Crypto Scam Websites Attracted Millions of Indians Last Year, Chainalysis Says

Date:

Indians visited scam crypto websites in droves over the past years, according to data from blockchain analytics firm Chainalysis.

The firm found that Indians visited cryptocurrency scam websites 9.6 million times last year. In 2020, the figure was much higher. Crypto scam websites were visited 17.8 million times by Indian users.

The top cryptocurrency scam websites visited the most by Indians over the past year, according to Chainalysis, were coinpayu.com, adbtc.top, hackertyper.net, dualmine.com, and coingain.app. The top five crypto scam sites alone received 4.6 million visits from India last year.

Indian authorities have been working on several cryptocurrency scam cases. Earlier this month, the country’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) seized assets worth about $5 million in an alleged cryptocurrency scam involving Morris Coin.

Cryptocurrency scams are among the top priorities for regulators worldwide. The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) recently released its “annual list of top investor threats,” putting crypto scams on top of the list. Furthermore, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently warned consumers about scams involving cryptocurrency ATMs.
