Al je crypto's op een Nano ledge plaatsen.
Is dit al voldoende om in dit bovenstaande geval je geld NIET kwijt te geraken ?

Ja en nee denk ik. In dit geval werd een exchange gesloten dus kun je met de tegoeden daar niks. Wie coins opslaat op een Nana Ledger S kan hier wel nog wat mee. BitcConnect heeft zelf ook een cryptocoin BCC en die is door dit nieuws sterk gedaald:

Dus ondanks een Nano Ledger S verlies je toch geld als de betreffende opgeslagen coin wordt geraakt door slecht nieuws of een algehele daling van de 'markt' ;)

Well, the collapse of Bitconnect was kind of expected. The smart investor would always consider various options. Putting all the eggs in one basket is not smart :) As for me, I constantly look through new alternative projects in search of the best ones.

Bitconnect: de droom van oneindige rijkdom

Als het te mooi klinkt om waar te zijn… dan is het dat meestal ook. Duizenden Nederlanders stapten de afgelopen maanden in een nieuwe cryptomunt: Bitconnectcoin. Aan deze munt zit een uitleenplatform vast, met een gemiddeld rendement van maar liefst 1 procent per dag. Een buitenkansje!

Want met de huidige, lage rentes is het extra interessant verder te kijken wat je met (spaar)geld kunt doen. Bij Bitconnect kun je je Bitcoins inwisselen voor Bitconnectcoins. Deze Bitconnectcoins kun je uitlenen aan het platform van Bitconnect. Hoe meer je uitleent, hoe korter het maar vastgezet hoeft te worden. In ruil voor je investering ontvang je dagelijks gemiddeld bijna 1 procent rente.

Dat deze 1 procent rente per dag en het opnieuw investeren van de rente zou leiden dat onvoorstelbare bedragen, daar is niet elke investeerder zich van bewust. Een inleg van slechts 1000 euro zou dan binnen drie jaar kunnen uitgroeien tot een kapitaal van bijna 54 miljoen euro!

Dat zou kunnen omdat Bitconnect gebruik maakt van een trading bot. Een stukje software, dat de koers kan voorspellen. Echter bestaat er geen enkel bewijs van het bestaan van deze trading bot. Wie de bedenkers van Bitconnect en van deze trading bot zijn is onbekend.

De Britse Kamer van Koophandel waarschuwt al eerder voor de beloftes van Bitconnect. De oprichters van cryptomunten Ethereum en Litecoin noemen Bitconnect een piramidespel. In enkele staten in de VS wordt Bitconnect begin januari verboden nog langer leningen te verstrekken.

Piramidespel

Half januari stort Bitconnect ineen en wordt bewaarheid waar al zo lang voor gewaarschuwd is: Bitconnect is een piramidespel. Nieuwe investeerders betalen met hun inleg de oudere investeerders uit.. De website is dagenlang onbereikbaar, zogezegd door een DDos-aanval. Dan verschijnt het bericht dat het uitleenplatform van per direct is gestopt. Mensen krijgen hun investeringen terug, maar uitgekeerd in Bitconnectcoin. Die munt is buiten Bitconnect zelf waardeloos en er blijft in een mum van tijd maar 4 procent van de waarde over.

Wie zit er achter Bitconnect?

Wie er vandoor is met de oorspronkelijke, wel waardevolle, bitcoins, is onbekend. Het is niet duidelijk wie de grote namen zijn achter Bitconnect. Maar voor Bitconnect zijn promoters actief, mensen die een community vol investeerders en positieve berichtgeving opbouwen over Bitconnect. Veel mensen stappen naar aanleiding van hun video’s en berichten in. Niet onverdienstelijk, want voor elke investeerder die direct via de promoters instapt, ontvangen zij 7%. Stappen daaronder ook weer mensen in, ontvangen zij opnieuw een bepaald percentage en van de mensen die daarna instappen ook.

Cryptobroers

Ook in Nederland zijn promoters actief. Onder andere de Cryptobroers uit Limburg. Zij verspreiden video’s, organiseren weekly wingames van Bitconnectcoins voor de mensen die via hen investeren. Ze dulden geen kritisch geluid in hun community. In privé-berichten claimen ze dat zij verantwoordelijk zijn voor het verbeteren van de financiële positie van meer dan 500 mensen. Als het leenplatform van Bitconnect ermee ophoudt, geldt dat ook voor de Cryptobroers. Ze verwijderen ‘Bitconnect’ uit hun naam, video’s en Facebookberichten worden verwijderd en hun LinkedIn-profiel aangepast.

Verklaring van advocaat

Uiteraard neemt Opgelicht?! contact met het tweetal op voor uitleg. Een afspraak wordt afgezegd, de telefoon niet langer opgenomen en we ontvangen een verklaring van hun advocaat. Volgens de Crytpobroers zijn zij, als er sprake is van oplichting, ook slachtoffer. Op basis van de toen beschikbare informatie leek het business model van Bitconnect echter aannemelijk.
Promoter, wat zij volgens eigen papieren sinds 1 oktober officieel waren, zou slechts een naam zijn die zij zichzelf hadden gegeven. Iedereen die informatie heeft verspreid over Bitconnect een zou een promoter zijn. Volgens de Cryptobroers zijn uitglijders zoals Bitconnect inherent aan (cryptocurrency) investeringen.

