Please I need help. I want to know if anyone knows about BitlyCore.com I have been running the full block for days now and it's just stuck at 87% please I need help.
Tons of red flags here.
- I've been around for a while and have never heard of this client.
- Browsing the site, all the pages dedicated to code or developer documentation are non-existent or lead to placeholders.
- I reached out to Will Binns whose name is given as the maintainer of the ostensible "Bitcoin client" Bitly Core on the "developer documentation page" (which looks like it was scraped from bitcoin.org). Will Binns tells me that he is unaffiliated with the project.
The obvious explanation is that the software is either malware or part of a scam. I would recommend that you do not install it, do not let it interact with any wallet backups, and regard anyone who recommended its use with suspicion.
