Bitconnect News

Now defunct, Bitconnect operated as a platform that advertised significant profits in tandem with lending activities around Bitcoin and the Bitconnect coin, BCC. 

A number of people advocated for the project through various channels, such as social media, receiving affiliate rewards. The project, however, closed in January 2018, taking off with many users’ funds. Bitconnect’s price dropped in value, from hundreds of dollars to nearly zero. During Bitconnect’s active time on the market, multiple regulatory authorities demanded the outfit halt its operation. The Bitconnect scam has been referred to as a Ponzi scheme, and a number of legal developments surfaced following the project’s demise.
