However sad it may be, dear friends, we are forced to admit that 2019 (even though it has not yet ended) can be called the Year of the Scam.
It is possible that we are too keen on the ideas of decentralization or the crypto future. Maybe the reason lies in something else, but the fact remains - there was too much scam in the current year on the Internet. It is recognized by almost all bloggers with whom I have to communicate.
The most annoying thing about this is that it is in this way that we can kill the crypto in general. If the level of confidence in new projects continues to fall, then despite the relatively high bitcoin exchange rate, this coin will remain, as one banker said, only “the fun of a small group of geeks”.
What is the main problem? Do you think the scammers who put this business on a grand scale? Not at all. The problem lies in us, in those users who silently approve of everything that happens.
Ask yourself the right questions and you will get the right answers. What kind of questions? For example, these ones:
- Do you still believe that all companies that open in the UK in 5 minutes are legal? (By the way, this question should also be asked by Boris Johnson. I hope that my British friends will do that)
- Do you know who is behind all the projects that offer to make investments? For example, I don’t even believe Telegram, because besides the name "Pavel Durov", I have never even heard of other names. And Durov himself prefers to communicate only with the help of bots and no one has ever seen his team. (By the way, I think the Telegram messenger is a very inconvenient resource in which any idiot can press the SPAM button at any time and permanently destroy all your relationships with other users) And this we are talking about the most “successful ICO of 2019”, during which simply gigantic money was collected.
- When you invest money, do you know exactly where and to whom this money goes? Do you have a good idea of the person who receives them and who will be responsible ( I mean also criminal responsibility) for possible fraud? Do you report fraud to the tax authorities and police? Do you do this BEFORE or AFTER you understand that you are dealing with a scam? Do you well understand where this or that project is profitable from?
I understand that all these questions are unpleasant and uncomfortable. But if we do not ask them ourselves, then the scammers will not only continue to easily take our money away, but they will also kill the crypt. Do you really want this?
