Discussing with The Mint, Shashi Prakash Jha, head of legal and compliance at WazirX has asked crypto investors to stay safe from unrealistic schemes and offers. Crypto, like any money, does not multiply overnight and hence, if a scheme is promising unparalleled gains in the matter of a few hours as a gesture of goodwill, you should ideally stay away.

Sometimes, investors may often see a tempting offer posted from famous people or celebrities. It is important to learn about the validity of the post as hackers often pretend to double crypto value upon minor investment.

Jha also added, “One more way to identify a scam token is if scammers promising crypto giveaways ask investors to send them a few coins for validation of address. Another way is hacked or spoofed social media handles of well-known personalities promising instant doubling of crypto sent."

It is also suggested that investors should examine whitepapers, background of the traders, and their reviews by other people, if available.
