Fraudsters continue to rely on people’s lack of knowledge about Bitcoin to separate people from their hard-earned money.
The website claims to be a group reserved exclusively to people who jumped at the insane returns that Bitcoin offers and have quietly amassed a fortune in doing so.
However, it is safe to say to from all indications that the Btcisfuture.com website is a scam since it takes up the same format as other schemes that many unsuspecting victims lost money in the past.
The Bitcoin Future (BtcisFuture.com) Red Flags
Although there are several red flags indicating that Btcisfuture.com is fraudulent, here are the most apparent ones.
The website at the time of writing features a short clip highlighting prominent positive comments about Bitcoin made by Bill Gates, Chamath Palihapitiya, and other notable influencers.
The less than 1-minute video portrays Bitcoin as a big money-making tool with nothing said about the highly volatile nature of the asset. It also suggests that Bitcoin has made the persons in the video to become rich when we know that it is very far from the truth.
As is usually the case with most Bitcoin-related scams, the persons behind the Bitcoin Future website devised a means to make people feel like they’re going to miss out on something important by not signing up.
The message is that “Due to extremely high media demand,” the site will close registration in a few minutes on the day a visitor arrives on the website. Till date, though, the website has never closed registration.
While any professional cryptocurrency trader will readily tell you that their occupation involves high risk, the Btcfuture.com website claims to have built software or app “that performs at the 99.4% level of accuracy.”
The supposed software is proficient enough to yield a minimum of $1,731.11 daily for investors, while they only have to work for 20 minutes per day.
To create even more curiosity, the website says that some members have made a million in just 61 days, an ROI that does not only sound too good to be true but is clearly IMPOSSIBLE with Bitcoin’s price fluctuations.
The Btcfuture.com website also features fake testimonies from people who do not exist, claiming to have gained massive returns from investing with the platform. This is apparently another effort to get you to part with your hard-earned money.
Conclusively, although the website claims to be based in the U.S, it highest visitors according to Alexa is from Hong Kong, while the currency valuation on the homepage changes to suit the location of a visitor.
The Contact Us page only reveals an email form to contact the persons behind it and not a physical address or location for the scammers.
