BitShare.com is a bit too suspect for our liking. We did a bit of digging around into Bitshare and we came up with quite a bit of disturbing evidence.
BitShare.com, like many file locker sites offer members incentives to upload. This means they host quite a bit of popular content such as Hollywood Movies, TV Shows, Stolen Pornography, Pirate Software and even extreme Child Pornography.
In recent times they have been making statements for public consumption such as “we will ban uploaders of porn” or “we will ban uploaders of copyright files”. However these statements are simply obfuscating the fact that they reward uploaders of illicit content every day.
Read on a “bit” (ok sorry we’ll stop that now!) to see what we found out about BitShare
BitShare have been busy hiding away their affiliate and pay per download offers on popular forum WJunction however we did some digging and found two examples of their promotions on other forums. Below are two screenshots of BitShare canvassing for people to upload and be rewarded for it.
Another example on another forum.
BitShare.com offer premium accounts on either an ongoing subscription basis or for a preset period of time. They are currently selling these accounts via Paypal and through resellers who accept all kinds of payments. Below is a screenshot of their premium accounts page.
The sell accounts through resellers to hedge against losing their Paypal account.
You can find any type of content you like on BitShare. It isn’t difficult to find copyright and illicit content on the site.
Below we see a number of DVD Rips of Hollywood films being shared on the BitShare file locker.
You can also download your favourite TV Series from BitShare.
If it’s porn that you’re after then BitShare has plenty of that, pages and pages of links to all the porn you could want to download.
BitShare also have copious amounts of pirate software with leading titles such as PhotoShop from Adobe.
Most disturbingly, found far too often on these file locker sites, is a large amount of potential child pornography. It’s easily searchable but we wont tell you how.
BitShare is a File Sharing site that is trying to obfuscate it’s true nature since other file lockers have lost their Paypal processing or other payment processing methods. Unfortunately it’s all a front. BitShare have plenty of pirate software, tv shows, movies, games, pornography and child exploitation material available and they sell it at a premium.
We believe BitShare should be shut down, at the very least they should lose access to Payment processing and their resellers, who are just as liable, should also lose their respective payment processing methods.
