Tinder cryptocurrency scam

I am French male an I met this Korean woman on Tinder 2 weeks ago. By the way her age was not showing here age and there was only pictures where we could not really distinctly see her face, but she looked pretty enough.
She presented herself has an entrepreneur who was in France since about 8 months to take over the family branch of her family cosmetics importing company. She later told me that she was the CEO of the French branch and there is over 50 people working under her supervision. The name of the company is Nami Beauty Trade. Her hobbies are hiking, diving, golfing, eating, shopping and reading news and economics when resting.
She rapidly asked me if we could talk on Whatsapp and that we should stop talking on Tinder with other people because we should invest in our relationship and be exclusive.
She seemed genuinely interested in myself and started asking what kind of relationship I was looking for and what I wanted for the Future. She said she was looking for an ambitious man who was sincere and caring. She insisted she was from a very conservative Korean family. We talked everyday for hours since.
Now, here is the catch. After she noticed I was really interested in her, because, honestly I am since she seems smart, cultivated and interesting, she told me that she had to go to China with her father to invest into a new cryptocurrency, yet to be rendered public, called BSB. Since then she has been sending me screenshots of the evolution of her investment that is growing steadily.
She became more and more insistent on the fact that I should invest in this new cryptocurrency for our future because it is a sure investment and that the number of investment is limited and therefore it is the great timing to buy since it is not public yet. Also she said that I should have money if we wanted to be together because her family is rich they would oppose someone that is not in the same "sphere". I repeatedly told her that I had no fundings to invest at the moment and that we should wait to be more acquainted. But that made me getting more and more suspicious, so I asked her how should I proceed to buy this currency. Then she explained to me and I told her yesterday that I would look into it. I also asked her if we could meet soon, to which she said yes, and she sent me two pictures of herself after I asked and discovered that she was indeed very pretty. All this after I said I might be interested in investing (which I am not).
The website to invest into BSB is: blueskybtc.top . I would need to buy BTC and then receive an invite from her father (if he allows it...) and then convert it to BSB.
I saw that there were other similar scams https://micky.com.au/shady-crypto-exchange-used-in-tinder-dating-scam/, https://www.reddit.com/Scams/comments/e20lsn/psa_about_tinder_financial_scams_running_in_a_lot/.
Does anyone think it could be legit ? Or is it really another scam as I suspect ?
I suspect it is a big scam and want to warn people about this new website and want to know if other people have been victim of the same organization.

08-13 22:55 - 'Do you believe in good and evil? Please help me?' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/aukwardsome removed from /r/Bitcoin within 38-48min

'''
This isn’t a joke. Or a copy paste or a shit topic.
Someone’s messing with me If I can give this person a full bitcoin I think they will back off and leave me alone and I’ll be free of this karmic debt
So I am hoping that someone who sees this, who believes in good and evil and has experienced enough to recognize
Or even if 4 people see this and can chip in a quarter of a btc. If you can afford it, you’d help me a great deal. I just want to give them a btc for what they took from me. Which is very personal.
In return for helping me I’ll tell you what you have to look out for when dealing with a bad dude shall you encounter one. May save you a lifetime of pain and torment.
It can’t be overstated how much you’d be helping me. I know I fucked up, but I’m not ready to give up on my life. And I’m actually broke because of my habits and my mindset I guess
If anyone wants to help me, with this, I am also looking for a mentor. I am loyal and a straight shooter. I mean I know this sounds crazy, but if you’ve ever experienced something out of the ordinary that’s enough to show you how things be in life then you already know.
My plan is to give the bitcoin to clear any remaining karmic debt and only in exchange for the abuse to stop
And then I want to dedicate my life towards reinventing myself and helping others. It may take the help of a mentor.
Will anyone help me, please?
Edit: I did buy some cheap Korean crypto that could go to at least a dollar and fetch me $20,000 right now it’s only worth 400 though. So I am taking action to fix things. But I am Unemployed and not the best employee.
Don’t deal with bad people and you won’t end up in my situation. But if you do, I hope you are better prepared to give the devil his due, than I was

Braving the Wind and the Waves, DeFi Earns GNO Great Fame Overnight

Braving the Wind and the Waves, DeFi Earns GNO Great Fame Overnight
Written by the CoinEx Institution, this series of jocular and easy to understand articles will show you everything you need to know about major cryptocurrencies, making you fully prepared before jumping into crypto!
2020 is destined to be an unusual year. It has witnessed the outbreak of Covid-19 all over the world and the economic crisis in many countries. The financial markets have plunged into a gloom, especially the market in the US where trading was temporarily halted five times in a row, an incident rare to even Warren Buffet, the godfather of American stock market. The cryptocurrency world has not been spared as many blockchain companies failed to survive because of the broken capital chain, causing a domino effect; investors in this world even started to hold negative towards cryptocurrencies after the big crash on March 12, which even dissuaded many outsiders from getting in…
In a word, the first half of 2020 is really too hard!
Many projects in the blockchain industry are struggling to survive, and those survivors deserve our praise. Among them is DeFi that was once popular.
DeFi, developing at the critical time, is destined to ride the wind and waves this year, ushering in all opportunities and challenges. In fact, the crypto community has been concerned about DeFi since 2019. With its exploration of financial applications, DeFi has derived prediction markets, insurance, payment platforms, asset management, and identity information authentication from financial scenarios, in addition to stablecoins, borrowing and DEX.
Today we are going to talk about the decentralized prediction market, part of DeFi’s product matrix. It looks a bit high-end. After all, not everyone can handle its slogan, “redistribute the future”. There are two representative players in this market segment, the leader Augur and the latecomer Gnosis.

