By now you’ve probably heard a bunch of this and a bunch of that and are irrevocably tired and irked by most of the ill-founded cryptocurrency articles that clutter the internet and are no more than pixel fodder to the crypto dogs.
As currencies like HUH Token, Shiba Inu, and Floki Inu fall to the ever-turning blades of the knife-tongued internet we see, as a community, a constant need for scam alerts, scammers, and the like to counteract the idea of a true project… for some odd reason known only to the depths of the internet.
I, for one, would like something refreshing, a break from the ever-so-used and harnessed mould of the cryptocurrency market and in doing so, hope to shelve the overdone and redundant notion of one-size-fits-all…
After all, I think it’s what the cryptocurrency market owes us all for our dedicated loyalty, money, and effort of reading through murky, swamp-like waters of what these crypto machines call, laughingly, ‘journalism’.
Now, with all that’s out there in the often unregulated free-for-all we call the internet it can be easy to find dupes, black market attire, and the ever-present digital scam, as it waits for us in the shadows. Carefully spinning its web until the eager opportunist and the down-on-their-luck, last-dollar-in-hand type of person happens to be ensnared in the always-sticky silk of deceit.
I for one, am no novice when it comes to the earnest scam, having been on the less-fortunate end of one, from the promise of something, dangled by a well-formed-pretty-word and I sure won’t be the last.
So, what are we to do when the paid machine of crypto, finance, and the likes are all working to pull our attention here and there, and the ever-present call-to-action looms over the words like the sour aftertaste of liquorice?
How do we, as the ever trusting, sometimes skeptical consumer, know the difference between a scam and the validity of a crypto project?
When will the cryptocurrency market take leaps and bounds to inject creativity into their marketing instead of assuming that we all take our cups of tea with a dash of milk and two spoonfuls of sugar?
Can the answers be found by taking a somewhat in-depth look at meme currencies, the cryptos on the market often associated with scams, and the perpetrators of scams?
Or, is it possible to see the way through the thick fog of the crypto-journalist mouth-breathing ways by visiting what-worked-best for early cryptocurrency?
There’s only one way to find out and that’s with some heavy-hitting, for-the-pleasure-of-doing-it research.
In this article, I’ll be looking at some of the most-loved meme currencies like Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, Floki Inu, and more.
As well as, taking a peek at the early bird cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, to see what surrounded the release and birth of crypto and whether or not they set off a spiral of scammers and yellow tape.
Not to mention, a look at something rare, which seems to sit on new ground, where the cryptocurrency world is taking on metaverse platforms likes HUH Token, Play-To-Earn, and more.
With the ever-earth-shaking and heaven-crumbling desire to get to the bottom of whether the cryptocurrency market is really what it seems or if we’re all pawns in a rich man’s game, I’ll dive right into the thick of it.
How To Spot, Shoot And Kill A Scam
Let’s not mince our words here, the cryptocurrency world is filled with overly wealthy, know-it-alls with the kind of money that would make the Queen of England blush, so it’s not shocking that people want to get in, get out and get rich quick.
Though, it’s evident that with unregulated cryptocurrency it’s the wild-wild West of the Fintech world and because of that, it’s no wonder some lowly basement, spare-room dwellers learn some HTML, Java or Python Script. Creating cryptocurrencies that are nothing more than a hot-ticket to scam-dinavia.
There are some need-to-know ways of finding out whether or not a cryptocurrency is a well-orchestrated scam, and that’s by looking at what the currency has offered, attained, and whether or not you can track the currency and its life.
For instance, legitimate cryptocurrencies will have a handful of provable, third-party statements, assessments, and audits to attest to the validity of the crypto project. This might materialize as being from companies like Certik.
Additionally, cryptocurrencies should, first and foremost have a provable history before you invest, where countless, thousands of people have a track record with the crypto.
Do your homework, I would have capitalized, italicized, and screamed it through the page like some deranged cryptocurrency conspiracy theorist, if I thought I would push you to research before you buy… scammers grow smarter as the consumer does, it might not be so simple to see the neon sign of deceit to their blockchain.
The word scam has surrounded cryptocurrency from its birth, in 2009, and even with growing acceptance, it seems that the ever-evolving scammer has mutated and it might be a familiar voice telling you to buy a crypto scam, unlike the ill-founded perception that it would be a cloak and dagger man with a hushed voice and a poison apple in his hand.
Breaking The Easily-Shattered Mould
You’ve read the same phrases over and over again, to the point, where I now believe I’ve been indoctrinated into some kind of cryptocurrency cult, where the only destination seems to be the moon and I must worship its ever-changing face… we get it… you’re after success, who isn’t in this boss-lady-side-hustle-passive-income world?
Though, let’s be real, the crypto machine expects us to want the same, feel the same and miraculously forget we’ve read the same words in the same arrangement hours before the next article under the willful guise of ‘NEWS’ if that has any president in the cryptocurrency world these days.
It’s hard for potential investors to want to delve into the world of cryptocurrency when all they read is the same sentiment over and over again ‘buy now – get rich’.
Though it appears that when currencies deviate from this mold, they’re branded with the title ‘scam’… as you, dear reader, can probably see this creates a never-ending cycle of less-than-brilliant articles littering the almighty internet.
Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, Floki Inu, and HUH Token, to name a cluster of meme currencies, have experienced their fair share of scam warnings and with it see some essence of backlash because it wards off potential holders … even though thousands of holders already exist.
In fact, any scam currency will rarely last beyond the first deposit stage, and once the currency moons (as tends to happen) the greedy-hand-rubbing-bandits are off with their swag bags filled with millions.
Though these days, where a word can be bought with a slice of overpriced bread, it’s no wonder cryptocurrency scams are present, work, and unfortunately take the trust down with them.
I Take My Tea Black And My Marketing Neat
A well-written word can send shockwaves through the world, that has been evidenced through presidential speeches, classic novels, and more… but it’s becoming more and more evident that cryptocurrency companies hire anyone with language capabilities to construct their material and so, must follow a stringent blow-by-blow in order to see results over the internet.
My heart bleeds for weary words.
It seems that as journalists, writers, language-havers as they seem to be, might be stepping away from the molds they aren’t meant to break, and for that reason, it’s refreshing when I stumble across an article of deep interest as opposed to regurgitated words, sentiment and the all-important ‘sell-sell-sell’ attitude.
Though, it seems that as more cryptocurrencies come about and more journalists are hired to spin the wears of the cryptocurrency sphere, it is advisable to miss the pitfalls of re-churned wording and seek the diverse culture of cryptocurrency articles that do exist!
The Old And The New
It’s important that cryptocurrency and those who write on it, move with the tides and that would call for a more creative approach to the ride to the moon idea we’ve all read countless times.
As we move forward, with a plethora of words at our fingertips, cryptocurrencies must stand apart from the all to simple scam-tactics… that more often than not suggest to potential holders that there is something seriously amiss about that coin, even if there isn’t.
This has been demonstrated historically through the likes of Bitcoin, HUH Token and many, many other cryptocurrencies and meme coins… but the future can be different and filled with endless articles, cryptos, and the like that are no longer fitting the mold of what has come before, but reimagining the future that lies ahead.
