    One coin is now at the "opening our new office" stage. This is in Bulgaria, apparently.

    Great article in any language! It is going to be fun to watch the faithful spin this one to calm the troops and new recruits. Now if the Bulgarian authorities would just act and shut this down, it would be a huge win for all., especially if they do refunds and clawbacks against the major winners like in Zeek and TelexFree.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    OneCoin announced that they are going to be holding a major event in London on June 11 at Wembley Arena. This was posted on their FB page. Only one itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie problem.....The Wembley Arena does not have any event happening on June 11, let alone for OneCoin.

    At this late date, if they don't have a venue, they aren't going to get one, so another lie it seems to have been told by OneCoin. Since they have been selling tickets for this London event, you would think they would at least know the venue where it is going to be held. Can't wait to hear all the excuses and cya that is going to take place and soon. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

    Just so you know this information is true, here is the Email I got earlier this morning with this news, and I quote:


    "Hiya Lynn,

    So having just got off the phone to their box office, they have told me that they have no event booked for the 11th June, never mind one for One Coin. Hope that helps!

    Cheers,"

    The SSE Arena, Wembley;
    Interesting tidbit;
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wembley_Arena;
    Former names
    Empire Pool (1934–78)
    Wembley Arena (1978–2014)
    SSE Arena 2014-
    ............
    The building was renamed The SSE Arena on 1 June 2014 after SSE plc bought the naming rights to the venue for 10 years.

    Of course all real and legal companies don't reveal where they are going to hold their major event until the last possible moment.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    OneCoin's claim is that there are to be over 11,000 people attending this big London event. No meeting room would accommodate them if it is indeed this large. But then with all the other lies told by OneCoin I don't believe their 11,000 claim anyway. Still according to the booking agent, there are none, zero, nil, nada, zilch events of any kind scheduled for that day at the arena. My take is this would also mean smaller rooms. It is also not on the bulletin board calendar of events being held at the arena on their website. You would think that OneCoin wold be demanding their event be proudly displayed for all to see.

    My bet is still on them holding where until the last possible moment so those who are planning on going and exposing OneCoin would not have time to attend.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    You can add Germany to the countries that are investigating OneCoin.

    In the meantime Ruja threw herself a birthday at the Royal Albert Hall, renting the entire thing for only 50 people. I am sure the members who can't get their fabulous, special crypto-currency coins sold were thrilled that she is spending their money almost as fast as she gets it in OneCoin. Add to the over $20 Million Dollars of property she has bought in Bulgaria, I'm sure also makes them thrilled at her expensive purchases.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Video of Ruja's speech at the London event is out. [Link]

    It's getting harder to say they're even pretending to be a currency. I mean sure they're pretending to be a currency but they're doing such a ridiculously bad job of it. They do not have enough coins to add merchants to their network? Gee, did they ever notice that you can transact fractions of a bitcoin? As I type one bitcoin is valued at $637 but if I wanted to I could order a pizza with part of a bitcoin, I guess OneCoin is not divisible into partial units.

    That or Ruja's speech is pure and total crap.

    But they have their own fix for this particular conundrum. On October 1st they will take their website offline and install a brand new blockchain (because everyone knows you need to take the website offline to work on a blockchain, it's like jacking up a car to change it's tire). The new version will increase the total potential number of OneCoins from over two billion to 120 billion. It will also double the amount of all existing OneCoins and tokens without decreasing the value of individual coins.

    Let me remind you, this is from a company that claims to be providing education on cryptocurrencies and economics in general.


    As expected no merchants have been added to the network (how could they, there ain't enough coins for that) but they did an amazing shuck and jive with announcing an app that affiliates could take to local businesses to somehow enroll them into the network or something. So like, after they invent enough coins (Grrr) it will be up to the affiliates to sign up merchants.

    Currency is a generally accepted form of money, including coins and paper notes, which is issued by a government and circulated within an economy. Used as a medium of exchange for goods and services, currency is the basis for trade.
    Until OneCoin can be used to actually buy things with it isn't a currency and best guess one their current timeline for that happening is going to be "by the end of the year" which by some amazing coincidence is exactly what they were saying a year ago.
    So your prophets of finance have fallen on their collective proverbial face, and you hear muffled voices calling: Welcome to the human race.
    You made a killing dealing real estate at NASA selling cemetery plots in outer space til some falling coffins crashed upon your doorstep: Welcome to the human race.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    .
    So here is the Onecoin recap of the huge, exciting announcements that Ken Labine and the rest of the Onecoin vultures traveled to London for:



    This is hysterical.