https://preview.redd.it/umpprozs9db51.jpg?width=512&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d62eb4c4bdadd14a21d6e1f18c837076174644ce
Gnosis means knowledge in Greek, also representing prophecy. The project deserves its name, which is to predict the future. Gnosis is a decentralized prediction market built on the Ethereum protocol; like Augur, it is one of the most compelling projects in the Ethereum ecosystem.
Gnosis provides an open platform for people to predict the outcome of any event, which greatly simplifies the creation of customized prediction market applications and lowers the threshold for users. Its development can be traced back to the early days of the establishment of Ethereum. The team is led by Martin Koppelmann and Stefan George, experts in the prediction market, and an extraordinary advisory team represented by Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum founder, and Joe Lubin, founder of ConsenSys. After 2 years of uninterrupted research and development, Gnosis has brought together the latest blockchain technologies such as Oracle, State Channels, and Futarchy. Its “Crowdsourced Wisdom” platform allows anyone to predict the market at any time, and those with accurate prediction can receive rewards. (PS: The age of the prophet is coming!)
In addition, Gnosis has also opened its own platform to create Dapp (decentralized applications). By the way the beta version of Gnosis is one of the first Dapps based on Ethereum and was released in August 2015.
In April 2017, Gnosis issued its token, GNO. Unlike the traditional way of token sale, the Gnosis team chose an improved Dutch auction: 10 million GNOs as planned, up to 9 million GNOs will be sold through auctions, and the remaining tokens belong to the team.
In the improved Dutch auction as aforementioned, the bidding price of the auction target decreases in sequence until the auction termination condition is triggered. Contrary to the case in current mainstream token crowdfunding pricing methods, the price of GNO will be lowered for each new block. During the auction, participants can send ETH to the token address released by the official, promising to purchase GNO at or below the current price upon submission. When the auction termination condition is triggered (i.e. where ETH in the equivalent of 12.5 million US dollars is raised or 9 million GNOs sold), the final GNO price on the block will be determined as the GNO auction price.
Under this mechanism, all participants in a successful bidding have the same cost of obtaining each GNO, and the final auction price of the GNO will not be higher than the price promised by the participants in the bidding.
In fact, the Gnosis ecosystem consists of two tokens: GNO and OWL. GNO is a local token in the Gnosis system. Its main purpose is to generate OWL — users can obtain OWL by locking the GNO in a smart contract.
Some people claim that Gnosis has innovated in its effort to emulate Augur and even excelled the latter by virtue of the introduction of Oracle, which improves efficiency and expands the scope of use:
  1. Gnosis provides an open platform for people to predict the outcome of any event. At the same time, the automatic execution of Oracle and the smart contract enables players to enter the prediction market more flexibly and freely, which not only simplifies the creation of customized prediction market applications but makes it even more efficient;
  2. Oracle and smart contracts can automatically execute the prediction market, bringing it a grander vision that Gnosis participants may be no longer individuals; in the Internet of Things, the information collected by sensors can also enter into the blockchain as an information asset for prediction through Oracle, further expanding its scope of use.
With the popularity of DeFi, GNO rose to fame overnight. According to the data shown on feixiaohao.com, GNO rose 94.56% this April, its community has also gained growing attention, and followers on Twitter and Reddit have surged in a month. Just like LBC, an obscure cryptocurrency that suddenly went viral, GNO deserves its fame on the one hand, and, on the other, it happened with a help of DeFi.


At present, GNO has been listed in the new first-tier exchange CoinEx, providing users with more trading options for DeFi-related projects. As DeFi braves the wind and waves, how will GNO seize this opportunity? Will its trading volume and popularity continue to rise? Welcome to share your opinions in CoinEx!

WALLETS, SETUP GUIDES & SNAPSHOTS
Just a reminder for the community and also for any new members, we have added a Wallet Setup Guides page, which takes any first time user of Mousecoin step-by-step through the process of installing their Mousecoin wallet and getting it online. The guide uses the latest blockchain snapshot found on the Wallet Downloads Page in the example explanation meaning that all new members of the Mousecoin community will be able to get their wallets online faster as the sync time should be minimal. We will be updating the blockchain snapshot at least once every month to ensure that people have access to the most up to date blockchain info. The latest blockchain snapshot was performed on the 1st June 2020.
The wallet version is currenty V1.0.0.0, with future releases of the Mousecoin wallet coming soon

