Usually those most in need of money are the ones willing to risk the most to get more. And sadly, in my experience, it’s these same people who put blind faith in the next “guaranteed opportunity” almost always lose in the end. Very sad really.
And with things being digital and on the web, it’s ever harder to catch these criminals. But that’s not a cryptocurrency’s fault.
Do your research. If you can’t, don’t give your money away to strangers.
Another sad thing in this world. What gets more eyeballs? Good news or bad, train wreck news that you can’t take your eyes off of? The community needs more good PR to let regular folks know what positive things are being developed and worked on. The fact that cryptos and blockchain are built around technology and software and computers makes it that much harder to get a full grasp of the subject. Again, people need to do their own research.
