They deleted my post from the topic, so be careful I think this will be a scam:

Code received and reviewing, everything looks good at this point.

Everything is ok? So did you see the torrent magnet links in the source code?

If not, please don't help this SCAM, thanks.

Dude there is lot of torrent stuff in the code, don't worry:

./magnetzd help
gettorrent <txid>


egrep -R torr *
bitcoinrpc.cpp:    { "gettorrent",              &gettorrent,            false,    false,      false},
bitcoinrpc.h:extern json_spirit::Value gettorrent(const json_spirit::Array& params, bool fHelp);
qt/walletmodel.cpp:#include "torrenttablemodel.h"
qt/walletmodel.cpp:    torrentTableModel = new TorrentTableModel(this);
qt/walletmodel.cpp:    return torrentTableModel;
qt/bitcoingui.cpp:#include "torrentpage.h"
...
qt/bitcoingui.h:   QAction * getTorrentPageAction() { return torrentPageAction; }
qt/bitcoingui.h:    QAction *torrentPageAction;
qt/walletmodel.h:TorrentTableModel *torrentTableModel;
qt/walletview.h:   TorrentPage *torrentPage;
qt/torrentpage.cpp:#include "torrentpage.h"
qt/torrentpage.cpp:#include "ui_torrentpage.h"
qt/torrentpage.cpp:#include "torrenttablemodel.h"


Still looking through the code though

I'm not saying MAGNETZ is bad or anything but I personally don't think tieing a cryptocurrency to piracy is a good thing.

Besides, a decentralized torrent client already exists in the form of Tribler. Good luck to both teams though.

They deleted my post as well instead of trying to argue in an open way:

Well I think its obvious OP just copied the idea from vTorrent: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=889481.260

If there would be a patent for cryptocurrency he would be sued. Anyway he is not offering any additional value like a whitepaper, proper scripts or anything which would justify this project.

I would suggest to stay away from this project and to invest into vTorrent if you like the idea.

We also sent you a message telling you why we deleted your post:

Hey,

We deleted your post because we don't allow marketing other coins in our thread, besides your question/accusation was already answered. I'll quote the answer here:

"Hey! Thanks for your question.

We already discussed this question, in fact our two project might seem identical but are very different. I'll leave an earlier answer here:

"although our projects might share some common ground, they differ in some key aspects. From what I read you guys are still trying to get an in-wallet torrent client and torrent metadata in the blockchain out.
We will also have torrent metadata in the blockchain (and are 2 weeks away from this) but that's not the core of the project (although it's a necessary step). The main objective of our project is get out of the cryptospace and directly compete with the biggest torrent sites out there by proving an opensource and blockchain supported torrent tracker website""

From your post history I can clearly see that you are a vTorrent investor and supporter and that's alright. But please don't come in our thread and start bashing our project, we are still starting and have a long road ahead and don't want to start being FUD'ed left and right.

Your answer is just false, you are cloning the project. Making a difference between "magnet" links and "torrent" links is just ridiculous. Everyone who knows about the torrent technology can confirm, that you are just trying to constitute its "different" but its the same.

And you are not offering anything additional to vtorrent for the moment, no whitepaper, no finished script, just nothing beside an "Get-rich-quick" tactic.

Well then Magnetz OP should not constantly delete posts which he don´t like and moreover claiming his project is something else then vTorrent
.
Instead of he should openly admit he is cloning vTorrent and explaining the benefits of his project.

From my research with new Magnetz release today,

Magnetz is just a lame attempt at scamming people with ICO, I've check their code and I can't believe my eyes, it is just a exact duplicate of old "torrentcoin" (also x13 algo) (https://github.com/torrentcointeam/torrentcoin) that died from dev ran away long time ago.

All of their 'torrent' code and UI, is just a copy from that old 'torrentcoin"

their torrentpage.cpp torrentpage.ui is 100% clone from the old code.



Fail much?

The wallet UI overall is completely standard and again exact duplicate from the old "torrentcoin"



Even the same mistake in bitcoingui.cpp (same exact mistake with setStatusTip and setShortcut)

Magnetz - bitcoingui.cpp

Code:
    addressBookAction = new QAction(QIcon(":/icons/address-book"), tr("&Addresses"), this);
    addressBookAction->setStatusTip(tr("Edit the list of stored addresses and labels"));
    addressBookAction->setToolTip(addressBookAction->statusTip());
    addressBookAction->setCheckable(true);
    addressBookAction->setShortcut(QKeySequence(Qt::ALT + Qt::Key_5));
    tabGroup->addAction(addressBookAction);
    torrentPageAction = new QAction(QIcon(":/icons/magnet"), tr("&Torrent"), this);
    torrentPageAction->setToolTip(tr("Edit the list of stored addresses and labels"));
    torrentPageAction->setCheckable(true);
    torrentPageAction->setShortcut(QKeySequence(Qt::ALT + Qt::Key_5));
    tabGroup->addAction(torrentPageAction);

Torrentcoin - bitcoingui.cpp

Code:
    addressBookAction = new QAction(QIcon(":/icons/address-book"), tr("&Addresses"), this);
    addressBookAction->setStatusTip(tr("Edit the list of stored addresses and labels"));
    addressBookAction->setToolTip(addressBookAction->statusTip());
    addressBookAction->setCheckable(true);
    addressBookAction->setShortcut(QKeySequence(Qt::ALT + Qt::Key_5));
    tabGroup->addAction(addressBookAction);
    torrentPageAction = new QAction(QIcon(":/icons/magnet"), tr("&Torrent"), this);
    torrentPageAction->setToolTip(tr("Edit the list of stored addresses and labels"));
    torrentPageAction->setCheckable(true);
    torrentPageAction->setShortcut(QKeySequence(Qt::ALT + Qt::Key_5));
    tabGroup->addAction(torrentPageAction);

More over, Magnetz ANN is very similiar to STABLE ANN page which is also one of the scam ICO project (Check the roadmap phrase) both ANN is also self-moderated topic.

Check here:
Magnetz ANN (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=900716.0) *self-moderated topic
TorrentCoin ANN (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=633546.0)
STABLE ANN (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=886555.0) *self-moderated topic

Obviously Magnetz so-called 'dev' is just a team with good graphic designer but know nothing about coding.

People should be investing in real project not just some scammer, but I'm pretty sure they have some good connections with people from checking their thread.

vTorrent non-ICO coin is what people who wants 'torrent on blockchain' should be support and invest in.

LET'S STOP THE SCAMMER!

I have challenged the dev of Magnetz we will soon learn the truth. -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=900716.msg9960532#msg9960532

He should have no problem on agreeing for my proposal: Since you have promised "BTC buy wall will be placed @ 733 satoshi when the ICO ends" so that any investor who wants to get out can get out. Could you agree C-CEX to handle this? That they will hold the buy wall for at least one day when the ICO ends before you get the BTC from the ICO? This way you can convince investors and hold true to what was promised and build trust with the community?

Unless he is SCAMMING of course.  Grin
