After taking a week off to visit Charlie Shrem, and having a block size showdown with Roger Ver, Chris DeRose and Junseth are back to their regular schedule on Bitcoin Uncensored. Episode 49 is a big one, covering a wide range of topics in the hosts’ unique and uncensored fashion. However, before jumping into the news, the guys wanted to know what Bitcoin icon MK Lords thinks about the show.
Bitcoin Uncensored 49: “Faith in Guh-neesis”
Apparently, she’s “undecided.” We’ll let you decide whether that’s good or bad for Chris and Junseth.
First on the list for episode 49 is OneCoin. Most of the cryptocurrency knows about this scam by now, but there are still a lot of people falling for the ponzi hype. Recently, the OneCoin team released an announcement about the launch of its new blockchain, which coincides with a doubling of user funds.
Needless to say, Chris and Junseth are pretty amused.
From the way Dr. Ruja (who the guys believe isn’t really at the top of the pyramid) pronounces “genesis block,” to the outlandish wardrobe of the “skullcandy cane guy,” the Uncensored guys have chalked up the operation to one big joke.
Since its inception, people have held skepticism for OneCoin, given its promises of massive profit and the cult-like support it has from users. Several government agencies around the world have warned their citizens against participating in the project.
The most damning evidence against OneCoin came from a Bitcoin.com interview with ezCoinAccess owner Tim Tayshun, titled “Buyer Beware! The Definitive OneCoin Ponze Exposé.” That article has received a crazy amount of views, and has amassed close to a thousand comments from both skeptics and supporters.
Sooner or later, we’ll figure out the real truth behind OneCoin, legit or not (it’s probably a scam). Until then, we can have a laugh while Chris and Junseth point out the hilarity behind the whole thing.
