Anyone who resteem this article will be bribed with 10K MORTY$. In order to receive them you will need to be an EOS account holder. Just leave a comment with "Resteemed" and your EOS account in the comment section of this same article.

For those who do not have time to read this entire article:

  • The pre-sale period of our SPHERE token will last 1 week and there will be a 20% discount on its purchase.
  • The price in the pre-sale will be 1 SPHERE=1 STEEM, or the equivalent in other currencies.
  • We will accept more methods of payment for the service offered by our token. both in recognized cryptocurrencies (EOS, ETH, TRX, LTC, BTC, BYTES), tokens of the same Steem Engine ecosystem (ENG, PAL, CCC and NEOXAG) and in tokens of some EOS dapps (BOID and KARMA). We will also accept delegations in exchange of tokens, but after the pre-sale, not during it.
  • After the pre-sale, we'll proceed to make an airdrop of 1M tokens to many people and many projects, but we'll favore much more the users who possess tokens derived from the pre-sale, multiplying per 20 the amount they purchased plus the amount of airdrop tokens that already corresponded to them even if they had not bought.
  • Every token holder is entitled to a daily upvote for life.
  • The percentage of upvote will depend on the number of tokens they hold, with the upvote being greater the greater the amount.
  • The 35% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will be accumulated in a cumulative jackpot to be annually distributed among all the token holders, in proportion to their actual holding.
  • The 10% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will be accumulated in a fund for donations , to be annually sent to different charities or NGOs, by choice of our investors.
  • A 5% of Initial Supply and then after of Annual Inflation goes to a raffle for our token holders (holding a minimum of 2,500 SPHERE), being the raffle pot of each month, that 5% divided by 12 (4,166 Sphere/raffle/month).
  • Our token is stakable and a 30% of Annual Inflation goes to gratify our active token holders (as annual passive income) that have their tokens staked. This passive income will be also proportional to their staked token holding at the end of the year and only available for those investors who have maintained any amount of tokens (not one specifically) during the entire year.


About Us

   We are a group of entrepreneurs, with more than three years of experience, in the management and exploitation of the extensive resources that various blockchains provide us. In the same way, we consider ourselves one of the many standard-bearers, of the propagation towards people outside this whole world, of the advantages offered by cryptocurrencies, blockchains and all their overwhelming technology, as opposed to traditional systems imposed. In short, we could say that our main motivation has always been and will be to help others. For this, we try to provide real and innovative solutions in which everyone benefits and, especially, our investors. That's why we've created our new project: The Circle.


About Project

   Every project needs investors, in one way or another. We start by focusing on investors from STEEM's increasingly sophisticated blockchain and we begin facilitating those investments in the form of STEEM, SBD or STEEM delegations. Our purpose is to expand, through marketing campaigns on other platforms, to attract new investors who see the advantages of STEEM blockchain, STEEM Engine, Steemit platform, our project and its token. We will accept more methods of payment for the service offered by our token both in recognized cryptocurrencies (EOS, ETH, TRX, LTC, BTC., BYTES..), tokens of the same Steem Engine ecosystem (ENG, PAL, CCC and NEOXAG) and in tokens of some EOS dapps (BOID and KARMA).


Our project works as follows:

  • Someone holds our token, both because he bought it and because it was given through a delegation.
  • Every investor is entitled to a daily upvote for life.
  • The percentage of upvote will depend on the number of tokens they hold, with the upvote being greater the greater the amount. This upvoting percentage will be directly associated with the total number of tokens issued that year.
  • The 35% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will be accumulated in a cumulative jackpot to be annually distributed among all the token holders, in proportion to their actual holding.
  • The 10% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will be accumulated in a fund for donations, to be annually sent to different charities or NGOs, by choice of our investors.
  • The last 55% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will go to the project account, to be able to do Power Up and grant, each time, higher votes to our investors.
  • The Top 10 holders will be distinguished members and they'll be able to participate in project orientation, formulate proposals and, probably, to receive different kind of gifts in the future.


   Investing in our token it's just one way to diversify your STEEM, providing you a series of advantages, both for the investor himself and for the rest of the community. That said, there will be many people and many projects that will enjoy an airdrop of our token and, in addition, there will be discounts for its pre-sale purchase during a week.


   The Circle tries to be a round solution; a round business for everyone.


About Token

   The name of our token is SPHERE and it's the 3D representation of our project's logo since it's thanks to it that our purposes can be carried out in real life, around the world. It's mainly a symbolic means through which we are able to provide our services and help people.


   Technical characteristics:

  • Maximum Supply - 100M SPHERE
  • Initial Supply - 10M SPHERE
  • Initial Annual Inflation - 10% (1M SPHERE)
  • Annual passive income - Stakable


  • There will be a token pre-sale for a week (before issuing the first token) with a 20% discount for every Steemit account, so you will get 1 FREE SPHERE for every 4 SPHERE purchases.
  • The price in the pre-sale will be 1 SPHERE=1 STEEM, or the equivalent in other currencies.
  • Immediately after the pre-sale period ends, we'll issue the first tokens and we'll proceed to make an airdrop of 640K tokens, favoring much more the users who possess tokens derived from the pre-sale, multiplying per 20 the amount they purchased plus the amount of airdrop tokens that already corresponded to them even if they had not bought.

