When it comes to money, security is undoubtedly one of the most essential features that any platform must ensure. We want to feel safe when we trust service providers with our funds and not to worry if they protect them properly.
At SpectroCoin, we implement a number of security features to protect our customers’ assets, such as second-factor authentication, bug bounty, and safety notifications. Another option that helps to improve security in our trading platform – SpectroCoin Exchange – is address whitelisting.
SpectroCoin is an all-in-one solution for cryptocurrencies founded in 2013. Over the years of activity, we have built up a community of over 1 million people and we are constantly working on making cryptocurrencies accessible to everyone. This not only allows our clients to have an easy and convenient experience on our website, but also grabs the attention of scammers.
At our company, we go to great lengths to keep our clients’ information safe. Lately, we have noticed a surge in fake SpectroCoin scam websites. Thus, today we would like to present some practical precautions that you can take in order to avoid common scams and frauds.
At SpectroCoin, we see security as one of the main parts that constitute our business. From our daily routines to the relationship with our customers, we are constantly working to improve our methods and make our ecosystem even safer. For this reason, we started a series of blog posts to raise awareness and share with you part of what we have learned so far in terms of cybersecurity.
Different sources suggest that about €8 million are lost every day due to scams in the crypto environment and the numbers continue to grow. A lot of victims who were targeted by cryptocurrency scams are thought to lack experience or judgment in the field. Despite the fact that cryptocurrencies have been in the market for almost 10 years, the question “is bitcoin a scam?” still lingers on some minds. The easiest explanation for this is that individuals fear what they do not understand: the exponential growth of the blockchain technology, of the variety of new coins in the market, of products to invest in or cryptocurrency-based projects to be a part of. This becomes the perfect fuel for most of the scams and malpractices in the financial field.
November 11-17 has been officially declared International Fraud Awareness Week 2018, a global joint effort made by business and governmental institutions to minimize the impact of fraud by educating and providing anti-fraud material to different communities.
