General Discussion / Michael Taggart claims to be BitShares Co-founder?
« on: August 03, 2016, 12:08:32 pm »
Hi all.

You may remember Michael Taggart aka "Michael X" as the marketing snake oil salesmen that helped pump the failed Ponzi scheme banx (aka banxshares, banx capital) the failed Lotto shares scheme (the one supposedly connected to a physical lotto that took people's money and then quit because it was too hard.)

So now Taggart and his partner Mark Lyford are targeting Steemit marks. I hope everyone here has learned enough to stay away from these guys.

Anyway, Taggart claims on his page that he is the co-founder of BitShares. I'm positive this isn't true, but couldn't find and official "team" page.

Can someone confirm that Taggart didn't co-founder BitShares? Is there an official history or founding members of BitShares? I know Daniel Larimer is generally credited for its creation, but where can I find something that proves Taggart isn't the co-founder of BitShares?

Thanks, stay safe out there.

General Discussion / Article on Banx

I attempted to contact the Bitshares team to warn them about the issues I saw with banx before I put out this article, but they either didn't get it or were too busy to reply.

In any case, I would suggest you guys do some research on these guys before you let them put out PRs linking your names together.

I don't want to argue, do what you guys want, but I felt I should at least bring it to your attention.