(In case that this million tokens airdropped would not give enough to distribute to all the people, given the high number of purchases, we would dedicate more tokens to this initial airdrop.)

  • A 10% of the Initial Supply will go to the token pre-sale. The tokens that are not sold in the pre-sale will be put into circulation in the market.
  • A 6.4% of the Initial Supply will go to an airdrop for pre-sale purchasers, friendly projects, some witnesses and many other users.
  • A 12% of the Initial Supply will go to the project The Circle (holding the tokens in a different account than the @the.circle).
  • A 12% of the Initial Supply will go to its CEO (holding the tokens in a different account), and his team members or collaborators (also holding these tokens in other accounts than their main ones).
  • The initial remaining 58.6% will be put on sale on the market.
  • A 1% of Initial Supply and then after a 10% of Annual Inflation goes to a raffle for our token holders (holding a minimum of 2,500 Sphere), being the raffle pot of each month, that 5% divided by 12 (4,166 Sphere/raffle/month)
  • A 15% of Annual Inflation goes to cover diverse expenses, such as salaries of the people who perform the administrative tasks, advisors, graphic designers, moderators, web assistance, improvement of the services to be provided or any type of unforeseen, etc..
  • A 30% of Annual Inflation goes to gratify our active token holders (as annual passive income) that have their tokens staked. This passive income will be also proportional to their staked token holding at the end of the year and only available for those investors who have maintained any amount of tokens (not one specifically) during the entire year.

(In the hypothetical case that investors with staked tokens and such stake amounts were low, they passive income will be proportionally distributed to their stake, and the remainder of that annual 30% will be divided at 50% and converted to STEEM: 25% will go for the annual cumulative jackpot and the another 25% destined to the fund for donations.)


   As we have said before, we accept also delegations. These will not be accepted as payment in the pre-sale but after it. The initial SteemPower/SPHR ratio will be as follows: 1SP delegated - 0.6 SPHR So, for example, we have that someone that delegates 5,000SP will receive 3,000SPHR. (These ratios may fluctuate over time due to market supply and demand.) The SPHR given to the delegators will be divided in 12 parts, one for each month of the year. Following the previous example: Someone who delegates 5,000 SP will receive 250 SPHR per month (3,000SPHR/12 months). This is to prevent someone who delegates very large amounts of SteemPower, received the entire amount of Sphere at once and then withdraws his delegation in a week. We know that the majority of Steemit users would not do this, but prevention is better than cure. For legal purposes, in terms of participation and enjoyment of their privileges, the delegators will count as if they had their full amount of SPHR. It means that, even they could earn 250 SPHR per month, as their full amount is 3,000 SPHR, they will be allowed to participate in the raffles (wich requires a minimum amount of 2,500 SPHR to participate), for example. It is just a mere preventive formality, for us as an internal work, which will not affect all the rights of the delegator. As the delegators will enjoy the same advantages as those who buy the token, and we know that the money of those who buy the token there are certain percentages that are destined to cumulative jackpot and fund for donations it would be unfair for buyers that delegators do not pay a small fee for enjoying the same. This tax for delegators will be only a 5% of the monthly amount they'll receive (in the previous case of 250 SPHR monthly amount the tax would be 12.5SPHR), which will be converted to STEEM and sent to cumulative jackpot and fund for donations.


About Voting Percentage

   As we previously said, this percentage will depend on the number of tokens the user holds, with the upvote being greater the greater the amount. This upvoting percentage will be directly associated with the total number of tokens issued that year. In the first stage of the project there will be 10M tokens in total, therefore, the formula will be taken by dividing the tokens that the user has by 10M tokens and then multiplying the result by 10,000. Let's show an example:

  • Jimmy has 8,000SPHR; if we divide that amount by 10M, the result will be 0.0008 and now we multiply by 10,000 so, we have a result of 8. That will be the voting percentage of Jimmy: an 8%.

   We emphasize that these voting percentages are considered in the event that our project was successful and there were many users to vote daily. Let's say we prefer to start being cautious with the voting percentages. The same way we say, that in other cases that could occur, the voting percentages could go up just a couple of weeks after pre-sale and the airdrop finishes. That way we could determine closely the amount of users interested in the benefits of our project and set a more accurate voting percentage for everyone.


About Staking

   As we previously said, a 30% of Annual Inflation goes to gratify our active token holders (as annual passive income) that have their tokens staked. This passive income will be also proportional to their staked token holding at the end of the year and only available for those investors who have maintained any amount of tokens (not one specifically) during the entire year. (In the hypothetical case that investors with staked tokens and such stake amounts were low, they passive income will be proportionally distributed to their stake, and the remainder of that annual 30% will be divided at 50% and converted to STEEM: 25% will go for the annual cumulative jackpot and the another 25% destined to the fund for donations.)

   This means that, at least the first year of project life, there will be 300,000 tokens to proportional be distributed at the end of a year, for those who end that year with any amount staked.


About Cumulative Jackpot

   A 35% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will accumulate here, to be later distributed among all the token holders, in proportion to their actual holding.

   To be eligible to obtain this distribution of funds, the investor must be in possession of at least 8,000SPHERE before the end of the year.

(The amount needed to be eligible to obtain the distribution could change depending if the needs of the project or the market so they consider it.)

