Hey guys, I’m as frustrated as everyone else due to the many reports of people being scammed of their ADA (whether by youtube video, email scam, discord or otherwise).
So I’ve decided to build a tool to search and report scammer addresses. I made it blockchain agnostic, so that you can report an address on Cardano or on other blockchains.
If there is any demand for a product like this, my team will build an api interface for businesses, law enforcement and others to use to reference our database of malicious addresses.
Here is a link to the app:
We are starting to build up the database now. If anyone would like to sign up and even report 1 scammer address, that will be super helpful. (We created a registration/signup to help prevent bots and other people from reporting bogus data.)
Hopefully we can build a resource that is free to use for the general public to reference and help make blockchain ecosystems safer.
P.S. Yes, it is quick for scammers to generate new addresses, but this will serve as a tool to hamper scammers that try to do a video on Youtube or an email campaign that post 1 address for everyone to transfer their money to.
P.P.S. If you have feedback on how we can improve this, I’m all ears.
P.P.P.S. - If anyone is good at marketing and would like to help spread the word, then please PM me.
