This is a very bad gesture for Genesis Mining.
Can Marco confirm if this conference really happened?

Also I cannot believe in Garza's tweet (http://archive.is/sgWol#selection-28581.0-28581.25) because he might have photoshopped this image to get Marco into trouble.
But if it happened really, then we need to be cautious regarding Genesis Mining.

That picture was taken at a very well publicised Bitcoin conference in Miami where lots of people were attending, infact this years conference is going on there in the next week or so.

It was this conference here
http://insidebitcoins.com/news/bitcoin-on-the-beach-miami-conference-underway/28955

Infact it was the infamous conference where Josh was due to talk in a panel discussion regarding Paybase I think and then at the last minute decided to pull out if i recall.

Marco was attending and Josh just came along and had a photo taken with him. Seemed all fairly innocent to me but someone here just likes to bring the photo up now and then for whatever reason.

Being in a picture with someone does not automatically mean "trouble". However Genesis Mining is not trustworthy for a number of reasons even if you ignore Streng being buddies with Garza. I'm sure referral spammers will try to disagree but GM is a good example of a service that's possibly-semi-legit but a ridiculously bad deal nonetheless.

Speaking of which, shouldn't it be 1+2+4+5+7 or at least 1+2+5+7.

Let me share my recent experience with Genesis Mining
Recently they decrease the payment dramatically!!! Compared to 1 month ago - now they pay something like 1/10 (or 10%) of what they pay before December 2015 !
So if you like to invest there - the choice is yours Smiley

 Why does hashnest gets 0/7 listing here?

 The first rule here says user selectable pool. As I check my gh/s at hashnest , I can't decide its pool as it seems.

 Hashnest is 1/7 at best.

Actually Hashnest is already considered to have a user selective pool since it already uses their ancillary pool, Antpool for mining via PPS mode. And more miners preferably seem to like Antpool and you can see for yourself from the total network hashrate distribution pie chart. (https://blockchain.info/pools?timespan=24hrs)

That is why Hashnest is approximately rated as 0/7 and along with me most others will also accept the same.
I am ready to change it to 1/7 in the next update if most of them does not agree with me. Smiley

Hi,

bitcoincloudservices.com stopped my payouts last year (2015) after about 5 months of a one year contract. Definitely scam.

But they still accept new "customers".

Nobody there who wants to make them pay?

BCS is definitely a scam from mid-2014. No one can do anything to these websites until the owner gets fed up paying their server fees, resulting in closing them down.
As you said they are still taking up orders and newbies are the only ones becoming victims of them.

From now on you need to stick to the above list if you do not want to get scammed any further.

seems their site become the ponzi, you can sure that they are collapsed within the end of this month, actually they are DDoS protected AFAIK, so the hack cannot be an excuse to suspend their service, if that happens, that means the site is based on the investors' fund instead of using the real mining.

out of ability to use the signature, i want a new ban strike policy that will fade the strike after 90~120 days of the ban and not to be traced back, like google

i am not really active for some reason

GAWminers             1+4+5+~7           => 4/7*= Partially legit based on criteria set forth. Based on wider context: more suspicious than a nun squatting in a cucumber field.

Likely Ponzi scams that have yet to collapse:

cloudmining.sg        1+2+4+6+7          => 5/7 = Ponzi (Founder's LinkedIn account deleted, Uses Weebly's free checkout platform)
hashcoins.com
and hashflare.io     ~1+2+3+4+7          => 5/7 = (very) suspicious (user selectable pool requires fee, dc pictures show no miners, linkedin profile doctored, hardware sales very dubious,..) (*now owned by hashflare.io)
Bitminer.eu           1+2+5+6            => 4/7 = suspicious (+ Pictures of their miners might be Photoshopped)
Miningsweden.se       1+2*+5+7           => 4/7 = Quite suspicious (*will remove as soon as I receive confirmation from Bitmain)

bw.com                1                  => 1/7 = Legit (1 - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=878387.msg13605117#msg13605117)

## Do you guys think I need to start a new thread to prevent the updated list from getting hidden under 76 pages of "out-dated" discussions? Let me know in the comments below.


Tips are much appreciated for maintaining and updating the list periodically!

Zeushash has stopped paying out to the miners! They have come up with a terrible excuse which is being displayed every time I click the withdrawal button. Undecided



Zeus s been receiving nothing but bad press since the day they started operating and it seems they deserve it. Can anyone confirm they own HalleyBTC?

What would be the point of proving that they own it or operate it? They advertised it directly through their main website, wouldn't that be enough to prove a close relation between the two? HalleyBTC is just another ponzi much like Zeushash's mining scheme that never paid out.

I see someone else has been updating the list; I dont really mind that, but please keep in mind the list isnt what matters most, its the rationale behind it. I fear having a list of "least worst" mining securities draws in investments that will still end up generating losses as cloud mining investment remains a stupid idea that  overall can not yield a BTC denominated profit. The only profits to be had are short term flipping or exploiting the greater fool theory.

Also, I have not been following the mining/ponzi scene for quite some time, but at least one in that updated list is incorrect. Cryptx was never a ponzi. It was a hugely overpriced mining bond that I predicted would result in terrible losses, but that doesnt make it a ponzi. Even though I was the most vocal, if not only voice warning investors that it was a monumentally stupid investment at that time, it scored 0 in my assessment, and that was appropriate then, still is today.  Much like GigaVPS once upon a time, and not entirely unlike Cex.io it was one of the more honest and transparent offers; you cant blame the issuers for investors willing to pay 5-10x more than what it could realistically yield in mining dividends.

Please keep it as it was, along with amhash it serves as a good reminder that good scores on this ponzi assessment list say nothing about the likelihood of producing a profit. A good understanding of the zero sum mining game and the economics of producing vs selling asics is a far better predictor.

btw, even though the latter website may still be up, bitcoincloudservices and minerslab have already collapsed. Im sure there are more on that list that are already defunct.

At last you replied after so long Cheesy
Yes I have been updating the list since the former one is backdated according to the recent trend I suppose.

Also, I have not been following the mining/ponzi scene for quite some time, but at least one in that updated list is incorrect. Cryptx was never a ponzi.

I support your statement but I dont think its worth mentioning Cryptx is legit now since all newbies will get mislead by the former controversies.

Please keep it as it was, along with amhash it serves as a good reminder that good scores on this ponzi assessment list say nothing about the likelihood of producing a profit. A good understanding of the zero sum mining game and the economics of producing vs selling asics is a far better predictor.

Should I? Or will it be better if I add a note beside them stating that they were legit before but suspended their contracts afterwards?

Note: I actually updated the list with my main intention to provide a helping hand for new comers who might get carried away with the outdated facts.

newcomers might get carried away by up to date facts too. After all these years, many people still dont understand the fundamentals of mining. Even people that have been around for years often fail to understand that as long as there is a profit to be made from mining, its going to be exploited by the asic manufacturers either via sales, or self mining; not their customers and especially not those customers' investors.

As for cryptx, scoring it as a predicted ponzi is simply incorrect, I dont see how an untruth could be more helpful than the truth. It was legit, even if it was a terrible investment.

And yes, rumors of my death have been slightly exaggerated Wink. Ive just been fed up with signal to noise ratio on this board.

The same happened to cointellect exactly last year: at some point payments got suspended and the ponzi scam revelead itself for what it was.
