The OneCoin Ponzi wall of shame
In the wake of US authorities bringing OneCoin’s criminal enterprise crashing down, no doubt there are a lot of people out there trying to bury their association.
Since our initial review of OneCoin on September 23rd, 2014, in which we accurately analyzed and concluded OneCoin was a Ponzi scheme, BehindMLM has published no less than two hundred and fifty-seven articles documenting every twist and turn.
Throughout that journey we came across a colorful cast of characters, most of whom have since moved on from OneCoin. Others simply disappeared off the face of the planet.
According to the DOJ, OneCoin was a Ponzi scheme that bilked investors out of upwards of $4 billion dollars.
Unless you’ve been closely following OneCoin, a perfectly natural response to such a dwarfing figure is, “How the hell did this happen?”
Based on my own research into OneCoin, interactions and perspective over the past four and a half years, I present to you the people who made it possible.
By her own admission, Ruja Ignatova has done “many bad things in her life, many stupid things”.
Anything Ignatova might have done prior to 2014 however, was no doubt dwarfed by the launch of OneCoin.
Ruja Ignatova was central in the planning and execution of the OneCoin Ponzi scheme.
By 2017 Ignatova was feeling the heat and around the middle of the year, simply disappeared.
US authorities would later reveal Ignatova boarded a flight for Greece in October 2017, never to be heard from again.
Through OneCoin, Ignatova is believed to have enriched herself and her family to the tune of hundreds of million of dollars. Upper estimates pending forensic confirmation might even peg Ignatova’s stash at over a billion.
While we have no idea where Ignatova’s stash is hidden, we can attribute some of it to a Bulgarian property empire, an aborted mansion by the sea and crapload of cosmetic surgery.
For the record we have nothing against cosmetic surgery. But spare a thought for the OneCoin investors whose funds went into that face.
Ignatova’s current status is unknown. She remains a fugitive on the run and wanted by US authorities.
Outside of financial fraud, Ignatova is fondly remembered for her choice of outlandish and often voluptuous frocks.
You know that sibling parents always make an older sibling include in their activities?
Now a proven criminal in his own right, Konstantin otherwise worked behind the scenes.
Officially Konstantin was OneCoin’s Head of Administration, later promoted to Supreme Leader… or whatever it is OneCoin was calling its top dog after the failed Arens and Munoz experiments.
In all honesty though management wise Konstantin was shafted. Ruja rode out the golden years and left Konstantin a heap of decomposing scraps.
After travelling around the world for two years making awkward appearances at OneCoin events, Konstantin evidently realized it was time to chase big bucks in the US.
We can only assume Konstantin missed the last time OneCoin ventured into the US, on account of his being too busy taking topless selfies at the local gym.
As part of his plans to re-establish OneCoin in the US, Konstantin organized a promotional event in Las Vegas last week.
After lying to US Border and Customers Protection, Konstantin entered the US and attended scheduled events in Las Vegas.
As Konstantin prepared to leave the US for his native Bulgaria however, he was arrested and is now facing a criminal trial that will likely bring down the entire company and make millions of investors come to terms with billions of dollars in losses, many of whom invested way more than they can afford to lose and are likely facing financial ruin but don’t care because this is all just fake news and OneCoin is totally going to launch DealShaker v69 tomorrow and we’re all just a bunch of bitcoin haterz being paid by George Soros to prop up the archaic financial banking system 666 OneCoin turned the frogs gay do these samsung galaxy buds make my butt look big #MeToo
Phew. Sorry, where was I?
After BigCoin collapsed, Sebastian Greenwood joined forces with Ruja Ignatova to launch OneCoin.
Officially Greenwood was Master Distributor, a position he shared with Juha Parhiala.
Unofficially Greenwood was Ignatova’s equal, and co-conspired with her over every painstaking detail of OneCoin’s launch.
Although never confirmed, it is believed that at some point Ignatova and Greenwood were romantically linked.
Over the course of OneCoin, Greenwood went from being a fresh-faced scammer to a tubby lard arse.
This affliction was common with many of the Euro gentlemen OneCoin scammer clique Greenwood associated with. Maybe there’s something in the water in Thailand.
Things began to turn sour for Greenwood in mid 2018, following the seizure of $7.1 million by Chinese authorities.
Greenwood is then believed to have been arrested in Thailand and extradited to the US, either sometime in late 2018 or early 2019.
Greenwood’s current status is unknown, but he is believed to be cooperating with US authorities.
At least for him, I suppose the less time Greenwood with his squishy boyish looks spends in prison the better.
Juha Parhiala was Papa OneCoin to Ruja Ignatova’s Crypto Queen.
This beady eyed albino Shrek from Finland quickly established himself as a visual representation of the money OneCoin was stealing globally.
At the peak of his thievery, Ted Nuyten’s Business For Home was celebrating Parhiala’s monthly theft of over 4 million euros from OneCoin victims.
While Parhiala evidently knew dick about cryptocurrency, he was able to put on a convincing song and dance.
Well he was, until purported health complications saw him have to carry a gaudy skull-capped cane around.
After OneCoin collapsed in early 2017 and following reports of a Thai criminal investigation, Parhiala disappeared.
When he re-emerged in December 2017, it was as the new owner of a girly bar in Cambodia.
Over the past thirteen months Parhiala has rebranded himself as a “network marketing coach”.
His tacky OneCoin branded gold chain has since been rebranded with Solidus Global.
Solidus Global is basically a continuation of OneCoin, with gold the vehicle used instead of cryptocurrency.
Unlike OneCoin, in the six months so since it launched Solidus Global has failed to gain traction (a common theme among the various OneCoin clones launched).
Parhiala is believed to still spend the majority of his time in Asia.
Kari Wahlroos probably does a truck ton of crack. There, I said it.
Jokes aside, Wahlroos is known for his superhuman enthusiasm on stage.
There’s a fine line between catchy enthusiasm and “should somebody call an ambulance?”, with Wahlroos falling well beyond said line toward the latter.
After a messy breakup with Wellstar, Wahlroos joined OneCoin with much fanfare in 2015.
Ignatova harnessed Wahlroos’ amphetamine fuelled energy, and he was quickly put in charge of global promotion.
If there was a OneCoin event somewhere, Wahlroos would be bouncing off the walls hosting it.
Wahlroos also became known for his love of fast cars. There’s probably a joke about speed in there somewhere but I think I’ve said enough.
After OneCoin collapsed Wahlroos tried desperately for a year to keep the gravy train running.
