RipoffCoin: A Scrypt Based Coin with an Honest Scam

Courtesy of RipoffCoin

RIPO Accepted: RWensr185ZVwRPkTGmYJp1PyGY2eRHtW8n

RipoffCoin is a next generation cryptocurrency with an unique flair compared to common scams that the crypto community all seem to love.  The pre-announcement ninja IPO without escrow was launched on August 2nd, 2014 with the intent of distributing 1% of all coins to early investors.  To further complement the ninja IPO, the open source software and coin distribution was not available at launch on August 2nd, 2014 by fully anonymous member of by the name of RipoffCoinDevTeam, created on July 30th, 2014.  The crypto identity of RipoffCoinDevTeam and possible dev team members remains unknown.  Also missing is the background information of the dev remains unknown but we are told the dev team are mega competent and boasting with at least 2 years of English under their belts, which seems legit enough to invest your children's college funds.

RipoffCoin is an innovative altcoin that has the Scrypt proof of work algorithm with KGW.  There is a total of 12,000,000 coins and block rewards are specially distributed in a unique special block distribution for blocks 1 to block 10,000.  Early bird miners would find big block rewards as a reward for mining early during the ninja launch.  After block 10,000, common block rewards consists of 50 RIPO which will halve every 200,000 blocks after.

The concept behind RipoffCoin is based on being an honest scam.  Unlike many scam coins or possible scam coins, the scam is upright straightforward with their devious plan.  There's no white lies or empty promises of innovative features that would never come, there's only brutal honesty in a place where no other scam coin has gone before.  RipoffCoin is a coin for the crypto elites to play with as they have with the rest of the pump and dump cryptocurrencies.  The community relies on community donation because there is no premine, just kidding, there's a hidden premine of 1.125%.  Community donations is still welcomed because the devs would obviously need another fund to dip their hands into since we all know the premine is never enough to satisfy anyone's greed.

RipoffCoin offers many different special bounties and giveaways to obtain some RIPO to keep things interesting.  Special bounties includes spreading FUD, admitting not knowing what FUD means, calling RipoffCoin a scam, calling RipoffCoin a ripoff, creating hype and creating a big pump.  There are also giveaways on Twitter and currently RipoffCoin is having a Meme Contest.  RipoffCoin is also considering implementing a few enjoyable features in the future which includes RIPO LOIC, RIPO Proof of Stupidity, RIPO Trade, RIPO BlubberOut, RIPO Share, RIPO TOR with their state of the art anon mixer.

RipoffCoin is not your typical altcoin because no other altcoin dev would literally lay out the details of the scam.  There is a promising future for the RipoffCoin community, but the only drawback that may deter future investors from buying RIPO would be the anonymity of the dev himself and whether if there is actually a devious scam plan in play as the name insinuates.  If you can ignore the risk of trusting the unknown then you may find RipoffCoin to be a long term investment even if it's not intended.

Greenbacks: A Pure PoS Based Coin with a Real World Adoption Plan

Courtesy of Greenbacks

GB Accepted: gWyzv2WB1mRfZHB6Gk33W8HvhbfGqTALzs

Greenbacks is a next generation cryptocurrency with an unique real world adoption concept.  There will be 20,000,000 coins distributed through an ICO sale of 10% of the total coin supply similar to ViaCoin's distribution model.  The pre-announcement was launched on August 15th, 2014 and the ICO sale will continue for 7 days.  Greenbacks is founded by fully anonymous member of by the name of greenbacksteam, created on July 20th, 2014.  Although the founders may reveal their real identities with pictures at a later date but do have plans to start a company behind Greenbacks Inc., according to the dev team.  The distribution model will be held via a trusted escrow member through a pre-sale website and each investor's coin distribution amount will be proportional to their total bid contribution which will in return determine the overall value.

Although there will not be a proof of work phase, Greenbacks is an innovative altcoin that has the XGB proof of work algorithm.  As mentioned above, there is a total of 20,000,000 coins and is a fully operational proof of stake coin with a 10% annual interest rate.  Greenbacks is capable of TOR integration, but the dev team have not decided to implement the anonymous technology as of yet due to their conflicting interest of acceptance from mass merchants.

The wallet's user interface is a next generation wallet with several built in functions compared to the usual simple first generation QT wallets.  The side tabs includes Overview for viewing balances, Send coins for sending coins, Receive coins for receiving addresses, Transactions for list of transactions, and Address Book for list of wallet addresses.  Special side tabs includes Block Explorer for block chain search and Social for IRC chat access.

