The founder and head of crypto-daily.news Ivan Tikhonov speaks at the TECH WEEK conference in Skolkovo. He will talk about the risks and ways to protect against fraud in the exchange of cryptocurrencies.
In his presentation, Ivan analyzes the most popular ways to buy and exchange cryptocurrencies, as well as the most common schemes of deception and fraud. For example, inexperienced users can follow a phishing link to a fake cryptocurrency exchange and lose funds.
Also, when trying to buy cryptocurrencies in exchangers or in person, it is always necessary to think about physical security. Quite often there are cases when, when buying or selling cryptocurrencies, money is simply taken away from the buyer or stolen.
Among the signs that should alert the user, Ivan highlights excessively favorable exchange rates, a short period of operation of the exchanger, a large number of positive reviews from recently registered customers, messages about delays in payments and lack of details.
The founder of crypto-daily.news notes that not only users face the risk of fraud. There are cases of fraud attempts on their part, for example, when the client creates several exchange requests with the same amount, but pays only one of them.
In conclusion, Ivan Tikhonov advises to have a unique and complex password for each site, always double-check the details at each stage of the exchange and, if necessary, contact counterparties through several communication channels.
