During the 2017-2018 token sale era, there was a huge dilemma finding vetted tokens that were legitimate enough to invest and believe in. Many unvetted tokens and false actors in the blockchain space caused spectators to believe cryptocurrency and blockchain as a whole was a scam. Stories of blockchain enthusiasts buying tokens during a sale and either never receiving the tokens, exit scams, and false advertisement were very prominent. There was not a single token sale platform that would thoroughly review a blockchain project and help guide the business through a token sale. Blockchain really will make a dramatic change in the technology space, but all of the bad actors have left many eerie about blockchain because of the shady business models that were seen during this time.
Here are some of the top known ICO exit scams:
PinCoin - $660 Million
QuadrigaCX - $200 Million
Shenzhen Puyin Blockchain - $60 Million
Centra - $32 Million
