BlockBroker billed itself as an Australia-based brokerage platform aimed at providing a safe-haven in the frightening sea of scam ICOs. The group’s own ICO managed to bring in around $3million USD.
In an act of hilariously tragic irony, the group has deleted most of their digital footprint as of the time of this publication.
The unraveling began when community members called attention to the fact that the photo which purported to represent BlockBroker CEO “John Jacobs” was identical to that of a Ukranian photographer of a different name. Additionally, Mr. Jacobs LinkedIn profile was suspiciously scant.
ICO Bench rated Block Broker a 4.1 out of 5.
TrackICO.io gave the project a 5 out of 5 rating.
ICO Marks also rated Block Broker positively, with an 8.7 out of 10 rating.
Remember, if you decide to take on the risk of investing in an ICO, always do your due diligence. Investigate the team and their claims; protect yourself.