POS & STAKING
In the last month we asked the community if they would be interested in being a part of a Community Staking Pool. After investigations into this finding security flaws in most platforms, as well as the lack of interest from members of the community we have decided to not go ahead with the Community Staking Pool. While we understand that there are members of the Mousecoin Community that are unable to stake themselves for whatever reason, and that there are a number of staking platforms that offer pool staking for MIC3 to help these people stake, we will not officially be supporting any staking platforms. We ask all Community members using these or thinking about using these to keep in mind that any MIC3 hosted on these platforms is not in their wallets, and therefore not controlled by them. Do proper investigations into any platform that you use for this as there is always the possibility of loss. We encourage all members of the Mousecoin Community to stake from their own wallet (where possible) as this helps us to secure the network. If you need help setting up your wallet, go to our Wallet Setup Guides page for step-by-step guides on setting up your Mousecoin wallet.
MOUSECOIN FAUCETS
We have updated the Mousecoin (MIC3) Faucets Page:
To make things clearer and we will be adding more faucets soon!
EXCHANGES
Last month we saw the edition of the USDT/MIC3 pair to nanu exchange. In our efforts to increase exposure of Mousecoin, we are still attempting to list on both ATAIX and Unnamed.Exhchange.
ATAIX We have risen to 18th position in the voting list on ATAIX, but we still need your votes. Remember you can vote every 24 hours for this listing, and you can share in 125,000,000 MIC3
📷
Unnamed.Exhchange The exchange listing for Unnamed.Exhchange is 0.05 BTC. For anyone unfamiliar with the exchange there are two ways that you can donate to the listing:
1. If you are already a member of, or wish to be a member of Unnamed.Exhchange (and why wouldn’t you), you can put funds towards our listing by tipping us through the trollbox (Mousecoins). If you wish to be a member of Unnamed.Exhchange, you can register here: https://www.unnamed.exchange/Login/Register
2. You can also donate to the listing fee through the following addresses: BTC – bc1qmaqzhfqcw0urva0rtgfz5qvq4rw7kdnp6j7754 LTC – ltc1qc775eeftdde2jrevnyukrd2w9853jy5gmtv6rn DOGE – DEnBpriaFnKiNeBv6Q7MVxMg5hLv5urQFg UTIP – AUTyu2JhGAaCkM3KAmeBopto2bNBchNJfE
If you would like to donate in another crypto available on Unnamed.Exhchange, we have opened up the chat on the Discord channel HERE to assist with this. Please request the address and we will provide it for you. ANY AND ALL DONATIONS ARE WELCOME!! This is a good exchange and getting a listing her should help lift the profile of MIC3.
We will be reporting balances to the discord channel https://discord.gg/cYuA8FA
COMMUNITY FUND
📷
In the last month the Community Fund has undergone a huge amount of change. We have completely moved all of our remaining balances away from 4Stake, with the MIC3 going to the Community Fund MIC3 account and the remaining crypto’s towards out listing on Unnamed.Exhchange. The Community Fund page on the website has also been updated to reflect all of the changes. It is an exciting time for the Community Fund as we have now reached a balance that will sustain itself. This is why we have introduced the Community Member payment, and are able to sustain the faucets we have on https://erex.io/freecoin/ and in the Phoneum Games. There is still more to come!

Tinfoil hat time... Don't take seriously, or do I guess. Whatever, I'm not your mother. This would make for a great story though.

