The bear has taken over the market and it is making most of the coins suffer, but there are such tokens which are booming by multifold. Bitcoiin [B2G] or “scam coin” as people refer it to, has hit the bear market riding on a bull as it notes growth over 4,000% in the past seven days.
The coin’s Initial Coin Offering took place in March 2018 and since had been lying dormant until recently, when CoinMarketCap listed it. The coin that ranked 1,330 on the CMC list as of January 13, 2019, shot up tremendously and now sits at the 67th position on the list.
At the time of press, B2G coin was valued at $0.98, with a market cap of $48.5 million. The coin registered a 24-hour trading volume of $2 million while registering a staggering growth of 4,760.25% over the past seven days. The coin reported growth of 247.16% over the past 24 hours and has fallen by only 2.45% over the past hour after soaring high.
Exrates, an exchange which has dealt with almost 60% of the token’s transaction, according to the data on CMC, is a lesser know exchange and going by the exchange’s twitter handle, has more Spanish speaking audience and is located “worldwide”. The Exchange has paired the B2G token with Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], and Tether [USDT], the stable coin. Apart from Exrates, other exchanges include DigiFinex, OOOBTC, CoinBene, and instant Bitex.
In March of 2018, the anonymous founder of the project and the esteemed ambassador of the token, actor Steven Seagal abandoned the project and left, claiming that this was the plan all along for the cryptocurrency to remain anonymous in its essence. The press release of the project read:
“As Bitcoiin goes through the conversion phase from token to mineable coin we wish to advise that Bitcoiin will join the likes of the original Bitcoin and become a truly open source. Therefore a big thank you to the Founders and to our Brand Ambassador whom we wish all the best in their future endeavors. However, from this point on Bitcoiin will function within its ecosystem and become a genuinely anonymous cryptocurrency with no individual or individuals having control over the entity!”
According to the report from CoinDesk, Seagal was made the face of this venture amidst accusations from various industry publications calling Bitcoiin a pyramid scheme or an MLM [Multi-level Marketing] company. The project has responded to these allegations saying that their pyramid-shaped commission structure of the staking and referral program would only be operational during the ICO, which is what followed.
A Redditor posted:
“What the heck is Bitcoiin and how does it rank #61 on CMC. Crypto-related websites should do a better job protecting people from scams.”
Another Twitter user who thought of this token being a rip off of Bitcoin like many others wrote:
“WARNING something called Bitcoiin (note double i) is now ranked 67 on CoinMarket Cap, and shot up 243%. London Block Exchange @LBXSocial suggests we all complain here”.

WAVES/BTC sees dramatic drop to reach 1 Satoshi on Binance exchange due to a massive sell order
Waves, the 29th largest cryptocurrency, hit lows against BTC on April 17, and users speculated that this could have been due to a massive sell order.
Waves, at press time, was trading a $2.71 with a market cap of $270 million and had a trading volume of $15 million. However, on April 17, the price of Waves hit rock bottom due to a massive sell-off similar to one that Ethereum witnessed a few years back.
As seen in the above chart, the price of Waves against BTC hit exactly 0.0000001 BTC, which amounts to 1 Satoshi. The volume for the said candle is also massive, further confirming a sell order of massive amounts. The coin has since increased by approximately 3% against Bitcoin in under 24 hours.
Crypto enthusiasts on Twitter couldn’t hold back their opinions as one user, @BitBitCrypto tweeted
“- $WAVES did not trade at 1sat, it traded at 10sat
– It is still a great project and with a huge potential
– This sell order has nothing to do with WAVES (the project)
– This trade wasn’t done on Binance web cause you can’t place this low, it was API
– I didn’t buy it at 10 sat”
Another user @BITCVIX tweeted:
