    MMM Global Republic of Bitcoin: Crypto's Next Scandal?

    October 17th, 2015 by William

    Recently I came across a scam of alarming proportions. It is called “MMM Global Republic of Bitcoin.” Those who follow Ponzi schemes will immediately recognize the name MMM. In the 1990s, Russian fraudster Sergey Mavrodi ran one of Russia’s largest Ponzi schemes with the same name. Savvy marketing and promises of 1000%+ returns suckered tens of thousands of people into investing their savings in Mavrodi’s scheme. By 1994, when MMM’s offices were closed due to tax evasion, Mavrodi owed his investors beween 100 billion and 3 trillion rubles (between tens of millions and billions of dollars). Mavrodi spent a few years in jail, but by 2011, he was responsible for at least two other pyramid schemes.

    Now Mavrodi is back in business, bigger and badder than ever. This time he is using Bitcoin.

    Meet the Taco Plebs - Being Optimistic About The Future Of Bitcoin with Josef Tětek

    August 30th, 2021 by BTCMedia

    Austrian economics is a very common topic of discussion and study within the bitcoin community. Being the base economic theory upon which we find bitcoin resting, it makes sense that understanding this would be a primary lead for someone to get into bitcoin. Josef Tětek, one of our regular contributors here at Bitcoin Magazine, is an example of this.

    Tětek has written some fantastic articles for us, including “Your Financial Data Is Not Private, Bitcoin Can Fix That,” “Here’s W...

    SAFE Crossroads #18 SAFE Network School, Class One

    September 30th, 2015 by fergish

    In this Episode

    We're happy to announce the opening of the Simpleton's School of the SAFE Network.

    Since the SAFE Network is being built on a very different combination of fundamentals than has ever been used before and because it is so intricate, it's not possible to just wade in and get a full picture of it without some work. This is especially true because the network is still in development and so can't be used and learned by experience, either.

    Therefore, the effort of this ...
