Crypto Money Daily.docx [TOP]

This concept is similar to finding a free discount card in your mailbox to encourage you to visit a new store in the area. However, a crypto airdrop isn't predominantly about making the recipient spend money but rather raising awareness for new projects and services.

The primary reason for organizing a crypto airdrop is to promote a blockchain startup, project or service. By issuing tokens to users, the team can bootstrap its project and ensure a fair distribution of tokens among its community from day one. Moreover, recipients of these tokens are incentivized to increase awareness and help the project reach a broader audience once the token begins trading on an exchange. The more interest surrounding the token, the more likely it will rise in price.

Airdrops often gain traction by promoting the launch on a project's website, cryptocurrency forums and social media. This is no different from receiving a HelloFresh voucher in your email with a discount code, as those campaigns are designed to bring more people to the platform through a financial incentive.

Because recipients receive "free money" in their wallets, there will be airdrops that are nothing more than pump-and-dump schemes. More specifically, the creator issues a token and hopes there will be enough hype surrounding it to have it listed on an exchange. Once tokens begin trading, the creator sells their sizeable portion of tokens, crashing the price.

Another potential attack vector is the so-called dusting attack. A scammer will send a small amount of cryptocurrency to an unsuspecting user to erode their privacy. Then, the attacker will track down the transaction activity of the wallet tokens distributed to de-anonymize the person or company operating the wallet.

As a crypto airdrop is primarily designed for promotional and marketing efforts, it can be tricky to ensure you are eligible for future events. Every airdrop has individual requirements to assess eligibility, although most of them are easy to find. An airdrop involving a blockchain snapshot is often communicated after the fact, making qualification difficult. However, there are other options to explore:

The main requirement for receiving crypto airdrops is having a cryptocurrency wallet with a balance. One can't receive or claim an airdrop without having a wallet address. Using an exchange address is convenient but not suitable for airdrops. Instead, users should look into the various cryptocurrency wallet solutions they can use to store their funds. MetaMask is one of the most popular wallets to use.

The crime of money laundering continues to be a growing area of concern in the United States, resulting in law enforcement agencies and the financial sector devoting considerable time and resources to combat these illegal activities. However, many non-financial businesses and professions are also vulnerable to potential money laundering schemes. Real estate is believed to be used in money laundering schemes, making real estate professionals likely to encounter money laundering activities in the course of their business.

Money laundering is a three-step process that is initiated by introducing the illegal proceeds into the financial system, e.g., breaking up large amounts into small deposits or by purchasing financial instruments, such as money orders, and is referred to as placement. Placement is typically followed by distancing the illegal proceeds from the source of the funds through layers of financial transactions, referred to as layering. Finally, the illegally derived proceeds are then returned to the criminal from what appears to be a legitimate source, known as integration.

A real estate transaction can be used in any one of the three stages of money laundering. For example, if an individual purchases a home and uses illegal funds as part of the down payment, the real estate would be used for the integration step.

Generally speaking, most money laundering activities are concentrated in the financial sectors. For this reason, banks and other financial institutions are subject to anti-money laundering/counter-terrorist financing (AML) laws and regulations, primarily the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), and are required to have safeguards in place to help detect and mitigate money laundering activity. However, other industries, including as real estate, can also be exposed to questionable business practices and be utilized as a vehicle for money laundering activities.

Covered transactions include residential real estate purchases for $300k or more by a legal entity made, at least in part, by cash, check, money order in any form, a fund transfer or virtual currency. A legal entity is a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or other similar business entity. The GTOs apply to covered transactions in the following jurisdictions:

In late 2020, Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) over a Presidential veto. NDAA included major anti-money laundering reforms designed to modernize the current anti-money laundering regime. The new law mandates the disclosure of beneficial ownership information by legal entities formed under state law, and the law calls for enhanced information sharing among government agencies, financial institutions, and law enforcement. Legal entities will now be required to disclose beneficial ownership information to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a bureau within the Treasury Department. FinCEN is responsible for securely maintaining the beneficial ownership information. The disclosure of beneficial ownership information is aimed at preventing the formation and misuse of anonymous shell companies for illicit financial purposes, including money laundering.

Every real estate professional should be aware of certain identified warning signs of money laundering activity in connection with real estate. Becoming familiar with these red flags will allow real estate professionals to assist and help minimize the use of real estate as a vehicle for money laundering activities.

The presence of a single risk factor, or even multiple factors, does not necessarily mean the purchaser or seller is engaging in money laundering activities. The role of real estate agents is to be familiar with these risk factors, and exercise sound judgment based on their knowledge of the real estate industry, and when a combination of these factors truly raises a red flag, know the proper action to take.

Agents should consider filing a suspicious activity report (SAR), when red flags are present or there is reasonable suspicion a real estate transaction may be a vehicle for illegal financing activity. SARs are primarily designed for use by financial institutions and are a significant tool for law enforcement agencies to combat money laundering.

While the illicit finance risk for real estate agents is often mitigated by the involvement of financial institutions already subject to strict AML laws, the use of real estate in money laundering schemes continues to be an area of concern. These voluntary guidelines will help real estate agents be effective partners with law enforcement agencies in detecting and addressing the use of real estate in illegal financing activities.

Needless to say that having a plan before you start trading is essential to your success as a trader. Every experienced traders will tell you that when you enter the markets, you risk your money and, more importantly, your ego and confidence in yourself.

According to the FTC, scammers are using voice cloning programs to fool you into thinking it is your family member. If you get a call from your family member saying they are in trouble and need money, especially if they ask you to wire transfer, use crypto currency or get money/gift cards, HANG UP and call your family member directly.

As scammers have become more sophisticated in targeting their prey and using human behavior techniques to make you think they are credible, we have to become more street smart and beat them at their own game. We do that by recognizing their tactics and learning how to build a safety wall around our personal information and finances. Knowledge is power - and it is easier to prevent scammers from taking advantage of our inherent trust in people than to try recovering after they have taken our hard earned money.

Someone comes to your door and offers to check your roof for damage from the recent storm. When they tell you about the damage, they offer you a great deal for them to fix it for you. Pay them half (or full) upfront and they will do the work for you. STOP! Even if they have a sign on their truck indicating they are a contractor, it is very easy to get a magnetic sign saying any company name. These scammers go door to door after a weather incident to see if they can con you into believing you have damage. If you think you might, you should call a reputable company to come out and check your roof. Most cases, there is no damage but the scammer just wants your money.

An email hits your inbox from a seemingly legitimate company. Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, credit card company, a bank, or a high ranking official from another country. They might say there is a problem with your account and you need to click on the link they provide, or the high ranking official or other overseas person has a lot of money they would like to give you (you are deserving, they are dying and want to share their wealth, etc.). Company names are easy to spoof and the scammer really wants your credit card number or your banking information (so they can deposit millions in your account.) Remember - never click on a link and if it sounds too good to be true (like a stranger wanting to give you millions of dollars) it is not true.

You owe the IRS back taxes! Or so the caller says - either in person or by robocall. Who wants to be guilty of that! The problem with this is that the IRS never uses a phone call to let you know you owe back taxes, They send you a letter through the US Post Office. And they never ask you to pay through money cards or other sketchy methods. 041b061a72
