Navigating the world of cryptocurrency can be an intimidating task if you are not taking the correct security precautions.
In these articles, we take a dive into what some of the risks that can happen to a blockchain, like a 51% attack when a single entity takes control of the majority of the blockchain power and can modify the rules to their own benefit (like reversing transactions). We also teach you about Sybil attacks, which are attacks against peer-to-peer networks in which a single entity creates many fake identities to gain an advantage in the network.
Bitstamp also teaches you about security precautions (like two-factor authentication and whitelisting), or how to safeguard your crypto using a multisignature (also known as multisig) wallet. If you’re unfamiliar, multisig wallets require more than one private key to sign and authorize a crypto transaction.
Bitstamp’s guides keep you safe when navigating the ecosystem.
