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.


The Blockchain and Bitcoin will revolutionise many aspects of our future. If you know anybody who is ripping the piss out of you, for supporting this technology, send them the following link which is a better 'shut up' than we could ever write. It will leave them in awe of your foresight.  http://goo.gl/hxdLQl This is an incredible article written in June 2014 in The Telegraph.

The Importance of SSL https

We contact and list sites that we come across who do not deploy encryption on user login or registration pages. No https means that Vlad the hacker can read your login as you type it.
Look for the https in your address bar, and if it isn't secure, just don't log in. It is the duty of websites to protect your details. No SSL is negligent if you have work or money in those sites.

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 and Credit/Debit Cards are causing major issues with some Bitcoin operations. The ability to reverse a payment is leaving people thousands of dollars out of pocket.

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.
