For newbies in the crypto business, you must Know this. make sure you never associate your exchange email with your bounty account.  make this a top priority. i advice hunters to have more than 3 gmail accounts.


The good side of bounties
1; you will definitely make lot of money campaigning for good projects.
2; you might even get rich on the long term if you are a holder of coins and able to detect good projects.

BAD SIDE.

1; whether you like it or now, your social media accounts will receive login threat(someone trying to login to your account from a different location)
2; hackers will also play with emails that was exposed while registering on bounties.

3; if your account is not secured properly, you will lose everything. even your wallet.



Guys i just got HACKED on my hitbtc exchange account.
login location United Kingdom.
i never know u.k have hackers too.

I have my own mail account for each account. I don’t register anything important for mail for bounty. Even if they hacked the mail for bounty it would be useless for them.

Yesteday i did had somebody to log in my hitbtc account (it was from UK aswell )  , but i was using my old password and i knew somebody will try to login there anyway , thats why i didn't hold nothing there . Never use password that you was using in other websites , forums or even game profiles like blizzard , steam or something like that . My password was leaked public from old forum i was using like 4-5 years ago and i was dumb enough to use same password on some websites =D Ofcourse i did change it now and trying to use different passwords on each website now Smiley

This is the reality of bounty campaigns. With my few years of stay here doing bounty campaigns, there were campaigns that gave me great profits. But, there were campaigns that ended up nothing even after months of efforts. The truth hurts, but you need to have patience and determination.

Whether or not you use same email for bounties and on exchanges it doesn't prevent being hacked. The most important thing is being careful at all time and activating 2fa on your account. Also you made some good point about the bounty.

My wife's account was hacked, but the good news was nothing in there even a single cent. It was the effect of bad bounties, she hasn't made her password different and used it more than once in different sites. This is one opening for hackers to steal from you, especially with no 2fa auths.

I guess you got hacked because the hacker could get some vital information about you, probably from your social media account, and with a bit of social engineering , brute force, they were able to gain access. Best practice as you suggested is to have separate email for your sensitive account.

I will tell you this way you should take part in the bounty companies as an additional source of income as it is not always stable but I will tell you right away if you are a beginner it will be very difficult initially and you will need to try but if you do everything correctly with time you will become good earn.

My hitbtc account got hacked as well and since then I stopped using hitbtc exchange ,the safest bounty campaign is signature because you won't have to keep posting on your social media accounts that might get your accounts compromised

Several times, my account has been hacked with a different login log. the solution is to add security to our account to prevent hacking. other than that now the exchange fee is large enough to withdraw. it's good to avoid the exchange

The good side of bounties
1; you will definitely make lost of money campaigning for good projects.

How can this be a good side of bounty?  Huh

2; you might even get rich on the long term if you are good hold and able to detect good projects.

I agree on this, there are lots of bounty hunters who earn as much as $20k in a single bounty.  Those bounty hunters who hold DENT long enough to sell on its ATH could have bag a huge money.  Not only that, sometimes participants of unknown ICO can get a jackpot because there are few bounty hunters partcipating.  

BAD SIDE.

1; whether you like it or now, your social media accounts will recieved login threat(someone trying to login to your account from a different location)

This is the reason why I evaded social media bounties, the campaign wanted the participant to use their personal twitter or facebook account to participate.  Other who are wise enough to create another social media account for this are able to hide their own identity but the problem now is, it is getting harder to register fake accounts on both twitter and facebook.  It will get your newly created account suspended if you do not produce or upload a valid picture of you or who ever you wanted to be.

2; hackers will also play with emails that was exposed while registering on bounties.

Hackers is always a hacker, what else should we expect?  They will tirelessly bruteforce any account they suspect is holding a huge amount.

3; if your account is secured properly, you will lose everything. even your wallet.

Well I agree to some extent that even if we secured our account properly there is a possibility that it can be hacked.  But I think you missed not in this sentence.

Guys i just got HACKED on my hitbtc exchange account.
login location United Kingdom.
i never u.k have hackers too.

I am sorry for the news, I hope you do not lose too much on this hack.  I wonder how he get access to your 2fa?  Or probably you used sms 2fa, I read sim swapping is currently on the rise now.

These bad and good sides is always there but in my experience i always encounter the bad sides of bounties which is not giving the correct stakes or token that i receive but i think it all happen when you not find the right bounties that you participated.

Bountys are in general a big scam.
I never would buy in a coin which did bountys.
In fact it destroys the whole community just look at the shitshow from announcment.
They gonna milking the cow that long until we are all fucked togheter and they do it for
like $2 or something for a coin that vanishes some time after.
Everyone doing bountys is a piece of this scam.

EDIT:
There are no good sides only if you like destroying good things for pennys

2; hackers will also play with emails that was exposed while registering on bounties.

That's why I put 2FA in my account to prevent my account got hacked. Also, I using different password so the hackers cant hack another my account if he/she know the password one of my account.

2FA is the best security so far and it can really protect your email from the bad guys.
Bounties gives you profit but the bad sides are more than the good side so bounty hunters are having a hard time now to make money because of so many scam projects. Don't worry about the bad sides, just keep on joining good bounties and you can earn again.

I think it doesnt matter if you uses a single email address while registering bounties and use it on exchange registration as well just be sure that it has equipped with maximum protection the disadvantage of exposing your email while registering bounties are the unlimited spam on your account, just take extra precaution of your account by adding additional layer of protection. such as 2fA's Mobile number binding, authenticator app etc.

Thanks for your good advice with using a different email for bounty purposes to lessen the chance that somebody might be hacking our account in exchanges. These days hackers can come in different types and forms, though they can make more money hacking exchanges, banks and other financial firms they know it can be difficult so some are concentrating on users of the exchanges maybe using phishing to lure an innocent victim to share his login details. We should really be careful as hackers are always two steps ahead of us. By the way, anybody can use any location even if one is located in say North Korea.
