      As the demand for retail foreign exchange transactions is growing, scam cases related to foreign exchange and cryptocurrencies are also entwined with the market exploding. There are more and more scam cases involved in foreign exchange and cryptocurrency investment, and many foreign exchange novices have become the victims of Ponzi plan. These scammers commit financial frauds by investment projects related to foreign exchange, cryptocurrency, and international markets and promise traders high returns, and their funds always disappear suddenly. Due to the existence of these risks, the education of investors becomes important. Through Forex related investment education, all investors can learn the basic knowledge of investment to identify the authenticity of investment opportunities.
