*DMYF does not endorse gambling. We promote LuckyGames as a fantastic exchange allowing for zero-fee market-rates 100 cryptocurrency exchange.
We simply reserve the right to express the emotion, symbolised by o_O.
So, we were like, “why not finalise the draft of...”:
…where we (prophetically!) mentioned…:
and Cointiply is like…
…the first thing that comes to our mind is a visitor’s comment and our reply:
If DMYF can foresee the future, instead of predicting the Mining Game’s destiny we shouldwrite articles like “Bitcoin hits $100000000“…
P. S. Dear All, we hope no one “heavily invested” in the Mining “Game”. We tried our best to warn users to employ common sense.
E. g. read our quote from Cointiply Today: Today’s Status & “Health” Review
Note: Cointiply is not a cryptocurrency faucet. Cointiply is a digital marketing “third
wheelparty”. Cointiply pays its users a % of what it receives from, say, OfferToro, or Adscend Media, which, in turn, are paid a commission from a sale of your “brand awareness increase”, “demographics, “political views”, or “downloads”.
Digital marketing is what Cointiply is good at. The Miming Game is an excellent example of a move which succeeded at bringing a ton of new users to Offer Walls, – bridging the gap between a product and a consumer. However, the mechanics behind the game were a total fail, – somewhat patched by the introduction of the Gem system, yet dependent upon Cointiply using the short-term influx of finance wisely. What did Cointiply do next?..
Cointiplier: “Don’t withdraw!”
Premium Account: “Don’t withdraw!”
Various promises (withdrawals in different currencies): “Don’t withdraw!”
“Savings” scheme: “Don’t withdraw!”
We kept spending time to repeat the obvious: Cointiply’s Mining Game is unsustainable, it’s profitable only to those who invested early, speculated on Gem prices, or stopped manically reinvesting.
We are not even sure if what happened falls under the definition of a “scam”. More than anything, it is a good lesson to learn from.
Alternatively, you can keep trusting websites such as cointiplyguide.com:
…whose owner invested in a level 1 domain, lied, hunting for referrals (attracting hundreds) and, most definitely, earned enough not to give a fuck while DMYF struggled to afford the wordpress.org hosting. But guess what, Mr. Brightside?
While you’re now nervously deleting the content of your moronic “FAQ”, we do not have to edit a single post, we don’t need to change our nicknames, or shut down our website.
Honesty is not profitable in the short run, however untarnished reputation is a vital element of success, as far as journalism is concerned. DMYF is not a “blog about faucets“. DMYF posted meaningless reviews to kill time and stay afloat while working on the new website which, thankfully, will be free of kindergarten content such attempts to scare readers away from obvious scams.
As long as people want to believe in fairy tales, scammers will prosper. Meanwhile, we wonder how vultures, feeding on the faults in human nature, sleep at night.
P. P. S. Cointiply remains a generous faucet, offering biggest stand-alone earnings, second only to Moon Faucets. The Mining Game was a Game. In our very first Mining Game review we stated:
On a more serious note, let us not forget that the “new fun feature” is a game. In any game, you can win and you can lose.
The 90% rule dictates that 90% of those playing Cointiply’s mining game will lose.
What more can be said?
Do we regret writing about the Game? Not at all. As long as our warnings were heard, our efforts were not in vain. Observing yet another social experiment from beginning to end was… educational. We empathise with users who suffered losses due to the abrupt closure of the project, however for us, “goodbye, MG” means that finally we can write about topics that we are actually interested in.
In the final episode of the “Mining Game Series” we will try to analyse the “behind the scenes” mechanics of the Game’s finale, make some calculations, describe our personal experiences and, – hoorrayyy! – conclude the melodramatic series, known as “why you should not invest in a project that promises 1.41% daily ROIs“.
Our sister site has tried its luck in extreme advertising, promoting Lucky Games, the cryptocurrency casino. xD Turned out funny!
*LEGIT = WITHRAWALS CONFIRMED! ANON-APPROVED (c)! NOT A SCAM! DOES NOT SPAM YOUR EMAIL MAILBOX! YOU CAN PLAY FOR FREE!!! YOU CAN PLAY FOR FREE WITHOUT REGISTERING! OH DAMN I AM GOING BACK TO ROULETTTTEEE!!!
It seems many visitors do not catch the “order us a pizza” reference mentioned in the “Contact Us” section, which is, basically, a platinum classic!
“May 22, 2018 marks the eight-year anniversary of the first Bitcoin transaction, in which a Florida man paid for two pizzas with the cryptocurrency. The day has become part of folklore, not because of the transaction, but more the price: the man in question paid 10,000 Bitcoins, which today is worth over $80 million, for the two pizzas.”
“Ten thousand coins were then worth about $40 (£30). A British user agreed to buy the pizza for him, and even at the time the buyer got a good deal out of it: The person paid only $25 (£19) for the two pizzas.
And today, 10,000 bitcoins add up to about $100 million (£75 million).”
Note: the prices mentioned are historical.
The Pizza story became a meme and rightly so. Unfortunately, it also became a brilliant FOMO (beware of FOMO!) tool used by dishonest marketers, promoting their currencies (somewhat similar to the “Apple share price” phenomenon). Buying into cryptocurrencies early worked for some, alas was ruinous for many.
pizzas coins are created equal.
You know what? YOLO. Screw it all; don’t faucet too much. Forget about your crypto portfolios for a while. Do something out of the ordinary. Tell your loved one you loved him, even if the loved one is a cat. Just enjoy your weekend, have as much fun as humanly possible, yet do not do anything we wouldn’t do (which is, um, not saying much). Most importantly, when The Day That Should Not Be Named comes after tomorrow…
Tip: Do NOT waste your time on Cointiply games. Out of all features of Cointiply (“mining” aside), “Video Games” are arguably the most ruthlessly pointless. In effect, since the coins are awarded (at a veeery slooow pace) after an advert you watch while the game is auto-paused, you are “earning” coins while playing video games, not for playing video games, as the amount of coins “earned” has nothing to do with the in-“game” progress. Although the games themselves are somewhat fun (until you realise how much you are actually “earning”, – that is… for about two minutes), moderately well-designed and have that retro-ish look, your game progress cannot be saved. Therefore…
Tip: If you have so much time to waste on faucets that you are venturing into the Video Game section of Cointiply,
you probably need to take a break from faucets have you checked the time? 15 minutes have probably passed and 42 satoshi are ready for collection from BonusBitcoin.
Announcing a new sub-section of our blog which will focus solely on how “well” the companies opeating within the sector communicate their message to their users and potential investors.
– How many thousands $$$ should you invest in the tokens of a company which calls Etherium “Bitcoin 2.0”?
– “What is “Airdrop”? – the Supportiveness of Support
– “You say it best when you say nothing at all” – why some Whitepapers should have remained blank.
& many more brand image, marketing and common sense fails.