By December 2017 however the writing was on the wall, and Wahlroos
bailed was fired.
Soon enough though he was back on the Ponzi train with DagCoin.
DagCoin – launched by a former OneCoin scammer, is like OneCoin but with a crappier name.
Within DagCoin Wahlroos retained his “eagle” status. A little fatter and a lot more sweatier, Wahlroos flies in and out of Dubai regularly on DagCoin promotional tours.
To Kari Wahlroos’ lawyers, I want to make it crystal meth clear that I don’t believe Wahlroos does or has ever done drugs. I think. Probably.
Fuck, anyone got Kevin Thompson’s number?
If I’ve learnt anything about Igor Alberts over the past four and a half years, it’s that he literally has a clown jumpsuit ready to go for any occasion.
Being International Women’s Day and all, I’d like to take this opportunity to shout out Albert’s wife, Andrea Cimbala.
I don’t know if Cimbala is blind, has suffered some horrific trauma, is ignorant or being held hostage, but her relationship to this magnificent beast of a man continues to puzzle.
Alberts competed with Parhiala and Greenwood for the top OneCoin earner spot on BusinessForHome.
He never quite got there though, peaking at only $2.4 million a month in late 2017. Not too shabby considering nobody else was making money in OneCoin after the Jan 2017 collapse.
As with the rest of OneCoin’s top brass, Alberts bailed by the end of year.
In a moment of rare clarity, Alberts lamented on the mistakes he’d made in OneCoin (but not the money he’d stolen).
Alberts then hitched his wagon to Kari Wahlroos and joined DagCoin.
With Cimbala popping out a kid every other year, Alberts continues life with seemingly not a care in the world.
He and Cimbala reside in the Netherlands, in a house that looks like it belongs in a Michael Jackson documentary.
To Igor Alberts’ lawyers, I want to make it known that I am in no way insinuating a comparison between Alberts and anything Michael Jackson may or may not have done.
OK seriously, does anyone have
Kevin Thom… No, I’m going to need to call in the big guns here.
Yo, get me Gerry Nehra on the phone.
There’s not much to say about Frank Ricketts, mostly owing to him being a “behind the scenes” guy.
After cashing out his SiteTalk OPN gig for a Black Diamond OneCoin position, Ricketts was instrumental in helping set up OneCoin’s money laundering network.
After Wahlroos’ ousting in late 2017, Ricketts had a brief stint in the spotlight.
He soon developed stage fright though and once again retreated to the shadows.
Sometime in 2018 Ricketts left OneCoin and disappeared altogether.
In August 2018 Ricketts resurfaced as CEO of AuLives, yet another OneCoin Ponzi points clone.
The AuLives website currently has an Alexa rank of 1.6 million and falling. Consequently Frank Ricketts is laying low. Very low.
Given Ricketts probably worked closely with Mark Scott through his IMS Marketing companies, the fallout of OneCoin’s bust is probably going to reach him at some point.
The Steinkeller Brothers
The Steinkeller Brothers were essentially OneCoin’s kingpins in Italy.
Through the brother’s One DreamTeam downline, Ted Nuyten clocked the Steinkellers’ OneCoin earnings at $2.5 million in mid 2017.
And then… they weren’t. Likely having seen the writing on the wall after OneCoin’s January 2017 collapse, the Steinkeller’s sensationally walked away from their golden goose income.
Three months later Italian authorities banned OneCoin for being a pyramid scheme and fined it 2.5 million euros.
The One DreamTeam downline meanwhile was left in the not so capable hands of Staffan Liback.
… How to describe Liback?
Well he’s sort of like Kari Wahlroos, but with only half the crack (god dammit Oz…).
Anyway within a few months either Liback had fucked up the Steinkeller’s One DreamTeam or it collapsed.
About a month ago Liback resurfaced to promote Cloud Horizon, some bullshit discount app pyramid scheme run by, wait for it… Frank Ricketts.
Frankie boy, looking utterly defeated. There he is!
Ted Nuyten and his BusinessForHome website were OneCoin’s go to for online promotion.
Without fail any time news of regulatory significance involving OneCoin broke, trusty Ted would publish a new article about “so and so now stealing this much” from OneCoin investors.
It was almost as if Nuyten had a queue of these articles ready to go at any given time.
In addition to cash for comment, Nuyten also personally featured in OneCoin promotional material:
When Nuyten’s attempts to bury factual coverage of OneCoin’s problems failed, BehindMLM found itself the target of an ongoing campaign of vitriol.
By 2018 however, as it had for everyone else, the OneCoin well ran dry for Nuyten.
Either that or his continued support of OneCoin was starting to affect his cash for comment side hustle.
Whatever the reason, Nuyten’s reporting of OneCoin took on a more critical tone (no more celebrations of blatant theft).
Unfortunately however, this didn’t coincide with a change in attitude.
To this day Nuyten continues to assist in the promotion of OneCoin Ponzi clones.
Trying to quantify how much additional money was lost as a direct result of Nuyten’s promotion of OneCoin is difficult.
Every time Nuyten published a OneCoin fluff piece, within minutes it was being pushed heavily on social media – often times by OneCoin itself.
The worst part of it, at least from my perspective, is that because Nuyten is out there obviously accepting some form of compensation for coverage – his readers think we’re in on it too.
If I had a dagcoin for everytime a OneCoin investor accused me of “writing for bitcoin” (don’t laugh, it happened), I’d have enough to start my own Ponzi shitcoin – with change.
The voice. No seriously, the voice.
So much so was Ken Labine’s natural speaking voice a problem that, I can’t remember which, he resorted to either digitally dropping it down an octave or forcing himself to speak lower.
How do I know this? Because he told the world in one of videos.
But I digress, who was Ken Labine?
I forget which cartoon it was, but there’s that one with a recurring old lady and yappy chihuahua punchline (Loony Tunes?). If you’ve seen it you know which one I’m talking about.
That pretty much sums up Ken Labine.
Labine practically stalked BehindMLM’s coverage for months.
Any time we published an update on OneCoin’s regulatory problems, Labine’d put out a 6 hour documentary in which he’d rant and rave at the camera about how facts weren’t facts.
Over time Labine’s antics found himself an admiring audience within the OneCoin faithful. Mostly people who saw an unstable angry man ranting in OneCoin’s defense, but understood little else.
At his nastiest I’m aware of Labine harassing family members to get the attention of those that ignored him and his abusive YouTube videos.
Initially an amusing novelty, Labine soon wore out his welcome and was largely ignored.
