.....and now, on to the next scam!  Great read

Once these wild west days in crypto are over, after the
Dust settles, there will be a ( small?   Medium? Large ? ) handful
Of household name cryptos.   The search continues..... ( Faulkner coin?)

WoW ya that was a good read lol I'm sure they'll make a movie or a mini series about it one day like they do of the scammers of wall street... "the hounds of crypto"

 I was tempted many times to join pump groups, but have always chosen to hold onto my "soul" instead Wink
 no I haven't made "stacks" of btc and yes I'm still driving a 700. car and have been scammed too many times to count lol Tongue I still would always laugh at the idea. I'll trade in moving markets unless I know for sure the coins trash, then I'll find something else to trade.

 I always hope the dev's are trying to create something special and it's always a let down to find out they were just a shell to p n'd in the markets. but if the devs are meeting deadlines and seem to be on the up and up... then I'll hold their coins (till I sense otherwise)

 I got burnt (ctz) pretty good a few months into my journey down the yellow crypto road and learnt quickly not to put all my eggs in one basket (as my roomy laughed at me he couldn't know that his precious doge was about to fall from it's perch) So since then I have been pretty good about only holding onto to so much of any one coin... so if I'm wrong about a coin it's never that big of a kick in the arse, it still stings though.

 You all make choices in life, you all have to look at yourselves in the mirror and no matter how much money you guy's made/have from your scams I would not want to have that reflection looking back at me.


 Anywho Thanks for sharing the story

No.

LOL. Fuck a all the people and things!

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

Too long, just read partial.

I have questions:

1. Does bitswift made by Bob's team? Or he just pumped and dumped?

2. How many BTC does he earn? over 1K BTC?

I love this story, but it is the conclusion that keeps me coming back.  Am I the only one that will never trade on bter again?   It appears so some days.

Quote from:  
We would like a sharper moral clarity to come out of this sad mess. We would like it if – at the end of this story  – the world would appear a little different than when we started this tale.  But it doesn’t, does it?

In this story we have seen both Swift and BitBay  get created out of thin air. We have watched both ICO’s get staged by Bob Surplus. Devs who have collaborated knowingly and willingly in his rigged ICO’s and reaped handsome rewards are still comfortably in their jobs, supported by their communities.

During this time, the market price of BitSwift is relatively unchanged. The same is true of BitBay.  So the altcoin market around us has spoken. It has shrugged. It is morally unimpressed.

The Bob Surplus story would make a great movie. You should turn it into a screenplay.

Once upon a time there was a guy named Bob.

The End.


Thanks, it was a good read, and I hate Bob!
You make some cool effort to keep us away from alt-coin scams.

I just have one complaint though: I was 30 yrs old when I started reading that; and when finished, I was 36.

I've watched Bitcoin from the beginning and can tell you Bobs no different or bad then all of the early "soldiers" of Bitcoin. They were all here just to pump the coin, hide the truth and make big cash fast. Replace Bob with Erik Voorhees, James McCarthy or any of the early Bitcointalk preachers and you end up with the same thing. The coins aren't bad, the devs are doing their jobs but the preachers and pumpers are only here to line their pockets. Most people are only using Bitcoin to line their pockets. They sure as hell aren't here because they give a shit about the ideals of Bitcoin.

It is a little like reading the forum version of "War and Peace".

There you have it. From the horse's mouth.

People who "care about bitcoin" and deplore altcoins
are the very same people who keep the racket going.

They're like religious believers who preach against adultery
yet run a brothel in their spare time.
