Bitconnect Attends Largest Blockchain Conference

in #bitcoin4 years ago

Bitconnect is a cryptocurrency investment platform that gets a lot of negative attention. Many people deem this website a scam and untrustworthy. However, Bitconnect has existed for almost two years now and seems to become more trustworthy as each day passes. I just attended the Blockchain Expo of North America and sure enough, Bitconnect paid to be a gold sponsor and had a booth. Out of the hundreds of booths at this conference, the Bitconnect booth was packed with people. Today Bitconnect's credit card is open for registration and the card will be available for registration on December 15th.

I am currently an active member on Bitconnect and have been using the platform for 83 days. My experience has been great despite that most people on Steemit hate Bitconnect. I don't know if anyone remembers, but I was Steem from the beginning and Steem used to be called a scam too and it wasn't fun for the users. Well I think we are seeing a repeat with Bitconnect.

Take a look at my progress on Bitconnect Day 80 on the $100,000 loan challenge.


I am always in a dilemma about this coin. Do you know why this coin is propogated has scam ?

Because it has a couple similarities to a Ponzi Scheme such as a referral program and you invest money expecting to earn a return. Other then that this isn't a typical Ponzi Scheme. Also, Bitconnect wants the developers to remain anonymous similar to Bitcoin. People are skeptical investing in a platform with no face... unless it's Bitcoin of course.

The differences are Bitconnect has a cryptocurrency tied to worth $300 per coin. The website does not take your Bitcoin. You transfer Bitcoin to their site and exchange it for Bitconnect coin with other users on the internet. Once you have the Bitconnnect coin you can loan it to Bitconnect and earn interest on your investment daily. Bitconnect has been paying interest everyday since March 2016. The whole idea is that your Bitconnect tokens are being lent to a software trading bot that trades the volatility of Bitcoin vs. the US dollar. Sometimes the bot has 0% days, but again it averages out to 0.9% daily. Some people think these returns are not sustainable, but again THEY DON'T GUARANTEE INTEREST. I don't think the 0.9% per day is unrealistic because I can go on Bittrex and point out coins that have went up 100%, 80%, 60%, 30% within 24 hours. So a 1% per day gain doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Bitconnect can make money even if Bitcoin goes down.

FYI - SBD is trading at over $15 on bittrex right now, you've got over 50 in your wallet. Just thought you'd want to know!
