Bitconnect, long thought to be a ponzi scheme, or at at least very Ponzi-like in operation, has indicated it will be close its exchange and lending platform.


Bitconnect claims bad press and regulatory pressure as the reason for the implosion, both Texas and North Carolina have issued cease and desist letters to the organization, but many believe this would be occurring regardless.

Likewise, it's BCC token has tanked. Again: SHOCKER THERE!

Smells Like a Ponzi

Letters or no letters of cease and desist. This was heading down in flames one way or another. It reeks of GAW Miners, MLM, BitGold, and OneCoin. All probable or proven Ponzi's and Ponzi's always implode.

The concept of the model is to offer high earnings that are simply not sustainable, then use funds from new investors to pay investors before them, so on and so forth.

It never works and always eventually implodes.

In an announcement BitConnect stated:
This is to inform all community members that we are closing the Bitconnect lending and exchange platform. We are closing the lending operation immediately with the release of all outstanding loans. With release of your entire active loan in the lending wallet we are transferring all your lending wallet balance to your BitConnect wallet balance at 363.62 USD. This rate has been calculated based on last 15 days averages of the closing price registered on You are free to withdraw your BitConnect coin currently in QT wallets that was used for staking as well. We are also closing BCC exchange platform in 5 days. In short, we are closing lending service and exchange service while website will operate for wallet service, news and educational purposes 
The go on further to explain the reasons why in detail.
The reason for halt of lending and exchange platform has many reasons as follow:
  • The continuous bad press has made community members uneasy and created a lack of confidence in the platform.
  • We have received two Cease and Desist letters, one from the Texas State Securities Board, and one from the North Carolina Secretary of State Securities Division. These actions have become a hindrance for the legal continuation of the platform.
  • Outside forces have performed DDos attacks on platform several times and have made it clear that these will continue. These interruptions in service have made the platform unstable and have created more panic inside the community.
If they want to know why the bad press happens, they need look no further than their own website.

This is simply not sustainable and thus, not believable. This is where the concern comes from.

It's not bad press. It's true press.

How on earth it is they plan to promise earnings of 40% per month? Plus an additional 10% to 25% per day?

It's not possible and now conveniently it's never going to be possible either. The biggest shock of all is that so many people were still paying any attention to the platform.

You can read the announcement here and always remember.

If it walks like a duck... it's a fucking duck.

  1. Many binary operations are rippers. I invested about $20,000 then i decided to withdraw after several week but the withdrawal wasn’t successful, then I tried to contact the binary operation email and phone number, but got no response from them that was when everything started looking weird. Some weeks later I got a mail from them insisting I should invest more money if I want to withdraw my money which I rejected, and I never hear from them again that was when I knew I had been scammed. I was really devastated at those moment and felt so bad that my hard earn money is gone. After some month I came across a lot of testimonies on many bitcoin site how (cyberghost475@gmail dot com) had helped many people recovered there stolen, scammed or duped money on bitcoin or any other form on digital currency. I contact them and they promised to help me get my money back, asked me some personal details of the scammer which I provided.

  2. Hey, I invested 90% of my retirement payment on ICO Investment with the mindset of getting it multiplied and enjoying a better retirement life. It was sweet and smooth from the start, withdrawals were easy and consistent until it gets to a point I started to be denied withdrawals and that was how I lost all money, I couldn’t get my investment amount back not talk of the bonuses. I contacted several lawyers but it was all waste of time and money, they couldn’t render an inch of help. God so good to my old self and family, I later met with a certified binary options recovery expert that helped me recover my money from the brokers, it was worth it to pay him 20%. You can contact the expert on his Email if you have found yourself in same situation as me, I can assure he would be able to help you just as he helped me, you can give him a try if you don’t mind.