After OneCoin collapsed, Labine spent the rest of 2017 trying to reinvent himself as Canada’s Kari Wahlroos.
When that didn’t work out Labine quietly left OneCoin for DagCoin.
A shadow of his former online self, Labine’s social media profiles have been relatively abandoned since mid 2018.
Personally I like to think Labine found the medication he didn’t know he was looking for. Drugs. I’m talking about drugs.
Look, I’d even be willing to take on Scott Warren at this point. If anyone has a shot at putting together a legal opinion to convince a judge this article isn’t what it appears to be, it’s him.
Muhammad Zafar is largely responsible for the proliferation of OneCoin throughout Pakistan and the UK’s Muslim community.
On little else than “I look like you and believe in god”, Zafar was able to convince thousands to invest in OneCoin under him.
At his peak, Zafar was raking in just under a million a month.
You know the drill by now though; OneCoin collapsed in early 2017 and sometime later that year, Zafar bailed.
These days Zafar goes by “Dr. Zafar” on Facebook, wherein he’s busy promoting the BitherCash Ponzi scheme…
…to the same community he pitched OneCoin to.
Moyn and Monir Islam
What would you get if put Igor Alberts on a crash diet for a few years and then split him in half?
Moyn and Monir Islam.
The Islam brothers were second fiddle to Muhammad Zafar in spreading OneCoin throughout the UK’s Muslim community.
They were like a trendy alternative to Zafar, with Igor Alberts levels of sweg.
Of course in true millennial style, when OneCoin went tits up the Islam brothers were among the first to bail.
After OneCoin the Islams fled their victims in the UK and relocated to Dubai. From there they went on to promote Wor(l)d International, Omnia Tech and now Melius.
Tom McMurrain is everything Ken Labine wishes he was.
Deep voice, rugged build, a criminal past, time served in prison and… well OK, maybe not everything.
McMurrain emerged as one of OneCoin’s most prominent US promoters, until they pulled the rug out from under him.
Like Labine, McMurrain was known for making aggressive YouTube videos slamming anyone he felt was critical of OneCoin.
Rather than scream at a camera though, McMurrain opted for gradual deception.
A little misdirection here, a small lie there, mm’kay? A stretching of the truth here, mountains of crypto techno jargon mm’kay? Throw in some red herrings and… before you knew it McMurrain had you convinced up was down, down was up and OneCoin wasn’t a fraudulent investment scheme.
Through VPNs, shell corporations, fraudulently obtained banking channels and who knows what other shady “let’s evade the law” methodologies, McMurrain gave it his best.
OneCoin no longer operating in the US eventually took its toll however, and so he quietly left and went off to launch his own CoinMD Ponzi clone.
What Ken Labine and Tom McMurrain were to video, Igor Krnic was to text.
OneCoin affiliates arrested again? Igor Krnic can explain that.
OneCoin lost another bank account? Igor Krnic can explain that.
Too busy trying to find new bagholders to sell your OneCoins to so that you can buy the family house back, to notice that your dog died, your wife left you and the kids are gone? Igor Krnic can explain that.
Igor Krnic’s resolve to come up with any bullshit to explain away everything and anything OneCoin related earned him the title of Chief Excuses Officer.
Seriously, if anything abnormal happened related to OneCoin; Igor Krnic could explain it.
The tragedy of Krnic’s fictitious explanations however was that there was no shortage of desperate believers.
Even in the wake of Konstantin Ignatov’s arrest and Ruja Ignatova’s indictment, there are still those on Igor Krnic’s forum who think this is just a mild obstacle to overcome.
I’ll just say let everyone remain calm, as we’ve been here before and just like the German investigation we came out good, The haters will keep trying, as long we good, we gonna come out strong again, only problem another couple of months delays.
Having a real blockchain was already proven by the German investigators. USA authorities have been watching Onecoin for a long time now.
I can’t imagine Konstantin would be dumb enough to come to the USA if he was actually doing something illegal.
I hope for my sake and everyone else we come out with a winner here. My mother’s future depends on this.
We definitely put money into packages we could not afford to lose.
Whats required now is an urgent official news from company to clear things up and counter all allegations with facts.
On the plus side Krnic’s forum was a fascinating collective of some of the world’s most gullible idiots. Thanks for the many laughs guys.
Pierre Arens and Pablo Munoz
In an attempt to buy legitimacy, Pierre Arens and Pablo Munoz (below) were OneCoin’s first (and last) “external” hires.
By that I mean they were recruited from outside the MLM underbelly, for the sole purpose of lending OneCoin legal street cred (again, don’t laugh… it happened – twice.).
In both instances, the promotional hype behind both hires lasted longer then Arens’ and Munoz’s actual tenures.
In fact I can categorically state that both came and went from OneCoin, in less time than it’s taken you to read this far down.
Pablo Munoz was announced as CEO in late 2016. After featuring in a few OneLife promotional videos, Munoz was never heard from again.
He was listed as a confirmed speaker at OneCoin’s mid 2017 Macau event, but failed to make an appearance.
Before the dust had settled from Munoz’s hasty departure, Pierre Arens was announced as OneCoin’s new CEO.
Same story. A video here, a video there and by October 2017 Arens was also out.
No explanation has been provided for either CEO’s disappearance. Seriously, neither has been seen or heard from since their respective OneCoin stints.
On that note I feel compelled to requote an excerpt from one of the DOJ’s subpoenaed emails.
Upon receiving lip from OneCoin affiliates regarding OneCoin’s actual value, Konstantin Ignatov warned;
If I see something like this again I will cut the person’s head off publicly.
You know my sister, what happened when somebody messed up what she did.
Now I’m not saying when it became apparent hiring randoms wasn’t going to fix OneCoin’s mounting regulatory problems, that Ruja ordered Konstantin to take Arens and Munoz out back and UFC them six feet under into a Macau ditch… but well, we honestly don’t know.
Remember, these are the same people who unapologetically killed bitcoin. So anything is possible.
Pierre, Pablo, if you’re reading this blink once into the monitor. Send help.
OK so obviously this isn’t meant to be taken too seriously, and by no means is it a comprehensive list of everyone involved in OneCoin.
I’ve probably left some people out that I shouldn’t have, but right now it’s as complete a list of significant OneCoin figures I can remember over the past few years.
What I want to do here is address those that have lost money in OneCoin.
I get that while Ruja Ignatova is out in the wild there’s hope that (insert miracle here) somehow this will play out like a bad dream you’ll wake up from. And if you truly believe that, more power to you.
