Too Long; Didn't Read

If you’ve spent time in cryptocurrency communities you know there are many scams out there. You’ve probably also heard people say only “idiots” fall for scams, or that victims somehow deserve to lose their coins because they are “dumb.” I think these attitudes are wrong. The reason people fall victim is that they are inexperienced. And even if intelligence were a factor, why would it mean someone “deserves” to be ripped off? This attitude is anti-social and toxic in any community. It also makes the cryptocurrency community hostile to newcomers.