(The project account, will not enjoy this annual distribution of funds.)

(The CEO and his team members will only participate with the tokens derived from what they bought in the pre-sale and those derived from the Initial Airdrop that is made to the whole people chosen to receive it. In other words, for example, the CEO may have 1 million tokens in another account, but he will occupy the position of investor and the proportional distribution of the cumulative jackpot, based on what he bought or got initially airdropped, like any other investor. In this way, the distribution of the cumulative jackpot will be truly fair and proportional for every investor.)


About Fund For Donations

   A 10% of the profits generated with the purchase of tokens and the delegations taxes, will accumulate here, to be later sent to different charities or NGOs, by choice of our investors.


About Charities And NGOs

   The list will be lengthened as more of our investing members contribute their choices. The list will always be in view of each of the investing members, who will have a year to grant their vote to the one of their choice. The votes will be casted through adding reactions, advising to vote only for one of them, the one you prefer. The charitable foundation or NGO selected will be the one with the most reactions from different users. Once we distribute the funds after a year, all the previous reactions will be removed to start from scratch in the new year.

   Of course, you can directly go through the Steem Engine market and buy/sell them by yourselves, once they're issued after the pre-sale period.



All these witnesses, projects and users will be airdopped after the pre-sale, even if they don't buy any token.

What exactly is the service you're providing? Looking for investors in what exactly? This looks like a @dcommerce style circle jerk scam. Never read such a load of tosh in my life.

We are a group of entrepreneurs, with more than three years of experience, _in the management and exploitation of the extensive resources that various blockchains

Exploitation......circle jerk. NO PRODUCT. NO SERVICE. NO VALUE. NO NAMED BUSINESS OR INVESTMENT SUCCESSES. NO NAMES OF STEEMIANS BEHIND THIS. NO TRANSPARENCY

NO INVESTMENT

In other words. Buy my worthless token and I will give you more worthless tokens and an upvote. Quality.

Why don't you fund this from your EOS community ?

Also. THESE TOKENS ...where are they? Steem engine ? Erc 20? Lol nooo....reading again you fail to mention this important point. You want people to send you Steem for what tokens, where ?

WHO IS THIS MYSTERIOUS CEO ?

I Call this out as 100% scam

Hi there, @nathen007.

What exactly is the service you're providing? Looking for investors in what exactly?

NO PRODUCT. NO SERVICE. NO VALUE.

I think the product we're offering it's very clear: a token wich offers much more than a daily upvote, wich thing seems to be not enough to you. That's why, for demanding customers like you, that we've gave to our token more functionalities.
"The project The Circle creates its SPHR token for providing a series of advantages, both for the investor himself holding them and for the rest of the community:
-Daily upvotes for life.
-Cumulative jackpot to distribute annually among our investors
-Fund for donations to charities or NGOs
-Free monthly raffles to our investors.
-Annual passive income, since our token is stakable."

Also. THESE TOKENS ...where are they? Steem engine ?

The SPHERE tokens are built in the Steem Engine, of course. You can check it by yourself if you're pleased.

NO NAMED BUSINESS OR INVESTMENT SUCCESSES. NO NAMES OF STEEMIANS BEHIND THIS. NO TRANSPARENCY. WHO IS THIS MYSTERIOUS CEO?

The CEO behind this project is @dresden (Rep69) and we've already created a very different but already successful model of project called The Talent Club.

I Call this out as 100% scam

Well, you're 100% wrong and I'm sorry that you have not understood the project or its great benefits, as well as the ways you use to express yourself, that are typical of someone angry for not receiving airdropped tokens or of someone hired to speak ill of a particular project.

Have a nice day.
Regards.

Nice little attempt at a logical fallacy at the end. Anyway...

It's still a scam, there is still no actual product and it's still a scammy circle jerk which ever way you paint it.

So, @dresden is the CEO of what ? Dreamworld? Who else on this extensive team with 3 years of experience ?

No mention in the post of content curation, just some pie in the sky numbers all for the sale of a daily upvote which most 'investors' won't see the benefit of as it will be less than 0.02stu and hence lost .What happens if someone doesn't play daily?

Where is this wonderful company and a website?

Nothing, just talked up dreamland BS where only you will earn. You can't even be bothered (or have the money to) set up a SCOT for this crap!

Seriously. Simple paid for circle jerk dressed up to try and fool people into thinking it's a real business ! Just the absolute shit that brings this Blockchain down.
Where is the link to 'the talent club' please ?

PS On your list is another of my accounts making your closing statement incorrect as well as a logical fallacy ;-)

I found the talent club'. Same MLM style circle jerk as this but without tokens . Absolute crap.

Loading...

Yes I see the token on SE but not for sale . So your presale is for people to send you 1 Steem per token on advance before you make them generally available and airdrop to loads of others who hasn't bought any this making the price drop to nothing . You are funny!

Posted using Partiko Android

They're not for sale until the pre-sale period ends. It's a way to have some organization in all this and allow time for people to know the product.
After that, I'll issue the first tokens on the market, sending airdrops, etc.

So your presale is for people to send you 1 Steem per token on advance

The pre-sale is to gather funds, but the pre-sale period has its advantages for those who buy in it, like a 20% discount and a special airdrop that multiplies per 20 the quantity they bought in said period.

airdrop to loads of others who hasn't bought any this making the price drop to nothing

Whatever they'll do with their loads of tokens it's their own business. If the price lower by their sells, there will be time to raise it up buying the dip.

