In 2017, there’s a fad to start your own crypto currency. It is said that you could be a billionaire or a millionaire if you buy crypto currencies. But the fact that a lot of companies which are the publisher of crypto currency have no foundation, no company and no employees. It means that you can’t justify your investment on their currencies. Moreover, there are no commitments that you can earn your money back or maybe you can lose them all.

A lot of ponzi schemes have used crypto currency and Bitcoin in the last 2 years. They want people to invest in their currency and give them money. But the price of crypto currency is changeable and unpredictable. Thus you should be aware of risks when you want to invest in any kinds of currency.

#4 Selling drugs

Selling drugs is completely illegal. The U.S government has published Tasks Forces to combat people selling drugs. However, the majority of illicit drugs are sold online. The transactions between the distributor and the customer use currencies such as Bitcoin. Highly-protected platforms are used for safe transaction and keeping information of buyers and sellers secured. Consequently, selling drugs online requires technical skills.

In his video, John told us about a guy named Ross Ulbricht, who got sent to jail because he ran a site called the Silk Road. He had earned hundreds of millions of dollars per year from drug transaction online. That guy even hired hitmen to kill people that were conspiring to take down his digital world.
