    Trollbox with rain/tipbot

    We need to draw people back to the forum. Why not implement a trollbox with a tipping/rain bot built in. Yep - directly stolen idea from FaucetHub, Cryptopia and hundreds of other forums but hey - both it keeps the punters returning
  2. https://www.coindesk.com/google-bans-crypto-mining-browser-extensions-chrome/ Finally!! Google has decided to stop endorsing "Crypto-Jacking" extensions and is now banning them after seeing that most of those in the Google store were developed non-compliant. I mean - it honestly took them long enough... they really should have been more proactive in the crypto scene well before now shutting down the scam/fake apps that are in there well before now.
  3. Do we have a separate forum area for these? If not - please be vigilant - I know I applied to an airdrop offered by Benebit and after hearing it did a runner and then recently seeing all the fake airdrops going around I was thinking this might be a good a place as any to watch out for and be wary of what you sign up to. EOS Airdrop & Telegram Bot - via Google Form and Telegram (confirmed by EOS official telegram to be an unofficial and more than likely fake drop) OmiseGo (same as above) XRP (same as above) Twitter accounts of famous people offering free crypto if you send them a small amount first (no real official person would require you send them anything - they don't need ur crypto - McAfee, Elon Musk, Charlie Lee, Binance, Cryptopia are examples of people I've seen have accounts set up looking like them - subsequently I report every fake account I see and suggest you do the same. If you complete airdrops - remember you never need to send anyone your private keys or passwords (and in most instances never need to send ETH unless you want to buy tokens directly) so if you ever get contacted for this info just ignore the person/block them/report them in whatever app you get approached etc and be careful who you complete KYC info for - especially in regards to an airdrop - I complete hundreds of airdrops and only have a 10% conversion rate and legit airdrop projects have never required my passport photo or details. So please be careful out there If you have come across airdrops that seem dodgy or claim to be official please let us know here. Official airdrops are easy to verify as the project owners accounts will be able to confirm this easily from within their social media channels. Unofficial ones (can still be legit - like a giveaway to help promote a smaller start-up channel) the difference in scams is that they "pretend" to be from legit people.
  4. More Google docs floating around recently for SCAMDROPs for legit crypto. Some of these CMC listed crypto don't even have official telegram channels so please be careful. Factom FCT, Digital Note XDN, Envion. These drops all follow the same characteristics - they show a legit website (copy and paste it rather than click on it in case it diverts you somewhere unexpected). And ask you to follow telegram channels that are supposed to be "official". They are usually only just created and have a small member base which would indicate its not the legit airdrop channel it claims. Or if you are unsure, always check their official twitters. These may not have the verified tag - but if the community is massive (as the projects usually have 10k plus community) link to the official website from here. Then find the official social media links and see if there is a Telegram account listed. You can pop into here and see or ask if they are running an airdrop via a google form airdrop. If they are on CMC however - there is no need for projects to still airdrop coins. An official airdrop would also be blasted all over their established social media. If you come across dodgy airdrops please let me know. I can always check them for you if you're unsure. Some are just trying to get your email and details to spam you later, some just want you to be subscribed to their channels in order to advertise their sh*t to you, some - and these are the worst - want you to send them crypto to get your "scamdrop" tokens.
  5. Also similar to the above - Substratum also has a google form circulating offering an airdrop. This is fake - don't listen to people who post and say its legit - because the dev himself posted that it is not. https://twitter.com/overridepro/status/977734437936025600 The con on the google form is that the have linked the real website and twitter account (which says to watch for fakes...), but the official telegram account is fake. The telegram account made reference to depositing ETH to get the free tokens. I'm hoping people would see that as a massive flag for FAKE - but who knows. I've since gone back into the form and it looks like the Telegram account link is no longer working. Please do not send this scammer any of your details as the form is still an active link.
  6. DentaCoin Airdrop Telegram Bot is a fake and confirmed by the official team as such. Dentacoin on Twitter “⚠ WARNING: Be aware of potential scammers! There is no airdrop, organized by Dentacoin Foundation on Telegram. ➡ SPREAD THE WORD: We believe that a strong community can be more powerful than any scam attempt. Help us protect… TWITTER.COM

    Coin Reviews

    I use CMC, CoinCodex and CryptoCompare to give me basic metrics on a coin... I know there's a few others like this... ICO review sites break down upcoming ICO's in the same way you're talking about I think... but they have been tricked before but determined scammers so grain of salt an all... lol If someone was to tackle an independant review of coins - i think many would find it useful. It feels like its a project that really should already exist though lol or one that just needs to be updated.
  8. **SCAMALERTS** Google forms for Airdrops for Digibyte, Civic, or VeChain (all confirmed by official twitters and their massive telegram accounts that they are the victims of fakers using there names) We know how these work peeps - fakers are just either trying to phish your dets or get you to subscribe to their telegram groups so they can spam you rubbish in the hopes you'll think its legitimate and purchase from one of their links. The VeChain is actually now saying its Airdrop 2 for those who might remember it from month ago, but the official VeChain confirms its not them. Be safe peeps.
  9. I think I'll pass - sounds like a sh*tcoin

    What can you do to promote genesis forum?

    The bounty campaign (using airdropper army) is good for continued promotion. I use the site (almost daily) to see if there is any new news around I might not have stumbled across - but I do forget about sustained promo for the services I use like Genesis. I need to go write up a Steem review - but I always forget ughhhhh
  11. LeeMac

    What can you do to promote genesis forum?