Take it from me though, the sooner you come to terms with your losses the sooner you can start working to get your life on track. But I’m not here to push you to do anything either way.
What I want to close with is acknowledgement that you’ve been lied to. You were lied to about OneCoin, every step of the way. Everything the you were told the business was doing at any given time, was a lie.
OneCoin was a Ponzi project put together by two then small-time scammers, that on the back of cryptocurrency hype spiraled completely out of control.
I’m beyond presenting you with the evidence to try to convince you one way or another, it is what it is.
Just know that as you were lied to by OneCoin, its executives and top promoters (many of whom are featured above), chances are you were also lied to about BehindMLM and why I do what I do.
On days like today, when push comes to shove, I’m here doing what I always do. Getting you the most accurate MLM news and information I can in a timely manner – and presenting it in an as easy to read format as possible.
For you, and everyone who has lost money in scams before and who will after you, I’ll continue to do what it is I do for as long as I’m able to.
Situations like OneCoin today are precisely why BehindMLM exists. And are truly believe where we shine as a website.
If you want headlines, read any of the dozens of news websites that have, for the first time ever, covered OneCoin today.
If you want an in-depth roadmap of how we got to this point, a roadmap of billions in financial losses if you will, BehindMLM has over two hundred articles on OneCoin in our archives.
To everyone who has been part of the OneCoin journey over the past few years, my sincerest thanks.
Some of you participated in our comments, some of you emailed me with tidbits here and there, some of you left clues elsewhere on the internet for me to find, and some of you all of the above.
For some readers OneCoin was a fleeting affair, glossed over and quickly forgotten about. For others, you’ve been following for years and know just how big of a saga this was to keep track of.
I won’t risk naming you, lest I leave anyone out. But to each and every one of you, no matter how big or small your contribution to the gathering of information, thank you.
well done Oz.. I am sure u saved many people from loosing more money to these crooks.. keep it up ! the world needs you and BehindMLM 🙂
Thank you so much Oz!
Very good article, and really, I hope that all these top-earners will be charged as well, and find their way to jail.
Some of them are located in Dubai, and sadly Dubai does not deliver people to other authorities.
Steinkeller brothers are located there, now active for Futurenet, and it is being said that if they did not invest hundreds of millions in Futurenet, they would not exist anymore. So, they continue to keep their grip in the industry.
You forgot one major player who is leading the pack of wolves since more than a year in the latin community – Jose Gordo.
Thanks Oz for keeping this saga in the spotlight. You were attacked because you were having a tremendous impact and keeping many from falling victim.
But now we come to the ugly part of every Ponzi. In every Ponzi that is shut down, or they run with the money, there are always suicides. Depending on the amount stolen sometimes this is just 1-3 suicides. Others we have assisted law enforcement in shutting down it has been in the dozens. My fear is that due to all the countries OneCoin operated in, and the number of people who were conned into joining the number of suicides will be the largest number I have ever seen in exposing these Ponai’s for more than 15 years.
I suicide is one too many, and I hope I am wrong with my guestimate of how many suicides there will be, but sadly I am sure I won’t be far off. I can easily see 75-100 suicides, and probably more that won’t be made known publicly.
While it is so gratifying to have had a hand in the shutdown of numerous Ponzi’s, now comes the part I hate about them. There needs to be more attention to this ugly part of Ponzi’s so hopefully more can be prevented from happening in the future. This is the “dark secret” of every Ponzi.
Every major promoter of this Ponzi should be charged with the murder for every suicide that happens because they played a role in it happening. Not once did they tell people not to invest more than they could afford to lose; just the opposite. They will have blood on their hands but they could care less.
I am already seeing comments on several forums and FB pages that truly are scary about people’s desperation with the news today. I do pray that those who are truly hurting will seek professional help to deal with this loss, not take their own life. In many ways this is worse than having a loved one die for them. I have no doubt that many will lose their homes, farms, cars, possessions from this Ponzi. Welcome to the real world of the dark side of Ponzi’s.
OZ, let’s not forget the companies acquired in OneCoin, known to already be Ponzi schemes!
Like Coningus and Bonofa; where many credits were converted into OneCoin, forcing people to promote OneCoin to hope to cash in on some money!

Best. Article. Ever.
A big, fluffy feather in your creative writing cap.
While I glee at this saga coming to a close, I do have empathy for those who joined just wanting to put food on their table. It’s a sad, sad situation for them.
Until the act of MLMing is considered a white collar crime committed by all participants to different degrees, in effect forcing the removal of any uncertainties regarding it’s legitimacy, all I have to say is…..
This comment from Igor’s forum:
I wonder how this can be? Didn’t the OneCoin Ponzi pimps repeat it over and over again that you must not invest more than you can lose with a smile?
I see the serial scammer Lee O’Shea has been very quiet about One Coin for some time now. He pulled Hundreds, if not Thousands into this scam.
He is onto his third or fourth Scam now with Mize. He is currently out in Africa, pulling yet more unsuspecting people into his latest scam.
I remember reading in BehindMLM a couple of years ago about the One Coin scam and Lee O’Sheas association with it.
He was telling his victims/followers that One Coin was going to rule the World, and prove all the haters wrong. These scams always come out.
If you wish not to be scammed. Stay well away from Lee O’Shea.
I truly would like to know the fates of Pierre Arens and Pablo Munoz. Pierre gave a public resignation letter but Pablo just…
…disappeared. Honest – first he was there and all of a sudden he was not. OneLife has never explained where their CEO disappeared, they don’t even seem to remember that they had a CEO at some point of time.
In Orwell’s future this happened to persons that needed to “disappear”: all of a sudden they had vanished and everybody acted as if they never even existed. (They were killed, of course and that is I fear could have happened to Pablo too.)
Did you see that plot twist in Igor Krnic “One coin no-debate” forum?
Thank you Oz, for all your hard work and diligence!
Terrific article Oz, thanks
EPIC compilation post, Oz. Thanks to all the folks that continued to drive this. i was saved from losses by this very site when I was first approached by one coniners a few years ago.
Great article, the only name missing in above list is Ed Ludbrook.
1 October 2016, the launch of the second version of OneCoin’s fake blockchain simulator:
@Oz Thanks for all articles, we’ve read them all, including the comments.
This news and this day feels like a victory.
I hope the authorities are paying attention…
Here’s one taken out of context by Curry Hater:
Curry Hater reads it to be One Coin is a competitor of Wall Street. In fact, Mr. Vance means we must keep the financial industry safe from corruption.
For further help in translation, let me apply the same word usage to the last US election:
‘We must keep the Russian hackers and fake ads from compromising the integrity of our election system.’
