Many crypto investors have lost their funds in scams such as BKCoin. For instance, Bitcoinist reported that the DeFi sector recorded a whopping $ 678 million to hackers in the second quarter of 2022, confirming the risks inherent in the industry.
Surprisingly, these scams sometimes come in an official package, deceiving investors into thinking they’re legit. As alleged by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, a recent scam package is an offer from BKCoin and its co-founder. The commission has filed an emergency action against the financial advisory firm for defrauding investors.
