I think that it's mostly people of the old school who saw their lives a lot of scams and are looking for a lock-up at every turn. Let's hope that the opinion of the society will change every year for the better!

People who are scam of course certainly a common, with scammers will make us better, and the number of people who actively scam of bitcoin must have a compelling reason, and usually they are originally victims of scammers.

Online transactions certainly require trust, and once a person gets scam then he / she will think that everyone is a scammers, but we should always think good and positive because there are still many people who can be trusted and there are many in this forum.

There are still honest people, but these people are indeed less and less now after many scam population in. It is indeed quite alarming things like this for the future later where honesty is increasingly ignored in various ways.

Because many people don't understand how much bitcoin can change their lives as well as give them a lot of potential in terms of getting a lot of money. As well as some mining companies are not giving the stakes that a certain person working for an ICO should get. There are a lot of risky things in bitcoin and other people don't understand the sense of those risks, maybe they are not aware of the good things that comes every failure in bitcoin.

I think it is just a part of being aware in crypto system that there are a lot of scams in this place. We can't blame the people for it is partly but not totally right because not everything or everyone is scammers. Maybe its a matter of injecting mindset and form it a beliefs.
That is right, we should have awareness with what we are doing and that includes cryptocurrency, we should be able to learn first what kind of industry and the advantage of it before accusing it, but most of us does not want to explore instead the don't believe the true purpose why bitcoin existing.

Well it's not a bad thing to be really cautious at all times with all the bogus and scams all over crypto right now. People would really take precaution if they think of the worst for every situation. Though I don't think it's healthy as well. Just keep yourself thoroughly educated with whatever you're planning on dealing with

Sometimes they have been deceived or threatened to say that the scam is all probably because it is widely reported that in the present time the scammer has become increasingly the cocker.

It seems as though there is a predominant attitude about people trying to do business that most people are scammers. We have run into this time and time again, accusing us of running "dirty" money or stolen goods.
We put ads or offers in various places saying "vetted buyer" and "respected escrow" and still get negative comments from people that don't even want to do business. They would just rather demean and abase and not add any positive thoughts.
I will say that we have had pretty good success in spite of the naysayers. Doing business in this way is new to most people and seems foreign. But we have plodded through and have achieved a success that has proved that not all are wrong.
There are people all over that are looking for honest services, and we have carved a niche for that entity. We know that there are scammers out there, but we are working to elevate us to a position of reknown.
Not all offers are scams!

Some people think everything in crypto world is scam because there are others who always make it look like one. So in order to avoid making fuss about the scam thing it is better to avoid spreading questions or news which destroys the image of cryptocurrency.

Not all offers are scams but mostly are scammers hiding and waiting for the best opportunity to take advantage on those noobs. Many people have no knowledge about the cryptocurrency had been the target on those scammers. Then, you can't blame them as many had been reported of scammed ICO and after they collected a good amount of money they have gone. If you have a good intentions and have good business propositions then show to the world that you are legit.

Do not ever think that everyone is a scam, rest assured that not everyone is scam, the most important thing when online transactions are ensuring the reputation of the person is good and if not sure then using the services of the trusted party is a very good thing.

I think the reason why they are saying bitcoin is scam is because they do not fully know what is bitcoin. They are not aware to what bitcoin can do and it is the reason why they they see bitcoin as scam.
Now a days it’s very hard to find a job and a lot of people they are involved in many bad things same in crypto there was some other crypto which were fraud they took money from a lot of people and now they are not going to return to its users that why it’s very hard to believe on someone but as far as bitcoin is concerned bitcoin is one of the trustable currency in world and you can invest here as much as you can to change your life.

There is no central gov to actually administrate transactions and such and so it is very likely that if you are scammed to not get anything back!

The reason behind their way of thinking is when people are afraid to loss their profit that they work hard. There is no safe in keeping you cryptocurrency safe and sound. You can't trust any person you don't know easily that is why they think that's why most people think every people are scam. There is nl guaranteed safetiness in online works.

It is because they will always think on the negative side or maybe they have no idea about bitcoin.

This is right but the main problem is internet. As this internet is best source of sharing positive news, on the same side, bad news are prevailing as well. So when a newbie or someone who oils little bit interested in bitcoins and wants to join that, he sees such sort of fuds and stories that are fake about bitcoins, so they consider them as scam. However this isn’t any scam and we can evident that.

People have different experience in life and some of them are bad because they did not manage to get profit or just being scammed by an ico that does not have really a succeeding platform in the market and that is the reason why we should knowledgeable about the market before investing a huge amount.

Considering how the economy is structured, every person now and then try to manouvre and get some money from an illegitimate source. For instance, last year was the most regretatable day I wouldn’t forget. I was sent an email that I should proceed with some fill of forms and I have the chance of winning $1000.00. I quickly did whatever they had wanted me to do with no haste because I trusted the campaign I was partaking. Before I realized, all the little tokens I had were nowhere to be found. Since then, I suspect everyone to be a scam

I think the reason why they are saying bitcoin is scam is because they do not fully know what is bitcoin. They are not aware to what bitcoin can do and it is the reason why they they see bitcoin as scam.
actually they want to get cheap price.no one buy bitcoin in high price.so they make fud or saying scam every where, in order make other people panic and sell their asset.
This is all about lack of knowledge. Definitely as you have said, they don’t know about bitcoins completely. They just think of this as a source of income that isn’t legitimate. Plus, there are some notorious news airing many times so that impacts badly too. This all and much more is just hidden and people need to understand this all by researching about bitcoins otherwise they would be remained ignorant.