Ah yes, Ed Ludbrook. I’ll add him tomorrow.
I don’t recall running into Jose Gordon though. I have seen the name about but not to the I ran up against the others covering OneCoin.
Perhaps a language issue on my part?
No-one joined OneCoin to put food on their table. Everyone in OneCoin already had food on the table, otherwise they wouldn’t have been of any interest to OneCoin – no money to invest. They joined to get rich quick.
I don’t generally go in for victim-blaming, especially not at times like these, but dancing around the reasons people join schemes like this doesn’t help anyone.
No civilised society has ever convicted someone for causing the suicide of another. If any justice system did so, the result would be a massive surge in people killing themselves, seeking revenge beyond the grave. (Prosecution for the offence that led the person to commit suicide – fraud in this case – is, of course, completely different.)
Only one person is responsible for a suicide and that is the suicide themselves.
This was affirmed in the UK recently – the prosecution service attempted to prosecute a woman for murder after she threw acid in a man’s face, who went on to have himself killed by Dignitas.
They lost (although naturally she was jailed for the acid-throwing). It was a moronic charge and should never have been brought.
Talking about suicide in this way is very dangerous because it is proven that normalising suicide in this way – as if it is a rational response to a set of circumstances, in this case losing your money in a Ponzi scheme – makes people more likely to kill themselves.
Any OneCoin victims reading this and even thinking about suicide should talk to the Samaritans or equivalent suicide prevention services in their own country.
These pages should belong to Jose Gordo:

Good article Oz, on top of everything you’ve done over the years.
I see Krnic has started a Wish List of Things That Won’t Happen..
I believe we’d be remiss if we didn’t include Chris Principe. His run as a promoter wasn’t that long but he earned his spot by suing on of our own.
Geez, the one time I throw a bone. Lol Anyway, I agree, but it doesn’t escape me that some folks are trying to ‘make better lives for themselves’. And, everything is relative.
And while greed may be the primary motive, I do not underestimate the powerful brainwashing tactics MLMers employ. Many of the participants, even though driven by greed, thought this was a legitimate way to achieve riches. And yes, they were blinded.
Suicide is a very real consequence of this type of fraud, and one’s own choice. After all, participants willingly gave their money and recruited others to give money. The guilt of that must be overwhelming.
But, participants were also scammed by this system which has a confusing message. Isn’t it time for that to stop? How about instead of contemplating suicide, willing-victims work to protect their children from making the same mistake? Educate others and make yourself a hero in spite of your losses. Don’t take the easy way out, or it will be all for naught. You can make a difference.
This is precisely why I want all doubt removed by making MLMing illegal. One Coin willing-victims should want this too. Then, no one has an excuse for joining and doing MLM, let alone involving others – unless you are a criminal!
I reiterate. This isn’t a cryptocurrency scam. This is MLM using cryptocurrency as a lure. Big difference. Remember, the lure can change, but the act of MLMing remains the same.
People and regulators are just too stubborn to admit the inherent flaw in MLM. How many more billions and lives must we lose before things change?
And now that I got all my niceness out of the way, if one is an MLM defender moving forward, or a repeat offender, or currently supports and encourages friends in MLM, so not sorry for your loss.
Quite frankly, who really gives a toss what Krnic says anymore ?
Seriously, the guy doesn’t even have comedy value any longer.
The guy’s deranged.
Ted Nuyten just deleted the comments section on BusinessForHome’s “Ruja Ignatova Indicted, Konstantin Ignatov Arrested In The USA” article.
When I last checked earlier this morning there were 13, including one which mentioned that Ted and BFH should consider tempering their enthusiasm for promoting SCAMS.
Jose Gordo became I believe the Master Distributor for Latin America and Mexico after Sebastien left and he was a member of their so called inner circle. If you see Onecoin or Onelife in Any country there you see Jose Gordo.
Great work, Oz. And, on a side note, thank you for reminding everyone Ted Nuyten is simply a male prostitute. If you pay him, he’ll say nice things about your deal.
None of us here I think… of course. But he still has a large cohort of gullible idiots.
I am afraid he knows perfectly what and why he did and does. I did not give him too much attention, but based on what I’ve seen… he could be professional PR spokesman / opinion maker.
Is “Jose Gordo” meant to be a real name? “Gordo” means “fat” in Spanish.
His full name is JOSE ANTONIO GORDO VALERO:
Correct, announcement here: NOLINK://www.onelife.eu/en/news/this-is-a-memorable-day-for-the-onelife-network-
Fantastic article and very entertaining read!
RE: Jose Gordo – He definitely became Steinkeller level and seemed to be rarely seen without his sidekick, Mariana Lopes DeWaard, who became the biggest bi-lingual scammer at the top of the pyramid.
Together, they were responsible for expanding the launch of all of Latin America over the past 3 years.
Iam tell you all those are talk bulls,,, ….. Onecoin is not scam !!!
You will watch on October 2019 the onecoin will public on market like bitcoin. That you will face drop
Waste your time blah blah blah on website full of crap.
Come on onecoin keep fight it stay be strong they doing negative on this website.
scammer meltdowns = always funny. especially now.
ANDY: With all of the factual evidence demonstrating that OneCoin was a clear scam and Ponzi Scheme, you are coming on this site to promote it, are you just stupid or an idiot or what?
The last educational package that Andy bought, he paid with his worthless brain, because he had no more money. His original fortune is now in a private bank account of Ruja. 😀
Many people I know invested in this deal and some made money. Some people I met made a fortune.
They ones I knew were convinced it was a real investment in a new, real cryptocurrency. They weren’t scammers they thought they were in front of something that was legitimate.
Some went to London to see “Dr” Ruja and came away convinced it was for real. Some met with her in person and it appeared her story checked out.
That she really worked in the industry and understood it and felt Bitcoin was too limited and the world would need a crypto with many more coins available and all that.
If you people reading this sad tale, now that it’s surely true that it’s a scam, think everyone who put money in was an idiot or a scammer it’s not true. It was sold as a solid investment and at the time it actually made sense.
Had they created a real blockchain and a real coin and whatever they could have something legit that would continue on. Instead it seems it was a lie from the beginning and the people who perpetrated it should spend forever in jail.
Lives were ruined, people destroyed, hope gone and misery for probably thousands of honest people is now their destiny due to these despicable scammers. I hope they find that horrible woman and put her in a dirty jail forever.
Hands of that Meth, its a Dangerous drug that causes braindamage!
