The Centauri (CTX) was a coin that was not publicly tradable at the time, and was particularly popular in German-speaking countries. It was originally the child of another potential snowball system. A Singapore based company called Global Dynamic claimed to make big profits by trading. Anyone who invested at least 1,000 US dollars could participate. In May 2016, Global Dynamic changed not only the company name and headquarters but also the payment system: instead of direct transfer to the bank account, the members of the company, now operating under the name “Alpha-Centauri”, received a crypto currency, the Centauri. This was then transferred by means of an exchanger (with substantial fees) in euro to the own bank account. Stupidly only that the Exchanger was closed after short time and the members remained sitting on their not listed crypto currency.
Nevertheless a large network with over 1,000 acceptance places for the Coin developed. When its most prominent sponsor, Michael Sander, announced in 2017 that he would be devoting himself to other projects from then on, this looked like the deathblow for the digital currency and the members’ investment. The best-known face behind the coin, on the other hand, should be happy today about the juicy profits made at that time.
The cryptosoft coin survives
What happened then, however, distinguishes the cryptosoft coin from other potential scams: The injured parties formed a group that gave the cryptosoft coin a new coat of paint as of February 2018. From the quite large community there were programmers who updated the blockchain – luckily the coin really had one – and brought it up to the current state of the litecoin.
They designed a new desktop and a paper wallet and put the private keys into the hands of the owners. Since November, the Centauri Coin has also been tradable on a stock exchange. The active members founded an association called D.I.F. by organising themselves today and working to revive the once large network of points of acceptance. So far they have kept the promises of their roadmap – this is rare even among established digital currencies.
Does the power that always “wants evil and yet creates the good” work here – freely according to Goethe?
Possibly. Because when a coin that was possibly planned from above as a scam becomes a real community project, this is quite remarkable. Of course, it remains to be seen in which direction the Centauri Coin will develop.
Current potential crypto trader candidates: Bitclub Network and BitcoinProfit
A current, still running example is the Bitclub Network. Here the crypto trader profits are allegedly achieved through mining. It has been proven that there is also crypto trader mining at the Bitclub, but it is questionable whether the coins created are sufficient to pay the claims of the members. Of course, caution is required here not to simply label the network as a pyramid selling system. But the distribution by a structure selling in combination with a certain intransparency do their remaining, in order to let caution prevail here.
The case of BitcoinProfit should be much clearer. An investment of at least 250 euros should allow thousands of euros to be earned here. In order to underpin this, even completely openly false reports are spread. Thus allegedly G?nther Jauch or Wolfgang Lippert are to have themselves on the television verplappert. Supposedly you would have divulged the secret of their fortune there: A system called BitcoinProfit. One looks for recordings of these transmissions in vain, because they never took place. But of course, with this system you can earn a huge fortune within a very short time with only a small investment… the same old story.
