Are the reports open source? Where do they go?
Team members at MyCrypto do an initial scan of the raw reports before adding a website or address to the dataset. One reason we
protect the raw reports is because they sometimes include sensitive, personal, or irrelevant information.
Why was this database created?
The database was created on July 2017 as EtherScamDB(.info) in response to the rapid proliferation of scams that cropped up in
within the Ethereum community with the network’s rise to popularity. In 2019, we migrated to CryptoScamDB(.org) in order to
indicate our support of the wider cryptocurrency ecosystem. While grouping all the scams won't make
them go away, it will make both identifying them and taking them down easier.
What reasons do we blacklist a website for?
Impersonating popular crypto services.
Impersonating popular crypto personalities.
Sending user-input private keys/secrets to backend services.
Conducting a giveaway that requires participant's pay an advance fee.
Preying on, or lying to, investors of a project which can be proved without doubt.
Pyramid scheme-like language.
What reasons do we blacklist an address for?
Association with a website that has been blacklisted.
Receiving funds from a profiled security event (this includes breaches, ransomware, smart contract hacks, etc).
When do we remove entries from the blacklist?
When the offending action (i.e., private key harvesting) is removed, it has been reported to us by a member of the team associated with the blacklisted entry, and we have had time to review the change-of-status report.
If a genuine mistake is made on our part and has been raised with us by a member of the project’s team.
