How To Beat The Crypto Scammers

It’s the 800-pound crypto gorilla in the room: crypto scams exist. That’s the main reason Facebook just banned all crypto ads, including ones that promote bitcoin and ICOs.

You’ve just found it — a promising cryptocurrency startup that few have heard of. It claims to be developing a blockchain system for agricultural commodities, such as fruits and vegetables.

Its goal: to raise $6.5 million.

It’s exciting to be part of the beginning phase of a company — particularly a crypto company. You decide to invest a little.
