Populous Scam Alert!
Don’t fall for scammers who pretend to be members of the Populous dev team!
The Populous (PPT) presale is closed. There is not going to be a token generating event (TGE) as was planned for July as all PPT tokens were sold in the presale.
Thus, at this stage, don’t buy PPT from anyone who pretends to be selling these as part of a TGE, pre-ICO or ICO. In addition, remember that the real PPT tokens will only be released from July 9th, 2017 onwards. It is best to wait until PPT is available on official exchanges.
Anyone who is telling you otherwise is either trying to scam you or trying to sell PPT IOUs to you at highly inflated prices.
Populous itself is not a scam!
Some erroneously assume that we claim Populous is a scam based on what’s posted here. Nothing could be further away from the truth. Populous itself is not a scam. We never claimed it is a scam.