The creator of the game, "Plague Inc" was interviewed for a CDC blog post from 2013.
How did you ensure it was a realistic game?
Without a medical background, I did a lot of online research in order to make sure it felt realistic to players. Luckily, I have always been very interested in biology as well as economics and current affairs. This helped a lot when I was building the algorithms and models inside the game. A critical stage in the game is the ‘Infection Cycle’ that dictates how people become infected with a disease and how they infect others. The game revolves around this stage, and I spent months making sure that it worked properly. The core design is based on the concept of ‘basic reproduction rate’ and I found lots of great papers online which taught me more about it.
What kind of audience does Plague Inc. reach and what do they get from it?
Plague Inc. has been downloaded over 10 million times worldwide and over 200 million games have been played to date. As an intelligent and sophisticated strategy game, I think Plague Inc. appeals to people looking for something more meaningful and substantial than the majority of mobile games. It makes people think about infectious disease in a new light – helping them realize the threats that we face every day.
Were players of Plague Inc. interested to know you had been invited to the CDC?
Yes, the reaction to the news has been extremely positive and people are keen to know more! In the first 24 hours after I announced my visit to the CDC almost 1 million people had seen tweets about it! I think people were excited to see that a prestigious organization like the CDC was interested in the game. A lot of people also hoped that visiting the CDC would give me ideas for future updates of the game (which it did!)
What did you learn at CDC?
It was fascinating to meet the people who are working hard every day to keep us safe from the type of threats that Plague Inc. features. I got a tour of the Emergency Operations Center and Broadcast Center, as well as a trip to the CDC museum. This gave me a lot of contextual information about how the CDC works, which will help me add a greater level of realism to the game in the future – especially in terms of how humanity reacts to outbreaks.
What are you working on now and what do you have coming out next?
Plague Inc. is still proving to be an incredibly popular game, so my main focus must be to keep improving the game and adding new content for players. Recently, I released an update that added a zombie-themed plague, as well as translating the game into four other languages. In the next update, I will be adding a new game mode for players, translating it into Japanese/Korean and hopefully adding some CDC content!
From this, we see that even before He went to the CDC over 200 million games had been played, and in the last 7 years, who knows how many more. Since 2013 he has taken highly detailed actual infectious disease data and implemented it into the game.
So at this point, we can assume that Plague Inc. It is a REALISTIC simulation, at least to a certain degree. Adding to this we know that hundreds of millions of simulations have been run. These simulations feature real-world decisions being made, realistic public events, and real sociological changes and variables. Even assuming the worst possible accuracy of the data(remember, companies like Twitter, Google, Facebook have no less than Ten Thousand data points on every US Citizen.), given enough time, a sufficiently robust deep learning AI can optimize this data to an extreme degree.
Let’s also assume that in addition to these PLAYER driven simulations, several AI-controlled simulations have been run as well. Not necessarily with Plague Inc.’s engine, but with Pandemic researchers. With this much data, it just makes sense that at some point this game would be able to not only model the “perfect virus” in order to infect a specific amount of people and cause a specific amount of symptoms. In addition, if the game uses actual virus genomics data, it could even, given enough time, develop the recipe to create this virus for us.
This isn’t even the extent of this AI possibility. Narrow, data-driven AIs are capable of crunching an obscene amount of data. And if you feed in the right data (GPS movements, Spending Habits, public reactions to public events and news stories, hell, I’m even sure memes could be effectively factored into these algorithms) these systems could very easily be linked together into a massive simulation that factors in and predicts all sorts of “likely eventualities”.
Brexit, Trump, Sanders, China, are all great examples of events that have an almost limitless amount of data points on the internet, all categorized by companies like Cambridge Analytica. Not only your reaction to the specific stimulus, but what you do after you've reacted to the stimulus, and how you react to that next stimulus, and so on and so on Ad Infinitum. Not to mention all the quizzes you’ve been filling out on Facebook, your Instagram account, your Spotify, your Tinder likes and dislikes and matches, YouTube and Pornhub browsing data all get fed into these systems. Ever wonder why Facebook and Amazon are making so much money? We can CLEARLY see that Billionaires run the world and can do ANYTHING they want right in front of us and they face ZERO consequences. Epstein didn't kill himself proved this. And Panama paper before that.
Hell Reddit accounts are the worst of the worst. Every time we upvote a meme, we are running calculations for these algorithms. We have become processing power for these AI Overlords. We willingly provide these companies with all of the data they need, they give us free smartphones and we welcome and integrate them into our daily lives. They listen to our conversations, and we are told that it is just for the mass aggregate data and that nobody actually listens to them. Humans don't listen to them, but Deep Learning Neural Nets certainly do. but forget about all the AI systems for a second. Collectively, the entire internet-connected totality of the human race is an actual computer.
If you think about how we all interact with each other in a single day, we can assume that most interactions function almost exactly like a math problem, just with a seemingly infinite amount of variables. Impossible to know that you said an innocuous thing that triggered the lady sitting next to you in some way that she was in a shitty mood for the rest of the day and ended up impulse buying $30 in lottery tickets. She was extremely rude to several people that day and acted like a typical "Karen" about it. All of this made a total of twenty-six people post funny statuses on Facebook or tweeted about her, which all were, to some varying degree of engagement, responded to and liked and emojied about. not to mention all the other interactions that took place in all that. Even if these AI algorithms miss seventy-five percent of all that sensory data and causal reasoning, we still make computations on that based on our own actions. The next time that lady sees that man in the coffee shop, she might remember the time she had a shitty day because of him. Then she iterates the loop again, adding more data to the pile... This process will inevitably guide not only each individual person to their own predictable outcomes, but humanity as a whole will eventually lead to some almost unavoidable outcome. We are a Neural Net running constantly. Our entire human race is working out calculations, and the interconnectedness of the world wide web has increased our processing power to effectively infinite levels. You know in "A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" where they make a computer that is as big as a planet, well, we ARE that computer. (a better example, in my opinion, is found in the book "Children of Time" where spoiler alert: A semi-sentient hivemind race of ants get turned into an actual computer that an uploaded human mind that became part of a possible already conscious AI system eventually gets transferred to where it becomes a sentient human/AI Hybrid spaceship made of ants piloted by a semi-symbiotic sentient Spider Human Alliance)
When asked how much data is on the internet, Google says:
"One way to answer this question is to consider the sum total of data held by all the big online storage and service companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook. Estimates are that the big four store at least 1,200 petabytes between them. That is 1.2 million terabytes (one terabyte is 1,000 gigabytes)."
That is 1.2 billion gigabytes. Just to put this into perspective, let's say your phone has 512GB, for every Gig of data you have on your phone, these companies have 2,343,750GB... or put another way... for every megabyte you have, these companies have 2,343.75 Gigs of data. We all create all the data they need to do pretty much anything conceivable given enough computing power.
Speaking of us collectively being a massive computing system... Do you know what else does an unfathomable amount of calculations per second? You, you guessed it, Bitcoin. Across all of the Bitcoin network, mining could easily be doing billions of calculations every second.
from bitcoinmining.com ”With Bitcoin, miners use special software to solve math problems and are issued a certain number of bitcoins in exchange. This provides a smart way to issue the currency and also creates an incentive for more people to mine.”
What math problems could these be working on? Without being able to look at the entirety of the math problems being worked out, it would be impossible to tell what they are working on. But imagine if these AI systems could distribute these ENORMOUSLY massive simulations on every single computer that is mining bitcoins, I think there would be enough data processing power do run something massive. Add in all the other Crypto mining and, well that's a lot of math. They aren't just doing your standard Multiplication tables either.
In conclusion, we absolutely are living in a simulation, just not how you think. There very well could be an extremely large number of simulations running, using REAL WORLD data to create predictive algorithms to not only predict outcomes but MANAGE them. i.e. what Cambridge Analytica did with Brexit and Trump. We know that this happened, and if that is possible, imagine what else could be possible to manufacture? One man can build a log cabin in ten days, ten men can build a log cabin in one day. And one computer can do a lot more math than ten people can...
TL;DR: Billionaires control the world using AI, and we are the operating system. We already live in the matrix, and it is too late to change anything about that.

