Yet another “brilliant” scheme from a cryptobro. Naturally this caused a gold-rush for scammers who outsourced random people via the gig economy to open PRs for this yml file (example)

      Damn, OneCoin was bad. Ruja Ignatova was the first crypto scammer I’ve seen talked about in national news and she was also made fun of in a news comedy show over here. A true scam pioneer.

      Technically not a cryptosis as onecoin wasn’t a cryptocurrency, that was part of the scam.

        There’s two kinds of crypto scams: Ones that actually involve crypto and ones that don’t.

        Vague, possibly impossible to implement promises about proposed future functionality are an integral part of the crypto sphere!

          Fair perspective. It is a scam happing in the crypto sphere but that doesn’t necessarily make her a cryptosis. I mean, it comes down to what makes a cryptosis a cryptosis, acting in the crypto sphere or believing in crypto or holding crypto?
