COINTIPLY website down?

Cointiply Website responds with a “certificate error” when you try opening it. Is Cointiply down?

Safari: 
cointiply down cointiply legit cointiply scamBrave Browser:

cointiply scam
Opera:

coinriply minimum payout
etc.

So we said “Hey! What’s going on!”

Opera allows us to “continue anyway”, which lets us open Cointiply.

Ergo, Cointiply is not down. According to the “News” section…

cointiply legit or scam
Cointiply “had problems with their SSL certificates”. Whether you want to trust them or not is up to you. We do not trust anyone by definition. A SSL problem is fixable in a matter of days at most. A “technical issues” excuse is a century-old trick that online businesses use to avoid paying you.

Q: Is Cointiply legist or is Cointiply a scam?

A: So far nothing indicated Cointiply being a scam. However, a security error which scares visitors away and which appeared around the time when people have reached their payout thresholds…

Cointiply

We do not think Cointiply is cashing out and shutting down, but the certificate error is a warning bell. We clearly remember what was happening with CCRB website when the time to pay their customers (they never did, of course) came, – at one point, their “portal” was reduced to one (!) page which screamed “buy our tokens!”.

Q: Can Cointiply just “disappear”? 

A: Hell yes. Tesla Mining even had a registered company address on their website (buying a mailbox for business purposes costs almost nothing in the UK, – NEVER be fooled by a “London address”). Then Tesla Mining just disappeared, going on a summer holiday along with your “investments”. Do you know where Cointiply is based? (we do) When we asked Cointiply a simple “where are you based” question, they have given us a rubbish “anonymity” answer.

We are not saying that the faucet will disappear. What we are saying is that a persistent security issue is not a good sign.

P. S. We have contacted Cointiply asking for some clarity in the matter. We will keep you posted. For now, do not purchase their premium account and consider reaching for a withdrawal. Do not give up and do not let a faucet win, – always make them pay you for your time.. At least once.

CCRB Giveaway Scam: “Refer and Get Zero”.

In reality

Dear All,

Understandably, many are curious what is happening to their referral bonus now that the CCRB Token Sale is over.

CCRB did clearly state, via the platform’s website and through correspondence, that the referral bonus will be paid out once the Token Sale finishes regardless whether the referrals make a purchase or not. It was repeated numerous times and as explicitly as it gets.

However, please remember that the cryptocurrency world is largely unregulated. Most of the companies are honest and abide by their promises and T&Cs. Others don’t.

Have you “worked” hard, promoted the CCRB platform and attracted 100s-1000s of referrals?

Did you get excited, looking at those hundreds of USD in your virtual “wallet”?

Do you feel screwed over now that you are all of a sudden expected to somehow make 20% of your referrals purchase something from CCRB’s so-called “partners” (are these partnerships real and unique?), even if you have no clue who clicked on your referral link? Well, sorry to say, then you learned your lesson from an interaction with a Ponzi Scheme-ish organisation.

In case it makes you feel any better (it should not), there are people who feel that they’ve been screwed over even more than you do, – those who actually “invested” in purchasing the CCRB Token when there was no indication that CCRB is interested in anything apart from increasing the perceived legitimacy of its “ecosystem” and investing in anything apart from making it seem that the CCRB token is actually worth anything.

(is CCRB a scam or not? What is it all about? How true are all those numbers stated on CCRB’s website? Stay tuned for full digest of what, how and why!)

Q: I have contacted all my friends, family, posted in Facebook/Twitter/Steemit, got 400 (500, 600, 1000) people to register and was waiting for the end of the Token Sale and now I find out that, unless 80 people (100, 120, 200) make a purchase, it was all for nothing…

A: So, according to the “logic” (or absence of such, rather), you should NOT have referred many people. If you would have only referred your immediate family of five people and got your mom to buy whatever from whomever, you would receive 100% of your referral income

Ergo, the harder one worked to promote CCRB, the further he or she lowered his or her chances to get anything in return. But you did not know that up until today, did you.

Q: But they said… But they wrote… But it was stated…
A: Yes…:Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 10.54.38
…and the CCRB “Whitepaper” states that “the token is based on the Bitcoin 2.0 protocol”. Nuff said.
…to be continued.

Black CryptoFridays …when darkness descends upon the markets and portfolios are coloured red…

Yes, that term has already been coined. We would be surprised, otherwise.

The markets have seen worse. Remember the prophecies of doom what happened when China slashed cryptocurrency trading, restricting the search engines from showing anything crypto-related? First of all, when rumours of the Central Bank’s talks began spreading, within a day, bitcoin price in the Chinese exchange market increased by 9.3%, while other major markets (both Western and Eastern) remained stagnant. Momentum was rebuilding in China, despite the ongoing bitcoin exchange ban talks.

Then, for some time, Japan became the Asian cryptocurrency centre and the yen trade volume surged. Surprise! Traders moved offshore. Besides… What is the geolocation of Binance, the leading cryptocurrency exchange by daily trade volumeDemand for Bitcoin in China increased. Japan’s stagnating economy only welcomed the new status:

Takashi Shiono, Credit Suisse, Tokyo: “There are estimates that tax revenue from the cryptocurrency business, including capital gains taxes from individual investors and from corporations, could amount to 1 trillion yen (US$9.2 billion), though that is very speculative at this stage.”

