Briefly about the week 06.03. News about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is in constant turmoil. It can happen that important information gets lost in the daily information flow and you miss important moments. This format is meant to fix that. We return to last week’s Hebdo Crypto news to keep you up to date with the current situation with cryptocurrencies.
What not to miss in a week
This week, our dear editor-in-chief Hellmouth Banner is not to be missed. This one uses the chaotic cryptocurrency market to launch a new utility column about crypto scams.
Welcome to your new column in the Journal du Coin. This time, we’ll put aside our natural optimism about the potential and future of Bitcoin and the crypto industry in general, to shed a harsh and uncompromising light on the sector’s less brilliant scenes.
Indeed, this section will aim to expose, analyze, explain and, if possible, prevent the various scams, traps and other scams that tend to proliferate in the shadows of the industry in their full teens, at the crossroads of new technology and finance 2.0. A concoction that perhaps makes the worst cocktail for the novice investor or enthusiast, but a bit of a naive amateur: if intoxication is guaranteed, the hangover will indeed be carabiner sometimes!