I think this is more simple than you wanna make it.

The pre-sale is to gather funds,

Gather funds for what ? You have no product, service or business of any kind....oh yes, I forgot, circle jerking content from anyone who pays you regardless of what it is or who it is.

Total scam and trash . Everyone who buys a token at 1 Steem will lose money.

You will make money. It's a scam 100% and it makes the Blockchain look scammy .

Posted using Partiko Android

Gather funds for what ? You have no product, service or business of any kind....

I repeat it to you. Gather funds to:
-Be able to give better and higher upvotes to our investors.
-Be able to have a higher cumulative jackpot so, our investors, will receive more money annually.
-Be able to have a higher fund for donations so, we can donate higher amounts to charities or NGOs annually.

Everyone who buys a token at 1 Steem will lose money.

Not so fast and be so sure of that, because as we previously said, buying a token a 0,32$, but having a 20% discount plus an extra airdrop that multiplies the quantity bought per 20, could give even benefits to those who bought in the pre-sale.
Of course, noone can know that for real. Nor me, nor us, nor any big project previously launched.
That's what has the free market.

You will make money

Not my intention. My intention is to provide the series of services I previously repeated to you.

It's a scam 100%

It seems like you don't know what a scam is, when you compare us with a scam.
You probably, have also a little idea about blockchains.

I have a lot of experience of blockchains, scams and business. This is an MLM, Ponzi, SCAM....circlejerk, it is NOT a business. Simply a blockchain equivalent of a boiler-room scam.

I think it's a good opportunity to receive better benefits in the block chain. Carrying out a project requires months of preparation and is well prepared. Thank you very much for the clear and accurate information.
Soon I will buy my chips.

Thank you very much @marpa for your words and your trust.
I think it's easy to understand all what we're offering and the good intentions behind.
Maybe just a little bit of jealous people behind all this harassment just because they're not going to receive the airdrop.

Unknown account, no trusted names involved, convoluted plan....

Looks like a job for @dmacs

Proceed with extreme caution everyone!

Hi there @dmacs

Unknown account

The account is unknown because is a new account. How can it be otherwise?

no trusted names involved

Yes, there are: @dresden (Rep. 69) as CEO and several more people behind that also helped me to carry on with The Talent Club.

convoluted plan

Well, my project is complex but that doesn't mean it's bad. We're just trying to give a lot of solutions with a single tool: our project The Circle.

Greetings.

In case you missed, here's a link to my review of this project:

Beware of Another Worthless Token on SE Being Sold to Steemians

Thanks for posting here the link @xyzashu
We're going to read it right now and comment it about, of course.

Already commented @xyzashu.
https://steemit.com/steemleo/@the.circle/re-xyzashu-pvt41b
You would have some haters supporting your bad and undeserved review to us, but as I let you know, you were wrong about almost everything.
I think you're already an adult person, do you? So adults should think twice the things they do before doing them, moreover if there is harming over other people, without any rights to do it.

Hey! I'm the child of the God!
If I'm wrong and my review is childish then please don't bother to reply it.
Thank you for reminding me who I'm!

Gran proyecto. Algunos todavía no entienden que el futuro de Steem y Steemit está en Steemengine, y el token Sphere va a ser uno de los más importantes.
Enhorabuena.
Reestem

Gracias por tus palabras, Jorge.
Yo creo que esto es simplemente gente que no quiere entender, bien porque están enfadados por no recibir el token o bien por estar contratados por alguien en la sobra para ponernos mala reputación.
Ya sabes....

Creative Coin has zero knowledge about this project outside of this post, nor do we endorse this. Use at your own risk.

Thanks for the advice.

I would want to add @notcreative that we just used the graphics of all the payment methods we're offering, the CCC's included.
The same way we're just using the tags of Creative Coin, Neoxian and Palnet to autopost this article in those side chains.
Thank you anyways but I do prefer no more misunderstandings.

Bribes welcome at:

DairyIsScary

BTW, what does it take to include one's name in your airdrop list?

Hi there, @xyzashu
We did mention the people who gonna receive their tokens, since we gonna do the airdrop manually, and we want them to be aware that they'll receive the tokens directly in their Steem Engine wallets after a week, not in a claiming way, like for example @minnowsupport did with its PAL token.
Also, is a way to let them know that they already have a number of advantages provided for free, if they hold the token and enjoy the services provided.
Thanks for your question.
Greetings.

Well, I was actually asking about the criteria you laid to select and offer Airdrop to these limited accounts. What was the basis to choose these accounts?

TIA!

They're just arse licking top accounts to add legitimacy and because they probably have better things to do than ditch the crap token as soon as they get it.
Give them away to 90% of the rest of the community and they would do the sensible thing of selling immediately . They can't afford that to happen because they are trying to get some people to pay 1steem per share!

Couldn't find any Asians on their list . Would be interesting to understand their criteria!

