维卡币不仅涉嫌欺诈,而且可能会拖累整个加密货币行业

Bruce Fenton:Onecoin Has No Value,When It Collapses,Regulators Will Blame All Cryptocurrencies

近日Bitcoin Foundation创始人Bruce Fenton表示,维卡币(OneCoin)只是一个庞氏骗局,其发起人应该受到逮捕。此前业内对该币已有不少批判声音。Cointelegraph对Bruce进行了采访,谈话中他对自己之前的看法做出了解释。

对维卡币的质疑声在于曼谷举行的一场会议后达到顶峰。该会议上,维卡币公司宣称其建立的新区块链体系已成功开始运作,并且旧币转移已完成。但似乎并没有证据可以证明此话的真实性。Cointelegraph和Bruce Fenton讨论了当下的情况:

Cointelegraph:几天前,维卡币公司宣称其已经开始使用自己(建立的)新区块链且已转移全部旧币。你不觉得这令人惊叹吗?

Bruce Fenton:呵。

CT:如果有任何问题,应该是维卡币的名声会受到影响。为什么你还有业内其他一些人都对此表示担心呢?

BF:因为如果维卡币奔溃了,数千人的钱打了水漂,监管人员就会将此怪罪到所有加密货币身上。

CT:他们给出的能够证明自己的区块链存在的证据还不够充分吗?

BF:当然不,他们展示的只是一个假视频。而且,区块链本身并不能说明任何问题,无法支撑维卡币的价值。

CT:维卡币的数量和掘币的时间惊讶到你了吗?

BF:这些并没有任何意义,而且很有可能是捏造的。我可以今天就创建一个新币,然后发行100万个。但这不代表这个币就有价值了。我的币怎么会有价值呢?只有别人肯为这个币付钱的时候,它才具有价值。没有人愿意为维卡币付钱。这整个就是个骗局。

CT:听说有8400多人参加了泰国的发布会?

BF:对,但8400个人参加了就能证明这不是一个骗局吗?Ruja博士创造了一种新的加密货币的概念,忽悠人们给她钱。事实就是这样。如果你投资了,真是抱歉,那些钱不可能回来了。维卡币在公开市场没有任何价值,这就是为什么它不在市场上交易。

CT:我们来看一下维卡币公司的说明。这种所谓的电子货币欠缺了什么重要因素呢?

BF:好,那区块链在哪呢?我能看看代码吗?具体是基于什么技术呢?有没有区块探索器?这个探索器公开透明吗?这些币之前在哪里,现在是如何发行的?钱交给维卡币后去哪了?你怎么知道你拥有多少维卡币呢?

CT:存不存在没有钱包的加密货币?

BF:维卡币没有钱包这点也是个问题。

CT:那“了解你的客户(KYC)”系列制度有什么影响呢?是不是正好与加密货币背道而驰?

BF:我不是很关心这个。我认为这只是个政府用来更好追踪民众的工具。

CT:如果那些投资维卡币的人愿意听取你的意见,你有什么想说的吗?

BF:当然。要进行独立的调查研究。有很多网站专门解释为什么维卡币就是个骗局。同时还应去了解一下区块链技术,以及是什么可以给予其价值。

真实区块链存在的证据:无

一群主要技术开发人员、商人、使用者和投资者在Github发文表达了对维卡币这个加密货币组织非法活动的深切担忧。专家说这个公司在香港会议上所呈现的视频是假的。

文章说:“目前没有证据证明这样一个区块链真的存在。”目前已知的事实是,维卡币没有钱包,也缺失了一些加密货币的主要因素。

缺乏透明度

在他们看来,维卡币的回报承诺“数学上就不成立,而且模糊不清”。文章指出,该公司使用误导性信息这一点令人担忧,尤其是拿准备好的视频来让观众误以为其正在“挖掘”。

作者强调:“维卡币随意地赋予虚构的代币以价值,而这个代币在所有主要交易所和其他公开市场都没有真正的价值,也没有自己独立的价值评算。”

行业声誉

Bruce和其他一些同行认为维卡币的所作所为对于区块链和加密货币的生态系统有着恶劣的影响。他们认为监管人员为此会加大对于该行业活动和投资的压力。然而该公司推广中所展现的并不能真正代表区块链的精髓,这才是最令他们气愤的。

发起预警

这些专业人士因此呼吁当局对该公司的活动开展调查并对公众进行预警。“我们希望维卡币公司的违法行为得到查处,有关当局应考虑发布消费者警示。”

Bruce Fenton, founder of Bitcoin Foundation, adds his voice to the ubiquitous claims that OneCoin is a Ponzi scheme and its perpetrators should be arrested. In an interview given to Cointelegraph he explains why.

