Nimiq raised 12 million dollars to deliver the next generation Browser-Based Blockchain. Everything went wrong with this ICO. The ICO investors lost over -97% of their ICO investments. Robin Linus the founder of the project even posted that the ICO investors lost so much money https://www.reddit.com/r/Nimiq/comments/acsi27/future_of_nimiq/. Their founder was kicked from the project due to drug abuse from the project, while they were lying for over 8 months that Robin was still part of the team doing research rejecting the fact that Robin was kicked out and started to have “a severe drug addiction”. Recently Robin Linus posted on Reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/Nimiq/comments/ado73k/future_of_nimiq/ that the project team members took control over the project ICO funds. They spent 1.1 million dollars to buy a mansion in Costa Rica, they wash the project money through “generous bonuses” and they are no longer interested in the project at all. They just want to burn all the ICO money and they are no interested in the future of the project. The network infrastructure costs more than $50,000 per month due to the fact they need to host seed nodes. They pre-mined 2.5% of the network to donate to a charity foundation ImpactX, but this foundation doesn’t exist and the funds as still owned by them. They ban everybody who is asking them about their funds or their project status on telegram, discord, and Reddit instantly. Multiple bit-coin talk members started to explain the shady operations behind the project and the fact that due to their burning rate the project will become bankrupt and the project will become dead in just a couple of months.
