we can always weigh the advantages vs its disadvantages. blockchain being used by many companies today including the coming facebook libra, its clear now that it has offer more benefits. the government for now may see it as a thread but if they start using it soon, they will see its advantages too. but there's always the bad sides just like any stories, the negative sides of it like the scams makes it more interesting for the scambusters.

Scammers will always go where the money is, if cryptocurrencies are more popular and there are more crypto users every day, scammers will try to take advantage of it, adapting their tactics and targeting crypto holders, it's inevitable.

Scammer and corrupt people are in every sector not just cryptocurrency alone, every sectors including finance, health and banking sectors have seen hackers steal lots of funds and datas, It will be highly unreasonable to criticise cryptocurrency and blockchain technology for these acts.

Every tools that was invented or will be invent in the future will be used wrongly,the point people are not getting is every successful invention can be used to do bad things,stop saying cryptocurrency scam is increasing and leaving banks hacks & scams out of it,cell phones & smartphones was build for humans to make communication easier for us but still scammers are using the tech to do terrible things like terrorist attacks,online romance scams etc,my point is no matter how good an  invention is bad people will use it for their own benefits.

Definitely the big problem is on the users who use technologies as a way to achieve something in a bad way. Every technological advancement of invention are created to help people into having a more easy, secure and enjoyable life and not to be used as a tool for illegal ways. On the other hand, these kind of users helps us into becoming more and more critical in making right decisions in order to not get scammed. These kind of people also makes other users or devs to create other ways into making other inventions that increases security for all users.

Yeah. It is all about how we use the technology. Cryptocurrency was created for us to have an alternative mode of payment and reliable transactions system. Blockchain Technology promotes security and transparency. That is why it has so many uses and future benefits. Let us continue on supporting these things and use it wisely.

I think that it’s not technology that matters, but people who eat to get easy money.  Because they are very miserable and greedy creatures.

There have always been two opposites in the world on which our world stands. Light and dark, creation and ruin. Therefore, anything, even the simplest things can be applied for good or for evil. The remedy can also be killed if used improperly. Cryptography also behaves in the same way, therefore it cannot be judged unequivocally.

my point is no matter how good an  invention is bad people will use it for their own benefits.
This makes sense but the problem is, we need to find ways to maximize the good uses and minimize the bad uses of that invention. Yeah it doesn't sound easy but if we don't try, then the bad will outweigh the good. It's just a Trump's tweet. Don't fall for it. He must mention the down sides of bitcoin to colorize his US dollar. It's just as normal as other crypto supporters and haters' debates.
Until the end of time there will always be haters of block chain technology and bad people will use any means necessary to get what they want

I am happy and i love the point of view of the original poster of this thread. You can buy a laptop from any company, that is no crime, but how each user uses it is what differentiate a scammer from other people. Cryptocurrency on its own is harmless but how each person use it is what matters

What you are pointing out is the society and it cant be changed not unless a miracle is happened. Technology are part of the changes we ecounter daily and every opportunity, there are two types of people who grabs it on a different way. One makes a hard effort just to take that opportunity in a legal way and one grabs that opportunity to scam people who makes effort on something new like cryptocurrency. We cannot change all of these people but we can have our technology be more secured to prevent them.

This is true and good perception towards things and tech as a whole. Blockchain has proven its worth and value since we're seeing tech giants/big companies getting into crypto and use blockchain to improve their system as a whole. This is why I fully support legitimate blockchain projects that help reduce costs of maintaining the networks, transaction fees, and electricity usage. Which in result will help the environment in the long run. But at the same time, there will be people who will always look at crypto in a bad way because of previous experience such as them getting scammed or hearing stories of how it's being used in the black market.

I don't think i can agree less with you. Every good thing has it's merit and demerit, bank are being asked now and then, as a result of this bank hasn't been criticized the way crypto has been receiving backslash from people, it's high time people start seeing the positive side of crypto and not only the negative side.

This life is all about dialectics. There is no good thing created that doesn't come with an opposite. Water and fire are essential to humans but they can also cost human life. It doesn't mean we have to stop using fire or water. because they can kill. A degree of control will level things out.

The idea of cryptocurrency is to give financial power to the hands of everyone without interference from the government. But if this is done, it will give criminals the opportunity to commit crimes without trace. So I think there should also be a form of control for cryptocurrency that allows users to transact fluidly while checking for criminal activities

l find this statement really means this, I'm under dilemma in such situations, the crypto investors can not be blamed. It depends on people's beahviour. How to use it and what is the aim of doing so. l don't remember who said it, but it was something so. lt was discovered a knife to cut something, but people use it to kill each other. It is the same thing in my humble opinion.

Every tools that was invented or will be invent in the future will be used wrongly,the point people are not getting is every successful invention can be used to do bad things,

To me, the fact that cryptocurrency has a dark side is what make the technology even worth more investing in. Although the investment has nothing to do with me patronizing the bad aspect like using cryptocurrency for drug/human trafficking or money laundering etc but because since there's a bad side to the technology there's also a good side and it's just a matter of time before the general public realized that to embrace the technology but by then it would be too late and I would love to be among the smart investor that saw that good side before others did like privacy, faster transactions, transparency etc to be among the benefiting cryptocurrency elite.

Very correct on this it's very noticeable the quickness of people to point out the ugly side in cryptocurrency and when ever a crime is done they don't give a Jack about who was defrauded or who the fraudster is but are quick to go about peddling headlines that are detrimental to crypto name.

The blockchain technology is perfect and has no undoing. The wrongs you see are from people utilizing and managing projects on it. Just like every other technology has been created to enable mankind solve its problems but how we use it to our own cause is now our responsibility

This is so true, it's high time people stopped blaming crypto and blockchain for crimes associated with it.  No matter how great an invention is, there must be a downside and that of crypto is that criminals take advantage of it, for instance recently it was reported that kidnappers requested pay in Bitcoin.

Crypto technology becomes negative because of the many scams and hacking. But we need to realize that in every technology has its weaknesses and advantages. It's just that we need to work together to eradicate actions that can harm others, without having to destroy technology.

We can still change what people used to believe about this technology we have been part to. Not because they used crypto names in some illegal actions, doesn't mean it is actually a scam. We can show it to the people who thinks that blockchain technology is useless and fraud, that this advanced technology is amazing and can do a lot of things like digital payments and databases.
