Laura and Jef, two people who promoted cryptocurrency toneel Bitconnect ter Twente, are receiving death threats since the verhoging collapsed, Laura said on Quote’s webstek.
The toneelpodium collapsed after six Americans went to court ter December, attempting into get their investment te Bitconnect back, according to newspaper AD. The court te Kentucky eventually froze Bitconnect’s assets, and the financial regulator te the states of Texas and North Caroline banned the toneelpodium. Since then, everyone who shoved money into Bitconnect Coin (BCC) witnessed their investment plummet ter value by around 95 procent.
She too is a victim, Laura said. At one point she had overheen 160 thousand dollars on hier Bitconnect account. She also insisted that she wasgoed not a Bitconnect promoter, despite pictures of hier with various football players being featured on Bitconnect’s social media and a movie of hier seemingly advertising the toneelpodium. “Wij have a community of Bitconnect and wij wished to inform people about how you could begin. That is what I did: I explained on movie how it worked. But I wasgoed not a promoter”, she said on Quote.
Bitconnect is an online loan toneel, according to AD. The participants loan the podium money, which would be used to develop and maintain a wise software program that speculates ter bitcoins. Bitconnect assured an rente rate of 1 procent vanaf day based on this software. But whether this software actually exists, is unclear, according to the newspaper.
“One procent rente vanaf day on your investment, it sounded too good to be true. After 199 days I would’ve bot able to take the very first rente and then 100 euros every day. But three weeks after I waterput te 1,000 euros, there wasgoed less than 100 euros left. Virtually. Because I can not withdraw that 100 euros”, one Bitconnect investor, who asked to remain anonymous, said to AD. He wasgoed told about Bitconnect by Jef, who lives with Laura. “I wasgoed a bit afraid to miss the boat. With other successes on the stock market, such spil those very first investors te internet companies, I wasgoed always too late. Now I dreamed to be there on time.”
“I hear that they are being threatened now that things have gone wrong, but I do not know if I should be angry with Jef”, he said. “Maybe he did not know exactly how it wasgoed, and I determined to participate myself. What I do not find fair is that he said there wasgoed a collaboration inbetween Bitconnect and Visa. That is a name that inspires confidence, and that turned out not to be the case afterwards. My mother dreamed to sell jewelry to participate too. I’m glad she didn’t.”
Bitconnect’s webstek is still online. “Dear community members, the current BCC price druppel is the meteen result of us releasing all of our members coins at one time. Wij will do our best to honor the value of BCC spil close to what it has bot holding during the past several months”, the Bitconnect team says te a geschreven statement on the webpagina.
