@cityhunter441_twitter OneCoin is a complete scam. It appears to be a Ponzi scheme and I am sure that its principal people will end up in jail very soon. See cointelegraph.com/news/one-coin-much-scam-onecoin-exposed-as-global-mlm-ponzi-scheme.

They are preying on people who know no better and claim that OneCoin is a cryptocurrency when it is no such thing. The key point of cryptocurrencies is that no single organization controls them, and they are cryptographically secured. None of that is the case for OneCoin. You just have to "trust them", and give them large amounts of your money for "training". https://www.onecoin.eu/. It is really quite revolting. They continually conflate themselves with Bitcoin and use media articles about Bitcoin (like Richard Branson talking about Bitcoin) as their own promotion.

If you or any of your friends and family are involved with OneCoin, I beg you to get them out. They will lose all of their money.

The "glitz" of the "events" should tell you everything you need to know. This is not how a respectable business man behaves. It is a cult of personality, and the polar opposite of cryptocurrency.

Ethereum is being used by IBM, Microsoft, Deloitte, Canonical, UBS and many more serious companies. It is a technology platform.
@alexvandesande Do watch that video above. It makes me feel sick.

Yes, and it is happening all over the world. They claim to be "the fastest growing business in the world". Hundreds and hundreds of local meetings. They are finding millions of victims who know little more about the technology than the words cryptocurrency and Bitcoin. It is a disaster. People are handing over thousands of dollars that they can ill afford to spare to these criminals.

It’s not new. I remember the first time I saw mentions of bitcoin in Brazil was some assholes selling a “mining” software that was nothing but a pyramid scheme. You’d download a clone of the client, get nothing by mining on the CPU of course, but get “points” for finding new people to buy the software. Then they would conflate the gains with their software with the bitcoin price rises...
It’s unfortunate that those people just take the “it makes money” part of our technology and sell it to people who don’t know better
