Info about scamcoins?
« on: April 29, 2020, 02:35:24 am »
recently it is frequently reported that some cheaters ask the fooled to deposit BTC in GDEX and then buy the scam token with GDEX.BTC.

seems mainly happened in Russia?

GDEX are considering to take measures like whitelist for this to protect the interest of BTS users.

however we have little info about the scamcoins, hope the community can provide relevant info.

It is not known - scammers from Russia or not.
But at the urges of the victims they write in English.

Recent reports was about WAZIRX asset.

I think it's good idea to implement different creation fee for top-level assets. Say, GATEWAY assets costs high fee, while further assets in same namespace (GATEWAY.XXX) costs much less. So, each new scamcoin requires high fee and scammer can't reuse it's namespace, while legit gateway may have lots of assets cheap.

Sounds like a good idea. It is a bit difficult to update current code to implement this idea though.

GDEX has added ZILLIQA, WAZIRX and CONTETOS to market blacklist of GDEX.BTC.

if necessary, later will do same to GDEX.ETH, GDEX.USDT and GDEX.EOS.
if necessary, later will apply market whitelist  to these GDEX. assets.

It will be nice if the HONEST assets can be whitelisted however this is commendable
