The Blockchain technology provides endless possibilities for innovations and solutions to revolutionize our way of living. Like most tools, there are people who make good use of it and those who abuse it. To safeguard yourself from falling victim into investment scams, below list some red flags you can watch out for.
General tips to avoid investment schemes :
• Claims to give quick, consistent and high returns. Any investment that guarantees a high return on investment as much as 15-30% per year or 1.25 -2.5% monthly is doubtfully legitimate.
• The majority of your returns come from inviting other people. The more people you invite, the higher your returns. But do not confuse this with the Affliliate or Referral programs provided by some exchanges.
• No or minimal transparency regarding the business model or the investment strategy.
• Information on the investment is not easily accessible i.e. you need to register to find out.
• It is not clear who founds the business.
• If the investment involves coins, and that their coins are not listed on Coinmarketcap (website: https://coinmarketcap.com/).
• Their websites are listed on BadBitcoin (website: https://badbitcoin.org/thebadlist/).
• The company is not registered.
