How to profit from a cryptocurrency pump and dump

Is it legal?

Yes. Cryptocurrency still remains largely unregulated and since the SEC does not class Etherium-like cryptocurrencies as a security, that means anything goes.

Who organizes this?

Groups of investors found mostly on Telegram and occasionally on other social platforms like Discord, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook.

Say you wanted to start your own pump and dump, what would you do?

What if you want to participate, but don’t want to start a sketchy group?