@nathen007 It is our project and we decide who gets the airdrop, when and how we do that airdrop.
We keep on thinking that 1 STEEM is not an expensive prize for the advantages we're giving for buying it during the pre-sale.
Many other projects did the same with their tokens, at the same ratio, and the investor are free to decide if they want to invest or not, or if they think they'll lose money or not.
If everyone was thinking like you do, no project would get any investor just for being afraid of what will happen next.
Time ago I decided to stop thinking about money and thinking about the good intentions and focuses of the project.
Easy as that.

@nathen007 It is our project and we decide who gets the airdrop, when and how we do that airdrop.

Ah! C'mon @the.circle, the 69 Rep.CEO, «The Talent Club» y la madre que los parió!!!...

¡I'm convinced! So.....

But let me first consult this with my financial advisor @nnnarvaez.

And Btw!! Good instructional & eye-opening detailed post @xyzashu. };)

@por500bolos No sabía que hubiera tanta envidia hacia nosotros.
Eso solo es síntoma de que hemos hecho bien las cosas y las seguimos haciendo.
Gracias por tu aporte.
Saludos.

@the.circle. De hecho no es envidia ni nada por el estilo lo que pudiese haber/existir hacia ustedes o vuestro proyecto. Ni tampoco nada nuevo que tu ignoraras sobre lo de de donde puede provenir la supuesta animadversión hacia este proyecto o el del que ya antes habéis fundado. No hay más que seguir el rastro de miguitas que habéis dejado por doquier en vuestra trayectoria para darse uno cuenta de hacia donde conducen.

Quizás solo un poco mas de transparencia, humildad y sindéresis en la elección/selección de los miembros honorarios y vitalicios de vuestro piramidal esquema y jerarquizado club. Y menos nepotismo, burocracia, mariconadas y arranques de prepotencia y mal enfocada soberbia ya confirmado, sin duda les proporcionaría mas apoyo y muy probablemente las herramientas necesarias para llevar a cabo este nuevo proyecto de una forma mas coherente y mejor coordinada y estructurada.

Si aún no lo han hecho, de verdad os recomiendo que lean con gran atención y detenimiento el articulo ponderado e imparcial que ha escrito @xyzashu sobre vosotros y vuestra propuesta. Y lo analicéis en detalle y profundidad para una mejor comprensión de lo que es aún perfectible y en que os podéis haber equivocado hasta ahora sin tener necesidad de defenderos tanto o emitir tantas excusas. ;)

Saludos!!

@xyzashu The basis to choose those accounts was based in our subjective perception: friendly projects, friendly people, important witnesses and old users who give valuable content to the Steemit platform , from our perspective.
We think we have the rights to airdrop the people we want.
We also are sorry if someone feels offended for not receiving it.

Answer his question. What was the criteria to get on your air drop ? Or you daren't answer?

Posted using Partiko Android

I did answer already, but trust me we have better things to be pending of someone like you who knows little about what he talks about, at least regarding our project.

Perhaps there wouldn't be as many questions if the "project" was clear on exactly what it was except to trick people into paying 1 Steem for a token, a known joke token, and "upvotes"

Well, for us is very clear what we provided and I think we clearly explained it all. Maybe it's truth that there is a lot of information about but I think it's easy to deduce that we offer a series of services, more than just upvotes @swelker101.
I repeat that 0.22$ (STEEM price) it's not an expensive price for a pre-sale period where we offer a 20% discount in our token plus an extra airdrop that multiplies the quantity bought per 20.

No resteem, no MORTYS please..
This looks more like a money grab. 💰
Do your own research and due diligence.

i was wondering what the Morty's were and how they fit in

Hi there, @shadowspub.
For those of us who move a lot in the world of EOS and its infinity of tokens, the MORTY $ token it's a token that has no monetary value but its value lies in the fact that the community uses it to "bribe" people to make certain things, such as retweets, resteems, etc..
That's the way they fit here.
Regards.

Well ... some folks on Steem don't move in the world of EOS. I have an account but only so I can stake Trybe tokens. The rest of EOS holds no interest for me. So, why exactly would you choose to use an EOS based bribe on Steem?

There is no problem @shadowspub

So, why exactly would you choose to use an EOS based bribe on Steem?

Well, why not? It is a way to make use of that token that seems even fun. Everything is to encourage interaction between communities or blockchains.

might make sense to you, makes no sense to me. Also, your use of the creative coin graphics in a manner which makes it look like it's endorsing what you are doing is deceptive. That also means the use of the tag is tag spam.

Well @shadowspub, in case you didn't notice we posted all the graphics of the payment methods we're accepting: EOS; CCC, ENG, BTC, etc..
So, I don't get your point.
Also telling you, the use of the tags is to autopost in their chains, in case you don't know that's the use of their tags.
My truly opinion: you're all just trying to chasing ghosts here and harassing a decent project.

I am not involved with the other projects thus made no comment on them. Your use of the creativecoin tag was wrong to start with since the post is not related. It's also what drew my attention to your questionable project.

How interesting though, someone questions or expresses a view it's harassment. You're either some sort of snowflake or throwing up smoke screens ... you can choose.

thetalentclub eh .. i used to follow those posts.

Hi there, @virtualgrowth.
We appreciate that you take the trouble to comment on our presentation article, even if your comment it's too misleading in its statements.
The only thing you can get close to something in the truth is that we are in a pre-sale token period for a week; that means searching for investors, who will enjoy great advantages.
If you took the trouble to read this article and to observe the project well, you will see that, precisely, this project is very well thought out, elaborated and with a lot of work behind.
The same way we appreciated your comment, we will appreciate in the future that you find out a little better after writing or saying things that don't match the truth.
Thanks again and have a nice day.

