scammer alert!! 666 - @fake.toshi - selling fake BTC coins !!!111
I remembered that a couple of months ago (early february) during their pre-launch phase I tested the platform and out of fun I also created a token. I was running out of inspiration and/or thought it was fun so I created the steem account @fake.toshi using the SteemWallet.app which became the single owner of all the "BTC - coin" I "minted" on the Steem-Engine platform. I had issued exactly the same amount of tokens being in circulation as Bitcoin. Yes all for fun, but I should have known better...
Once the DEX Market became live on the Steem-Engine site @fake.toshi tested this feature by putting up 1 BTC coin for sale, more or less at the same amount of Steem / BTC, (for 8888 STEEM).
@aggroed announced 5 days ago the launch of true BTC/LTC/ETH pegged coins on the Steem-Engine, where a custodian gateway holds the BTC / LTC / ETH (epic work by @someguy123!). Because now the BTCP initiative is launched on Steem-Engine which is a truly IOU based coin, giving you the "right" to claim BTCP : BTC on 1:1 ratio, I especially understand that me having a token called "BTC" listed for sale on the DEX is very confusing.
I found out that the token I made is actually removed from the Steem-Engine UI by now, so that's great. However actually some people had bought some of the BTC Coin. Nice, but not so nice :)
@aggroed had contacted me on Discord (not an avid Discord user as some of you know :P) - asking me about the BTC coin token: "I keep getting complaints that people have purchased teh btc you listed thinking it was actually representing btc in part because you point back to bitcoin.org. Folks are wondering if you will refund their purchases. Do you have a response to this?"
So my response was:
see my response in #token-creation (on the Steem-engine discord), but the tldr is I understand that it is confusing, especially since BTCP is now running which is truly pegged / IOU. So I understand the removal and such. Never had the intention to scam of people or smth. Just created the token when the rumours where going about SE (SteemEngine). And thought it was fun / i ran out of inspiration I guess :smiley:
anyhow it's good that it's delisted. For future delists, might be nice to contact / response prior to delisting.
- If you know of a way how I can easily see how much STEEMP everyone spend, I'm happy to instantly return all the steemp to the appropriate owners
- If you know of a way how i can update the token (now that it's delisted) to make it more reflective of being a test, I'm also all ears !
Ok, cleaning up this (little) messIn the meantime I found out who is holding the BTC coin I issued, (in total about 180 SteemP had been sold afaik) - https://bloks.xyz/token/BTC . However the holders part is incomplete afaik. It's great that the BTC coin is no longer accessible through the Steem-Engine UI, so if all holders can send me the transactions of them buying the BTC coin with STEEMP, I'm happy to refund.
I think the following people, according to https://bloks.xyz/token/BTC have the token:
- and 2/3 others own some of the BTC coin (not revealed by the Bloks.xyz site - @wehmoen know why?).
Know Steem-Engine Smart Contracts? Please help me?If you are experienced with the Steem-Engine Smart Contracts I can need some help as the User Interface is no longer working for the token:
- If you know an easy way to display all token holders of the BTC Coin including to retrieve their transactions of purchase?
- As the token is delisted I would really like to: remove the token, from the platform (deactivate, if possible) and remove any outstanding BTC on the DEX from the DEX.
- Then I would like to mint all the not yet minted tokens (to the "max supply of 21 million) and send all the tokens to @null.
If you know how I can easily achieve this, please let me know.
Dear BTC Coin buyers: Sorry for any confusing I introduced in the Steem-Engine system. Please accept my apologies.
found a way to retrieve the tx's related to the BTC coin using https://wallet.bloks.xyz by @wehmoen. Then putting those transaction ids' in
steemengine python package by @holger80 to retrieve the details. (Holger is now also writing a fully automated script afaik). I'm now refunding all those involved using Steem Keychain's "token send" feature (as I have some trouble importing/using @fake.toshi into Beem). Here is the overview of sends to be happening on fake.toshi account:
