GSPartners’ G999 an off the shelf scamcoin script?
GSPartners’ G999 appears to be an off the shelf purchased shitcoin script.
One that’s been used to launch at least two scamcoins.
On the G999 website it is represented the cryptocurrency was developed in 2018.
2018 first quarter – composing blockchain team
2018 second quarter – analysing blockchain opportunities, requirements, compatibility
2018 third quarter – setting up the project and roughly line up the ecosystem
2018 fourth quarter – started to develop the blockchain under proof of stake algorithm
In the footer of G999’s website there is a community links section. There a link to “BitBucket” takes you to G999’s blockchain source package.
The default file opened is the readme. It contains general information about G999’s source package.
Nothing remarkable. With a bit of directory traversal we can see the package was uploaded in November 2018, which syncs with what G999 claims on its website.
What I want to direct your attention to though is the “Need Help?” section in the readme file. Specifically the “BitcoinTalk” link.
That link points to the BitcoinTalk forum thread for SafeInsure Coin (SINS).
SINS was launched in September 2018. At least as far as I know, it has nothing to do with GSPartners or G999.
As to what SINS is, it was your typical pump and dump shitcoin scheme.
Having run its course, SafeInsure Coin was abandoned on or around April 2020. SINS’ blockchain stopped working altogether in early 2021.
Preceding SINS being abandoned was the launch of SafeCapital (SCAP) in December 2019.
SCAP was of course another pump and dump shitcoin:
The owners of SINS simply double down and launched a new shitcoin, targeting the same victims.
SCAP was abandoned on or around July 2020.
Getting back to G999, the reason there’s a BitcoinTalk forum link to SINS in the G999 readme is because all they did was change the scamcoin name.
Here’s G999’s readme:
See if you can spot the difference between the SINS and SCAP readme files:
Update 16th July 2021 – Shortly after this article was published, GSBank deleted the referenced G999 source readme file.
The above screenshot is a record of the file, accessed at the time of publication.
I did have a link to the file but seeing as its been deleted I’ve replaced the original link to a record of the file’s deletion.
It’s not as neat as the original file display but you can still reference the similarities. /end update
Update 24th July 2021 – GSBank has deleted the commit entry. This appears to be an attempt to remove evidence G999 is a clone of the SINS and SCAP scamcoins.
As a result of GSBank deleting the commit evidence I’ve had to remove the “GSPartners” link above. /end update
Another example of copy and paste can be found further scrolling down G999’s readme to “Development”.
There you’ll find a broken link to SINS’ “root readme” file.
As to who GSPartners’ bought their G999 shitcoin script from, no idea. Given the collapse of SINS and SCAP, they’re probably long gone.
GSPartners’ G999 BitBucket code project hasn’t been updated since October 2020.
What we do know is G999 wasn’t developed by a “blockchain team”, as represented by GSPartners.
They just bought a script, entered their project name and executed it.
Like SINS and SCAP, G999 pumped and then promptly dumped.
Unlike SINS and SCAP, there’s an MLM comp plan on the backend still generating money for GSPartners’ owner Josip Heit.
