*Beware of the one who offers you help when you have not asked for it* \- an old saying in my people that has existed since the time when there was no money.
This means that fraudsters, scammers, criminals (call them as you wish) were always ready for the things we see today and always had the same goal – just another means.
Fiat money. Also cryptocurrencies now. Also everything that has value, for example art paintings.
If criminals try to take money from a bank with an armed robbery, does that mean that the banks are bad and that we should close them?
If a criminal uses a car to escape with the loot from the robbery, does that mean that the cars are bad and that we should not produce them anymore?
If a criminal uses cryptocurrencies for his activities, does that mean that cryptocurrencies are bad and that we should ban them in every country?
These people have a life motto and that is that **the goal justifies the means.**
If they can use something to harm a third party, steal money, they will use it.
I’m tired of reading the news that puts the cryptocurrency in the spotlight if a criminal tries to commit a crime with them.
