Just a dreadfully formulaic hyip. You WILL lose your bitcoin. 25/10/14

A hyip scam, all signs point to russian origins - don't be fooled by the UK Ltd status. 24/10/14

Ahhh, the good old Wix hosting again. The host of choice for the discerning scammer. 23/10/14

It's a scam. Stay clear of this fake mining site 23/10/14

At this time, stay clear as there is no SSL on login, but we think the problems go deeper, ie claims it is french, but site traces to Poland - we're on it. 20/10/14

"double your bitcoin in only 3 days at least" Another wix freehosted scamsite. 20/10/14

It's an old angle, you think you're cheating something, while they just cheat you. It's a robbery, and you are the loser 19/10/14

Don't show them your silly side. If you fancy being reckless, try bungee jumping. It's a scam 19/10/14

These hyips are starting to suffer, we list them and at least they come up on a google search. It's a scam. 17/10/14

This scam is using details from a dormant company. Don't go near it. 16/10/14

Another scam btc multiplier. It will steal all the bitcoin at the time of its choosing. 16/10/14

We've still had no reply from this very dodgy looking site. Your Risk. 16/10/14

A very obvious scam. We've given Sherlock the night off. 15/10/14

This site has no redeeming features. Keep your btc safe. 15/10/14
We are awaiting some dialogue from the host. 22/10/14

Yet another Hyip/Ponzi/Scam Don't let these crooks steal your bitcoin. 16/10/14


Not to be confused with ghash.io. This site is playing on the name to rob you. It's a russian based scam. 15/10/14

Just another Ponzi Scam - Move along, nothing to see here. 14/10/14

If it wasn't setting out to steal your money, it would almost be funny. GCR Coin my arse. We hate this site, it just gives crypto a bad name. 14/10/14

Another golden cows type of Ponzi. Check the ponzi diagram in our tips section. (Russian) 14/10/14

Mlmbit.co.in MLMbitcoinclub
An'MLM' involves product. This is a Ponzi, not an MLM. (Russian) 14/10/14

That's our hyip fix for today. This site should carry a health warning. 14/10/14

and yet another china-miner site pops up. A hardworking bitcoiner is on to these, follow the thread at Bitcointalk 14/10/14

We do warn about pre-order scams in our tips section. You should have listened to good advice. Fancy a game of 'hunt the admin' 14/10/14

Nothing is right about this site. They sell SSL but don't use it on their own logins? Don't take the risk. 11/10/14

A bit about Badbitcoin.org and the aims of this project.

"The Badbitcoin Team" is made up of volunteers worldwide - Including YOU. Collectively we have IT, Network and Business / Finance experience, not to mention interests in Bitcoin, and we were becoming increasingly irritated at the number of newcomers to Bitcoin, whose first experience is one of being robbed. This is not what the Bitcoin Industry is about.
It's easy to misunderstand this new Bitcoin World, and the scammers who set out to exploit your lack of experience, by promising unimaginable wealth, and incredible returns through genius investments. Sadly, if it looks too good to be true - it is.

Check here regularly, read out Tips section, and the Badlist and you will hopefully avoid most of these Bad Schemes, and more readily spot some good ones.

The whole Bitcoin Industry and Community is working towards a secure future for the currency. Advertisers also play their part in the cleanup and professionalisation of this growing Industry. Bitcoin is already worth Billions in Investment, and is growing more each day. One day soon, you will be using Digital Currency like you use Paper money now.
One trusted Advertiser who is doing their best to weed out the bad players is Anonymous Ads. The advert below is from A-Ads Buy your adverts with Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Gambling Sites

The thrill of gambling. We don't really see any point in investigating these sites. If you put in your Btc, then be prepared to lose it.  Don't complain if you lose money knowingly gambling. 'Nuff Said.

Binary Options Trading

It sounds so good doesn't it. It isn't. It's a Scam. You don't buy anything, there are no assets, no stocks, no trades, you simply bet on price changes. But read the small print THE SCHEME DECIDES THE PRICES, so it is a 100% rigged bet - It should be renamed 'Nigerian Coin Toss Scam' These schemes are now appearing on many gambling sites, where they should have been in the first place!

PayPal and Bitcoin / Crypto

PayPal is now looking at ways to accept Bitcoin. We can finally lift our warnings.

Bitcoin is 'Magic Money'

Bitcoin may appear to be Magic, in that it can do a disappearing act, like nothing you've ever experienced, however, It CANNOT Double in a Day, a Week or a Month, or ever, unless you invest it in a worthy genuine succesful Bitcoin Business. The only other way is to gamble it, and that carries it's own risks. If you want some easy advice and quick links to protect you and your Bitcoin or other Crypto's, visit our Tips Section. It may save you from losing your precious Bitcoin to any of the traps that are put out there for you.

What is a Ponzi or HYIP?

A Ponzi is any scheme which pays interest to "Investors" from Bitcoin coming in from new Investors. A HYIP is a Ponzi. All Ponzi/Hyips will fail The later Investors will lose everything when the scheme folds and leaves with the Bitcoin. Some just steal it immediately
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 get back to you.

Do YOU Run a Ponzi ? - Fair Warning is enough. Why not just state it on your frontpage. THIS IS A PONZI and you may lose your investment, in great big bold letters. In our experience, enough people are still willing to risk it, but they can't say they weren't warned, and you will have saved us from petty distractions.

Irony Disclaimer & 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 the content, and consequently we do not directly endorse any advert. Some adverts will even appear in our Badlist. But at least the Bitcoin they spend on ads is coming back into the Bitcoin Industry.
