BitConnect is the example of what pure human greed is capable of

BitConnect gets delisted from the last exchange where it was traded. Even after its failure, BCC’s daily trading volume on TradeSatoshi exceeded $10,000, now it dropped to almost zero.

That's a sad ending for many so-called 'investors', but many of us could have been in their shoes. The whole crypto space looks like a pump and dump now, many coins have fallen 95%, even the beloved ones, like NANO or Verge. But the case of BitConnect is the example of what pure human greed is capable of.

Right from the start, it was clear as a day, that all this is just another Ponzi scheme. However, no one could care less — the money poured into BitConnect at an astonishing rate — it was stated that in the end, the founders netted $3 billion. We can remember other famous Ponzi schemes — like one, organized by Charles Ponzi himself. Or another 20-years long one by Bernie Madoff, which raised more than $17.5 billion, and was stopped only by a financial crisis in 2008. It's just ridiculous that someone who promises a 2% a day return, instead of using this scheme to get rich himself, would tell about it to anyone. But instead of being mocked, they get billions of dollars. Is it strange? Not at all.

You can start BitConnect 2.0 today and still get money. Why? Because the greed and the desire to get rich never fades away, it sits deep inside human nature. And for those, who still hold BCC like a crypto memento, remember: you don't lose if you don't sell.

In a press release, Tribe Accelerator said: “Tribe Accelerator is focused on laying the right foundations for the participating startups, and one of the best ways to do so, is to source for, and secure strategic partnerships with companies that have complementary capabilities, and the resources to push for a breakthrough in the industry.” The initiative is confident the long term prospects of blockchain are strong enough to merit full commitment and support from marquee businesses around the world. Ryan Chew, Managing Partner of Tribe Accelerator said: “We have a vision of how the technology – an enabler of cross sector innovation with transformative potential-can be beneficial in the everyday lives of people. To move forward as a society, we need to encourage experimentation, and once the benefits of blockchain technology become evident, mainstream adoption will undoubtedly follow.” Each of the three new partners is expected to work within its own set of vertical industries to lend expertise, knowledge, and technical mentorship to participating startup companies. Tribe Accelerator has closed the page for evaluating applications from project teams for its first batch of incubated companies, but pledges to open up again in April 2019. The building of a decentralized mainstream ecosystem is underway.
