Umm, how about the very name itself is stolen intellectual property? Yup, MicroCash is copyrighted and a registered trademark of another business.

Do you have a link?

Sure: http://www.uniquepokerchips.net/Micro-Cash/ for the google-challenged, ranked as the seventh most popular hit.

Number one is the http://www.microcash.nl/ payment processing service based in the Netherlands, sorry I can't offer more details, Dutch is not one of the languages that I speak. But there is certainly some legal looking language concerning their business use of the name.

Naughty little ShortBus monkeys got caught stealing again!

It's not a scam, its a very high risk investment that you can't get back

The first one is not a business name.  The second one - how are you sure they have an international trademark?

Making accusations we can't back up makes us no better than him.

Really? A company that has been using that trade styling for 20 years and you want to split hairs about it? No, number 2 trumps ShortBusCoin and their Next Big Thing by a mile. The poker chip guy doesn't have it as a company name, he has it as a service mark, no different than what MicroCash the ShortBusCoin version intends, except he has them beat on first use, on trademark application, and on recognized service mark.

At the very least, and even if you are an RS cheerleader you have to admit that this was piss poor due diligence to pick a name and roll out the shill machine to promote it withour even looking at the first 5 lines of a google search!

is that how it works? use someone else's name and then check if its protected?

wouldn't it be better to just have an original idea once in a while?

Wait... isn't it all brain trust guaranteed professional super-secret open source wonder-code just like ShortBusCoin? Why would they need to remove any references to bitcoin?

Oh, I get it, they stole that code too!

Now come on! You aren´t going to suggest just because they have stolen something they might be untrustworthy, are you?

Grab the free available code, put it into a closed source projects and reject to give any credit to the original authors and in case you open source your program you remove all copyrights and references to the original owners. Thats stealing.

Nachtwind- you could add to your wonderful description "have your use of the misappropriated code blocked by the very entities whom you took it from after trying to apply your copyright to works already protected under license from the very people you took it from."

The most straightforward answer to this question is:

MicroCash is a scam because of the very people behind it. They are proven scammers, liars, sociopaths and delusional nutburgers. Any attempt to flog a new crypto-anything from these fools will be as tainted with scammishness as every other thing they have presented to the world.

@kettenmonster

I looked all in Solidcoin and could not find that anywhere in the code.

/end
Could be they compiled it without debug infos.  Grin
