Les Bro, comme promis, voici les erreurs que nous avons faites en tant que débutant. On veut vous les éviter 🙂

Rappelez-vous un petit ❤️ ça fait du bien et 🔁 pour aider les autres 👍🏻
1) Jamais de #Futures, #Margin
2) Analysez le #Fondamental
3) Top 100 #crypto uniquement
4) Pas de #Swapping
5) Jamais de #FOMO
6) Ne jouez pas vos économies
7) Evitez les influenceurs "#ToTheMoon"
8) Ne perdez jamais la valeur de l’argent
9) Prenez vos profits
10) Pas d’affect
1) Les marchés dits "à effet de #levier" sont interdits quand on débute ⛔️

L'appât du gain est facile car vous pensez exploser vos gains grace à l'effet multiplicateur. Or vous allez surtout multiplier vos pertes et potentiellement tout perdre 🤕

Débutez par le marché #Spot 👍🏻

The latter triggered concerns among some people who suggested the team was playing with “fake” money but these rumors were absolutely baseless. The secret to frequent #winsfromzia is pretty prosaic and has more to do with math than with #scams… they spin the reels every day for 16 hours, boosting their chances to hit a lucky combination. he biggest jackpot hit by these guys thus far is a nice $528,800 on Push Gaming’s Land of Zenith. They also like Fruit Party,… Sweet Bonanza, and Madame Destiny Megaways. In case you were wondering, the name of the team simply reflects their deep fondness for a good beef steak.

New investors are seduced by the #moon potential of smaller projects & invest more than they can afford to lose.

Remember to always only invest what you can lose & take profits when you can!

[#Thread] Après une semaine mouvementée pour les plus sensibles d'entre vous, parlons éducation et terme #crypto technique.

Abordons ensemble la notion de #vesting

Qu'est ce que c'est ? En quoi ça consiste ? Est-ce risqué ? Partons à la conquête de cet univers obscur ⬇️
La définition du #vesting

Le « vesting » est un terme anglais qui se traduit par "acquisition".

Dans les #crypto, c'est le processus de libération des tokens des investisseurs après la période de verrouillage (#lockup).

Un mix entre la durée et la quantité de tokens reçu.
Après la période de blocage, les #tokens pourront être réclamés par les #investisseurs.

La quantité de jetons récupérer va dépendre de la courbe d’acquisition adoptée :

- Linéaire
- Logarithmique
- Exponentielle

Chaque projet possède son propre modèle de #vesting.

🔴La liquidez en las #shitcoins🔴
Entrando en shitcoins se puede ganar MUCHO dinero.
El problema es que el 99% son scam.
Una de las cosas más importantes a chequear es la liquidez.
Si quieres no caer en mas #SCAMS leete este hilo.
🔴¿Qué és la liquidez?🔴
Cuando creas un nuevo contrato tienes que añadir dos cosas.
🔸Cantidad de las monedas que has creado.
🔸Cantidad en la moneda de la chain (BNB por ejemplo)
Esto crea un equilibrio y marca el precio.
Por ejemplo 1.000.000 de #Shiba valen 20 #BNB

🔴El Equilibrio🔴

🟩Cuando tu compras metes bnb y salen tokens.
Sube el precio de la liquidez y de la moneda.
🟥Cuando tu vendes metes toquen y sacas bnb.
Baja el precio de bnb de la liquidez y de la moneda.

Y este es al juego que jugamos.

🔴🔴Hasta que se llevan todo🔴🔴

{Mini #Thread] C'est vendredi et le vendredi... C'est éducation party !

Un peu de vocabulaire avec le #rugpull en #crypto. Nous allons voir ce qu'est un rug pull mais aussi, comment essayer d'en déceler un avant de tomber dans le piège.

Détendez vous et voyons ça ensemble ⬇️
Le "#rugpull" est un terme anglophone qui se traduit en français par tirage de tapis. Pas très #sexy hein ?

Dans le secteur des #crypto, un rug pull est une arnaque où les fondateurs/développeurs abandonnent leur projet et s'enfuient avec les fonds des investisseurs.
La grande majorité des #rugpull se produisent sur des plateformes de #finance décentralisée (#DEX).

Ils opèrent sur ces plateformes car ils sont beaucoup plus simples à mettre en œuvre.

Mais ils existent aussi sur des plateformes centralisée comme avec Thodex et son PDG.

Telenor Pakistan is outright scamming its user base by auto subscribing to some 'Nazara Gaming' thing. They deduct 20rs or more each week even though you never subscribed to it. Telenor users keep an eye on your balance history!

#telenor #scam #nazara
Caught them stealing my balance because it always zeroed after some time even with no phone usage. Was suspicious since weeks, talked to their Live Chat agent who confirmed that they are deducting balance each week but would not tell me when it started!
#telenor #pakistan #scam
And #telenor agent said there is no possibility of any refunds. Telenor Pakistan is being run by thieves. I told this to my relative who uses Telenor as well and he found out he was being charged for Nazara gaming thing too without his consent. #telenor #pakistan #nazara #gaming

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?)

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.
