Regarding Cryptocurrency, Coinbase’s 10-Q lawsuit with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEK”) Reminds investors that investors should be careful when making changes to their personal exchange accounts that could be sealed in bankruptcy. Such investors would expect to be treated as a “non -significant creditor” during the bankruptcy of that exchange.

This means that assets held on Coinbase by customers will be paid to creditors secured by that exchange if Coinbase is unable to repay those debts at the time of bankruptcy.

In cases where your backup package is connected to the network, be aware of the sites that you allow uploading and the activities you allow through your backup package.

For example, a mint site where you plan to mint an NFT can be tampered with by hackers. That controversial mint system that requires your wallet to be hacked for the mint process can then give hackers access to your wallet because you agreed to a bad smart deal.

As a result, once a transaction is compromised by a wallet on a hacked mint site, hackers can send your goods from your wallet to someone else.

The agreement provided before permission will always display the correct information on your device key, so if you are unsure, do not agree to the process. When a smart deal is approved, access to your supply bag is given as a result of the permission granted.

Always try to install popular NFT markets such as OpenSea, so always be aware of your financial security and ways you can minimize security risks.
