crypto Security

It is no secret that crypto is in decent shape, and millions of newbies are flying into this space for the first time, which is great! Yet, sometimes it can be a bit daunting for these newcomers. Without guidance, crypto-land is often perceived as being complex and uninspiring. “If only I had some advice to start my crypto journey”, some say. Well, say no more! 

Because we believe in the power of the crypto community and trust that it’s key to the ecosystem’s overall success. We decided to launch a social media initiative where we invited crypto veterans to share advice with their younger selves to help juniors kickstart their crypto adventure. 

Behold, our selection of the top 10 tips!

“ You should own a cold wallet and a hot wallet…private keys are important..there will be a lot of ponzi schemes..beware..stay alert..there is no such thing as a free giveaway…do some studying before entering the market..??”
