Nice trick, it looks like scammers are capitalising with the newly launch Bakkt bitcoin future contracts.



Code:
FAKE or PHISHING site - https://bakktlaunch.com/

And if you click on the link, you will the familiar scene below:



It will ask you to deposit a minimum of 0.1 BTC.  Grin. So stay away.

What I like most about scammers is that they are always up to date. They never miss any available opportunity to scam others.

But here, they are being too greedy. 0.1BTC is not something anyone can afford  Cheesy

Thank you for the warning OP.

They are surely in rush of getting/scamming quick bucks that's why they set the minimum to BTC0.1 lol.

Looking at the addresses on both BTC and ETH, fortunately, no one falls yet on that "obvious scam" and I do hope no one will.

Good thing they set up a high minimum. Average joes won't just throw that amount easily.

Well the good news, for now, is that nobody has made a single payment to neither the displayed BTC address (18hYaDXFpx7zfKb8mo62gyScmwZGEoBDnE) nor the ETH address (0x7A2BB19483e0df6fC7D5159e2F70480CfeF4C50A), despite their veil attempt at placing fake dynamic TXs on their scam site. Looks like it either lacks visibility so far, or that it is so bizarre that even the most gullible have not fallen for it (yet).

Edit:
Well some have fallen for it: 1 BTC TX (0.001 BTC) and 3 different ETH TXs (0.2, 0.017, 2 ETH).

Pretty stupid attempt to scam anyone, especially if they target those who can be considered beginners. They in most cases do not have 0.1 BTC, luckily for them. The others experienced yet know that this is an old method used by fraudsters, the only correct move is to report this page to Google so it will be blocked by most browsers and security software.

That's really most likely. The websites of these types of scam attempts(like the Libra one) has been quickly shut down lately. I hope this wouldn't last more than a few days. With that said, that BTC0.1 requirement though. LOL. BTC0.01 probably would've been more effective, but good thing the scammer is a greedy fool.

Anyway, reported.
