (the standard-SC-bashing counts for nothing, this is fun for the popcorn-fraction)

1) Is someone in a ponzi scheme actually getting scammed the way, for example, Bitscalper users got scammed? Scammed/Not scammed is not very well defined.

2) The Source was received but months after the initial release of SC2. Noone knows what RS did have included in his binaries before the release and since he forced to update the bins every time he changed his underpants noone can say exactly what happened here and there..

Personally i think this post about microcash being malware is a bit exaggerated.. But it is right. As every ponzi scheme Microcash/Solidcoin has only the goal to benefit the owner or first few people and therefore i think people should be warned about it.

It surprises me that many forget that those who invested time, money, and energy in getting BTC off the ground as early adopters reaped great benefits which IMO is positive. The same is true when one invests in a company who's goal is to provide a product or service and said company becomes successful. Whosoever sows shall reap and in many cases more than they sow. Also those who sow sparingly will reap sparingly. This is biblical and natural law (ask the farmers). I for one have already reaped by investing in SC back in the SC1 days and have more than tripped my initial BTC investment (back when BTC nose dived last summer) so I don't need convincing that MC$ is on an continuing upward climb to success and those who invest now will reap more times over. All I can do is share the good news and help others do the same. The community is growing fast which demonstrates that many others see the potential in the technology.

Uh.

haha I didn't catch that

I know this says Gavin, but do we know who posted this for sure?

Also is the botnet stuff true or was that guy just trolling?

microcash.org/ (there they are, lol, at least they got first page)

And from that it seems "Microcash" is more of a description than a name, and since the term is already in use they would have no protection against anyone else using that same term as a name for a competing product right?

Everybody's search results vary, if your logged into a Google account (Gmail, Youtube) it will try to personalize your results get a complete profile of you and put sites you click on frequently at the top. If your not signed in, it will use what people in your area like to help personalize your results squeeze more advertising dollars from your visit.
Fixed for you. http://dontbubble.us/ Wink

Anyway, although I agree that MicroCash is at best an awful pseudo-cryptocurrency, and at worst a "scam", this report seems quite full of BS and isn't really helping. It probably just gives bad publicity to the cryptocurrency community as a whole...

Promotion is paying off, looks like another update to the original post on ROR.
http://www.ripoffreport.com/internet-fraud/microcash-org/microcash-org-solidcoin-hacke-2ca0b.htm

~BCX~


Since the developers of this code refuse to release any version of the software involved for review by the proposed community that will be using it, including any potential businesses that might consider integrating it as a payment solution, and defense of it is an empty statement. The stolen intellectual property on which it is based uses intrusive malware, it is being developed by an individual with a long and documented history of using malware and stealing the intellectual property of others, and is being promoted exclusively by a cadre of shills.

This software has only the promise of being the next big disaster, and a massive security vulnerability for any system on which it is installed. Which would be exactly the condition of the three previous releases of this useless work, released under the overall name SolidCoin.


As someone who actually runs various businesses I expect any software provider to fall in one of two camps:

1.  Open Source - it's down to me (or my employees) to verify that the software will perform as expected.
2.  Closed Source - I have to take the developers' word that the software functions and so expect the name/address to whom legal action should be directed if the software fails to perform as expected (yes - most software has clauses that they accept no liability but in most jurisdictions that clause isn't enforcable due to being unreasonable if the user has no way of establishing in advance the software's capabilty).


Microcash appears to want to be some sort of hybrid - closed source but with totally anonymous developers.   There's just zero way any serious business is going to gamble on trusting something like that to work: there's wno way to check in advance what the software does and noone on whom you have recourse if the software fails/scams you/doesn't do what it's supposed to.

This is so good I quoted it on my Facebook page!
