The risks of crypto assets
The CNMV and the Bank of Spain published a statement in February on the risk of cryptocurrencies as an investment. “Crypto assets, including cryptocurrencies and the technology that supports them, they can be elements that revitalize and modernize the financial systemor in the coming years, but to assess its validity as an investment alternative or its use as a means of payment, it is also necessary to bear in mind aspects and risks “.
Some users, also within Twitter, accuse him of promoting possible scams or platforms that can promote addictions. It should be remembered that from Genbeta we spoke in the past with A. Díaz González, a general health psychologist and expert in gambling, who told us that “almost all the cases of young addicts that I have treated in recent years are people who came to the world of poker, online gambling or video games under the influence of relatively famous people“.
According to the psychologist, most of her patients have recognized that they started playing after seeing “advertising of footballers who advertise it on television, youtubers who play and record it and also who have followed well-known people through other platforms such as Twitch or other social networks or also casters (video game commentators) “.
