News about the Bitcoin Economy

I've created this topic because I'm interested in the Bitcoin. But not only the bitcoin; I'm interested in all the digital currency and everything around it. E-wallet, mining, exchange and more.

‘Neucoin Will Have More Consumers Using It Than Bitcoin within One Year’ - Founder

‘Neucoin Will Have More Consumers Using It Than Bitcoin within One Year’ - Founder | Bitcoin Economy | Scoop.it
According to official NeuCoin summary: “The foundations are overseen by independent Council Members and Advisors, but are ultimately controlled by coin holders (1 coin = 1 vote). This structure makes NeuCoin more decentralized and accountable than Bitcoin, Ripple or Stellar."

unspy's curator insight, October 8, 2015 1:20 PM

This article fails to mention several key issues:
 

1. Neucoin is a centralized premine coin with 99.9% concentrated on the hands of founder, angel investors and team members. So called foundations are controlled by the team. Only 0.1% was sold to pre-sale buyers, the worst distribution of any altcoin out there.
 

2. Founder of Neucoin (Daniel Kaufman) and top investor (Josh Abrams) have a shady spyware background. Their previous company Direct Revenue has illegally infected millions of computers and was sued twice, by the Federal Trade Commission and New York State. Bloomberg, ZDnet, NBC and others all have articles online about this fiasco.
 

This fact alone should be a major red-flag for any computer user.