What project? What is this mysterious service you're aiming to provide? I see nothing but blather and talk about tokens and distribution and NOTHING about product. I have read this twice.

Posted using Partiko Android

Already answered you above.
Product is really clear to us and to those who want to understand.
The same way that many other new projects used: to create a token with a series of advantages, in our case, large advantages.

You answered nothing with nothing.
It's simply a circle jerk with tokens . Your numbers are BS and you are a scammernans dreamer.

Posted using Partiko Android

You answered nothing with nothing.

We think that our WhitePaper is long enough and full of data to answer everything, by itself, with a lot of detail and figures.
Thank you.

If you took the trouble to read this article and to observe the project well, you will see that, precisely, this project is very well thought out, elaborated and with a lot of work behind.

Oh! @the.circle. Most of us here already know pretty well that your project was actually well thought out and not just fortuitous nor randomly chosen how to baptize each one of its child branches. };)

https://steemit.com/steemleo/@the.circle/re-xyzashu-pvt41b
If you were upset to read our comment in that article that you praise so much @por500bolos, which speaks badly about us, for free, from the ignorance that its author shows and that we refuted with said comment, you would learn more about how to make a good project, if any in you want to make one in your life.

@the.circle

Para nada me molesta vuestro comentario en respuesta (rebuttal) a la publicación a la que he hecho referencia (que no alabanza) sobre lo que muy detalladamente ha expuesto allí su autor. Sino todo lo contrario. De hecho me alegra que defendáis vuestra posición. Para eso precisamente es que está el debate para aclarar la confusión.

No obstante, en mi opinión, no habéis dicho nada nuevo sino recalcar lo que ya habíais descrito antes. Y por lo tanto, sin mucho éxito en vuestro esfuerzo de rebuttal como para aclarar satisfactoriamente los "posibles" malentendidos (misunderstandings) y convincentemente despejar así las dudas y afirmaciones de los que os adversan en su evidente percepción de que vuestro proyecto solo apunta a reforzar de una manera inmediata, sectaria, unilateral y egoísta los bolsillos de vuestro CEO, adláteres y amigotes de vuestro 'círculo de talentos' exclusivamente y antes que a nadie.

Y luego, si acaso, con mucha esperanza y precariamente en el distante futuro y si todo sale bien según lo planteado/planeado estar en capacidad de cumplir con vuestras promesas y premisa de que eventualmente a través de vuestros "descuentos del 20% en la compra de vuestro token, vuestros selectivos airdrops iniciales, extra airdrops con x20 ROI, las rifas y demás jodederas sin mucho fundamento" van a poder compensar (recompensar) la fe, esperanza e inversión de quienes hayan confiado en vuestro proyecto y "por ahora" defectuoso esquema de obtención de ganancias (profits) y distribución de los beneficios como para redimir lo ofrecido a los inversores.

Así que como podéis apreciar, no soy uno más de los que opine que vuestra propuesta requiere y exige una revisión más a fondo sobre el como estructurarlo factible y coherentemente de vista a obtener el respaldo y apoyo de los inversionistas. Porque de momento tal y como está planteado y concebido, realmente deja mucho que desear para resultar atractivo para captar fondos. Pero sobre todo, como para poder evitar que la gente perciba vuestra iniciativa como un intento de enriquecer exclusivamente y de forma instantánea a su fundador/creador, a los miembros de su talentoso club y demás acólitos de vuestra cofradía. "Circle Jerking" como lo denominan los que ejercen la lengua del Shakespeare.

Por lo que mi participación, opinión e intervención en este debate, no ha sido más que con la intención de fomentar la sindéresis en todos los que hasta ahora han opinado. :)

Un abrazo!!

El tema @por500bolos, es que el autor de dicho artículo plantea unas hipótesis que desde su base son erróneas. Si partimos ya de esa base, todo lo que ha dicho ese autor es un enredo sin sentido que para nada tiene que ver con nuestro proyecto y creo, que con dicho comentario, hemos aclarado muchos de los errores que esa y otras personas han cometido a la hora de interpretarnos, como sea el tema de los 8,000 STEEM y demás barbaridades.
Por otro lado, a rasgos generales y si has invertido en algún proyecto alguna vez (yo he invertido en muchos y en muy distintas blockchains) sabrás que ninguno te genera beneficios de inmediato. Es más, suelen recaudar fondos con una serie de ventajas (como nosotros estamos legítimamente haciendo), salir a mercado y sus tokens suelen caer en precio respecto a lo que lo compraste. Pero no te importa, porque sabes que el producto es bueno y que esto de la inversión y de los proyectos no es un sprint sino una carrera de fondo.
Continuo argumentando que creemos de sobra que los servicios que ofrecemos son varios y complementarios y que sigo sin ver dónde ven ustedes las ansias de un CEO y sus acólitos de enriquecerse con las siguientes propuestas:
-Airdrop gratuito a más de 250 cuentas.
-20% de descuento y extra airdrop de x20 en lo comprado durante la pre-sale.
-Rifa gratuita que 4166SPHR al mes, para aquellos que posean 2500SPHR (cantidad que muchos tendrán gratis por el airdrop y solo tendrán que hacer hold para disfrutar de dichas rifas).
-Voto de por vida a nuestros inversores, que irá acorde a nuestro SP y que cuanto más nos financien mayor podremos darlo.
-Reparto anualmente en STEEM del 35% de los beneficios de la compra de tokens, sea durante la pre-sale o durante los años venideros. Y aquí puntualizo que es en STEEM, y que puede subir perfectamente y que gente que compró unos miles de tokens baratos se encuentre con que solo con el bote anual recuperó lo invertido.
-10% de los beneficios, en STEEM, destinados a obras caritativas.
-Reparto anual de tokens como passive income solo por stakear nuestro token*.

