Bitconnect (BCC) was a cryptocurrency associated with a high-yield investment program that was later revealed to be a Ponzi scheme. The platform promised high returns on investments made in BCC, which led to a rapid increase in its value. However, the platform abruptly shut down in 2018, causing a significant loss for many investors.
Despite its notorious history, Bitconnect is often remembered for its promotional events, particularly a viral video featuring a highly enthusiastic speaker at a Bitconnect conference.
