Estimated Loss: 40,000+ BTC (Around 12$ Million)
Well, after posting yesterday about the withdrawal issues its pretty much confirmed now, the admins of Evolution marketplace, the markets thats being regarded as the biggest market currently have been exit scamming and unless proven otherwise, are now gone with everyone’s funds in what appears to be the biggest exist scams in the darknet history since the sheep marketplace scam. There is now to confirm at this time how much money was lost in the process (some unverified claims say around 12$ million) but its pretty safe to assume its many millions of dollars in BTC.
The market is now down and Evolution Staff member NSWGreat posted this on Reddit:
I hate to the bearer of bad news, but I’ve been suspicious the past few days with withdrawals not working and admins usually are more forth coming in explaining to me why they’re slow but they weren’t this time. Just kept giving me time-frames
I have admin access to see parts of the back end, the admins are preparing to exit scam with all the funds. Not a single withdrawal has gone through in almost a week. Automatic withdrawals has been disabled which is only doing on rare occasions
I am so sorry, but Verto and Kimble have fucked us all. I have over $20,000 in escrow myself from sales.
I can’t fucking believe it, absolute scum. I am giving this warning to you all as soon as I possibly could of.
Confronted Kimble and Verto about it, they confirmed it and they’re doing it right now..
EDIT: Servers have gone down, including back up server for staff. I’m sorry for everyone’s loses, I’m gutted and speechless. I feel so betrayed.
We will be following and updating as we have new information, but the experience with market exist scams have thought us that there isn’t much to expect, the only thing we can be sure of at this time is that Agora marketplace is about to experience a MASSIVE influx of users.
