These are the influencers who have taken a hit promoting cryptocurrencies

Promoting one or another cryptocurrency can be a risky sport, especially if your credibility depends on the behavior of these in the following months and years. In recent weeks, the value of many crypto assets has fallen to zero, being a serious problem not only for those who have invested, but also for those who decided to invest and monetized their influence on social networks in this way.

Regardless of the validity of cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology or the usefulness of NFTs, many crypto assets have basically been a Pump and Dump, the classic movement of inflating the price of an asset and then walking away from it.

On the other hand, the credibility of the influencers depends on their certainty, on the other hand it is true that many are also losing their personal fortune in many cryptocurrencies. In fact, it’s funny how the “red eyes” of many gurus have disappeared from many avatars.