The concept behind Greenbacks is based on real world adoption and merchant acceptance, which has been a 2 month process in the making and counting.  The Greenbacks dev team  has developed a plugin for merchants to simply accept GB and is currently working to achieve GB acceptance at ATM machines.  With the ICO funds for future development funding, Greenbacks may have a clear chance to achieve one of their biggest goal of creating physical reloadable Greenbacks Cards similar to Moneypak and Vanilla Cards, except the currency used will be GB.  If the Greenbacks team can achieve this feat then services like Prypto scratchcards could become obsolete, but luckily GreenBacks have developed a strategic partnership with Prypto.  This is an ambitious goal and a long term project, but the Greenbacks team hope to show their presence at your local Walmart and Walgreen stores in the near future.

Greenbacks marketing plans include releasing the QT wallet and obtaining custom Prypto scratch cards loaded with GB on launch day.  There is also plans to create physical bills and coins with QR codes on them, which will be distributed out at various Bitcoin and Altcoin conferences.  Through marketing, Greenbacks hope to be accepted by as well as building more long term partnerships with various businesses in order to reign as one of the top coins in Cryptoland.  Aside from strategic partnerships, GreenBacks hope to bring innovative features such as rewarding coin holders with a loyalty program and a community crowdsourced project site.

Greenbacks is not your typical altcoin because no other altcoin dev has been able to make real world adoption feel so easy.  You may find this coin to be ambitious because many coins have failed to achieve real world adoption, but you can be certain that this is not your typical pump and dump coin.  You may find Greenbacks to be a long term investment.

BT Accepted: 

BitTor is a next generation cryptocurrency with an unique Tor based privacy development concept.  The open source software was launched on July 7th, 2014 by fully anonymous member of by the name of bittorcrypto, created on July 26th, 2014.  The crypto identity of bittorcrypto remains unknown, but in a way that anonymity makes perfect sense in this case since BitTor's main objective is to have the ultimate Tor based privacy coin and the best place to start is with the dev's anonymity.  The dev team consist of 3 devs, but they are currently in the process of hiring 3 to 4 more team members in order for BitTor to be constantly developed and updated which will allow BitTor to remain competitive and valuable in the crypto community.

BitTor is an innovative altcoin that has the X13 proof of work algorithm with a 120 second block timer.  There is a sense of rarity with BitTor coins because there is a limited total amount of 1,000,000 total coins.  To prevent instamining, the first 150 blocks had a block reward of 0.1 coin.  Whereas the first 600,000 blocks have a block reward of 1 coin, afterwards a 0.5 coin block reward up to block 1,200,000, and finishing off the proof of work phase with a block reward of 0.25 coin up to block 1,600,000.

Currently BitTor is hosting a Twitter giveaway of 2 BT to the first 500 people that follow them on Twitter, retweet the entry post, and send them your BT wallet address via Twitter.  You can start your entry by clicking here (

The wallet's user interface is a first generation QT wallet with the standard functions as you would normally see.  However the special features of Tor integration is a feature that is not visible to the eye and is the basis of BitTor.  BitTor is still in development with added privacy features, which would allow an updated wallet a feasible future feature.  There are more features to come and the community is waiting in anticipation.

The concept behind BitTor is based on the Tor's privacy technology, which is the holy grail to anonymity online.  In addition to launching with Tor integration intact, the dev team is also currently developing more  anonymity features to complement the technology.  The dev team plan on promoting Tor related trades with the use of BitTor because they have been avid users of Bitcoin but felt the crypto community needed a coin that stressed the importance of privacy features.  The small premine of 0.3% will be used to further develop privacy features, bounties and giveaways.  In addition to hiring more devs, they are also looking to hire a PR manager to appeal to new investors and keep the community up to date with behind the scenes news on current projects.

BitTor is not your typical altcoin because no other altcoin's existence revolves around the privacy capabilities of Tor.  You may not know what is the finalized road map of this coin due to continued development, but you can be certain that this is not your typical pump and dump coin.  You may find BitTor to be a long term investment.

"Tor (previously an acronym for The Onion Router) is free software for enabling online anonymity and resisting censorship. Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of more than five thousand relays to conceal a user's location or usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult for Internet activity to be traced back to the user: this includes "visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms". Tor's use is intended to protect the personal privacy of users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential communication by keeping their Internet activities from being monitored. An extract of a Top Secret appraisal by the National Security Agency (NSA) characterized Tor as "the King of high secure, low latency Internet anonymity" with "no contenders for the throne in waiting". This system will now be adapted and used in BitTor with the objective of making transactions as anonymous as possible." - bittorcrypto
