Those users who transfer more than 1 BTC were guaranteed a 10% bonus. True, it is not yet clear what these bonuses are for and how to use them..

Cryptocurrencies are a field for scammers

 

Cryptocurrencies continue to attract scammers from all over the world. American economist, professor of economics at New York University Nouriel Roubini decided to remind once again what he thinks about the cryptocurrency industry and bitcoin in particular.

Commenting on an article by The Wall Street Journal, Roubini actually called the cryptocurrency industry “one big scam”.

Over the past year, several large cryptocurrency scams have been recorded on the market at once. Take the notorious QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency exchange, which crashed in 2019 following the sudden death of its founder Gerald Cotten, who passed away on his honeymoon in India. The official cause of the sudden death was the exacerbation of Crohn’s disease. However, the death of Cotten became known only after a few months. Allegedly, Indian doctors incorrectly indicated the surname of the deceased, so they could not immediately identify the body. All this time, the exchange has been accepting payments and executing customer transactions. When the alleged death of Gerald Cotten became known, more than 76,000 users were unable to access their wallets, and the resource was stuck with money in the amount of 190 million Canadian dollars..