BiKi.com Launches New ARCC Staking Program in Partnership with IBMR.io

BiKi.com Launches New ARCC Staking Program in Partnership with IBMR.io
Singapore, 25th May 2020 — Global digital asset trading firm BiKi.com is pleased to announce the launch of a new ARCC staking program in partnership with the world’s first micro asset and crypto reserve currency for Asia and emerging markets, IBMR.io.
The ARCC token was listed on 8th April 2020 on BiKi Exchange and has shown tremendous progress since with a 529.27% increase in return on investment and a 715.13% increase in liquidity, clearly proving that a reserve currency is viable in the cryptocurrency landscape. Additionally, we can look forward to the future appreciation of the token owing to the project’s clear product development road map and through impactful partnerships.
When asked about why they chose to partner with BiKi Exchange, Sinjin David Jung, the managing director of IBMR.io says: “We chose BiKi over other top 10 exchanges because BiKi wants the best for their users for the short and long term. This was exactly the partnership we were looking for in an exchange that really treasures and protects their users now and for the future.”
ARCC Staking Program
With over 12,000,000 ALGO (2.4M USD) in reserve holdings, the ARCC project seeks to continuously run staking programs with the aim of making staking accessible to all traders and rewarding the smaller traders first. It is confident of its ability to achieve this because the project was fully funded by the founders and did not require any presale, ICO or IEO, therefore there is no hidden or excess supply in the market and all funds raised were deposited into the ARCC currency reserve.
The ARCC staking program will be conducted in 3 phases, each running for 30 days. The details of each phase are as follows:
Phase 1: 28th May 2020, 30 Days
Annualized Return: 151.82%
Min/Max Contribution: 88–188 ARCC (41.36–88.36 USDT)
Total Monthly Return: 8.00%
Total Staking Supply: 88,888 ARCC
Phrase 2: 28th June 2020, 30 Days
Annualized Return: 81.64%
Min/Max Contribution: 388–1888 ARCC (182.36–887.36 USDT)
Total Monthly Return: 5.10%
Total Staking Supply: 888,888 ARCC
Phrase 3: 28th July 2020, 30 Days
Annualized Return: 28.02%
Min/Max Contribution: 3888–18888 ARCC (1827.36–8877.36 USDT)
Total Monthly Return: 2.08%
Total Staking Supply: 8,888,888 ARCC
IBMR.io decided to launch the ARCC staking program with BiKi Exchange because it believes the BiKi platform creates real value instead of speculative trading value for its community and gives the project a platform to create a strong long term value proposition. Sinjin David Jung, managing director of IBMR.io comments: “We expect to analyze this 3-month promotion and make changes so we can best share the value of ARCC with BiKi’s members. Our objective is to be the best project on BiKi and become a top 20 coin globally in the next 1 year!”
ARCC Updates
In the coming months, the ARCC project will implement an aggressive development schedule and will launch at least 1 beta and 1 MVP site by Q4 2020. They will also announce at least 3 major partnerships which will aid in the adoption and use of ARCC on BiKi.

About ARPA

ARPA is a blockchain-based solution for privacy-preserving computation, enabled by Multi-Party Computation (“MPC”). Founded in April 2018, the goal of ARPA is to separate data utility from ownership, and enable data renting. ARPA’s MPC protocol creates ways for multiple entities to collaboratively analyze data and extract data synergies, while keeping each party’s data input private and secure. ARPA allows secret sharing of private data, and the correctness of computation is verifiable using information-theoretic Message Authentication Code (MAC).
Developers can build privacy-preserving dApps on blockchains compatible with ARPA. Some immediate use cases include: credit anti-fraud, secure data wallet, precision marketing, joint AI model training, key management systems, etc. For example, banks using the ARPA network can share their credit blacklist with each other for risk management purposes without exposing their customer data or privacy.
Team members have worked at leading institutions such as Google, Amazon, Huawei, Fosun, Tsinghua University, Fidelity Investments. ARPA is currently assisting the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology in setting the national standard for secure multi-party computation. ARPA is a corporate member of MPC Alliance and IEEE and is in partnership with fortune 500 companies to implement proof-of-concepts and MPC products. In 2019, ARPA was named as the Top 10 most innovative blockchain companies in China by China Enterprise News and China Software Industry Association.

ORYX Business Proposal ( Pitch Deck Inclusive)

ORYX Business Proposal ( Pitch Deck Inclusive)

https://preview.redd.it/v66kftruqd151.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a4149b2b027a114e40b1ce389dbad1c97783f300
What are the weaknesses and problems in the industry that your project is solving?
Centralized Marketplaces are harming the E-Commerce Industry.
Major marketplaces are actually causing harm to the E-Commerce industry. The current model for marketplaces involves overcharging buyers and unfairly treating sellers. Centralized market leaders focus too much on making sure that their own sites grow, leading them to punish sellers by taking more money from them and forcing them to pay for services which they do not need. The problem is that these markets think they have no genuine competition. At this point, the biggest centralized marketplaces are convinced that their actions will not negatively affect their stature. They can make arbitrary rules, they can charge extortionate rates, and they can change their platform with the click of their fingers. There are no checks and balances. While governments may step in at times to ensure that matters regarding taxation and employment law are being followed, there is nobody who steps in to make sure that the platforms themselves are actually fair to the consumer.

https://preview.redd.it/nqdl36zxqd151.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f5b6ce999b56e0ded5c340ffb7da75ccdb86431d
What impact can your project have on society and the nation?
A decentralized platform pulls its strength from the fact that all members of its ecosystem are important. This means that many of the rules and guidelines regarding the sale of goods can be decided (or at least discussed) by actual users. Buyers and sellers would have the ability to consider the guidelines on the marketplaces because the marketplace would actually value them.
The impact that will be felt by users, members and countries of our project is to make it easier for all services needed by all crypto members and non crypto members, because we have several platforms that are very useful for all members, and it's all under the ORYX project. Non crypto members will know more about crypto because of the platform that we serve. Because we have 2 systems on each of our platforms, which can be used by the public and some of the platforms that we have are very related to one another and can also support the popularity of members, content creators, influencers, companies with their founders, artists and others. For now we have several MVPs, including social media platform, video streaming platform, hiring platform and instant exchanges platform. And our future plan will be to create an MVP in the form of a gaming platform, wallet platform, onlineshop platform and others that can be useful for members throughout the country which support crypto companies.

