Stop us if you’ve heard this before: A perfectly normal investment was suddenly manipulated by someone who figured out a way to backdoor a digital asset. Within a half hour, prices swung wildly. Scores of investors lost massive sums of money, everyone’s faith in the market was shaken, and authorities scrambled to find out what had happened, who did it, and how. Of course, we’re talking about the “Flash Crash” of 2010 that sent traders...

In the mid 1990s, I received a heartfelt e-mail from Nigeria. It was from an emissary for a prince in dire need of assistance recovering a small fortune. For my assistance, of course, I would be compensated handsomely. I recognized the scam immediately, but it was the first time I’d seen an electronic version.

During the holiday season, one of the things my family does is give out lotto scratch-off tickets in cards. It’s a nice touch, an easy gift, and nobody goes broke buying them. Inevitably, someone wins $20-$100 on a ticket, and everyone’s happy.  The same can be done with cheap cryptocurrency coins and tokens. Will they make you rich? Probably not. Will it cost you a ton of money to own? Absolutely not. Can you have a little bit of fun with...