BCC meets its death after being deregistered from its last exchange

BitConnect’s coin, BCC meets its death after being deregistered from its last exchange in what seems like the epitome of a rough beginning.

Due to a bumpy ride, cryptocurrency exchanges which had listed BCC started withdrawing from the deal. However, the coin remained listed on TradeSatoshi, an exchange desk. But not for long. TradeSatoshi issued a notice last month indicating that it will also follow suit and delist BitConnect’s BCC coin on 10th of this month. Which it did. As reported by the TheNextWeb.

BitConnect wooed investors as a bitcoin investment platform. Suspiciously, the platform promised investors a 1 percent interest on their investment on a daily basis. Exuding such a fishy affair, it prompted prominent figures in the blockchain space like Vitalik Buterin, co-founder, ethereum, and Charlie Lee, Litecoin’s co-founder, to openly indicate that BitConnect is a scam.

This followed a concern from the United States in the state of Texas. Texas Securities Board ruled that BitConnect should stop selling its investment opportunities in the states. Moreover, it gave the platform 30 days to dissolve its operations in the U.S.

In the United Kingdom, BitConnect is registered under three different names, BITCONNECT LTD, BITCONNECT INTERNATIONAL PLC, and BITCOIN AMR LIMITED. Although there are suspicions that neither of this names are real.

Another major blow to BitConnect came last month when the Indian police arrested one of its previous heads while boarding a plane from Dubai to Delhi. His arrest was not due to his involvement with the ‘lending’ platform, he was involved with another cryptocurrency scam that defrauded Indians more than 12 Billion U.S dollars.

BitConnect’s stance in India brought to light how deep the cryptocurrency scams run. Sometimes involving members of the ruling political party. BitConnect was dissolved early this year after swindling unsuspecting crypto investors a fortune.

As BCC meets its death after being deregistered from its last exchange, do you think scams like these are rarely likely to happen in the future as more people learn the hard way?

U.S Asks India to Seize Property of Bitconnect Promoters

The authorities of two U.S. states have asked Indian officials to seize the property of the promoters of Bitconnect. One of which has already been arrested and the investigators are tracking down another who supposedly handled the worldwide operations of the co and may have a big amount of Bitcoin belonging to investors.

The U.S Wants Bitconnect Promoters’ Property Seized

The authorities of the U.S. states of Arizona and Illinois wrote to India’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials in the state of Gujarat, “asking them to seize the property of the promoters of a cryptocurrency investment firm, Bitconnect,” the Times of India reported on Tuesday, September 11.

The promoters are “suspected to have made off with Rs 41,000 crore [~US$5.66 billion] of investors’ money,” the publication noted and quoted a CID official saying:

Authorities of the US states of Illinois and Arizona wrote to us asking us to seize the property of the promoters of Bitconnect, as citizens of these states have invested in the company and lost money.

800% Annual Return Promised

-Satish Kumbhani.

The CID investigators say two Bitconnect promoters, Satish Kumbhani and Divyesh Darji, began their cryptocurrency operations in December 2016, after the country’s demonetization.

Investors transferred their BTC to the firm and “were issued bitconnect coins in return, which they could trade and on which they received interest,” the publication described, elaborating:

[The promoters] lured in thousands of investors by promising 800% returns per year on investments.

-Divyesh Darji.

Divyesh Darji made a commission of ten percent on investments he brought in, the CID official detailed. “He was fluent in English and ran several social welfare programs. He had a big following and Kumbhani hence roped him in,” the news outlet conveyed. “Darji had brought in investments of Rs 4,100 crore [~$569 million] while the total amount invested in Bitconnect could be around Rs 41,000 crore.”

“At the time, one bitconnect coin was worth about $380 and people invested their bitcoins due to the attractive returns promised,” the CID official said. On September 10th, bitcoinnect was delisted from crypto-to-crypto exchange Tradesatoshi, the last exchange that the coin was trading on, TNW reported. According to Coinmarketcap, the last recorded price for the bitconnect coin was approximately $0.69.

One Promoter Arrested, Another Being Tracked Down:

Divyesh Darji was arrested at the Delhi airport on his way back from Dubai, as we previously reported. As for Mr. Kumbhani, a senior CID official explained, “We have begun the process of getting a warrant issued against Kumbhani and will then press for a red-corner notice (RCN) to track him down.” An RCN is issued by Interpol at the request of a member state to urge other member countries to detain or arrest an accused. The official added:
Kumbhani was tracked down to South Korea some time ago, but by the time we could react, he had flown back to Dubai. He supposedly handled the worldwide operations of the company and may have possession of a large amount of money in bitcoins, which belongs to investors.
