Even though the event has ended, but it is hoped that the literacy of crypto assets is not over and needs to be encouraged, and the Indonesian should understand the high-risk-high-return of crypto assets, its transactions mechanism, choose the right traders and coins registered on Bappebti, use their spare funds, conduct research beforehand and understand the agreement documents and risks involved, and do not believe promises of fixed/high profits.
