I do microtasks in my spare time, there used to be lots of scam jobs posted like “write a fake review for this baldness cream” and MLM type bs. It’s almost entirely switched over to cryptocurrency related scams.

  1. Yep, this is shit we deal with on a daily basis.

    Ways people try to avoid being detected:

    – Avoiding commenting
    – Purchasing Reddit accounts that “look reputable” to comment
    – Staggering commenting on threads to make it look like the commenters are “genuine”
    – Commenting nothing but sockpuppet comments. Here are a few of the examples of this. If you see a post that says:

    – *Wow!!! Great project update!!! Moon*
    – *Very dedicated project update. Love this team !*
    – *Nice project!!*

    People like to astroturf reddit. If you see this shit, report it.

  2. I use UpWork to get freelance gigs. It’s astonishing how many crypto-related jobs are being posted at the moment. Everyone wants to find a $5ph freelancer to “create an ICO page”. It’s certainly made me far more vigilant when looking to invest but saddens me that this is the state of the blockchain world at the moment.

  3. This is true, I work on Fiverr and most days I get some scamcoin team make overtures to me. Given the location of some of these people and the amount of money they’re throwing around, I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t their first time at the rodeo – but the thing is, their websites etc. are so amateur that you have to wonder about anyone who would even fall for it.

    This all started happening in November, just before the bullrun took hold. Since then, wow. Never mind the normie meme…

  4. this is news to people? it’s obvious this stuff goes on. look at the upvotes / comments on the most popular Waltonchain twitter thread in this sub. 9k up votes, 1700 comments.

    now take a look at the most popular bitconnect scam thread – 1.4k up votes and only 600 comments.

    the difference in participation between these two events is fucking crazy. made for a nice dip to buy more wtc though.
