What were the three of the Largest Cryptocurrency Scams of 2018?

Hackers and fraudsters prey on cryptocurrency and blockchain investors. Being such a new space, lots of people are not overly knowledgeable about it. Therefore, it becomes easier for fraudsters to pull off their crimes.

I experienced bounty scam.
I think it's not appropriate way to get easy coins.
Opposite, I prefer to buy and hold coins.

Why do you think that bounty is a bad method of mining coins? many earn huge money with this method

I completely agree. Only because of the market, many projects cannot collect sums, and bounty does not earn money. but this is temporary I'm sure

I don't think it's bad method.
I just trapped into bad situation, that's why I prefer to use other methods.

You are absolutely right. Bounty campaigns nowadays doing for ICOs the same what crypto pump and dump methods were doing for the coins. They create the feeling that the project is interesting and demanded and what is even worse, they grow tons of multi-accounts for spamming.

I think newbies mostly use that way to gain coins till they fucked up with scam.
