Cryptocurrency adversaries often use exit scam scandals as an example of the industry’s incompetence. What they tend to forget is that the traditional investment field is not immune to all kinds of fraudulent manipulations too.

The only difference is that crypto Ponzi schemes are typically too unsophisticated and usually aimed at people with little to no financial literacy.

So far, this hasn’t been the most successful year for the stock market. In March, it lost significant value, the volatility hit an unprecedented mark and staggering sell-offs completed the picture.

Alice from Lumi edition

Like many others, I started working in crypto in 2017. It was the golden age of ICOs and everybody wanted to get a piece of the pie by creating yet another unique and promising solution or decentralized ecosystem. And judging by the copy on their websites, I suspect that more than half of the participants had no idea what they were doing.

One of my tasks as a complete crypto beginner was to research and analyze various ICO projects and I’ve seen some weird stuff. Here’s a good one. How do you feel about “the world’s first rocket and space…
