A good post for the newbies to the crypto world. Yes, I agree with the fact that you can not trust anybody on the money market. You have to stay sharp all the time for keeping yourself safe from any kind of scam. You also need to keep learning as much as possible for gaining profits.

I would also add an important piece of advice:
"Less nervous and do not give in to panic"

I will say in simple words, you just not need to trust ANYONE. If you do then you are absolutely fooling around. It is incredibly necessary to just follow the trend and do whatever you are comfortable with.


I just follow the stuff happening in the Crypto space and rest is all manageable. The current thing of notice is around Binance as they released the demo of decentralized exchange. So these are the things to look at.

I agree with all this FAQ and it's answers. These are the most important things to always put in mind wherever you are, whatever you do. That's why "trust" is valuable these days. We can't just trust anybody right away. It must be gained with patience. Always DYOR.

Yes trust no one, but sometimes taking a risk is a bang! My crypto friend introduce MyShield to me and so far I can say that this project is worth trusting for.

That's it. Nothing we can found in his/her merit history. That's actually normal and understandable if 100 merits was allocated due to the account rank (maybe Full member), but I don't think someone wanted to delete all historical posts to drop account rank to Newbie. Sounds mad. Should delete gradually if he/she want to do this.

If you are a Newbie member (that is, you have less than 30 activity), any images that you attempt to embed using BBCode will automatically be converted into their link equivalents. This is to prevent abuse, for instance by spammers. Your images will start appearing normally once you become a Jr. Member.