https://preview.redd.it/kd49dcbzqd151.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=df61939663365591a492fea64c4f2b6b575493ff
What is your Exit Goal?
Our goal to make this project is
  1. Make it easy for users or members to meet the needs of both primary and secondary with our services.
  2. Creating several brands under ORYX, and these brands have different platforms, but they are interconnected with one another, creating an excellent ecosystem.
  3. We want to develop our project in several countries.
  4. Creating the best economic system for members.
  5. Introducing non crypto members to know about crypto so that more crypto members throughout the country will support the crypto company.
Why are you looking for Funding, what will Funding be used for? - What is your Business Plan & Strategies for 3 to 5 years?
There are several stages in the use of funds if we get these funds, including them :
  1. We need funds to launch IEO on one of the exchanges in Korea. If we do an IEO there, there is a crowdfunding agency that wants to help us get investors and direct investors to take part in our IEO in one of the Korean exchanges. They have many follower investors from Korea and they are official agencies that work with OKEX, they are Pantera.
  2. If our IEO is complete and successful, this is the time for us to continue developing our project, upgrade some of the MVPs that we have made, create a number of other MVPs and others.
  3. Create an official office for our project.
  4. Listing our tokens on some of the top 10 exchanges.
  5. Recruit several employees whose expertise we really need so that all the management in our project can run better.
  6. Conducting large-scale publications on several crypto news websites about our project.
  7. Market maker for the price of our tokens, the minimum target can always be stable for our token prices, but we have a buyback system of some of the profits generated on our project to prevent the decline in the price of our tokens.

Our plan for the future :
  1. Go globally, have several offices in several part of the world
  2. Having more than 8 different platforms and interconnected with one another.
  3. Facilitate all payments with ORX tokens
  4. ORX tokens listing on some of the top 10 exchanges

About ARPA

ARPA is a blockchain-based solution for privacy-preserving computation, enabled by Multi-Party Computation (“MPC”). Founded in April 2018, the goal of ARPA is to separate data utility from ownership, and enable data renting. ARPA’s MPC protocol creates ways for multiple entities to collaboratively analyze data and extract data synergies, while keeping each party’s data input private and secure. ARPA allows secret sharing of private data, and the correctness of computation is verifiable using information-theoretic Message Authentication Code (MAC).
Developers can build privacy-preserving dApps on blockchains compatible with ARPA. Some immediate use cases include: credit anti-fraud, secure data wallet, precision marketing, joint AI model training, key management systems, etc. For example, banks using the ARPA network can share their credit blacklist with each other for risk management purposes without exposing their customer data or privacy.
Team members have worked at leading institutions such as Google, Amazon, Huawei, Fosun, Tsinghua University, Fidelity Investments. ARPA is currently assisting the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology in setting the national standard for secure multi-party computation. ARPA is a corporate member of MPC Alliance and IEEE and is in partnership with fortune 500 companies to implement proof-of-concepts and MPC products. In 2019, ARPA was named as the Top 10 most innovative blockchain companies in China by China Enterprise News and China Software Industry Association.

