Has anyone been scammed by a crypto scam? Recently I was scammed $800 (not a big amount, but lesson learned). If any has a similar experience, please share so that we can avoid these scams.

No, but if you want to get into crypto, I recommend getting a blockfi account and putting cash into stablecoins that you’ll eventually use to invest in crypto. 7.5% return then buy btc/eth when you’re ready

Can you explain the scam to me so I don't fall for such things

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??