Allegations of scam have reached its fever pitch after OneCoin claimed to have successfully launched and transferred old coins to a new Blockchain?at an event in Bangkok. It appears the company’s claims are unsubstantiated. ?

Cointelegraph spoke with Bruce Fenton about the situation:

Cointelegraph: A couple of days ago OneCoin claimed to have successfully switched on their new Blockchain transferring coins from the old one to the new? Ain’t you impressed?

Bruce Fenton: Heh.

CT: Looks like if anything goes wrong it’s the reputation of OneCoin that’s at stake here. Why are you and some members of the community Concerned?

BF: Because when OneCoin collapses and thousands lose their money the regulators will blame all cryptocurrencies.

CT: Haven’t they showed enough proof of the existence of their Blockchain?

BF: Oh no ? it’s just a fake video they showed. Also, a Blockchain doesn’t mean anything. It doesn’t back the value.

CT: Do the numbers of coins and minutes they were mined raise eyebrows?

BF: It means nothing. And is unlikely true. I can launch a coin today and issue a billion coins. It doesn’t mean they have values. Why would my coin have value? It’s only worth something if people will pay. No one will pay for OneCoin. It’s a scam.

CT: Not less than 8400 people were at the launch in Thailand...

BF: Okay but would 8400 people mean it’s not a scam? Look ? it’s like this ? Dr. Ruja just made up this idea for a cryptocurrency and gets people to give her money. That’s it. If you invested I'm sorry but that money is gone. Onecoin has no value in the open market ? that's why it doesn't trade.

CT: Let's look at Onecoin’s claims. What cardinal features are the so-called digital currency missing?

BF: Well where is the Blockchain? Can I see the code? What is the tech based on? Is there a block explorer? Is it transparent? Where were the coins before and how are they issued? Where does the money go once it's given to Onecoin? How do you know the amount of coins you have?

CT: Do we have cryptocurrency without a wallet?

BF: Not having a wallet is also a concern.

CT: What about Packages that requires Know Your Customer (KYO). Looks like that contradicts cryptocurrency?

BF: I don't care much about that.. It's mainly a device for the state to track people better.

CT: If those investing in Onecoin care to listen, do you have a message for them?

BF: Sure, research independently. There are entire sites that focus on why this is a scam… Also learn about what Blockchain tech really is and ask what would give this any value.

No evidence of the real Blockchain

The group made up of leading technical developers, business people, adopters and investors, in a release on Github expressed their sincere and worried concerns about the illegal activities of the Cryptocurrency outfit.

Experts say that what the company has shown on screen at the Hong kong event was actually faked.

“There is no evidence that there really is such a Blockchain by any readable definition,” the release stated. As a matter of facts up to now Onecoin has no wallet combined with some missing cardinal features of cryptocurrency.

Lack of Transparency

In their view Onecoin’s promises on returns are “mathematical impossible and shrouded in obscurity”.

The statement said that the use of misleading information, in particular the use of stock footage claiming it was "mining" a cryptocurrency is alarming.

The release stressed:

“Onecoin places arbitrary values on fictitious tokens which do not have a relation to real value on any major exchange or other free market or independent measurement of value.”

Industry’s Reputation

Bruce and his peers consider the activities of Onecoin as an enormous blight on the Blockchain and the cryptocurrency ecosystem. ?They believe this could lead to regulators clamping down on the activities and their investments. What they are clearly unhappy about is the false representation of Blockchain in the company’s marketing presentations.

Call to Book

The group are therefore calling on the authorities to look into the activities of the group. They are also appealing to the authorities to warn the public as well.

“We request that Onecoin be investigated for violation of existing laws and that your agency consider issuing a consumer warning.”