Cualquier persona con dos dedos de frente que lea esto verá que sí, que somos muy muy malos y egoístas. Somos ogros sedientos de dinero, claro...: ¡por favor..., es que es o para mearse de la risa o para llorar, vamos!

Además, para evitar en la medida de lo posible una fluctuación a la baja en el token, nos reservamos el derecho, como hacen muchos otros proyectos, de quedarnos en nuestra cuenta del proyecto una serie de tokens a modo de salvaguarda para no tocarlos y que no se vendan.

Esto es habitual en miles de proyectos pero aquí os pensáis muchos que tenéis idea de algo y sois simples aficionados.

Y que conste que no intento faltarte a ti al respeto personalmente con dicho comentario, que es generalizado.

La sindéresis no puede darse cuandos e parten de principios erróneos y se crea el efecto borrego donde la mitad de la gente ni se habrá leído el White Paper pero ha criticado sin tener ni idea.

No pretendo discutir contigo. Tenemos la conciencia muy tranquila y siempre hemos hecho bien las cosas a pesar de lo difícil que siempre nos los han puesto (como ya pasó con The Talent Club, que ahora se ha convertido en un referente y bastantes copias de él por ahí), y seguiremos adelante con este proyecto para intentar demostrar a la gente que se equivocó.

Sufriremos las consecuencias, seguramente, de vuestra inmerecida y errónea crítica hacia nuestro proyecto en lo que respecta al token, porque quizá muchos vendan el token en vez de guardarlo para optar a lo que ofrecemos, pero como siempre hemos hecho, navegaremos las olas e intentaremos mantener a flote nuestro barco.

Saludos.

Your post and some comments here lack information. Please present more supporting details as others have expressed concern for. Looks like asking for tokens with mention of "project". Simply making a statement of how things looked and open to ore research myself. But think such posts should be more informative.

Hello again, @virtualgrowth
We did our best to try to do the White Paper as complete, transparent and full of figures and numbers as possible, at the same time that we intended that all that data was understandable by people and there would be no misunderstandings, as there have been (although some of them have been on purpose by some paid persons).
We also tried our best answering every question here (although here more than ask us we have been directly accused) and every accusation, with arguments and trying to make people understand the advantages that they supposedly did not see, did not understand or did not want to see.
We also disproved all the illegitimate and free accusations that a Rep.74 user made about us here: https://steemit.com/steemleo/@the.circle/re-xyzashu-pvt41b
We honestly do not know what else to do or say about it, because I think that among all the answers we have given to people in the comments and that we believe that our White Paper is quite broad and well explained, there should be some clarity regarding our good Intentions and our project model, which is not, at all, neither selfish nor, much less, a scam.
We just try to contribute our grain of sand to help the community.
We're still open to anyone who still have any concrete doubt about anything; we will kindly answer and explain it, point per point, if such doubt is not deductible from the White Paper.
I think we just deserved some more respect and less free accusations when we truly go to community with a White Paper and a project with a lot of work behind.
If we had some bad intentions, we would not have promoted ourselves in this way, nor would we have taken out so much exposed data as we have already done.
As said, we've tried our best.
Have a nice day.

What did you say? Illegitimate and free accusations!!!
What's this in your answer to @shadowspub?:

You know, here are people paid to do what they've done, for your information.

Anyway, I won't like to go into any debate with you regarding that. Let's first discuss the project in question.

We're still open to anyone who still have any concrete doubt about anything; we will kindly answer and explain it, point per point

Okay, I've enlisted a few questions for you here:
https://steemit.com/steemleo/@xyzashu/beware-of-another-worthless-token-on-se-being-sold-to-steemians#@xyzashu/re-thecircle-re-xyzashu-pvt41b-20190809t075737832z

More on it later!
Thanks!

Well, we have seen less elaborated projects than this one with much less accusations or disrespects, that's why we said illegitimate and free accusations, because we go ahead with our project, introducing it in a large White Paper with number and figures and got called of scammers.

Our reply is here:
https://steemit.com/steemleo/@the.circle/pw0ly9

This looks like nothing but an attempt to gather tribe tokens from people to grow an account so you can take advantage of automating a curation list from your token holders. You offer no real service, nor do you explain anything in this post. It is nothing but a circle jerking sphere of scamming.

Well, I see it as another way that we, the people who create humanities content, can monetize our effort and dedication.

Perhaps those who think that cultural content has no value don't see service as useful. I do.

It seems like for them all the services we provide, and all the numbers and figures we provided, means nothing.
Well, a blind man may see read better our White Paper than some of these people.