Here is a few pictures with leaders that should be on the list, most of them early leaders with close contact to Ruja, together they brought Onecoin to Scandinavia, all of them left the ship over a year ago, but they shouldn’t be forgotten!!
Nobody in OneCoin made money on the coins. The whole scam was getting people to invest in Ponzi points that had severe withdrawal restrictions from day 1. It’s right there in Ruja’s emails.
The money made in OneCoin was via pyramid recruitment. I can appreciate you knowing people but anyone who made money in OneCoin had to scam others to make it.
Nothing Ignatova said could have justified pyramid recruitment.
The actual victims who were bullshitted into believing in “the tech” lost money. The net-winners recruited full well knowing they weren’t selling anything to retail customers.
The five stages of grief:
#1. denial (check)
The Easter Bunny and Harry Potter 100% agree with you!
You have OneCoin reboots like Dagcoin with the same players from Onecoin now making the same insane promises screwing people worldwide again and sites pushing these crooks like businessforhome with “top money makers” lists.
After seeing this over and over again especially here on BLM, have come to the conclusion that until 2nd tier people are prosecuted and brought to shame, these schemes will continue to plague the world.
A 4 Billion $ scam and based on the indictments, a total of 3 main people have been indicted and looks the unindicted co-conspirator which am assuming is Greenwood based on his arrest and extradition is singing to get off as much time off his sentence as possible.
Also the wheels of justice do turn slow even in the US and usually they come out of the gate roaring and then things grind down as people lawyer up and in this case, it looks like plenty like the Karls, Igors and Zafars of the world got away scot-free at least this time.
Saw a youtube video of clown Igor pushing “how people can become millionaires” on the Dagcoin scam. Blows my mind that people would fall for this after his Onecoin video debacles but hey, they are having a huge conference in Dubai and all the players are back on site again promoting another huge scam with nary a conscience or iota of decency.
OZ: On a side note, Similar to what businessforhome is doing, would be interesting to have a dollar ticker of what each of the scams you profile has sucked people for.
not forgetting the onecoin scammers in Trinidad known as King Jayms and others facebook.com/kingjayms.wordwide
You are forgetting about Raul Pazos Medina who is currently in Colombia and Ecuador still trying to defraud people and still trying to sell the onecoin fake coin.
I dont know what to do to stop him since I do not live there.
I’m surprised that my sponsor isn’t here. She worked OneCoin like a job, a career, 8-10 hours a day. She once told me she had a half a billion coins or something like that.
I sent her all the first articles you wrote about OneCoin being a scam, and cried to her about how I couldn’t afford to lose my money — and she got so indignant, and said that it was all lies and that NOTHING could be proven.
Believe it or not, she was still promoting it a little over a month ago, still trying to sign up more innocents, still trying to steal more money from more people.
I hope they do go after all those people who kept promoting long after this was proven a scam ….
Y’all gotta remember, this isn’t a definitive list of anyone and everyone in OneCoin.
Since day one I joined this scheme I suspected this to be a scam. But the agents and local leaders here are still obsessed with what Dr. Ruja and konstantin promises.
I wish these people should be exposed and drag to court for duping the poor investors. I can name all of them.
Why did you join then?
Hilarious, but there is something I never saw mentioned : physical threats again investors/affiliates in Europe, when they try to recover their money or become critics.
A French magazine did a report on this two years ago (in French).
When there is so much money at work, even if most of the bosses are clowns, some muscle is always needed.
In other words, you took a calculated gamble and you lost.
And people wonder why law enforcement appears reluctant to act – sheesh
You left out, Nigel Allan and where he drifted off to.
@OZ: thanks for the excellent review of the history
The actual “hotel” of Konstantin Ignatov in US can be found here bop.gov – Federal Bureau of Prisons –
the Inmate Igor has the BOP-Reg.# 77737-112, 33 y, male, white , LA MDC
Andy, I know you’re in denial, but do you realize that using the word “negative” is a trick by MLM scammers. An attitude of negative or positive has nothing to do with FACTS.
You have been taught to classify everyone who poses legitimate questions or presents facts as “negative”. This is done by scammers to distract you from objectively looking at the information.
Stop focusing on someone else’s enthusiasm, or lack there of. It doesn’t matter.
can you please read these 32 pages and tell me, what of these facts, which leads to the arrest of Igor, are fake informationen.
I don´t find any false informationen .
Thank you for your time and effort into this. Once again brilliant article. Also beside all this people like dr Parwaiz Daud who’s not even a doctor and Masoor Tawafi destroyed my life and many of my friends life.
He made me sell my taxi license and my Freind sold his shop to buy power pack. Now they started the same concept with a different name called aulives.
Where has justice gone why doesn’t he gets punished for the crimes he has committed and still committing to this day. Muslim community should know this guy along with Mansoor has caused too much demanded to to your religion and community. They should be mentioned whenever you bring in Onecoin.
Now a days dr Parwaiz and Mansoor don’t even mention gold backed crypto but acredited Uk educational courses to get people from Far East and poorer countries to fall into their scam where they won’t be able to do anything once they got people’s money.
Ruja was bettter than these two scambags. Please look into aulives again and write another article.
How can we forget Joey Boughey?
Look here: https://behindmlm.com/mlm-reviews/aulives-review-sgc-ponzi-points-onecoin-clone/
Funny that no one has mention Udo Deppisch , that has been next to Kari & Ruja from start.
Also the 2 Swedes Max & Navid that where part of the first Onecoin Board, they are the reason for Onecoins success in the northern countries
Plot twists should be unexpected. This is just Krnic pulling the “I’m a victim just like you guys” endgame play. He’ll have been practising it in the mirror for months.
Watching onecoin youtube videos and seeing Tom Mcmurrain “Destroying claims onecoin is a Ponzi scheme” is something else.
Must be truly delusional to believe it is anything but and he is currently peddling his “coinmd” scam, onecoin redux…
I’m amazed that Igor krnic has not yet closed his forum. One would figure that he would be packing his bags right now.
Does he think he is immune to any consequences?
The people writing in Igor Krnic’s forum must be delusional… Saying the arrest and accusations are a conspiracy against Onecoin manufactured by US government or something like that. They wont believe the truth even though it is obvious that Onecoin is a scam.
He is playing the role again, this time of the victim. Oz nailed his role in the scheme, also many people believed him, and he knowingly supported lies from Sofia with the ones he made up himself. Now when the wheels have turned around he tries to paint himself in different picture, and join the rest of the victims.
