According to foreign media reports, according to data provided by crypto data analysis company Chainalysis, the Ponzi scheme and other cryptocurrency scams involving bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies received at least $ 4.3 billion from investors in 2019. This is more than the sum of 2017 and 2018 ($ 3 billion).
In response, Keynesian economist, New York University professor and "Doctor Doom" Nouriel Roubini commented on Twitter:
- Quotes Daily: BTC continues to fall in volume, short-term rebound brings wheezing
- "Gypsy" hoards bitcoin, holding more than 1,000 bitcoin addresses and growing at a record high
- The secret history of Bitcoin: those who are willing to get a bitcoin salary
- Weekly data on the BTC chain: overall dull, Friday currency price jump triggers the net outflow of the coin over 4000BTC
- Viewpoint | Bakkt myth is being pierced? The disadvantage of not being a teacher does not mean that Bitcoin futures have become a "water dog"
- Valuing BTC through production costs, which will exceed $ 13,000 when halved
Only $ 4 billion? It feels like it should be $ 40 billion, because the entire junk coin market is a scam. In 2019, cryptocurrency scams involved more than $ 4 billion. The Ponzi scheme is the latest form of Bitcoin scams, and large platforms like PlusToken have attracted most of the funds.
Chen Sijin, author of Weird Wall Street and Weibo V, said that he highly agreed with Nouriel Roubini's views.
