The Dark Side of NFTs

Greater commercial viability and an increase in the trading volume have also resulted in an increased risk of fraudulent activities.


Despite Web3 being hailed as “unhackable” and “resilient”, money laundering, scams, market manipulation, and exploits are prevalent. Illicit actors leverage the fact that NFTs are primarily unregulated and take advantage of the lacuna in the judiciary system to exploit genuine investors.

The risks and crime stats associated with NFTs will be the focal point of this report. We will also look at the latest data and trends on other forms of cryptocurrency-based crime, including but not limited to:  

  • NFT Fundraising for Illegal Activities
  • NFT Scams & Market Manipulation 
  • Exploits
  • Global Regulatory Policy in NFTs
