Bitcoin, the USD, the EUR, LTC, DOGE, all coins are a scam except "bluefirecorp coin". Best coin on the market. Get yours at the amazing price of $200 per coin.

Most would think it is a scam if you don't have any bitcoins. I bet your perception would change if you have 10,000 bitcoins.

Actually, bitcoin itself is not a scam, shame about the users

As I see it, if I was a country as big as america or as small as the uk, and realised I gave my gold away along with everything else, then realised my money was useless, I'd first put people off gold, by claiming it's useless, then start an online crypto currency, so that folks take the gold they were told is useless in the 21st century and sell it back to me for my useless paper, to buy crypto, if that dont work, they'll put it into the crypto, thinking they'll get more of my trash cash, either way, I get rid of my trash cash, that aint worth anything, and collect all the gold people deserted, thinking the internet will last longer than gold. Gold will last forever, the net? Only as long as.. The tree's are running out quicker than you think..

I guess it depends on how you look at it. Big holders who bought cheap and are looking to offload who say "Buy BTC because it will surely go to the moon" knowing full well that they have 20.000 more BTC to sell and that they will probably have to sell down to $100 before getting rid of everything is doing something that is.. borderline scam.

Bitcoin itself is just a currency and a payment network, calling these things a scam is just stupid.

 Can you pls add one more voting option to the poll :- " This Post is stupid " or OP :p
Bitcoin itself is a protocol designed to fight the centralized financial system, and I'm sure you know that.
 I don't understand why you call it scam , Just because the price is going  down at the moment, so that mean you are judging the legitimacy based on how much worth it has compared to fiat, totally absurd.

I like the concept of bitcoin , but don't think its a scam. And I hardly hold more than 0.5 btc at a time. So even if the price is 100$ it hardly matters. All that matters is what is the price at the time I use it, and I buy it to only use it, not hold on to it till price rises. Thats trading.

No Bitcoin itself is not a scam.

However, many of the players within the Bitcoin industry are scammers (miners, exchanges, etc).

The problem is not the bitcoin protocol , the problem are the producers of the asic hardware ( they remove the *decentralization* .... ).

Thats just like asking if dollar or euro was a scam. Or if your chair was a scam... Plain stupidity, a currency itself can not be a scam, nor can a physical item; what makes something a scam is the users.
Users with bad intentions are making BTC look bad. Good that they are minority and most people trust BTC.

No, bitcoin is not a scam, but the question we should be asking here is is noobtrader a troll? The answer to that would be yes.

Yes, everything is scam.

You say, Ivan:

No, is scam.

"CAN INVEST LITECOIN?"
No, is scam.

"CAN INVEST DOGE?"

NMC IS SCAM.
PPC IS SCAM.
FTC IS SCAM.
QUARK IS SCAM.
USD IS SCAM.

EVEN SCAM IS SCAM.

EVERYTHING IS SCAM!
