0


Cryptocurrency is one of the biggest stories of 2021. The rise in value of cryptocurrencies has sparked people’s interest in crypto around the world. It has become a hot topic not only with investors but also with citizens. While countries have yet to legalize crypto, it is being adopted in certain segments (baby steps). The soaring bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have also attracted a wave of cyber criminals. In fact, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) warned buyers, exchanges, and payment platforms of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies of the growing threat from criminals who want to steal Bitcoin and crypto assets. Google also removed 8 fake cryptocurrency Android apps that scammed users earlier this year. These apps disguise themselves as cryptocurrency cloud mining applications where users can earn cryptocurrency by investing money in a cloud mining operation. However, the apps lured users into viewing ads and paying for subscription services. Here are the names of those apps
