Organizers of shady crypto-currency projects make less and less efforts to raised funds. But it seems like investors are going to invest in everthing, that claims to be related with cryptocurrency and / or blockchain.
One of the most egregious examples of this kind can serve as the history of the Miroskii project, which collected almost one million US dollars thru the ICO. This is reported by The Next Web.
On the site Miroskii as a photo of the leading designer uses the image of Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling. In the project it is presented under the name of Kevin Belanger.
As you might guess, the photos of the other participants of the project were also taken from the Internet. Although there were no celebrities among them, all these people have nothing to do with the sphere of blockchain, and the names under their photos are fictitious.
If some investors did not think this was enough to abandon the questionable offer, Miroskii prepared for them and other "symptoms". Thus, a project that promises to develop its own decentralized bank with the support of providers of debit and credit cards, such as Visa, Mastercard and American Express, has not yet published its white paper. The decision on the prospects for investing in Miroskii is proposed to be based on the information provided in the roadmap.
The original English text contains a lot of typos, but the most surprising part of this story is that Miroskii managed to successfully conduct the ICO, collecting more than $ 830,000.
In addition to all, in all social networks where Miroskii is represented, and this is Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, in total there were 7 subscribers, so it is not clear to whom exactly who these investors who donated pseudo-Gosling and companies to almost a million US dollars.
Perhaps the information provided by Miroskii on the results of the ICO, like the rest of the information on the site, is untrue, but the project did conduct a small PR campaign, so it is not worth excluding the possibility that they could collect the named amount.
