ANALYZING THE FAKE DMCA
** Investigation in progress **
Yes, that’s right. Our team and friends are currently investigating this fake DMCA incident and analyzing all the public data we have with us. Right now we have the evidence captured and archived, we are still waiting for a response from DasCoin, Google and other related parties involved in this fake DMCA. This could take up to a couple of weeks.
However, make no mistake. This is indeed a case of copyright take-down fraud purported in order to hide online content. Once we compile all the facts of this case with due diligence, the final report will be published here.
We fight for the truth. If you have anything to contribute to this report or want to provide critical information against DasCoin, you can get in touch with us at [email protected] We’re open for dialogue, unless your intention is to threaten us and waste your time.
SO WHAT WERE THEY TRYING TO HIDE ?
In particular, a negative review/story against DasCoin which potentially hurt business and reputation. Here is an excerpt from that report –
Do not invest a single Satoshi into Dascoin!
Yesterday I attended a small meeting regarding cryptocurrency investments and somebody decided to try and pitch Dascoin, I was IMMEDIATELY sceptical at what I was hearing. Let me first be clear, DAS and Dascoin are not the same thing. DAS is a dash fork masternode coin and as far as I know is all legit. Dascoin, on the other hand, is a very shady project which I hope you stay away from once you have finished reading this post.
Dascoin is a classic ponzi scheme and was created by a team which is fully comprised of people who are not in any way cryptocurrency experts or advocates. Several of them have come directly from promoting Onecoin, which was another ponzi that ended with people being arrested. In fact, Dascoin is a Onecoin clone, the business model is very much similar and I suspect the end will be somewhat similar too. If this isn’t enough evidence for you to stay away, which it should be, I will now focus on the issues I see with the actual project itself. I will be using the Dascoin whitepaper as a reference, and I recommend you read through it. There is more fiction in the Dascoin whitepaper than there is in the Lord of the Rings books. I found myself both shocked and amused as I was going through it.
You cannot actually buy dascoin, you have to buy a licence which allows you to choose a package (with various escalating prices) which earns dascoin over time. It is like having a timeshare of a masternode, only you don’t have any control of it. Of course, the licence and it’s packages can only be purchased by the Dascoin team and OF COURSE there is a heavy emphasis on referring people, which upgrades the amount of Dascoin you receive.

WHAT IS A FAKE DMCA AND WHY ARE WE LISTED HERE ?
Soon after we published the first set of our investigation reports on fake DMCAs, we managed to generate interest from online media such as Techdirt, Adweek and Huffington Post. Some of the key stories included our revelations on Roosh V, Idea Buyer, Qnet , Tai Lopez ,Amira Nature Food, Grant Cardone and more. We also shared unpublished data and information with 3 different law agencies who looked into this scam.
And we got results. We dented this fake DMCA industry and made sure we act as deterrent to the rogue reputation firms indulged in these criminal practices. Here are some of the outcomes and changes we made possible with the help of several other citizen lawyers and agencies –

Fake Fraudulent DMCA might seem inconspicuous, until it’s you at the receiving end of this crime. This is not a prank. This is not an inconvenience. This is not random. These fake DMCA cases are calculated criminal schemes targeting very specific and rather important information/content. These hitjobs are usually against media, in order to help their client hide important information from public’s eye, all in the name of Reputation Management. Millions of dollars are spent doing this, and if no one wants to bring this topic to the fore, we will.
Our team will not constantly monitor and publish these reports on a DAILY basis without fail. And we do not plan to publish and forget. We will take constructive steps in order to expose the faces behind this scam, and to try and undo the damages. AND IF YOU INDEED PART OF THIS SCAM, WE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU GET WHAT’S COMING YOUR WAY.
