Avoiding fake profiles

It's pretty easy to create multiple fake accounts and siphon the money to your main one with a bogus 100ECU sell order. I can block major temp email providers and check IP's but in the end with some dedication and proxy / own mail server this can be avoided. Another solution is to use 2 step-authentication pretty much like your bank, but it's kind of a pain. So wat do?

0 0   GodKingJuncker I think this will become less of a problem as time goes on and memes accumulate more value relative to the 100ECU starting value. Few people will go through the trouble of using a proxy here, so a limit on spending all your ECU buying another user's shares for new accounts should be enough.

0 0   Anne Aunyme Accounts like this one: https://eurokeks.com/users/1201 are completely obvious as fake ones.

4 0   TheBankWins It's pretty simple, just put a captcha in the login form. ;)

0 0   Craduzak It will block bots from created fake and multiple accounts, but not real people

2 0   Aztek Maybe new account should have less starting money (why not 30 or 25) but also some daily incomes on a short period of time (30 ECUs daily during a week)

0 0   Aztek This should prevent people to get easy & fast money just by creating new accounts

1 1   Logicien Just implemented blocking on all temporary email providers since the temp mail cheating became pretty endemic (https://eurokeks.com/dashboard) Now there will be MX validation, temp mail blocking and a blacklist for those getting through the cracks. Got my Proxy/VPN/TOR blocker ready too, but it might block legit users so won't use it for the moment. I also can implement two-step validation for turning EuroKeks to make it bank level secure :p

0 0   trqx I guess that's why I couldn't create an account with my email provider (cock.li) and had to use my old gmail adress. I hope you don't block selfhosted mailbox as well.

0 0   trqx Could you add github.com sign-up support?

0 0   Logicien Yup good idea. Doing it right now.
