Concern with TezosHub (http://tezoshub.com/)

TezosHub emerged around June, 14, 2017 and claims to be a Tezos presale escrow service. They claim to offer guaranteed access to Tezos coins at a rate of 1 XTZ = .0002 BTC. This equals the Tezos Foundation recommended rate of 5000 XTZ = 1 BTC. So far so good.

However, the Foundation has offered a declining bonus program that starts at 20% during the first 60 hours or so. So any funds deposited at TezosHub will likely be converted during that time, and that 20% float will be profit for the TezosHub managers - not you, the early risk taking contributor.

Recommendation: STAY AWAY - this is at best an unnecessary service, at worst a total scam.

TezosHub is not affiliated with Tezos. You are advised to stay away. Additionally, someone is on Reddit advertising a “public presale”. There is no such thing. If one wishes to participate in the Tezos fundraiser one must do so through the official means documented here: https://tezos.ch/crowdfund.html.