The anti-Japan sentiment in this sub is pretty toxic and stupid

Since there are gonna be some people saying things like "yOu aMeRiCaNs gO hOmE", I would first like to say I am ethnically and legally a Korean. And to add more on to my background, I have been flying in and out of Korea since I was 1 year old. I lived about 2/3 of my life in Korea and 1/3 in English speaking countries (NA and OCE). So I think I can look at the Korean society and culture from an outsider point of view, but with the knowledge of an insider and vice versa.
Since this summer, I believe, the anti-Japan sentiment has grown for some reasons but mostly from the trade dispute between ROK and JP. I have made exchanges with some users on this sub through comments about this topic and more than often when a user sees that I hold a different worldview they attack me for some reason. I totally understand that people have different values and backgrounds thus agreeing on trivial topics like this is not easy but after seeing this post today, I felt that the anti-Japanese sentiment on this sub is so toxic and stupid. The comments on the post were mostly mockery towards Japan. No single reasoning or contemplation on the article itself, but only comments laughing at other's failure is the state of the anti-Japan sentiment in this sub. The comments on this other post talking about the anti-Korea sentiment in Japan was also pretty painful to read because they never mention the same default emotions Koreans have towards Japan.
The reason why I think all this is toxic and stupid is because I know that 90% of the people in this sub are not even Korean. And almost 70% of the people on this sub have an intermediate or lower reading level in Korean. (/Korea Survey 2019). So inevitably the majority demographic (35 years old and younger) that come in this sub are mostly people from other countries who can't even read Korean properly, but hate Japan??? What has Japan done to you? I'm pretty sure nobody in this sub lived in Korea between 1910-1945. Funnily enough, my grandpa who is almost 90 now has lived through these years and he absolutely loves Japan.
To me, it just seems like a bunch of foreigners learned some stuff about the ROK-JP rivalry from their friends and media or whatever, and pretend to be supportive to the country they are staying in. Which is pretty weird because I thought western philosophy has evolved out of the totalitarian/nationalistic trend that ended in 1945 with Nazi Germany. Why is it that when it comes to ROK vs. JP people lose all individual reasoning and instead choose to become a zealot of nationalistic values that has no benefit in the well-being of either the nation or individual?
I would like to address some serious flaws of the anti-Japan movement.
  1. How do you define boycott-Japan? If you're going to boycott Japanese products how far will you go? If you find that the cabus/train you are riding has Japanese parts in it, which is a very high possibility, will you not take it? I've seen a Korean owning a Japanese themed restaurant in Seoul that was going broke because people won't eat "Japanese". In the same sense, why people who own Japanese cars should be apologetic to everyone else? Why are people bullying these car owners? So, to some people the definition of Japanese is anything that was influenced by Japanese culture. But how can a country can not be influenced by its neighbor country? Especially when Korea was colonized by Japan for 35 years, how can anything cannot be influenced by Japan in Korea? Even the words people use in day to day life there are many Japanese nuances because modern Korean and Hangul were reinvented and became widely available during the colonization era. Before Japan reintroduced Hangul to the Koreans, the Joseon dynasty banned any use of Hangul. Will you abandon Hangul and the modern Korean language? A movement without a distinct definition or goal only creates chaos and worst case it will affect the ones who were supposed to be protected by it.
  2. What has caused the whole boycott-Japan movement? Did Japan restricted exports to Korea for no reason? No. Japan had some good reasons to restrict exports. North Korea has developed a blockchain that happens to be used for freight ships. They also stole a bunch of Bitcoins to fund their nuclear program. And Cho-Guk had ties to both bitcoin and freight ships. And Cho-Guk himself is blatantly a Leninist while the US secretary of defense is openly quoting that president Moon's policy is benefiting China and North Korea. And Japan, which is also an ally of the US raised concerns that some of the strategical materials were smuggled into North Korea. The current administration basically said "F*** off" when they could simply show some paper work that the materials were used/shipped to somewhere else to prove their innocence. Why wouldn't Korea do this and embarrass Japan for their false allegations? The current administration had a very good chance at elevating their popularity without going through all the drama, which is still on effect, but chose to do nothing. What does that say to you?
  3. The boycott-Japan movement is not an organic movement. 민주연구원, a think tank under the Minjoo party released a research paper suggesting that they should use the emotional response to Japan's export restrictions to win the upcoming general elections. In Korea, propaganda from this side of the political spectrum is becoming more and more obvious since the 2008 US Beef protest. Back in 2008, MBC aired a program showing the "danger" of US beef, causing hundreds of thousands of people to storm the streets of Seoul. Brainwashed by one TV program, people lost their minds. So many Koreans thought everyone will all die from the Mad Cow Disease. But what now? American beef is now the best selling meet in Korea. Later the TV program was ruled as fake news by the supreme court and MBC made a statement with their apologies. And when you look at the ones who lead these protests based on fake news and mass lunacy, they are always the same people!
What I have learned is that many people in this sub underestimate the military/geopolitical climate of Korea. But again, with a 90% chance, I think that is just another naive point of view coming from someone who clearly doesn't understand Korean culture and history. However, I cannot tolerate when people actually push their ill-informed narrative on this sub to other people- where literally anyone on Earth can come and read posts and comments in the most widely used language.

Top 7 Bitcoin Scams

1. Malware Scams

Malware has long been the hallmark of many online scams. But with cryptocurrency, it poses an increased threat given the nature of the currency in and of itself.
Recently, a tech support site called Bleeping Computer issued a warning about cryptocurrency-targeting malware in hopes of saving customers from sending cryptocoins via transactions, reported Yahoo Finance.
"This type of malware, called CryptoCurrency Clipboard Hijackers, works by monitoring the Windows clipboard for cryptocurrency addresses, and if one is detected, will swap it out with an address that they control," wrote Lawrence Abrahams, computer forensics and creator of Bleeping Computer.
The malware, CryptoCurrency Clipboard Hijackers (which reportedly manages 2.3 million bitcoin addresses) switches addresses used to transfer cryptocoin with ones the malware controls - thus transferring the coins to the scammers instead. And, according to Asia Times, even MacOS malware has been connected to malware scams involving cryptocurrency investors using trusted sites like Slack and Discord chats - coined "OSX.Dummy."

2. Fake Bitcoin Exchanges - BitKRX

Surely one of the easiest ways to scam investors is to pose as an affiliate branch of a respectable and legitimate organization. Well, that's exactly what scammers in the bitcoin field are doing.
South Korean scam BitKRX presented itself as a place to exchange and trade bitcoin, but was ultimately fraudulent. The fake exchange took on part of the name of the real Korean Exchange (KRX), and scammed people out of their money by posing as a respectable and legitimate cryptocurrency exchange.
BitKRX claimed to be a branch of the KRX, a creation of KOSDAQ, South Korean Futures Exchange, and South Korean Stock Exchange, according to Coin Telegraph.
BitKRX used this faux-affiliation to ensnare people to use their system. The scam was exposed in 2017.

3. Ponzi Scheme - MiningMax

"Ponzi bitcoin scam" has got to be the worst combination of words imaginable for financial gurus. And, the reality is just as bad.
Several organizations have scammed people out of millions with Ponzi schemes using bitcoins, including South Korean website MiningMax. The site, which was not registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, promised to provide investors with daily ROI's in exchange for an original investment and commission from getting others to invest (basically, a Ponzi scheme). Apparently, the site was asking people to invest $3,200 for daily ROI's over two years, and a $200 referral commission for every personally recruited investor, reports claim.
MiningMax's domain was privately registered in mid-2016, and had a binary compensation structure. The fraudulent crypto-currency scam was reported by affiliates, resulting in 14 arrests in Korea in December of 2017.
Korea has long been a leader in technological developments - bitcoin is no exception. However, after recent controversy, it seems as though this is changing.
"But a lot of governments are looking at this very carefully," Yoo Byung-joon, business administration professor at Seoul National University and co-author of the 2015 research paper "Is Bitcoin a Viable E-Business?: Empirical Analysis of the Digital Currency's Speculative Nature," told South China Morning Post in January. "Some are even considering putting their currencies on the blockchain system. The biggest challenge facing bitcoin now is the potential for misuse, but that's true of any new technology."

