Vertcoin (VTC)  is a cryptocurrency that was created in 2014 and is branded as “the people’s coin” by the community.

What is Regalcoin? Another Crypto Ponzi Scheme

Back when I originally wrote this in October 2017, Regalcoin was a BitConnect copycat (i.e. a clone) which was getting lots of attention.

That’s mainly because it promised returns of up to 45% per month, had a lucrative affiliate program which incentivised cryptocurrency YouTubers to shill it, and was promoted as a way to get in on the ground floor with something just like BitConnect (which had seen a massive increase in coin valuation over the course of 2017).

It went from a high of over $70 per coin in October 2017 to just $0.0011 in 2020.

In this post, I outline what Regalcoin was all about and the warning signs which indicated it was a Ponzi scheme – just like BitConnect.
