With limited regulation and mounting popularity of cryptocurrency and NFTs, the scams continue to climb.

Nearly 500 Crypto.com users lost 4,836.26 ETH and 443.93 BTC — equivalent to roughly $15.2 million and $18.6 million respectively— as well as $66,200 worth of other currencies from unauthorized withdrawals from a January 17th Hack. Crypto.com said that all affected customers have been fully reimbursed for the losses, but what about all the scams impacting investors?

We’re not just talking the big hacks.

Losses from scams rose 82 percent to $7.8 billion worth of cryptocurrency in 2021. Despite this, investors are still super optimistic about it.

Staying well-informed from reliable resources can limit your exposure to some of bad takes in the crypto space.
