A story based on experience encountering mining and wallet scams in the cryptospace. It mentions one site in particular (QoinPro) I've seen discussed a lot.

let's be fair, when the author says:

Fake mining sites and fake faucet wallets are two well-established scams in the cryptospace.

he forget the biggest scams in the crypto world, I'm talking about the ICOs and many exchange.

ICO:

Ethernet.cash - SCAM

Hoverex.io - SCAM

ALFACoin.io - SCAM

exchange:

Yobit Scam withholding 10BTC

Mercatox.com EXIT SCAM / STOLE all the users fund - CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ONGOING
