By 2024, the global cryptocurrency market will accumulate revenue of more than 20 billion USD. It looks, agree, very, very attractive, doesn't it? There is a possibility that there will come a time when some regions will decide to completely switch to digital currency only. Could anyone have thought of this even 5 years ago? The world, of course, does not stand still, but the risks are also increasing. Digital literacy and financial competencies are required.

When business entities start using new digital financial mechanisms, they must understand all the risks. But it is possible to minimize the probability that the investment will be lost.

Cryptomongering – not a novelty, when bitcoin appeared, many scams became popular:

  • phishing;
  • fraud in social networks;
  • social engineering.

The lack of security credentials should immediately alert you. If you receive a winning email from an unknown domain, do not open it. And of course, quite often fraudsters demand to provide the pin code of the wallet, which cannot be done.

The scope for deception is huge in social networks. A fraudster may try to impersonate a famous representative of the crypto business.

It is common practice to engage cloud mining companies. Investors pay such companies the so-called subscription fee in exchange for bitcoins. Many of them work illegally. Customers lose hundreds of millions of dollars when such a company closes. That's why vigilance hasn't stopped anyone yet.
