  IGG is not listening...
Posted by: Carsten - 2016-12-14, 02:37 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (10)

Seems Indiegogo is ignoring us. Mark is still sending #scam mass mail from IGG.

It's mostly to himself though. 

Since he will not apologize for his action let's again make it clear that the only person in the world who made over $10 investing in Rimbit is Marcelo Karlsson (the scammer). He made over $250.000 by making many promises that of course never came true. It was him who did it, but he is blaming the old community. That means us in here.

WARNING TO EVERYONE. DON'T BUY ANY Rimbit FROM Marcelo Karlson, Thailand.

Exclamation WARNING: Hello to Rimbiters - welcome. Rimbit is a scam coin.
Posted by: BobBobert - 2016-12-10, 10:57 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (4)

I was active in the old forum and passionate about Rimbit.  My company had produced various items to help publicise Rimbit, including flyers, business cards etc, and I was one of the most active members on social media.  We were one of only 2 or 3 companies in the world to accept Rimbit as payment for goods. 

Mark Karlsson (Cyber Hippie) has referred you here with another post about CBreum (Carsten) and Byre Straits (BS).

I want to tell you why I am here on this forum and not Mark Karlsson's.

Strangely, in the last few weeks of the old forum there was a split opinion on the best way forward.  Carsten, BS and most of the regulars there were in favour of what is called a burn.  This is where excess Rimbits would be destroyed.  I was very much against this.  I was in fact the lone voice against the burn.  We had friendly but heated discussions on this topic and I still believe that the burn was wrong at that time.  Mark Karlsson said little but I knew he was in favour of the burn too because that was a stated original aim of Rimbit right at the very start.  However he had changed his mind but not told anyone.

So why am I here?  Why have I sided with the so called rogues?  Why did I join a group who have as an aim to burn when I think it is wrong?

Because they had the best interests of the coin at heart and Mark Karlsson did not.

Mark Karlsson (Cyber Hippie) took at least $250,000 of our money (from IGG, from Patreon and from direct sales to large scale investors) and invested very little of it in Rimbit. There has been little or no development and promised projects - like the exchange that he promised in month 1 right at the start - never happened. All of our money has gone to his personal accounts and been wasted.  Now Mark Karlsson needs to feed his family and I have no problem with that.  A wage/salary is fine.  But even if he was paid $1000 a month that still leaves over $200,000 unaccounted for.

Where did it go?  Well we know about the nodes, they are cheap, there is the website, there was a failed exchange built, but nowhere near $200,000 has been spent.  Mark Karlsson refuses to divulge details so we can only assume he has scammed us and spent it on himself and his family.

However, the idea behind Rimbit is good and could have worked if Mark Karlsson had not behaved in such a shocking manner. A few of us had independently noticed that Mark Karlsson was actually inventing characters on the forum to cause dispute! I noticed a couple myself but one of the moderators, Byre Straits, spotted all the others and brought it to everyone's attention. Byre Straits prepared a document on this which is excellent and worth a read.

Mark Karlsson then created a lot of sock puppets such as Admin, who brought the forum into disrepute several times and lamrich who I had a "fun" conversation with

Personally I was against the burn at that time and I was the only one voicing that opinion. Mark Karlsson never once backed up my argument. He preferred to act through his sock puppets (which was against forum rules!). When it all started to crumble, I asked Mark Karlsson to just come out and apologise but he refused. I saw no alternative but to side with those Mark Karlsson calls the rebels and the rogues. These people, whilst mistaken about the burn, had Rimbit's best interests at heart. Mark Karlsson did not.

Mark Karlsson then invested stories about death threats and stated that he had reported "everyone" to the police. He had not reported us and we do not believe that he had received death threats. Sadly even his claims that he has terminal cancer now look like lies.  I hope he has not lied about that but it may be the case.

One of Mark Karlsson's favourite lies is that Carsten and BS are selling Rimbit back and forth to each other at rock bottom prices.  This is easily disproved in several ways. 

Firstly check the exchanges - there is little or no movement on rimbit. No one is buying or selling huge amounts.  Secondly check their wallets - you can see that they have not been doing this.

However, I do know who has been undermining Rimbit by selling it off in huge amounts at rock bottom prices. That is Mark Karlsson himself!  He is killing his own coin in his greed for cash just now.  He was selling off millions of Rimbits at prices that a while back would have only bought hundreds of Rimbit. 

So the money you handed over to Mark Karlsson  would have bought you many more Rimbit if you had only waited until his fire sale!  That is another reason why the price is so low and cannot recover.

I do not believe Rimbit can be saved.  I see no reason for Carsten or BS to fix the android problem that Mark Karlsson emailed you all about.  Why? It is throwing good money after bad.

Mark Karlsson has shown himself to be unfit to lead Rimbit to the great things we thought it once may become.

  Did he stop posting?
Posted by: Carsten - 2016-12-08, 09:41 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (6)

Since Tuesday there has been no post in his forum. No talking with himself. Is he still alive?

Regarding IGG did you guys see the updated terms? Maybe it's a reaction from the posts we made to them. I also wrote to them that they can not close their eyes when he is mass mailing and accusing us for dumping and harming Rimbit.

"So as a community, are you prepared to let Carsten Breum and Byrestraits continue their destructive ways and continue to "spit" on your Rimbit?"

