Other Nations and MLM Publications Warning About OneCoin Activities

OneCoinThe London Police are not the only officials warning about the digital currency. Scam advisories against OneCoin have been spread in areas like Germany and Belgium. People continue to warn users against the digital currency online.

Dr. Ruja Promises to Double Assets Come October 1st

OneCoinAll of this comes at a time when the central leader of OneCoin, Dr. Ruja Ignatova, has promised investors that she will double their coins come October 1st.

Ignatova says that “Ultimate and Tycoon” investors who hold affiliate “packages” will be rewarded when she changes the “blockchain.” The company claims that everyone who owns the digital currency will double their investment because of this implementation.

The company has made promises like these before claiming in the past that many merchants had made preparations to accept OneCoin as payment. However, these stories have never seemed to materialize for the organization. Currently, in the legitimate cryptocurrency world, not one single exchange accepts the currency. The digital currency is also not listed on reputable market capitalization sites such as and others.

Many people believe this fraudulent operation is about to explode in the coming months. Some have speculated that October 1st will be the first sign of the Ponzi cracking at the seams. When things go terribly wrong for those who invested in this operation the leaders may dip out of the limelight. As more and more law enforcement officials aim their sights on the crypto-MLM project it becomes pretty apparent OneCoin is a corrupt non-existent cryptocurrency.