4. Fake Bitcoin Scam - My Big Coin

A classic (but no less dubious) scam involving bitcoin and cryptocurrency is simply, well, fake currency. One such arbiter of this faux bitcoin was My Big Coin. Essentially, the site sold fake bitcoin. Plain and simple.
In early 2018, My Big Coin, a cryptocurrency scam that lured investors into sinking an alleged $6 million, was sued by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, according to a CFTC case filed in late January.
The CFTC case further details that the suit was due to "commodity fraud and misappropriation related to the ongoing solicitation of customers for a virtual currency known as My Big Coin (MBC)," further charging the scam with "misappropriating over $6 million from customers by, among other things, transferring customer funds into personal bank accounts, and using those funds for personal expenses and the purchase of luxury goods."
Among other things, the site fraudulently claimed that the coin was being actively traded on several platforms, and even mislead investors by claiming it was also partnered with MasterCard, according to the CFTC case.
Those sued included Randall Carter, Mark Gillespie and the My Big Coin Pay, Inc.

5. ICO Scam - Bitcoin Savings and Trust and Centra Tech

Still other scammers have used ICO's - initial coin offerings - to dupe users out of their money.
Along with the rise in blockchain-backed companies, fake ICOs became popular as a way to back these new companies. However, given the unregulated nature of bitcoin itself, the door has been wide open for fraud.
Most ICO frauds have taken place through getting investors to invest in or through fake ICO websites using faulty wallets, or by posing as real cryptocurrency-based companies.
Notably, $32 million Centra Tech garnered celebrity support (most famously from DJ Khaled), but was exposed for ICO fraud back in April of 2018, according to Fortune. The company was sued for misleading investors and lying about products, among other fraudulent activities.
The famous DJ wrote his support in a caption on Instagram back in 2017.
"I just received my titanium centra debit card. The Centra Card & Centra Wallet app is the ultimate winner in Cryptocurrency debit cards powered by CTR tokens!" Khaled wrote.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission even issued a warning in 2017 about ICO scams and faux investment opportunities, brought on by a slew of celebrities who promoted certain ICOs (like Paris Hilton and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to name a few).
"Any celebrity or other individual who promotes a virtual token or coin that is a security must disclose the nature, scope, and amount of compensation received in exchange for the promotion," the SEC wrote in an Investor Alert in 2017. "A failure to disclose this information is a violation of the anti-touting provisions of the federal securities laws."
Another example is Bitcoin Savings and Trust, which was fined $40.7 million in 2014 by the SEC for creating fake investments and using a Ponzi scheme to scam investors. According to Coin Telegraph, Trenton Shavers, the organization's leader, allegedly scammed investors into giving him 720,000 bitcoins promising a 7% weekly interest on investments - which he then used to pay back old investors and even fill his personal bank accounts.

6. Bitcoin Gold Scam - mybtgwallet.com

Nothing catches the eye of the naïve quite like the promise of gold - bitcoin gold, of course.
That is exactly what mybtgwallet.com did to unsuspecting bitcoin investors.
According to CNN, the bitcoin gold (BTG) wallet duped investors out of $3.2 million in 2017 by promising to allow them to claim their bitcoin gold. The website allegedly used links on a legitimate website (Bitcoin Gold) to get investors to share their private keys or seeds with the scam, as this old screenshot from the website shows.
Before the scam was done, the website managers (slash scammers) was able to get their hands on $107,000 worth of bitcoin gold, $72,000 of litecoin, $30,000 of ethereum, and $3 million of bitcoin, according to CNN.
Bitcoin Gold, the site's wallet used in the scam, began investigating shortly after, but the site remains controversial. Still, firm released a warning to bitcoin investors.
"It's worth reminding everyone that it will never be truly safe to enter your private key or mnemonic phrase for a pre-existing wallet into any online website," Bitcoin Gold wrote. "When you want to sweep new coins from a pre-fork wallet address, best practice is the same as after other forks: Send your old coins to a new wallet first, before you expose the private keys of the original wallet. Following this basic rule of private key management greatly reduces your risk of theft."

7. Pump and Dump Scam

While this type of scam is certainly not relegated to just bitcoin (thank you for the education, "The Wolf of Wall Street"), a pump-and-dump scam is especially dangerous in the internet space.
The basic idea is that investors hype up (or "pump up") a certain bitcoin - that is usually an alternative coin that is very cheap but high risk - via investor's websites, blogs, or even Reddit, according to The Daily Dot. Once the scammers pump up a certain bitcoin enough, skyrocketing its value, they cash out and "dump" their bitcoin onto the naïve investors who bought into the bitcoin thinking it was the next big thing.
Bittrex, a popular bitcoin exchange site, released a set of guidelines to avoid bitcoin pump-and-dump scams.
While "stackin' penny stocks" may sound like an appealing way to earn an extra buck (thanks to its glamorization by Jordan Belfort), messing in bitcoin scams is nothing to smirk at.

How to Avoid Bitcoin Scams

With the inevitable rise of bitcoin in current and coming years, it is becoming increasingly important to understand and be on the lookout for bitcoin scams that could cost you thousands. As more people become interested in Bitcoin, more people are also likely to try and pull off a scam.
There is no one formula to avoiding being scammed, but reading up on the latest bitcoin red flags, keeping information private, and double checking sources before investing in anything are good standard procedures that may help save you from being duped. Cryptocurrency can be a confusing topic even for the experienced Bitcoin enthusiast, so the more you read up on the world of Bitcoin, the more prepared you can be. After all, knowledge is power.
