Hello,

I want to start an initiative as these cloud mining companies are fucking scamming and raping off bitcoin users.
Instead of fucking giving your coins to them, you can Invest it or you can lend a loan to a respected member so you can get your interest too and in the end, Cloud mining is like gambling. Invest >> Invest >>> Invest, Gets Nothing.

Once these companies cover up their investment and earn some profit from you, they will sell their miners (i actually don't know if some of the cloud mining providers own miners or they simply generate bitcoins to your account) and earn out of you.

Instead of giving the coins to these scammers, help a poor guy and give him a one time meal, you will happy from inside and blessed for sure. Try it if you doubt.

A user before started this and so, I would like to start it too!
Please do not invest in Cloud mining sites..

Everything which appears golden, isn't gold!

Not necessarily every cloud mining company is a scam. For example, ghash.io is legit.

Mining from companies that have proof of hashpower (known pool, signed addresses, service name in coinbase text) are the only ones that can be trusted, and even then, they still need extra consideration. If there is no proof of hashpower, it's clearly not a real cloud mining provider.

I have recently become active again after a long period of inactivity. Cryptographic proof that my account has not been compromised is available.

Somebody say that could mining is another kind of Ponzi,maybe,because of continuously rising difficulty,your hash would become unprofitable. That's a point, however Cloud Mining could be a good solution for some who didn;t good at managing miner.

Everything which appears golden, isn't gold!

First of all, as others pointed out, not all cloudmining services are ponzi scams. Most are, but there are exceptions. See the link in my sig to learn more.
Of course, that does not mean at all that  those few legitimate services are generally profitable,  because they are not.

What I take more exception with however, is your proposed alternative. Lending bitcoins is generally an even worse idea than (cloud) mining. Its hard to see why a legitimate borrower would want to borrow bitcoins, considering its volatility. Most investments and costs are still fiat denominated, so the exchange risk is enormous for a borrower, he might see his debt double or triple in mere months.  The sad reality is that most of these of borrowers will end up using the BTC for cloudmining ponzi's (and will default on their loans when said ponzi collapses), gambling (same thing, you might as well gamble yourself), as a way to short sell bitcoin (probably resulting in a default  if BTC price goes up significantly) or plain old scamming the lenders by taking out ever bigger loans, increasing their credibility rating each time, until one day, they run. Cloudmining is usually a bad idea, lending out BTC an even worse one.

As for 'investing'; there is pretty much nothing you should even consider investing BTC in. Out of 100's or 1000's of IPO and scheme's Ive seen over the years, I can name precisely ONE that actually returned substantially more to its investors than it collected (asicminer). There are plenty of BTC related companies  I would like to be able to invest in (bitpay to name just one), but none of them raise capital through BTC, for the same reasons explained above.

In the end, bitcoin itself is your investment. Dont try to 'grow' it, you dont do that with an investment in gold or silver either.  Put it in a cold wallet and hang on to it. Thats the only truly sensible thing you can do with it, besides using it for buying stuff.

I consider myself a lucky one, since i managed to make a ROI in about 10 months (small investment, though) through a cloud mining company and when i was ready to make some profit, BOOM!!! Same old story about hacking etc. No more payouts, and many people crying over their lost btc.

I am not complaining though, because i was told that i was probably entering a "ponzi" scheme. So i knew i was taking a risk.

Now, i know for sure that i will never spend any btc again for cloud mining.

Not necessarily every cloud mining company is a scam. For example, ghash.io is legit.

Ghash.io are the biggest scammers of them all, they charge over 80% in maintenance fees, they quote a USD per GHS per month price and charge you for every single share you put in. How many other sites do you pay for cloud mining and loose BTC instead of gaining it. Oh yea every scam site that stole bitcoins. There is nothing ethical or legit about this company its another unethical business just like the rest. the difference between Ghash.io/Cex.io and the other scam sites, Ghash.io fucks you in the ass with no lube and just keeps on doing it over, and over and over. they flood you with statistics, and numbers that do not calculate. But in the end they are no better than sites like PBmining. At least sites like him closed their doors and eventually stopped stealing bitcoins. Ghash steals you BTC every day.

Ethical/Moral != legit.
They have their own mining equipment. There is proof of their mining and names of the owners are publicly exposed.
Blockchain.info has their address tagged and you can see whenever they mine a block. Almost every other cloud mining "companies" don't have that.

I've nowhere said that they have moral policy, and do not mean to get in this discussion.

What makes his claim even more ridiculous is the fact he fails to see that while cex.io sets monthly fees for their contracts (and did so ages ago and actually lowered them several times without any contractual obligationto do so), it doesnt set contract prices, the market does. Their contracts trade freely, they cant help if morons are charging and paying ridiculously high prices that can never turn a profit.

You can even take it one step further, if they were crooks, what on earth is preventing cex.io from dumping a bazillion more GH on to that market? For those prices, its a no brainer to do so, regardless if you have the hashrate to back it up (and they probably do, or could easily obtain them).

I used to cloud mine and reached roi in about 2 months, with a small investment of $1000. Managed to turn it into a profit, but it was back when Bitcoin was trading for $500 and cloud payouts were much higher. Since October cloud sites are dropping like flies and the payouts are much lower, so do your own research.
