We have noticed that a lot of fake social media pages have been created pretending to be LiteBit. These pages claim to give out bonuses to customers or ask you to give out personal information. If you come across fake/malicious LiteBit pages, or if you are being tagged by them, please report them to the social medium. Do not click on any of the links in their posts or comments.
Some common scams and frauds we have spotted:
We will never contact you directly via private messages. So whenever you do receive such a private message, it is best to block and report them. In this article, we will explain how to recognize and report malicious pages and channels.
Check the URL and handles. The official LiteBit Facebook URL is https://www.facebook.com/litebiteu. Any other URLs are fake pages. Most of the fake pages will have a long number in the URL, for example: "LiteBiteu-10558616120579". Whenever you encounter a Facebook page with a different URL, please report the page to Facebook. The page will be submitted to them for review, and hopefully, they will be able to take down the page. The URL for our LinkedIn page is https://www.linkedin.com/company/litebit.
Our official page’s handles are:
Additionally, you can find our official Telegram channel at t.me/LiteBitofficial
Whenever you encounter a page or channel with very few (most of the time, zero) followers and likes, this is a red flag. Most of the fake pages have been created recently, as well. For our Facebook, the creation date should be December 4, 2013. If you encounter a page with a very recent creation date or zero followers, please report this page as fake.

Unlike in traditional finance, in crypto you can truly own your money. Because whoever controls the cryptographic keys, controls the funds. That's a fundamental property and THE major benefit of crypto. If you don't have your keys, you don't really own your coins. If you deposit your coins on an exchange, you risk them going bankrupt. Instead, if you own the keys, then you are the custodian: we call that self-custody. How can you learn to take self-custody?

Bitcoin is absolutely secure. That is a sentence that is perfectly true at the time of writing. But this is not only due to the fact that its technology has been proven in the past but also because of its network and its constant growth in the last couple of years. That being said, one should never take the transaction security of a network for granted. Bitcoin allows every user to check and verify literally everything in its network, including, but not limited to its monetary supply and if a transaction is valid or not.' But there is also the possibility of fraud, meaning that an entity could try and overtake the Bitcoin network. In this article we will discuss how this is theoretically possible and how likely this is to succeed.