People are quick to forget how he always used his arguments as having direct contact with Sofia and that his sources are 100% accurate. Never questioned anything, was rude and abusive to critics.
Not many know that he was involved with Herbalife before Onecoin, he was connected with local quacks for “natural medicine”, believes in conspiracy theories (anti vaccine) and so on (flat earth ?).
My point is that you shouldn’t trust him a single word that he writes or says. Currently there is no info on facebook in Serbian or Croatian for local Onecon/Onelie members, which means he and his leader palls are looking for something to give to their followers that would shift the blame from them.
Until now they were heralded as leaders that have most accurate information about Onecoin. With Konstantine being arrested all their “accomplishments” have evaporated.
I expect them to go full “blame USA, blame Banks, blame critics” route.
you just know it’s all been archived and researched by authorities. just like they used talkgold and mmg.
There is no way Igor Krnic is going to be prosecuted in Serbia.
I just received this from a Onecoin leader in Sweden.
The new one coin logo might be… Warning! Description might be too graphic for some…
A one coin inserted in the rear end of a person bending over, with black and white stripes to either side.
The new way to show your support instead of the existing hand gesture, will be to pull down your trousers, bend over and proudly flash your coin to the world.
Who knows, this might become huge in the slammer!
“Coach Putra” is just parroting a variation of the garbage we see whenever there’s a major MLM scam bust.
The “vision” of Ignatova was to scam as many greedy people as possible, blame “someone else” and do a runner.
And that’s exactly what happened.
Scam as many greedy people as possible? Check.
Blame someone else? Haters, check.
Do a runner? Check.
You can stop reading from here. If you have to ignore the facts and suspend reality, you’ve already lost.
Just like any lawyer trying to argue OneCoin wasn’t committing wire fraud is going to lose in court.
Think about it: Ignatova’s number 2, Sebastian Greenwood, is currently doing everything he can to reduce the time he’ll serve in a pound me in the ass prison.
If he knows “lulz we didn’t sell investment packages” won’t get him off the hook, what does that tell you.
Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but if the feds/DoJ are after you, the odds are not good for the accused – they have over 90% conviction rate across the board. For SDNY the conviction rate is 95,7%! They don’t fool around, take cases that have shaky grounds.
So good luck Ruja, Konstantin, Mark and Sebastian. 😉

I orginally posted this list on Oct 3, 2016
Here’s a partial list of OneCoin investors who are actively selling to their friends, family members and Social Media contacts on Facebook:
Ken Labine – Canada
Jason Richard Mangan
Joseph W Piper
Jodi Tressler Greene
Michael & Latasha DeArmond
Lucille Bolton Shannon
Alan C. Delaney
Joseph A Mitchell
Crystal Marie Spath
Robin ‘Robertson’ Keith
Lia Jean King
Bernie Wi Neera
Ted Toastman Cross
Laurie J. Hoyt
Cathren T Marksen
Thomas H. Murrin
Are Krnic pals running away soon ?
His partner in crime and one of the mods on the forums, Torbica, has cleaned his youtube channel:
Used to be a crapload of promotional videos, including Ruja, Sebastian, Arrens questionnaire. All gone now.
Because he’s legged it to Dubai or Cambodia?
Dont forget Peter Shaw who was instrumental in setting up the UK territory for OneCoin and introduced the 10 or so UK leaders to the audience there.
Included Zafar and Mirza. He had previously sold in Netherlands and Ireland but has been quiet for about a year now. Said to be living in Thailand now.
Wikipedia’s OneCoin page needs updating. There’s not yet anything about Konstantin’s arrest.
I didn’t notice this before, and the DoJ press release is updated today, but I just found that they have opened a tip/victim line for OneCoin:
tried to change it, but needs special Editing Power/Permission.
I would add Sal Leto, Maurice Katz, and Steve Gotberg to your list.
No mention of Duncan Arthur?
Duncan Arthur was a late emergence. Nothing much really happened over the past year.
Most of the damage was done up until around late 2017.
Duncan Arthur emerged in public quite late, but he said in October 2018 that he has been with OneCoin “two and a bit” years, hired by Ruja. (youtu.be/dHeVQK5gHgI?t=513) So he has been in OneCoin from late 2016.
That, in addtion to his director role in DealShaker, makes him a potential co-conspirator and/or valuable witness.
He is the only one from scam gang who has mediocre professional background relating to banking, payments and AML world. I think that heightens his responsibility.
Wouldn’t be surprising if he is detained soon.
When will Duncan Arthur delete this on linkedin.com? 😀
The brainless idiot Martin Mayer (“Ma Ma”) has uploaded two videos on YouTube:
Does anyone know who Arthur Duncan is? 😀
#84 that must be the most ridiculous or idiot press release in history ! He is in the USA.
It proves once again that Onecoin has been judging their distributor base as complete morons and it seems to be true.
Because no meetings so far are cancelled with high end speakers such as Jose Gordo or others in Latin America, Eastern Europe and even Italy. For them it is business as usual pushing people to invest cash so they can qualify for the next Pin rank and of course take the money.
On the other hand the one thing I feel that is very strange, no news about Sebastian Greenwood. To me that proves he is the one talking and might be collaborating with the USA government.
It’s indeed very underwhelming press release. It will not help OneCoiners who will continue to be sweating like a protistute in church.
It talks only about Konstantin’s crime allegantion, not a word about Ruja’s. And it didn’t even try to deny those allegations let alone the veracity of any explosive claim from the court documents. It’s like they pretend that the DoJ court documents don’t exist.
This newsletter came some minutes ago:
Oz, Thank you very much for your job and researches over the past years.
who know the names of these top onecoin scammers!
ruja and her top gang. let us know.
There’s an event planned in Sweden on 16th March headlined by high profile people like Simon Le, Gordo, Zahid and Mariana Lopez de Waard. The cream of the current crop?
Tickets were originally available through Tickster, a reputable ticket vendor but their event page was taken down. Presumably after a tip off?
What you ask yourself is, who is running the show now? Konstantin never seemed like the sharpest knife, Ruja is long since gone. Is there someone in the background pulling strings?
I spontaneously recognize the following fraudsters:
Igor Alberts – Andreea Cimbala – Pehr Karlsson – Sebastian Greenwood – Kari Wahlroos – Aaron Steinkeller – Muhammad Zafar – Mariana Lopez de Waard – Ed Ludbrook – Udo Deppisch – Ralf Paulick – Anton “Toni” Federspiel – Habib Zahid – Cristi Calina – Christian Steinkeller
I can identify the name of the woman behind Igor Alberts. She is still very active.