    You should pop this into the suggestions area - i'd upvote say a 3 month timer for inactivity - 1 month is too short - 6 months-12 seems seems too long

    March 16 Airdrop Discussion Thread

    Lol - I'm not sure what I was doing - but I completely missed applying for the first round doh!! I just posted an update on this into an airdrop group - how long do the airdrops stay open for? Or is it entry based?
  13. Most of you have probably all seen various reasons floating around - but here is a good article that notes 3 of the biggest contributing factors + plus an extra one I felt worth mentioning: https://www.ccn.com/bitcoin-briefly-drops-9000-factors-behind-decline/ For the TLDR peeps: Mt Gox Trustee's sellof BTC & BCH SEC Reg speculation news Japanese Exchanges/Coinbase legal issues Binance - hacking attempt that halted trading to save peeps' coin (and ended up freezing the hackers coins haha) still having the biggest exchange close caused a ripple-effect through-out the ecosystem. Anyways - check out the article if you want some further info
  14. I haven't had a scam shoutout for a couple of days... no news is good news tho But here's an "avoid if can't be bothered with drama" alert - Crestonium Airdrop Bot - Phase 2... I got a couple of reputable reports that participants in the drop started to receive large volumes of spamchain "angry emails" from other participants about being part of a spam chain and it went on and on, sometimes signing up to telegram bot drops is more hit and miss than golden opportunities. At the time of the reporting the project had yet to respond or apologize for the mass mailout that allowed an irritating situation to occur. I skipped this one after the first person alerted that something weird was happening. But if you do want to join, maybe use an alt email so you don't have to clean up ur main email box if the angry-chain mail is still circulating.

    5 coins to buy in FEB

    @euclid not sure if i was time for the snapshot either - but it looks like a Cryptokitty project for NEO using planets lol https://www.galaxy.one/ I'm kind of excited to see it https://medium.com/@zeepin/big-news-crypto-galaxy-free-gala-earned-by-zpt-owners-on-blockchain-based-virtual-universe-168db601a91

    5 coins to buy in FEB

    Oh - I managed to claim my NEO GAS in neotracker too - once i got over 0.003 it worked - anything below that just kept failing. I also tried from a diff IP too tho - so not sure if that or the amount were (or both) contributed to it working.

    Edit posts options

    Hi @Jackson_Genesis What are the requirements for editing posts again? I had this awhile back - I always post something and spot a mistake straight away but now I can't fix them Can we get a preview option before post or let me know what I need to achieve to have the edit options restored? Thanks
  19. If you see an account like Binance, Cryptopia, Electroneum, John McAfee, Genesis or other legit crypto peeps being impersonated on Twitter and the report section doesn't quite cover what you need please use this form to report them. https://help.twitter.com/forms/impersonation I've also reported fake accounts to twitter by getting creative and using the abuse or harassment tag - and reporting targeted harassment tweets where the offending accounts are directing their spam ads to users using @ whoever option to promote their sh*t/scam tweets. And its official - I've turned into that grumpy old man on the street who rings the cops on the noisy neighbors. (Analogy only :))

    Trollbox with rain/tipbot

    @tennesseeJedEYE thats actually probably not a bad idea lol - an hourly claim one like freebitco.in or a no limit one like coinpot ones maybe.
  21. Also - I double checked with ForkDelta yesterday after I saw an airdrop getting offered by them They responded: It took less than 5 mins to confirm - be safe and double check!
  22. Another phishing form floating around offering an airdrop for SALT for joining their telegram and completing their google doc and for tricking others via referrals. (I'm not linking these directly because they are FAKE. SALT or @Saltlending on Twitter advised on both their Twitter and Official Telegram channel (via their pinned post) that airdrops using their name are FAKE. The official website can be found here https://www.saltlending.com/ The official Telegram is here https://t.me/joinchat/EpqzL0Kgf4cHYDv1JVSeRw And the tweet from the official telegram for Salt referencing a fake drop As said before - its mostly only a phishing attempt to gain your details - and then solicit you with fake email offers in the hopes they can trick you into buying or investing in things (having already gained your trust), rather than compromising your accounts or devices. This is where being forewarned and forearmed can keep you from being scammed out of your crypto.

  25. The long awaited Android Mobile Miner was finally released last week to the public after its extensive beta testing finished. Finally the rest of us get our hot little hands on it. https://electroneum.com/ If you have ever tried to used a faucet or miner mobile app in the past you'll know how tiresome it can be. Your phone is technically not set up to operate in an "always-on" state that the Minergate mobile miner for example requires, and its battery drains quicker as a result. You also need to change it's default sleep settings and have it plugged in to constant power as well.... Annoying much... And then, the mining result is so inconsequential, that you might as well have spent 10 minutes claiming from faucets instead of wasting energy setting up your phone. The ETN miner solves most of this. Download the app, login and set up your account, get ur wallet sorted. Yes, yes... a little bit of mucking around there (but you still need to do this on any other app you register for). Then click the miner button to start it - it calculates your phones hash power and then you can sleep your phone. Yep - it runs in the background. The difference in ETN's miner versus other miner's is that its not directly mining from your phone... ok what??? Its converting the hashing power your device theoretically has, and its giving you the resulting equivalent ETN you "would" earn if the phone was a dedicated miner. ETN are aware of the above problem with mobile phones and trying to mine on them and the end result is - you are still supporting the ETN network by downloading and using their miner, but the miner is more allocating you a comparitive reward rather than rewarding for direct ETN. And I love this. The ETN will get transferred automatically to your ETN account upon mining 5 ETN. I currently only generate 15 hashes per second. Compare that to the CPU ETN miner you can download for a PC that can do over 100 hashes a second, or a single GPU that works on thousands of hashes per second, its not exactly the most efficient way to mine. But the beauty of it for me is - its not taxing my phone at all, its not intrusive and taking up most of my phones processing ability, its just another tool in your passive crypto generating arsenal to help grow your free crypto. Download it now, refer your friends and all start earning some #freecrypto link below in my sig!
