Neben BitConnect gilt OneCoin wohl als das prominenteste Beispiel eines Pyramidensystems in der Kryptowelt. Nun wurde der mutmaßliche Kopf der OneCoin-Bande, Konstantin Ignatov, in den USA festgenommen. Ihm droht für seinen mutmaßlichen Milliardenbetrug eine lange Gefängnisstrafe.

OneCoin ist ein Betrugssystem wie es im Buche steht. Bluffen, schwindeln, vermarkten und Kundengeld abzapfen gehörten hier zum Firmengrundsatz. Insgesamt soll die Bande hinter dem Scam-Coin zwischen Q4 2014 und Q3 2016 je nach Berichten zwischen 2,5 und 3,8 Milliarden US-Dollar erbeutet haben. Die gutmütigen Kunden ließen sich verschaukeln, da das Konzept hohe Rendite bei geringem Risiko versprach.

Konkret sah das Konzept vor, dass man als Marketingpartner des ‘One Network’ über eigens aufgebaute Sales-Gruppen Werbung für den Coin betreibt. Je erfolgreicher, desto mehr Rendite für den Kollaborateur. Die Renditen wurden dabei allerdings in OneCoin ausgezahlt, einer Digitalwährung, die von den Köpfen des Systems schlicht aus dem Nichts erzeugt wurde.

So kontrollierten die Drahtzieher ihre eigene Rendite und fuhren Milliardengewinne ein. Gewaschen wurde das Geld ganz klassisch in Off-Shore Banken, wie den Cayman Islands.

Kopf der Bande wurde gefasst

Einem Bericht des US-Justizministeriums des Bundesstaates New York zufolge, wurde Konstantin Ignatov am 6. März am Internationalen Flughafen in Los Angeles festgenommen. Er habe sich gerade auf seiner Rückreise aus Europa befunden, so heißt es. Zusammen mit seiner Schwester Ruja Ignatova, soll der mutmaßliche Betrüger das Netzwerk angeführt haben. Seine Schwester soll OneCoin 2014 in Rumänien gegründet haben und wird aktuell mit internationalem Haftbefehl gesucht. Die Betrügerin ist mit falschem Namen und gefälschten Dokumenten abgetaucht.

Ruja Ignatova

Zwar gilt aktuell noch die Unschuldsvermutung, die Beweislast sei allerdings erdrückend, heißt es aus dem Ministerium.

Während dem 33-Jährigen Konstantin Ignatov 20 Jahre Gefängnis wegen Telekommunikationsbetrug drohen, habe seine 38-jährige Schwester wegen Telekommunikationsbetrugs, Verschwörung zu Telekommunikationsbetrug und Verschwörung von Geldwäsche mit einer dreimal so langen Strafe zu rechnen. Hinzu kommt eine Anklage wegen Wertpapierbetrugs, die ihr weitere fünf Jahre hinter Gittern einbringen könnte.

Indes ist OneCoins Webseite weiterhin online.

  1. Warum Kopieren alle und keiner ist in der Lage die Wahrheit zu schreiben. Bis heute musste jeder Staat und Staatsanwalt alle Vorwürfe zurückweißen. Auch der Fahl Konstantin ist eine reine Vermutung. Official OneCoin statement regarding publications concerning the arrest of Mr. Konstantin
    Ignatov on US territory
    OneCoin and its affiliates would like to address the recent media reports regarding the arrest of
    Konstantin Ignatov in the United States of America.
    We can confirm that Mr. Ignatov is currently in the United States. Based on the information that
    has been made public by the U.S. authorities, we understand that they are investigating allegations
    of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Mr. Ignatov has not been formally charged with a crime and
    is entitled to a presumption of innocence. If he is charged, he will have the opportunity to challenge
    the case before a U.S. court of law.
    Transparency is one of the core values of OneCoin and we stand firmly behind this belief. We have
    always stated our willingness to be open with regulators and the media, and request the same
    courtesy. We therefore strongly urge the press to refrain from speculation and judgment on the
    U.S. investigation until more information becomes available.

    ZU den Angaben wir haben keine Kryptowährung oder Blockchain ist wieder eine reine Vermutung und falsch Ausgabe.

