The Badbitcoin Project
Exposing bitcoin and cryptocurrency frauds since Feb 2014

scammers who are just out there to take it from you.
If you have lost bitcoin to a thief, then you will understand what this project is trying to achieve.
We want everybody's bitcoin experience to be a good one, and we want to see bitcoin help to pave the way toward a society that can be fairer.

This project is 100% dedicated to Cryptocurrency. All our revenue and spend is now sourced entirely within this Industry, and we aren't just about Bitcoin,
we cover all the main Coins. Bitcoin (BTC or XBT), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH) etc. We no longer investigate faucets as these would need their own site.

Tip of the Week
Some stuff that Bitcoin can and cannot do
Bitcoin is a very clever invention, and is the evolution of money, a global decentralised experiment, that separates the "money supply" from the State,
and if you are new to it, it may be quite baffling. Don't worry, you'll soon understand it - Leave the maths to others
- Bitcoin can only be 'mined' using costly specialised equipment. The process is called SHA256 Mining, and the work is done on ASIC Chips. These are especially created for
this task, and to mine on lesser equipment is pointless.
- Bitcoin cannot be generated in any other way. It can only be produced by mining.
- Bitcoin cannot Multiply - any site offering to multiply your bitcoin is just a liar and crook.
- Bitcoin can make interest and generate returns if invested wisely. You can find a few safe places in our Safelist.
- Bitcoin can be gambled in many online casino's and games.
- Bitcoin cannot be hacked. There is no flaw in the blockchain and there are no exploits.
- Bitcoin cannot be 'Double Spent' the first TX (Transaction) to be confirmed by the blockchain is the only one that will be written to the blockchain.
- Bitcoin cannot be retrieved by the sender. Once sent, you have relinquished ownership, and passed on that ownership. If you want it back, the recipient has to instigate that transaction.
- Bitcoin cannot ever truly leave the blockchain, and it cannot actually move - you basically change ownership of it.
- Bitcoin can replace our existing fiat paper money. If we are going to use digital money, let's use one that is not controlled by any despot or incompetent
Government. One that cannot be counterfeited, or printed and devalued to the point of worthlessness
- Bitcoin can change your outlook on life.

What is a Ponzi or HYIP?
Ponzi is any scheme which pays interest to "Investors" from Bitcoin coming in from new Investors. A
HYIP (high yield investment program) is just a Ponzi. All Ponzi/Hyips will fail. The later Investors will lose everything when the scheme folds and leaves with the Bitcoin.
Most HYIPS and doublers etc, just steal it immediately. You send it and they keep it.
Due diligence is your own responsibility.
There are plenty of good sites out there where your Bitcoin and your work are safe. You just need to do your homework, including checking here. If it isn't in our Badlist, email us, and we'll
check it and get back to you.
psychology behind the typical ponzi’s & HYIP's run by the
“professional” scammers. They know most people will do this.
You deposit a small amount, you want to be cautious, you can’t quite
figure out how they do this – but they sometimes double it (or pay promised
interest) and pay you.
You think – Ah that’s great, so you either redeposit the entire
amount, or just your profit. You get that back and think wow, it
works, so then you deposit a much larger amount and in the worst case, even get your friends
and family involved in this wonderful money making scheme.
Then one day, after not long it just doesn’t get returned – there is some issue with your
account, or your withdrawal is stuck or something similar, so you
keep emailing the site and gradually it dawns on you that you’ve
been scammed. Commonly the scammer will even show you the transaction, but it just isn't real.
Even if you just put your initial profits back in, the conman hasn’t
lost anything – and the depositors who think they are ‘playing’ the
ponzi, by getting in early, do try that, and most of them don’t get it back either.
People who run Ponzi's are thieves.
Some people empty their life savings into these scams,
and they are the ones the scammers are really after. Once they get
that big depositor, they move on and create a new ponzi, just
leaving the old one alive for a while to mop up any new ‘mugs’ Some
even return after a 3 or 6 month absence to catch a fresh load of
hits, they will never run out of victims. It’s what they do, and they
are expert at it.
Here's a very common scam.
'Whatever can go wrong - Will go wrong' - Murphy
You will no doubt come across negative comments about this project, but understand that this is the scammers only route to fight back, and a great
many of these scammers are the same people who are Senior, and Gold members of forums.
Forums relating to bitcoin are the best source of conflicting information ever, which is why we keep it plain and simple, we tell you it's a badsite
(albeit sarcastically - we have to stay sane) and that's really all you need to know to stay safe.
When we started this project, we didn't expect that it would still be needed years later, but the interest in bitcoin is driving every web fraudster
to try their hand after bitcoin.
The bitcoin Industry on the whole is clean, these fraudsters generally do not come from the inside, but often from the world of fiat,
and a great many from developing countries and Eastern Europe.
It can be really easy to misunderstand the bitcoin environment when it's all new to you, and it will take you some time to grasp some of the rules, concepts, and limitations. This leaves you vulnerable to the swathes of
scams and ponzis that try to lure you into their promises of easy money, and doubling or even 100 times multiplying your new 'Magic Internet Money'
It doesn't work like that. It isn't magic, it's just very efficient, very secure, and much sought after by thieves the world over.
If you have bitcoin, you need to learn to look after it, or these crooks will soon take it from you.
Don't make it easy for them. Contribute by reporting suspect sites to us when you find them, and we'll do the rest.
Declaration of Interests.
We currently have project investments in Bitcoin Mining at ViaBTC, and we also mine ourselves. We would not invest
in anything we considered to be a Ponzi or Scam. As a project, we
are not directly funded by any organisation and depend on ad
revenue, our own, and other donations, and our external investments. We also provide links including referral
links to trusted 3rd party sites, not including External Advertisers
beyond our control. Updated April 2017
PS - As a friendly tip, we probably aren't the people to generally ask about
good bitcoin investments. We are pretty good at what we do, but so
far, like yourselves no doubt, we aren't really that succesful when
it comes to our own investments.

Irony disclaimer, and Caution
The high costs of running this site are helped by adverts. We also
have to advertise in the same places as the scamsites. We have
little control over this externally served content, and consequently we do not directly
endorse any 3rd Party advert. Some adverts will even appear in our
Badlist. But at least the Bitcoin they spend on ads is coming back into the
Footnote. The evolution of society beyond the demise of the failed
capitalist neo-liberal (Neo-con) experiment, first needs the evolution of it's
means of trade and exchange. The current financial system, and system of fiat
currency, is not fit for present or future purpose, and for all intents and purposes
is already obsolete. Bitcoin is our first financial step towards a
fairer, more beneficial society for all. An experiment that separates Money from The State.
Bitcoin is incorruptible,
decentralised, concensus led, and above the influence of conventional politics
and economics. A parallel currency with which you can begin to
trade, and no middleman to take their slice or to gamble with your
asset. When you deposit money to a Bank, it becomes the Banks
property to do with what they choose, bitcoin is different, and you
are your own Bank. It is up to you to take care of your bitcoin, and
also to use it, not hoard it, and to be an important part of helping
to build this fair and open global society. Bitcoin is worth what
somebody is prepared to exchange it for, be that USD, Yuan,
PC-hardware, Webhosting or anything that 'money' might buy. You can
even get a bitcoin Debit Card. However, the bitcoin Blockchain, and
it's potential is a much much bigger subject.
