1. Holders
Go to etherscan and put in address. On the page you just opened, look at the "Holders" list. The biggest holders of a coin should always be the liquidity pool which is usually identified as "Uniswap: COIN NAME" and the dead coins’ wallet, usually...
usually identified as "0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dead". Why is this important? It reduces the possibility of a #rugpull to almost zero, especially if the dead coins’ wallet is over 50%.
Also watch out if there are too many whales 🐳
For example, 10 wallets each holding 3% of total coins is a huge red flag. Abort immediately. A healthy new coin should also have at least 200-300 holders. If it doesn't, also abort immediately. ❌

"Life imitating art" 📽️

Saw a headline last week about the #VaticanBank being involved in some mysterious money flows, so decided to watch the newly edited #Godfather 3 #Coda


For those that don't know the connections, read on... Gives the📽️an added dimension 👀🕵️‍♀️ ImageImage
In the film, Michael #Corleone is effectively trying to break from the #Mafia life & channel his family wealth into something 'legit'

To do that, he tries to exploit an opportunity with the #VaticanBank who are attempting to plug holes in their balance sheet

#Immobiliare 💸 Image
In the film, #Immobiliare is a real estate vehicle owned by the Vatican & #DonCorleone wants to buy-in with his ill gotten gains & create a European conglomerate that will elevate the family for generations to come

Now for the obvious (& not so obvious) parallels with reality Image

Two years ago, a small #school district lost nearly $2 million in a business email compromise (BEC) scheme when an employee unknowingly sent a wire transfer payment for a construction project to a criminal, not a construction company. @FBIDallas
@FBIDallas BEC schemes usually feature scammers posing as vendors and asking unsuspecting businesses to wire money. These #scams cost individuals, businesses, and communities more than $26 billion per year.
Money mules are people who transfer illegally acquired money on behalf of or at the direction of another. They play key roles in BEC schemes because they move profits through their own accounts, shielding the criminals and the cash. Image

The thing about #bitcoin #scams like this is you can watch how much they're making, in real time:…

$113,785.66 and counting...
*sigh* The sheer lack of ambition of some criminals these days...

(Theory: no-one sane would want to 'take charge of' this shit-show, and only the truly evil would want even MORE chaos?)

Fraudsters are creative. While many of you are teleworking, #scammers are working to steal your money and to trick you into helping them commit crimes. From cryptocurrency scams to work-from-home scams, the #FBI has tips on how to spot fraud. #COVID19ScamChat
Cryptocurrency #Scams: Has someone asked you to make a payment with virtual currency? While there are legitimate charities, investment platforms, and e-commerce sites that accept payment in cryptocurrency, beware of pressure to pay with virtual currency. A photo of cryptocurrency mining equipment.
Investment Scams: If individuals offer you opportunities to invest in cures or treatments for #COVID19, they are likely trying to trap you in investment scams. The purpose of these get-rich-quick schemes is simply to defraud the investor. A blurred photo of two people meeting.

It appears @FlackoSemps #FlackoSemps has #Scammed a lot of ppl. He entices you to buy a shirt with a model discount of 50% off. Once payment method is decided — via his site or @CashApp — he asks for your name/address. Once you pay, he blocks you! #RUB & RT for #ScamAwareness!👁‍🗨
@FlackoSemps #FlackoSemps | @CashApp #Cashapp |@CashSupport #CashSupport, his CashTag is or was -> [ $Semps ] <-SS3. Name is in T3. This happened in 2018. It's possible it's changed by now, but perhaps you keep a record of prev CashTags which can lead you to his new one if so? 👁‍🗨

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

Appropriate regulation would help lend the crypto field the trust needed for it to flourish.…
2. While regulation regarding verifying the identities of those launching #ICOs is appropriate, @Google’s plan to ban #ICO and #crypto ads is just plain wrong!
3. In 2015, #Alphabet, @Google's corporate owner, replaced "Don't be evil" with "Do the right thing" in its code of conduct. Now, in 2018, @Google plans on "doing the wrong thing" by banning ALL #ICO and #crypto ads instead of just those found to be #scams or fraudulent.