You can still buy tickets for this event in Melbourne:
Who pays 212 Australian dollars to lie and be cheated?
I would also be surprised if the announced fraud event will take place in Munich at the end of March:
You can add to that list of scammers the dutch gang from Igor with Patricia Numan, Bing Voorham, Bart Smets.
You also have other European leaders such as Massimo Del Moro, Kent Kruusma, the Islam brothers, the 3 Steinkellers, Stafan Libback and plenty more just do a little reverse search on Onecoin 2015 and 2016 and many publications pop up with posters of meetings and names.
I just want to thank you for your hard work in the field of MLM.
I’ve been a part of few online discussions in Finnish forums and every time it turns to the twists and turns of Onecoin, I can just come here and get the details from the blog posts you have done.
Not every time can I refer to here as your site is not in very high ranking among the OneCoin affiliate, but thanks to you referring also to the original source, I can refer to there.
And whenever I’m being asked if some “opportunity” is a scam or not, I tell people to check BehindMLM. I know that if you’ve reviewed it, the conclusion is valid.
So thank you for the work you’ve done during these years.
I want to also thank you, Oz. And to give any #CULT devotees the challenge, whether they be from OneCULT ranks or many of the other MLM/ (recently) MLM- “crypto” Opportunities, to publish their “Road Maps” on how to “MLM ‘Money'”.
How exactly do you IDIOTS (Konstantin and Sebastian’s words, by the way), think you can “MLM ‘Money?'”
You certainly ALL don’t depend on “Development Teams” and break-throughs in technology!
So, what is your “Value Proposition” if you do not even have a Development Team fighting for it?
This space has become a cesspool of “we promote shitcoin “x”
Sorry, suckers! Study blockchain, Consensus, and economics.
You pretty much allot #REKT and will continue to do so, until you learn how this is supposed to work and get bamboozled 9x out of 10.
Sorry for your loss.
Not sure if this has been already posted to BehindMLM, nothing surprising but information nonetheless.
Dantir Dilela LTD company information: i.ibb.co/kQt5fkP/Dantir-Dilela-LTD.png
Dantir Dilela LTD is the company behind newdealshaker.
Dantir Dilela LTD’s connection to OneCoin is Duncan Arthur who is the Director of Dantir Dilela. Duncan Arthur was hired to OneCoin by Ruja Ignatova according to his own words around mid 2016: t.co/JkLHp7OQlJ
Thanks for the support guys!
Duncan Arthur indicates on LinkedIn that he has been managing the DealShaker project since October 2016:
All cryptocurrencies are Ponzi schemes.
This is the quintessence of a Pozi scheme.
Here the first idiots who promoted OC in Morocco. still waiting for the Moroccan police to react.
Could it be that Duncan Arthur is the one running the show and not merely a hired hand?
He claims to have been hired 2016 but only stepped out in public mid-2018. Maybe out of necessity as front figures were lacking at the time?
You would guess that his company is billing the One companies a lot of money for “Dealshaker development”. Possible money laundering?
This is all speculation of course, but a loose end I hope someone is trying to pull.
Well, he sure has made a mess of DealShaker. He is totally incompetent to run anything let alone a multi-billion dollar company.
DealShaker is worse now than before they started trying to implement 2.0 version. The blind leading the blind it seems.
They all “talk” a good game, but can’t complete anything except take people’s money which they are very, very, very good at doing.
Nice text. Grossartig!
Beste News in years. Keep up the good work and thank you all.
Allegedly a big mistake has been fixed now:
I went to the restaurant after searching from an e-commerce platform “dealshaker” and I redeemed a plate of food cost 0.3ones. I ate and I paid using onecoin .what’s wrong with one coin?
Everything about the business outside of the “ecommerce” pseudo-compliance added to it after the fact. You can’t legitimize a Ponzi scheme.
If you want continue to be a disingenuous fuckwit, great. But with the US criminal cases we’re kinda past that now.
Hi, I am searching for information regarding Muhammad Zafar and his so called ‘doctorate’ appreciate if anyone can shed any further information about it, as very important.
Thanks in advance.
@melanie from Germany, can you help with further info about this?
Please add Mr Tim Brown to your Hall of Shame. He resides in Northern Ireland. He was the No 1 distributor in Noni Juice in the UK and Ireland.
He joined Onecoin and boasted of making over £1,000,000 in one year alone. He scammed a lot of people in Ireland before moving on to USI-TECH and scamming even more people.
There’s a few I was going to add after I wrote the original list.
Trouble is I never found myself back in the “zone” I was in when I put the original out. I kind of left it at that as the comments expanded the original list.
Jason Abercrombie makes advertising for behindmlm.com on Facebook: 😀
Daniel Edgardo Espitia – Former ONECOIN PARTNER.
Now on the DAGCOIN team with Igor XL Alberts.
We need to put some GPS tracker on these people’s butts so that we can be at least 100 miles away from these scammers/ con artists.
Dr Ruja should be voted the International Con Woman of the Decade …. LOL!!! First heard about her on the BBC “The Missing Cryptoqueen” podcast series.
Tanzanian Govt’ to Rule on frozen IMS funds in the coming days!
According to the prosecution, it was sad to note that several people, including government officials and religious leaders, were involved in the pyramid scheme and invested some millions of money to enrich themselves, but to the detriment of the country’s economy.
“You can imagine one religious leader took 100m/-offerings and sow such money in the pyramid scheme.
We believe that if the forfeiture order is granted, these government and religious leaders will stop from engaging in these dirty games. It will deter others from committing similar crimes,” the DPP said.
Some good stuff in here!
Thanks for the heads up Tim!
IMHO by far the best ever on this site! Please can we have an update! King, Adeel, Valkova, Hye, Simon Le, etc
I did try updating the list a while but couldn’t get in the zone.
I was definitely in a head space when I put the original list together.
A OneLife IMA from Switzerland (?) uploaded this old video with crooks Juha Parhiala and Tom McMurrain to YouTube in December 2019.
While this whole shit storm has turned into a light rain, Veselina Valkova is asking:
Igor Alberts, meet your match
Hell naw. Guy on the right has the Alberts drip but the outfit is nothing unless the buttons are done up and screaming for mercy.
Leinar: Cositorto’s avatar in the Zoe Metaverse:
If they had to show a pre-rendered video, I’m guessing Generation Zoe’s actual mEtAvErSe doesn’t exist yet?
Honestly though, the f. does a matrix cycler Ponzi need a metaverse for anyway?
