OneCoin USA launch a total flop (nothing happened)
For an event that has been hyped to no end over the past month or so, the delayed launch of OneCoin into the US heralded much of nothing.
There was no live event or official OneCoin corporate presence in the US, with the event instead held via webinar.
A somewhat bored-sounding gentlemen opened the call, with a couple of hundred OneCoin investors listening in.
Despite OneCoin claiming to have over 400,000 affiliates, only four hundred or so (0.001%) rocked up to the “historic event”.
After blabbing on for a few minutes about how momentous launching in the US was, the host kicked it over to OneCoin’s founder, Ruja Ignatova.
Now you’ve got to feel for the OneCoin affiliates who bothered to turn on the call. I don’t know whether Ignatova thinks all of her investors are morons, or what the deal is – but other than briefly mention the promotional need for OneCoin to appear to be operational in the US, this might as well have just been a pitch to prospective OneCoin affiliates.
For thirty-five minutes, Ignatova proceeded to give listeners an extremely basic introduction to cryptocurrencies, a history of OneCoin itself and how Ignatova claims to have started the company.
I’d have thought OneCoin investors would have a basic understanding of the cryptocurrency concept before signing up as a OneCoin affiliate, but evidently not.
What struck me in particular was that nothing was really announced on the call, at least not specifically towards a US launch. There was no disclosure of registration with the SEC (OneCoin almost certainly offer their affiliates securities), nor was there talk of OneCoin creating a physical presence on US soil.
If any OneCoin investors had hoped to be reassured they weren’t just investing in a shady European-based Ponzi calculatedly being operated offshore, that certainly didn’t happen.
Towards the end of the call there was talk of affiliates organizing recruitment meetings in several US states, but nothing concrete.
A convention in Las Vegas was also briefly mentioned, along with talk of OneCoin investors from around the world attending, but again that came off as more of a pipe dream at this stage.
Despite the “historic” launch of OneCoin in the US, it’s still ultimately a European-based opportunity operating in the US with little to no logistical support.
Ignatova and the gang aren’t registered with the SEC and those pushing OneCoin, by virtue of their own passive investment in the scheme, have got to know by now that this is a problem.
I mean what happened to Ignatova bringing OneCoin into the US “through the front door” and all above-board?
Feel free to fill me in on what exactly changed within OneCoin over the past twenty-four hours via a comment below.
Otherwise, I’m at a complete loss as to why a OneCoin US launch webinar needed to be held at all (and I can’t be the only one…).
There it is. Suggesting that One coin will register an offering in the US suggests legitimacy, but its only part of the promotion and while it may sucker a few more Bulgarian’s into the scheme, its an an empty promise.
Anyone inclined to invest in or promote this company in the US does so at their own peril.
what! i thought rujamama would flap around the US in some ‘designer’ disaster dress.
if not the SEC/FBI/DOJ we could have at least hoped for an arrest by the fashion police! drat.
I checked into & signed up with OneCoin, I quickly realized they have samilar poor qualities to Ufun.
Their site has credit card option but its blank. Credit card companies will never go for this schemee currency.
When people use irrational hype over vetting & evidence, a clear sign of how fast i need to run from OC.
I caught ponzi pimps promoting onecoin on fb in a chat and sent them post and clips and supporting evidence of onecoin scam and was removed from the conversation.
Why am I not surprised???… Some people will just never learn.
Usa recruiting speed= less 1/state/day
GO GO US!!

Correctly it should read: Pehr Karlsson or Pehr Carlsson. He was also announced as “Carlsson” at a scam event in Dubai:
Another topic on Sebastian Greenwood asks who “CC-2” could be. Is it possible that Pehr Karlsson is meant?
In this video, too, Pehr Karlsson can be seen briefly next to Ruja Ignatova several times.
Does anyone want to buy the old scam portal onecoin-usa.com? It only costs $ 2,795.
It is interesting that the YouTube channel OneCoin-USA.com still exists. Here is a video from May 2015, when OneCoin announced that it would start in the USA:
All videos of the American dream dancers:
I don’t remember which event it was (Thailand or China) that Pehr Karlsson appeared on stage with her. In fact he escorted her onto the stage.
I can’t find the video link I had of this event. Many of the former videos are now deleted or have been set to private and cannot be viewed. But I think the video of him being on stage with Ruja still works, that is if I can find it.

In May 2015 Pehr Karlsson stood next to Ruja on stage in Dubai and spoke a few words.
Ruja Ignatova likes to brag about her “Business Woman of the Year 2014” award. Even then, Pehr Karlsson was her companion:
But her German husband Björn Strehl was also present:
Interesting that she wasn’t surprised at receiving the award. Now you don’t suppose that she “bought” the award do you?
Silly me, she would never do anything like that especially after being on the cover of Forbes and her interview by them. Wait…..never mind.