Oh, the price of Bitcoin slumped temporarily, allowing those willing and able to take risks to profit off buying in cheap. Same scenario happened with South Korean government agencies proposed regulation: about 10 days later, the markets were, pardon the slang, like “whatever” (see chart below).

BTCpricesouthkoreanresonse.png

We mentioned the fate of said South Korean regulations previously. Why? There almost was a public uprising!

Why did the price of Bitcoin fall so low over the past days?

There are about 10-15 solid an 25-30 speculative reasons why. We will let Carter Thomas, do that for us. Hey, it’s the weekend. To us, it looks like one of those perfect times when you should go out, meet some friends, watch a film, do some shopping, play a computer game.

Still thinking about the cryptocurrency market and the blood-red of your portfolio? Ok, watch something on Viuly instead and get yourself some free VIU. Shop for virtually anything through the CCRB shopping system, – browse through AliExpress, get yourself a new gadget, buy someone a present or explore some holiday destination at a massive discount and get yourself a flat 25% cryptocashback bonus. Register at Cointiply and play a computer game, earning some satoshi for it. The rewards aren’t great, but you are free to play as often as you like and some of the games are actually cool; the truck arcades and Swoop are amongst the ones we enjoyed testing out:

(please forgive us for our sense of humour; the actual gameplay is fun: flying around amongst pretty landscapes, collecting shineys; but Black CryptoFriday (or BlackCrypto Friday? right?) 🙂

All is well, Feathercoin is still going strong against BTC (remember where you can get ahold of some free FTC for doing nothing and where you can trade them?). DASH is doing well against Etherium. Crave is just showing fiat who’s the boss. Other than that… Um, red is the new green? 🙂

*note: we previously have not mentioned Crave. We will.

*note: all factors considered, almost any CCRB cryptocashback offer, not mentioning special offers, beats a similar cashback offer from a traditional provider, such as Quidco. 

*note: we have not previously mentioned Viuly: if you haven’t yet, create an account now; you get 10 VIU for registration and random amounts of VIU for various bounty tasks. The ERC20 token is traded on major exchanges, however withdrawing VIU is a subject for a separate guide. Hint: VIU supply is limited…

Hope you have a great, diverse weekend!

While stocks last… 100% free, ready to trade: Universal Cash (U.CASH) tokens.

UCASH

U.CASH is nothing new. Appearance of U.CASH on BTC-Alpha caused somewhat of a drama within the bounty-hunter community back in the day, but the months-long story deserves a separate article. Below is a simple guide of how you can get ahold of some tradable tokens:

1. Register at U.CASH providing your real details (most importantly, – phone number).

ucash bounty free ucash

2. Complete the verification process (it consists of either receiving an automated call, or a SMS with a code). Important: unless your phone or mobile phone is confirmed, you will not receive the reward for registration.

*once your account is verified, you will notice circa 297 U.CASH tokens appear in your balance.

3. Why stop there? Under “Menu”, below “User Services”, click the “Dashboard” button. Set up 2FA for your account (to receive extra 50 tokens). If you wish, you can connect your Linkedin account (50 tokens), Twitter account (100 tokens), etc. Reportedly, the total U.CASH you can receive upon completion of all optional steps is 1000 (new bounties are hinted at).

4. Register at BTC-Alpha – a young exchange (zero-fee successful deposit of U.CASH – confirmed). Under “Profile“=>”Finances” section, scroll down to find and click on U.CASH. There, you will find your U.CASH deposit address.

BTC-Alpha offers the following pairs:

U.CASH/ETH
U.CASH/USD
U.CASH/BTC

AND/OR

Register at C2CX – a small Chinese exchange (successful deposit of U.CASH – unconfirmed).

selling ucash

Take note of your UCASH wallet addresses (“Deposit” buttons); although U.CASH is an ERC20 token, sending U.CASH to an Etherium address might result in loss of funds).

C2CX offers the following pairs:

U.CASH/BTC
U.CASH/USDT

(alternatively, you can always choose to store U.CASH on the currency’s web-wallet, or keep them an an ERC20-compatible Etherium wallet for future use)
5. On the U.CASH website menu, under “User Management” section, navigate to “Withdraw U.CASH“:

withdraw and sell ucash

As a new user, you will probably have to wait some time before you can withdraw U.CASH, or send U.CASH to another user. Hence, the earlier you complete all verification processes, the earlier you will be able to have full access to your funds.

6. Why not educate yourself about U.CASH while you wait for the transaction to clear?.. The U.CASH story is not over yet.

*hint: often, announcements of listings of a currency on a new exchange cause the market price to spike.

How did the news about alleged Coinpot.co hack spread?..

In the previous post we have included an original quote from BitcoinTalk forum thread, which seems to be the one (and only) “proof”, if we can call it that, of an actual hack even happening.

We are strictly against creating the impression of duplicate articles through re-posting content and would rather recommend you read parts I, II and III of today’s (or yesterday’s for some) “attack”. In this case, however, it’s a must. This comment sparked the “Hacking” legend: Continue reading “How did the news about alleged Coinpot.co hack spread?..”