Thank you

Hi there @derangedvisions. A pleasure to chat with you.

This looks like nothing but an attempt to gather tribe tokens from people to grow an account

As every pre-sale period of every project in the world, it tries to gather funds to be able to later give a series of services.

You offer no real service

Well, excuse me sir, but I think that these things can be considered as a service:
-Daily upvotes for life.
-Cumulative jackpot to distribute annually among our investors
-Fund for donations to charities or NGOs
-Free monthly raffles to our investors.
-Annual passive income, since our token is stakable.

In fact, we think we're providing much more services than other projects that are already working with their own token without so much accusation or condemnation from anyone.

It is nothing but a circle jerking sphere of scamming.

That's your subjective opinion, but let me say also my opinion: you're wrong about that statement.
You would like more or less our project, but that's far to mean we're scammers.
We have already a successful project supporting us and our trust, since many members trusted the same way to invest in that project and now are enjoying more than a 1500% daily profit.
So, please, be serious, and let me advice you all to don't make such severe judgments about the projects of other people who have a lot of work behind and very good intentions.

By the way, I think our White Paper is long enough and fully well explained with numbers and figures.

Other than doing marketing outside of the steem community, what is the ‘product’? If the proceeds distributed only comes from others investments, it sounds like a pyramid scheme. At least in steem there is value in the contributions of the community members. What am I missing here?

Nothing mate. You understood perfectly clearly!

I hope he did after my explanation, yes.

Hi there, @jdkennedy.
Well, you must be missing everything, I'm afraid, but I'm going to summarize it all for you in a very small paragraph so that way you'll understand it better.
"The project The Circle creates its SPHR token for providing a series of advantages, both for the investor himself holding them and for the rest of the community:
-Daily upvotes for life.
-Cumulative jackpot to distribute annually among our investors
-Fund for donations to charities or NGOs
-Free monthly raffles to our investors.
-Annual passive income, since our token is stakable."
And that we will exactly get it as you said, in the value of the contribution of the community members.
Thanks for asking.
Regards.

So why even this?

Why not just all hop on @trevonjb's @backscratcher? It's bloody free.

You don't need 15 different ways to extract value for doing nothing. The reward pool seriously needs to be gotten rid of and reserve that only for the worker proposal and witnesses.

This is just a lame attempt to dilute every tribe's token and putting forth more sell pressure on the current Steem price. Nobody who signs up for this bullshit is going to be powering up. Just like nobody signing up for all the other "free vote" services are looking to power up. But hey, go ahead, milk the mostly dead horse.

Why not just all hop on @trevonjb's @backscratcher? It's bloody free.

Hahahahaha @enforcer48.

Don't get me started with that backscratcher thingy to establish analogies, metaphors and comparisons here. ;p

Hi there @enforcer48
We don't now about that project you're mentioning.
On the other hand, your point of view it's a curious and unfortunate way to see our project.
It's a pity that after explaining so much in our White Paper you only get to make this clear that, by the way, I don't know how you end up reaching such conclusions.
We're just offering a token (wich one can be bought with different payment methods; some of them the Steem Engine tokens, precisely to stimulate the Steem Engine market and its tokens) that provides a series of services, more than a simple upvote.

You don't need 15 different ways to extract value for doing nothing.

I don't get that point. Maybe because we're not on the same wavelength and trying to chase ghosts everywhere just because some people that already hated us, began to comment lies and harass us.

Have a nice day.

"The CEO and his team members will only participate with the tokens derived from what they bought in the pre-sale and those derived from the Initial Airdrop that is made to the whole people chosen to receive it. In other words, for example, the CEO may have 1 million tokens in another account, but he will occupy the position of investor and the proportional distribution of the cumulative jackpot, based on what he bought or got initially airdropped, like any other investor. In this way, the distribution of the cumulative jackpot will be truly fair and proportional for every investor."

In other words, Guess who won the pony?

Hi there, @swelker101
Seems like someone downvoted your comment but, anyways, I will respond kindly to your hidden comment.

"The CEO and his team members will only participate with the tokens derived from what they bought in the pre-sale and those derived from the Initial Airdrop that is made to the whole people chosen to receive it. In other words, for example, the CEO may have 1 million tokens in another account, but he will occupy the position of investor and the proportional distribution of the cumulative jackpot, based on what he bought or got initially airdropped, like any other investor. In this way, the distribution of the cumulative jackpot will be truly fair and proportional for every investor."

In other words, Guess who won the pony?

Well, I think you misunderstood the point. That explanation is just an example of how the tokens that the CEO or his teammates may have, coming from their work to keep the project afloat, etc., will not be an advantage for them, since they will only count, at the level of enjoying the benefits of our project, the tokens they have bought, like any other investor.

Noones won the pony here. In fact we try to share the benefits of having a good pony with many people.
We are not selfish.

The point is, why the blue fuck would the CEO or staff be in on the "giveaway"?

The answer to your question @swelker101 it's because they're going to buy tokens at the same price offered to the rest of people: 1 STEEM = 1 SPHERE.
So, if they buy tokens, why they wouldn't also enjoy the benefits of being another investor more making bigger the project?
We're putting our own money to make it bigger and therefore a better place to everyone, since the bigger the project the better the benefits for all the investors.
