WARNING: Hello to Rimbiters - welcome. Rimbit is a scam coin.
#1
Exclamation 
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.

Weel said!
I think that from now on we should stop paying that much attention to Mark and Rimbit.
We have lost this battle and we have to move on with our own ideas; the main ideas why we are here at this forum.
I believe it will not be easy if we want to create our own coin and applications surrounding our own blockchain.
We will need motivated and techy people.
We have a lot of work to do.
Just staying in this forum for discussing about the failure of Rimbit will not help anyone of us.
We have to move forward.
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

Thanks Bob. I agree with you 100%. I posted on bitcoin talk as well. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1710402.0

Hugues you are right. Rimbit is dead, but when we are attacked we need make posts like Bob did. We don't need to spend a lot of time on that, but just enough to prevent others losing their money like we did. Regarding the Android wallet it's really not our responsibility to maintain the wallet. I will not cry any tears if the wallet is withdrawn from the Play store. I don't use it and never has. Rimbit can not be used for anything. Never could and never will. Bob pointed out the reason why.

Hugues. Yes we have a lot to do.

Thank you Bob for that great summary! And Cbreum is right, we need to explain this to potential new interested members, because we don't want anyone else to be scammed as we did... just to make it clearer, we all invested thousands of dollars for what you can get for hundreds now (if not dozens), and the only one responsible for this is Marcelo Karlsson (the creator of the project). He is also the one who banned all of us from his forum. And, don't be fooled by his wording... there is no "we"... he is alone!
