Other Lists to Help the Public

BadBitcoin.org - a great list of scams to avoid

https://bitcointalk.org Wall of Shame

Get DCA Certified

Digital Currency Association Certification

What We Look For

Trustworthy - Can they be trusted with your money?  Is customer support responsive? 

Team Transparency - Do they list their principals on their web site and/or WhoIs?   Private Registration is ok if we can verify them in other ways.

Technology  - Is this project a true innovation and contribution to society, or just another copy of Bitcoin?  Does the wallet work (testing with 1000 coins or tokens)?

more available upon rquest: info@a-dc.org

* "DCA Certified" was already taken by the Diamond Council of America  www.DiamondCouncil.org  for certifying jewels.  So we use "ADC Certified" to avoid confusion.
