AllArk websited claimed to do all sorta ungodly things with no kyc and only monero…

I always smelled rat with that website. Now it appears to be down. Pending orders are not being honored.

    I don’t really trust allark either, and the truth is the XMR subreddit has been manipulated for a while by several prominent people in the community, including allark, majestic (who control elite wallet), cake, trocador and this weird war between cake and majestic has really put me off of both of them. I distrust all of these organizations as a result, even if I still use their services sometimes. But, it’s looking like they didn’t rug.

    Specific to allark, they always get a lot of positive engagement when they post but whenever someone organically asks about them its one bad experience after another reported. This is plain as day sentiment manipulation. I’d never use allark, I’d use cake pay instead. Or coincards. Cake manipulates sentiment, but at least most people who use their services are genuinely satisfied. I’m a little disappointed that their web service is not working and I hope it comes back up soon because I don’t want to use their wallet applications.

      Cake people are fairly tight but something about them just rubs me the wrong way, not sure why… Also, didn’t Majestic rugpull? Or did that get resolved.

        I’ve heard some people saying they think cake is a fed honeypot. Majestic didn’t rug pull, but they did have some weird shit where all their websites went down and came back up with new URLs, probably some internal takeover or something, and they maintain Elite wallet which is just a fork of cake, not sure what they bring to the table. Also they’ve been exposed vote manipulating on reddit.

        I don’t use either as a wallet, or swap services from majestic, but I do use cakepay over allark for cards as a monero to fiat compatibility later. Truth is everyone except localmonero/agoradesk seems to have some type of sketch going on and so I’m wary.

          Interesting thoughts. I don’t use any third party software either, it’s just a bad practice unless you absolutely need it, that’s my take. Trades should be done in lengths, not all at once.

          It would not be surprising to me if Cake is a honeypot. Anyone who brazenly encourages all of his users to download from Google Play is an idiot at best. Signal is also a honeypot in my estimation. Google Play provides the feds with near perfectly accurate metadata on who and how many are using apps that might break their control. if you have any further insights into why people feel this way about Cake, please share.

    The site isn’t down. If a site goes down for a few hours it doesn’t mean a rugpull lol. Calm down.

    🤔 well well well

    Apparently no one sent us the memo that we pulled a rug without having any rug to pull 😅

    Sure it wasn’t a DNS error? We will check on our end. :)