  A future rogue one...
Posted by: Cell - 2016-12-06, 04:40 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (5)

SteinsMadScientist Is about to become a rogue one full time... he asked good questions in several posts. One funny one was about the "legal team" of Rimbit:

That's great to hear. What is the name of the firm? It would be great to know a bit more about them.

Mark's answer:


They are a private firm that I was introduced to, by an associate in Bangkok and since then, I have remained in contact with this firm on a business and personal relationship for over 5 years
Which leads to a dead end web site... I guess he took minutes to setup a false website just to answer this one! 

Never heard of a "private" legal firm who is so private that you can't find any of their facts anywhere. lol

  Indiegogo answer to complaint about Marks massmail
Posted by: Carsten - 2016-12-05, 01:26 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (7)

We saw in the previous mass mail from Mark he was talking about me and ByreStaits. I wrote them and said I was a victim of libel. I also asked them to stop Marks possibility to mass mail.  Sadly I got a nonsense answer:

"Hi Carsten, 

Thanks for checking in about this. We are sorry to hear that this has been your experience with this campaigner. In cases like this, Indiegogo is unable to become involved in disputes between a campaign owner and a contributor. 

Indiegogo values crowdfunding as a collaborative, community-driven endeavor. At the heart of any successful collaboration is open communication. If you believe that you have become victim of libel, it would be best to reach out to the campaigner directly to clear your name and the issue.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Trust and Safety

  His new mail from IGG
Posted by: Cell - 2016-12-05, 12:53 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (6)

Here is the essantial. I put only the part that needs to be clarified... the part about the electric car is 100% irrelevant...

We are bringing in a miner free crypto that is purely community run and when we first came up with the idea, we where told it would never work. That was 3 years ago!

Really? He said himself that Rimbit was a company and that the forum was the community... and that there were nothing between them two antities... he sure need to make his mind about that! 

So now we need more of the community to look past the negative media that is doing its hardest to suppress Rimbit and also doing its best to destroy Rimbit on Exchanges.

Hum... I see no media paying attention to Rimbit neither in a positive or negative way... and, he is the only one dumping his free Rimbit on the exchange... everybody knows that!

Its even started employing Rimbit members to act as their "shills" to discredit everything we have worked at achieving.

I don't understand that one... what is "Its"... who are those members... there are perhaps 2 members on the so call "community"???

So please support us on Patreon 

Oh yeah... here it comes the part where he ask for money...  

We want to make Crypto great again !

The only days Rimbit was great were those severals DAYS where some of us (we were perhaps 3 or 4) pushed Rimbit on the exchange to around 3 cents with very good volume. The sad part of the story is that we probably bought him new toys, because he was the only one dumping and making money... thoses 4 days that Rimbit was great... it was great for him because he was making money on the exchange and on IGG big time... and all the other years "it was great" for him because he made thousands of USD scamming us!

He is the only one who ever made money with Rimbit and that was because who he calls the Rogue ones were making all the efforts and giving him money... apart from that, Rimbit was never great, and it is 100% his choice because we were about to make it great... for the first time ever.

  Architecture for a Service with Multiple Clients using DispatcherObject
Posted by: Carsten - 2016-12-04, 07:10 PM - Forum: Uncategorized - Replies (2)

Guys....this is hardcore programming... If you are no programmer/developer you may skip this now.

I just published an article describing an architecture for having multiple clients on a service where the clients are notified on it's own thread. It's more robust for finding problems later on. I'm using the DispatcherObject for holding the threads.

  The blockchain is gonna change the world
Posted by: Carsten - 2016-12-03, 05:09 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (7)

Imagine your bank account. You live in the illusion that your money is safe in the bank and that it is yours. In reality it comes down to a record in the database owned by the bank. (A record is just a row in a database table, almost like a row in a spreadsheet) So how does the current system work? It works because you TRUST the bank and the service they provide, but in reality they could at any moment prevent you from having access to the database and therefore access to your money. So it is with the deed for your house. When you vote etc. You trust third parties! In reality they can manipulate the transaction history since it's not tamper proof and they can manipulate your account as they see fit, but we have been told again and again by the men in power that this is the system we have to trust.  What if these third parties are unnecessary? Many from the blockchain development teams believe that the blockchain can replace these third parties and so do I.

Imagine a truly decentralized banking system based on the blockchain where the blockchain validations is done by our "wallets" and the transactions are public to everyone, but they can't see the content because they don't hold the private key to unlock the information. The math and algorithms that protect your money is a derivative from what started the blockchain namely Bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto. They are based on rules and math that is icecold to bribe and best of all you don't have to trust a single third party, but instead the many "third parties" that are part of the validation. As we have seen even the smartest minds can not do a "double spend" attack on the Bitcoin blockchain even it's open source and public. No one has succeeded in such an attack. The Bitcoin blockchain has survived for 9 years now!! If we let the blockchain take over these kinds of services we have full documentation of every transaction with no possibility to manipulate the history (we can manipulate the current system today and I think it is done by the banks) and no possibility to manipulate your "account". Such a scenario scares the CEO's of the banking system since they no longer can manipulate the currency flow as they like (like today). The too expensive services of the banks can be replaced by microloan to fulfill a normal loan or the bank (if they wanna join) can lend you the money, but then it will fully transparent. Such a future will come anytime soon. It's more secure and everyone can participate in the validation process.

Halleluja and welcome to the future  Smile

Well I never for one moment thought that he would retire!  Well done Nico on being F1 champion and taking such a decision to walk away when no doubt he could earn many millions by staying on for a few years more.