    · Merchant program will start end of this year & existing members will also make money out of it. Over 1 million merchants will come on board in the next 2 years

    Try to imagine one significant merchant deciding that accepting Onecoins in return for goods and/or services makes sense.
    Really - TRY.

    · Onecoin will go to Share Market, end of this year while merchant services are launched

    First - why is "share market" capitalized? Is this some new brand "coming soon to a WalMart near you"?
    To sell shares to the public requires a recognized investment bank serving as underwriter. The underwriter performs due diligence including examining all company books, then assumes the liability of going public by deciding on a fair market value for the offered shares and purchasing them. They make their money by offering the shares for a higher price than they paid for them.
    Onecoin shares publicly listed? It will never happen.

    · On 1st October, Onecoin will adopt the biggest ever blockchain of history with a capacity of 120 billion coins to be mined!

    Huh? What is wrong with the "old" blockchain (if indeed one even exists)?
    Bitcoin solves the liquidity problem with simple code that allows for infinite divisions of its available supply depending on public demand.
    If Onecoins were "real" money with the current supply at 2.1 billion ... and I then announce that I am going to produce another 117.9 billion of them ... I am telling you that I am devaluing what you currently hold by over 95%!

    · On 1st October, all existing member's coins will be DOUBLED as a gift from Dr Ruja regardless of the split procedure, just because we are the pioneers of Onecoin

    Oh cool! 2.1 billion Onecoins allegedly currently worth over 14 billion dollars are going to ... hey wait a second!
    "Dr" Ruja really has an extra 14 billion dollars laying around to generously give away to her suckers?
    Experienced Ponzi players clearly recognize this as a last grab for stolen cash.

    · From 1st October mining time will be reduced to 1-2 weeks only

    If you have something that can't be sold or exchanged for goods or services, who cares how fast you can get them?

    · "OneLife" umbrella has been created.

    ____________ <- fill in your own reason for enthusiasm here. I can't think of one.

    · OneCoin Launched a new physical product for members – “Onelife tablet”

    Step right up, folks! Buy your tablet from "Dr" Ruja and pay ten times what the Chinese sell them for! YAY!

    · Onelife app will be launched in a few weeks to initiate merchant program

    An APP? I'll personally be crossing the days off on my calendar to this clearly specified release date.

    · New unhakeable websites launched with latest technology

    Does this mean the current website is "hakeable"?

    · Hacking challenge: if anyone in the whole world can hack our website will win €100,000

    Translation: "We don't have €100,000 laying around where anyone can get to it, because we know that one out of a hundred junior high students in Russia or China can hack our grade-school website any day they want to".

    ri-diculous

    There is a really great article on the blog Bitcoin.com that exposes OneCoin for the Ponzi it is. Here is a link to the article:

    https://news.bitcoin.com/beware-defi...onecoin-ponzi/

    Love it when the heat gets turned up on these Ponzi's, and this definitely turns up the heat on OneCoin. OneCoin is scrambling to do damage control.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Well, they are now targeting the deaf community. This Saturday evening they are holding a presentation not far from where I live. In the promo for the event, it is billed as Deaf Night Out and not a word about OneCoin, but learning about crypto-currencies. The person doing the presentation is not deaf, but he is very fluent in sign language. This should be fun if he gets around to Q&A at the end.

    They did one of these meetings in Miami and a few Bitcoiners were there and I guess it got quite interesting when it came to the Q&A, and they basically shut the presentation down exposing OneCoin. So not sure if I will be able to get in, but going to try.

    It is absolutely going to be fascinating to see how long the "true believers" like Ken Labine stand behind this massive SCAM as it goes down in flames.

    I guess Ken forgot about this from Sweden, and I quote:

    "In an official notice published on the regulator’s Lotteri Inspektionen website, the Swedish Gaming Board have declared OneCoin to be “a chain letter game or similar”.

    Just so you know under Swedish Law, chain letter is the same thing as an illegal pyramid scheme; and they have not rescinded this opinion. Oops
