The CFTC Cryptocurrency Bounty Program E-mail
May 02, 2018

The CTFC announced that new cryptocurrency may actually turn out to be a pump and dump scheme. 

Typically, when a new cryptocurrency emerges on the market, the demand is very high. However, there is a huge risk that it is a pump and dump scheme. In a pump and dump the promoter quickly raises the value of a worthless asset and then sells it to reap the profits from the price increase.  The US Commodity Futures Trading Commission created a bounty program to encourage whistleblowers to come forward with any information relating to companies practicing this tactic now or in the future.
