Global freight giants, DHL has advised its agents across the globe to stay away from Onecoin or risk the revoking of licence.
There were reports of the company accepting it for payments from customers in some parts of Europe.
OneCoin affiliate Norbert Friedrich announced on Linkedin sometime in March that DHL accepts the currency.
As the “phoenix from the ashes” rises, the secret giant under the cryptocurrencies rises to a new glow. The world’s largest package provider DHL now accepts OneCoin as a means of payment.
This is interesting in that the opponents of this cyber currency repeatedly claimed that ONE is not an official cash because it is not officially listed.
The advantage for DHL is, however, obvious: stable or constantly rising price – and thus a real win-win situation.
On OneCoin’s points-based e-commerce platform DealShaker, a listing offers DHL delivery to “Asia, Africa and rest of the world” for a combination payment of “89.00 EUR + 9.13 ONE (89 EUR)” per kg.
Affiliates in Bulgaria, citing similar ads on DealShaker, also claim DHL are accepting OneCoin:
Meanwhile, in a bid to confirm the report, Germany’s The Gerlach Report contacted DHL headquarters in the German city of Bonn and were issued the following official statement:
“Since there are private DHL agencies, which only work with a license, references are made to the use of OneCoin. Proof (of accepting OneCoin) will lead to a “direct loss of the agency’s license”.
If DHL would be able to track which agent (or agents) is/are fraudulently representing DHL accept it is unclear. Ditto whether OneCoin will take action against affiliates claiming the same.
DealShaker merchants must be OneCoin affiliates in order to receive generated coins from the company and other affiliates. Unless the currency is publicly trade-able, there are no true third-party merchants accepting the coin.
There are warnings about the currency being a Ponzi scheme on the internet, with London police investigating the cryptocurrency and Italy having banned it late in 2016.
