I am posting evidence here as there is massive marketing campaign for the scam ICO and needs to be stopped before any more lose funds and im sure there will be backlash from those promoting the scam when i comment on the posts.
I was recently contacted by a user who i had banned from my Discord Server due to suspecting the group he was helping to run of being disingenuous setting up users to auto-vote on false promises also taking votes to promote ICO referral promotions and illegitimate ICO's he was asking to be allowed back in and that they had secured 665 ETH investment for some "great investment" they have planned linking me their recent youtube video detailing
This brought to my attention this article promoting an ICO called Viuly I thought immediately oh I've heard of this and think its a great idea and that @furion was one of the devs working on but when i went to the site alarm bells started ringing.
I proceeded to check out the whitepaper which was nothing more than an advertising pamphlet most of which talked about the marketing of the ICO sale and bounty program with no mention of technical aspects or any sort of future except for a joke of a road map.
Viuly also claims to have $150k funding from Blockchain investment group Krypton Capital which doesn't exist bar the website krypton.capital and the addressgiven are for business centers with no listings for the company.
I think this was given so investors would stumble upon UK based investment firm of the same name
I checked out some of the team they had listed and was suspicious of one in particular who was a real person working in blockchain space Karthik Iyer founder and CEO of BlockchainMonk so i contacted on twitter.
they have since changed their site and removed listing of Karthik Iyer

Its evident from the information provided that Viuly is the scam ICO and have spent a lot of money trying to push promotions to get some investors who might think they are investing in Viewly which im sure will do well regardless of this scam.
Using the information gathered i will do my best to spread the word so that no more duped into investing they already have received 77 ETH if their site is too be believed this is crazy and should be put an end to.
