It’s been a few months now since the Bitconnect Ponzi scheme crumbled (Thats a SCAM!). But contrary to what Carlos Matos would have you believe the world is still the same, and as long as there is money to be made there will continue to be cheats and swindlers looking to take advantage of unsuspecting investors. Is FCOIN a scam? Almost certainly, and we therefore created this 101 breakdown both as a PSA for the crypto community and as an exercise in spotting the red flags which help us identify this project for what it is – fraud. There is no doubt FCOIN gets an F as an investment, but by learning the tells of those trying to swindle us, you can still get an A as an investor.
