Verdict

Although unlikely to be a scam, one should always be wary of Proof of Stake coins that do not have strong developer backing and strong communities, as the promise of "interest" gained on cryptocurrencies is most likely to entice those trying to turn a quick profit with minimal effort. They haven't even procured orangecoin.com or any related domains, instead using a free website builder, which is always a red flag. Serious companies don't use free websites. Their forum post at Bitcoin Talk is also not aesthetically pleasing, being predictably filled with the color orange and looking unusually unprofessional. While OrangeCoin does not appear to be a Scamcoin, it is most definitely a Shitcoin and should be avoided.
