"Fraud prevention - 'Multiple Accounts detected'
First of all: no one is suspected personally as a cheater.
Short explanation: yesterday we introduced a new system to protect our users and limit the rewards to one stream per IP.
At the moment there are 120 BRO per hour that are distributed to all Users who listen to an Radio Station.
Unfortunately, we had to determine that some Users had up to 40 Streams from a single IP address.
This reduced the shares of all other users - in other Word they cheated all honest Users that used our Service in the way it was mentioned.
Right now the Fraud Prevention System is not perfect and leads to unawaited Side effects.
We are looking for a 'healty-way' to protect honest Users and to enable more than One Stream per IP.
First I tried to create a account on Chrome, and it seemed to be failed and again, that is , both are not be established successfully, so I change to IE , and successfully build a account, but I got the wrong message said system detect multiple accounts from my IP Address , but I only have one account indeed and I tried deleting both explorer's cookies and it didn't work too.
my user ID: cool8676
@admin My friend, I am new in this incredible form of mining, I have my account and my brother is referred by me, and we live in the same house, therefore, we have the same IP address in different machines because de Internet provider.
I have notice that when we both use the radio on both machines the balance stay in zero (at least mine) I don't know if this can carry me some kind of trouble.
Hope for your answer to avoid future problems with my account and with my brother account .
Can we use one account from multiple IP? say i want to listen to radio in multiple rooms at home on different devices.
@jlramirezb One of you should log in under Opera* with VPN, or you should ask for 2 IPs from your Internet Provider. Then assign each IP to one computer.
This is only fair!
It is abusing the system to have 40 streams for one person!
if you somehow you share ip with others, and one or more of them are already using the site, multiple accounts will be detected.
example of ip shares:
Cyber Cafe, Wireless provider, Residential Network with more 1 device, VPN, Proxy and others.
If somehow, there is an ip share, then multiple accounts will be detected.
The limitation is necessary because some people were opening up multiple browsers at the same time to multiply their earnings, and that harms everyone.
And besides these people doing this "cheat", they are still teaching and motivating others to do it. As we have seen several times in tradesatoshi chats.
For those who use a shared ip connection and was affected, remember that it is the fault of those who were using the freedom of ip to do "cheating".
The bitradio site is a free form of distribution, it is not a right but a privilege for people to get their first "BRO".
Remember that "BRO" is a POS currency, and the official way to earn "BRO" is via "staking".
The site is just a bonus!
It has a pay limit, and when people try to earn more than they owe, that limit is reached quickly, so the distribuition is diluted, harming everyone.
This example may help them to better understand about shared IP.
