Crypto Scam Prevention — Part 1

  • Team Credibility: Check how active they have been on social media in the past. Look for their work history and make sure it’s relevant. They should be easy to find with a verifiable history.
  • Whitepaper: It should also be easy to find, readable, and well written. The use case and business model should be explained clearly with actionable steps. If there isn’t even a whitepaper, then reconsider investing. Take a look at our whitepaper for reference.
  • Unrealistic Promises: ROI is important, but it shouldn’t be the only metric referenced. Promises of moons and millionaires are not what makes a great company.
  • Advance Fees: If you invest in a coin, and the lister/operator/website requires you to pay a hefty fee in order to access dividends, or to “enter the next investment window”, or to get your coins out of a liquidity pool that you didn’t authorize them to be in in the first place, it’s definitely a scam. At best, you should sell those coins and never look back. At worst, your coins are gone.
  • Huge Whales: If very few wallets hold a large majority of the coins, there is a good chance that those wallets could sell the entire sum and nearly empty the liquidity pool.
