PlusToken is well-known for its dubious activity. It has always been classified as one of the biggest crypto-related scams since the industry emerged.
The PlusToken Ponzi scheme was purposely designed for the buying of PLUS tokens by its users, assuring them a high rate of returns.
As of 2019, the Ponzi scheme had accumulated about $2.9 billion in various crypto assets. However, the creator of PlusToken has since been arrested, but the accumulated funds are still circulating as reported by Chainalysis.
Considerably, several moments of huge price dumps experienced by digital currencies in the crypto market are possibly caused by the sell-offs of various tokens accumulated by the crypto scam PlusToken.