    Mittlerweile finden wieder Veranstaltungen in Deutschland statt.
    Official OneCoin Statement
    referring to the State of Proceedings of the OneCoin Proceedings;
    Additionally Current Aspects
    on the Proceedings of the Public Prosecutor’s Office
    Nürnberg-Fürth -508 Js 725/16 – Order for Withdrawal of Prosecution Dated 14.06.2018
    I. Withdrawal of Prosecution in an Important Pilot Process: No “Unfair
    Competition“ Conducted by OneCoin and its IMAs
    Several times, different public prosecutor’s offices have made allegations with
    reference to the OneCoin business model and the activities of its IMAs based on the
    “unfair competition” accusation. This allegation is no longer and definitely untenable with effects for the legal
    evaluation throughout Germany. Under file reference Az. 505 Js 725/16, the Public Prosecutor’s Office
    Nürnberg-Fürth – based on an order for withdrawal of prosecution dated 14.06.2018
    – has decided to stop the proceedings against an IMA of the OneCoin companies
    following § 170 Abs. 2 StPO [Section 170 (2) of the German Code of Criminal
    Procedure], an advantageous norm for the accused concerning the stopping the
    proceedings. To this extent, the decision is of exemplary nature under criminal
    procedure. This happened after more than two years of careful, burdensome and
    intensive investigations. Without even having a proof of a trace of conduct having
    criminal character, the proceedings had to be stopped. Based on this decision of fundamental significance, this accusation, earlier expressed
    by several German public prosecutor’s offices, concerning the violation of the subject
    regulation of § 16 UWG [Section 16 of the German Law Against Unfair Competition]
    by the OneCoin business model and the OneCoin companies, has been refuted to the
    fullest extent. Numerous other decisions to stop the proceedings were taken in the preceding
    months. The now decided withdrawal of the proceedings was made in the context of a very
    significant procedure, where – based on a judicial order – a criminal search was carried
    out, as well. We therefore strive to drive forward this fundamental clarification in all proceedings
    for attaining the necessary legal certainty.
    OneCoin and the accused in the proceedings are now exploring the possibility of
    damage actions against the complainants. The order for withdrawal of prosecution itself informs about the possibility of
    compensation for unfairly suffered prosecutions in accordance with the law that
    would be directed against the state. Thus, the accusation of a pyramid scheme of whatever nature or of unfair
    competition would no longer be sustainable – not even rudimentarily. II. Concerning the Further Procedures, Particularly: The Existence of the
    Blockchain
    OneCoin vehemently opposes the repeatedly raised allegation on the non-existence of
    the blockchain and of irregularities in the most forthright terms. Again and again, interested parties, competitors and even criminal prosecution authorities made empty
    accusations and speculations in this context. One central allegation of the anonymous
    authors of the 50-page pamphlet was that OneCoin does not have a blockchain but
    would rather simulate it. Based on considerable effort comprising amongst others private opinions within the
    framework of the criminal proceeding, the criminal prosecution authorities tried to
    corroborate these doubts and speculations. Even after two year investigations
    underway, this happened without bringing any success. Backed by a complex IT opinion that was commissioned by the public prosecutor’s
    office and realized in two subsequent parts over many months, added by an
    “Amendment” in 2018 these doubts were fully refuted. The “securing of the
    blockchain” resulted in the fact that the “lists of blocks” are in all respects “complete”, the “time sequence” is plausible, the overall number of the transactions is consistent
    and the values of the incoming transactions are logical, as well. In detail, the opinion
    states that the data “collected and secured” were subject to “a plausibility check”. Amongst others, the following results were found: “The list of blocks is complete. The hash of the succession block… matches the hash of the actual succession block in
    the data base. Analogously, this also applies to the hash of the previous block that
    matches the hash of the actual previous block in the data base. The time sequence of
    the blocks is logical, meaning that the time stamp of a block having the higher block
    height follows after the time stamp of each block having the lower block height.” Furthermore, the opinion determines” “The overall number of transactions listed in
    the table containing the blocks matches the actual, overall number of transactions
    listed in the table containing the transactions”; and: To every incoming transaction
    with an address a matching exit in the previous transaction can be allocated. Furthermore, the values of the transaction receipts are regarded to be plausible. This, again, confirms the blockchain characteristics regarding all features. OneCoin has
    been and remains convinced that the central system is superior under technical and
    security aspects.
    OneCoin feels confident, that the revolution of the payment systems in the financial
    sector shall also be of importance for the freedom of each individual. It is therefore
    worth further continuing the ground-breaking idea of the crypto currency as being a
    benefit to the financial sector. This financial revolution is the vision of OneCoin. For
    a long time, the OneCoin-companies have been co-operating with the investigating
    authorities, providing detailed comments and doing everything legally possible to
    dispel the unfounded, false accusations. The associated companies and national financial service providers are also doing
    everything legally possible for explaining as transparent as possible the complete
    legal conformity of its actions, entire business model and the adherence to all
    compliance rules. OneCoin is continuing to actively pursue – now even more determined – the aim of
    establishing the first transparent, global crypto currency for everybody. It is about the
    vision of unlimited and reliable financial transactions – everywhere and for everybody. Moreover, OneCoin follows the concept of “One Ecosystem” and social projects for
    the environment and society (https://www.onecoin.eu/de/one-ecosystem), but in
    particular with reference to financial retraining and innovation (www.onecoin.eu). The responsibility for the environment and the dissemination of knowledge about
    financial correlations is and remains a central concern of OneCoin and the philosophy
    of the OneCoin companies. Kind regards, OneCoin Legal Department
