Profiting off BitConnect

Tarrant, who live-streamed the video of the shooting on his Facebook page, also shared his 74-page manifesto called ‘The Great Replacement’ where he outlines his ideology (he describes himself as an ‘eco-fascist’). On the very first page of this dossier, Tarrant revealed that he profited off BitConnect, which is the biggest crypto-related Ponzi scheme. He used the money that he earned from BitConnect to travel.

The biggest crypto scam

BitConnect was a high-yield investment program (HYIP) that enjoyed immense popularity in 2017. BCC, its native token, even appeared among the top 10 cryptocurrencies during the peak of the bull market (the coin’s market cap reached a staggering $2.6 bln). However, the bubble quickly popped after BitConnect was hit with multiple lawsuits.
