PR: Appian Decentralized Application Creator- the Secret to Making Big Money with Crypto

From stories of 10,000 Bitcoin pizzas, to people buying Lambos with Bitcoin: have you wondered how crypto millionaires ever got so rich?

It’s because they bought in at low prices before everyone found out about it. Back in 2012, Bitcoin was worth only $10. At the time of writing this it was around $6100. That’s a 600x return on your money. If you only put in $1000, that would be worth over $600k today. A small initial sum could have made you millions in the long run. These cryptos are quite expensive now, and investors don’t expect 600x returns anymore on the major cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Confidence and trust in lottery agencies has been a hotly debated issue for quite some time. With widely known cases of fraud, such as the one in Pennsylvania (USA), in which the host of a lottery with a prize of $3.5 million (one of the largest at the time) replaced all lottery balls, except those with the numbers 4 and 6, with heavier ones. Working with the assumption that only lighter balls would be selected, the host’s associates placed their bets on all possible combinations of the numbers 4 and 6. The results were as they expected, with the winning combination being 666 ensuring them a nice payday but cheating the general public out of a fair chance to win.

Ethereum fails at scam

Bitbargain.com

2016. Jun. 06. 16:32

Ethereum fails at scam

For the past few days, I’ve been actively staying in the #ethereum chatroom on Freenode, because a well known and long time scammer the community calls ‘Serbian Scammer’ has been active as well, trying to find victims for his scam.

The scam is very simple: offer to sell some ETH (maybe even post a few screenshots) and then tell anyone interested that they have to send their bitcoins first.

In these few days, me and a few other bitcoin-otc ops have tried to get #ethereum OPs to care about this sad situation, explain to them how to spot scammers but to no avail. The only time they ever cared was when their own nick was squatted on.

Today, after much drama in the main channel, finally the OP lifted a finger and banned the scammer, but still not for attempted scamming, just for wanting to trade. When I pointed out that the scammer was present with multiple nicknames (as user_234 as well as Tradres), a few minutes later I was banned from the room by the op ‘ZeroGox’.

Chatlog: http://btcfaucet.com/logs/serbian_scammer/zerogox_fail.txt

Needless to say, we are no longer planning to add Ethereum for trading on BitBargain. Let’s give some time for these guys to pull their shit together and provide a usable and safe wallet RPC and a community where a 24/7 scamming isn’t accepted.

For more funny chatlogs by the serbian scammer who is from now on allowed to take victims without any public warnings (as I will not be there to do it), see:
